We loved staying at Isla del Encanto. It was great to wave good bye to the day trippers and realize we had the island to ourselves. The night we stayed on the island, we were the only guests. This is a great place to get away from it all and find peace and tranquility. The beach is beautiful, the accommodations... More

We discovered Isla del Encanto through the concierge at our hotel in Boca Grande. It's clear that the majority of people who come here book a day trip. My boyfriend and I opted to stay overnight and it was the best decision we could have made. It seemed kinda expensive at first, but when you realize that all your meals... More

highly recommended as a romantic vacation away from everything. The staff is amazing, the food is great and there is air conditioning in the rooms. it is a private beach but day-trippers come from about 10am-3pm so it can get a bit crowded during the middle of the day. Definitely stay in one of the bungalows but bring ear plugs... More

Clean, very comfortable hotel, with friendly and helpful staff. Had a delicious dinner. The beach is very small, but enjoyed use of the free kayak. Snorkel equipment is fairly expensive (as lots of people have said) so I was prepared for it, but it does include a boat trip over to the calm waters near another island, and saw loads... More

This hotel is wonderful. Service is incredible. Stayed in Villa Daniela, great room. Bed and A/C was great. Internet only works in lobby. Pool was really nice. Food choices are great and delicious. Once the day trippers leave, the place is heaven. On our last night they even set up a table on the beach for us to dine. Nelson... More

We picked this place randomly and are really glad we did. The hotel is a collection of several rooms, maybe 8. It is not luxurious nor did we expect it to be. The beauty of it is that after the day tour leaves at around 3 the beach is isolated and gorgeous. We were one of three rooms staying that... More

Overall I think this is a place with a lot of potential as a nice high-end hotel that is dragged down by subpar hospitality, service, and food quality. They certainly charge the price of a nice high-end hotel! We stayed for 2 nights in August, arriving in the AM and leaving in the PM with the day-trippers so it was... More

First, you need to understand that Isla del Encanto is a boat trip destination and thus a boat trip company. This is their business and how they make money, which is fine. So everyday, 3 or 4 boats full of people (around 30) come so that they can spend the day there from 10am to 3pm. During this period of... More

This hotel is located in one of the 27 islands that form the "Islas del Rosario". It is a private island so the day trip is more expensive than to some other islands, but it is so worth it! The deal includes transport to/from your hotel, speed boat ride to/from island, and lunch. Additional activities like snorkeling and diving are... More

I am not sure this shoudl be listed under hotels.... Perhaps someone intripadvisor can correct this placement please. This is the correct name of the place, and it is the right location but everyone there was on a boat trip, same as me.
