We have stayed here several times and have always found the staff to be super friendly and helpful. We usually get a room in the annex where it's very quiet with comfy beds. Its location is excellent; right across the street from Baja Brewing (not sure if it has fully reopened yet, can be a bit noisy when there is... More

We had a quick two night stay here and everything was perfect. Great location within walking distance to restaurants shopping and entertainment. Nice pool. Clean rooms. Cordial management. In house spa services. Everything worked!

We have stayed at El Encanto Inn annually for the past 7 or 8 years. We have friends who also stay there whenever they're in town. The hotel grounds are beautifully planted and it is in a quiet area at the edge of the art district of San Jose del Cabo. In addition to the many galleries, there is a... More

This is our second stay and I will happily stay here again. They are in the heart of the art district and close to many great restaurants. I prefer the rooms around the pool, but the garden suites are also nice.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in January. We loved how central this location was to the town's center. San Jose Del Cabo and the Market square were just steps from this adorable inn. If we needed anything while we were out, we could just make a quick run back to the room and get it. After... More

The location of this hotel is good. The only issue my wife and I had was the lack of privacy from our garden level room. It appears that the rooms located on this level share all the traffic entering and exiting the hotel. This forces you to keep the curtains drawn for any type of privacy. In doing so it... More

Fantastic place to stay in San Jose del Cabo. Right in the heart of the art district, lovely gardens greet you! There is a lovely pool to dip in, delicious margaritas at the bar, and nice rooms. Service was spot on-I would absolutely stay here again.

The staff was friendly and helpful. I was very pleased with my room - poolside. I thought the grounds were lovely and the hotel was charming. While it is not beach front or a huge resort - it was exactly the "get away" location in the arts district that I was seeking. While there was some road work going on... More

Thank you for the time to review. The Art District is indeed a very enjoyable place to visit. The local restaurants are varied and provide an option for whatever type of dining you would like. All of our guests have been great about the hard work going on to rebuild the town. It has been a lot of work but... More

We spent 3 nights here from March 11-14, 2015. When we booked (on Booking.com) we did not realize the extent of the damage that Hurricane Odile had caused in Sept. The entire Cabo area was in a state of reconstruction and even now repairs are still going on. Encanto was lovely but the swimming pool (centre attraction) was scummy throughout... More

Sophisticated and affordable property. Old world charm and the location couldn't be better. So after you've chugged enough beers and seen enough babes in Cabo San Lucas, bring that special one here because it is something special to experience. Take it from a New Yorker, you won't be sorry.
