Back in November we were lucky enough to visit the Encore Club Resort clubhouse to check out all the facilities from a guests point of view. My friends and family were visiting from the UK so all 6 adults and two 2 year olds spent the day at the Encore Club.
When you first enter the Encore Resort Clubhouse you have to register at the Concierge desk. From there a member of staff will give you a quick tour around the clubhouse and answer any questions you have. We headed straight for the splash pool and waterslides to have some fun!
There are lifeguards around the kids splash pool, main pool and also at the top and bottom of the water slides so safety is very important.
Encore Club Waterslide
There are 4 waterslides, the blue one is a ringo or tube slide which can be ridden in a single or double ring. This was really good and a little faster than I expected but very smooth and there are no big drops in it which is what I was expecting.
The green water slide is on the top deck and only for the brave as it features a vertical drop. As you can see from the video below this is very fast but great fun!
The yellow and orange slides were great as you they have a count down and you can race against your friends and family to see who can do it the quickest. The thought of going down head first was a little scary at first but I soon got used to it and couldn't wait to go again.
We really enjoyed the Encore Club pool area and water park. It was really nice to be able to order food and drink around the pool. You get the feeling you are staying at a 5 star resort but then have the privacy and space of your own vacation villa just minutes away which I really like.
Having seen the Encore Club Resort during construction back in Jan 2016, and now seeing it complete I can honestly say they have done a fantastic job and would highly recommend this community to all guests.
The Encore Club villas range from 5 - 11 bedrooms so you need a large group to go with you. But I am sure once your family and friends see the water slides and clubhouse you won't have a problem filling up the house!

Whilst at the Encore Club we ordered from the Finns Cafe menu and had our food brought to us down by the pool in the shaded eating area. I had the Mahi sandwich which was really good and highly recommended. Click here for Finns Cafe menu.
Encore Club Home Delivery
One of the great services that the Encore Club offers and what makes it different from other Orlando vacation rental communities is the home delivery. You can order food from the restaurants and have it delivered to your Encore Club villas.
Home delivery is available from 11am - 9pm everyday, all you need to do is call 321 710 8164 from your Encore Club villa and they will deliver direct to your door. One thing to remember is they do add a 20% service charge for this but it's still a great option if you are feeling lazy. Click here for the Encore Club Home Delivery menu.
