Reviewed March 24, 2008

After reading a few good reviews here and in Frommers, we checked out their website and pictures. We ended up staying one night during our baseball vacation, and would eagerly come back anytime. This is what a boutique hotel should be.

Reservations Process: There's no online booking tool, which was kind of disappointing, but when we called during a weekday, we got the owner (Boris) on the line and he took our number, and called me back within an hour, as promised with room availability and information. We booked and promptly got a confirmation e-mail. The verbal directions to the hotel were also helpful.

Rooms: We got the room pictured in the website. Room 123. It was even better than the pictures. They've taken an old motel and remodeled all the studio rooms into something really beautiful. The furniture was wood pieces in 19th century style; The bedding was really plush with great down pillows; the linens on the daybed were especially good. Nice waffle weave robes in the closet.

The bathroom featured a nice mediterranean tile vanity with bowl sink. Shower and tub were new, fitting for a 2006 renovation. And there was a little kitchenette by the door with microwave, refrigerator/minibar, sink and dishes. The doors all open out to the outside, motel style, with modern electronic locks (look like memory cards). The room numbers are all mediterranean tiles Rooms also have a safe.

Each room supposedly has its own theme and decor. The art on the wall is all for sale. Ours is what I'd describe as Architectural Digest. Nothing modern, nothing frou-frou.

Location: The property is located on Ocean Dr on the non-beach side. The road is pretty quiet there, so you can just walk across it (barely 2 lanes) to the beach access pathway. The beach there was pristine and not very crowded. Nice sand and water with a few waves. The rest of downtown is about a mile up the road.

There's a small swimming pool in their courtyard with heaters and lounge chairs. The commons area are all covered in tile or pavers, giving it a very sophisticated look. (even the parking lot)

Service: We only stayed one night so couldn't comment much other than to say check in and check out were convenient with the staff members in the lobby area.

Restaurant: They are very proud of their restaurant and bar onsite, the Maison Martinique and Havana Nights. It was closed on the Sunday night we were there, but the menu looked real enticing.

Other items: I overheard on the phone that they are pet-friendly. The parking lot is small. Not a big problem, but be considerate if you're driving a big SUV. Their TVs have DVD and VCR built in, as well as a very comprehensive cable TV selection.

There's only about 16 rooms on the property

This place used to be the old Riviera Inn and it's totally night and day from that. We looked at a photo album they keep of before and after and it's amazing what some good landscaping, fresh paint, quality furnishings and a total rehab can do to a property. I wouldn't hesitate again paying $300 a night for a room here.

My wife and I (both age 46) found this hotel while doing a search for hotels in Vero Beach via Google Earth. We were not disappointed with our find! This is Vero Beach’s best kept secret. Tucked away in Vero’s South Beach neighborhood, we did not have the noise and crowds that you would expect in Florida over Spring break. The rooms were nothing short of outstanding. Extremely clean, well lit and tastefully decorated. The rooms have the little things that the big chain hotels do not. Overhead fans and great air-conditioners; which are a must in Florida, standard cable TV, refrigerator, coffee, pot, microwave and free hi-speed wireless internet. The bed was outstanding, as was the pool. No two rooms are alike. Boris and his staff are wonderful! There is a great French restaurant on site, along with a piano bar. There are also great restaurants within a very short walking distance. Rip’s, the Place for Ribs was my personal favorite. These are the kind of places that are frequented by locals, who are extremely friendly. Did I mention that the ocean is right across the street? If you are looking for a nice quiet getaway, you have found it. This was by far the most quiet and peaceful vacation we have taken.

The Caribbean Court is a Tropical Paradise Retreat, a newly renovated "boutique hotel". We loved our stay here, where a door from our room led us through lush tropical plants to the pool or to the walkway to the ocean. The bedding was luxurious and comfortable, and a bowl of fresh fruit welcomed us in our room. Our only regret is that we were unable to enjoy the highly recommended dining room due to no reservations available, a testimony to it's popularity. Hats off to Boris for his vision in providing a paradise for his guests.

Dear Pats4U!

Thank you for your visit to The Caribbean Court Resort. Surly we are "Tropical Paradise Retreat" you can bet on that! You are right we have lots of tropical plants on our property, we do have beach access very close. We hear a lot of compliments about our beds and bedding sets. You are absolutely right, hats off to Boris for creating paradise for everybody!

We've just returned from our second stay at the Caribbean Court Boutique Hotel in Vero Beach, Florida and we are already booked for two more visits in the near future. This has quickly become our new favorite place to stay! We love the Vero Beach area and have visited quite often, but we’ve never really “fell in love” with any of the local hotels. Everywhere else we’ve stayed seemed adequate but this hotel has them all beat, hands down. We love the wonderful combination of luxury and comfort without all the pretentiousness. The rooms are beautifully appointed with antiques (no two rooms are exactly the same). The beds are so dreamy with pillow top mattresses and luxurious high quality linens you can't help but have a wonderful night's rest. The pool area is small and intimate and in the evenings, they light tiki torches around the pool which makes for a very romantic setting. The grounds and gardens are simply gorgeous! This would make a wonderful place for a wedding. The staff is very attentive and work tirelessly to insure every need is met. The rooms we stayed in had a small kitchen-ette type area equipped with a small refrigerator, coffee pot, and other assorted kitchen items that made for a very comfortable stay. The beach is just a short walk across the street and is a great example of the beautiful beaches of the Treasure Coast. Simply put, this is a beautiful, romantic, and comfortable place to stay. There is also a restaurant on site which we have yet to try but if it’s anything like the hotel, we’re positive we’ll love that, too. We're counting down the days until our next visit......
