Just returned from a 4 night stay at CBR.
Yes, you can see the construction at the resort. You drive right by it when you are coming into the resort from Custom House. There are gates up, but you can still see what was going on. This is from the bridge coming from Jamaica to the pool area.
We were in Jamaica building 46 and could not hear or see any construction from our building.
Every cast member that we encountered was so pleasant and helpful! When we checked in, we were given an explanation of everything happening and all of our options for food and an additional concierge location. There was also a pamphlet in the room with the food options.
I visited the concierge location that is in room 3109 in Trinidad North to pay on my room balance. They had 2 computers setup to help guests and someone was there greeting people as we walked into the room.
We stopped by the Island Market in Jamaica one morning for some coffee and a muffin before heading to the park. We were told the coffee was complimentary.
We visited the food tent for the breakfast buffet during our stay. The food was very good and the setup worked well. We walked by the pool bar on the way. There were also tables setup on the beach for people to sit outside and eat.
We had a car, but we also took the bus a few times. Jamaica was the first on and off for our trips except our return from Disney Springs.
I would not have a problem staying here again during construction. It is still a beautiful resort even with the construction.
