TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Stayed here for the second time in April 2015. Checked in with a minimum of fuss. Arrived at our room (1306) in building 1 but were slightly disappointed. Not a bad room, but nowhere near the... Read more quality we had experienced last time round. Our room was not among the refurbished rooms, but judging by the building work going on two rooms down the corridor it was soon going to be. Decor was tired, there were patches of wallpaper covering what I could only assume were defects in the wall, and the A/C and fridge were very noisy. We reported this to reception and were told that while they were full at the time, they would see if an upgrade became available later. Two days later, the phonecall arrived that we could move to a refurbished room (1302), and what a difference it made! The new room was exquisite, with brand new furnishings and electricals and a great view of the lake. If all the rooms are refurbished to that standard the Enclave will become one of the best hotels in the area. The staff handled all the moving of our luggage while we were out, and everything was in order when we arrived at the new room. As a guest of the hotel, we got a free "Grab and Go" breakfast each morning, with an optional $3.99pp per day upgrade to full breakfast. The free breakfast was not quite as good as last time, as fruit and cereal are no longer available without the upgrade, but there is still toast and pastries, tea/coffee and OJ available. There are waffles available as part of the cooked breakfast and I strongly recommend them. The hotel has an in-house Pizza Hut Express which now offers Room Service (for a small fee). The choice is limited, and prices quite steep, but there are daily specials available so ask about them on check-in. The hotel shop is convenient but extremely pricey. I was charged more than $12 for a small can of beer, bottle of sprite and small water which would have cost about $5 in Walgreens up the road. Leisure facilities are very good: two outdoor pools and one 24-hour indoor pool, all with very good jacuzzis and an indoor gym. The pool water is warm, and the jacuzzis are quite hot (but not uncomfortable). Around the hotel, International drive is 50 yards away and has regular buses to SeaWorld, Premium Shopping Outlets and the Florida Mall (all via LYNX bus 42), and LYNX 8 traces I-drive from top to bottom. Walgreens, KFC, Burger King and Starbucks are within 10 mins walk, and Walmart is a 25 minute walk away (reception can call you a taxi there too). Disney's Magic Kingdom and Downtown Marketplace are reachable by LYNX bus 8 to SeaWorld then LYNX 50 from there (one ticket, ask for a transfer or preorder a Fixed Route pass). The hotel also offers free transport to Universal via the concierge at reception, but book your ticket the day before as they can get very busy. I would strongly recommend this hotel but would advise prospective guests to request a deluxe room or refurbished room if available. The staff were very friendly and happy to bend-over-backwards to accommodate our requests. Read less
Myself and my two teenage sons stayed here April 22-29th. I was a little concerned before arriving with the mixed reviews on the apartments. But I am am very happy to say that we were given a fully... Read more renovated 2 bedroom apartment on the 5th floor (1505) Very nice and exactly what I was hoping for. Perfect amount of space and everything you needed in the kitchen. Plenty of towels in both bathrooms. Loved the large pool and my sons enjoyed swimming every night after a long hot day spent at the parks. Staff were very friendly and having a free shuttle saved me gas and parking fees at parks. Would definitely stay at The Enclave if I come back to Orlando. The only negative things I have to say are the reviews were correct on the cleaning of the apartments....I couldn't imagine keeping on employees who were as lazy as the maid who cleaned before we got there. The floors were not swept/mopped..all surface were not wiped...I brought Lysol wipes and wiped everything myself...the dirty pair of underwear on the balcony I left....maybe the next cleaner will actually go out and see them...I did not have any maids come into the apartment for the 8 days we were there for the simple reason that when I checked in I had to sign a form saying if any money or valuables went missing from my rooms Enclave was NOT responsible. In my opinion if ANYTHING went missing from my apartment it would be because an Enclave employee took it. Simple as that. At the end of the day it was a great trip...great location....I felt safe walking to the restaurants close by and would stay here again. Read less
