“Amazing Beach!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is an older conversion property, but it is an ideal location if you are going on vacation to spend your time at the beach. It is on a small one-way drive that has very little car traffic, mostly walkers and bike riders use this road. One of the buildings sits right on the beach, the other buildings are just across this small road. Our unit was poolside and across the road (which was still as close or closer than you can park for a day at the beach). The resort provides a number chairs to be used at the beach, (first come first serve) and even over 4th of July, chairs were available.
There were fireworks just off shore so we could sit right here and watch them clearly.
A boardwalk is located a little way up the beach for gifts and restaurants but we mostly stayed in our room to eat. There are grills available for outdoor cooking.
We took a day to go to the Everglades, and a day to go to Flamingo Gardens, each 30 - 45 minutes away, the rest of the time we spent at the beach or the pool.
The room was clean with plenty of towels, dishes and pots and pans. The staff was great.
I will definitely return here for another vacation.
The water is clear and blue and the beautiful beach is quiet, large and clean. The most important things for any beach vacation.

Thank you to the staff at Enchanted Isle Resort for saving our vacation last week. My family and I had checked into another lodging in the area. After one night, we couldn't wait to get out of there. We have been to Florida many times over the past 20 years and we have never checked out of an inn early. Also, a big "thank you" to Donna, the owner of Manta Ray Inn. She told us about Enchanted Isle which is located next door to Manta Ray. Manta Ray had no vacancy during our visit. It also looked very nice!!
Back to Enchanted Isle Resort, we stayed in room 101 for 7 nights. It was a one bedroom condo right in the sand. Our condo faced the ocean with gorgeous palm trees, ocean sounds, and breezes. We couldn't have been happier with our room. We had a patio with nice, comfy chairs which looks directly at the ocean and beach. Our room was super clean, modern, quiet, and safe. There is a very nice pool as well which is a bonus for the area. Enchanted Isle provides very nice beach and lawn chairs. Plenty of beach towels and linens in the room. Housekeeping also does a towel exchange. The room was not cleaned daily but we actually prefer that as we like our privacy. The rooms are cleaned on Tuesdays and of course a deep cleaning before you check-in. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and helpful. The groundskeeper even checked on us to make sure that everything was to our liking. This property is several blocks to the Broadwalk and a short drive to grocery stores. The rate for this property was amazing!! We paid a total of a few hundred more than the place that we had checked out of early. Well worth the extra money. We got so much more and we were so much happier!! Love the Enchanted Isle Resort!!!

The reviews were spot on. Room was clean kitchen had everything and if you needed something fixed ask the front desk (between 8 and 5). The washer/dryers were fine. Public and Walmart were 5 min by car. Water taxi was walking distance and boardwalk walk also close. We enjoyed walking to the beach less than 1 min away with glass of wine and watching sun go down. Beach is very very quite and clean. Plenty of chairs.

This was a last minute RCI exchange. The condo was adequate for 2 but would have been snug for 2 additional adults. The location was fantastic, a few steps to the beach.You will be disappointed if you expect to stay at a room facing the beach because the majority of the rooms face the pool. The staff is very helpful and friendly but Enchanted Isle is not a resort with planned
activities. It does not have a Fitness Center or restaurant onsite.If you are looking for a place to just relax, enjoy the beach and hop on the Water Taxi to Ft. Lauderdale, this is the place to go.

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.

this was a lovely week. Large apartment, a little dated, but everything you could need. Plus free laundry which was a nice touch. We were in a block back from the beach but only seconds away. Free chairs and beds to take onto the sand, the pool was lovely. Would recommend and would definitely go back.

I have bern coming here for 16 yrs. and it keeps getting better and better. Staff is excellent. Rooms are clean and big. Beds are comfy. Beach is like being in a postcard.
Pool is warm and clean. Everything you can want is nearby, including Miami and South Beach ( only 20 minutes on turnpike). Family friendly, cost effective, safe, and lots of fun! Excellent vacation spot!
