What is your favorite area/building at CBR

Hi all, taking our first trip to CBR in April. We are staying in a standard room (not preferred). Just wanted to get some feedback on what your favorite area/building is and why? Thanks all! Much Dis-love to ya.

We like to stay either in Jamaica bldg 45 or Aruba bldg51. It is a short walk across the bridge to food court. And a beautiful walk. Very quiet area on that side of the lake

Jamaica 45 Not preferred but a short and pretty walk over to the food court. Also close to a bus stop. I have stayed in this area both times I've stayed at CBR and loved it.

Same here. We like Jamaica a little more as we really dig the yellow. It just screams Caribbean to us. But both those buildings are what we request as both are a very short stroll across the bridge to OPR and the main pool.

Sounds good! I would like to be relatively close to the main builidng, but transportation is also important. Is the resort any bigger than POR?

It is a little bit bigger than POR. We have found that the majority of standard rooms are right around a 5 minute walk to OPR. Every village has it's own bus stop so you are never far from one. The only rooms that are a hike are the Pirate Rooms in Trinidad South. But you wouldn't be in one of those unless you booked one.

We were in Aruba 51 last week. It was perfect. Quick walk across the bridge, and beautiful beach that the kids enjoyed every day.

We were in Jamaica next to quiet pool. It was a short walk to bridge going over to OPR, and just across parking lot to bus stop. Added bonus is that Jamaica is often first to be picked up.

Yes it may be bigger then POR, or walks can be longer because CBR only has 1 bridge to connect both sides of lake while POR has several bridges connecting the resort.
