DMI Hotel Review
Caribe Royale Orlando All-Suite Hotel &
In a sentence, the Caribe Royale may be described as: "The perfect site for meetings or conventions for groups from between 10 to 4,500 who may want to bring their families!"
The Caribe Royale boasts a central Orlando location. Getting there is simple. A regularly scheduled airport shuttle at Orlando Airport picks up passengers and takes them just 18 miles to the Caribe Royales lush 45 acre, all-suite resort and convention center. The Caribe Royale is conveniently located just minutes from all major Disney attractions, EPCOT Center, Sea World and Universal Studios. Guests enjoy taking the "no-parking no-hassle" complimentary shuttle which runs on a regular schedule.
Caribe Royale is an independently owned property originally built in 1996. The carefully thought-out site plan provides easy walking distances from the lobby, sleeping rooms and convention center surrounding a lushly landscaped pool and fitness area. A recent addition in 2003 to the adjoining convention center increased its size to 150,000 square feet. This state-of-the-art enhancement includes 31 breakout rooms, 3 ballrooms (40,000; 26,000 and 6,400 sq. ft all have 25 ft ceilings), executive boardrooms and the latest in audio-visual and lighting systems.
The three towers, which envelop the pool area, house a total of 1,218 one-bedroom suites. All of these rooms have separate living room areas with wet-bars, microwaves and two telephone lines with a working space. Or, one can retreat to one of the 120 Lakeside Villas. These two-bedroom, two bath suites have full kitchens and are perfect for smaller in-suite meetings for up to 16 people.
For fitness and relaxation, all lobbies lead to the tropically landscaped free-form pool: the focal point of the resort. Enjoy the cascade which flows over rocks into the pool where one can swim from the bar, to a 75 foot water slide or over to a hidden Jacuzzi or relax on the sun-deck after a work-out in one of the two fitness facilities.
Five varieties of restaurants offer a range of dining experiences from formal to casual within the resort complex or have your private meals catered by the in-house banquets department. Come during the busy season January through April or when it's a bit more slow-paced: June-August.
