    We just got back this afternoon!

    We stayed at Coranodo Springs for the first time. The resort is STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL!!!!! We were in Casitas 5. We had a car...so the location was fine. We did not ride the buses....but saw them all the time. My boys - DS9, DS6 & DH LOVED the Dig Site pool! We also enjoyed our quiet pool near the room. Mousekeeping was fine, our room was clean enough, and most importantly it was READY when we checked in at 11:30 am.

    BUT NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WOULD BE NO MICKEY ICE CREAM BARS AT CSR!!!!!! WAH!!!!!! What's up with that?????

    Seriously, though CSR has become DH's Favorite!!!! We all enjoyed it very much.

    We were in Casitas 5 too! It's one of the most beautiful resorts we've ever visited either in the states or in Europe.

    Wow!! This is so great to hear. My friend and I are staying there in September for Free Dining . . . but being the OCD person I am (;) ) I keep looking at other resorts and wondering . . .

    It's not the outside of the resort - that looks stunning, it's the inside of the rooms. They look a little . . . uhm . . . too bright and "busy". :confused3 Am I the only one who thinks this?

    Also, I am becoming very confused about location to request. We are renting a car and my friend suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, so we need to be reasonably close to the parking lot. Everyone raves about Cabana B, but that looks a little far away from the car. (I'm trying to not be resentful of my friend's condition, but I would have loved a waterview from that location) I absolutely love the outside looks of the Casitas, but the last thing I want to hear are partying conventioners. Even with my "sound" machine, I hear EVERYTHING. :headache: I also think the Ranchos look interesting, but they also look hot with no lush vegetation.

    Oh why, oh why, do we torture ourselves with our decisions?:sick:

    Most of the time,the convention people are in Casitas 1. We were in casitas 5 and were never bothered. Casitas 5 has a parking lot right outside the door. Just call and explain that you have a medical request and ask to be near the parking lot. We had what was probably the most beautiful parking lot view ever!:rotfl: The landscaping is so lush that you couldn't see the lot.

    Thanks so much for the info. I had seen an aerial view of the grounds and noticed that Casita building was very close to the parking lot. (verified building number from buzz2001 site). Thanks again . . . so it is either Casita 5 to accommodate my friend . . . or Cabana 9B to accommodate me (for the waterview). :laughing: Actually, the photos of the Casita area are my favorite. :cloud9:

    Did you eat at Mayas? If so, what did you think?

    As someone who stayed frequently at CR during their bright and colorful phase, I don't find CSR to be bad at all. But, then, I usually remove the bedspreads right away when I check in, and that takes a lot of the bright and busy away.

    We will be arriving around 1:00. Do they ever allow early check-ins or will we have to wait until 3:00?

    I adore Casitas. The Palm Court is very cool, but a waterview room in Casitas 5 is to die for.

    The rooms look much nicer in person than in photos. I was worried about the busy colors and patterns as well, but they seem to fit together perfectly!
