Mobile Coronado Springs room requests

Just wondered location of our room in this resort and if this meant we will be in the Gran Destino tower?

We have a preferred room and my understanding is that these were the Casistas but given these are the only options:

-Highest floor
-Upper floor
-Near transportation


In other resorts I've had more options than this.

Anyone know as I'm also aware the Casistas are 3 floors so the options would line up with the top floor, middle floor and ground floor.

Thanks in advance

I cant think of anywhere you wouldn't be? They all are close to transport. High room , so upper room. I'd be more concerned for water view.

I think tower rooms are called tower rooms?

The tower rooms are under a separate category, we had preferred rooms at Christmas and were in Casitas 3 on the second floor, there are lifts, in the blocks.

Tower rooms are a separate category, as are Casitas 1, 2 and 3 which make the 'preferred category. All other buildings have standard rooms (as well as water and garden view rooms). The resort has 4 bus stops so any location can be close to transportation, and obviously any building has an upper floor... if only the second of two floors

I've sent a request and was allocated a random room, but we were upgraded at check in to Casitas 2. It wasn't a top floor which I would have preferred, but it was a lovely room in a decent location. Some people have success with their room request, others less so. It's a very large resort and I imagine it's impossible for them to always meet room requirements.

I wouldnt rely on any room choices in online check in as I think this has been disabled.

There is always a chance you end up being moved into a tower room, but no these options do not indicate that you are in the tower at this time. If you were in a tower room, it would be stated under room type.

I have a tower room booked for December, the room type states Tower room - water view. The check in options are between none and upper floor.

you have booked a preferred room, so unless you're upgraded to tower, you will be in one of the 3 first Casitas buidings.

Anyone know as I'm also aware the Casistas are 3 floors so the options would line up with the top floor, middle floor and ground floor.
casitas can have between 3 and 5 floors depending on the building

we got ranchoes when we requested casitas 5 but on check in he moved us to casitas 5.

I think at checkin you will get what you want.

Check out the bus stops - you might want to be closer to the bus stop in casitas 3 than the food in casitas 1...
