From what I've seen here on the boards, it seems like, more than any other resort, people who have never stayed there are always just looking for a reason to hate CSR.
First, last and only trip to the World: Caribbean Beach 1996
Planning my triumphant return for 2015!
Resort wish list: CSR, WL, Yacht Club

i have stayed there... I have it at least three chances. Still my next to last choice (I forgot that last place will be held in all eternity by Grand Floridian, biggest rip off for a hotel ever!)

I agree. I had a prejudice against it for the longest time for no real reason... then last year I let my DH pick the resort and that's what he picked (usually I'm the Disney planner) and I was like really?? that one?? but when we got there we LOVED IT! It was really great, not perfect of course, but we'd definitely stay there again!

You know, the thing is though, you could post this thread about ANY Disney resort. "Does anyone not like _________ resort" and you would get just as many people disliking whichever resort you use to fill in the blank.

We stayed at CSR last year and won't stay again. It's just not the resort for us.

What we didn't like:

Location of room (obviously this can be avoided by requesting a closer room) Darn what a hike to get to dining, etc after a long day at the parks.

Atmosphere of the main building (forget what it's called). Seemed tired. I understand it's an understated theme but it was something more than that. Not at all impressive.

Pepper Market - We all HATED it!!! (strong words I know but it was a lousy way to end our Disney vacation and we regretted going there)

Had a really bad experience with baggage handlers getting our luggage delivered from WL to our room at CSR...outright lied to me twice. I never went off on someone the way I did that guy (didn't feel bad either...ok maybe a little but don't lie to a guest...twice!)

What we liked:
The rooms were nice. Liked the sliding door between the room and sink / bathroom area. I wish they would do something similiar at the deluxe resorts!

Pool area was really cool!

As others have said, there are fans and haters of every resort...CSR just wasn't for us (although I'm glad we did try it so I know )
