My stay at Enchanted Isle was for two wonderful weeks in February. This place is comprised mostly of timeshares, but rooms can be rented weekly, space permitting. The resort has four buildings, each having two floors. Building One is right on the beach, with units facing the ocean and some facing the heated pool. Building Two has all its units facing the pool. Buildings Three and Four are not directly on the ocean, but the ocean can be viewed from their balconies.
The place is dated, but the proximity to the ocean is unsurpassed. You are literally steps away from the beach. Chairs are provided along with beach towels. There are tables set up on a small grassy area facing the ocean, and propane grills located near the pool. The rooms are well equipped, with all you would need to comfortably enjoy your stay. Again, things are dated, but unless it is raining, you are not spending massive amounts of time in your unit. Cleaning is done on Tuesdays, and Saturdays, but towels can be exchanged several times a week for clean ones. There are washers and dryers on site, with set times during the day that they can be used. The pool is situated right outside building Two, and is set to a nice, warm temp, which invites its use when the wind or outside air makes it hard to sit near the ocean. The floors of each unit are tiled, which makes it so much easier to keep clean. However, in our unit on the first floor of building Three, you could hear the movement of the guests upstairs.
The road between buildings One and Two is connected to the Broadwalk that runs for two miles along the ocean. The Broadwalk is a bricked walkway that is always busy with people getting in their exercise. It has restaurants, shops, and even an outdoor theatre.
This place is rated high for its ocean proximity. It is not like the Westin, Marriott, or other established hotel chains. It is small, homey, and just right for those not concerned with modern conveniences. It is charming, with an atmosphere of close friends coming together for set times during the year. If you can get a room, enjoy the location and warm Florida sun.
