Costa D'Este does a great job of welcoming you to the hotel. They made the exit from my car to the entrance to my hotel room seamless. The bellhop took care of everything as we checked in. They let us check in early, which was a major plus. My first impression of the hotel is that it's not as large as it looks. This was a positive, as I never felt any specific area was crowded in the hotel. The room was a perfect size for a couple with a 2 year old. The king bed was comfortable to sleep and relax in. The view of the pool and beach area was pristine.
Once we settled into the room, we hit the pool area. The pool was clean and warm. There are not many chairs by the pool area, so make sure to claim one early. After a refreshing dip, we hit the bar for our complimentary mojitos. The mojitos are refreshing, but the mint flavor was missing. I found that their other specialty drinks were much more satisfying.
We went out to dinner at a nearby restaurant and noticed that this is a quaint little town. They had a small concert in the town square, with many tourists and locals relaxing and enjoying the end of their day. Unfortunately, the concert and all the festivities were over by around 10pm. If you're used to a late-night scene, you may find Vero beach to be lackluster. However, going to sleep early may prove difficult if you're a light sleeper, as you could lightly hear music from the pool area from your room.
Our departure from the hotel was slower than expected, as we tried to leave at the last minute. It seemed everyone else at the hotel had the same idea. The staff handled it with grace and apologized for the wait, but it was easy to see that they were slammed.
