Encantada -The Official CLC World Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We have just arrived home after a 2wk stay (28th Dec-11th Jan) at The Encantada Resort. The two bed town house was superb! We were so impressed with the house, facilities, comfort, cleanliness,size of the property. We have two children and we had so much room in the house. We had clean linen offered to us twice whilst we stayed, no clean though but that was not a problem really as we spent most of our times in the parks we were hardly there. Which in one respect was such a shame as the house was so lovely and the resort and pool so well maintained and clean it was a shame we were not there more. The resort was only a 10 min drive to Disney parks and 25 mins from Universal. Fantastic restaurants near by to try such as Bahama Beeeze and Millers steak house and so many more. The house we stayed In at Encantada was so well equipped in the kitchen area with a fabulous cooker, microwave ,dishwasher it would have been very easy to cook and feel very much at home but we chose to eat out every night. The patio and Hot tub is lovely and very relaxing after a 8am start to get to the parks and not getting back till 9-10 pm most nights!! We are so sad to be back home as we have had the holiday of our dreams it was just out of this world!! Without a shadow of a doubt we are booking to go back and I would only want to stay at The Encantada resort as it was that good!!

Stayed at the Encantada 19th Dec for 2 weeks booked through Travel City Direct. We booked a 2 bedroom Townhouse with hot tub, it was better than we had hoped. There were little extra's such as dish washer tablets,dish clothes, tea towels, washing powder along with tea, coffee, sugar sachets to get you started. It was spotlessly clean and the appliances all looked brand new. As we were there for 2 weeks, housekeeping came exactly 7nts after arriving, leaving even more towels and new bath robes! Would not hesitate to book here again as it's also close to Disney and Universal. It took an hour to get to Busch Gardens, well worth a visit if you like rollercoasters. We used the swimming pool twice at the Encantada and again it was spotless, warm with plenty of sunbeds. Just be aware all the theme parks get extremely busy and it's well worth getting to the parks as they open to get your fast passes, as by 9.30am some of the new rides had already filled there quota for the day leaving long queues.

We stayed 9th -23rd December 2013.
The entrance gate is un-manned so a little confusing when you first arrive, there is a small intercom on the wall of the building before you reach the gate, press for reception and they will let you in, from then on they give you a 4 digit code to open the gate.
Check in was quick and easy, we were given a map with our house marked on it, and 2 four digit codes, one for the house, one for the gate so no keys to loose.
We were in Yellow Lantra Lane, very quiet, ample parking and we backed on to trees so very private in the screened patio and hot tub. (Even No’s back onto trees, odd No’s the central lake with a path close to the houses).
At the top of the road there is a gas station and several fast food outlets and just down the road is a Publix and Super Target supermarkets. Disney is only 15 – 30 minutes’ drive, depending on the park you are visiting, Animal Kingdom the closest. 30 – 40 minutes’ to Universal Studios and Sea World.
The house was clean, spacious, well laid out and well equipped.
We used the washer and dryer and racks were available to air dry clothes. The air conditioner was easy to control, we are from England so don’t set it as low as Americans, set to 70 when we arrived, we set it to 78, it was record high temperatures while we were there so it did ‘kick in’ to keep it comfortable. You do have to keep the patio doors closed in the air con is on though. It was nice to have a CD player in the living room.
The hot tub was lovely and warm, we only used it a couple of times so we felt guilty about all the energy used but you can’t turn it off.
The double bed was huge and quite comfortable, good water pressure in the shower, big flat screen TV. The twin beds were very comfortable, we like a soft bed, so the kids (13 & 20) slept in the master and we had the twin beds. They were happy as they got the TV.
The only down side was there was no bath in the property, both bedrooms had showers, very good showers but due to 2 of our party having dry skin conditions a soak in a bath with oilatum, especially after waterparks would have been beneficial. One of our party could not use the hot tub as there was no bath to soak in afterwards.
We have previously stayed in Disney Resorts, Port Orleans and Saratoga Springs but with the kids getting older the extra space in a town house was a much better, and better value. I’ve never stayed in this type of resort before, I’ve read reviews from others who have and they have been mixed but for the money I was very happy with what we got. A 2 bedroom villa in Saratoga Springs would be five times the price!
We never used the pool & gym, both looked good but no time! The grounds were well kept as well, no mess, pretty flowers etc. Although this is a time share resort apart from an invitation to a welcome meeting (that we didn't attend) in our welcome pack there was no unwanted pressure to tour or buy.

Room Tip: Yellow Lantra even numbers. especially 2052 - 3058 & 3076 - 3094.

I can't find a single thing bad to say about Encantada! Loved every minute of my stay here! We spent a lot of time around the pool area which was lovely and clean. The poolside entertainment was great and there was always something for the kids to do.

WOW!!!
I have just returned home with my wife and 10 year old son from the Encantada resort after staying 2 weeks over Christmas to visit the Disney parks and can honestly say its one of the best places I have ever stayed at.
It's location could not have been better situated approx 15 mins from the parks and is great for local restaurants with a wide choice for everyone.
The house itself was immaculate !!!! Like a show home. Very well presented large kitchen , lounge area massive TV 2 big bedrooms both en suite large patio area with hot tub which was great to relax in at the end of a day round the Disney parks.
Communal pool area was excellent with 2 pools and jacuzzi and even golf buggy pick up to take you there and back to your house.
We went with another family our friends who also loved this place and the kids had a great time. I cannot recommend this place enough and will be back at sometime in the future couldn't fault it!!!
Holiday great! Place fantastic! Disney AMAZING!!!!

Stayed at the Encantada for 2 weeks 18 nov in a two bedroomed town house and have to say that from check in to check out we can honestly say it was the best holiday we have had in Florida. The house was immaculate everything you needed, spacious and we absolutely loved the jacuzzi which we used morning and was great when we came back in the evening. Facilities were 1st class with 2 swimming pools, clubhouse and free Wi fi which we used everyday. Staff were really helpful and when my husband asked for a lend of a spanner and screw driver they were left at reception for us within a couple hours. The only fault we had was we had to leave there!!!! Will we come back Definately without a doubt and would recommend the Encantada to anyone 1st class in everything. We stayed at no 3055 White Orchid Drive. X Sharon &Paul Medlam Wales, Uk.
