This was our first time staying at the El Encanto. Originally we reserved a standard room in the annex building but were upgraded to a poolside king bed room. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and they accommodated our extra guest by putting an additional twin bed in the room. The room was quaint as the hotel is older.... More

We have stayed at El Encanto several times over the years we've been traveling to BCS and it has never disappointed. Great staff, clean rooms and you can walk to many amenities San Jose del Cabo has to offer. Plus you're right in the heart of the Art Walk held on Thursday evenings, a must do!

Having previously stays at El Encanto, we were pleasantly surprised by the new office and the staff managing it. They were very accommodating even to the point of having wine available for sale. Since we were traveling with a physically handicapped couple, we were also provided staff to bring our luggage to the second floor. Pool area and the planned... More

After reading great reviews of this hotel online, I booked a 7-day stay here for myself, my husband, and a friend of ours over Christmas break. I was a little nervous about committing to just one hotel for the entire duration of our trip--especially one I hadn't seen before. After staying here, though, I'm so glad we did. This hotel...

It is beautiful, though dated and we did have problems with the wi-fi and the hot water, but those we minor issues and the ambiance... More

After moving away from Los Cabos and returning as a tourist, we chose to stay in El Encanto Inn. Our choice was wise. Even in face of Hurricane Odile, the Hotel was able to rebound and present a property as if nothing had happened. Our room was spacious, clean, quiet. Our bed wonderfully soft. Centrally located in the art district... More
