We were headed on a car trip across Baja California Sur and did not wish to start our journey in the evening (flight arrived at SJD at 5PM). So what we needed was a comfortable place to stay which was near the airport and close to downtown San Jose Del Cabo. We decided on one night at El Encanto and... More

We have stayed at the El Encanto for years and each year the price is bumped up just a little bit and I(we) feel the price has reached the level where we will be looking elsewhere to stay next March when we go to Mexico. We've stayed there for about 9 years now and the economics dictate that we look... More

We booked for an overnight stay between timeshare villas. We had a pool side room. Staff were great and all arrangements were handled very professionally. We found the facilities comfortable but could use an update. Bathroom is very outdated and we were reluctant to shower. Pool and grounds are beautiful. We would stay again but only a short visit as... More

Loved the hotel for our brief stay in San Jose which is the place to visit away from all the hustle and bustle of Cabos. The manager was very helpful and accommodating, we were involved in a car accident and he was very helpful with phone calls and to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The Hotel is on... More

We stayed a night in early June. The kids could romp in pool, we were comfortable in our rooms, we were within walking distance to restaurants and brewery, and we were relaxed when we left. The gardens are delightful respite from the summer heat of San Jose del Cabo.

My family vacations every year at Playa Grande Resort in Cabo San Lucas for a one-week stay. However one week isn't quite enough time, so we usually add about 3 nights at a smaller, more intimate accommodation. We loved our stay at El Encanto Inn and would happily stay there again. Cabo can be very frenetic, and the Inn provides... More

Cute little hotel off the tourist path surrounded by art galleries and boutique restaurants. Excellent beaches are a 5 minute taxi ride away. Historic San Jose is the nicest town I've been to in Mexico. Lots of friendly locals and gringos mixed. Gone are the pushy vendors. In their place are little cafes and restaurants with excellent food and service.... More

We come here about once or twice a year for the last 4 or 5. Always a pleasant experience. As we came with our dog, the anex is the only choice for rooms. They are not as nice as the ones around the pool in the main building but then, they are cheaper. Their wi-fi has improved, their parking lot... More
