I did on-line check in yesterday and had the same problem. I immediately called and they took my requests over the phone with no problem, but they are not guaranteed. We booked a preferred room, so I asked for Trinidad North. We stayed in Martinique in 2010 & 2009. Figured we hit the over 'island' this trip! So looking forward to this trip!!! Hope you all get your room requests!

So glad they finally installed wifi!!! In 2010 there still did not have wifi at CBR. I was going to bring my laptop but then decided against it. At least I can connect via my phone to the wifi!

Thanks for the info on the washer/dryer cost. We may need to dry some towels before our flight. These boards are sooooooo helpful!!!!

I have had my requests met for the past 3 years but I only requested villages not specific buildings.

did you pay for preferred b/c that's a preferred building and I'm sure they won't give it to you if you didn't book preferred.

Just did online check in and while it gave me the option of requesting a building, at the end when I hit "submit" it told me it couldn't save my requests and to call. It also wouldn't save a different credit card for room charging. When I called they told me to just change the card at check in as they aren't able to do it for security reasons. Any one ever call to do this before? Should I call back or just do it when we get there?

I have never had that happen to me with it not saving your requests or card online. I would just wait until you get there to add the card and call to make sure your room requests are on your reservations.
What type of building requests did it have on online check in ?

It had Trinidad North or Martinique; close to transportation and ground floor (all "checkable").

I was really surprised that it had the two buildings listed. Of course, then it told me to call the number because my requests could not be saved.

Just back last night from CBR. The resort is very pretty and nice, but we decided it was just too big for us. I had requested Jamaica 45 or Aruba 51, we were in Jamaica 46, which was a close walk to pool and food court.

We are here now. Martinique, building 25. I absolutely love it! We have a ground floor, corner room and it's a very short walk to OPR and the pool. The grounds are very tropical and the entire resort is very relaxing. I would definitely recommend a preferred room as the other villages seem far.
