The famed Caribe Royale was our 2018 host property in Orlando, Florida. Caribe Royale is  the largest all-suite convention hotel in Florida, with 1,335 suites, 150,000 square feet of meeting space.

Orlando International Airport (MCO)

Ground Transportation
Central Florida is a hotbed for Uber and Lyft.

The best price we can find for an airport shuttle to the Caribe Royale hotel is through Mears. If using Mears, you should then proceed to the Mears transportation counter on level one (1) in both Terminals A and B. The average wait time for the shuttle if you don’t have reservations is 30 minutes, and it does make additional stops. The cost is $37.00 round-trip.

A lot more on the world-class attractions nearby and services at the hotel can be found here.
