Here's the info from Page 1, Post 14 (Other Useful Info)


What kind of coffeemakers are in the resort rooms?

As of October 2011, the drip coffee makers in the BC and YC resort rooms were replaced.

The regular resort rooms and club level rooms (including Deluxe Rooms) now have the Cuisinart Double Pod Machines:



Thanks for the photos Rorey, Cinderumbrella and MickeyT!

Here is what I believe are in the rooms currently. Anyone who has been there more recently, please correct this info if it is wrong:

All regular (non-club level) rooms: Cuisinart Pods

All standard club level rooms, all views (standard meaning non-suite), including Deluxe Club Level Rooms: Cuisinart Pods

Suites (1 BR, 2 BR, VP, Presidential Suites): Keurig K-cup

Beach Club Villas- Mr. Coffee-type makers (4 cup for studio, 10 cup for 1BR, 2BR)

I think this applies to both BC and YC- again, let me know if I am wrong!
I read somewhere yesterday, on another thread, that one of the hotels (I think it was the GF maybe??) now has Joffrey's pods in the rooms. Did I dream that??? LOL I swear I read it somewhere. So maybe YC/BC will upgrade their pods as well???

Yes please! I'm really looking forward to our CL stay coming up in October, but this concerns me a bit. We're actually, at this moment, staying CL at the Sheraton Eau Claire in Calgary, on a trip to visit DH's family. And I have to say, I'm really regretting paying the upcharge for club services here. Granted, the breakfast here is really nice (and more extensive than I believe the BC CL will be), but the service is pretty basic, wine/beer/liquor not included (and $15 for a glass of wine!!!), and pretty minimal appetizers in the evening. For an extra $75 per day, we cold have gotten that breakfast for less at the hotel restaurant and grabbed a few snacks for the room from the grocery store on our way here.

It's not about exactly how much we're spending. I guess it's more about the overall feel. CL should feel kinda special, right? I'm still trying to figure out how to use the IC services to make the trip really special for my kids, and am loving the fact that cocktails are included. Wondering... although DH is looking forward to the trip now, he wasn't exactly enthusiastic about *another* trip to the world. Maybe IC could help me come up with something to make this trip extra special for him, too, and make HIM want to come back.

The summer is going to be busy at SAB, but since the pool complex is so large (3 acres), and room keys are checked to make sure people are not pool-hopping, there is usually room to spread out and the pool doesn't feel very cramped (my experience from July afternoons)

If you are going in September, after schools countrywide are back in session, the pool should be even less crowded.

We stayed at Portofino last time (I remember reading about your stay there), but we think this will be much more our style, and I love how close it is to the parks.

We are a family of 5 and were SV CL. Our room looked out toward the bus stop thru the trees. I know they say rooftop views but another advantage of CL is that you are up on the 5th floor so looking straight out you see a nice view. When you look down you see a roof. I think if you were on a low floor the roof may not be as appealing.

We're planning to go back soon, maybe Spring Break, and I'm leaning towards RP again. It's a bit further to walk but wasn't too bad. It feels a lot closer than Portofino.

We are staying at BC November 2-9. Celebrating our 40th Anniversary and our DDs and friends will be joining us for all the Food & Wine deliciousness. This will be our 17th year to experience the F & W Festival and 10 of those we have stayed at the BC. It is just about as perfect as it can be!

Maybe I missed something, but, they are expanding the BC CL lounge? Any idea when it will be completed? That's great news, they really need a larger lounge!
