    Looking to do a last minute trip for next month, wondering why CBR is so cheap compared to value resorts. Is there sonstruction, or just a lot of rooms leftover?

    What do you mean by cheap compared to the values? What site are you on and what are the costs?

    I was just at CBR in September for two weeks. There was no construction. It's a great resort and I would highly recommend it over a value.

    CBR has been completely refurbed including rooms and pools! It's a beautiful resort, quiet, relaxing, but with a lot of pool activities for the youngsters!

    I know that Caribbean Beach resort is inexpensive for a group of five people compared to the price of the family suites at the values. However, he definitely get less space in a five person room at Caribbean Beach, then you would in a value family suite. But for a group of four or fewer people, the values should still be less expensive.

    When I priced out POR and CBR, CBR was about 20/night cheaper. Not a huge savings but I am guessing it is because of the size of the resort? Maybe just the least popular mod?

    Probably. POR seems to book up quicker.

    I think it is the walking distance to things. I have heard that as a main complaint. Personally it is still my fav resort.
