The hotel

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!

Had a good stay. We were there for only one night but the room was well maintained, clean, and all else was as expected. The front desk people were very friendly, accommodating with room requests. We were able to checking in well before 3:00 and our room was ready upon arrival at 9:00. The pool was clean and the kids had a good time on the slide. Not as good as the higher end Disney resorts but probably better than most moderate ones. The convenience of the skyliner was nice to get to Epcot and the boardwalk. Food choices for vegetarian family was challenging. I can recall much in the way of different options beyond the typical salad and pizza. Overall a good stay. Beware the resort is large and depending on your location it can be a bit of a walk to get to the main buildings. We stayed in Aruba area and were able to enjoy a quick walk to the Riviera skyliner and the main area. Read less

I originally booked Pop Century because I wanted access to the Sky Gondola. But after awhile I thought the hotel might be to juvenile for my 21 yr old so I upgraded to CBR. Everything was what I expected after reading reviews. The exterior of the hotel was beautiful. It made you feel like you were in the Carribbean. We stayed in Martinique section. I loved this section as it was close to the main hub of all things. Pool, restaurants,& store. Easy access to park bus transportation but a long walk to the sky gondola. Not bad in the morning, but on the way back when you are tired, the walk seemed endless. The room itself was ok. They did have a hairdryer, safe, soap and shampoo, one cup coffee maker, iron, refrigerator and lots of towels. Beds were very comfortable as well. The only thing we were really disappointed in was the food. I wish there was more variety. If it wasnt for the pool bar I might have dropped it another star. The pool bar was a great place to kick back and relax with a cold drink. But most of the time We ended bring food home from the parks so we could munch on that instead of ordering from the hotel. The grab n go was great but there is only so much pizza or sandwiches you can eat. I most end this with the staff. They are what make this hotel great. They go above and beyond to make you feel special. They get the highest rating of all. Would I stay here again?? Yes. Basically because of the location and convenience of the park transportation.

I was very uneasy about all the bad resort reviews while planning this trip. Yes, it is a large resort so vacationers need to do their property research. We got the building requested and our room was excellent for 5 people, AND, our room was ready by 1:30. We all thought the beds were very comfortable (queen size), and tons of nice pillows.… Read more
I was very uneasy about all the bad resort reviews while planning this trip. Yes, it is a large resort so vacationers need to do their property research. We got the building requested and our room was excellent for 5 people, AND, our room was ready by 1:30. We all thought the beds were very comfortable (queen size), and tons of nice pillows. Room was close to Cay Island Bridge - we used playground and watched outdoor movie where staff had towels for us to sit on. We used both Skyliner stations which is such a great way to get to Epcot and Hollywood Studios and order coffee/great pastries at Joffrey's food cart before boarding. Centertown Market was good, especially breakfasts (avocado toast and Mickey waffles :-) ... mobile ordering is a great feature; Sebastian's Bistro was fantastic with a Caribbean-themed family-style meal; Banana Cabana always had football games or golf on; ALL staff EVERYWHERE was so friendly and helpful. And for all the people who complain about Mousekeeping... hey, it's a different time right now. Resort schedule is to clean every other day, which means trash removal, supply clean towels, and wipe down. One day I caught a sweet gentleman, who immediately swept and brought me extra coffee/cups. And yes, tipping does help. I'm sure when this pandemic is over, the old days of making beds and towel sculptures on the beds will return, but until then, ask nicely and be patient. Main pool area was amazing with plenty of room to swim, slide, wade in zero entry, or hang while toddlers romp in the pirate ship water play area. And lastly, the gift shop was one of the better supplied stores I've seen in many of the resorts. Great variety of Disney everything! I don't usually do reviews, but we loved this resort!!! Read less

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at Caribbean Beach Resort with two kids (6 and 11). Room was spacious and clean for a family of 4. The pull out bunk type of bed for optional 5th sleeper fits a child and was cute. Only negative were beds were a little soft and kind of cave into the middle and they needed more bartenders at banana cabana.… Read more
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at Caribbean Beach Resort with two kids (6 and 11). Room was spacious and clean for a family of 4. The pull out bunk type of bed for optional 5th sleeper fits a child and was cute. Only negative were beds were a little soft and kind of cave into the middle and they needed more bartenders at banana cabana. Standout positives: Very friendly staff-from concierge, restaurant and gift shop staff to friendly lifeguard. Dedicated buses to this resort as well as one stop at resort next door were easy to use. Skyliner is accessible to resort. I witnessed a lifeguard save a child in distress and was amazing. The frose drink at banana cabana was my favorite drink of the week. I didn’t do much research beforehand and the hotel does not provide much guidance so here are some helpful tips: -the resort is massive so if you are far away from the lobby but close to the skyliner, there is an awesome coffee/drink/donut shop a short walk to skyliner to grab an awesome morning cup of coffee -in addition to drink machines by the main pool and restaurant, each “village” has one building with the drink machine. Go ahead and buy that $20 refillable mug at the lobby/grab and go so that you can have unlimited refills during your stay. -there is an internal bus shuttle. If your room is far away from the main pool/restaurant/lobby, take that shuttle to save a long walk. We had no idea about this until we noticed a shuttle while waiting for our bus to Disney -buses run like clockwork. Never had to wait more than five minutes. Never had a problem getting room on a bus -4 types of buses: internal resort shuttle, magic kingdom, animal kingdom and Disney springs. You can access other resorts by transferring at magic kingdom or using monorail from magic kingdom. -when going to Hollywood studios or Epcot, the skyliner was super close and so easy to use -since the lobby is so far away, be sure to stock up on water for your mini fridge. -while lite housekeeping is only every other day, they provided so many towels our family of 4 never reused a towel -the pool had pool towels available for guests -the main pool has games and activities until 3pm and my kids loved everything about the pool -the main pool has very attentive lifeguards and life jackets -if your arrival or departure time is before or after check out, check your luggage with the bell service and you can still use the amenities. We arrived at 11am, checked our luggage and enjoyed the pool. When our room was ready at 3, we went to your room, called Bell service and our luggage was delivered within 20 minutes. So helpful -your magic band will work until midnight day of check out. -if you used magical express to arrive at hotel from airport, they save your return flight info and provide a card day before check out with your airport shuttle information. Very nice. I would hands down stay here again and wish I had known all of these tips prior to arrival so I hope these help someone else! Read less

This was an ok place to stay for a family of 5. Pros include: easy access to Hollywood Studios & Epcot via the Skyliner, rooms with a small/kid-size bed for a 5th sleeper, very quiet rooms, an ok pool for kids.

This was an ok place to stay for a family of 5. Pros include: easy access to Hollywood Studios & Epcot via the Skyliner, rooms with a small/kid-size bed for a 5th sleeper, very quiet rooms, an ok pool for kids. Cons - mediocre food on site, only offering maid service every-other-day & very minimal service at that (they won’t touch your bed at all), everything is spread out so there’s a lot of walking around the property involved in your stay, nothing special or “Disney-ish” about the place. There are very few interactions with staff members, so there is very little opportunity for that special Disney warm welcome that we had grown accustomed to. In comparison, we had excellent, magical stays at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge & Boardwalk Inn. Read less
