Caribe Royale Orlando

The Caribe Royale Orlando is a AAA Four Diamond hotel located on the doorstep of Walt Disney World Resort.

The Caribe Royale Orlando is only a 13-minute drive to the entrance of Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

Inside this luxury resort, you’ll find a spa and wellness center, a AAA Diamond restaurant and rum bar, luxe villas and suites, and more. The Caribe Royale Orlando also has an eco-certification from the Florida Green Lodging Program.

Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress

Nestled on the edge of a picturesque lake, this hotel offers its guests an idyllic haven that boasts breathtaking views of a protected nature preserve. Even better — it’s only 15 minutes away from Disney World. When you’re not in the parks, you can spend leisure time around the hotel's magnificent outdoor heated pool or explore the lake on paddle boats, kayaks and canoes.

Located just outside the Disney Parks complex, the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress is another great selection for travelers who plan to spend their days visiting the parks.
