We just returned from a wonderful vacation at the Encantada--our first experience of the Yucatan or Tulum. This hotel is thoughtfully designed to fit the site and impeccably maintained: we saw less of the surrounding area than we anticipated, simply because there was no reason to leave. The room was beautiful (we were in the "Arena" unit, a lower-side beachfront... More

My wife and I had a wonderful vacation at the Encantada in January. It was our first trip to Tulum, and we are looking forward to returning next year. The staff were wonderful and always called us by our first name. The hotel is small and is perfectly situated on the beach. We are anxiously awaiting our return next winter!... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon a couple of weeks ago and we're still talking about how amazing it was. This is the best hotel in Tulum, hands down. The rooms are extremely clean, especially given how close they are to the beach. Not even a hint of mildew since there is no air conditioning (you don't... More

My husband and I recently stayed in the Mar suite at Encantada. From the moment we arrived, the staff knew us by first names, and treated us with such warmth. We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and they welcomed us with a celebratory bottle of tequila with limes in our room. The hotel is perfectly sized for those wanting a... More

We just checked out this morning from our wedding and honeymoon at Encantada and were so impressed. The photos and reviews are great but when you are there in person it is so much more beautiful and romantic than I expected. The staff is super friendly and will help you in any way. They created such a lovely private wedding... More

We were fortunate enough to be guests of Encantada on our most recent trip to Tulum, Mexico. For this trip we were looking for a very unique experience outside of the typical all-inclusive luxury resort experience. At Encantada we found just that and more. This boutique beachfront hotel is truly heaven on the beach! From the moment we arrived, we... More

My husband and I just got back from a week stay at Encantada and it was incredible. The physical space is breathtaking and our beach front roomed allowed us to wake up each morning as the sun rose over the ocean. The best part of our stay at Encantada? The staff! Every single person from the employee checking us in... More

We have stayed at several other beachfront properties in Tulum, and none of them come close to Encantada. The rooms keep the bohemian beauty of Tulum without being too rustic like other beachfront properties. The rooms are gorgeous with huge beds, lots of space and an open floor plan. The staff is beyond exceptional. Carlos is incredibly attentive, hard working,... More

Thank you so much for your very kind review. I'm glad you loved our spacious rooms and enjoyed our garden view room, which is lovely and like all our rooms, just a few steps from the beach. Our staff is amazing, very helpful and makes everyone feel like family. Our location on the "quiet end" of the Tulum beach helps... More

A very laid back relaxed small hotel. The only time we have ever been barefoot during a five day stay in an hotel. Our room lead on to a sandy path - turn left and walk 30 paces and you were on the beach, turn right and you were in the outside dining area, also in the sand. All the... More

I'm not going to repeat what others have already said about how great this place is. It is one of the top places I've stayed and we travel a lot. What I thought would be helpful to those reading these reviews is provide a little insight into the different rooms. We stayed for five nights in Cielo, one of the... More
