Hi Adria. Thank you for the helpful info. I have read many of your posts regarding Columbus Isle and appreciate all the info you have provided. We have booked for next March 24-31. We decided on a club room with ocean view so I assume this will be the second floor of the buildings with a nice view but not right up next to the ocean. I plan to request rooms 422-435 so we can be mid way between the main area and scuba as we plan to dive twice a day for at least 2-3 days of our stay. Does this sound like a good plan? How is the weather in late March? can't wait!
I replied separately about the weather in March. As far as the room locations, the section you're planning to request is fine. There's a sidewalk along the beach area that makes it easy to walk anywhere - much more a direct route than the "inside passage" (as we call it) of the meandering walkways in front of the doors to the rooms. You'll learn your way around quickly; it's easy to find whatever you want.
One thing you might want to keep in the back of your mind is that I believe there is a plan to start renovating the rooms at Columbus Isle during the time the Village will be closed between the end of August & mid/late October this year. From what I've heard these will be primarily cosmetic upgrades to the bathrooms, etc., not major reconfigurations of the interior spaces. But it may be that the room categories (& corresponding prices) will change again after some or all of the rooms have been upgraded. So if you're making your requests now for next March, I don't know if the same rooms will be in the same categories by March. But I wouldn't worry about it; the buildings will be in the same places and the rooms will have the same view. Whether your room will have a renovated bathroom or not by next March shouldn't make all that much difference in terms of enjoying this beautiful Village.....
