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.

    Better after renovations!

    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.

    Most relaxing resort at Epcot.

    This resort is the best because it is close to Epcot, has a skyliner over to Epcot and Hollywood Studios in minuets. Buses all day and night, pool bar with steel drum music by the mail pool along with a private pool in each section. A quiet resort with a lot of food selections.

    Get away to the Caribbean at WDW

    We spent 4 nights at the Caribbean Beach Resort the week before Labor Day weekend. We stayed in the Barbados section (a big thumbs up). The room had been renovated and was nicely decorated. Upon arrival the room looked thoroughly cleaned and stocked with the necessities. The bed was very comfortable. They no longer clean rooms during your stay but replenish anything that you may need. We've stayed at value, moderate, and deluxe resorts at WDW. This resort is no more or less noisy than any of the others. It really depends upon the families near your room and the location of your room. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The Marketplace, bar, main pool, and store really take you to the Caribbean. The staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The pools for various sections were clean, full of clean towels, and inviting. Social distancing at the pool and elsewhere is very evident. I'd like to give a shout out to Mandy from Miami. She is part of the pool staff and goes to the various pools to sanitize the tables, chairs, and check on the pools. She was very friendly and did a great job! The sky liner transportation was fantastic! Surprisingly cooler from the breezes given the heat during the day. The only downside for this resort was the food. I didn't care for it, but my husband did. A very minimal selection in both of our opinions. Do check on your food order. Sometimes the the mobile order app. glitches and doesn't let you know when your food is ready for pick up. We would definitely stay there again!

    Convenient, clean and relaxing at the Caribbean Beach Resort

    We didn't receive our Magic Bands before we traveled so you can now open your room door with your app on the My Disney Experience which was really incredible! We were so tired from traveling and had a problem with our shower. The maintenance guys came to fix it and then we went to the lobby to get our Magic Bands and dinner. The resort is huge but it only takes 5-10 minutes to walk to the food court area which is also where the main pool is located. Luckily it's a beautiful walk and our area had it's own pool which was less crowded. The beaches have hammocks which were great. The food court has a limited menu but it sufficed for when we wanted to stay in. There's also a bar and kids area with entertainment. The best part about CB is riding the Sky Cars to Hollywood or Epcot. It only takes 5 minutes and it was fantastic! The rooms at CB are a little dated and they need to get rid of the carpet and just put wood floors down but the furniture was perfect to unpack everything for our week long stay. You only get housekeeping every other day and they missed our room so between that and the maintenance problem the manager gave us some Disney magic. Great customer service. Would stay here again. On the safety, everyone had their masks on and everything was well thought out as far as keeping social distancing and cleanliness. We were very impressed.

    Definitely Different , but still magical !

    Just finished 4 night stay at CBR. For this Disney kid that has been going to WDW since the 70's and physical "E tickets", this trip was quite different. Disney gets a 10 for creating a safe environment in the resort and parks. Cast members are always cleaning and all venues strive to keep everyone a safe distance apart. 99% of guests are complying with covid protocols. The reduced park hours really takes away the days of going to a park early, retreating back to resort for pool and chill time, then returning to a park for evening fun. With no park hopping, and many attractions not operating (Indiana Jones, Ariel, Beauty & Beast, Fantasmic ) one may not see a day`s worth of attractions at one park. Wait times were not bad ranging from 10 to 60 minutes. Food wise, many restaurants at resorts and in parks are closed, and those open have a scaled down menu offering. For a Disney veteran the Magic was still there and the wife and I had a great week.
