“Lovely location, view, amenities, all fabulous....watch your belongings at the pool, however.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed with our friends at this lovely condominium - well off the beaten path of San Jose del Cabo. It is located in a gated community and is beautifully detailed and furnished. Since it is a private condominium community, it is very quiet and there were not a lot of guests at the time of our stay.

We had used the soaking tub one evening and the following morning my friend said he saw my sundress on one of the lounge chairs. We both commented as to how "safe" our surroundings were, "couldn't be safer than this [the gated community],"so, rather than rush to retrieve my dress (as I should have), instead we finished our breakfast. Shortly after he said he saw my dress (about 45 min), I went out to retrieve it and it had been taken from the lounge chair! I was (still am) very disappointed. The dress was the perfect little sundress - one that I had purchased in Hawaii 20 YEARS ago. I used it solely for vacations to sunny places. It was still cute, current and like-new. I believe that one of the guests saw me wearing it, thought it was cute (it was/is) and decided to take it from the lounge chair versus trying to find its owner. They would not have had to have looked very far, either, because there were only about 4 units that were occupied during our stay. I did look high and low and let everyone know (seriously - everyone knew about the dress, even the gate guard), but nothing turned-up. Even our neighbors - condominium owners - were surprised that it was taken as they had left items out overnight by the pool on many occasions with no problem.

Lesson learned - when travelling - even to a very exclusive, expensive, high-end location - don't assume a false sense of security!! I am still very sad that someone had the nerve to take my sundress!!

I would recommend this vacation home and location, but am pretty sad about my dress. I also DO NOT think it was any of the staff as there was only one gardener working, that we could see that morning.

Thank you for your kind words in regards to your overall experience with us at El Encanto. It is always a shame that an individual anywhere would take what is not theirs, and, that it was precious to you makes it worse. Thank you also for being assured that it was not one of our staff. Each is vetted and, to date, we have had no issues regarding their trustworthiness. We are so sorry for your loss and I hope this will not keep you from returning to El Encanto for another great vacation along this glorious coast.
