Has been open less than 2 years and Club La Costa (CLC) are in the process of finishing the resort. It is a gated community with a mixture of owned, holiday lets or timeshare for CLC clients.
We have stayed at CLC resorts in the UK, Spain and Tenerife and can say that the two bed town house that we stayed in, in white orchids, was top notch and at the highest end of CLC quality that we have become accustomed to. It had everything we needed with fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and dryer. Both bedrooms had en suite shower rooms and walk in wardrobes. Plenty of storage, TV's in every room, Ipod players and dvd player too. It had a yard with mesh curtain covering a hot tub, recliners, tables and chairs. As CLC clients we were grateful of the welcome pack.
Check in at clubhouse was easy and informative. Buy your attraction tickets there or at least get advice on what is best for you.
Just a tip on getting there from Orlando Airport. Get off the I-4 at exit 64 and follow Magic Kingdom signs whilst staying on the 192 West. Go past the 4 mile marker and pass Olive garden and Super Target on left, then past Toll road 429. Just past next traffic lights turn left at Seven Eleven gas station and McDonalds into Secret Lake Drive. Encantada is at the bottom. You can guess we had a bit of a tour. Do not follow the Kissimmee sign as you come off the I-4.
Located 35 minutes from the Airport, 20 minutes from Premium outlets and Disney and 75 minutes from Busch Gardens or Kennedy Space Centre it is a very comfortable place.
Did I mention the beds? The giant double was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in!
Still some work to be done to get a proper resort atmosphere as most people are out all day. We were there out of season and it wasn't often sunbathing weather but unlike other CLC resorts it does not yet have a restaurant for evening dining. It does however have clubhouse activities daily, a bar and snack cafe with free wi-fi in the clubhouse and $15 per week in houses.
Top quality and we had a great time in mega comfortable accommodation. Looking forward to this being finished when we return in due course as we want to see what the new CLC resort in Kissimmee Old town, Regal Oaks, will be like.
Is there anywhere to eat nearby? Wow, just go onto the 192 and there are a thousand eateries within a couple of miles, no exaggeration. We will put our favourites on here.
Hope you enjoy Encantada like we did!
