Definitely gone from CN. Also the lotion is in a dispenser on the wall and is definitely not the same as they use to have in the little bottle. It's those little things you get use to that are gone now.
The aloe seems to be what was removed when they went to the dispensers on the wall. I really missed it in December too. But, I am sure in order to keep prices as they have been, some changes had to be made. As long as we have the great room and service along with the beach and sun, I am happy to go "home" whenever we can.
Not sure if you are suppose to do this but, there are some plants growing outside at CN that are aloe plants. We have seen this used and it works great. We grow this same plant in our house. It grows back very fast and is good for the plant to be pruned. It is also a clear gel.
I guess it all depends on availability. Maybe they were just using up what they had left when we were there in Oct. 2010. There was no aloe in the dispenser on the wall then and we still had the tubes. I thought it was great that they were keeping it that way because you could bring it out to the beach in your bag. It was the same bottle and clear gel as when we were there in April, 2010. I guess we will bring some with us next time just to be on the safe side.
We also were at CN in April in a suite and they did not have aloe. Fortunately, we knew that they no longer supplied it from reading the message board before going. My wife brought the Couples aloe she took home from CSA last year.
