I stayed 4 nights for a meeting in this hotel: very nice and friendly staff, at the reception and everywhere.
The hotel is not too big, and decoration is everywhere perfect.It is in a perfect condition and very clean. My room was quite, modern with nice view on the ocean.
A detail: the elevator was rather slow to arrive, so I prefered to use the stairs.
Good breakfast, served very fast the first day but quite long to be served the other days. It is quite expansive: 4$ for a simple glass of orange juice. I would recommend to go outside for a quick and faster breakfast.
The hotel is ideally located in front of the ocean, with 2 nice restaurants both sides of the hotel.
There is a big and nice meeting room. However, no windows, which is a pity when being so close to the ocean.
If I have to come back to Vero Beach for hollidays, I will definitely choose this hotel, since my feeling about it is very good.

The resort has everything anyone could want. The pools are kept at perfects temperature and located in just the right spot. The staff went out of their way to help in any way. I will return to this resort for many more trips to come.

Returned again for a weekend at a great "boutique" Hotel on the beach.. The weather was not cooperative but the staff fell over themselves to make every aspect of our stay a great one.
Free foot massages by the pool with frozen grapes, free mojito on check in -- who cares about the weather!
Do not bother with valet if you can find a free spot out front (don't give it up -- walk!!) but still tip the guys and gals -- the look really dissapointed if you dn't let them open the door evvery time you go in and out while giveing you a cheery greeting. Food is excellent -- Cerviche is a MUST.
Rooms are bright, and modern with great decoration. If you splurge on a suite it will change youre life!!
Can't wait to get back there again

The room was nice, very clean, but my biggest turnoff was drinking glasses sitting on top of the toilet tank, very tacky. The bathroom was huge but no vanity or cabinets to put toiletries, toothpaste, toothbrush or makeup bag. There was no plugs for the coffee maker so you have to move it to the other side of the room where the plug was. There was one full length mirror next to the front door, there were no chairs or stools in the room, so you have to sit on the floor to put on makeup, or do your hair....again no tables or dresser near the mirror. Hopefully, the Estefans will take this as constructive criticism and fix these little problems. The food was okay, very greasy, we only dined there once and then went out to dine at local restaurants. The guest book says the restaurant opened at 5:00pm, but we had to wait until 5:30 pm to be seated, that's the time the restaurant opens. At nights, you may think someone is trying to break into the room, but don't be alarmed it's only the AC unit coming on and going off, its very loud. Either turn up the television or the radio so you can rest at night. The beds were comfortable and the service was good. I would recommend a friend going there but would warn them about these little things first.

Hello queenvaction,

Thanks for your review! By the description of the room as you provide it, I believe you may have been staying in an ADA room. All of non-ada rooms do have counter space and the non-ada king rooms have tables and chairs. Please know our general manager is working on solutions to all of your concerns.

Hello tharealist,

Thanks so much for your feedback! Love to see the PRO’s outweighing the Cons. Costa does offer the most Ocean Front and Ocean View rooms in Vero Beach. I browsed through your images and enjoyed the pics of your view. Most of the hallways have a large window that allows natural light to flood (and brighten) the space and the beautiful hallway sconces are reflective of the Estefan’s own home.

The 2 building layout are a blast from the past ;0) as we kept the original “foot print” when the property was re built in 2008. We wanted to be good stewards to the turtles that nest along our beach front, an limiting “foot print” change is one way to do that.
Thanks again for your feed back!

My husband and I stayed at Costa D'este for 2 nights on our way from New Orleans to the Keys for our annual birthday/anniversary trip. We truly could not have been happier with the facility, location and especially the staff. The staff knew it was our anniversary and we had a nice treat left for us in the room. The entire place was spotless without seeming "sterile", inside and out. Each person we encountered provided excellent service with a smile!
The Wave restaurant was fantastic. Great food and wine with beautiful decor and sunset view across the pool to the ocean. We enjoyed both a great dinner and breakfast.
The hotel is directly on the beach making long, romantic walks possiible at any time of day or night. If you enjoy shell collecting there are beautiful, colorful shells of endless variety.
We also used the spa for a couples massage. There was a very nice area for changing with any toiletry you could imagine available. Plush robes and spa shoes were supplied. Prior to the massage there was a relaxing area with comfy seating and refreshments. Our therapists were AMAZING!! I am so sorry that I am so bad with names and can't remember ANY names..my apologies!
I misplaced my camera while there and didn't notice til the next day. The staff had found it and returned it to me. I cannot say how much that meant to us...not for the camera but because of irreplaceable pictures on the memory card. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!
We did eat at the Lemon Tree across the street for breakfast our last morning and enjoyed it very much.
I would LOVE to stay at this hotel again and highly recommend a stay here to anyone who appreciates all the little-but important-details!

Room Tip: Spring for the oceanfront room...and stay longer than 2 nights!!
