(DGIwire) – This review almost didn’t get posted because sometimes in life, it’s natural to just want to keep a great hideaway a secret. However, since our ReviewLoft policy is to share reviews on all things remarkable and that we have come to love…our All Star Review Team would be remiss if we didn’t tell you about a most fabulous resort that we recently had the pleasure of visiting.

Recently not one but three ReviewLoft members found themselves at Costa d’Este Beach Resort & Spa. If you’re not familiar with the name, you might be intrigued to read more simply because Costa d’Este is one of the top ten celebrity-owned hotels in the world…and a stay does not cost anywhere what you might imagine compared to other impossibly exclusive and expensive beachfront destinations.

The hotel is owned by musical power couple Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Just in case you’re unfamiliar with the name, together, the Estefans have won 26 Grammy Awards. Gloria was one of the first mainstream Hispanic artists to cross over between English and Spanish music, while today being well-established as one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 100 million records worldwide. (Yes, there was Hispanic music pre-Pitbull.)

A world class hotel, Costa d’Este is set on miles of pristine golden shoreline sand in Vero Beach, Florida, also known as the “Hamptons of Miami.” The beachfront is breathtaking and sure to appeal to even the most ardent beach traveler. Flawless sand, waves gentle and spectacular sunrises and sunsets set the mood. For those who prefer poolside relaxation, that’s available, too, as is poolside dining and cocktails at the outdoor bar.

The location is ideal as it offers convenience and variety for those seeking ease and comfort. Incidentally, for those coming from the Northeast, there’s now air transportation between Newark and Vero Beach—which may make accommodation availability at this spot a bit more challenging this winter. Costa d’este is situated on a lovely stretch of the Treasure Coast convenient for those who like shopping at fine clothing and jewelry retail establishments or simply desire accessibility to a beautiful stretch of town when you want to go enjoy a bit of exercise and action. There are a variety of vendors at the year round outdoor market down the street for those seeking a bit of artistic culture and less than a mile down the street from the front entrance, there is a beachfront playground for those traveling with young children.

The atmosphere of Costa d’Este Beach Resort reflects the Estefan’s artistic side, although music is almost surprisingly (yet perfectly) soft and understated. Rooms are defined by both class and tasteful elegance. The bed linens and pillows divinely both crisp and cozy. Beachfront and poolside rooms and suite options are offered.

Hands-on, delightfully pleasant and responsive, manager Ed Riley greets and interacts with guests, making everyone feel like they’re getting the celebrity treatment. The attentive staff is pleasant and helpful. Everyone does a fine job at keeping the cosseted feeling going as poolside loungers are offered treats throughout the day, like delectable frozen grapes and sunglass cleanings. All staff is on standby ready to pamper and serve each guest.

The Spa is a most deserving recipient of a 2015 World Luxury Spa Award. Spa-goers are invited to relish and relax, as they get pampered and rejuvenated while enjoying the creative variety of signature massage, facials or mani/pedi options.

A haven from the ordinary, the twin modern Miami-inspired five story towers offer sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from most rooms. Unpretentious yet luxurious, both sophisticated and laid back beach lovers will find comfortable respite at this fine destination resort. Isn’t it time you enjoyed your piece of the indulgent celebrity life?
