Visit Florida: Hidden Jewel - Gloria Estefan's luxury boutique hotel in Vero Beach


If you're swimming at the four-diamond-rated Costa d'Este Beach Resort & Spa - owned by singer Gloria Estefan in Vero Beach, Fla. - you'll be offered the use of full-sized Sun Bum sunscreen products. But don't expect to be told to take the products home with you; the hotel sells the products in its spa.

While this may be the first time you've heard of the resort,I'm certain you'll be familiar with its famous owners. Vero Beach has long been known for attracting creative types and artists, so it's no wonder superstar recording artist Gloria Estefan chose this seaside village to develop her $50 million luxury boutique resort. The international singer and her husband, Grammy Award-winning producer Emilio Estefan, opened Costa d'Este in 2008 and transformed it into a world-class hotel, worthy of its AAA Four-Diamond distinction.

"We chose to develop a resort here because we wanted to invest in Vero Beach and think it's a quiet beach community and is the perfect distance for a weekend getaway from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach and Orlando," the singer, who owns a home in Vero Beach, told

The Estefans discovered Vero Beach about 11 years ago and immediately fell in love with the community and the people. "Once we began spending time in our home we came to appreciate the many natural attractions in the area," Estefan said to

Almost 150 miles south in Miami Beach, the couple owns an authentic Cuban restaurant, Larios on the Beach, as well as the sophisticated and art deco-themed Cardozo Hotel on Ocean Drive. Each of their properties, including Costa d'Este, exudes the famous duo's Latin flair and lavish taste.

"The Costa d'Este is one of my favorite places to visit," said Lou Guida, former owner of the Philadelphia Eagles and retired Senior Vice President of Merrill Lynch. Guida travels with his family to the resort several times a year.
