“Clean Basic Accomodations, Decent club house with pools.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

This is a 3.5 or so townhouse community with 3 and 4 bedroom town homes with private pools. The homes has basic amenities, no frills,no granite counter tops or any such things. Decent solid furniture and spacious. Bear in mind they are managed and owned individually. There is a nice club house with 2 pools and a few hot tubs. Plenty chairs tables and umbrellas! All were clean and kids loved. There are a lot of lizards on the property. Not sure if good or bad. My kids liked hunting for them, but for me it was gross. We also saw a snake on the property.They do have kids activities sometime in the afternoon but if you do not rent with a certain owners your kids will not be allowed unless you pay extra. Personally I felt that the place was a bit worn..there may be newer sections, I don't know. We were on Yellow Lantana. Our pool deck showed some wear and we found a few insects in private pool. The grounds were in fair shape but definitely not pristine. all in all a fair stay...we will probably pick another resort next time. I thought pets were not allowed but I saw someone with a dog . It looks like some people actually reside there permanently. There is a "lake" which has a water fountain. You could also fish in the lake. Nice feature. However, the lake was not all that clean looking. The clubhouse staff were pretty nice and helpful which is always great for service. The resort is about 15 minutes to Disney downtown and close to shopping and restaurants. It is gated and has security during the daytime.

There were five adults in our party so we stayed in a four bedroom villa with a pool. There were some minor issues that we had to deal with but the staff of E-management took care of everything in a timely matter. I would definitely recommend Encantada Resort as a place to stay while in Orlando.

Everything was wonderful, except that we thought it was wheelchair accessible and that wasnt case there were stairs up to the frt door so we had to leave it outside. The kids loved the pool, it was small but perfect for us! The little ones (4 & 5) could touch in the shallow end. The rooms upstairs were a little small too, but its was enough room for us. Its very close to Disney about 5mins. Target and Publix really close too. We used the kitchen alot and they had pots and pans, dishes, and everything you need (except a can opener go figure). All and all a great place to stay!

My family and I stayed at 3182 Yellow Lantana for a week in March, I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our stay at La Encantada.
They truly went above and beyond all expectations.
Recomiendo La Encantada! Es el lugar perfecto para pasarlo en familia.
Thanks "La Encantada" for a great stay, our trip was everything we had hoped for and more!

These properties are managed by different individuals, so the quality of the stay can vary. The townhouse we rented was clean, but we had to buy toilet paper, paper towels, and soap. The cookware was cheap and was not suitable for an induction stove. I have food allergies, so I have to cook and I had wished that I brought my pots. The beds were very uncomfortable, but I am picky. The only annoying thing that we had to endure was that the door handles kept falling off. I've stayed at a similar place at disney, and Disney resorts it is not, but for the price it was acceptable.

Not what the reviews made it out to be. The master bedroom bathroom didn't work well I guess that's why in one corner they had two brushes and one was covered in feces. I wanted to take a picture but I would of thrown up if I kept looking. Thankfully there was another bathroom. Shower door was broken. The pool was fine I mean at least the company got back to me on how to work it so I won't complain about that because it takes trial and error to get to the temp you prefer. I didn't expect a 5 star place but cleanliness is so important to me. Thanks to my husband he kept me from freaking out. I would rather spend more money and stay somewhere where it was nice and clean. At the end of the day you get what you pay for. I wish I would of gotten lucky and got one of them units people bragged about...

It rates a user rating of 5 against a two star hotel classification. There is no way this resort justifies a user rating of 5 on a 5 star expectation. The resort is very average for on-site amenities. The staff was friendly and did their jobs. The unit’s cleanliness was below average. The basics (toilets, sheets, etc.) were clean, but the vents on the refrigerator, the sliding door track and the vent area above the microwave were very dirty. The unit also had small ants all over the lower level. The unit's furniture looked nice, but was inexpensive and uncomfortable. The unit did not have clocks in the bedrooms, did not have steak knives, did not have beach/pool towels. Would I stay here versus the high cost of an onsite Disney property, yes, but this isn't Reunion so you should have the proper expectation prior to arrival.

Room Tip: Make sure the room has wireless internet if that is a priority for you. If yuo want to sue the priv...
