We picked this spot for our Honeymoon destination and it met all our expectations. We were warmly welcomed by Ismael. Every morning Carlos took great care of us and made us feel at home during breakfast. Maria & Javier were a wealth of knowledge and made the afternoons feel like we were in our own private oasis. Jose provided great... More

This Hotel is magical. From the Staff, to the rooms, to the private beach. The food is also very very good, all fresh, all prepared wonderfully. This is the place that I will come back to for years. We had such a wonderful time. Being greeted every day by the staff (they remember your first name) is so nice. It... More

My husband and I were just there last week and stayed in Mar. We loved everything about our stay, the room is beautiful, I was a little worried about not having a/c in the middle of July but we NEVER felt the need for it, the ocean breeze is more than enough! The staff is excellent! They do everything they... More

Returned from Encantada after 4 night stay in room Cielo. Since hubby is always seeking A/C, I was worried that our July stay would be unbearable. On the contrary, the room had such a nice breeze, plus extra fans, that made it chilly at night. If you have any doubts about that, put them aside. The room was comfortable both... More

Thank you both so much for staying with us and I'm so glad you enjoyed our beautiful little property. We appreciate your suggestions about the slippers for the sand and hammocks for the deck. I'm so glad the ocean breezes made any ac unnecessary and yes, the morning sunrise is beautiful but bright so an eye mask is a good... More

The place is the very definition of leaving folks enchanted. My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Encantada, and were completely blown away by the experience. The facility, the food , the location and most of all the personal touch of the folks who work at Encantada made it a very special getaway for us. A big shout out... More

We just returned from our honeymoon, and did we ever make the right choice in Encantada! My best tip: if you're already willing to pay this hotel's deservedly higher rate, go all the way and choose a beachfront room as opposed to the garden view. Totally worth it. We stayed in MAR, one of the lower beachfront rooms. The first... More

We got home yesterday after a truly relaxing 9 days here. We felt as though we had really got away from it all... As the other reviewers have said there is no aircon, just the breeze (sometimes stronger!) from the sea, blowing through the screens with the doors open. This, along with the fans in the room, seems to be... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review of our hotel and Tulum. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Arena, we really are very quiet and private being a small hotel and so I'm glad you loved the room and tranquility of the beach. We do have an amazing staff who will always try to be more than accommodating... More

Beautifully positioned on the beach to fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves and wake up in the morning with a refreshing swim in the clear blue ocean. I stayed in a place on the oceanfront and everything was superb

A lovely setting, only 8 rooms and we had the perfect 2nd floor room overlooking the beach, cool breezes continually which are essential as there is no air con. The staff are exceptionally good. A truly relaxing environment but if you are looking for creature comforts you will have to accept No air.con, No phone, No hair dry, No room... More
