After we checked in we realized that we had a room in the annex, which was definitely superior to the main building. We were just passing through for one night, but if you book this hotel for a longer strectch make sure you stay in the main building. The courtyard with the swimming pool here seemed lovely.

The Inn is located downtown in the art district. If you want beaches, you will need to walk a ways or use a cab or car. However the downtown is charming and the hotel is too. Our main floor pool view room was large, comfortable and attractive. However it was dark because blinds and curtains had to be kept closed... More

. We spent one night here on the final day of a 9 day trip to the Baja. We chose the hotel on a referral from a friend and were pleasantly relieved when we arrived. The pool side room was charming, with a comfortable bed, a seating area and french doors looking out onto the pool and garden. The concierge... More

Nice small hotel right in the "old" part of town, within walking distance of restaurants, art galleries... Rooms in the annex across the street are adequate. Only complaint was a noisy air conditioning unit.

It was nice to find an affordable hotel in the Art District of San Jose Del Cabo. What wonderful setting both outside and inside the rooms, the garden around the pool also very charming. Service was excellent & reception staff very helpful. It was too bad that San Jose music scene overpowered the serenity of the hotel. It was quite... More

On our way to a dive trip in the Socorros, we spent a night at this hotel. The property is a little difficult to find (our taxi driver got lost) but it is right on the edge of the art district and very convenient to the shops and the central square. It is divided into two parts, one of which... More

As others have noted, El Encanto is perfectly situated in the art district of San José and within easy walking distance of the plaza and restaurants. The desk and housekeeping staffs are efficient, friendly and professional. The grounds and pool are meticulously maintained. We took one of the poolside suites and were very pleased. We highly recommend this hotel!
