Really nice hotel staff, lovely large room. Very comfortable. Good location, free parking. We'll go back. There's a bar and restaurant adjacent to the pool. GREAT bar and bartender to bring in the evening. We didn't try the restaurant, but it's a great setting. Free wi-fi only works in hotel lobby. Free breakfast at restaurant down the street was just...

This is a small quaint hotel located a few blocks from the main town square. It is in an area with several small art galleries, a few upscale restaurants, and some casual bars and restaurants. The hotel has 2 buildings-the main hotel with the pool and then another building a short block away. We stayed in the second building because... More

We did not have the opportunity to stay here, but were guests for drinks and appetizers (excellent!); the location, beauty, charm and graciousness of the staff of the El Encanto Inn sealed the deal! I look forward to visiting this year with my daughters, to enjoy the hotel and all that it offers.

We love this sweet inn with its pristine gardens and pool in downtown San Jose del Cabo. The poolside suite is large and clean.the staff is extremely helpful and everything you need is within walking distance. The beaches are a cab ride away.

We spent two nights here and picked this hotel because honestly it was the only one that had vacancy and accepted dogs. For some reason, I had a hard time finding this place. I was using a GPS unit and it wound up sending me on an extensive self drive tour of the entire town. When I did finally find... More

Don't believe AAA two star rating. This is one of the loveliest hotels I have had the privilege of staying at. We felt completely safe day and night here. As others have mentioned, get a poolside suite! You will be so happy you did. We stayed in the Cielito Lindo Suite. It was beautiful! The cross breeze is great with... More

We are staying for only one night, but we love this hotel. It is located in the older section of town. It is not a resort, but a small hotel. Extremely clean and full of character. We are in a "standard" room across the street from the main building, where it is very quiet. I wish we could stay longer!

We got the king garden suite in Room 207 in the annex building. Loved the privacy and quiet. Room was big and bedroom up on a 2nd level. Unhurried pace here with a relaxing atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and the hotel has an old fashioned Mexican feel to it. Traveled here in Nov 2015 for a 1 nite stay before... More

The El Encanto is a beautiful oasis right in the midst of both the Gallery and Historic Districts of San Jose. Everything is within an easy walk (restaurants, galleries, shopping) and if you want to go further afield, you can catch a bus directly behind the hotel. There is a restaurant/bar right next to the hotel and guests of the... More

We have stayed there several times in the last 2 years, as we live in Cabo San Lucas. Good staff. Lush plants. Nice pool. Restaurant a little expensive but nice ambiance. Really appreciate the fact they are pet friendly.
