Relax as lush gardens, warm breezes and the distant sound of steel drums beckon. Five brightly-colored "island" villages surround a sparkling 45-acre lake with sand beaches, heated "quiet" pools, a marina, bike rentals, and a nature trail. A lively shopping bazaar, food court, table service dining and two lounges give this resort the color of the Caribbean at an affordable price.

    Such a Great Stay

    We loved, loved our stay at Caribbean Beach. We stayed 6 nights and were in Trinidad building 37. It's a bit of a walk to the main lobby area, but we didn't mind. The rooms are Under the Sea themed. We thought they were so cute, and there was SO MUCH STORAGE! Even though Caribbean Beach is a very large resort, we had many amenities close to our room. Every "island" has a quiet pool. Trinidad also had its own little restaurant, Spyglass Grill, which we really enjoyed eating at. There is also a laundry facility in Trinidad, and a bus stop. So, we only walked up to the main lobby area when we wanted to swim in the big pool. We went to the pool a lot of evenings, and we could see the fireworks at Epcot there. The Skyliner was also amazing and makes Caribbean Beach so accessible to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. I'm not sure if we just got lucky, but we had great experiences with the Disney buses here, too. Each time we left Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom, there was a Caribbean Beach bus within a couple minutes. We never waited longer than like 3 or 4 minutes for a bus! We could also see Disney working hard to maintain this resort. At one point, they were repainting some of the walkways in front of the rooms. Later, we saw them replacing some of the air conditioners in some of the rooms. So, the resort is well maintained. There is an Alexa in the room, too. You can ask it for whatever you need (I asked for decaf), and someone brings it to your room shortly afterwards!

    So peaceful

    Stayed here as part of our trip to Orlando. The resort was quiet , peaceful clean and wonderful. There was 5 of us staying in an under the sea room in Trinidad with 5th bed. The room The room was clean on arrival but don’t feel house keeping really cleaned it too well. Have the under the sea room gave us extra space im not sure I would have liked to have had 2 beds out all h the. We were disappointed by few aspects of the room: Air conditioning was really noisey Glass shower screen made it so difficult to was kids hair in bath The door to the toilet if you slid it too much it was awful to get it open again. The drinks cooler sadly didn’t really cook anything The Resort The resort was really big although in Trinidad we didn’t find the walk too far. The sky liners were one of my favourite things- we jumped on them to go to boardwalk, resort hop, go to Epcot and see the fireworks. Much preferred when we had one to ourselves but sometimes had to share. I was pleased there was pretty much never a queue for them either. Pools were great - alittle disappointed my 10 year old couldn’t go on slides at the smaller water area - felt the height restrictions was too small. She did however enjoy the pool games. We went to toast marshmallows one night and I found staff friendly in all of the resort but in marshmallow area I didn’t feel it. There was 5 of us and instead of giving up 5 marshmallow kits they asked us how many we would like and I felt if I’d said 5 it would have looked greedy . Kids had a brilliant time lizard spotting and playing in the sand. Food We only ate in quick service - which was ok but fruit was really expensive at 5 dollars for 2 bananas Overall we had a wonderful time and would return but only for a few days as I feel room is too small for any longer .

    Fantastic stay and would love to go back. However watch out for leaking AC units and wet slippery walkways.

