We've traveled numerous times to Costa Rica and this was our first time to the Caribbean side of the country. We will surely come back and would only stay at El Encanto. We would live here if we could. Alex has more energy than most hosts and the attention to cleanliness of the property and the personal attention was surely... More

Cahuita is a charming little town. Staying at El Encanto adds a bit of magic and elegance to it, and never feels stuffy in the process. Alex, the manager, starts off your stay with his enthusiastic welcome. He couldn't have been more warm and helpful throughout our stay. He has such a passion for the surroundings (including the collection of... More

This place had pretty much everything we wanted. A nice pool for all of us, including our 18 month old daughter, to enjoy, walking distance to the national park and the main street with many great restaurants. The rooms were very clean with great beds and the hammocks outside the bungalows were very comfortable. The suite room was incredible! My... More

When the front gates of El Encanto open, you feel like you are walking into a dream! The grounds are absolutely beautiful! We were lucky enough to stay in the Suite and it was amazing. You had a beautiful view of the hotel grounds and of the ocean. The swimming pool area was very nice as well. We were greeted... More

I stayed for three nights with my teenage children. We all loved the place. Alex, the manager, does all he can to make it a nice stay. The breakfast is wonderful with homemade bread every day. The garden is beautiful and the location is in short distance to both the national park and the centre of Cahuita. I hope to... More

Amiable Alex manages this cozy hideaway with great charm and gives best advice where to go and what to do. You can enjoy the very clean pool and relax with a cup of coffee or tea in... More

We very much loved the Carribean coast, and we loved El Encanto Inn. A great place, well maintained, very relaxing. Nice and clean rooms, friendly host, nice garden with small pool, quiet (apart from the howler monkeys in the morning - what a nice way to be awakened!). Within easy walking distance to Cahuita "downtown", but on our first evening,... More
