Caribe Royale Orlando

Orlando, Florida

The hotel

Full to the brim with fun for all the family, the Caribe Royale is a spectacular resort in the theme park capital of the world. Just a short drive from some of Orlando’s best parks, you can be zipping around those rollercoasters before you know it. But it’s not all about the location. You’ve got pool complete with water slide, plus one for the kids. You have a choice of where to eat and drink all throughout the day and night, or opt for a night-in and enjoy room service in the comfort of your home-from-home. And when the nights roll in, you can put your feet up and watch some movies under the stars.

Colleague and I stayed one night this week while on business in the area. Were impressed with the sanitation measures in place, the overall cleanliness and guidelines in place to maintain safety standards, and the staff were hospitable and available when needed. Steven Brown, a pool attendant, was kind to give us directions to what was open onsite when asked. Also, the pool bar had a delicious Mimosa beer that we really enjoyed! Would stay again in the future. Read less

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was perfect. Was close to the parks, was clean, the pool was great and there isn’t anything bad we can say about it. One gentleman was very kind and went out of his way to introduce himself at the pool and compliment our children along with bringing us towels, his name was Steven Brown. Everyone was friendly and… Read more

To start this place bends over backwards to make sure you are being taken care of. The facilities and rooms are very well taken care of. The pool area is top tier when it comes to being family oriented. (Mr Steven Brown) was very helpful to our family while we stayed the week.

Check-in was smooth, with no issues. Friendly, good directions, map, etc. However, for the first time in my life, I was pulled aside with some sales proposition, promising a 7-day vacation. Tacky. The room screams, welcome to the 1970’s. Office like doors in the room, makes it feel like they merged two rooms at some time. The sink (only 1… Read more
Check-in was smooth, with no issues. Friendly, good directions, map, etc. However, for the first time in my life, I was pulled aside with some sales proposition, promising a 7-day vacation. Tacky. The room screams, welcome to the 1970’s. Office like doors in the room, makes it feel like they merged two rooms at some time. The sink (only 1 in a suite?) is not with the shower and toilet, and in the hallway. This is inconvenient. Bathroom is small and doesn’t have a suite feel. All browns, greens and yellows that really need to be updated. Furniture, lighting and decor also very dated. While the high ceiling seems nice, there’s an echo. Hallway echoes even worse. Bed is old, uncomfortable and squeaky. Have to turn up the temperature to 76 or the room is cold. Restaurant was meh. Good COVID precautions, which is appreciated. Read less
