Well, unless they put them in since the 17th, that is incorrect. They have pod style brewers.

So, trying to decide on whether to book a cabana. I think I would do just a regular one and I think I'd do it on the day we transfer from POR to POLY. We are CL so we'd have the lounge to hang in if our room is not ready, but the cabana might be a nice way to start at the Poly...is the cabana still $100?? Experiences?

I concur. They have pods in the room. They only have Kuerigs in the Tonga suites. I just returned a week ago.

I agree. You could do the 10-2 time frame and chill out in the cabana. Then when you are done there is a strong possibility that the room will be ready.

I think it is $150?? Someone else may be able to confirm that. They give a beautiful tray of fruit and having the relaxing chairs and TV is nice. Pulse there is a Cabana attendant to fetch some cocktails or even food if you chose but the extra food and cocktails is extra.

I was fortunate to be a guest of Maiapapaya and family last year and it was fabulous. If my recent trip was not so short I probably would have considered it being it was a bit crowded some days but with just the three of us it did not seem worth the money and time.

Nice. I think I might try to get that. Looks like you have stayed CL many times.... Can I book this through IPO and is it paid for ahead of time?

The cabana is like $117 after tax.

Yes, you can have the IPO book it. They will just use a credit card guarantee.

Happy planning!

I believe on my receipt from last September it was the same. (yes I'm weird and kept my receipt as a memento ) We really love the cabanas. We rented one twice on our last trip, and ended up extending both to full day rentals. If you get Brandon as an attendant you will have an AWESOME time. He is wonderful. Jennifer was good, but we had a bad experience with her. When we extended our cabana rental she told us we only had until 5, and she was shady about the whole thing. I should have reported it.

No. Keurig uses a K cup. These are little pods.
