sorry if this was asked before but are the coffee makers in GF single serve and if so do they use that horrible coffee for that as well? Are there any single serve we can buy on our own and bring that will work with their machine?

I wonder in what manner the lights were forgotten. Hard to imagine an architect or pool designer would forget them. I wonder if someone forgot to place an order??? Or if the CM had accurate info in the first place?

Anyway, hope it is ready for those of you going in the Spring.

What the cast member told me was they installed the lights but not the correct amount of them so they had to redo it maybe it was a permit approval thing I'm not sure !!!!

hi i am thinking staying gf cl sugarloaf. I see the two view options are marina or courtyard pool. How bad is the construction of the courtyard pool? I know i can request a view of the marina instead, but of course they cannot guarantee. Just want to be prepared and not disappointed. My husband is a huge YC CL fan so having him switch and then not being happy I will never hear the end of it

We have stayed at sugar loaf and main building since the court yard pool construction has began. It's really not that big of a deal. I actually thought it was cool, because I got to spy into the process.

The marina view is nice though, allows us to watch our kids walk back and forth to Gasps.

Two days until my DD14 and I hit the Grand for our annual daddy-daughter weekend - a commando raid on all four parks at a less busy time of the year to ride EVERYTHING. Staying SL and was initially worried about the pool construction view but for all the time we will be in the room (like just to sleep) who cares? It's the GF! I'll report back here after our return.

Has anyone upgrade on site from a standard garden view room to outer building club level? What was the cost difference?

I booked with the 35% discount in November for March 1st-7th. Right now when I ask to be upgraded it costs north of 2000. I find that a bit steep and I'm hoping that when we arrive I will have a chance to upgrade at a lower cost. Thoughts?

Chips?

I searched this thread but didn't see this anywhere......

We're headed down in three weeks for our first stay at the GF and DS asked me this question......

Do they have the "housemade" potato chips (like the ones they have at the YC and BC CL lounges) in the Sugar Loaf CL Lounge? We love those and they can be addictive!

Thanks.

They have home made chips at Gaspirillas. Club level has regular chips and tortillas chips at different times.

If memory serves me correct.

Thanks. We were hoping the GF would have them too. The last time we stayed at the YC, they were serving them with sandwiches at the BC Marketplace, as well as in the CL lounge. Guess we'll either have to go to Gaspirillas or take a trip to the BC if we want any.
