Thanks for posting the pics! Looks very nice. When we stayed, paint had peeled in bathroom, and on door, very bad patch work! Looks nice & fresh now. More pics please Would like one from door looking longways into the room to get a better look of room, with dresser, day bed, chairs, etc!!

Did they replace main room doors? Anything done in halls?

The rooms have the RFID entry now. This works very well (so far). At the check in desks they now have RFID readers, so instead of asking for your room number, they ask to scan your key card.

Today Engineering came and installed a bar code on the inside door jamb - it is so they can scan to make sure the luggage goes to the right room.

According to the CM's. the rooms are lighter on purpose. We have stayed here many times through different iterations, and the room feels bigger.

The bathroom really is larger, and those are towel bars in front of the sinks. Look for the hairdryer in the closet. Still no separate area to get ready if someone is in the bathroom.

I will need to clean up a little and then I can get more pics of the room.

I was having trouble viewing the pics when using Internet Explorer. I switched over to Google Chrome and had no problem. Hope this helps.

It looks great! We will be there in June and I can't wait.

Any chance you can snap a picture of the new day bed?

Thanks for posting!

I am looking forward to more pictures of the room! Not sure I am a fan of the brown in the bathroom, but when viewed in the context of the entire space, I think it works. There needed to be something to offset all the white/beige.

I really didn't notice the difference in the closet doors as some mentioned. Were the panels more green before? It appears to me, if anything, it allows more light from the closet area into the mini hallway.

Thanks for sharing!

I loved the green tile too! I think the rooms needed updating, but not a fan of the more modern, non-themed, black/white look. Hoping to see additional pictures that change my mind - I really want to like the new rooms.

Thanks so much for the pics. We are booked there in October, and we are super excited! I LOVE the neck roll pillows, wonder if those can be purchased? And I love the streamlined uncluttered look in the baths. Just makes me want time to fly till October!

Thanks for the pics. I'm glad the rooms were updated because they needed something, but IMO, the changes are a little too drastic and don't really keep with a tropical theme. As nice as the beds look with the duvets, I like the old bathrooms better. I liked the green tile and green counter tops......made it more "tropical" to me than the brighter, modern look it has now. I think the brighter black and white colors make it look more like the CR (modern) than a tropical paradise.

Yes, exactly! It seems like the last few resort renovations have all white bedding - what's up with that?? Maybe they got a discount on white duvets??

And the bathroom is so blah! I like the pics of the AoA bathrooms so much better than these from the Poly

I'm almost afraid to look at the pics of the lounge - I'm afraid they painted all the exposed wood....
