Yes, I think this happens at all the rooms
2. Do they only provide new shampoo/conditioner every other day instead of everyday? That was our experience despite tipping everyday.

Yes, but you can always request more. Tipping has nothing to do with receiving more toiletries.
We enjoyed our stay, but we did have a few issues. Our room wasn't ready until well after 4pm even though we did online check-in to say that we'd arrive by 12:30pm. I know there's no guarantee of an early check-in, but I never thought we'd have to wait past the standard check-in time. We requested a room on a higher floor, but got ground floor. The first room we received smelled like cigarette smoke, so we had to request another room. There was a huge event set up on the beach in front of our building with lots of seating set up, buffet tables and music which was loud and made walking difficult along the pathway. Still, the resort is beautiful and we enjoyed the pools, nightly bonfire & movies. We'd like to stay there again in the future.
Check in begins at 3:00, but that doesn't always mean your room will be available at that time. As far as requests go, they are just requests and not guaranteed. I totally agree with you regarding the room smelling like smoke, I would have needed to be moved immediately.

How late is the pool bar open in September?

I have been conflicted in narrowing down where to stay. In the running are POR AB preferred, POR Royal and CSR. We are a family of 5 traveling with my parents. Kids will be 5, 7 and 9 (one will stay in my parents room). One thing we enjoy is a nightcap after a day in the parks. CSR cabanas was my 1st choice of where to stay until I read that the pool bar closes at 6pm. Really? Why so early? And, I have since had people say it is opened later. We are going September 12-22, in case that makes a difference.
So...I need help from the CSR frequent travelers! How late IS the pool bar open in Sept?? I am hoping at least 8 or 9pm.
Thanks!

According to buzz's website, the Siestas Catina (pool bar) is open until 6pm each day. The Laguna Bar (lakeside bar) is open until 10pm unless it is raining. And Rix Lounge is open until midnight or 1am depending upon the day of the week.

And if I were there and he is wearing a Steelers Cal I'd be the one in a Browns cap giving him a dirty look. LOL

I guess I will have to be the one breaking you two up! Even though I'm from Pittsburgh I don't watch any of the sports so I'm neutral.

I'm ok with the Bills. It's just the Steelers and Ravens I don't care for.

Hey, another Pittsburgher here - didn't realize there were so many of us on this thread . I feel the same way - don't care too much about sports, although I do love to watch baseball in the spring

What part of town is everyone from? We're in the south hills...

I'm not from Pittsburgh, but my wife is from Vangergrift, and much of her family is still there as well as the Apollo & New Kensington area. And yes my wife and I are a house divided when the Steelers play the Browns. LOL
