I loved the intimacy, the coziness, the quietness and the location. I particularly appreciated the gentleness and the kindness of the owners! Excellent food! It is only 1h30m from the airport and has many nature activities and visits around plus the best beach for long walks. Highly recommend it to anyone who loves travelling outside of the beaten paths!

While I stayed at Encantada the owners really made me feel welcome and at home. The resort itself is right on the beach but also has an amazing pool overlooking the ocean. The rooms are really nice, the sheets are extremely soft and the air condition is heavenly. The menu is also really quite good. My stay at a Encantada... More

The hotel is very well maintained, the room we occupied was very clean and tidy. The bed is very spacious and comfortable and the pillows are VERY comfortable. The pool is very well maintained too.

The cabins circle around a warm clean lovely pool. The hotel is directly on the beach equipped with lots of games for couples and families. This hotel has such potential... More

I absolutely fell in love with this place. Encantada is right on the beach and has 7 different cottages to chose from. A beautiful large pool surrounds the cottages. I met my sisters for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's beautifully landscaped with tropical plants, quiet and so relaxing. You don't even have to leave if you don't want... More

Encantada feels like a beautiful home with independent cottages surrounding a lovely pool. The beach, games on property, horse back rides and beach walks are friendly and amazing. The menu is delicious and everything was cooked over a wood burning grill which we loved. The flavors were exquisite. My family and I felt very welcome and safe. We had so... More
