Just returned home yesterday from 9 nights at CBR. Had an amazing time at the resort again -- and the slides and splash area closed at 10pm when the life guards went off duty. Pools were open 24 hours as you mentioned though.

More love for CBR

We went in 2009 -- I'm playing around on this site to feed my need to go back!

We stayed in a pirate room with our two young sons and loved it! If anyone is going for the pirate rooms with little boys, here is a fun idea. I went to some of our cheap-y stores locally -- Big Lots, Dollar Tree, Party City - etc. and put together huge and fabulous gift bags of pirate themed goodies. Chocolate gold coins, pirate hats, coloring books, plastic swords, even a PIRATE MICKEY stuffed plush animal from Walgreens, of all places!

I snuck into the room before the kids and put the bags on the table. The kids thought the goodie bags were a gift from Mickey and friends. They were a huge hit!

Also, I found a CD of Disney pirate music that we played every time we drove around the complex. It made it all very fun.

Lucky you. I'm jealous! The mugs are the same generic design that they have been for years now.

Thank you! Really wish they would go back to resort specific mugs. I have an old one from 1999 CBR - very cool

You know, sometimes you can get lucky and find some at yard sales. I've picked up one for the All Stars (generic for all 3 resorts I think....) and one for All Star Sports. My daughter is like why do you want those. I just think they are cool to have.

Never thought of garage sales! They sure have a lot this time of year- I should check them out.

When was CBR last renovated?

Hi all,

I know that this question has probably been answered somewhere in this thread, but it is 215 pages long....

Can anyone tell me when the last time Caribbean Beach Resort was renovated? I have stayed here a few times and I am thinking about booking a trip for September. I can't decide between CBR and CSR.

Thanks!

We just left on Sunday and had separate shampoo and conditioner.

We had the standard hotel wall mount hair dryer. I didn't bring my own, but never really used it to completely dry my hair. It would have taken awhile if I needed to.

The weather was hot enough that I just threw my hair up in a ponytail, so I might not be the right one to answer.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the last renovation was in 2008. We stayed at CBR in Dec of 2008 and had newly refurbished rooms.

For what it is worth, we stayed at both and the 2 do not compare in my opinion. We love CBR,
