Our minibar was on our balcony along with the tea/coffee making facility. Each day you are left an order form where you can request which drinks you would like. Just tick the box and you will be delivered full-sized bottles of spirits. If you want wine, hand-write this on the form and if you are lucky you would get a bottle, but not always. But a quick call to room service solved this problem!
All the rooms at CSS have minibars. I never really checked anything extra. We were happy with what we had. I mostly drank the water and/or soda. I do not drink coffee, so diet pepsi is my caffiene in the morning. I had plenty to drink during the day, or before I got to the room, so I did not need anything else. My husband is a rum drinker, and he can outdrink me quite easily. He did drink in the room, but when it got low, they replenished the bottle. Had no problem.
We loved the mini bar and room service at CSS. The bottled Pepsi was great and kept me going all week. The large bottles were a big surprise when we ckd off what we wanted. Rum whiskey vodka and gin all you want and need.
Most days our mini bar attendant would not sway from the amounts on the list. We had to stock our own extra waters from the bars. And, actually, one day he took the extra waters OUT OF our fridge (only happended that one time, though) !! So, we went & got more from the Balloon Bar after dinner.
We were at CSS in August, the Mini bar was great and filled daily. However if we still needed more than what the minibar held, all we had to do was simply called the 24hr room service, which CSS has; and in minutes it was at our door. We wanted for nothing.
My husband is a Crown Royal drinker. Do they have premium brands such as that? And can we get a certain brand put in our rooms? Certain brands of liquor trigger a migraine for him so he's pretty strict on what he drinks.
Thanks for any info...
They used to have a much more open policy about the mini bar, but I think part of the reason they tend to limit it now has to do with inventory. They don't have very many rooms, and there are lots of bars to stock. I can't imagine people would be happy if they were unable to get water from the bar, but every room had multiple bottles stashed largely unused in the fridge.
If you don't get what you want in the fridge, just ask politely at a bar on your way back to your room or call down to room service. You could also ask the mini-bar stock guy if you see him near your room during the day. They do tend to be quite accomodating, as long as you're reasonable and polite.
When we were there,last Feb 10,we had the same room type.
We would ask the guy who stocked the mimi bar when we saw him in the morning, and he would bring me what ever I ask for(within reason),
And if you need more water ,well we ask at the bars for water and put them in you room throught the day . SO, " No Problem"
