Ocean paradise all to yourself. Nice bungalows two queen size beds and a loft in each cabin. Oceanfront ,very friendly people. Nice pool with lounge chairs. Restaurant within walking distance, lots of locals to visit with. Horseback riding on the beach was very nice.

First, I had a hard time downgrading this vacation. So much was perfect! The owners are trying very hard and did many things to make the trip special and unique, from fireworks and bonfires on the beach to a sunset concert one night! The location is off the beaten path and very unique. The rooms look just like they're advertised... More

My husband and I stayed here in the beginning of December and had an amazing time! We stayed for 3 nights and wish we spent the whole week. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the bedding was so comfortable. The restaurant was intimate and the food was great. Tiffany and nome were so welcoming. They offered great suggestions for dining... More

When I first got to Encantada, I was speechless. The property is beyond beautiful; it's obvious there is great care put in to maintaining the whole resort by the entire staff. The cabinas are adorable and the beds are perfect. Being tucked away and nestled into a quiet beach, it was easy to leave the troubles of life behind. There... More

This is a really, really special place. I am typically the "Four Seasons Hotel" type and I'm a VERY picky traveler with high standards. On this trip to Costa Rica, my family and I wanted to experience a more authentic, less crowded place off the beaten path. Our travel guide suggested Encantada and it was truly amazing! what a find.... More

Six of us stayed four nights here at the beginning of December and had a fantastic time. It truly is a beautiful spot for getting away from it all and we took full advantage of chilling in hammocks on the beach or on loungers by the pool. The owners and staff were amazingly friendly and looked after us perfectly; arranging... More

The setting is fantastic. Located on the beach in a natural environment. Having the owners doing hands on management and service made a big difference not only by their friendlyness but also experience. The food at the restaurant is way above average by the quality and choice. If in the area I would go just for dinner. The room/cottage are... More

I found this place on tripadvisor and am not sure how you would find it otherwise. Encantada has amazing reviews, and now I completely understand why. Everything about our vacation there was perfect. The resort is steps away from the ocean, and you truly feel like you're on a private beach. I feel asleep multiple times on the hammocks watching... More

Really great place tucked away from it all and on an excellent beach. The owners were SO awesome, really friendly, outgoing, and passionate about their new venture. They really took care that we had everything we needed although I am sure it was a strain on them to be there 24/7. They even have their own staff to man the... More

We stayed here in December, my husband, myself and our three kids. It was perfect for us. The rooms are clean and bright and the owners are warm and accommodating. The beach is right outside the door, and although there are other hotels nearby, it felt like the beach was nearly empty. The food was great, and they were wonderful... More
