What Readers Are Saying About Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort

We had an excellent stay here! It was clean and beautiful to walk around and just relax . The pool was, by far, the best and was heated as well. The rooms are of adequate size for a hotel room and we love the privacy that the sliding barn doors give to the bath area.

If you're staying in Aruba, the Riveria Skylander is five minutes away and way closer than the other one..

Caribbean Beach rooms have the basics, plus advantages such as the Skyliner to make early park entry easier.

There is no way I would stay at Caribbean Beach again until it has had a major refurbishment. Buses were few and far between, but access to the Skyliner was amazing.

We requested the Aruba section at CBR which was convenient to both Skyliner stations.

While the Kkyliner was a positive aspect of Caribbean Beach Resort, the available food at the food court was truly awful.

Dining

Caribbean Beach's restaurants and food court are not well regarded by guests. It's fine for a quick bite before or after the parks, but better food is abundant elsewhere.

In Room Delivery

Sebastian's Bistro Unless you have no other options, walk over to the Riviera for better restaurants.

Centertown Market

Spyglass Grill Walk-up food option close to the Trinidad pool. Serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Banana Cabana

Calypso Trading Post

Joffrey's Coffee - Caribbean Beach A nice little coffee stand so you can grab a to-go before boarding the adjacent Skyliner.

Refillable Mugs Allows guest self-service soft drink refills from quick-service locations in hotels (NOT in theme parks) for $21.99 for the length of stay.

Amenities

SWIPE TO EXPLORE

6 Pools

Caribbean Beach's main pool is the Fuentes del Morro Pool, built like a Spanish fortress. It's got a zero-entry feature for small children, and a 102-foot water slide. In addition, the resort has 5 other pools, one in each island section.

Outdoor Movies

Free Disney Movies Under the Stars are shown most evenings, weather-permitting, on Caribbean Cay Island in the middle of the resort.

Jogging

The jogging path around Barefoot Bay is 0.6 miles and offers some great morning and evening views.

Campfire Activities

Caribbean Beach hosts marshmallow roasts around 5:30 PM nightly near the Martinique beach. It's better during the cooler months of the year.

Playground

Playgrounds are available around each island area of the resort. An interactive water play area is available near Jamaica.

Early Theme Park Entry

Disney resort guests get into each theme park 30 minutes earlier than off-site guests, every day.

Skyliner

Disney's Skyliner, an enclosed ski-lift-like gondola system, provides fast access to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios with very pretty views.
