    I have never stayed at Caribbean Beach. However, Coronado Springs (not Colorado) is known for its food court. Raally, it offers some of the best dining at reasonable prices and it also has a really great pool with a fun waterslide. I find the grounds to be very pretty and the main building to be architectually interesting. Hope that helps.

    The food court at CSR has its own pros and cons. The food is generally good and the portions are large - a great value especially if you are on DDP. That being said, the concept of their food court differs from others - you are seated by a host or hostess and have a server that brings your drinks and clears your plates. You are given a card that is stamped based on what you buy and you pay your server at the end. Gratuity is expected as well, and even added on in some instances. This is a big turn off for a lot of people.

    Other than that, CBR is bigger than CSR. CBR is so big that it has its own internal bus system that just circles the resort. CBR are also has two double beds in the room whereas all other mods have two queens. However, CBR is undergoing a refurb currently and they are expected to add queens. Depending on the refurb schedule and when you're going, it would be nice to have a newly refurbished room bc IMO, CSR could use a refurb as well.

    Staying at Coronado this Sept. Stayed at CBR many times. It can be a long walk to food areas which are just ok any way. Very quiet. Lot's of sandy areas around lake to relax at. The pools, not including main pool, were usually empty or only a few people in. This would be May, Sept, Oct. trips.
