This review is for the restaurant in Encantada, we did not stay in this property as we are renting a house along the beach. The cocinero, Gerald, was at first aloof but still friendly; I ordered Costa Rican burrito and my husband ordered Rib Eye. While waiting, he served as a crisp pieces of something and later found that it... More

After some vacations to the Caribbean and Central America for snorkeling, diving, boating, and sightseeing Mayan ruins, we needed a vacation to unplug, relax, and rejuvenate. We wanted a quiet, end-of-the-road, relaxing time at a smaller locale. A place where we could go for long walks on a secluded beach, flop around pool-side, and enjoy excellent seafood and local dishes.... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for a nice, relaxing end to our hiking adventure in Costa Rica. Let me tell you, this was beyond perfect. It is the "green" season there, which basically means 1. It's super sunny from 6am until 2pm, then it rains, 2. Less tourists, and 3. Everything is way cheaper. We got upgraded to a... More

We were looking for a quiet getaway for our family (2 adults, a 6 yo, and a 4 yo), away from San Jose, away from Jaco, but not too far from the airport (Quepos felt like too far to drive after just arriving in CR). It was the perfect beginning to our CR vacation. It would also be a nice... More

We stumbled onto Encantada a year ago for one night, loved it, and just returned for a much longer stay. My wife and I took our two boys, 4 and 2, with us and though I think there are a lot of better spots in Costa Rica (I like to hike in the jungle and fish, and this isn't the... More

Our stay at Encantada was too short. We had the most relaxing laid back vacation and have absolutely no complaints. From the cozy cabanas, inviting swimming pool, to the helpful friendly people that are there to help and serve in anyway they can. Travel from the airport was easy as well. Have to say we'll definitely be back, but next... More

We stayed here at the end of our honeymoon. The beach was perfect and private. The cabin was clean. We stayed in the "honeymoon" cabin. It was nice, but more for a family, than for a couple. The manager was slowly working on a menu for the new restaurant, so drinks were limited to wine, which is great, but we... More

My favorite Hotel to stay at in Costa RIca! Love the renovations. Ive been visiting Encantada for 9 years. It has gotten a bit expensive and I cant afford to spend as many days as i would like, but it is a treat for a couple nights. The staff is doing an excellent job and the dinners are amazing!
