You can relax as lush gardens, warm breezes and sunny skies beckon. Five brightly colored "villages" - each named after a Caribbean island - capture the alluring ambiance of the tropics. This island playground features seven pools with the main pool featuring waterfalls and slide (five quiet pools) and one kiddie), arcade, playground, nature walk, bicycle rentals, marina with watercraft rentals and pristine white-sand beaches on the shores of a 45-acre lake. Resort features 2,109 guest rooms. Rooms are available for guests with disabilities.

Complimentary Wi-Fi service is now available in all Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Guests will now be able to access complimentary Wi-Fi in their rooms as well as in select common areas within the resort hotel, including restaurant locations, bus load zones, feature pools, arcades, convention spaces (if applicable) and the porte cochere.

Disney Hotel Resort guests also enjoy their Extra Magic Hours Benefit. On select days, Disney Resort hotel guests can enter a Disney Theme Park an hour early-and on select evenings, enjoy a Park up to two hours after regular closing time. That's when lines may be shorter and the weather can be more comfortable. Guests have time for a midday break or a dip in the pool. Then the gang will be ready to head back to the same Theme Park for more fun! Don't forget your Magic Your Way Tickets with Park Hopper Option! The Park Hopper option is the only way you will be able to fully enjoy the Extra Magic Hours Benefit when the extra hours in the morning is a different Disney theme park than the extra hours in the evening.

Needs Windows that open and better ventilation

The grounds and outside look and fell like a tropical paradise. The grounds are perfect. The room however had the smell of dampness and mold. The room does not allow for enough fresh air. The heat pump does not dehumidify the room properly. If you want freash air you have to have the door open. The shower head was green and corrroded plus the the shower massage disk that spins in the shower head gets stuck and stops. There was dust on the top shef in the room and dirt and dust under the sinks. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linens and towels were extremely clean. The trunk that acts as a bench seat and large draw smelled of mold and the draw did not work properly. The electronic cover on the front door of the hotel room would fall off now and then when entering the room. The shower shelf where you would place the soap had a layer of soap scum on the shelf that everyone places there soap on. A thin layer of melted soap from others bothered me. There was mold on the wall just above the cloathes line. I have a very strong sniffer and the first impression when opening the door of the hotel room was dampness and mold. This smell was due to a humidity issue and not enough fresh air being introduced into the room. The mold smeel was not from a cleaning problem. It appears that there is a dehumidification issue with this room. Having the ability to open windows would help. Other than leaving the door cracked through the night everything was fine. Food was very expensive even for the littlest item like mike and Juice. Being able to buy A half gallon of water and milk, a bigger box of cereal at a reasonble price, 7 eleven prices would have been ideal. I feel robbed by the Hotel when it comes to food. A 7 eleven, wawa, and Mcdonalds could do better then what the hotel had to offer. You recieve more for your money at a typical convience store than you do at the hotel food court.

Great Disney World Vacation

We had a great time and the Hotel was fantastic. Disney World without a car is great, transit options for everything included and straight to the main entrances can't be beat! Best and most relaxed way to spend a week at Disney World! Might consider the food plan on a future visit!!

Dining tip: In Hotel

Dining is available on the Hotel Grounds and is great for getting a snack or a quick breakfest or lunch. Purchas the all you can drink mugs on your first day, they are worth it. We might consider the meal plans on our next visit.

Great Stay

The hotel was very clean, staff was friendy and it had everything you would need. Great dining choices, pool hours with many lifeguards on duty. The shuttle busses to the parks were continuous thoughout the day - we never waited more than 10 minutes for a bus. Great family vacation

The hotel was nice...

My husband and I went to Disney for our anniversary. We picked the Caribbean because it was a mid-priced resort, and we weren't planning on spending much time at the hotel. I would definitely recommend it to someone going with kids, as they had a beautiful pool, and activities for the kids. The Finding Nemo decor didn't really appeal to my husband and I, but the room was clean and close to the bus stop. My only complaint was that when Disney Express dropped us off at the hotel lobby to check in after midnight, we had to wait over 20 minutes for bell service to bring us to our room, because there was only one person on staff, and two other couples came in with us.

If you've already seen the fireworks at the park, use that time to go on the rides that typically have longer lines during the day.

Everything is expensive. If you're looking to save, visit the local Publix and stock up for breakfast and lunches. Save your money for a nice dinner - PLENTY of choices (if you have a car)

It's Disney!!

Beautiful Hotel! One of our favorites along with the Wildetness Lodge. Quiet. Very Clean. Rat maze of matching building is a little confusing when your coming back late and tired. Bus service is great, we never had to wait more than a couple minutes. Quiet pool at Jamaica was fun. Main pool was a hit with the kids. I made the value low because you pay to be on Disney propert. We just stayed last night in a room of comparable size for $67.08 . However, I'd choose this resort again in the Moderate category.

Excellent Vacation Spot with Warm Feel

I have always stayed at the Caribbean when coming to Disney. It has a warm feel and friendly staff. I have always had a good experience and would say that it's a great value when compared to other Disney resorts.
