Ultrafeast: Beach Club CL Trip March 2010 - New 7/6

-

Let me start by saying we absolutely loved staying club level! Loved the CMs available to help us during our stay and the food and drinks offered. The breakfasts were perfect for us, and those offerings combined with the various snacks available throughout the day allowed us to avoid counter service meals almost entirely! Those of you who are familiar with our other TRs know how much we hate CS! I also think the food offered in the lounge was a great value for us – most days we only paid for one TS meal, which was cheaper than paying for the DDP would have been. It was also much more convenient for us in terms of Laura’s food allergies (to peanuts, tree nuts, and soy – plus she is vegan), which we’ve had trouble accommodating when using CS and snack credits.

We loved CL so much that we’ve switched our September 2010 trip over to CL (at the Beach Club again, because it was also the best)! This was thanks to a nice bounceback offer that was emailed to me the day before our March trip ended. I had been hoping for a code that would trump the former free dining bounceback we had booked with last September, and my wishes were realized – hooray!

Firstly, here are pictures I took throughout our stay of the CL lounge and of various food offerings. I’ll re-post the food postings as appropriate as the story of this TR unfolds.


Two desks for CMs outside of the lounge - the door to the lounge is in the left corner of the picture.


Immediately in front of you when you enter the lounge.


Door to the lounge/ TV area.


Food area - to your right after you enter the lounge.


Kids' area, with a couple of adult tables in the foreground. If you're looking at the lounge from the entrance, this area is right behind the food area.

Kids' counter (right behind food area) - it was so crowded one morning that these were the only seats we could get for breakfast!

Breakfast:






Afternoon snacks:




Evening appetizers:

Dessert:
















Available all times the lounge was open:






Secondly, we were given an absolutely amazing upgrade to a lagoon view (we had booked a standard garden view), which was the best! Our room had a full balcony and overlooked Stormalong Bay and Crescent Lake – sitting out on that balcony was heavenly. We had two queen beds in our room, and I loved the sink area – there were shelves beneath the two sinks where I was able to store all of my various toiletries and products (which as Laura can attest, normally clog up the entire surface area of the sink space). The room was definitely smaller than our rooms at the GF and Poly (which was absolutely huge), but we didn’t have any space constraint issues.

Here are several pics of our room and the lovely view.





























That will do it for our intro - we'll be back more with some real story!

Absolutely gorgeous view! Beautiful pictures! CL sounds exciting. I like the idea of having your breakfasts and snackies paid for.

I'm excited for the rest!

YAY for another TR! I'm so excited to see and read about all your wackiness. I'm curious to see how you and your sis relate to your bro while there.

I do admit, however, that I miss Liz!

CL was grand, but I think anywhere in the BC/ YC area is awesome!
