Vero Beach recos?

I’m thinking about adding onto a WDW trip to go to Vero Beach. For those that have been there before, how was your experience? Did you rent points?

We’re DVC & used points for a 4 days during Spring Break 2018 after visiting Universal.
Rented a car and stopped at Kennedy Space Center on our way to Vero.
Resort is nice with family activities - pool, mini golf, beach rentals. Restaurant was good but typical Disney $
Not much to do near resort and Vero Beach town is a bit of a drive.
We ate at Waldos which is a beachside bar/outdoor restaurant at a quirky historic hotel. Then, we grabbed orange Soft serve ice cream at Countryside Citrus which was the closest we got to Dole Whip on this trip.
Another evening we went to Sebastian and ate at Squid Lips on the water.

We’re looking for a nice resort to just chill and lay on the beach. Would this be a good choice? Potentially after a visit to WDW.
