Admit to X means someone was accusing you of X and you confessed. It can also mean you performed the action of admitting toward X or in the presence of X - e.g. "I admitted to the police X" and both can be used at once: "I admitted to stealing to the police".

Admit X doesn't convey any of that additional information - it's simply stating you admitted X.

The correct one depends on what you want to say.

Enjoyed to X is invalid, enjoy only allows -ing verbals after it, not to X.
