Couple of Couples vets but newbies to CSA...can anyone breakdown room/bldgs?
We are about to book CSA for our 6th Couples trip...we have only visited CSA briefly on a trading places day, but have decided that for this trip(our 10 year anniversary) we want to try CSA for a trip, even though it may be a little less lively than our beloved CN(IMHO)...we LOVE walking on Long Bay, and want to be immersed in each other like newlyweds again, and feel like this will suit us better this time. We always book lowest category...and will continue to....but this time will be there in late July(our anniversary) when the rates (and possibly the guest capacity) is lower....At CN we have our favorite building(s) and have usually been accomodated when requesting them...can anyone kind of break down where we might want to be ...in terms of avoiding road noise ...or even if we can catch a lucky break at an upgrade? garden is fine, beachside/front is better...but what/where are the buildings in those terms?...thanks, Patrick

All of the Greathouse rooms are, well, in the greathouse (building 46 above patios). The Beachfront, ocean and new garden verandahs are all on the new (south) side of the resort in the 3 story buildings that are 4 rooms wide near the greathouse and swim-up bar. Premier Beachfront Suites, Atriums and the older garden suites make up the older (north) side of the resort. The PBS are right up front with the atriums comprising the two rows right behind them and both have no TV's, the large patios and shutters all around. The older garden suites line up behind the atriums closer to the road. All of the blocks on the old side have no more than 4 rooms per, there are a few beachfront blocks that have 3 per, with one of them being an oddball room classified as an atrium.

I like to be towards the middle of the resort by the hot tub. We were in a Garden Verandah Suite and had a view of the sea. The road noise really didn't bother us, but some of our friends staying in a GVS by the Greathouse said it was really bad over there. It probably depends on how much foliage is in between.
If you don't have to have a TV, maybe go for an Atrium (especially if this is for reconnection). If you go this route make sure you don't have an Atrium that is by the Palms. Again, try to get as close to the middle of the property as possible. Good luck deciding.
