Just wanted to right a little report about our trip…
November 4-7, 2009 @ Caribbean Beach Resort
Main Purpose: Food & Wine Festival
Wednesday November 4th…
This is a first time in a long time that we stayed at Caribbean Beach Resort. I really love it there and they have really done a great job with the pool. We had a great room in building 51 that was directly in front of the bridge to Old Port Royale. It was only a little walk and the atmosphere was delightful. The resort is huge, so you need to know where you want to be before they assign you a room. Luckily we arrived early in the morning and were able to pick our room from rooms available at that time. The resort seemed pretty empty.
We decided to head to the Polynesian to see if the Sushi bar was open for lunch and it wasn’t so we ended up at Captain Cooks(?) for a CS lunch. DH and I both ordered a flat bread pizza and I would never order it again. It was just blah. I think the salad or stir fry option would have been better. After lunch, we walked around the Poly and then decided to head back to CBR for a nap. The kids were cranky and we were tired.
After a nap, we headed to the Beach Club in hopes to get a spot at Cape May for dinner. I originally had an ADR for Kouzzina, but I haven’t heard the greatest reviews and I knew Cape May would be a safe bet, plus the crab legs are back!!
To our surprise, our family was named Family of the Day and we got to open the place!! It was really cute. They announced us and the kids got to ring bells and our waiter Oskar really treated us like royalty! We had a little table with a real tablecloth (not the usual paper) off to the side in our own little room. They gave us pins, a certificate, a card signed by characters and the kids received a glow cube and a Tinkerbell light clip.
We decided to call it a night- we are all still screwed up from this time change and the kids were not behaving!! :eek:
