Caribbean Beach or Pop Century

Hi

Deciding whether if worth it to spend $800 more to stay at Caribbean Beach (preferred room) over Pop Century (preferred room). Son will be 7 at time of visit.

thank you

Pop is great. I would spend the $800 on other fun stuff. Or put it towards the next trip wink

I wouldn't for $800. It was only $17 more for me to upgrade to cbr last month for 5 night.

If you really want to upgrade to a MOD so you aren't stuck with tiny beds consider one where you don't have to upgrade to a preferred location like POFQ where everything is compact and close together. May be less of a cost to upgrade.

$800 is a big number difference for me.. That could be your total food budget. Now that being said, Caribbean Beach is a moderate and has more amenities and offerings than Pop and overall is a better experience. But for $800 (is your stay 10 days plus?) I might go with a cheaper resort bill. But if you are looking for a little more out of your resort and plan on some seriou resort time.. a Mod like Caribbean Beach is a great upgrade to Pop!

Yeah, $800 is a chunk of change you can put towards another trip.

Our trip is for 7 days. Thanks for the input. This is our first trip and won't be at the hotel much, except for a day off. I'll book Pop and see if any discounts are announced next year.

I would definately do the POP option. CBR is very pretty, but I think the larger-than-life icons at POP would be much more fun for DS7. Never stayed at a preferred room at CBR, but the size and busses were a real issue for me. I had a "non-preferred" room at POP and had maybe a 5 min walk to the main building in one direction, and a 5 min walk to the car in the other direction. Loved it!

Most definitely go with POP! I would pay 800.00 to stay there over CBR. Pop Century is so clean and nice! We were just there in June and we LOVE it!
CBR.....not a fan. I think they may refurbing the rooms...(greatly needed) but the buses are so slow and the place is just too big!

Also my DS loves the Pop pool!

We love pop. Staying 2nd time in October.

Book Pop and upgrade to CBR if any discounts come out. I think it's worth upgrading to a mod for anything longer than a 4 or 5 day trip. If we stay 7 days, we know that we are going spend more time at the resort and enjoys having a bigger room and nicer pool. I think that the CBR rooms will be very nice once the refurb is finished.
