True Bliss! I had an amazing 3 days @ the Hacienda Encantada guest house. I needed to regroup in my life and this was the place to go! When I arrived I was surrounded by the beauty of nature. I was able to see the Arenal Volcano from relaxing in a hammock on the patio. I layed there breathing it... More

I just wanted you all to know what a great place Encantada Guest House is! My wife Kristin and I recently left our home in Newtown Connecticut to visit Costa Rica and we had a wonderful trip. The Hacienda is in an absolutely gorgeous setting, with beautiful views of the nearby volcano, the jungle below, and the mountains above. It... More

We had such a wonderful stay at Hacienda Encantada! The house is really nicely located - beautiful volcano view, very close to the little village of El Castillo (which has a lot to do!), close to the entrance to the National Park/hot springs/village of La Fortuna. The house, itself, is amazing. We immediately felt comfortable there even though we were... More

I stayed six nights with 3 friends. We loved how quiet and beautiful the house and property were. Everywhere you look is enchantment and beauty. We loved being able to cook our meals in the efficient kitchen. It is fun to eat out at the many fine options, but the hustle, bustle gets tiresome and enjoying simple, relaxing meals at... More

I loved my little corner of paradise for the week I was there. The views of Lake Arenal in one direction and of the volcano in another were sublime. Tucked away in a secluded corner of the jungle, the guest house is surrounded by howler monkeys making their presence known. Yet the lodging is close enough to El Castillo and... More

We stayed 2 nights at Encantada Guest House while our daughter visited us in Costa Rica. The house is wonderful, clean and spacious, and the grounds are just amazing! We had birds, animals and beautiful weather. The view of Volcan Arenal is spectacular and unobstructed. There are eateries in the area, as well as the volcano observatory and several hot... More

Our family of four, with college age kids visited Hacienda Encantada December 18-21, 2013. The house is charming and the grounds are amazing. As a garden enthusiast, I really enjoyed the diversity and color of plantings surrounding the house. Hummingbirds constantly flittered around the gardens as do butterflies and birds. The private trail down to the creek rivals any rainforest... More

Beautiful location, great accommodations, super clean. My kids loved all the wildlife, and exploring the rainforest trails. And I got to relax in a hammock and reconnect with a book while enjoying the great view. Also having a full kitchen saved us a lot of money on food that we then spent on local attractions. Totally would recommend it. Great... More
