Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This resort is the largest resort that I have ever stayed at on Disney property. It was a last minute booking, so we were limited as to what was available at the time of booking. The rooms were large and beds were comfortable. We managed to get a room with the extra drop down bed which is great so I didn't have to share a bed with my kicking 13 year old daughter. We were located in Martinique, which seemed to be the closest "island" to Centertown/Old Port Royale (the food court and main pool area). It was a short walk (short at Caribbean Beach means less than 15 minutes). Pool is nice, but seems small compared to other Disney resorts we have stayed at. Seems like we waited a long time for buses to and from the parks/Disney Springs (we almost gave up one time after a 20 minute wait and drove...then the bus came). Those bus signs were NEVER right! The property is very lovely (beautifully landscaped!), but very big. I am not sure we will stay here again because of the sheer size of it. Also, there are no elevators, so keep that in mind when packing...you'll have to lug your luggage up and down the stairs if you are handling it yourself!
For our first trip to Disney World, we (4 adults & two toddlers) stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort. We were originally going to stay at another moderate resort, but when the free dining promotion became available, we switched hotels to take advantage of it. I had heard that this was the best moderate resort and I can see why others say that. Upon arrival (after an 1 1/2 wait to get on the Magical Express) we were greeted and checked into our hotel room quickly. We had rooms in Martinique, which our travel agent requested. This was the BEST location. Short walking distance from the food court (Port Royale) and beautiful views of the water, we were very pleased with our room assignment. I will say the rooms are not fancy - if you are going for "wow" then you need to stay elsewhere. For us, they were fine - we didn't spend much time in our room anyway. We only ate at the food court a few times - food was a little pricy, but we had the dining plan so we didn't pay attention to prices as much. They have a nice pool in Port Royale as well as smaller pools on each "island." Seating is available around the pool/water area outside the food court - we sat outside several times and it was really nice. We didn't wait more than 20 minutes to get on a bus (takes you to all of the parks & Disney Springs - they also have an internal shuttle that takes you between islands - because of our location, we really didn't utilize this bus) so no complaints there. Located in the Epcot area, we weren't more than 15 - 20 minutes from any of the parks. My son loved the arcade that was located in Port Royale. No microwave, but a mini fridge is in the room. We would stay here again, but are hoping to stay at a different Disney property next time so that we can experience a different resort. However, if free dining for this resort was offered again, we would definitely stay here!
My family and I will only stay at this hotel when we go to Disney World. The hotel is on a rather large piece of property but there is an internal shuttle that goes throughout the resort if you do not feel like walking (farthest walk to the main food place is approximately 5 minutes on flat ground). The hotel is themed as if you were on a Caribbean island and the property is broken up by "island" but it is a giant circle with a lagoon in it. The food court in the main building (Port Royale) is amazing, a la carte style, and is very reasonable/affordable. The hotel is very clean and the room can easily hold a family of 4 adults. The staff is very professional, friendly, and really strive to make your stay memorable and amazing. The buildings are two stories but there are elevators if you are unable to walk the flight of stairs. It is conveniently located near Epcot and their is shuttle service by bus to all of the Disney Parks. Also because it is on the Disney property, you can utilize the magic band system as well as take advantage of the early morning and evening magic hours (extended park hours). Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Disney.
Excellent bedroom very large with double beds, restroom , airconditioner, enough toiletriesAlso there is a kettle for tea and coffee.Bus shuttle approx 50 meters from the roomsand there is a shuttle service every 20min
We stayed at CBR for five nights in November. We're fairly regular WDW vacationers (once every year or so), so we've stayed at a variety of resorts and have a good idea of the Disney standard.CBR definitely achieved that standard. The renovated rooms are quite nice. We enjoyed the rooms and the stay. The food court was really good (we only had breakfast) and the shop was pretty good as well. The one thing that got us was the size. We're in our late 20s, and it still felt pretty overwhelming. We've stayed at Coronado before, so we though "Big resort? No problem!" But this was quite big. We were in Jamaica, so we were "right over the bridge," but it's still a 5-10 minute walk to the main area. The only other issue I had was the Custom House being separate from Port Royale. With Magical Express, they deliver your bags to the room, but you're responsible for getting them back to the Custom House for pick up. I'm a DIY'er, but the distance was too far to lug our stuff, so we had to call Bell Services. Then, while we waited, (check out was at 11am, pick up was at 1pm) we just sat on a bench at the Custom House because there was nothing to do. So that was a little frustrating. Other people were doing the same thing. All in all, it's a nice resort. I'm not sure if I would return due to the size. We would go back to Coronado first.
