How crowded does the CSR 22 seater hot tub get on weekends ?
Better during the day than at the end of the day ?
Thanks!

Hey CSR fans I need some info! I just booked one of these new executive level rooms.... I didn't even know they existed!! Has anyone stayed in one yet? Any reports?? I'd love to hear more about these "exclusive amenities" and my boys would like to know more about the computers and gaming consoles they have.

Thanks for any info!

Thanks! I've been googling and trying to find info. Considering we thought we wouldn't even get a room on property during Easter week this late in the game I'm pretty pumped about this!

Please do! We had to change our dates because of a school event so instead of 2 weeks I'll be there in 4. I would love to see some reports back while I'm waiting!

So I currently have a business class room booked 8/11-8/18 with a pin code but have to switch our dates b/c airfare came out yesterday and is incredibly more expensive than I'm willing to pay. So now when I look at checking in a week later 8/20 check-in date, the website says there is no availability at CSR. I know there is a huge convention that starts later in August but anyone know why the week of 8/20 shows no availability?

We were just there (Jan 23-30) and used the hot tub around 5 pm. Me and maybe one or two others were also using. Not crowded at all!

You can also fill your mugs at the Digsite (main pool). Cafe Rix is right beside Pepper Market.

Yes, you did get a bit of pixie dust as you got a "preferred" building at your standard rate.

Have a great time; and I know exactly what you mean about that one resort feeling like "home" even when you do others.

Number of King Rooms per Buliding

Okay,I've got a question that I don't' know if anyone can answer. I've got a trip to CSR (our first trip to this resort) scheduled for the end of April. We booked a King room, and I've requested to be in the Casitas (bld. 4 or 5). What do you think my odds are of getting a King on one of those buildings? Are there a good number of King rooms in each building?

I did check without my pin code and it's completely booked! I'm now forced to check into another moderate. We really liked CSR when we stayed in '09 and I was excited to try the business class this time around...won't be this trip i guess

Well, maybe there will be some cancellations. It's still pretty far away. Don't give up.
