First time Kimpton guests! We spent three nights at this wonderful resort while visiting our grandmother who resides in Vero Beach. As last minute travelers, we booked the last room on the beach; and what a treat it was. As a savy, discriminatory, picky family of five; we found a gem! We recenly traveled to Aruba, and a Ritz Carlton in Florida, but would choose to come back here first! First rate check in with Kim and Charmaine. We were weary from travel, and were greeted with wine, smiles, and friendliness. The grounds are beautiful, quaint, and clean. The beach is expansive, and clean. The Cobalt feels and serves like a five star restaurant we recently patronized in Deer Valley! We missed taking advantage of the "happy hours" for adults and children. The resort was 100% occupied, but it was never crowded at the beach, pool, or in the hot tub. Our only "gripe"-a $15 charge/chair for "renting" chairs on the beach. A family of 5 with teens will choose to use towels! We will come back when we visit grandma again. And, we will look at other Kimptons for future travel.
