Historical Traveler Reviews Caribe Royale All Suite Hotel & Convention Center Orlando
Stay at the Best in the Orlando Area!
Our 5th trip to Disney and the BEST yet at the Villas at Caribe Royal!
We had stayed on Disney property in the past but won't again- this place is Spaceous for a family of 4 or 5- Extremely Clean, the pool, grounds, staff, and atmosphere is A+++. Complimentary transportation to the parks is a plus but the Caribe is TOP NOTCH in every way- request a Villa and Enjoy the Best Vacation in the Orlando area possible!
Excellent choice if the price is right
We read reviews before booking and were confident that the package offered to us thru Southwest Air travel agents was a solid deal. Well, we'll never find out because the first thing that happened to us when we checked-in was they upgraded us from out suite to a villa! Boy, if we'd known they were going to do that we would have packed half the clothes that we actually brought. The villas are extremely nice (at least if you were expecting to stay in a suite) : kitchen, whirlpool, washer and dryer two TV's
Our package came with a free buffet. It's not Ritz-Carleton quality, but it's free and there's enough fruit and cereal to get something healthy if you're not into bacon, eggs and sausage every morn.
No problem to drive to Seaworld or Disney. Pool is great for kids.
Staff is above average.
Grounds and facilities are so nice that it might be expensive if paying full price, but we'd definitely stay there again.
The Best Hotel
The Caribe Royale was the best hotel I've ever gone to. The service waas great, the rooms were finominal. I don't know how travel sites can only give it a 2 or 3 star hotel. It's more like a 5 star! Well in conclusion the Caribe Royale was awesome I hope you do too! From, Anonymous
We moved to this hotel after a disasterous start to our holiday at the Parc Corniche resort(not one i would recommend) It was brilliant , great pool everything was very clean, rooms were a great size. I would recommend it to anyone.
The Villas were great
We visited Disney in April 2003. This was our 7th trip to Florida in as many years. We have always stayed on-site at one of the Disney resorts. This year we were daring enough to try the Caribe Royale. This was a very beautiful resort and it ranked right up there with the Disney resorts. The price was much less than what we would have paid at a Disney resort. We stayed in the Villas. They were plenty spacious, as we had 6 people in our room and never got in each others way. The rooms were very clean and modern. I was worried about bugs, but I couldn't find any!!! The kitchen was very clean and nice set up for cooking a home-made spaghetti dinner, and breakfast every morning. The parking was only a few steps from our Villa. We stayed in Villa #7. The pool was .2 of a mile away, it was less than a 5 minute walk, and paved with beautiful landscape all the way. My 8 year old son loved the waterslide, then he couldn't wait for his daily pina-colada!!! The little bar by the pool made great iced drinks, and could cook up quite a jumbo hot dog and double decker grilled cheese that the kids enjoyed. There was always room in the pool, even with a lot of guests in the water. The washer and dryer in the room sure came in handy.
First visit was April 2002, Going back April 2003! Pool is fabulous with lots of room even when crowded! Cafe Largo is great for carry-out any time of day! The pool bar had awesome drinks and good hours of operation. Kiddy pool/playground for little kids is great because their are tables to sit at any enjoy food/drinks while the kids play. The grounds are lush and beautiful. Would highly recommend the Villas if you can afford it-they have everything you would ever need and are beautiful! If you are looking to stay outside of Disney properties, but close to the theme parks-stay here! You won't be disappointed!
Simply the best resort hotel in Orlando. Period.
My wife and I booked a four-night stay at Caribe Royale in mid-2001. The booking agency said we had made a great choice, but I reserved the right to disagree until we arrived... at which point, all reservations magically disappeared. The magnificent lobby hints at the excellence of the rest of the establishment.
We stayed in a double Queen suite (all rooms are suites here). The room was clean and well-kept. We noticed that the room didn't seem to be as cool as we liked, so we called the front desk. The maintenance department was happy to adjust the comfort settings for our room via computer.
Both the indoor and outdoor bars are nice, and the food was surprisingly good. At the time we went, the hotel featured a **free** breakfast buffet.
Then there's the pool. Ah, the pool. I sincerely feel that calling it "just a pool" is insulting. This is a lagoon in paradise: waterfalls (yes, your kids can swim under them if they like), a twisty slide reminiscent of your fave water park, and so many square feet that even at peak times the pool's not particularly crowded.
