El Encanto is a wonderful hotel with a beautiful view of the Pacific. The room was gorgeous with an extremely comfortable bed and a new spacious travertine bathroom. The spa was terrific! Hopping bar with Luca Ellis singing Standards and Sinatra. Food is delicious. In particular, they served a special risotto that they created for me. Dessert was a sensational Floating Island. Yum! Easy fabulous getaway!
