Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

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 five Caribbean islands, each with its own pool and stretch of white sandy beach. 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, jogging trails, a lively shopping bazaar, food court and table-service dining - making this the perfect all-round family destination.
++ Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is undergoing refurbishment projects until further notice. Please refer to the additional information section below for more details. ++

We stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort while on a multi-generational family trip. We had a three year old all the way to an eighty-nine year old and we all loved it. The staff was amazing and answered all our questions and checked to make sure we were comfortable. The food court area was well laid out and we appreciated the online ordering as it saved us time in the mornings when we were headed to the parks. We all stayed in the Bahama area which was right behind a bus stop and the main building was a 2-5 minute walk. Our rooms looked out on the water and the grounds were well kept. The main pool with its slides was a great place to relax and the smaller area pool was very close to us as well. The rooms were spacious and had sliding doors so that the double sink area was separated from the bedroom area and the tub/shower/toilet was separated from the sink area by another door. We also had an adjoining room with our daughter’s family which was perfect for us and our young granddaughter. My 89 year old mother appreciated that they could accommodate her in a handicap room so that she had the bars in the bathroom etc. I and the rest of my family were very happy here and we would all stay here again. It was also recently renovated and it will have the new Skyliner access to the parks soon. Read less

On our most recent visit we took the whole family 11 people in 3 rooms. My husband and i had taken all the Grandkids one at a time but now decieded to take all incuding the parents. I bragged on the Cast personal and how they were attentive and kept the grounds clean and did special things in the rooms - shaped towels into mickey sat stuffed animals in cute ways in room etc- However this time that didn't happen, we always tipped and did this time in all rooms. We also saw cast members leave trash on the sidewalks and grounds. I tried to tell my family that this was not the usual but it happened the whole time there 4 days. They were not rude and did replace light bulb etc But i had come to expect a higher level of excellence at the Disney resorts over non Disney Resorts. Please don't misunderstand we still had a great time as we always do at Disney and everything was nice. I would still go back only wouldn't expect the same service we have received in the past. The Caribbean Resort is one of our favorites! And would recommend it to anyone. The Pirate Beds were surprisingly comfortable and fun. Food at the new food court was also good. Read less

We loved our stay. We were in bldg 41 in Jamaica. Very close to the entrance to the resort and our room was close to the area you can pull your car up to unload. Not too far from lobby but if you don’t have your own car to drive it is a 5 min walk or so. Beds and pillows were amazing!!!! A couple buildings over (not far) is a smaller pool and… Read more

Not too far from lobby but if you don’t have your own car to drive it is a 5 min walk or so. Beds and pillows were amazing!!!! A couple buildings over (not far) is a smaller pool and laundry facilities. Older kids liked that pool instead of crowded big pool at lobby. Close to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Only a couple negatives-was not very “Disney” as other Disney resorts. It is Caribbean themed of course. But no towel animals on bed, or Disney stuff in room at all. Really missed the towel Mickey! Lol Also, we called the night before and wanted late check out and they didn’t let us. I know we waited too long but that was disappointing as in our past experiences Disney ALWAYS accommodates! Place was “Disney clean” as expected. But for real, really just want to take that awesome bed home! Read less

We went for the weekend for my daughters birthday and had a wonderful time. The only little thing I had an issue with was housekeeping, at the end of the day they still had not been to our room and finally someone called to see if we wanted someone to come out and someone finally did. We had to stop a random housekeeper during the day to ask for clean towel so we could shower and go on with our evening reservations. All of the staff at check in and in the lobby were terrific to deal with. Read less
