Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Really liked the resort. Especially building 24. First stop on the bus line. Right next to one of the pools. Not too far from the temporary restaurant. Construction made getting around by foot a little crazy. Never noticed any noise from the construction though. Nice rooms. Bed was super comfortable. Pool was clean and always had enough towels.
Regardless of what you may think about the huge, sprawling, crowded, and expensive Disney theme parks, at the least you want a clean comfortable room at the end of a tiring day. The Caribbean Beach Resort should have been retired years ago. The rooms are dark, dingy, and dirty. I found someone else's hairs in my bathtub the first day (it obviously had not been cleaned after the last guest departed and the hairs were hard to miss - see accompanying photo). If they were priced at the same level as an Econo Lodge, it might make sense for a budget trip. But the rooms are outrageously expensive, consistent with a first-class hotel in other locations. The food is terrible (and there is little in the way of vegetarian or low-fat options). There is construction all around. The bus service to the Magic Kingdom takes 15-20 minutes and you have to wait up to 20 minutes for the bus to arrive, so the property is quite inconvenient as well. I would never stay at this property again. Finally, my room was not ready at the announced check-in time and they kept me waiting over 20 minutes while they tried to find an available room. At over $300 per night just for the room, what a rip-off!
The construction made it quite hard to get around the resort, and that was on top of it being a pretty big resort already. Lot of detours to make and the 'magic' was kind of ruined by diggers everywhere.When we arrived at our room after having received a text to say it was ready, we arrived to find out only one of our two pirate beds had been made...!! Called reception and it was quickly rectified, but honestly it was a bit astounding that with the system for mousekeeping that is supposed to ensure things like that don't happen... well. You get my drift. Getting buses was difficult in the morning. We ended up walking two bus stops back fairly regularly in order to get on a bus without waiting forever. Compared to my wonderful stay at Coronado, this one was kind of a disappointment. Maybe it'll be better once the work is all done. On a side note, pirate room was pretty cool even if you're over 30, it'sjust the door to the adjoining room was not at all soundproof!!
We previously stayed at Old Key West and the Polynesian. This was definitely as step down in terms of room comfort. But our kids are bigger so we hardly spend any time in the room except for sleeping so it worked out perfectly. We actually used the restaurants here a little more. The food court is fine. Dining is better in the parks or at downtown disney. Transportation is good. Everything is by bus but, I think it is about as central as you can get to all the parks. We stayed in Martinique and it was a great location in terms of bus stop and walking ease to the food/pool area. I probably won't but, I definitely would stay there again and be happy with that.
First time to WDW, 2 guests, stayed 6 nights. We arranged our honeymoon trip through AAA and was advised that the Resort was under construction. Check-in with Carlos at the Guest House was very easy, shuttle service was quick and organized. Our checked luggage made it to our room without issue. We were placed in the Aruba section and although construction was visible to where we were staying, we never felt interrupted or was physically bothered (i.e. sounds, debris, etc). Our room (5444) was clean and spacious with one king bed, fridge, his & her sinks, shower/tub combo, large flatscreen TV, and small breakfast table with chairs. Bed was comfortable. Location to the ice machine, pool, beach area, shuttles, and laundry was convenient. Getting to the Cay (where the main pool, play areas, cabana bar, and eating area is located) required a small hike but the scenery is very pretty and we would use the shuttle from time to time instead of walking. And due to construction, we were the last stop on the route and so we didn't have to make numerous stops in between transfers.On our first night, we ordered room service pizza and salad - it was surprisingly good and fresh. For the rest of our stay, we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet more than the dinner buffet although both were delicious.The drink cups were super handy! The food truck service which was convenient and filling for late nights. We also grabbed a few drinks from the Centertown Bar - the banana cabana was DELICIOUS.We opted for Lift and Uber instead of the shuttles because we just wanted to. The shuttles ran in 20 to 30 min intervals as far as we could tell. And they were never full each time we got on to get food. The crowds, from what we gathered, were much smaller than the usual peak-season crowd.We took advantage of the Resort's package pick-up service. We would buy items from each park and have them sent to the Resort for us to pickup later. Such a great service!We also noted they do airline bag check-in upon departure but we opted out as we only had carry ons. Arranging our leave with the Mickey Express was convenient - it was so nice to have our boarding passes BEFORE getting to the airport.In conclusion, we THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay and we are excited to see the improvements and new additions in the years to come!
