“Great Disney Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Came here about 15 years ago with my parents and came back again in May 2013 with my partner now fiancée. Its lovely to see it is still the same setting and only two floors great walking around the other rooms and so very close to epcot as you can see the fireworks there. The restaurant isn't very good as very expensive and would of like a more food range to be provided. The room was very good we was told we would not have sea room but be at the back of 21 but really we were in room 2124 which is right near the lake and on the end so more sunlight.

The safe is a little small for the room so had to lock camera away in the suitcases. The bus service was excellent but sometimes we did cheat and ordered a taxi as some we had to wait over 30 mins.

All in all I still loved this hotel like it was yesterday

Room Tip: get a end one for two windows will help with the light and make it much bigger, and ideally would be...

We chose this hotel because our boys really wanted the pirate rooms. We were warned of the large size of the resort and the fact that the pirate rooms were far away. Overall the rooms were clean and the pirate room was a lot of fun for my boys. It was a quiet hotel. We had a vehicle and in the end decided that driving to the parks was easier than waiting for a bus. Magic kingdom was the only exception. Bus wait times ranged from one hour (we were given a fast pass due to this one) to just a few minutes. I'd say average was 15-20. We also chose to eat breakfast in our room before we set out to the parks. It would be time consuming to get from the room to port royale and then wait for a park bus each day. I'd suggest getting yourself to the first pick up spot near Jamaica if you need to be at a park by a specific time in the am and you don't have a vehicle.

We don't regret staying here. We did have a fabulous trip. The grounds were clean, staff was amazing, and we were so close to most parks. Next time we will just pay more to stay at a hotel on the monorail.

Room Tip: Pay to be closer to the main building. If you don't, I'd suggest getting yourself to the fi...

Stay at Martinique if you can. It is the first stop on bus route which means you are more likely to get a bus seat rather than stand. Rooms were okay. Housecleaning was okay. Bell service from the airport to the resort from Magical Express was poor. It took 5 hours from landing to get bags so my daughter slept in her swimsuit. :( Food court was yucky. It was a bit like a school cafeteria. Shutters was way over priced. The grounds were well maintained. If traveling to Downtown Disney give yourself over an hour to get to the restaurant. Although 10 minutes away the bus adds at least an hour.

Over the last 10 years I have had the opportunity to stay at each Moderate resort on Disney grounds. This one was my favorite. I loved the beaches and pools. The rooms were even nicer than I had expected. As always, you feel as though you and your belongings are safe on Disney property. All night someone rides around the parking lot keeping everyone safe. I also found that the staff at this hotel was amazing. From the Manager to housekeeping, anyone I spoke with was awesome. I will return back to Caribbean Beach the next time I go to Disney World. I also found the traveling distances between the parks and this hotel was perfect. The property is relaxed and much welcomed after a busy day in the parks.

Room Tip: There are no elevators at the resort, keep that in mind.

Dont waste your money. stay somewhere else. we stayed at Carribbean beach long. It was a long way from parks buses horrible. everything overpriced. Rained everyday but once. We stayed at this resort for pool but never got to see it or touch it. My son and I both had blisters. He was tired and me alsi a coupke days enough unless tou are a Disney fanatic but still would not dtay inside oark again. I would get passes for few days. and drive. I had a choice between Disney snd pop up camper would have enjoyed it more. Foid nothing amazing. expect to pay 14$ for lunch. we malso got pirate room very far from everything you even have ti tske bus to snack and gift area bummer.

We stayed here for 2 weeks in May 2013. The resort was beautiful. Very pretty Carribean stye. The rooms were cleaned daily and the staff were lovely. The rooms seemed a little basic but I was assured by my husband they were going for the Carribean effect??

We didn't spend a great deal of time in the resort as we were out and about around Disney with our two girls, aged 8 and 6.

There are many small pools dotted around the apartments and then a larger pool near the restaurant and main area. THis has a couple of slides and daily entertainment for the children. There are lots of lifeguards who are very keen. Whilst in the past I have always thought lifeguards sit doing nothing, these were actually actively watching the pool. On three occasions over only one and half days spent around the pool, they jumped in to "rescue" children who probably did not need rescuing but good all the same.

Nightly Disney DVD plays for the children (and adults) if you want to relax and have a drink.

Food good.

Lovely large lake runs through the middle and a variety of boats can be hired for this. Beach areas around the lake with hammocks. Lots of joggers around the lake which I am informed was a nice run.

All in all, very pleased with the hotel. One thing I did not realise was that we did not have a balcony (don't think any of the rooms do). We did miss this as it would have been nice to put the kids to bed and have a drink to unwind on the balcony but having said that we were so tired on an evening it was not missed as much as I had thought it would be.

Would definitely recommend.

This is a very large resort. We loved our room in Aruba. It felt huge in comparison to the Pop Century rooms and much nicer. The dual vanities were a plus for our family of 4. It was also super quiet in the village of Aruba. The wifi worked perfectly but there was no cell phone service in our room. We had a 1st floor room. There are no elevators. The theming is very well done throughout the resort and our kids loved Castaway Cay and the main pool. Each village has it's own quiet pool, but it was a short walk over to the main pool, which the kids preferred. The hot tubs were always packed but the pool is so large that it never really felt crowded.We ate at Old Port Royal (main area) once and it was forgettable. All of our food was bland and tasted reheated. We never had any issues with the buses. Our longest wait was probably 10 minutes. The buses did tend to get crowded coming back from the parks at night but that is to be expected. We ordered pizza delivery one night. It was expensive, $25 for one large pizza, but the pizza was delicious! It was fresh, hot and perfect! Plenty of pizza for our family. The beach was a lovely plus for us. It was so nice to swing in the hammocks in the evening. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Make sure that you choose a preferred room if walking is difficult for you. Also, there are no eleva...
