Food Court - how much time should we allow if we wanted to eat breakfast at one of the quick service places in the food court. There are two morning for sure that I want to do breakfast there before heading out the park. I guess I am wondering how quick is the quick service. lol It would be nice to get waffles/sausage or omelets etc. That would be a "good" breakfast at a quick service price rather than just a pastry of some sort.

TIA!
I think most of the region pools are heated. The Main pool, i'm not sure about. You can get towels at the big pool but should bring your own to the regional pools.

Food - quick service is pretty fast. Some of the areas to get food serve the same things at breakfast (or a slight variant), so you can choose the smaller queue to hop into There is an omelette spot (last food spot - closest to Shutters)!

Hope this helps!

I believe the rule is 4 + 1 under 3, however it's best to check with the hotel directly

We ate at Shutters on our trip in '10. Not horrible, but it wouldn't be my first choice. The menu was somewhat limited, but seating when we wanted it (walk-up) was a piece of cake. If you don't feel like leaving the resort, but want a table service meal, I suppose this would be okay, but honestly, we only did it because we were dog tired and didn't want what was in the Counter-service that night.

I got a preffered room, does it help at all with the bus situation? With 7 stops, will Trinidad north and Martinique be picked up first?

The buses come in two different entrances...So sometimes Martinique is first, other times Jamaica is first. If Martinique is first, Trinidad North will be 2nd or 3rd...if Jamaica first, then 4th or 5th (can't remember if it stops at OPR or not).

all depends on what entrance they use and what park you are going to. Sometimes we went immediately from Barbados to the park, sometimes we stopped at all the other stops first.

Hey, I was wondering if I should upgrade from a water view room to a pirate standard view room?

How long is the walk from the Pirate rooms in Trinidad south to the eating area? From looking at the map it looks pretty daunting...

Yes. Unless you book a Pirate Themed room.

We were there in October and some friends of ours were going over the holidays and staying in a Pirate Room. They were concerned about the location of Trinidad South so I took a walk from OPR to the farthest point of Trinidad South. It took 8 minutes at a very leisurely pace as I was stopping to take pictures along the way to show them.

Hi and !

A water view can be any view of water, a pool or the lake.

Without requesting a water view we were lucky enough to get a view of the lake during both of our stays. However we were not in the room enough to enjoy the view.

A water view was nice but not something I would pay for on my future CBR stays.

We have never stayed in a pirate themed room. I would booked the room your family would enjoy the most.

I hope this helps,
Amy
