I wasn't exaggerating what the walk felt like to us. Like I said in my original response, we've stayed in a lot of different resorts and it's the only one where it felt like the walking was just too much. If it was a deluxe where some of the walking was enclosed maybe that would have made a difference. I just remember walking back from the Dig site in the August heat and feeling like we had never been in the pool and schvitzing by the time we got back to the room. Just not worth it to me. The OP asked for opinions about why CSR sometimes gets iffy reviews. For lots of people none of this is a big deal, and clearly isn't for you, but for others it might be. To each his own.
