Nice place but...Having been there just once which was this past March, we must have been in the East wing...not a very exciting place. LOL! And we must have walked around to the left to the tiny pool which is #26 on the map. (I think that's a pool.) We never did venture to the "main" pool which a friend told me about after the fact. The room was very nice. However, our "garden view" was a bush right outside the window and some grass on a tiny hill. The bush touched the window! Very yucky view!! I won't stay in that room again.

Just Gotta Share...

Hi Folks!

DH and I just visited the RP for our Anniversary, and on Friday Nov.1 we dropped by the PB to check things out... And I saw the SWEETEST thing!!

We came upon the aftermath of a marriage proposal! Someone had "(Name) will you marry me?" spelled out, in carved-out, previously lit pumpkins!! and placed together around the edge of the bay (on the side near the ice cream shop). The entire thought was so incredibly beautiful, I almost puddled up... I felt funny about taking a picture (to post) of something that was so incredibly personal to someone else, so I didn't... I'll always remember it though...

Kudos to whomever and wherever the happy couple are!

grumbada, I wish you would have taken a picture of the pumpkin marraige proposal! What a unique and romantic idea.

Thanks Everyone....

Thanks to all of you on this thread, I've just booked us a Deluxe Pool View room at the PBH for May 29 - June 1.

BTW, the tax rate as of Jan. 1 will be going up to 11.5% per night per room- I really budget, so it was nice to be informed of this.

I took advantage of the "Save $5 and free shipping" on an Entertainment book last night, and today I was able to book the PBH at the Entertainment rate!!

It will be our first time at the PBH, so THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!

Entertainment Rate?

What is this Entertainment Rate? How do I get it? We stayed at PBH just a few months after opened and paid full price, I'd love to get a discount this time! Thanks, Dana

Just call the 800 to book and ask for ent. rate code for your dates. THey also offer AP, Fan Club rates. ENt rates seem to be the lowest available. If they can book you at ent rate go to www.entertainment.com and buy ANY book there is a cc looking card in the front of the book that's what they'll ask to see. Also del toria accepts this card in the resturant for discounts.

Thank you Party of Six! I checked on the Universal website last night and they too are running a special. They had PBH gardenview at 166 a night including tax. You just had to buy the tickets through them too, which is fine with me since I need them anyway!

Nan you want to be in the West Villa's for the beach pool and quick trip to the boat dock. I have never heard anyone say that service at PBH is poor. I guess i have'nt read it all. I have been at PBH for 3 stays since July and have had nothing but star treatment from each employee i have talked to. You will love PBH. It's amazing to be there. They do not serve drinks in the lobby unless there having something special, for instance during the holidays they had a wine tasting set up in the lobby one evening. They are talking about bringing club level back to the PBH so you might like to check on that if it interest you. Also welcome to the boards. BTW what dates are you visiting so others will note when you scored your ent. rate.

We took a cooler and put a gal of milk in it. You can buy it at the gift shop next to the front desk also.
