I stayed in Aug. 2014. I was a bit worried about it as it wasn't a place I wanted to stay, but I wanted to try all resorts so booked my short trip there. It was fabulous and beautiful. So much better than I expected. The rooms were being refurbished then and I got one of the newly done rooms. Trip advisor can often be misleading as it all goes on people's experiences and wants. What one person thinks is bad is wonderful to another person. Go with what you think you would like. It does not however look run down.haven't looked through the whole thread but some beautiful pics there, we booked Caribbean beach and were wondering if we would regret it, having stayed at POR FQ and SSR, we deiced to book CBR based on budget and were getting nervous looking at the TripAdvisor review saying it looked run down etc...but i now know these are rubbish.
Thank you very much.Your photos are absolutely beautiful ! What kind of camera do you use?
I checked out your link for your flickr Disney pics. Now those are some very nice photos! How did you get the close up of the hippos?Thank you very much.
Well, I lug around more camera equipment than most people of sound mind are willing to carry. I have a Canon 5D Mk III DSLR and a slew of lenses. Note that I also bring along a tripod on my early morning strolls.
Thank you maryjI checked out your link for your flickr Disney pics. Now those are some very nice photos! How did you get the close up of the hippos?
So awesome !
We stayed at CBR from 12/19/17 to 12/26/17 We were concerned because of the constrcution happening now however we had an awesome stay and as weird as it may sound it was very relaxing we were in Aruba building 55 very close to the construction and barely noticed it .Really enjoyed seeing the photos on the last few pages of this thread. Sadly the ones from the older pages are no longer there.
My daughter and I will be at WDW in November, staying in our favorite resort (Port Orleans Riverside) but...DH and I will be staying a few days the following February and I have been thinking about booking the trip to stay at CBR and after seeing the photos I definitely want to stay there!! It looks like a beautiful resort, I love the lake, hammocks, wildlife, etc. Just to take a walk on all the pathways at the resort would be fun. Looking forward to following this thread for the next few months, to see more photos.
