Reviews of Disney Caribbean Beach ResortCaribbean Beach Resort
Bike rentals are available at Barefoot Bay, a 45-acre lake with white, sandy beaches. If you're so inclined, you can take a foot or pedal-powered trip around a scenic 1.4-mile lakeside promenade.
"Finding Nemo"-themed rooms were added in 2008, and if you've got an aspiring buccaneer in your party, an overnight in a Pirate-themed room (located furthest from the resort hub) is sure to please, if you don't mind a hike.
When it's time for a theme park break, parents can pull up a chair at the Banana Cabana and sip a fruity umbrella drink, or hang out in a hammock on a beach and watch the sun go down over Barefoot Bay. On select days, kids can ship off on a pirate-themed Adventure Cruise, one of the best kids-only excursions offered on Disney properties.

Beyond a tropical flair, what sets this resort apart from others is the availability of themed accommodations. Standard rooms sleep four, plus a crib for guests under the age of 3, and are located in six two-story island villages. Since 2008, most standard rooms have been refurbished in a "Finding Nemo" theme. The subtle design is a nice departure from the former flowery décor, and features images of tropical fish and fauna in bedcovers, wall borders and carpets. Pirate-themed rooms debuted in 2009 (surcharge) and are outfitted in full privateer gear, from beds that look like pirate ships to privacy curtains imprinted with skull and sword images.
Rooms located closest to Old Port Royale (Trinidad North and Martinique) are considered "preferred" accommodations and come with a surcharge for convenience (yes, it's definitely worth it), while Barbados and Trinidad South (the block where pirate rooms are located) are furthest from the resort hub, leaving families with a choice of a pirate experience or proximity.
All guestrooms feature two queen beds or a king bed (surcharge), a TV and complimentary Wi-Fi. A table with two chairs provides a comfortable spot for in-room dining, and in standard rooms, a storage bench with a back offers additional seating. In addition, rooms contain a coffeepot and a mini-fridge. A vanity area contains two sinks, as opposed to the one available at Value resorts, and a privacy curtain separates it from the bedroom, meaning part of your party can shower early while others sleep in (assuming they're not light sleepers). Complimentary Pack 'N Plays and bed rails can be delivered upon request, and connecting rooms are available.
If you want to see water, expect to pay a surcharge. Although you can request a "lake" or a "pool" view, a specific outlook can't be guaranteed.
