We have stayed at all the moderates. They all have their pros and cons. For us, our perception of a resort seems to be colored by the location of the first rooms we have there. At CSR, our first room was in a wonderful location and had a fantastic view of a beautiful fountain and a quiet pool. However, I'm sure we'd have felt quite differently if we'd been far away from everything and had looked out on a parking lot.

Thanks so much for the pictures! I sure wish that I were staying in a pirate room and walking around the resort right now. Instead, I'm sitting behind a desk. UGH!

Sparkly: I believe that the fridge would be in the cabinet where the coffee maker is sitting. I agree that it's going to cut down on actual drawer space. I wonder if there will be enough room to keep the murphy bed down and use it as a sort of shelf. We still don't know if these are pictures of what the rooms will actually look like so it's all just speculation.

I think the time it takes to drive around the resort picking people up is longer at CBR. Having to start and stop all of those extra times. I didn't figure it would be that much different than say POR or CSR, but the added time was obvious.

Kind of like road traffic. The more stops and starts that traffic makes the longer it takes to get anywhere.

We are in Trinidad South. We have never stopped more than once on our way to DTD or MK. On the way back, we've stopped 2-3 times. It doesn't seem as if the buses here all follow the same route around the resort as they do at POR. During our last stay at POR, we were at the 1st stop; so we always had to make the entire loop around the resort before setting off. However, being the first stop off on the return trip was pretty nice. Admittedly, we have not used the CBR buses much this trip. We prefer to drive most of the time.

I have to add that the CBR pirate rooms have had the most storage we've seen in a while: 4 deep drawers in the dresser, deep drawer in the bench/trunk, storage under the nightstand, shelf under the double sink, and deep shelf above the bench/trunk. Far, far better than a standard room at AKL or a room at a value. Just wish there was storage under the beds for suitcases. We returned our empty cases to the car, so we wouldn't have to pile-up the closet area.




(Sorry, dd took these.)