    Just wanted to share a review after our recent stay at CRB. We left 1 week ago after an amazing 10 night stay. We are a family of four ( two kids ages 10 and 13) and are from the UK. We would love to go back to CBR one day and can’t really imagine wanting to stay in another Disney resort if we are ever able to return. The resort: We loved the relaxed Caribbean atmosphere, the steel drum music playing, the beautiful lobby building, the layout of the resort with the different islands, and the small pools and the bigger fun pool area, the lake, Caribbean Cay, the different options for food ( Inc Riveria) and just how beautiful it all was. It didn’t feel too far to walk anywhere to us, although the heat zapped your energy fast but that’s true of walking anywhere in Orlando. We loved spotting animals and saw lots of rabbits, lizards and turtles both in and out of the water. Didn’t see any snakes or gators which were we simultaneously glad and sad about! 😂 We had read online that it was too big, but we didn’t feel this at all and everything was in walking distance or you can use the room phone or Disney app or Hey Disney / Alexa to speak to front desk, bell services or to request things for the room. We ran out of shower gel one night and used Hey Disney to ask for more and within 10 mins someone knocked on our door to give us some. 👏 All the Cast Members we spoke to were friendly and helpful, front desk, bell services, food court, housekeepers etc and I had a really nice chat with the man who clears up towels etc around the Trinidad pool. Transport options: The Skyliner was a massive bonus for a fun and quick way to get to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. We loved using this and it was a ride in itself with beautiful views. We found buses were frequent and easy to use to the other two parks and Disney Springs/ Typhoon Lagoon. We rope dropped Animal Kingdom using the bus one day with no difficulties and went to Magic Kingdom often later in the day and stayed until fireworks/ the evening and buses were always frequent to and from the park/ resort. Sometimes had to stand but the journey didn’t take long and we always got on. The only bad journey we had was after H20 Glow after hours party at Typhoon where we had got caught in a massive downpour when we first got there and all our stuff/clothes got wet/ stayed wet. Having to change bus at Disney Springs and have two very cold bus journeys home in the dark with tired kids wasn’t fun. The journey took ages too we think because the roads were extra busy as the Drone show started that night at Springs. As a bonus we did get to see some of it at Typhoon Lagoon though! The Room/Trinidad We booked a standard view 5th sleeper. We had requested on the MDE app and via our travel agent that we ideally have an upstairs room, in a quiet section with no interconnecting door. Our son has some Special Needs and we wanted somewhere quiet after long and overstimulating park days. We asked to be near skyliner and bus stop. We didn’t make any requests for which island as from reading online they all have their benefits but I was kind of secretly hoping for a newly refurbed / under the sea room so was so happy we got this! We did online check in and were allocated an upstairs room in Building 34 in Trinidad and we loved it! Location was perfect. 5 mins walk or less over the bridge to the CBR skyliner, 2-3 mins to bus stop, Spyglass Grill and Trinidad pool and laundry room too. We did laundry twice (download the app to get $5 free laundry credit, & I loved the big American machines that washed and dried everything so quickly compared to ours at home!). The Trinidad beach was gorgeous, pristine sand, hammocks, loungers and the turtle statues and it was bigger than the other beaches. Nice view of Epcot fireworks in the distance and it was mesmerizing to watch the skyliners go in and out of the station from there too. I think all the islands looked great ( Jamaica buildings were so pretty) but I think I’d like Trinidad again for feeling a bit more secluded and the amenities in that area too whilst still being able to walk to OPR / the big pool etc. The room itself was really nice. Maybe not the fanciest ( we had just come from 5 nights at Hard Rock Hotel at Universal) and that hotel and room had more of a wow factor and visual appeal. But for a family of 4 for 10 nights, our room in Trinidad worked perfectly for us. Storage space was amazing ( we didn’t even fill it all) and it was a lot easier to keep organised than it had been at Hard Rock. The beds were comfy and the room was clean ( only the floor maybe could have done with mopping a little more towards the end of our stay) but the air conditioner was very loud. I had read this is a common issue so didn’t bother about complaining about it and it worked well to cool the room but it was very loud at night even on the lowest setting. We did all get used to it though and it served as white noise when we passed out with Disney exhaustion! The fridge / cooler in room was fine for water, fruit and yogurt. The Freestyle drinks machine was pretty much underneath our room on the ground floor and this was perfect for refills and cold water so we were lucky with the location for this too. *My only criticism/ warning is how wet and slippery the grey painted floors get. I fell over one morning on a wet balcony floor in our building as someone’s AC unit has leaked outside their room all over the walkway and I didn’t spot it. I twisted my ankle fairly badly. I informed front desk and they got me some ice for it and I had two CMs (Inc the lady who is Head of Housekeeping) come and check on me and apologise. She said it was a frequent issue with the old AC units leaking and offered an extra room clean for us, which we didn’t need/ want. I noticed quite a bit of water on the walkways after this, from AC units and the freestyle machines leaking. Sometimes they had caution signs out but often not. ⚠️ I’d hate for anyone else to get more injured by falling on it so keep an eye out when walking I really think they should replace all the old and noisy AC units at the resort. The AC at Hard Rock was silent in comparison and no risk of wet floors and falling. Food: We ate at Centre Town quite a few times, and enjoyed the pizza, salads, burgers and fish tacos. We had breakfast at Spyglass Grill once and ordered take out one night when we returned late from a park. We went to Riveria food court for breakfast one morning and it was delicious ( lemon blueberry pancakes are worth the hype!) Towards the end of our stay we start to crave a bit more variety than was offered by the QS locations. But overall food was good, plentiful and we thought reasonable value for money. We had one meal at Sebastian’s Bistro to celebrate our 15th anniversary and this was a really nice treat. Possibly a bit overpriced for what we got but we expected it would be pricey. Service was great and the setting lovely. Watching fireworks by the lighthouse afterwards was a nice end to the evening. Our only regret is not having a bit more time to spend at the resort as we were in the parks a lot! It was a brilliant stay at CBR and apart from the minor ish issues with the AC units and wet floors we’d 100% recommend it. 🌟

