Late review, we stayed at the El Encanto Inn over Memorial day weekend. It was exactly what we were looking for, a small hotel, a throw back to the old Mexican charm, El Encanto did not disappoint. The room was beautifully appointed, air conditioned and a comfortable king size bed. The room had french doors that opened up to the garden with flower beds, palm trees and a nice little pool. If you want peace an quiet this is your place. There are no tourist type business you find at the large resort hotels. You have to pay for all your meals around San Jose but that is one of the charms, finding all of the interesting places to eat. We did not have one bad meal, we took advantage of the free breakfast coupon offered by the hotel, the breakfast was good, but with so many place to try we only had it one day. We stayed for 5 days and ate at a different place every day with the exception of the (English) Blonde Bull a local seafood restaurant a short walk from the hotel. If you have never had fresh thin sliced scallops with lime it is a must. Plenty of shopping and small grocery stores within walking distance. Book the Elencanto you will not be disappointed. One tip taxis are exspensive from here to Cabo San Lucas if you plan on going there go early and stay late to make the cost worth the trip 25 to 35 USD one way! Also make sure to book airport taxi before you go.
