Our Pirate Room

At a Glance

    Pros

  • plenty of on-site outdoor activities give the place a lush summer-camp feel
  • convenient to Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Downtown Disney

    Cons

  • you don't truly feel swept away to a tropical island
  • the beach is for sitting on, as the only swimmable waters are in the pools, not the lake
  • walks from your room to the beach or a restaurant can take up to 15 minutes

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Review

A series of palm-studded "villages," awash in dizzying pastels and labeled with names straight from Pirates of the Caribbean, each with its own pool, form this Disney value resort. Pirate-themed rooms are perfect for tweens smitten with Jack Sparrow. The villages surround 45-acre Barefoot Bay, with its white-sand beaches and bridges that connect to a 1-acre path-crossed play and picnic area. You can rent boats to explore the lake, or rent bikes to ride along the 1½-mile lakefront promenade.

    We enjoyed our stay

    We only stayed 3 days, but we enjoyed the resort. I thought food court was great. Lots of variety and something for everyone. My family loved the resort store as well. The only issue is they don't have elevators, so if you are not on the first floor, you will have to carry your luggage up the stairs. Other than that, we have no complaints.

    Quiet and Relaxing

    Just returned yesterday from a week-long trip to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. It was a great place to stay! We stayed in Martinique which is right next to Port Orleans so we could quickly walk over for meals, shopping or swimming in the main pool. We loved the beautiful, caribbean-themed decor in the room, the very comfy beds, plenty of space for a week's worth of clothes for a family of 4, peaceful and lovely view of the lake, very quiet room (we were never disturbed by noise). It was always nice to come back to this serene environment after a full day of incredibly large crowds. The Disney transportation was great too. We could always catch a bus directly to any of the parks and directly back to our resort. They said buses ran every 20 minutes but we never waited more than 10. The only thing that could be improved a bit was the food service. There was plenty of selection but the area was often crowded and service was sometimes slow. However, all employees (cast members) were friendly and helpful. This was our first experience with any Disney resort and it was one we would definitely repeat!

    Terrible room service

    We decided to try a new resort and stayed for 10 nights in Barbados. We had the worst housekeeping ever. She never once changed the sheets, the trash wasn't emptied (you can imagine how full one of those little trash cans get after that long) and she rehung dirty towels that we had placed on the floor. We never tried the food court because when we went to check out the cashier made fun of us to other guests because we had a question about the Disney Dining Plan. It was our first day and first time trying the plan. The buses had way to long of a wait. Most days we waited 30-45 minutes and sometimes up to 1 hour. We never waited less than 30 minutes. It felt like we spent more time waiting for buses than being at the parks.
