I paid for a water view room. Does anyone know if that is the same price as preferred or King? I was wondering what to request. I may not request and take my chances. We have never been to CBR.

Thanks!

28 days!

Hi
I am planning our first stay at CBR! I have a question about the bus stops... which way around do the buses pick up? I am going to assume that the bus stop at Barbados is first.
TIA

If the buses enter the resort via the side entrance, the first stop will be Jamaica, then on to Aruba, Barbados, Martinique, Old Port Royale, Trinidad North and Trinidad South will be last.

If they enter from the front entrance, the first stop will be Martinique, then on to Old Port Royale, Trinidad North, Trinidad South, Jamaica, Aruba and Barbados will be last.

Thank You! I thought the bus route might help to decide which building(s) to request, but I guess you never know which way it will go. Thanks again!

You're welcome! We have stayed in Jamaica (x3), Aruba, Barbados and Martinique (x3) and have enjoyed each of our locations.

DD wanted AoA originally, but I'm saving $500 to come over to CBR ! Her only request in a resort "It has to have a theme!"

Anyone have luck with using a grocery delivery service to CBR? We had it for Poly last year and found it be a good deal for our family! (saved on breakfast and snacks!)

Also, for a first-timer to CBR and for a daughter who loves the pool, which bldg do you recommend to be closest to the the pool?

Has anyone ever had a "bad view" from their standard room view?

We've used Garden Grocer several times and each time the service has been excellent. They left our order with Bell Services and the cold items were kept refrigerated for us. Bell Services brought the items to our room once we were in the room.

I think that our favorite standard location was in Jamaica. We've been in Jamaica three times and, each time, the walk to the main pool was about 5 minutes at a leisurely pace.

I have a lot of pictures posted over on the CBR picture thread including our "standard view" room views. The views weren't bad at all!

Thank you so much!

I'm worried that we'll be overwhelmed with the size of this resort!

The longest walk that we had was from our building in one of the furthest Barbados buildings and it was 7 1/2 minutes and that was walking behind a couple with a double stroller who were walking slowly. My mother, who is 78, has stayed at the CBR twice (when she was 76 and 77) and had no problems with any of the walks around the resort so I'm sure you'll be fine with the size.

Another thing to keep in mind when wondering how long a walk is, is to consider how scenic and really lovely it can be. We have stayed in a pirate room(so, one of the furthest buildings from the food court) and walked to the pool or to get food each day. I can honestly say, it was SOOOOO NICE! We had a rental car, so we could have driven, but it is way to beautiful of a walk! It's next to the sand/water, gorgeous tropical plants and flowers, sparkling quiet pools and it just winds around to where you need to get to. So nice! I think I remember Caribbean music near the outdoor eating area somewhere not far from the pool and pool bar. So fun! You just font get a walk like that at home everyday! It's truly something to be enjoyed!

Very well said and couldn't agree more!
