Thank you. I am staying end of November 2014 and was hoping to book on a bounceback but only if the queen beds were in so that's great news!

So then I guess the refurb won't be done by July?
We're already planning our summer trip and think we might have to pick another resort.....

When I spoke with the CBR higher-up and confirmed the April, 2014 refurb, I asked if there was a possibility that we'd get a new room the last week of May, 2014, I was told that it was definitely a possibility.

From what I was told, they will begin on one building, complete it and then continue on to the next building until it's all done.

From what I was told, there is a real possibility that you would be staying in a newly refurbed room in September. As I said above, they will be going from building to building. I stayed in the rooms when they were redone with the Nemo theme. The dressers were replaced, there were new linens and new curtains and we didn't notice any smells or have anything irritate our allergies.

We stayed in a brand newly refurbed room at POR riverside in 2012. No chemical, carpet smells at all. Was lovely!

January 2012 and our AB14 room was spotless and fresh, not smelling newly renovated at all.
