Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is a moderate resort with 2,112 rooms in 33 buildings. 6 beautifully designed villages named after various islands ( Barbados, Martinique, Aruba, Jamaica, Trinidad North, and Trinidad South) surround a 45 acre lake, Barefoot Bay.
When arriving “home” your first stop will be “The Custom House”, this is where you check in, bell serve, concierge, and the front desk. Once your all checked in, CBR (Caribbean Beach Resort) has an internal bus to take you to your village bus stop. Yes, an internal bus. This is a big resort, however you wouldn’t know it. If you’d rather take a stroll there is a 1.4 mile paved path around Barefoot Bay .
When checking in, I would suggest requesting a 1st floor room. Each building has 3 floors, but no elevators. Preferred rooms are Trinidad North or Martinique and are closest to Centertown.
What’s to eat!? Head over to Centertown to Market Street for quick service meals or to Shutters, a beautiful sit down restaurant.
Looking for that special Disney item? Calypso Trading Post and Straw Market, should have it. Don’t forget to pick up a Coconut “Post Card”.
Most rooms are standard Disney rooms with 2 double beds. You can choose from standard, water/pool view, or preferred room. There are a few with 1 King size beds. All rooms have a safe and coffee maker in the room. Looking for a Pirate Adventure? You’re in luck! CBR has Pirate themed Rooms. Yo Ho… Yo Ho….
Does CBR have a pool? Glad you asked! CBR has 9, yes NINE pools! At the Centertown there is a fantastic Pirate themed pool, wading pool and whirlpool and there is one pool in each village. All the pools are heated and don’t forget a towel from your room as they are not available from the pool areas.
Each village has a beach area with lounge chairs, perfect for relaxing after a long day in the parks. But, don’t think about swimming in Barefoot Bay. No swimming allowed in there, plus, I’ve seen lots of turtles swimming around.
There are lots of activities to do at CBR. There are 3 playgrounds (Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad South), or go to Barefoot Bay Marina (it’s over by Centertown) and rent a small boat or bike. You can even do a fishing excursion!
CBR also has an arcade, hair wrapping, and laundry facilities.
I think you will enjoy your stay. Savvy?
