I also just found pics of Cabana 4 showing the corner bench, but no outside chairs - just the two loungers and bench outside with only two chairs & the couch inside.

Now I'm wondering if maybe they're all a bit different in seating depending on how/where they're situated!

Is it possible that the additional seating may depend on how many are booked in the cabana?

That would make sense. Interesting thought.

We were 5 - 3 adults & 2 kids.

So maybe for larger groups they remove the bench and add extra chairs?

Wondering if all cabanas are getting refurbed/updated?


Inside were:

1 3-seater couch
2 chairs
1 bench/low long teak
2 tables teak

Would someone kindly orientate me? I still cannot find a CC map that includes numbered cabana locations. Which numbered cabanas are closest to Pelican Plunge? Anyone know?

The furniture on Serenity Bay at least has definitely been changed then - this is what we had in Cabana 19 in April:



The 4 wooden back chairs in your video have been replaced by two oversize chairs with padded backs and a corner chaise has been added.

On the family beach, the cabanas start near Cookies Too and the numbers go up.

Cabana 1, closest to Cookies Too, is the handicap accessible cabana.

Cabanas 11 - 17 are furthest out and are on a rocky section of the beach with no swimming and no beach chairs/umbrellas.

Cabanas 18-21 are on Serenity Bay, the adults only beach.

Here is a Castaway Cay map: http://www.insidethemagic.net/wp-con...away-Cay-1.jpg

And here is a numbered picture I found online:


(Note, they are numbered incorrectly on the left - there is no Cabana 13. From the left they are 17, 16, 15, 14, 12...)

We're staying in #9 on October 23. Anybody stayed in that one?

What's it like? View? Proximity to beach?

What will the water temperature be like that late in October?

Any other suggestions or ideas? It will be our first time on Castaway Cay.

Im confused by this. Are these family ones? If you get assigned those there is no swimming?

They kind of go back around that corner on the left side. We had #16 and we had to walk down the path from our cabana, turn left and then walk down to the beach area where the volleyball court, umbrellas and chairs were.

So you still have access to the beach, it just isn't straight out in front of the cabana, like it is with the lower numbered ones.
