We stayed in the luxury suite with private pool, which was screened by plants and the building to provide privacy from the other villas. Everything about the villas was rustic and homey, whilst having all the mod-cons that you would expect. However, what really set it apart was the service - from sorting out very good deals for snorkelling etc,... More

The Villas are great- the hosts and employees are super. Really great people. The first floor apartment was ours for about 11 days. The kitchen area is small, but we found it to be sufficient for us. We cooked many of our meals there. As has been said- the peacocks and dogs (at times) can be noisy for people who... More

We stayed at the Villas El Encanto with our two sons for two nights at the end of April. We stayed in the upper apartment, which had two rooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. When we first arrived, I was a little apprehensive about what the quality of the accommodation would be like... More

We enjoyed so much our stay at Villas El Encanto. Staff is very friendly and diligent. Apartments are spacious, charming and clean. The tropical garden is wonderful including two beautiful peacocks. Even though the villa is in the city, the place is very quiet and not too far from supermarkets, restaurants, dive centers, etc. Down side is that they don’t... More

Spent 9 days at El Encanto. Our experience was better than we could have imagined. Ana and Alvaro are fantastic hosts, very helpful when you need them but very respectful of everyone's privacy. The room was beautiful, clean and the housekeeper fantastic. The garden is a lush jungle and the common areas are wonderful. Would recommend to anyone. A very... More

My husband and I recently spent 7 nights at Villas El Encanto. Whenever we travel, we seek out small, locally-owned accommodations and Villas El Encanto was exactly what we were hoping for. Alvaro provided personal attention to our every request from arranging a private bird watching experience to booking the Atlantis submarine. When we were late leaving on foot for... More

This was our best stay in Quintana Roo. Ana has maintained her place really really well. We felt like we were staying in the middle of a beautiful jungle, imagine peacocks hanging out in your backyard! The lounge area is so relaxing with hammocks and nest rests. We had the room with a private pool, couldn't have asked for a... More

The art gallery at Villas El Encanto has an amazingly eclectic assortment of decor, art and wearables. Wonderful handmade jewelry, tile goods, pillows and vintage tribal are displayed in an updated setting. Everywhere you look has something pleasing, and tempting. Ana and her colleagues have cultivated a choice boutique on Cozumel. The lush grounds of El Encanto are a prelude... More
