Great small hotel but only if you book one of the pool or garden view rooms. If you book a standard room, you're escorted down the street to a separate building. The "view" from the pool or garden view rooms are essentially the same, it's just that the pool view rooms are actually right in front of the pool. The... More

After reading many positive reviews, including one from a good friend of ours, we were disappointed with the El Encanto. Our room was in an annex building, across the street from the main hotel. It was exceedingly small with two double beds -- not at all what we expected for $144 on a Wednesday night in early December. But there... More

The exterior of this hotel belies the interior. It is built like many old Spanish haciendas were.........plain exterior, stunning interior courtyard. They have nice grounds, a wonderful swimming pool, and even a small Catholic church used for weddings. The rooms are of decent size and well maintained. It is located only about 4 blocks from the central town square, and... More

We have stayed here a few years ago, then they put us across the street, wasn't as nice as the main hotel, but it was quiet. This time we begged to be in the old hotel, with the pool....so we lucked out and got a beautiful room on the ground level near the front exit, because we had our very... More

I was led to this place by looking for a non-tourist-laden respite for a peaceful vacation.... and it couldn't have been better. The most pleasant folks there (Domenica and Eduardo) were answering my e-mails about the the rooms, steering me to where I needed to go. You know, things that one would hope local staff would do, but actually rarely... More

This nice and cosy posada will welcome you in th best way possible. It is located in the most beautiful part of the city and has a useful parking area nearby. It is also very quiet and close to the greatest restaurants of Los Cabos.

This beautiful little hotel is what it is supposed to be like when you visit Mexico. It is not a huge, sprawling resort but rather a tidy, well maintained slice of Mexico. From the well appointed rooms, to the pleasant pool, to the lush garden - it is a splendid place to relax. In the middle of the art district... More

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).

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.
