What a charming little hacienda. We had 3 days here and it is perfectly positioned. Close walk to the centre of town. Fantastic day spa. Rooms are large and very clean and the managers are just lovely. Romantic and quiet

Finding El encanto was the best surprise of our trip. It's exquisite and historical yet modern in amenities. The gardens, buildings, rooms, pool, and location are perfect to experience San Jose deal cabo.

The three of stayed here for three nights after staying at a beachside hotel beforehand. It was such a fun change of pace. The Inn is located within short walking distance of the San Jose Del Cabo downtown plaza, which has tons of fun shopping, restaurants and art galleries in it. The Inn itself is very charming, our room came... More

We stayed here after checking out of our Cabo San Lucas resort for one night before flying out. We LOVED it. So very peaceful, decent pool, quiet, easy to walk around town and take in all the art and jewelry shops, close to restaurants. My boys (21 and 24) even said it was excellent. We had a two bedroom unit... More

Drift back into old world style plaza suites. A front office leads you into what seems to be the beautiful garden courtyard of a hacienda. You will forget that you were just in the heart of San Jose del Cabo! With great amenities, courteous staff, and excellent location, this is a great hotel for the traveler who doesn't want to...

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