Caribe Royale has complimentary shuttle service to the Disney properties. Nevertheless, there's enough to do onsite that if you book a room at Caribe Royale for just a place to hold your stuff while at Disney, you're missing the point. This is definitely a place that offers an excellent opportunity to relax and unwind. Disney can wait a day. (Or two...)
It's been nearly a year and a half since we went, and we still sigh longingly whenever Caribe Royale is mentioned. We're going again sometime soon.
My husband,6 and 8 year old children and I stayed at the Caribe for 4 nights in August. We had a great time. The rooms were clean. We stayed in a king Jacuzzi which had one bedroom with a door and a big Jacuzzi tub in the shower. At first I wished the Jacuzzi had been seperate until showering in it. The water power was powerful and you were not cramped in a tight shower. Kids slept on a sofabed in living room with seperate TV. Elevators were very fast. Pool was the best with a waterfall and slide. Breakfast was very good and included in the cost. The only sort of bad thing was that the hotel was a 15 minute drive away from the major strip. But I guess that could be a good thing also. I would stay again.
We had been to Orlando for 10 days, first 3 in Caribe Royale, others in Disneys Coronado and Caribbean Beach Hotel. This hotel is just about 1-2 miles outside the disney property, just down the road. This hotel was the best of our stay and the less expensive one too. We enjoied it very much. The three towers are around the pool area which has a nice water fall, and a nice small slide. Towels are availible at the pool as much you want. Also a nice pool bar. There was always enough space at the pool, we found it really nice there. You have very short ways, the pool, the restaurant, the bar are just an elevator ride away. Each tower has an information desk, people are very nice. The good thing is also the breakfast, huge breakfast buffet and you can have it sitting outside. Of course it could be improved, but its OK like it is - more than you can eat with good quality, and each day somthing different as hot food. We liked that very much - don't go too late, than it is crowded. A Hotel where you really enjoy your vaccation. If we go to Orlando again, we will stay at Caribe Royale.
A wonderful time!
My family and I stayed at the Caribe Royale in June of 2001 for over one week. We loved it and had a wonderful time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone of any age! It was family friendly, but had amenities that would appeal to singles, young marrieds, and retirees as well. A delicious breakfast buffet was included in the price and we're not talking muffins and juice! You honestly could spend a week there and never have to leave the premises. Staff and concierge were great, the rooms are nicely appointed and the pool area is awesome, enough even for my thirteen year old to want to spend the day there. The location is out of traffic, but close to the parks and downtown Orlando if you want to visit Sea World or Universal. As a matter of fact, I am online right now booking a reservation for this summer! I have had many disappointments in accomodations in the Orlando-Kissimmee area, but this was a most pleasant surprise. International Drive is within driving distance and Lake Buena Vista is right off the Interstate for convenience.

... we were in another queue for about half an hour, waiting for our name to be called out. This felt like an uncoordinated debacle. Names were called on average every 10 minutes, but only one or two names at a time. The area was crowded with people waiting to "be invited" up to the table. We were finally seated at a table. Our server was excellent - although she forgot to hand out swords and wands until right when they were needed so that Dd1 and Dd2 only just got to use them in ...
... coasters so we forced him with us. They have metal detectors now to stop people from taking phones and cameras with them (probably to stop people suing if they drop it on the ride). But anyway, we head into the ride with no waiting time. The roller coaster was definitely one of my favourites, and we get off and check if Mike is okay. Every time you get off and roller coaster you feel “drunk” as you can’t walk straight haha. Mike is feeling okay ...
... Orlando and it was all aboard the Disney Magical Express bus! As you can imagine I was just as excited as all of the children surrounding us and I didn't really know what to do. Wasn't a very long bus ride and we were there, ready to check in to our little mermaid room at The Art of Animation Reaort! We got cool wrist bands with our names on them - mine was even spelt right!, badges to wear on our trip to Disney World, even a special birthday one for Michelle and ...
... we started stalking their shows around the park. I have not seen the kids laugh so much in so long.
At the end of the day the kids were not so keen on going to Magic Kingdom for the closing show, so we headed back to the resort for some swimming and arcade action.
A great end to a great holiday.

... so back to the ticketing office it was for exchanges. Mine was dry, but the girls needed replacements.Another water ride was next when we entered Jurrasic park world. It was all of my childhood dreams come true, and gave me a new desire to go and rewatch a movie that shaped my childhood.
The girls were losing their minds over the prospect of Harry potter world, which is where we passed through next. There was a pretty sweet castle that housed our ...
