I think they needed to do something here. The offering at the market at YC is far superior to that at the Beach Club, even if its environment is a little more sterile. I’m looking forward to the changes!
That sounds like a huge bonus to me. The Freestyle machines are the worst.
I understand why people like them if they want a bunch of added flavors, but if you just want a regular Coke, you're out of luck. I've never once had a Coke out of a Freestyle machine that actually tasted remotely similar to how Coke typically tastes (and I've probably tried at 25-30 different locations if not more); I just skip getting a drink now if the place has Freestyle machines.
I suppose I should thank Coca-Cola for their terrible invention, though, because it really helped me stop drinking soda.
Photo update as of Thursday, August 27, 2020. Despite the "exit" sign at this door, the Beach Club resort Marketplace is closed. Here are a few photos of the temporary Marketplace at the Solarium, offering cold and hot sandwiches and other items.
