“Top quality Club La Costa resort”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

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!

Room Tip: IF there in winter months ask for one facing west as we lost the sun in out back yard at 3.30pm.

We booked our accommodation via Anil Gupta at E Management to stay at the Encantada Resort for 10 days. Everything went like clock-work. The codes on gates/house worked and the house was lovely. The pool heating on. We rented a 4 bed house/3 bathrooms (two with baths and one large walk in shower) with private pool for 3 adults and 2 kids. The place was perfect, beautifully furnished and well equipped. Everything supplied. There is a cleaning service at the end, but no surprises as advised upfront. You will not be disappointed and the PRICE is simply fantastic - we will never stay in a hotel again! Missing items from the kitchen were immediately supplied and storm damage that wiped our our TV/internet service for 24 hours, was rectified (and apologies sent with wine and beer!). The location is only 10 minutes from all the Disney resorts and there are lots of local shops/restaurants and services. There delivery service from local restaurants worked out well for those days when we were too tired to cook or go out. We were able to keep our waistline in order by cooking our own breakfast (avoiding breakfast buffet USA style) and cooking the odd evening meal. The washer /dryer were fab - though a tad noisy - but helped to keep our laundry up to date. There is a central clubhouse which was quite during our visit (low season). Nevertheless, our kids enjoyed the games room and we dared to swim in the outside pool and hot tub. The central lake was attractive but be warned that there are bugs flying around at dusk. We had a holiday of a lifetime: swam with dolphins, visited NASA, checked out the gators on nearby lakes, enjoyed Animal Kingdom and the Disney Halloween party. Highly recommend. Arthur family, France

Room Tip: Ask for house near clubhouse if you have kids - will be close to the outside playground and pool

Dear Richard ,

Thank you so much for such a glowing Review . My thanks go to the great staff that we have as well as our owners who have been upgrading their homes to increase the value offered to guests .
We regularly conduct staff trainings to enhance the Guest experience , we speak 11 languages and can offer many personal services to each guest to make the stay a very special and memorable one .
We have increased our staffing levels to enable us to provide world class customer service and of course a beautiful Resort that can be enjoyed in a peaceful ,well maintained and luxurious facility all very close to all attractions . You were quite right about the tremendous value of staying in your own private villa , the family unit can benefit from home cooked meals as well as the leisurely atmosphere of the Clubhouse, and its free facilities, that is now open 24 hours a day . I wish there were more resorts like this everywhere !

I really enjoyed staying here for our trip to Orlando in October 2012. It was close to everything. The condo was nice...had a great hot tub. The staff was fantastic! The pool great. The only complaint...like others have noted...is the mattresses must be VERY old. LOL...like sleeping in a valley so deep, it was hard to get out of in the morning. Other than that...was GREAT!!!

People always say avoid Orlando in the summer, for the most part I completely agree with them and those are the ones that probably dont have kids. However, if you do it make sure you have a swimming pool and A/C working nearby. In August, my wife and 4 year old made the pilgrimage. We chose Encatada because it was gated, accomodations looked good on the internet, had those things I mentioned above and not to mention we got a great deal with tripsdepot.com. The rooms are furnished nicely and the kitchen helps on getting a nice breakfast in the morning and not having to go out all the time. However, every single restuarant in the world is 5 to 10 minutes away max not to mention delivery service available.

We stayed on Lantana Lane. Our place had its own pool plus there ia clubhouse/pool. The lil liked the action of community pool and clubhouse game. Me and the mrs after he was wiped out liked to soak in ours with a few cold ones to cap the night. The only downside if you staying long there isnt daily cleaning service - it's extra.

Magic Kingdom was a Zoo! definitely spend extra for the Speed pass -its expensive but you will save time, energy and have a lot more fun! We loved Animal Kingdom especially since our son knows the names of the animals now. The Safari ride is pretty incredible with elephants, rhinos, zebra etc. The Finding Nemo show is fun too.

All in all, to do Orlando in the summer #1 stay cool and drinks lots of water and let Mickey do his thing. Hopefully, you might be to score the same deal too

Room Tip: Make sure you get accomodations with private pool especially if go in the summer with kids!

Encantada Resort is a very good place to stay if you are visiting Disney World. Only around 10-15 mins by car to all the different parks.Universal is a bit further away prob. 20 min. The premium outlet is also only around 15 mins away.
The house when we arrived was very welcoming and clean.
We only used the big pool by the club house once, but it was great fun for my daughter and there was enough sunbeds. (the poolwater was a bit cold though)
Everyone was very friendly at the resort, in the club house and in the office when we checked in. (just remember the office is closed sat. and Sun. eventhough it says "open" on the door.
Great there was a code on the door instead of a key so we did not need to worry about loosing it in the parks. It feels very secure at the Resort with the front gates and the gateman is happy to open it for you in the daytime when he is there.
There is a great view over the lake with a nice waterfountain. The first morning I thought it was raining until I pulled the blinds up and saw the lovely fountain to my relief. All in all we will be coming back to Encantada Resort.

Had a great stay in a two bedroom house which actually looked similar to the pictures that encantada advertises.

resort is gated, enter with a pin code.free parking possible right in front of the house

kitchen fully equipped, including sinkerator, electric can opener, oven, huge fridge, microwave, dishwasher. washing machine, dryer, ironing board, hot tub jacuzi in the garden. silent airconditioning

very nice sitting area with a large pioneer plasma tv, i would say 50 to 60 inch or so. blueray player also available

internet in clubhouse is free. in the house an additional 15 USD fee must be paid per week. although this should be free in the 21st century, the costs are acceptable and you get a good and stable Wifi connection which accommodates all of your gadgets

two bedrooms with good beds and separate bathrooms. unfortunately none had a bathtub

not all booking sites are entirely clear about the additional cleaning fee of USD 90 per stay. When you stay for a few days, like i did this will significantly add to the total costs. I would recommend that this is included in the price per night, so it is easily comparable to hotels or suites in the surroundings.

resort is close to all major parks and closest to walt disney world

Room Tip: note the additional cleaning fee when comparing the house with other types of accommodation
