Would you be getting 2 rooms then? Or one of the suites at CSR? Because with a family of 5, POR is the only mod that could accommodate you in 1 room. CBR and POFQ can only accommodate 4.

I am basically looking at the same thing, although never stayed at POR, so all 3 mods are on our list. DS6 and DD2 here.

DS would pick CSR for the size of the pool (never seemed to be bumping in to to anyone else) + the slide. DD liked CBR better. The theming of CBR can't be beat. It has zero entry so it's nice to be able to sit in the water and watch the kids. The seating on the lounges seemed limited & very crowded. The CSR pool did seem massive, but more like a country club pool. The pyramid is cool with the water running down it. There always seemed to be plenty of seating. Plus--roasting marshmallows poolside is pretty cool! Both have quiet pools spreading around the resort. FWIW-DS was 13 & DD was 8 when we stayed at CSR last year & CBR was the year before if that's helps. We were at CBR the week after Memorial Day in 2011 & at CSR the second week of June 2012. Don't know if any of that helps...We loved both resorts but I think CBR has the edge for us. It had more of a tropical vacation feel. CSR had a little more of an adult feel. Also, CBR has the marina & bike rentals. We rented a little boat twice & the kids loved that! If you're booking a pkg you should get some discount vouchers included. Have a great trip!

CBR has zero entry and pirate themed pool with 2 slides. A separate pirate splash area for kids. Our kids loved it.

CBR has a pirate/Spanish themed pool that has 2 slides. Also has kids pirate adventure at the resort. A added plus is that the food court is very close by the pool and you can sit at a table nearby. The main pool is my daughter's favorite pool. That being said my favorite pool was CSR. Much more adult in feel, even with the slide. The main pool was probably one of the only things I liked about CSR

CBR for the pirate themed pool, but if your kids aren't into that theming, then the CSR pool is awesome.
