    There are fax machines available at any office supply store (like Staples, Office Depot/Max.) Would this be a viable option?

    I'm not sure if a week is too far in advance, I've never done a room request before. But I thought I'd offer an alternative suggestion in the meantime.

    It's an option, but my concern is that in the days I took off before the wedding, sending the fax might not take the top priority if there are other things to get done, you know?

    When it comes down to it, my main thing I want is to be somewhere in Casita's 3-5 and a renovated room, so if I don't send it ahead of time, I could always ask when we arrive if they have anything like that available, and hope for the best.

    ALL of the rooms will look like the first picture you posted. The second picture is what the rooms looked like before the rehab; the rooms that are not completed yet (Casitas 1, 2 and 3's first three floors) still look like the second picture. ALL rooms will be completed by October 09.

    Thanks for answering so quickly. :)

    Wow! I'm glad to hear that. This definitely makes me want to choose CSR for my next trip.

    I just got in from my first stay at CSR. I was there for Jostens Adviser University July 11-14, and my family came along. I requested Cabanas 9B because of its proximity to both the dig site and El Centro. However, I hadn't really grasped the size of the resort when I made my request. As it turns out, it would have been better to request a building closer to El Centro, as my husband and kids only went over to the Dig Site for 2 brief times.

    The grounds (what I got to see of them) were beautiful, and the staff was very friendly. The convention center staff was also very helpful and friendly. We had originally planned to stop on the road somewhere coming in, but my husband decided on the way down to drive straight through. I called to see if we could get a room at CSR on the way, and since it was after the group reservation line had closed for the night, we had to book it at the standard rate instead of the group rate that we had booked the rest of the trip. When I was checking in for my convention Saturday, I saw 2 gentleman that were convention center CM's. I asked them if there was any way to get an adjustment for the difference between the standard rate and the group rate for the one night. One of them took me down to the front desk and introduced me to a woman who was the manager on duty. He explained my situation and she said she would be glad to take care of it for me. Later in the day when I saw the same man in the halls, he remembered me and asked if I got it taken care of.

    The only negatives I can think of (other than the vastness of the resort) was the experience my husband and kids had in the Pepper Market. They had a really long wait for chicken strips for my youngest son (about 20 minutes), and they said that the quality of their food just wasn't that good. I never ate there myself, but they decided one meal there was enough.

    We had a nice stay, but we probably won't be repeat visitors just because it was a little big for our taste. We really like Wilderness Lodge, and part of why is because of the cozy feel it has. Thanks everybody for all the tips leading up to our trip!

    Let me get this straight, I have been reading alot of conflicting information about the Cabanas 9B. Is it true that only business concierge guests can request Cabanas 9b now, or can i as a regular resort guest still request this area (my trip is september 19 to 26)?

    Thanks :)

    Thanks ms.yt for the pics! They're beautiful and make me miss that place even more! I stayed in Cabanas 9B too and loved it!

    From what I hear, if a convention isn't booked, you can get 9B. i don't know though. I know there was a convention going on when we were there and we got 9B. My TA made the request so who knows?!

    Kat, can't wait to see the new thread!

    Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the CSR. We've always had great managers willing to help us out with a problem--glad you had that too! Glad you tried it and certainly understand that you prefer a smaller resort, but glad you enjoyed your stay anyway. Your pictures are lovely. Do you mind if I use some of them at some point for the new CSR thread?

    You can request 9B. If a convention has not "paid" for those rooms, they will be available to regular resort guests.


    momma2kiddos, you are right!

    And the new thread will be up in a day or two. It's in the editing stage. :)

    Ms.yt, I spend too much time looking at other people's vacation pics, I admit! But something about yours, the light in some of them, I could practically taste the Florida sunshine. Ahhhhh. Which is good, b/c I am not getting much sunshine at my house these days!! Thank you. :)

    Thanks! I took these on the last day of a 4 day photography workshop, so I guess I was feeling inspired!
