Caribe Royale Orlando

Lake Buena Vista, Orlando

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 stayed here the end of Sept and I could not have been more pleased with this hotel. Not only is it in a great location, it was a very beautiful hotel and has all the extras you could ask for. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended!

My wife and 2 kids stayed in one of the Villas. Our trip was for DisneyWorld. Caribe Royale did not disappoint one bit. Kids loved the pool, movie nights on weekend, accessible good food, 10mins to DisneyWorld.

I like how close and convenient this resort is to Disney about a 10 min drive or you can take the free shuttle to get there! I also like how the room was ready early at 1pm so that was a plus! The room was clean and spacious and has lots of charging ports and I loved the rainfall shower head! I love how huge this property is lots to do here!

I have stayed here several times, and the hotel is in the process of renovating. Tower 3 is done, so try to book there. I stayed in Tower 1, which will be the last to be renovated. The rooms there are a bit dated, but I look forward to the renovation. The property itself is beautiful.
