We were sitting around discussing dinner reservations and saw a review of Shutters on here and it was bad. They said you would be better off going to the better places and eating out of their dumpster. They said the service was worse. Can anyone please comment? We have one day of the 8 that we will stay away from the parks and thought we would try Shutters but are we better off with the food court?
Gosh, talk about pressure. I sure hope that you enjoy your stay at the CBR.or my reputation is shot to heck.

I've read a couple of remi-recent Shutters reviews that said their meal was good. I've never eaten there simply because we like to see other resorts and eating in their restaurants is a way to do so.

Anyone able to advise.

We are staying in the Pirate Themed Rooms. Now I've heard that they are based in I think Trinidad South? From what I understand they are the furthest from the main OPR area.

Anyone able to advise what the distance is. I hear about jumping a bus is required, is anyone able to confirm a rough distance in terms of walking?


TIA

I believe some have said that it's about a 10-15 minute walk to OPR.

We were there the first week of this month and had the pirate themed room. We were in building 34 room 60 and I timed the walk from our room to OPR as 10 minutes at a brisk walk. It doesn't matter if you cross the road or go under the bridge.

FYI about the internal bus - it runs about every 15 minutes around the whole resort. So it might be quicker to just walk it. Trinidad South is 2 stops away from OPR.

OK, thanks guys.

Yep, just wondering, I ain't scared of a walk, but usually see the common thing in the brochures about 20 minutes from the beach and it's like really 5 or 10 minutes.

Cool.

Check out post #21 of this thread for a picture of the coffee makers. They only use 1-cup pods. You can't use loose coffee grounds and a filter. Here is a picture of what the pods are.

They are a filter/coffee ground combo. Hope this helps.

The longest walk that we've ever had from our room to Old Port Royale was 7 1/2 minutes. We were in one of the furthest Barbados rooms and were behind a couple with a large stroller so we were walking at a slow pace. Maybe the walk would be 20 minutes if it were round trip.

Is the food court at the same location as OPR? We are planning maybe a couple of breakfasts there.

Add CBR to code words for this thread

To Moderator,

Please add "CBR" to code words for this thread. When I search on CBR, I do not see this new thread.

Thanks

As Dansdad said, the food court is at Old Port Royale. Also at or near OPR are the main pool, kids' water play area, hair wrap station, pool bar, arcade, store and marina. There's also a concierge desk in the food court area and a DVC desk.
