I spent a weekend at El Encanto and it was nothing less than perfect!! The staff was so professional and accommodating from the minute we climbed out of our car. They carried all of our bags for us and wouldn't let us lift a finger. Our room was so relaxing and luxurious. It was tucked away and allowed us to have so much privacy that it felt like we weren't even staying at a hotel. We ordered breakfast one morning and the staffed set up the whole table on the patio as if we were in our own private restaurant! I work in the customer service industry and I have never experienced such excellent customer service! El Encanto is THE place to stay in Santa Barbara. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a five star experience. Thank you El Encanto staff!!
