I'm almost afraid to look at the pics of the lounge - I'm afraid they painted all the exposed wood....
Saw the pics on tikiman pages Facebook , and GORGEOUS

Also after looking at pics of room on a larger screen I think the contrasting dark and light in the rooms will be pretty in person

I loved the kitschy quality of the original design. Made me feel like I was smack dab in the middle of a Brady Bunch episode. I never had a problem with the "darkness" of the resort,just the fact that it was run down:/

Thank you so much for posting these! We have been trying to decide on resorts for our October/November trip, and I've been waiting to see refurb photos.

I am so surprised with myself.... I always like new and despise those cheesy comforters. In fact, staying at the CR this summer and so looking forward to the bedding. But.....I miss the old Poly! These rooms seem so bland in comparison.

But thanks for sharing....and no doubt, the resort will still be a wonderful place to stay!!

I kind of feel the same way -- hated the bedspreads in the old rooms, but the new room looks nice but not too "Poly-ish" now that I see more photos...

Guest complaints about the comforters being gross due to not washing them after each guest. From this point on, all rooms rehabbed will be like this with just the bed scarf being different.

Oh, very interesting! We always removed the comforters too, so I guess it doesn't make much sense to have them. Just gave a pretty look to the room when you first walk in...

I agree, never understood the phobia about them and these rooms all look so generic now.

Okay, just checked out the photos on Tikiman's facebook page and I feel much better. The wide view of the room looks okay - I like the color scheme (don't love it, but it's okay); still don't like the look of the bathroom - just too modern for me. But the lounge looks great! From what I could tell, they didn't change that to a modern look at all
