This place is just absolutely amazing! Our ocean cottage double doors opened up right to the crashing waves of the pacific ocean. The owners and staff were so friendly and accommodating, and the facilities were beautiful, clean, and full of amenities. Right between Jaco and Manuel Anotonio, drive 30-60 minutes and you can go to the best spots. I WILL...

Words fail me in describing my experience at Encantada Beach Cottages, but I will do my best to try. Let’s start with hospitality: the generous reception received from Tiffany, Nome, Adam, Katie, Elena, Daniel and all the property staff. Yeats quote describes it perfectly: there are no strangers here; only friends you haven't yet met. Every day I was surrounded...

I took a chance in choosing to host my very first international yoga retreat at Encantada Ocean Cottages without actually visiting first, and I cannot express enough how happy I am that I trusted my gut about this place. It a a perfect location to get away and chill, but also close enough to amazing adventurous excursions. Tiffany and Nome,...

Encantada was the perfect place to have an oceanfront yoga retreat. The staff were incredibly gracious and helpful. The weather perfect--even the night it rained! It is a very special place for those who seek to get away and reclaim their souls.

Great space! Cottages are rustic, but clean and comfy. Pool is nice a warm, super inviting. Staff and owners are kind and accommodating. Plenty of lovely things to do within a $20-$40 cab ride. Enjoy!!

Encantada is in a beautiful, peaceful location perfect for unwinding! The staff is attentive and friendly, with yoga onsite and the ability to book other activities near by. But why bother? Lying by the pool or in a hammock on the beach and enjoying the delicious food is more than enough.

I am not sure that I can put into words what a great place Encantada is. The beach was picture perfect, the people were all great, and the time spent there was priceless. Encantada is in a location that is close enough to Jaco and Quepos that you still have access to everything you may want to do while in...

A great place to stay in Costa Rica. We stumbled upon this by chance, but what a find! The area is populated with a couple of other hotels and restaurants, but other than that, you have most of the incredibly long beach to yourself. The staff were very nice and accommodating, and the yoga lessons were a great way to...
