“Fun Surprise”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

We stopped here without reservations on a whim and ended up staying three days in an ocean front room. What a cool place. The staff went out of their way to say hello and the service was great poolside. The grounds and modern feel of the hotel made it a fun experience for our whole family, including my two teenagers, who enjoyed the music and light show by the pool in the evenings. The rooms are clean, the view was perfect and Vero Beach turned out to be a fun little town and was not built up with highrise after highrise on the beach. This hotel was a good find and I would recommend it if you are not into the old, motel style rooms that seem to dominate the coastline of Florida. Only downside is...it was a bit pricey. But we thought it was worth it.

Thank you for your post.

I am very pleased to see that the "surprise" was also a "fun" one. Our goal is to offer our guests an experience beyond their imagination. It sounds that you had one of those experiences. I will be sure to pass your comments on to our staff as they would be very pleased to hear that they have done their job to your staisfaction.

More frequent stays will certainly make Costa d'Este more affordable. We offer repeat guest rate. So then next time you call, please ask our reservationist for this rate. We would love to have you return and enjoy the ocean and the music.

Best,

My wife and I just returned from a 3 day trip to this cool little jewel of a beachfront hotel. It was difficult to leave! The staff was lovely, the rooms sleek and contemporary without feeling stark and the view as good as it gets! The Wave Restaurant delivered perfection at every meal. Breakfast....awesome....loved the palomilla hash.Dinner, well....without a doubt the BEST paella on the planet. The staff was attentive and personable from Colleen to Amanda, Merry and Becca. They could not do enough for us! Loved the poolside lounger beds and the bar staff was wonderful too...Megan and Lauren took great care of us. No doubt about it....this is a Rock Star experience!

This hotel has a very inviting, modern lobby. Check in was a bit slow...no clear direction was provided as to how to reach our room. Rooms are confusingly numbered, so next time I know to specifically ask. Room itself very clean & bright.

Breakfast was expensive in hotel, as well as few drinks at bar. We checked in around 5pm & were provided free drink coupons that we attempted to use & were told they expired at 4pm.

Easy access to beach from pool area. Awesome ocean views w/ comfortable seating on balcony. Would definitely stay here again - and have business trip planned for next month with stay here as well.

We do have beautiful ocean views, particularly from our fifth floor. So the next time you visit Costa d'Este be sure you ask for a room on the upper floor and enjoy the view. Thank you for your post and kind words. We look forward to having you visit again our Personal Luxury Resort in beautiful Vero Beach.

This is a nice hotel that offers something different than the typical chain. I enjoyed the pool area which was small but nice, and it's right on the beach which is great. I'd stay again but only if they honored a few requests regarding my room: For instance, mine was 'ocean view' but mainly overlooked the top of another building. No big deal, but not want you want to look at when lounging on the balcony. In addition, my room had NO chair or desk which was really awkward -- no place to eat the room service dinner or use your laptop other than the bed. The decor was very sleek and minimalist (modern furniture, marble floor, platform bed, etc). If you prefer that 'warm and cozy' feeling this is probably not the place for you. The room service from the hotel restaurant was just ok. I loved the bathroom which featured a jetted tub and multiple shower heads, it had a luxurious feel. The staff was polite. All in all I had a good experience, with a few changes I would have rated it 4 stars instead of 3

Room Tip: ask for a room with seating and not overlooking the top of the lower level.

I have always been scared to get in the ocean but was intrigued by the Sharkbait services at the resort. I met the guy Scot who runs it and he made me feel very comfortable to get out and enjoy the water! WOW!!!! I am glad he did...AND can't to go back and do it again! If you stay at this resort...MAKE sure you go and meet him!

This review is specifically for the kayaking experience we had from the hotel. Scott our guide was amazing. He was very cautious and made sure we were safe. He took the time to answer all our questions and provide excellent advice. I highly recommend taking advantage of this and for the price it's hard to refuse.

Thank you for commenting on your visit to Costa d'Este and your experience in Kayaking. We started the service this year and have had excellent comments on Scott. He definitley knows the waters here real well and we have received numerous compliments about his "exciting expeditions". Please come back and receive a prior guest's favorable rates.

So sorry to have to write this review. We live locally and went to celebrate 2 birthdays and Father's Day with friends who drove 45 miles to get to us. What a disappointment!
Was suppose to be cuban food..well I can prepare better and I am an Italian cook~ bland, skirt steak. Sticky white rice (should have been yellow), black beans gluey from a can. Pasta FULL of oil. Salmon cooked ok, but very small portion. Restaurant over looks pool area, and not very appetizing. The ocean is beyond but can barely see. Wait staff was friendly, but lacked in attentiveness. Had to ask for everything. Beings we are local and have many other choices, this will be our only trip to this place. Sad to say. Think twice about making this restaurant a place to go for special occasion. Hotel entrance is lovely but food is a thumbs down!
