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.

Overall the resort was comfortable. The rooms are themed and the building complexes named after Caribbean islands (Trindad, Martinique, etc.). The beds are a bit on the small side and the resort is fairly spread out. There is access to the Skyliner gondola and the park busses. The Skyliner can take you to Epcot and Hollywood Studios; the busses to Magic Kingdom. Get in line very early for park transportation- at least an hour- as lines get long quickly. You get a small discount if you decline daily linen service. Food is available in the main Port Royal building. You can also have food delivered from 3rd party vendors (Grub hub; Amazon Prime, etc.) Be advised- due to COVID, Disney enforces strict health guidelines: Limited occupancy on busses, physical distancing, facial coverings to be worn at all times, unless eating while seated. Failure to comply with their rules will result in you being removed from the parks. It's still Disney, but it requires a bit of adjustment. Read less

Worst trip ever! Don’t spend your money here. We did... (spent thousands) and the entire experience was awful.

Worst trip ever! Don’t spend your money here. We did... (spent thousands) and the entire experience was awful. Spending the majority of our “family time” trying to book experiences and dining on the Disney app. Hoodwinked with a two day pass offer that expired in a month while we told we could use through the end of the year. $80 Breakfasts, $5 cups of hot water. Two missed busses due to Covid spacing. A dining reservation to TRex, we made on the Useless App that wasn’t there when we finally arrived (still on time). Disney got me once. NEVER AGAIN! You’ve been warned. Read less

We chose this hotel for the great rate offered to Florida residents. The staff was all super friendly. Great transportation system includIng walking distance to the new skyliner. Because of Covid, there was limited food services available. We ordered from the Marketplace on our cellphones . Order was fast but was not applied to our disney bands which caused a problem since we had a credit on our bands. A problem we encountered during our stay was that the air-conditioner did not cool fast enough . We set the temperature at 70 and After being in the room for 5 hours the room was a warm 78. This problem was quickly addressed by the general manager and we were compensated and offered for it to be fixed or swiitch to a different room. Since we were settled in we chose to keep the room and have it fixed. We should have switched for NEW ROOM, because we had the pirate themed room and the beds were the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. First of all the pirate themed beds is full size bed, not queen. The mattress was only a few inches thick and was place on a hard board. It felt like I was sleeping on a plank! I would stay at this resort in the future, but not in the Pirate Ship themed rooms. Read less

We booked this hotel on a Thurs and arrived on Saturday. I believe it might be the only moderate resort open right now. We've never stayed here, so were looking forward to a new experience. We were in the Jamaica section, building 44. The transportation here is a plus, or at least it worked out great for us. We were a minute walk away from our bus stop, and a short walk to the skyliner for HS and Epcot. The Skyliner has been amazing, so glad they added this option. The walk to the lobby wasn't too bad, but long enough. Food options were disappointing. For such a large resort, you'd think there'd be more. I understand it's Covid, but even on a regular basis. We did enjoy wings at the pool bar (very good), and they did have mobile ordering for the food court (we did not try), but Sebastian's was not open. I don't think they have any other options, even when they are fully open? The room was clean, beds and pillows were comfy. Housekeeping came in twice during our 5 night stay to replenish towels and soap. Our bed was never made. I'm Ok with that. On our last day we decided we would like to stay one day longer. Hubby went to the lobby to check on it and they told us we would HAVE to move to another room. We weren't going to waste a day with that mess so it was a no go. Were they that full or did we get the wrong cast member? As moderates go, we do prefer Coronado or the French Quarter, but we did enjoy our stay. Read less

I stayed here in September 2018, and then again in August 2020. When we visited in 2018, this resort was going through some major renovations, and at that time I would not have recommended it.

I stayed here in September 2018, and then again in August 2020. When we visited in 2018, this resort was going through some major renovations, and at that time I would not have recommended it. NOW, however, it's GREAT!!! They are taking all the proper precautions for COVID-19, masks, hand sanitizers, social distancing, loved it! We loved the new lobby with the gift shop and food court connected. The food was ordered through mobile ordering, fast and convenient. The rooms we stayed in were in the Jamaica section, closest to the Skyliner and that was convenient. Make sure to recommend this!!! Just outside our door and a short walk to get on the Skyliner, which takes you to Hollywood Studios or Epcot. Rooms were as expected, which we do love the consistency. The housekeeping came in every other day, which was communicated well. Disney really does do a nice job, and this resort is no exception. Read less
