It’s a great location within walking distance. Beautiful property, and the access of the sister property is wonderful. The buffet at La Porta, the sister property is second to none. I would recommend this place to my family and friends. The only issue is, the morning and afternoon traffic from Antigua to GUA can be quite heavy, up to two hours. Keep this in mind with flights, as I missed one of mine.
This was quite possibly the cutest boutique hotel I have ever stayed in, and I've stayed in A LOT. It's quaint, quiet and relaxing but you also have access to the larger resort across the street so can enjoy some additional amenities like restaurant, bar and pool (but Casa Encantada also has a pool!). The room was small but we never spend much time in the room when exploring a new city so that doesn't matter. It was well decorated and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly as well! The breakfast on the rooftop was also delicious and it was so nice to soak up the sun on the rooftop every morning. You can pretty much walk all of Antigua so the location is perfect and not on a super busy street. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Antigua!
Fabulous boutique hotel with a staff that couldn't be more wonderful! I would like to thank Melvin, Karen and many others whom I can't remember. I highly recommend Casa Encantada to stay in the most beautiful colonial town in Latin America.
Great service and perfect location for us. We have stayed a couple of times and will definitely look to use again. It was very convenient for our needs. The central square is close enough but you are not right on top of it.
Casa Encantada and the sights, sounds and flavors of Antigua absolutely enchanted us. We spent a week in February at the intimate 10-room B&B in the heart of the colonial Guatemalan city. The attractive and peaceful two-story white cement building has red roofs and exposed dark wooden beam accents. A courtyard garden surrounds a plunge pool with three comfortable cushioned sunbeds. Our top floor studio – and only one other suite – opened on to a sunny terrace and included efficient Wi-Fi, a quiet mini-fridge upon request, TV, safe, robes, deluxe toiletries and a large walk-in rain shower. Cool nights and three windows made A/C unnecessary. Complimentary coffee, tea, drinking water, ice and cookies were available downstairs in the living room 24/7. We began several days with breakfast on the terrace amid a profusion of tropical blooms and the cooing, trilling and chirping of countless birds. Of the five options, we especially enjoyed the traditional fare: sunny-side eggs, fried plantains, tamales, refried black beans, fresh local cheese, pineapple juice and the region’s famous coffee. On a few other mornings, we opted instead for the sumptuous buffet poolside at the remarkably low-key 110-room sister Porta Hotel Antigua a block away. We loved the made-to-order omelets, freshly squeezed OJ, and sliced pineapple and watermelon – as well as the manicured grounds, the volcano views and two entertaining (and squawking) resident macaws. …
