I just started a new thread on this exact topic yesterday! I have read so man awful reviews, but we are staying here in Sept..I feel so much better about it now, whew!! We are not that picky, the size of the resort sounds great to me, it's the double beds that bum me out some, but at the end of the day, I think we will survive, LOL....I'm excited about the pool and we are a family of 4, two teens-we all LOVE anything with a Caribbean theme!!! I'm getting excited now

I don't remember whether or not the movie was visible from the pool. It was not visible from the hot tub. If you zoom in on Google Maps satellite you will see the pool, the Banana Cabana Pool Bar and the large concrete area next to the bar. If I remember the movies were located here and the pool bar is between the movie and the pool. However, there may be areas in the pool where the movie is visible, I'm just not sure.

Anyone else know?

I lOVE CBR. We stay there every time we come to WDW. I have never understood why so many people complain about it. The food court has a great variety. The gift shop is very nice. We usually pay for a preferred room to be close to the food court but if you request Jamaca which is the group of yellow buildings, there is a bridge that goes accross the lake. That really cuts down on the walking since you don't have to walk all the way around the resort. There is also an "internal" bus that just runs around the property. You can take that too if you want to save your walking for the parks.

The rooms are really nice and clean. I love the fact that there are double sinks which helps in getting ready in the morning. We usually find a towel animal in the room at some point during our stay. The staff has always been great and the bus service has also been great. We have never waited more then 10 minutes for a bus.

I think you will enjoy this resort. Have fun and don't worry about any bad reviews.

I was in Jamaica building which didn't seem like a far walk to old port royal. Most of the time Jamaica was the first bus stop too! I loved CBR it was so pretty! I had a fabulous trip there last August!

If you are talking preferred, then Martinique 26, 25 and 24 and all of Trinidad North buildings. All rooms in Trinidad South are pirate rooms. All others are standard rooms. Here's a map that will help you out.

There are no preferred Pirate rooms. They had to do something extra in Trinidad South so people wouldn't mind being in the farthest village from OPR.

Oh gotcha. Our last trip I was chatting with the CBR General Manager about the Pirate Rooms. Before they redid them with the Pirate theme, she said Trinidad South would normally run at 15-20% capacity. Since the switch, they normally run at 60-70%.

Well I guess that was smart on their part then, I just know we were irritated when we realized how far back we were & we paid so much extra...
