The Caribe Royale Orlando Resort, located at the gateway to the Walt Disney World Resort, has finished renovations on one of three of its hotel towers and last weekend we had the pleasure of being a few of the first guests to stay in these fresh, new one-bedroom suites.
Caribe Royale Orlando Resort Review with Renovated Suite Photos
Our last stay here was a Valentine’s Day getaway twenty years ago when the resort was fairly new so we were eager to see what the remodel would look like.
This TripAdvisor award winning resort has three hotel towers that encircle a gorgeous grotto pool. The towers feature one bedroom suites that sleep up to six guests.
Every guest gets the “Royale” treatment at Caribe Royale, where richly appointed one bedroom suites
and recently renovated two bedroom villas make everyone feel like a VIP in spacious luxury.
Caribe Royale Orlando Resort Renovated Suites
The 1,215 generous one-bedroom suite accommodations feature a private bedroom and separate living area, ergonomically designed work space and a large bathroom.
Designed in a classic Floridian style inspired by the Captiva Island-based works of American painter and graphic artist Robert Rauschenberg, the complete suite renovations involve all hard and soft goods.
From floors to bathrooms to window treatments to light fixtures, plus enhancements to guest preferred amenities, including 55” flat screen TVs (which pair with smart phones to enable guests to log into their personal accounts reaching over 1,000 streaming apps), mini fridges, coffee makers and more electrical outlets.
My personal favorite feature was the complete and total blackout curtain in the bedroom.
Need more room to spread out?
Caribe Royale offers 120 recently renovated two-bedroom, two-bath lakeside villas. Each is uniquely appointed with preferred amenities that include a spacious master suite with soaking tub, an additional guest room with two queen beds, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room and a private screened lanai.
Florida resident rates start at $260 for two-bedroom villas, a sweet savings off regular rates of $349. Guests can relax at the hotel’s large heated outdoor swimming pools with waterfalls and a 75-foot waterslide, plus two hot tubs, or invigorate in a 3,500 sq. ft. fitness center, a lighted court for basketball and tennis, yoga and indoor cycling classes, and a 1.5 mile running trail.
Caribe Royale Orlando Resort Dining Options
From custom crafted menus and decadently inspired meals to dining al fresco with tropical drinks by the resort’s sparkling pool and waterfall, the Caribe Royale has something for everyone.
The Venetian Chop House, honored with AAA’s prestigious Four Diamond Award, is an epicurean’s delight.
The restaurant features classic steakhouse traditions complemented by a refined selection of reserved wines.
I was pleased to discover a dedicated vegan entree on the menu.
This is the Grilled Portobello Mushroom Steak ($28) topped with kung pao vegan bean curd and chimichurri sauce.
The casual Tropicale restaurant offers all day dining. For lighter fare, Café 24 is open round-the-clock.
Guests can enjoy outside dining and beverages at the ultra-hip Calypso’s Pool Bar and Grille.
I enjoyed some chips and salsa on our pool day with a local craft draft.
The Loft Lobby Bar is the perfect place to end the day.
Java’s Coffee Café gets guests going in the morning with espressos, lattes and express breakfast snacks. Room service is also available 24 hours a day.
“Our mission is to treat guests to exceptional levels of comfort and hospitality through a spirit of extraordinary generosity that brings a smile to their face during their stay and long after they leave,” explained Managing Director Amaury Piedra.
Caribe Royale considers the $125 million renovation an investment in its mission.
