CSR Was Lovely!

Well we have been home from CSR for a week....We checked into the CSR on October 28th and checked out on November 5th.

We LOVED this resort! It was relaxing, unpretentious and gorgeous. We have been POR fans for along time, but this will be the very next moderate we book at, it is now our favorite place to stay.

We ate in Pepper Market several times, and the servings are sooo HUGE...we shared one meal as my partner could not finish it. My only complaint about the market is that some meals come as Combo's when all you want is just the entree, or sandwich, but you have to take the Combo as is. They should offer it as separate items. I tried to do that and management said it was not available, HOWEVER, he did refund my item as the info about Combo meals wasn't clear. SO service was wonderful.

The staff was attentive, helpful and very friendly.

Folks in the Business Center are a GEM! If you need to check on your flight, or check email, no problem and NO CHARGE! If you need to use it a little longer for quick checks on things, that wasn't a problem either, like I was there about every day checking my email and reading the weather reports. Was really nice.

We were in Casitas 3 on the 2nd floor. Room 3261 , IT ROCKED. I am in an ECV and did not have any problem getting around the resort, getting to our room or going anywhere I needed to. Room was comfortable and housekeeping was quite efficient.

ECV/Wheelchair access was great anywhere I went on property at CSR.

The internal shuttles they run around the complex came in handy for my partner on several occasions. If we needed a ride all we need to do was tell Bell Services and they let the person running the cart know I was waiting for transport. If it was a wait for a cart it was no longer then a few minutes.

As for the Bus Transportation, I was quite pleased with it and never had a problem getting a bus except once when a bus was filled and no room for our ECV, he said another was coming and sure enough it was. The Busses coming back late at night tended to get full and I think there was only once when the bus was filled like a sardine can...compared to like ALL THE TIME at All Stars or Port Orleans. Longest we waited one night there was a back up of busses to Downtown Disney and we waited like 20 minutes, was no biggie though.

All in all, a great stay at CSR and we can't wait to go back!

Thanks for the update. I have read so many good reviews on CSR here lately that I think it will be our next resort of choice. We like to try different hotels each time we travel to WDW.
