“Fantastic hotel - great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I stayed for 2 nights in January 2013. The hotel is in a great location close to the square, restaurants etc. Easy to walk every where and very safe area.
My room was in the old quarters and was very neat, clean and quiet.
The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. They were only to willing to help and make sure the stay was enjoyable
I would definately stay again and recommend the Inn to anyone wanting to avoid the bigger resorts and chill out in a great atmosphere.
Thanks guys !!!!!

Room Tip: The old quarters are very quiet. No traffic noise and great for a good nights rest. They are also ve...

This was our second visit to this inn. This time we upgraded to a pool side room which was very nice but a little pricey. The gardens are beautiful and it was great to sit by pool and relax. The location is great- five minutes walk to the square and lots of restaurants within easy walking distance. Lots of upgrades going on the nearby streets but easily negotiated and avoided. Many art galleries and shops in nearby streets. Feels very safe and is quiet most of the time except when Thursday night artwalk is on.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms are nicer than standard rooms but a bit more expensive and the downstairs rooms woul...

I adored the Elcanto Inn. Once we were there I regretted not staying longer than one night. The rooms are comfortable, stylish and airy. It's right in the town so you can easily access great restaurants. We did the Thursday evening Art Walk, which was great fun. From the moment we arrived, I felt welcome and relaxed! Really looking forward to going back.

Great hotel for exploring San Jose del Cabo. Convenient location, beautiful rooms and courtyard, gracious staff and free parking. No restaurant on site, but plenty nearby. Include a Thursday night for the Art Walk; weekends can be a bit slow. But the hotel is lovely We will return.

We went up to San Jose from San Lucas for the Thursday Night Art Walk and didn't want to drive back until Friday. This hotel is perfectly located in the art district. Comfortable and with a lovely garden and pool in the courtyard. Parking, wifi, and breakfast up the street at Jazmins restaurant included.

Now that the new street work is completed. The entire Art District is busy with daily guests as well a evening diners and people simple enjoying the historic town atmosphere. It is a beautiful time to visit the City. There is also the estuary and Cactus Gardens in Puerto Los Cabos. We enjoy hearing from our guests and try to keep improving our service.

This is a great little place that offers so much of the charm of Mexico that people are looking for! We had asked for a recommendation from our tour guide in La Paz for a place to stay in San Jose del Cabo, and we were so glad we stayed at El Encanto.

We stayed in the part that was a block away, and were amazed with how quiet and quaint the place was. We arrived earlier than the check-in time, and they let us leave our luggage while we went for lunch and put a rush on getting our room ready for us. We were only there for one night but we sad to leave.

We booked on Expedia and had no problem with the rates, additional charges, or any booking problems.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms would be nice, but we liked the adjacent property down the block

This is a lovely hotel that offers, privacy, casual and elegance all in one location. I loved everything about this hotel. It was perfect. The hotel has lovely gardens and quiet places to hide and relax. It offers a great breakfast at a local resturant that was delicious. Next to the hotel is a little church that offers a timeless place to relax.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. Higher floors have more light.
