Honestly, our family just writes the name of all the contenders on a post it note and scatters them on the floor. Then we call the dog over and the first one he touches is the one we pick. If something goes wrong at the resort, or if we don't like it, we can blame the dog for picking it. When we get home we are sure to give him the stink eye for a day or two. This makes everybody feel better, but not so much the dog, who is probably wondering what we got in our eye while we were on vacation.

Now if you have a situation where YOU want to stay some place and everyone else wants a different place.... well what you do is rub peanut butter or bacon on your post it note when the rest of the family is NOT looking. You give the dog the secret wink and lay your post it note down. Those dogs have noses like you wouldn't believe so it's a sure bet he's going to run over to your note and touch it first. Just be sure to give the dog a treat after he picks your note, otherwise he will hold a grudge and defeat your scheming the next time you have to use this system of choosing a resort.

Remember, if you "Help" the dog pick your resort choice there is no giving the dog the stink eye if you have any problems on vacation, because that choice was all yours, the dog was just in it for the bacon.

I like the dog picking method!

We stayed at CBR, POR and CSR. I really liked CSR and would choose it hands down for an adult only trip. We stayed in Casitas 5. It was very close to the bus stop(the first one they stop at, so no standing on the bus and also the first dropped off). It was near the fitness center and a great quiet pool by Casistas 4. It did take maybe 5-6 min. to walk to the main pool or the food court, but that didn't bother us. (I'm not sure why it would have taken someone 20 minutes from there to walk to the main pool. That must have been a pretty slow pace.)

I liked that it was a convention resort. I didn't even notice anyone there for a convention but I know there was one going on while we were there. There are more food choices there. I wasn't crazy about the tipping thing at the pepper market. The bus stop at the parks for CSR is one of the first ones you get to...so less walking to get to your bus after a long day.

The main pool is great. There is a LARGE hot tub at it. There is also a sauna at the fitness center that can be used for free. There are spa services available(for a fee) that might be nice on an adult only trip.

We thought the rooms were a bit more comfortable than the other mods. The beds have a duvet like cover on them instead of traditional bedspreads. We liked that a lot! The toiletries are a bit nicer than the other mods too. A bit more of a "grown up" "luxury" feel to it than the other mods. There is only one sink which can be a deal breaker for some people. We had no problem with that(even with 2 teenagers along).

AH. My computer froze before I could post my reply.

Thank you for the info! We wound up booking CSR for Sept 17-24 on Saturday!

We went for business class to take advantage of the lounge and being in Cabanas. My only concern is the bus situation. We'll be closest to El Centro, the last stop. There aren't any conventions going on, and overall crowd levels for the week we'll be there are 1's, so we have our fingers crossed. Even if we have to stand, we don't mind.

I think I ran into you at the CSR info thread! You're going in September too, right? Maybe we'll run into eachother!

We're planning a night in our trip to hang out at the pool and poolside lounge. The pictures I've seen of it at night look so pretty with it all lit up!
