I have stayed at this hotel three times in the last five years. It is amazing. A tourist friendly place in the midst of a tourist mecca. It built in the old Spanish style with a beautiful central court yard. For us 'old timers'..... they have move the central lobby to the east side of the hotel opposite the parking... More

My wife and I stayed at the El Encanto the night of July 14th, 2015 with our two grandchildren. The room we stayed in was a small suite with two bedrooms overlooking the courtyard. Not modern by any stretch of the imagination, but I was looking for something more authentic Mexican. The hotel is within walking distance of many good... More

This boutique property on the northern edge of San Jose's downtown offers convenience, comfort and a serene stay unmatched by the many mega resorts that dot the tourist corridor between this old colonial city and Cabo San Lucas. Sure, there's no view from this inland hacienda of the indescribably gorgeous Sea of Cortez, but you can wrap yourself in the... More

San Jose has done a lot the last few years to restore the Historic Center and create walking areas for guests to enjoy the galleries, restaurants and events in the Plaza. Glad you liked the band but we usually try and have the music around the hotel quiet by 11. Thanks for your visit and very helpful comments Safe Travels... More

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.

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.
