I was wondering if there is an added charge for the rooms with murphy beds. We will have people in the room. Thanks

We just checked in and let me tell you what. I already knew this resort was beautiful but the room I got was as requested all request granted of course.

But:
1. There is a quarter sized tear in the comforter in our royal room.
2. There is a coffee tray by the tv had a layer of dust all around it like it never gets moved, and someone checked out of it right before we got here.

But other than that the room was great. Heading now to Guest Relations to mention the comforter issue so we don't get billed. Pics will come soon. If you have requests of anything particular needing pics of PM me and I will see what I can do if its not terribly out of my way.

I have a question about these rooms too. Is there room for an air mattress? Debating between 2 value rooms, or one room here. Going to be 4 adults and 1 child though, so it will probably be too cramped at POR.

My understanding is there is not an extra charge as long as the guest consist of 2a and 3c. I think any extra charge is only incurred if there are more than 2 adults in the room.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Besides a PP who had a bad experience at CSR, has anyone else stayed at CBR and POR before? Why do you think POR is better?

We put a twin sized air mattress by the door (between bed and door) and just propped it up during the day.

Maybe request "Magnolia Bend, close to bridge"? That way maybe you will get lucky and get one of the rooms in the midsection of the resort, facing the river, vs one of the ones at the very back of the building? We just booked this week for our November trip too! So exciting!

Have stayed at both. Really liked CBR very relaxing, would do it again. POR though does have bigger beds, elevators (mostly) and the boat to DTD. The staff at both where lovely and the buses are about the same. If there is a word to describe CBR it would be lush.

Oops! I realized I typed the wrong initials...I meant CSR...BUT that's good to know about CBR too because I'm completely undecided at the moment as to which moderate to book for our summer trip!

No, it's not true. You can actually book five adults if you like - but you do need to be made aware of the size of the extra fold-down bed (63"). And also remember the additional-adult surcharges, which can add up!

Nope, no extra charge for five people as long as at least three of them are kids (i.e. 17 or under). However in any room type there is a $15 per adult per night supplement for any more than two adults (i.e. aged 18+).

Yes, you can fit a single (a.k.a. twin) air mattress inbetween the bed and the entrance door. You can prop it up against the wall during the day.

Have stayed in CSR ( a year and a half ago) as well. Liked it the least. Found the set up to be convoluted. We booked preferred and it was not convenient to anything. Main pool was pretty far from main building so getting a refill on your mug was a hassle. The staff was sub -par to down right rude. CSR has a lake but nothing happens on it, no kids activities, no boats , no anything. Even the on site dining was unimpressive. The Maya Grill's food wasn't very good . The quick service staff was the worst. One example was a woman asked a cook in one of the stations a question and the cook ignored her. When the woman asked the cook the question again the cook took her spatula pointed to the sign and went back to the grill.
