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.

Jamaica building 41. Toilet must be flushed 2-3 times for solid waste or paper. Toilet roll is falling off the wall.

The resort is huge but it is easy to walk around. We were in the Aruba building and were able to easily hop on the Skyliner gondolas to transport to Epcot from the Riviera resort.

The resort is huge but it is easy to walk around. We were in the Aruba building and were able to easily hop on the Skyliner gondolas to transport to Epcot from the Riviera resort. You can also access them from another point in the resort but for us this was closer. Our room was clean and decently sized for a family of 5. There were 2 queen sized beds and a pull down bed for kids, which was a big hit. They thought it was so exciting to take turns on it. There were movies on a giant screen shown at night on the island and there are several pools and water activities to choose from. Even in the winter the water is warm enough to enjoy. The pool by the restaurants with the pirate motif was the favorite. We were able to do quick dining through the app at the restaurant on site which worked out super well. Everything seemed to be well cleaned and sanitized. This was a nice resort to stay at, the island themes are well done. Read less

I am a huge Disney fan. This is our 5th trip to Disney World. Resorts were limited due to Covid, so we chose Caribbean Beach due to the Skyliner access. That was great! We loved being able to hop on skyliner to Hollywood Studios and Epcot and had easy access to the bus for other destinations. The majority of the staff were friendly and helpful as expected. We were in the Aruba area, which was great because it was near Skyliner and also near Riviera, which had good breakfasts. The room was horrible. It was a tiny dark cave with barely enough room for the two queen beds. The furniture was dark and worn and very few of the outlets worked. The AC/Heater unit banged loudly when on for more than 5 minutes, but we lucked out with weather and were able to leave it off (thankfully because maintenance checked it out and didn't have parts to repair it). There is one tiny window under an overrhang with a view of cement and no sunlight. I thought paying the extra to upgrade from the "value" hotels would be worth it, but I can't imagine they have smaller, darker rooms than the one we stayed in. I haven't stayed in Art of Animation or Pop Century - but they are cheaper and also have Skyliner access, so maybe try those? Read less

My family stayed here during the holidays and stayed in the Martinique rooms. During our stay we had minor issues. Our biggest problem was how the staff represented themselves. Several times we saw housekeepers without a mask and there direct managers without a mask. A few who looked like a manager because they wore plain clothes with the name tags Brian and Maria, my family saw several times at front desk and Martinique areas without a mask. From a family that has lost people to covid this unacceptable and from disney is advertising completely against their policy. That bring in to question whether they are fully "sanitizing" the rooms. It made for a bad experience. Read less

Disney in a pandemic I’m from up north and had been working in Healthcare for nine months with out one vacation day After doing research I found disney was doing a lot to protect their guest from getting Covid 19 We traveled in American airline from philadelphia. We left at 6:30am. This was great. The flight was clean and very little people on flight or in airport. American did a great job of keeping everyone safe. I should say our flight back was at 5:37pm. It was packed flight. I was wrong. They aren’t keeping people 6 feet apart or even reminding people to wear a mask that cover their nose. I should also say that I knew the risks I was taking by flying. We arrived at caribbean beach report. This is the only moderate property currently allowing guests to visit. We did in line check in and by noon we were unpacked and at the pool. The room was very clean lots of towels. Remote was covered with a baggie. We stayed in a 5 person room. This was great for 4 people. The shower and toilet are in one room with a door. The vanity was also separated by a barn doors. This allowed for one person to shower while another person to get ready. The 5 person sleeper works for a below 5’4 person weighing under 90 pounds. It was great. There a refrigerator , coffee maker and condiments in the room as well. Our wasn’t cleaned our entire stay. They do come in and take trash and dirty towels and leave clean ones. If you are used to that. They make no exceptions. All disney requires all the guests to wear a mask the entire time they are outside as well as rides. They have people that will kindly ask you to put your masks on. The only time you can take your masks off is while you are eating and sitting. No exceptions. We went to magic kingdom, Epcot , Hollywood studios and animal kingdom four straight days. The check your temperature prior to entrance to all areas in Disney parks and Disney Springs. The lines we waited for a ride was the new Mickey and Minnie runaway train ride. That was 45 minutes. This was amazing. You can ride all the rides in 4 hours. So much fun. What you don’t get is: No parades, fireworks, light shows, character signings, no dining plans, no hopper passes. no large groups of any sort. Each area was marked by 6 feet Markers even for rides. They also installed plexy glass walls In areas to protect their guests. After every ride and throughout the parks you will find hand sanitizer stations. They have people waking around the entire day wiping railing and door handles. They only allow a certain percentage of guest per day into a park. You need a reservations to even buy a ticket We felt very safe. With that being said we followed all the rules. Showered every evening. Kept our dirty clothes in a bag. And social distanced Pool are was one spot while you are swimming you don’t need to wear a mask. The hot tub is open as well. They keep track of how many people are there as well. We went to several Disney restaurants and the services was great. Prices are still high but we enjoyed the meals Disney Springs was also very nice. They track how people are visiting and on w they meet capacity they will hold letting anyone into that area. If you’ve never gone to Disney this would be a great time to go. If you aren’t into the above for parks go and enjoy. We love Disney and wanted to support. Now back home to self quarantine for two weeks Read less
