I would vote for Casitas.
Cabanas.... even though it's nice.... is my least favorite section. Reminds me too much of Caribbean Beach.

Sept 2007 (Casitas) - Sorry, it's not foggy out. It's just my camera going from inside to outside.





Loved, loved, LOVED CSR!

Oh my ... it looks so nice there! And your right, we already stayed at CBR in 2006, so looking for something different. Casitas look perfect!

So next question ... Ive looked at Buzz's map a hundred times! Which building? We'll use the gym, and the main pool, and the quiet pool, and the pepper market ...

We always stay in Casitas 4 or 5 and 4 is right by the quiet pool and the spa/gym. We were in Building 5 last year and it took me one minute to walk to Building 4 for the quiet pool and spa.

Is it a long walk to the main pool and pepper market from there?

Depending on what you want to be close to, here are some good building choices.

Cabana 9b is close to bus stop 1 and the main building with a short walk to the Dig Site (main pool) over the wooden bridge. Most convenient location and most preferred.

Cabana 8a is close to the Dig Site (and playground) and bus stop 4 with a short walk to the main building. (Closest to the Pool)

Cabana 8b and 9a are in between the 2 above. 9a has a quiet pool.

Ranchos 7b has a quiet pool, is close to the Dig Site and bus stop 4 with a bit longer walk to the main building. 7b is behind cabana 8a.

Casita 1 is attached to the main building and is very close to the restaurants.

Casita 3 has great courtyard and fountain views but you will have to walk or ride the internal shuttle to get to the pool.

Casita 5 has some nice fountain and lake views and is close to the Dig Site but farther from the main building. Close to bus stop #2.

It took me five minutes to walk to the Pepper Market and about seven to ten minutes to walk to the main pool. I do walk a little more brisk than some people.
