Casa del Encanto is a cool green oasis in a bustling little village of Barra de potosi. Donia Laura is a warm and wonderful host. She is an american expat of 25 years with intimate local knowlege and connections. The rooms are amazing. Check google images for Casa Del Encanto. For me a 10.

Our stay in Casa del Encanto was the highlight of our trip to Mexico mainly thanks to Laura. First her place is absolutely charming, then the rooms are huge, peacefull, comfortable and affordable. Besides, Laura helped us to organise a kayak trip to the Lagoon at dawn with a local guide and that was a fantastic experience. Laura is an... More

What a wonderful discovery. Casa del Encanto is enchanting, relaxing and lovingly decorated. The owner/operator Dona Laura is very accommodating, fun to talk to, helpful in many ways, and a great source of knowledge about the area, including politics, tourism, and local history. My friends and I stayed at two hotels in Zihuatenajo before visiting Barra de Potosi and Casa... More

A nice quiet place well away from the buzz of Zihuatanejo, but Zihua is a short trip away if you want to go for a cruise. If you looking for laid-back, quiet, and friendly, this is it. English is not widely spoken in Barra, but somehow it all seems to work out. Laura is a relaxed and accommodating hostess who... More

My 14 year old son and I stayed at Casa del Encanto for 2 weeks. I gave it 4 stars for the graciousness of host and the ambience she has created there. There is a sort of magical feel about the grounds with her many gurgling water fountains and the plethora of lights and candles that are lit each evening.... More

Laura's place is fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and secretly don’t want anyone to know how great it is for fear it will be all booked up the next time I want to go! The decor is amazing with all the little Mexican touches. Love how the whole place is lit up with lights and candles at night,... More

Casa del Encanto is a great place to stay. Me and my wife had a wonderful relaxing week there between Christmas and New Year. Laura was very welcoming. She know a lot about the community and provided us with excellent advice and translation for our scuba, birdwatching, snorkeling and fishing as well as great suggestions for beach places. I am...

I had a wonderful experience at Casa del Encanto this past spring. It was my first accommodation after arriving in Barra de Potosi (also for the first time), and I was struck by the unique charm of each room and the welcoming feel of the common areas and outdoor patio space. It's a peaceful place to relax, read a book,... More
