Best moderate for adults only trip

We are considering a moderate resort for an adults only trip in the spring. We were considering a deluxe (with a discount code), but we're thinking it may be better to save money on the hotel since it'll be such a short trip (4 days) and we will spend most of each day in the parks.

That said, we are considering Caribbean Beach & Coronado Springs. We had considered POR as well, but I'm not sure how I feel about the theming. Looking for tips on which moderate is the most "luxurious." Obviously I don't expect them to be as nice as the deluxes, but since it's an adults only trip we are looking for nicer rooms as opposed to a specific type of theming.

Coronado. Definitely for an adults only trip. But you should visit POR for the Piano Bob show.

I like CBR, but would pick Coronado.

Coronado ... my wife and I honeymooned there ... very resort like. Much like a beach resort, hammocks by white sand beaches several quiet pools and one big one ... just perfect.

I vote for Coronado. The room decor and bed linens are more sophisticated and very different from the other moderates. It's a beautiful resort and the walk around the lake is magical. I recommend dinner at the Maya Grill. Dinner is great dinner and the restaurante is somewhat intimate.

You might want to consider the Swan and Dolphin. They are not Disney owned hotels but sometimes you can score rates similar to those of Disney's moderate resorts. While not Disney themed, they are (imo) more luxurious and comfortable than the moderate resorts. The beach around them is very pretty and there is a large beautiful themed pool. In addition (and perhaps most importantly), they are within walking distance to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. That being said, if you go with a Disney moderate - I would lean to CSR as well. It feels the most resort like of the moderates to me.

Coronado Springs would definitely be your best bet for an adults-only trip
