Ooo, that is a great spot. Tell us how you like it. Is your room one of the mildly re-habbed rooms ?
When we visited CBR we fell in love with Jamaica village in particular. Must have been the colors, LOL ! Its seems very close to everything, and Jamaica pool/beach area seems great.
We reserved a waterfront room for october and requested Jamaica. Hopefully we will get 44 or 45 looking out over the pool / lake .
Have a good time !

Anywhere within your booking category. There is no default section they put people, it's just whatever is available for your dates, in your booking category.

Hello all-
Just got back from CBR- 8/5 - 8/14. Had some issues at the start but as is the Disney way, they took care of it. My family and I have stayed at CBR a total of 12 times. I feel that the resort is in need of some "refreshing." The grounds are beautiful and lush but the rooms to me at least, need some attention. We've never really complained about this resort except for our last two stays - and we don't plan on staying anywhere else. However, I wanted to mention this to see if this has been experienced or if other CBR enthusiasts feel the same way.

Here's what we found in our room at check in:
- A/C not working
- Two bulbs over our vanity not working
- Shower valve handle fell off
- Female hair (handful) in tub
- Mildew on tub surround
- Clock not working
- Wet rug

Now, last time we were there in 2011, we had a broken fridge, moldy smell in the room and a dirty toilet. We had housekeeping come and clean the room and the A/C fixed but am I wrong in telling them that the housekeepers should be more vigilant? I was a little perturbed because we spent 2 hours taking care of these issues. They finally changed our rooms but we were a bit surprised that these things happen when someone must have noticed these issues prior to them giving us the room. At $170.00 a night, I shouldn't be spending 2 hours of my precious Disney time rectifying housekeeping and maintenance issues.
Disney did comp me for one night and apologized extensively. As I told the supervisor, I love the resort and don't want to read/hear negative reviews about it. These issues should not happen.

By the way, our room had a fridge....and it worked!!!

......and for those who need pictures, just pm me and I can get you pictures of the resort. I've taken tons over the years and I walked the resort this last trip and took pictures of the grounds and buildings, etc.

Oh so sorry! Our air was actually too cold and had to turn it down. My first ever too cold disney room.

I just posted some pics but didn't get any night shots. So please get some if possible.

Thanks in advance!

I think refurb next year would fix a lot of your complaints and your next trip more magical

we have been lucky, all of our past stays have been great with no issues at all. Glad to hear they responded to your concerns, lets hope this kind of situation happens rarely, as I know things can t always be perfect and at times be neglected. Overall I do think most of the staff at cbr are great and go out of their way to please!

Anyone know what time the Old Port Royale food court is open until at night ? We are coming in pretty late in October, around 11-11:30 PM and will likely be a little hungry whn we finally get to CBR. Will the food court be an option for us, or should we plan on something else.

Thanks,
Syndrome

If I remember correctly it was open until Midnight. Hopefully someone else that has been recently can confirm or correct me.

Thats what I thought. We visited a few weeks ago to check it all out before we booked a BB offer for October. I didnt rememember the hours. I was pretty sure that midnight, like I was hoping, was a little optimistic !
O.k. I guess we will have to get something to eat at the airport .

Thanks for the confirmation ,
