Virgin rating

The hotel

Bringing the Caribbean to Florida, you can expect endless fun at Disney's Caribbean Beach. Split into 5 islands: Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad and Aruba, you can expect loads of pools to relax in, and so much for little ones to do. Head to one of the lively markets, chill at the beach surrounding the lake, or spend a few hours at the Fuentes del Morro pool, with slides galore, water cannons, and a shipwreck play area. Heading to the parks couldn't be easier - jump aboard the Skyliner gondola and you'll be in Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios in no time!

The resort was very nice. We we were in Aruba close to 2 pools and the walkway to the restaurants and the main pool. We had an awesome view overlooking the lake. The room was nice however the beds weren’t very comfortable. Close to the Skyliner and buses. My only complaint is that the food at the resort was mediocre at best. Very expensive for what you get. Very limited menu. Being a Disney resort I would expect much better food and more variety. Read less

We are frequent visitors to WDW and have stayed at most of the on-site resorts. Our last stay at this property was before the Skyliner was built. Every Disney resort has its pros and cons. Pros: Bus service to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom and Skyliner service to Hollywood Studios and EPCOT (most moderates have only bus transportation). Multiple dining options on site. Multiple pools, including an active pool with music, slides, etc. near the lobby and multiple quiet pools at each village. Beautiful landscaping and a great tropical atmosphere. Also access to nearby resorts including Pop Century, Art of Animation and Rivera. Cons: This resort is enormous and depending on which building you are assigned (and you don't get to pick), you may have a long walk to the lobby or the Skyliner. The resort has multiple bus stops and the bus may fill up before your stop or if you're the first stop you have to stop at all of the other bus stops before heading to the parks. The Skyliner may shut down for high winds or storms. The buildings don't have elevators and despite recent cosmetic updates the hotel rooms are "old school" rooms with outdated tub/showers and radiator style A/C units that are loud when operating. Overall, we were happy with our stay at this resort. We were lucky to get a room in Aruba and often used the Rivera Skyliner and bus stations. The cast members were excellent!! Everyone we encountered went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The Bell Services staff were especially helpful with helping us figure out what happened to our missing grocery order. I would recommend this resort as a good choice in the moderate category. Read less

Beautiful resort. Enjoyed the pool and walking around. The food court had tasty meals but the menu could be a little more varied. All staff were very friendly. Having the Skyliner made visits to Epcot and Hollywood easy and quick. The bus service to the other parks was great as well. Second time staying at this resort,

Convenient to Disney, love the skyliner . Rooms and beds were terrific, even have a mini Murphy bed. The folks here are really nice and helpful. This is worth the extra cost. Regular pool close to our room and a huge features type pool at the main building….included cool slides and kiddy area.

This was our first time staying on Disney property and based on our stay at CBR we are big fans! We stayed in an Under the Sea 5th sleeper room in building 37 in Trinidad, which we requested, and found it to be clean, light, comfortable and big enough for our family to stay in for 7 nights. Our 7 year old daughter loved the pull down child's bed which was the perfect size for her! Our 9 year old son slept in the pull down Murphy bed which worked really well for us as it transformed into a sofa by day, making the room feel bigger. There was plenty of drawers for clothes, although not much hanging space. There is also a large counter area which was helpful for making drinks and breakfast in the room. The air conditioner unit was pretty noisy, so at night we just used the overhead fan which was fine for April. Housekeeping was every other day. The Skyliner really is amazing, and our room was only a few minutes walk from this. There is a Joffreys at the Skyliner station which was very much appreciated, especially on the rope drop mornings! We never had to wait more than a few mins for buses for MK, AK and DS, and always managed to get on straight away. The main pool area is great for families. It is well maintained, clean and has plenty of lifeguards on duty. We were always able to get sun loungers with shade. The quick serve restaurant is a little smaller than I expected for a resort so large but has a good selection of 'safe' and more adventurous options. We took a stroll up to Riviera one evening to use their quick serve and found it great to have this closeby for extra variety. Being in Trinidad it was about 8 minutes walk to the main hub for the pool and quick serve, but honestly we didn't find this to be a problem, even for the kids after a long day in the park. The scenery is so beautiful and relaxing, its just nice being on holiday! But if you're really not up for the walk there is an internal bus that can take you to the hub. We loved our week at CBR and would love to stay here again. I would absolutely recommend the Under the Sea 5th sleeper rooms for families with young kids. And finally, the cast members throughout are incredible! Read less
