We stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. I would have given it an 'Excellent' review had it not been for the dogs that live here. In a couple of places on the property the smell of dog faeces was rather off putting. Other than this, it was a great place to stay - excellent br

this was a lovely location, beautiful grounds and very helpful staff, but some things let it down. for a start they need to buy some new beds, ours made a dreadful noise if one of us moved, so we woke each up all night moving in our sleep.
the pools were nice, very clean, and th

We loved the place, small hotel, super friendly staff, laid-back, family atmosphere. We ended up extending our stay. Not fancy but nice rooms with Caribbean cabin feel. We were in low season so we had the place pretty much to ourselves, might be a bit crowded when hotel is full.

We decided to finish our honeymoon here at El Encanto for 11 nights, and it was just perfect. From the moment we arrived Alex was so helpful with all the information we needed, and gave us loads of great tips.

We loved our room, and also the hidden oasis of the grounds and pool

The grounds are "Enchanting", but the rooms need desperate updating and new beds. It's ok not to have a T.V. but we didn't appreciate not having any ice or our A/C being turned off by the maid everyday, making us purchase ice for our cooler everyday. The breakfast eggs were ter

Can you get a pick up from the airport and what is the cost
La mejor opcion es interbus, pero no recojen en la terminal del aeropuerto. Otra opcion es el transporte privado (alrededor de 180$) o transporte publico (9 dolares/persona)

bonjour peut on louer une voiture depuis l’hôtel est ce qu'il y a une possibilité de navette qui vienne nous chercher à l’aéroport ou au terminal des bus et à quel tarifs, peut on avoir un grand lit dans les chambres. merci de vos réponses
Buenos días, desde el aeropuerto se puede llegar por transporte publico, son 4 horas de viaje y el billete son 5000 colones (10$). Para llegar en taxi el precio son 200$ aproximadamente. Recomendamos el transporte publico y si no, alquilar un coche, resultará más económico. Aqui en Cahuita no hay un servicio de alquiler de coches pero en Puerto Viejo está Alamo Rent a Car, ellos traen el coche a la puerta del Hotel o si lo prefieren pueden alquilarlo desde San José puesto que se encuentran en todo el país. En la pagina web de Alamo Rent a Car puede ver los lugares de recogida. En el Hotel El Encanto disponemos de habitaciones dobles con cama doble, queen o king size. Esperamos que sea de utilidad. Un saludo Alex
