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

We are familiar with Casa del Encanto from our many trips and extended stays in the area. We were excited to spend some time at the luxurious candle lit inn on our most recent trip, which included two grandmothers, two teenagers, my husband and myself. The amazing thing about slipping into Laura's world is that it is so welcoming and... More

Arriving in Barra de Potosi and looking for a place to stay a few nights I met a local person and asked if he knew of a spot. He took me to Laura's B and B in the village. What a treasure in a local village. A very unique experience to be able to be immerse in the local culture.... More

Laura's colorful B&B immediately makes you feel welcome and at home, truly part of the family. The rooms are twice as big as I imagined from the pictures. Breakfast filled me up .. pitchers of fresh squeezed orange juice and plates of fresh fruits and fresh bread and pastries and granola and yogurt (luckily you can walk or swim alot... More
