My husband and I had the good fortune to spend two weeks at Enchanted Isle in May. Our first impression was positive due to the warmth and helpfulness of the staff checking us in. For our initial week, we had a 1 bedroom by the pool. The spaciousness was perfectly adequate, and the kitchen lacked nothing that we needed to prepare simple meals. Cleanliness was perfectly fine...mostly the rooms are on the older side, but the resort has clearly been conscientiously maintained over the years, and they are slowly doing upgrading. It was mere steps to cross the lane from Building 2 to the oceanfront. The beach here is truly outstanding. Wide, with beautiful turquoise water. It is cleaned daily. And we experienced zero crowding during our stay. Enchanted Isle is in a few-block stretch of probably more original resorts in this area, and the buildings are all very low-rise right here, which cuts down considerably on the crowds. There are beach lounge chairs for guest use. For the second week of our stay, we were tickled to have an oceanfront room in Building 1. Beautiful view. During our entire two weeks, the resort was amazingly quiet. And we met such friendly, interesting fellow-guests. I believe that Enchanted Isle attracts the sort of folks who value a low-key but high-quality seashore experience with caring staff, and it makes for a palpable feeling of relaxed enjoyment and friendliness. This place just has good vibes! And it is within easy driving of supermarkets, restaurants, etc., as well as a short walk to Hollywood's famous Broadwalk. This review would not be complete without special mention of the staff here. Every single staff member we interfaced with was warm, attentive, and conscientious, going the 'extra mile' to respond to whatever was requested. So we extend heartfelt thanks to Lisa, Mallory, Mark, Shirley...and the charming gentleman at the front desk whose name I never got...you were all wonderful! We definitely will try to come back!
