Lake Buena Vista, Orlando

Virgin rating

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.

We spent 5 nights in a 2 bedroom Villa at Caribe Royale. This villa was excellent for my family, especially having the 2 separate full baths and the washing machine/dryer utility-room en suite. We were able to take care of a three generation family, including a person with mobility issues. Housekeeping was very attentive to cleaning our entire space - there were plenty of towels, and they even wiped down the kitchen counter and unloaded the dishwasher (which was unexpected and wonderful as a mom feeding breakfast to teens). We appreciated the ability to have a ride-share driver come through the gate and back to our villa building to pick us up. The main pool had a great waterfall and slide, which my son rated more highly than a comparably priced theme park resort where we also stayed. The staff at the pool was very friendly, and helpful to me with a disabled family member. The separate villa pool and the balcony we had overlooking it were wonderful. Overall, we enjoyed this place, and would like to come back. I recommend this to families, or anyone who wants a place to stay that is more than just an isolated bedroom! Read less

My husband, daughter and I stayed for two weeks during the end of April/beginning of May while he had a conference. The resort is clean with plenty of amenities to keep us entertained. Most notably the staff are incredibly friendly and attentive, especially the evening pool attendant Steven. He is always upbeat, kind and genuinely enjoys his job. He was fantastic every single day and made our stay that much more comfortable. We would absolutely recommend the Caribe to our friends and family. Read less

This is our second and last time staying at the Caribe. Our hotel room flooded from under the floor, the tiles fell off the wall in the shower. There was zero compensation, zero assistance moving, and it only would have taken an apology. We didn’t get that either. The prices of the food is laughable. 100$ for three orders of chicken wings and two… Read more
This is our second and last time staying at the Caribe. Our hotel room flooded from under the floor, the tiles fell off the wall in the shower. There was zero compensation, zero assistance moving, and it only would have taken an apology. We didn’t get that either. The prices of the food is laughable. 100$ for three orders of chicken wings and two sodas and one beer?! Then, they gave themselves a 15$ tip. I’m not sure why..they never came back after we got our food, which was cold. I had to go find help to get a box, help to get the check. I’m not sure where their minds are at when they set prices and automatic gratuity. At least provide decent service if you’re going to tip yourself. They also charged different prices for parking to different people in our group. Some paid 29$ to park themselves, and some paid 15$. The 100$ a day for incidentals that they charge UPFRONT is wild. I know they are collecting millions and gaining interest on MY money and then taking 3-5 days to return it. I have never stayed anywhere and been charged a “just in case fee”. I cannot roll my eyes hard enough. Your rooms are trash, you’re not that fancy…. Read less
