Staying at El Encanto is like visiting the owner, James Vitale, who is a very hospitable and interesting host. If you want to spend time in a small town away from tourist traps, this is the place. Personally I like to be alone on a vacation, but I found myself spending time with the other guests in this place because... More

We visited El Encanto for a month last winter and enjoyed the laid-back vibe of the place. In fact, we were the only visitors in the entire apartment hotel! It was almost too quiet. Night falls early in Mexico, and there was absolutely nothing to do after sunset, other than sit out on the patio and battle the no-see-ums. (There... More

I first went to El Encanto for a 7-day yoga retreat four years ago. We did yoga on the flat rooftop overlooking the Pacific Ocean and huge trees full of Magnificent Frigatebirds. On the last night, owner Jim Vitale invited the group to a costume ball in his open-air living room set in the rainforest. We got to choose costumes... More

Unabashedly fervent fans of El Encanto and its host, Jim Vitale, for three successive years and counting, this couple recommends it for those seeking something quiet and different. Located on a rural "working beach", sandwiched between the charming village of Santa Cruz and a private resort, El Encanto is like a garden bed and breakfast. Equipped with an outdoor kitchen...

This hotel is where I have been going for the last five years and each year I can't wait to return. Jim Vitale, the owner, is a wholly unique person who is a wonderful and gracious host and a brilliant artist. You see his works all through the grounds and in the rooms and in the enchanted ambience that he... More

I stayed at El encanto for four nights in Febuary and enjoyed the peace, quiet, birdwatching, lots of butterflies and clean air of Santa Cruz de Miramar. I also slept on the best bed in a week. I came by bus from Vallarta after knowing about this place for a few years. Jim was great a host. He took to... More
