Not only have Disney managed to bring the ambience of the Caribbean to Florida, they've brought the beaches too! This resort is split into 6 Caribbean islands, each with its own pool and stretch of white sandy beach. Whilst mums and dads soak up the sun, the kids can climb, slide and play to their hearts content at Caribbean Cay, a small island complete with picnic tables, a nature trail, hammocks and a playground. There are also playgrounds on the beaches of Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad, ensuring everyone is kept happy! Colonial-style buildings and swaying palm trees add to the vibe, as do lush gardens and the distant sound of steel drums. There are bikes for hire, nature trails, a lively shopping bazaar, food court and table-service dining - making this the perfect all-round family destination.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
My boyfriend and I recently stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms in Aruba which make it feel like it should be in a deluxe resort. The room was beautiful and the beds were super comfy and we... Read more both slept very well. As with every hotel, yes we did hear noise from people walking past with their children but this is to be expected.You are out at the parks all day so that didn't affect us that much at all. The resort is massive but as a walker and in my 20's I did not find this a problem and if you stay in Aruba then you can walk along the stunning beach and cross a bridge right over to the food court. This would maybe take 10 minutes. For those with kids or a buggy I can imagine this could get annoying after a few trips. We often got off the bus at night at the food court and then walked back to our rooms after which worked a bit better. The food was fine but as a fussy eater I found it difficult to find things to eat every night. I wouldn't rely on this every night but it was fine if you were tired and just wanted to grab something. The park is pretty close to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios but took a wee bit longer to get to Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom. For Magic Kingdom we would go to EPCOT and then get the monorail as this would be quicker. and more fun!! At the end of our trip we were automatically checked out which was nice and we simply hopped on the magical express and at the airport within 30 minutes. Unfortunately we didn't use the pool or any of the kids activities but they looked fun when we walked past, The pool is beautiful! Overall, the hotel was good, better than what we expected and yes I would stay here again. Read less
my entire disney trip, which started wonderfully was completely ruined and jaded when 3 lifeguards watched my struggling 6 year old in the pool, without making a single attempt to rescue her! luckily... Read more another guest pulled her out in time. one of them even came up and said he saw what was happening but legally he couldnt jump in the pool. WHAT?! you are a lifeguard! not only that, the water was just over 4ft deep!!! it was over my daughters head, but would have been up to your waist! you could have carried her out, saved her and my family the trauma of her nearly drowning. when management was questioned, their actions were justified by it being a legal technicality on their license that says they cants attempt a rescue without a floaty. WHY would your lifeguards be near the pool if not equipped to save someone?! What legal technicality would you throw at me if my child needed medical attention or worse, died?! other than that awful experience, the pirate room, which i paid a lot for, was cute but extremely small, and the bathtub had stains. The "water view" which was extra, was minimal and mostly a view of the shrub. The food court was mediocre without anything to write home about or anything must have. I will say that their gift shop was great and the staff in there was awesome. It was easier to find what we wanted in there than it was at the Emporium in Magic Kingdom. So while I will NEVER stay here again, nor will I EVER recommend this place to anyone, at least I got some nice souvenirs and a need for an anxiety script. Read less
Reading reviews I chose to stay in Jamaica - which turned out to be perfect. Rooms were beautifully renovated and close to the bridge to get to breakfast. I would stay again in a heartbeat... Read more . Everybody was so helpful and nice. No problems with the buses, they were very frequent. I did do the online check in before we got there which was great. Housekeeping came every day. Landscaping was so well kept, it amazed us for such a large property. We had so much fun relaxing in the hammocks and enjoying the smaller pool - our stay was perfect. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Read less
We stayed at Caribbean Beach from October 12th to October 18th. We usually stay at Port Orleans Riverside but wanted to try something different. From the moment we checked in things went perfectly... Read more . Unlike last year I did not have to wait forever to check in and the woman working greeted us with a smile and was very helpful. Our room was not available upon check in, we had taken advantage of the online check in and I had indicated two building preferences. I indicated our wish to look for an available room and within 5 minutes we were moved to our second choice, Aruba. The room was recently remodeled. The room had two queen size beds, and a pull down bed. The television set which was mounted on the wall opening up counter space. There was ample storage and a good sized refrigerator. The bathroom sink area had storage under the sinks and sliding doors separating it from the sleeping area. Housekeeping did not get to our room till late one day, this only happened once, we got back from one of the parks around 1:30 and instead of just skipping over us or intruding they called us and asked when it would be a good time for them to stop by and if we needed anything in the meantime. We are not high maintenance, and clean up after ourselves for the most part so we only asked for our beds to be made up and new towels to be brought. I let them know we would be at the pool for the next half hour and when we came back everything had been done as requested. We were a short distance from the food court and we liked the nice stroll over the bridge in the early morning. I prefer to stay a short distance away to avoid the regular noise you get from the food court and large pool that's inevitable when staying at a resort. The grounds were well kept and the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was a bit predictable and bland but since we only ate breakfast there I have no real complaint. I would recommend eating outside, there are plenty of tables near the pool area and it's much more comfortable and quiet. We did not eat at the sit down restaurant during our stay. The prices were reasonable for the resort in my opinion. The bus service is what it is, and actually better here then I had at Riverside last year. We boarded in Jamaica since we closer to that location. Jamaica was the first stop for pick up by the buses since it is right next to the back gate, and the only time I had trouble boarding was on the night we went to the Halloween party. You will see more buses for EPCOT and Hollywood Studios come through since the resort is right next to those parks. Overall our stay was excellent. The resort was quiet, well maintained, and I would return without question. Read less
Not sure why there are so many negative reviews. The resort is beautiful and the room was lovely! We stayed in Martinique which was close to Port Royale and the bus stop. Enjoyed the quiet pool, and... Read more only used the main pool one time which was really cool. Cleaning staff was fab as was those that I interacted with in the food court and gift shop. This is our 5th trip to Disney World in 4 years and our 5th resort. We are Disney fans and have already booked our 2015 trip. Thank you Caribbean Beach Resort! Read less
