“viajeamexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a luxury hotel, and by far the nicest hotel we stayed in during our trip to Mexico. It is a jewel of modern architecture, yet still intimate and cozy. The hotel is perched over a jungle covered hillside exending into the ocean, on the Southern side of Acapulco Bay. This affords it incredible views over Acapulco Bay and the open Pacific. Parrots fly by every morning and evening on their daily pilgrimages, and the nights are filled with the sounds of birds and crickets. You feel like you are surrounded by nature and calm, yet given its location, it is just a quick car or cab ride to the beach, restaurants and nightlfe of Acapulco.
Not to be missed: book a later appointment at the Spa, and watch the sunset from the Spa jacuzzi.

The service is attentive but discrete, the food delicious. It is the perfect get away, probably best for couples or families with older children or babies, less so for families with toddlers. Given the rooms, location, and quality of service, it is an excellent value. I am looking for excuses to come back!

Room Tip: The corner rooms are absolutely SPECTACULAR, wih views in two directions.

Hotel Encanto was the perfect spot to stay in Acapulco. They provided the best service, everyone approached us with a smile, and they were willing to help us with anything. We did not speak Spanish, they had multiple employees that were including Jose Antonio who was so helpful in translating for us and providing all the things we asked for. The food alone is worth the stay! Being vegetarian we stayed very full with exotic salads, delicious pastas, and plenty of Sopes and tacos! The view is breath taking! Every room has a balcony that overlooks the pool and ocean in the distance. Room service for breakfast while taking in the view was probably the best part. They provided a live music show that Saturday that set the mood perfectly, and a Sunday BBQ poolside while we soaked up the sun.
Seriously, every staff member was so kind and amazing, the setting is a perfect spot to enjoy the beauty of Acapulco. We will be staying at this resort again!

Room Tip: Corner rooms have more space and a better view on the balcony.

I've had the good fortune to stay at scores of incredible hotels, but the Hotel Encanto in Acapulco is truly something special. From the incredible design of the building, providing privacy around every corner; to the location, high on the cliffs in the most luxurious area in Acapulco with jaw-dropping views of the bay and the ocean; everything about this hotel comes together with perfection.

The staff made us part of their family from the start. The food was great. No kids. The lighting is awesome but not too overwhelming. Amazing pool and private beach club at the bottom of the cliff. We even got a tour by the architect who designed the hotel, giving us our choice of room upgrade.

This is chic Acapulco, re-imagined for the 22nd century. I felt like a movie star in paradise in the future/outer space. Come here before the secret gets out.

Special thanks to Luiz, Maritza, Miguel, Victor and Candido!

ps. to anyone afraid of the news coming out of acapulco/guerrero... don't be. The only thing you'll have to worry about is beer vs. margarita vs. pina colada.

My team and I stayed here for shortly over three week. The staff was great, the service was top class and everyone treated everyone as their own. Was very pleased with EVERYTHING and will always reside there while visiting Las Cruses. The ladies at the front desk were beautiful and one that stood out with curly hair was gorgeous....
