CSA - Beachfront Suite questions?
Hi CSA experts,
I will be going to CSA this summer and have booked a Beachfront Suite. Does this room type have any outside sitting area at all? I have seen some pictures of beachfront rooms with two chairs on a deck (ie. no hammock or couch)....are these the beachfront suites? I am really hoping to have at least two chairs outside. Or do I need to upgrade to a Beachfront Verandah Suite or Premier Beachfront Suite for this?
Also, do the regular Beachfront Suites have air conditioning? I have seen mixed messages about this.
Final question, are all beachfront suites on the main floor? Thank you!

Though not an expert, with only 2 visits to CSA, but having stayed in a Beachfront and Premier suite we'll try to ansower your questions. Beachfront Suites have a sitting area on a porch/balcony with a couple chairs and table. Premier Beachfront Suites have a larger sitting area with wrap-around porch and lounger(s). Yes, Beachfront Suites do have air conditioning. Our belief is that they can be on 1st or 2nd floors. We're sure someone will correct us if we're wrong.
Have an awesome visit!

We always get the Beachfront Verandah Suite. There is air conditioning and these rooms are 3 floors. We like the 1st floor for easy access to beach and anywhere else. They started giving a key to the verandah door, so we don't have to go around to the room door.
There is usually one chair on the verandah, and we either have them bring us another chair or get one ourselves.
We have never stayed in the Beachfront Verandah room so I can't comment on those. I do believe that every room has AC.

We have stayed in Beachfront Verandah suites before. On the first floor SOME of the rooms have room to sit in front on a lounge chair. They al have AC. The buildings have three floors. The "premier" suites are set back a little from the beach and sand. They do have a very large patio or deck. We prefer the beach front verandah suites because they are closer to the beach and water. We have styed in both and also some of the other catagorys. What ever you decide on you will have a fantastic time at our favorite resort. Check the map sites on Couples, and you may have a better idea of what to expect.

We've stayed in Atrium and BFVS. The BFVS do have a nice verandah or porch area, and have A/C to help you re-solidify after melting out by the beach all day. We really really really enjoy an early morning breakfast delivery. So peaceful and it just is one aspect of what makes the verandah a special spot for us. At the end of the day, you can't really go wrong with any room catagory - you're still at CSA and all that comes with it.

We stayed in a beachfront suite this Jan. The regular beachfront suite can be on the first or second floor. There are 12 of them total, 3 buildings with 4 units, 2 upstairs and 2 down. They have air conditioning but no glass in the windows. The windows have screens and louvres but if you want it real cool, close the louvres and turn on the AC and it was fine. The beachfront suite had a large outdoor sitting area. It had a built in couch thing and one lounge chair, and a built in table. I will admit, I wasn't crazy about the patio furniture and would have liked 2 chairs and small table much better. Our room was first floor and we asked for a key for our front door. It was convenient to come off the beach that way.
Hope this helps!

Funlover, whichever room catagory you choose, they all have a veranda of some sort. The premier beachfront suites are probably the largest and the rest are large enough for two people to enjoy drinks or breakfast.
