Excellent hotel, the individual cabins are amazing, both myself and my girlfriend loved it. The garden is expansive and very well maintained, breakfast consists mostly of fresh fruit which is a nice reprieve from the heavy Caribbean food. Very centrally located just a two minute walk from town. Excellent facilities, very clean and very helpful staff. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I have just returned from an amazing 10 nights at El Encanto. The hotel is small and quiet, with a nice little pool for relaxing in the afternoons before dinner. The grounds are very well manicured but maintain the wild trees and plants you find all over the Caribbean coast. It is located in a quiet location,... More

A perfect B & B situated a short walk out of Cahuita and next to the beach. We stayed 3 nights in an upstairs suite which was beautiuflly decorated with a balcony area to sit out. The grounds are beautifully laid out and Alex, the Manager, took the time to show us the small dart frogs and other wildlife which... More

My husband and I stayed at the El Encanto Inn 2 weeks ago for 3 nights. We live in Los Angeles, California, and have travelled extensively. The moment we stepped through the gates of El Encanto Inn we felt the enchantment of this incredible, serene place. The atmosphere of the lush gardens with the pool area is so relaxing and... More

Really nice place, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast with spectacular home made bread. Alex, its owner and manger gives a familiar touch to your stay, always with a open smile and willingness to make you feel welcome. I really recommend this place to those who want to feel at home at the beach.

It's a very lovely place, Alex (it's Manager) it is very kind with clients and always care to make you feel welcome. The breakfast is always on time, and the fact that people have nonstop tea and coffee to take is wonderful.

If I could give El Encanto, and particularly the general manager Alex, 10 stars, I would. This is a gem and hands down the best place to stay in Cahuita. It's a perfect location - a quick walk to town, but far enough away to be quiet. For people who don't have a car who are looking for Cahuita hotels,... More

I was a little ambivalent about traveling to Cahuita with my two kids (ages 10 and 14), it having the reputation as something of a party town--but we did want to visit the sloth sanctuary and check out the beach. El Encanto was a perfect little island of serenity. I simply can't imagine anyone not loving this place and feeling... More

My partner and I stayed for four nights in one of the upstairs suites. The room and grounds were spotless. You could see all the hard work the staff puts into this bed and breakfast. Everyday morning we were greeted with a delicious breakfast and a genuine smile. Coffee was good and brewed for us every night. We felt so... More
