Just stayed there earlier this month, the room we had was fantastic. Everything is almost new condition, and the entire room was very clean.

Aruba is across the lake from Old Port Royale and the main pool. It isn't a bad walk.

Thanks! I was looking at the map and it looks like there is a bridge that goes accross the lake by the 5100 building thats listed as the only smoking building is this what I see?

OK I'm getting more and more convinced to try out CBR. We had stayed at FQ our past few trips and we would like to try something new. We were afraid of all the coments of it's size. We will be driving does each section have thier own parking lot?

Yes each section has its own parking area. I found CSR to feel much larger than CBR. You will have a great time at CBR.

Safetymom - thanks for the info. We are taking our 4 yr old son to WDW for the first time on 3-22. Just made our res today for CBR. Which bldg should we request in Martinique 25 or 26 for closeness to pool and view of fireworks. Also is there a particular block of rooms we should request? I saw a pic on your site of Mart. bldg facing beach. Do the first floor rooms facing the beach have sliding doors that open to walk out to the beach? If so which bldg is that and what block of rooms? Is this the beach that you can see the fireworks from?

No sliding doors that open to the beach. All the rooms at CBR are the same, only the bedding is different.

The beach at Martinique is a great place for watching the fireworks. I have stayed in 25 and 26 and enjoyed them both. You may want to be near the quiet pool since it is less crowded.

Which bldg is near the quiet pool - 25 or 26? So does bldg 25 have a better water/beach view than 26? I guess I am trying to get the best of it all for our 1st trip - close to OPR, 1st floor, good view of fireworks right out my door and good view of beach/water. Is it possible and if so what do I request? I realize that doesnt mean I will get it but it is worth a shot. ALso, is one bldg closer to bus stop than the other or are they about the same?

Thanks so much for all of your wonderful help. Any other advice is greatly appreciated. I really need to start working on our itinerary and get my character meals scheduled. We just booked today so I better get busy.

Ok I just got home last week from CBR and I'm looking at the map and 25 is closer to the quiet pool and Bldg 25 is centered in front of the water with 26 to the right behind it. IMHO 25 would have a better water view.

I would call CRO and have your preferences noted on your reservation from most important to least. Also it doesn't hurt to ask at check-in...my last two times at CBR they were able to accomodate me at check-in with a request for Jamaica Bldg 44 (thought both trips were in Value Season (Oct/Jan)

Building 26 is actually closer to the OPR bus stop than the Martinique stop and Bldg 25 from the map seems about equal distance to either depending on where you are in the building.

I hope you enjoy your stay at CBR it is my favorite moderate resort

I am thinking of faxing my room request tommorrow but still not sure of a few things. We are celebrating our 25th anniversary and would like to stay either in Jamaica or Aruba. Do they have corner king-size bed rooms with water views? Should I ask for 1st or 2nd floor does that even matter for the view?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Safetymom is the one to ask about the corner room / King bed thing, but I've been told that if you dont want bushes or shrubbery blocking your view then to make sure you get 2nd floor.

gemini14, we stayed at CBR in December, in Jamaica 45, room 4553. It was a corner room overlooking the lagoon and walkway and the view was great. But I could tell that, if we had been on the first floor, the shrubs and trees would have blocked a lot of the view. I think first floor views in general are going to be iffy because there is so much landscaping.

Let's just say there were few words spoken and no meals cooked for quite some time.

I have a question regarding the quality of food at Shutters. How is it? We are intending on eating there once or twice during our stay. Also, would it be wise to make PS? (stay is early march)

Question #2...
How far is the walk from check-in to Martinique? Do they aide you with your luggage or is it a here's your room key figure it out kind of deal? Thanks!
