Thumbs up All Star Music Family Suites - Great!

We just returned from a stay at the All Star Music Resort. We stayed in their new Family Suites.

DS slept on the chair that folds out into a bed, and DD slept on the couch that folds out into a bed. They said that they were comfortable. I laid down on DD's bed one morning, and it was fine for me. No bar in the middle of your back.

We loved having separate bathrooms. The kids had one and we had the other. I really liked having the curtain for the dressing area. It gave a little privacy when you are trying to get dressed.

We loved the kitchenette. The refrigerator has a freezer section, but it never froze any of our water bottles. It just made them very cold. It did freeze my freezer packs by the time we left though.

Mousekeeping was wonderful. They kept us fully stocked with supplies. They even folded my children's clothes, that they had left on the floor, and put them neatly on the ottoman. The only thing was that they only took my mousekeeping tip one day. I put them in an envelope marked "Mousekeeping", but they must have been told not to take them.

We had two tv's, but only one remote. When I called the front desk, they sent us a new remote within thirty minutes.

We stayed in Calypso 10. It was a great location. We faced the pool, but never heard any pool noise. We were very close to the main building and the small parking lot, which was great for loading and unloading the car.

Sometimes we had to park in the main parking lot, but the walk wasn't bad. The only negative thing I would say is that they aren't done with the construction of all the Family Suites, and they are set up in the parking lot. It took up quite a number of the available parking spaces. We never had trouble finding a space. It just might be a long walk back to the building. Really not bad at all.

Also, the air conditioning worked really well! It was nice to come back to a cool room after being out in the heat all day, but it got sort of cold at night while sleeping. We remedied this by taping a washcloth over the vent, so it wouldn't blow on us at night.

I would recommend these suites to anyone. It was perfect for what we wanted, which was separate sleeping areas, and a kitchenette.

Sounds like you all had a wonderful time, the suites also sound great.

I just got back from staying in the family suites. They are very nice. We were in Jazz 2. Our room was set up a little different from some of the other ones I have seen posted. The door that connected the 2 rooms was in the front, across from the door. We only had one room safe (i remember reading that there was 2).
There was no privacy curtain by the bathroom.

One afternoon while my daughters napped in the bedroom, I opened up the chair to lie down. It was comfortable, a little narrow.

I took some photos of the room. Let me know if you would like me to link them.

Don't mind our mess.

I'm not sure of how to post the photos. I don't have enough post to include links.
Any ideas? How many post do you need to include links?

You need 10 post, I was able to post the photos. Feel free to ask me any questions.

bathroom area

Notice there is no privacy curtain



View from bedroom into living room. Note the location of the outside door.


We were on the first floor of Jazz 2. We were the second to last room towards the parking lot. THe last room was not a family suite. I think there was 3 family suites in a row. My FIL was 3 rooms closer to the pool from us in a regular room.

There was 2 chairs in the bedroom. The one nearest to the bathroom looked like it opened up to a bed.

The closets had a door. If you look at the photo that you can see the door to the room, the closet is next to it.
