The inn is in a relatively secluded area right accross the road from the beach. There is an off-street parking area for your car. You are within easy walking distance of the downtown restaurants and bars as well as the park. The rooms and are comfortable and they have a "retreat area" that they use for massages if you want...

We stayed here throughout our stay in Cahuita and it was simply great. The bungalow is spacious, clean and well kept. The only "bad" thing is that they are not really sound proof - you can actually hear your neighbour flush their toilet, This was something a couple arriving after us were not aware so we ended up hearing a...

El Encanto Inn stood out as one of the highlights of our holiday in Costa Rica. Magical place and wonderful home cooked breakfasts and fresh fruit every morning. We are hopeful to return again in future. We also loved Cahuita and enjoyed the local resturants very much.

We started our holiday in Cahuita. This was a great place to be in our first days. We could relax in the nice garden with small pool. Our cabin was wonderfull and clean with nice terrace with hammock. The breakfast was very good. It was in walking distance from Cahuita and the sea. A very nice and unique place!

Rather than finding it to have a "laid back carribean vibe", our family thought Cahuita was a trash infested mess full of indifference. We will not be returning. Of this hotel I can say the following: in an otherwise...

I was definetely expecting this comment and I'm quite ready for the answer. When Jenny arrived I asked her how she did like her room, and she said it was a bid downgrade compared to the luxurious hotel they were coming from ! It made me feel really bad. They hated Cahuita , I cannot believe you can dislike this...

This was an amazing place to stay. I got some bad news about my family during my stay and the owner went out of her way to help me and offer me support. I couldn't have asked for a more healing place. On the other hand I was there with my boyfriend and we were in absolute awe. The landscape...
