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. ++

Just returned from Caribbean beach hotel Walt Disney World. Lovely clean hotel. Friendly staff. Great views of fireworks from Epcot and Hollywood studios. Good transportation to all theme parks and Disney springs. This. Hotel is used for cheer leaders certain times of the year, they and their parents made the Disney buses very loud and very busy! The hotel itself caters for everyone, but I wouldn’t recommend the quick service restaurant if you want a quiet meal at any time of day. It is always full of screaming children. There is one main pool that is always full but each island has it’s own pool area which is always a nice relaxing space. There is excellent laundry facilities by the pool areas, perfect for when you're relaxing in the pool, put the washing on and then go for a swim. The staff greet you whatever time of day you either leave the hotel,or return. They have a good grab and go selection of food if you need something on the run. Read less

My family (husband and 2 sons 5 and 1) just returned from a 6 night stay at Caribbean Beach. This is the third time staying at this resort. This resort is so beautiful and I love the beach areas and landscape. Port Royale is very nice and very welcoming. The food is pretty good and lots of places to sit. We don’t find this resort too large like a lot of people complain about. My youngest son loved the kiddie splash pad area. My oldest son loved the slides at the big pool. Now for the not so great things. The room is fairly new but shows definite signs of wear and tear. The carpet had multiple stains, the tub had some black areas which may be mold? The maids apparently never clean behind the bathroom door. There was hair in the tub when we arrived. The maid never vacuumed the whole time we were there. We left tips and only got towel animals once which was a bummer for my kids. We tried to order the in room pizza and waited on the phone for over 30 minutes and nobody ever answered. The busses to the parks were fine and fairly quick but the night at Animal Kingdom we waited for almost 45 minutes! Other resorts had 2 or 3 busses come while we waited! Overall we love the look of the outside of the resort and the pool but other things could definitely be improved. Unfortunately I just wasn’t that impressed and will stay somewhere else next year when we visit. Read less

We stayed in a water view room in the Barbados section. Our room was on a corner so there was lots of light with the two windows. The room was spacious and there were plenty of outlets and USB ports. The shelves in the refrigerator were oddly short and it was a bit of a challenge to put in soda cans without them rolling off the shelves. The door… Read more
We stayed in a water view room in the Barbados section. Our room was on a corner so there was lots of light with the two windows. The room was spacious and there were plenty of outlets and USB ports. The shelves in the refrigerator were oddly short and it was a bit of a challenge to put in soda cans without them rolling off the shelves. The door is glass so there is no storage on the door as with most mini-fridges. We enjoyed walking around the grounds and the newly renovated Old Port Royale was very nice. We look forward to staying there again. Read less
