Dinner at PM is a la carte. There is a 10% fee charged at dinner, but it has been reported that the service charge is not added for people on the DDP (we always pay out of pocket, so I can't say from experience).
So if I do pay OOP Do they automatically add the 10% gratuity to my bill at the register? I believe that is what someone else told me. Thank you for your help!

When we were there, yes. But since then they made breakfast and lunch a buffet, which like most buffets I would assume comes with no tip added. Usually at a buffet, you leave whatever you like for the folks bringing you coffee etc..

I stepped onto the grass on the other side; it wasn't any greener, just different.......A candle loses nothing of its light by lighting another candle......I wasn't born a princess, but if the tiara fits......

If you pay OOP, they will add a 10% service charge at dinner only. There is no charge added at breakfast or lunch.

WOO HOO!!!! Cannot wait for our first stay. This thread played such a big part in picking this resort! We are just 11 days away.

We are here now, I love having the wifi we have no problem connecting. They changed our locks today when we were out to the new card tap ones glad I read about it here we didn't have a card on our door how to use it but our neighbor did it's ver easy. Last time we stayed here was before they refurbished the rooms they are so much nicer. We are looking forward to spending some time at the dig site! Did they always have the security gates just to drive around to elcentro? I'm hoping tropical storm issac stays away please!! Linda

Has anyone been at CSR before during a hurricane? I was just wondering what kind of preparations they made there and how it was handled.

We arrived the night Ernesto was going right over Orlando. They took us to our room (no walking around the resort). I think there was a written sheet in the room saying if we needed anything to call, and to stay inside! It was a tropical storm by the time it went over Orlando, so nothing like Charley.

The next day, I noticed they were putting back all the outdoor pool furniture they had taken down.

If your stay is during a hurricane, they give you specific instructions based on the severity of the storm/hurricane.

You would need to stay in your room, which at CSR means have what you need in the way of food, beverages and medications since you can't go out!
