Costa d’Este is one of those resorts, even though it’s in our own backyard, makes you feel as if you have been transported to a tropical vacation destination far from Vero. As you walk up to the resort, the unique waterfall architecture unmistakably draws your eye. The grounds are very well maintained and quite tropical with lots of large palm trees all around. As you pass through the front door, you step into a modern chic sitting area in the lobby highlighted with blue accent lighting. The restaurant is just a few steps to the right and through a stone arch with only their logo to identify what it is. As you enter the dining room, you will notice a large table surrounded by a chainmail wall. This is their VIP table that can be used for special occasions & events. With the push for more outside dining options during the pandemic, they have made accommodations to add additional seating on the patio around the pool. You can now choose to sit at a few high tops just outside of the restaurant, or you can now sit in the ocean front cabana bar area and order from the full restaurant menu.
Now let’s dive right in and see what this place has to offer and what I had to eat and drink!
