Costa d’Este Beach Resort
This hip beachfront property is a window into 1950s Florida. Expect Midcentury Modern touches such as rounded walls and stylish wood paneling, plus built-in portholes that recall the Fontainebleau. It’s owned by Gloria and Emilio Estefan, and you’ll feel their presence the most at The Wave Kitchen & Bar, where the menu features home-style Cuban specialties from the Estefan Kitchen cookbook, including ropa vieja (shredded beef) and pollo asado (roasted chicken)—best enjoyed to the soundtrack of a live, 12-string Latin guitarist who plays every Friday and Saturday evening. Life here revolves around the beach (steps from your room) and pool, where you and yours can cuddle up on a rattan lounger built for two.
