I too have stayed at Poly several times and find I love CSR just as much. So, to each his own. I did not like the lounge at POR. I Know I am in the minority but Yeehaw Bob is not my cup of tea. I missed CSR when I was at POR. Siesta's is open til 7 for drinks. The grill closes at 6. I live on the beach so nowhere in Disney has more than a patch of sand to me but I still enjoy the large hammock and beachy area by the Cabanas section. I would check out the picture threads for whatever resort you're considering and decide for yourself.
