My husband, teenage son and I had a truly wonderful stay at Encantada Ocean Cottages! The staff was helpful and pleasant, the food was delicious and the cottages and grounds maintained well. Our cottage opened up to a full view of the ocean - it was gorgeous and so relaxing. We would go back in a heartbeat - and probably...

This was my third trip to Costa Rica and Encantada Ocean cottages. I love the little changes each year the owners are making and the things that are always constant. The staff are pleasant, friendly and helpful. The breakfast is included and gives a number of choices which are all good and served with fresh juice and fruit. The restaurant...

This was our 1st (of many, many I hope) trip to Costa Rica. Without question we made the right decision on where to stay. The environment, people, food, drinks and activities were wonderfully kid friendly and tastefully prepared and presented. Our day consisted of sitting by the pool, eating, surfing, walking the beach, eating, sitting by the pool and walking...

Very pleasant stay. Outstanding staff and food, gorgeous grounds, right on the beach. It is not plush, but clean and relaxing. Plenty of hammocks, corn hole, giant jenga, beach and pool. We'd stay again.

We just returned home from our vacation at Encantada. It was more than I could have ever expected. The food was great. The beach is right there. You can enjoy the amazing food and enjoy the ocean at the same time. It's also great because you are away from all the crowds of people, but not too far away to...

My friend and I stayed for five nights in a pool side cottage. The cottage was lots of room and has a nice private sitting area outside your door. Resort is smaller so you never feel like your set away from anything. The food is amazing never had one bad meal. We did yoga three times highly recommend, I also...

We really enjoyed our time in Costa Rica and staying at Encantada worked out great for us. The food (free breakfast!) was delicious and always fresh - a plate of different tropical fruit right when you sit down, awesome coffee, great selection for lunch and dinner, and super friendly/attentive service. I loved the daily yoga classes and my husband surfed...

I recently finished a 4 day Ketanga fitness retreat there and had a fantastic experience. The food was extremely fresh & healthy and the owners and staff went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. The property is homey and beautiful. I highly recommend Encantada Ocean Cottages. It's definitely a gem. Thanks for the great time y'all!

I led my first international yoga retreat at this site and couldn't have been happier with the amenities, the staff and overall vibe. Two days into the trip I'd already planned to book a retreat for the same time for 2018. This place is laid-back, off the beaten path but still offers a lot of options for filling your days...
