Good Morning to all - can't remember, does the mini frig have a small freezer compartment at the top?

Thanks

No freezer compartment. I have turned the fridge on the coldest setting and put water bottles up against the very back of the fridge and the next morning they will be slushy. Not frozen though.

Thanks Mickeystoontown for the information. Slushy is better than nothing right?

One trick to getting your water bottles closer to freezing is to make sure you leave the cabinet door open that houses the fridge when you're in the parks during the day. This allows for better air flow and the fridge works much better this way. Our first morning as we were walking out the door to the bus, I opened the door all the way. When we got back that night, 3 or 4 of the bottles were 50% frozen. It's hard to leave it all the way open when in the room getting ready or sleeping (don't want to walk into the open door when walking to the bathroom in the dark), so I would prop it open with a wash cloth.

Dansdad - Appreciate your advice, makes sense...

The CBR buses do not share with other resorts. If the buses come in from the side entrance (buses only), the first stop will be Jamaica, followed by Aruba, Barbados, Martinique, Old Port Royale, Trinidad North and Trinidad South. If they use the front entrance, the first stop will be Martinique, followed by Old Port Royale, Trinidad North, Trinidad South, Jamaica, Aruba and Barbados.

Thank you for the info! Trying to make a decision on resorts. Currently booked at BLT, but may make switch to CBR (my kids choice) or WL (my choice).

You're welcome. I can certainly understand the hard resort decision making process. There are so many to choose from.

I am considering a solo trip in June( going with my sister in December) and want to try a new resort. This one looks promising. I don't care about walking so the big size won't bother me. I am somewhat concerned with the bus situation but even that can be dealt with.

Where are the king size bed rooms located?

Is there any rhyme or reason to which entrance they use? Maybe depending on where they are headed or coming from?

Is there a list or map of all the water view rooms at CBR? Also, how difficult will it be to get a request granted for a 1st floor water view room?

I am currently booked to stay off site next year, but am looking at changing to do our second week on site at CBR.
So have a few questions as we are torn between AoA, OKW (where we stayed last year) and CBR!

We won't be booking a pirate themed room, so how long roughly does it take to walk from the furthest room to OPR?
How long are the bus rides to the parks, and does it take a lot of extra time for the buses to make their way round the resort to drop of and pick up?
Anyone who has stayed at a value as well, do you really notice that the rooms at CBR are bigger?
And now the $64,000 question! Is the refurb happening, and what buildings? I really like the look of the standard rooms but wasn't as keen on the room in the pics posted a few pages back of a possible refurb room. Would all the rooms be done anyway by the time of our trip?
Our dates would be 2nd to 9th November 2014.

Thanks for any help

Claire
