The Encantada Resort will have your family feeling right at home. Book one of the 75 two- and three-bedroom townhomes and enjoy twin, queen and king beds, sofa beds, fully equipped kitchens, washers and dryers, flat-screen TV’s, DVD players and Wi-Fi accessibility. The resort has multiple swimming pools, a playground and a game room for onsite fun, but is also located just six miles from Walt Disney World. The Team Marina kids’ club also schedules activities for children 4 and older. A Cyber Cafe, plus a bar with pool tables, are great for snacks and beverages any time of the day, though a Walmart is just five minutes away and can supply a family with all the cooking essentials they’ll need during their stay. The resort has a fitness center and the front desk is open 24 hours per day.

The rooms are spacious and the staff friendly, however, the level of cleanliness is lacking. There was an actual mushroom growing from the edge of the shower tray in one bathroom. The skirting was covered in dust. Perhaps the least appealing part was the rust stains (I suspect they're rust) all over the patio floor. It looked disgusting. Also, the hot tub worked intermittently which was frustrating. Foolishly we did not complain to management. In hindsight I should have given them the opportunities to rectify their mistakes but we used the house as merely a place to sleep whilst we explored Florida. I should also note that the toilet in the master bedroom was continuously keep us awake by filing up all night due to an internal leak. The grounds are lovely and the rooms have such potential but CLC are obviously not investing enough into their properties to make it a pleasant stay. Would not likely stay there again and after a series of issues with CLC we will not be continuing our trial membership once it has expired.
Lovely pool area - 2 pools with 2 spas overlooking the lake. Relaxing and very quiet November time
Very pretty setting.
Friendly reception staff.
We ventured out most days so didn’t use the central facilities very much.
A couple of restaurants in walking distance, need a car to get around here though.
We had maintenance issues with the private house we rented, however this was nothing to do with CLC World.
