We are preparing for our 7th visit to CSA in a couple of weeks! We always book an Atrium Suite....they are our favorite room category! Love having those hammocks on the verandahs! You will enjoy your trip no matter which you choose...can't go wrong at CSA!
I have never stayed in the beachfront verandah, but I really loved staying in the atrium suite. We were not more than 30 seconds from the beach and loved having the hammock on the porch to relax in when not on the beach.
They are both great choices. It depends on how close to the beach that you want to be. We've tried the bfvs and loved the first floor easy access to the beach. Here's our first floor view from 4122. Good luck deciding!
We have never stayed in a Beachfront Veranda Room but I can't imagine that it could possibly be better than an Atrium. We absolutely love the Atrium rooms. We only stayed at CSA one year..our first..... did the tour of all four resorts.... but if and when we return the Atrium will be the room of choice... love the hammock!! Jeff
Atrium is the only option for us. Seemingly less traffic, the style of the room and the hammock are perfect for us. Remember though that the Atriums do not have a TV. If you're not willing to completely unplug from the world, that might be the tipping point for you.
Either way, you'll enjoy your stay!
We have stayed in both and while the hammocks rock, sleeping to the sound of the ocean is way better. Get the beachfront and open the windows and doors while you sleep! I vote for beachfront if you can swing it!
