Relax as lush gardens, warm breezes and the distant sound of steel drums beckon.

A lively shopping bazaar, food court, table service dining and two lounges give this resort the color of the Caribbean at an affordable price.

    Lovely resort

    Stayed here in January 2023. First time to Disney world and I loved this resort. Easy reach to the Skyliner and the shuttles stop at each village in the resort. The first night we ate at Sebastian bistro which was outstanding. I wouldn't rate the food at the grab-and-go as I got a caesar salad and the lettuce was brown. The fish taco's I got from the quick service area were not very nice at all. The fish was not fresh and tasted old and over-seasoned. The staff were all fantastic and did anything to help make your stay easier. I would go again, but I wouldn't use the quick service area or the grab and go.

    Great week at the Caribbean Resort

    My family and I stayed (Wife and 5 year old son) at the resort from 3/12 to 3/18. We had a great time there. We stayed in the Aruba section which was very close to the sky liner at the Rivera resort. It would be worth it to stay here even if that was the only benefit. If you are going to have a Hollywood Studios/Epcot visit the sky liner is an absolute must! We also visited the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom which required a shuttle bus ride. The bus rides were fine and we had little to no wait each time we rode. The rooms were a little on the small side but not crazy small. The 5 year old loved the pull down bed thought it was the neatest thing. The room even had a ceiling fan which was a pleasant surprise. The shower has great water pressure and the room had plenty of places to plug in devices. Internet was also quite good. Only complaint and it is a minor one was the bathroom itself was a little small. The grounds of the resort were IMMACULATE. It is a little spread out but did not find it overly so. The pool also was great. The pool was heated and was really nice with the theming as well as the slides. Bonus there are smaller pools in each area if you don't feel up to the walk. The quick service restaurant was great. Mobile ordering really made it a convenient way to eat after a long day. It is not 5 star but overall really good. The cup purchase that allows refills on property is also a no brainer purchase. We were lucky enough to have a free style machine in our building. When we come to Disney again this resort will definitely be a the top of our list of places to stay.

    Pros/Cons of Caribbean Beach Resort

    Just came back from WDW with our grandchildren, ages 8 and 5. Pros of the Caribbean Beach Resort - Skyliner for Hollywood Suites and Epcot, Bus for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. I recommend staying in Barbados area. You are close to the Skyliner and bus. You can go to the big pool or a small pool in the area. Cons - Food options are very limited. There is a food court in the lobby area, but it is small for the size of the resort. We did have an issue with housekeeping. They will clean the room everyother day. That was not the case for us. We called and they did attempt to have our room cleaned. Since it was so late in the day (5ish) and we were settling in after being out all day, we opted to not have it cleaned. Overall, it is a good resort to stay at with children. Transportation to the parks is great.

    1st Disney visit and not the last

    Totally forgot to write my review, stayed here back in Nov/Dec 22 for a festive visit. My goodness we picked right for us. As a couple with no children it was perfect for us as we were in Aruba right by the Skyliner and boy is that a game changer. It was perfect for a mid day break from the parks to hop back to the resort without waiting for a bus and then waiting for a return bus. We had a corner room, ground floor which was perfect. Its a HUGE resort and only downside was as 1st timers and not familiar with WDW app etc we had to use the main reception for a key card and just general advice. Took us ages to walk to our room. I am sure there are golf buggies or in resort shuttle that could assist. After a 10 hr flight stretching our legs was a good idea. We used the quick serve 2 or 3 times but I am not a huge early morning eater so most days had a snack in the parks. Food was not great but what I expected. The pool was great - Aruba pool we used. We never used the main pool but would have done if time allowed. All in all the hotel is great, since our stay I know the rooms are being upgraded and that will only be a good thing. We would absolutely stay there again only because of the Skyliner and Disney if you read these reviews - the WHOLE of the WDW area should be extended. Much better for the environment.

    Great Lodging inside Disney World

    Great location with direct SkyLiner access to Epcot. Easy 18 minute Disney coach bus to Magic Kingdom. Room was smallish but cleverly designed and clean and we basically used room for sleeping after go-go days at the theme parks. The Caribbean Resort has plenty of food options: grab-n-go, counter service for anything, and Sebastian's is a first-class restaurant. Expect Disney prices for everything but they deliver. The grounds are beautiful with plenty of places to sit and relax. Staff were very friendly and we loved the spaciousness of the resort layout.