    Paradise at WDW

    This hotel gets a lot of hate but we loved it! We stayed 2 weeks in a water/pool view 5th sleeper. I Requested an Under The Sea room in Trinidad and was thrilled to get the best location! We were in 3660 and we could see Spyglass Grill, the Trinidad Pool, the skyliner and the bus stop! I actually thought this was a perfect location as the skyliner was 5 mins walk, everything else was on our doorstep and we were away from the hustle and bustle of Old Port Royale. We loved the room, tonnes of storage to unpack for a fortnight. Double sink was so handy - I want one at home 🤣 This is my 4th time to Florida and I’ve never stayed on site before. But with car hire and parking costs and the fact we were just doing WDW and the dining credit offer it didn’t make sense to do anything else. My husband would only stay on site if it were distinctly not Disney themed 🤣 and we wanted a 3rd bed so kids didn’t have to share - CBR was perfect. Room decor was lovely clean and fresh, and the pull down beds were a game changer to save space in the daytime, easy to set up at night. People complain about CBR being too big, I think this would only be the case if you had severe mobility problems or just don’t like to walk. We walked everywhere, and top to bottom is 10 mins at a leisurely pace. The setting is beautiful, it’s so peaceful and when visiting some of the deluxe tower style hotels they felt chaotic and busy so we were glad to be in the spread out quiet of CBR. We used the Trinidad pool more than the main pool as that was a 5 min walk and constantly very busy. Both Pools were so warm in the 100 degree heat neither felt particularly refreshing tbh. We loved all the QS food we had and it has some lovely Caribbean non fast food options. There’s a Joffreys next to the Skyliner to get full range of coffee, we found the pods in the room ghastly but the filter coffee at Spyglass was better so filled up there in the morning. The refillable cups were such good value and we even managed to sneak refills in some places in the parks 🤫 Overall we said we absolutely would come and stay here again, the skyliner is a game changer and basically our favourite activity of the whole trip! I could never stay anywhere now where it was bus only. The temps were too hot for us really but I’m hoping for Feb half term 2026, and Tokyo next year 💙

    Honest family review - key things to know

    This review aims to share all the key things a family would be wanting to know about our stay. - May 27th 2024 - Family 6. 11, 39, 42 - were from the uk - our youngest child has Autism The room - we had a preferred room which was exceptionally well located adjacent all the key facilities (Barbados we stayed in) - for a family of four the rooms are small and dated esp small for a family of four - the beds and pillows we’re comfortable - the room was clean - the air conditioning was our big issue, it was utterly terrible, it was so loud that the family couldn’t sleep with it on, we had to turn it off but you could still hear next doors. It then got too hot in the room without it on ….it was a massive problem for us. So much so we had to request a resort move after the first day. This may not be an issue for everyone but I even had to wear noise cancelling headphones to even nearly attempt to sleep. - the hotel did transfer us to another resort which was miles better. This was done without much fuss which was grateful and a relief The hotel - the hotel is clean, tidy , attractive, well maintained - the transport links including the skyline are amazing, this quite frankly is what you pay the big money for - most of the staff were very helpful and polite The facilities - pool is lovely but it is a lot smaller than it looks - eateries and other facilities are nice - food variety was ok but nothing special Extra cool things - MAGICAL MOMENTS are so so cool, we got to experience two of them. I won’t spoil the fun but there are different ones around. We lucked out and they were absolutely fantastic TOP TIP - we got groceries delivered straight to the hotel so all snacks and drinks we didn’t have to pay for. It saved us an absolute fortune. We took a large cool bag into the park each day with resealable bags full of resort ice to cool drinks and snacks. We didn’t pay for drinks in the park either. The ice you get for free dispensed at your hotel.
