Few Florida beach towns can compete with the laid-back but upscale appeal of Vero Beach, a village of snowbirds and surfers about 140 miles north of Miami along the Treasure Coast. Opened in 2007, the 113-room property was originally a condo community, so the rooms are spacious. The interiors nod to a gracious colonial past, with hardwood furnishings and a muted modern palette.
Bed and Bath
Dark wood shutters and furnishings conjure a West Indies feel, while natural fiber carpets, smooth Jerusalem stone floors and a slate-blue/chocolate color scheme keep things contemporary-cool. The granite and marble bathrooms are extra roomy with glass-enclosed rain showers, fluffy robes and makeup mirrors.
Common areas at the hotel include a pool and hot tub on the main deck, with access down to the beach (where lounge chairs and umbrellas are provided), an ocean-view terrace with a fire pit and a lounge area. The spa has steamrooms and offers all the usual treatments, and there’s a good-size fitness room. Of the two on-site restaurants, Cobalt is the fancier, serving small plates of charred octopus and clams, and entrees such as crispy-skin golden tilefish with herb spaetzle and truffle puree. With its casual fare and open-air seating, Heaton’s Bar and Grill is a good spot for a late lunch.
In the Area
It would be easy just to stick around the hotel for your entire stay, but it’s nice to know that you’re just a short stroll from other dining and shopping options in one of Florida’s most appealing east coast towns. Tiffany lamps are paired with fishing buoys for a rustic, Old Florida look at the waterfront Ocean Grill. Afterwards, grab a fruity cocktail at the sand-floored Capt. Hiram’s SandBar, in nearby Sebastian. American artisans get the spotlight at the eclectic Laughing Dog Gallery, where you can shop for everything from chandeliers and paintings to handmade hourglasses. Spot alligators, manatees and ospreys during a 2.5-hour paddling tour along the Indian River Lagoon with Kayaks, Etc.. Early 20th-century American works, many with nautical or marine themes, are featured at the Vero Beach Museum of Art. In June and July rangers lead visitors on guided walks at Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge to witness sea turtles coming ashore to lay eggs.
How to Get There
We just returned from the Vero Beach Hotel after spending 3 nights there. We have been coming to this hotel since 2009 and we love this place. We always enjoy the family atmosphere that this hotel has. The entire staff beginning with General Manager, desk personnel, cleaning staff, beach butlers and waiters are great! The food here is also very tasty. We would recommend the Vero Beach Hotel to all of our friends and family. We will be back soon.
What an amazing hotel. Right on the beach. Was greeted with a friendly staff. They were able to upgraded me to an oceanfront suite. The room was so nice. Clean, spacious and great view. A welcome gift awaited me. While there, I experienced nothing but outstanding service. They checked on me a couple times to ensure I had everything I needed. The entire staff is top notch. I highly recommend this hotel, be it pleasure or business travel. If my travels take me back to Vero Beach, Kimpton is my first choice! Had an outstanding stay. Thank you to the staff and management. Well done.
I have stayed at the Vero Beach & Spa before, but this trip was amazing. The weather was terrific, the staff helpful and friendly, and our room was off the charts. We were able to upgrade to a 2 BR - 2 BATH suite with not one but two balconies and a full kitchen/dining/living room space.
There is pretty much only valet parking. The first car comes with the pricey resort fee (~$30). The second is $20 per night. There is free on-street parking outside the hotel from 6 PM to 8 AM.
The food is decent, although on this trip we did not use the dining. Did not use the spa so no comment.
I did not have any issues, but I did hear a few people complaining about the "no see ums" which are a tiny flying insect that bite the heck out of your legs. They are out only at night. So beware if you have a lot of leg showing.
We thoroughly loved this property > from friendly guest check in, to our room, dining & the beach. Unfortunately we did not experience the Spa. Next time for sure! A day prior to arrival, I rec'd a welcome text. Very nice decor throughout. Valet parking.
Been here quite of few times since they have opened. The staff and property are awesome. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Arriving on my birthday, I was left a handwritten greeting along with desserts in my room that evening, complements of the hotel. We were upgraded to what I believe was the best room on the property. In all it was the a great get away, and perfect celebration with my husband. My favorite place in Vero Beach!
