CSR, just back from a great trip!

Arrived early afternoon on 4/3. Checkin went very smoothly, no wait. We requested connecting rooms in either the Casitas or the Ranchos so of course we were assigned Cabanas 9A . The important part of the request was the connecting rooms so we were happy.

For anyone concerned about being assigned to cabana 9A due to its past life as the smoking section check out your room before you automatically ask to be changed. Of the three rooms we got only ours had a faint smoke smell when we first walked into the room, but after we cranked up the AC and had Mousekeeping give it a quick spray it was fine. I did very closely check out the carpet, drapes and bedspread but they were fresh and clean, no smoke smell!

The CMs were all very friendly and helpful The Pepper Market was good as was Mousekeepng and the all around cleanliness of our rooms and the resort.

Walking distances were no more than other resorts and those golfcart shuttles were everywhere if you wanted a ride.

The weather could of been better but I think it kept those Love Bugs at bay which was good. There were a lot of conventioneers at the resort but the only time we saw large numbers together was at the Luguana Bar in the evening. I guess they weren't given anything to drink at the meetings because they sure were a thirsty bunch at night .

We would stay at CSR again in a heart beat!

Thanks for reading!

OP, just a few questions for you, if you don't mind:

Were your beds comfy?

Did you use the buses? If so, how were they?

Did you like the interior of your room?

Much thanks!

I am not the OP but

The beds are very comfy pillow top thick mattress's15-17 inch kind (didnt have a ruler) slept wonderfully every night

busses were fantastic -we went during value season

the decor of the room was fine- nothing fancy- just exactly as you see on the websites- Room was great with central air

Mom22boys-

The beds were very comfortable. I was a little worried because they are full size compared to queen size in the deluxes, but they were fine. However my DH and I are not tall people.

The buses were timely and never over crowded except returning from MNSSHP one night. A few people had to stand. I do have to say, I've never seen such a constant flow of buses at a resort. This was our 16th stay on property(first at a mod, all others a deluxe or SOG) and this was the first time we've never had bus issues!

The rooms were very nicely appointed. The furniture sized just right for the space. Very warm and inviting color scheme. Sink and bathroom area workable. I told my DH my favorite part of the trip was having a bathroom in our bedroom as we are doing a major bathroom renovation at home (think DIY) and I have to venture out to the hallway bathroom every morning.

The Mousekeeping was also very good. As was the overall cleanlinees of the rooms and resort. There were always CMs in every common area picking up trash and tidying up. I was impressed.
