Everything about this place is magical... the cozy cottage, beautiful grounds, excellent food, friendly staff, yoga, and of course the ocean! The location is great too! It is close to Manuel Antonio Park, Jaco, plenty of restaurants and a convenient market nearby We can't wait to come back!

Hotel's Favourite
I have stayed at Encantada 3 times and have never been disappointed. The beachfront boutique style resort is such a peaceful place with the most amazing staff. The food is so freshly prepared and delicious. I attended 2 yoga retreats here and loved it so much I took 16 of my friends and family back for me to host my own retreat. I can not say enough great things about this resort!!

I have now been to Encantada twice for yoga and energy retreats. The staff is so kind & gracious, the food is incredible, and the location is perfect. Lots of instagramable views, cute & comfy casitas, hammocks, yoga, a fantastic restaurant on site, you literally don’t need to leave. You can get surf lessons from Alfredo, a second-to-none spicy margarita (or 3) from Daniel or Roger, and amazing yoga every morning. They have Sunday brunch & happy hours with live music, they have plenty of hammocks & shady spots when you have had too much sun, but still want to listen to the waves, it is a literal paradise. Want to go into Jaco for souvenirs and art? Tiffant can get you a driver. I could live here. Perhaps eventually, I will.

The location is great not only close to San Jose but it is beach front and I think it is the best. Customer service is excellent, owners and employees are very nice and warm people. Food is the best! No doubt! Amenities organized by the owners are very good. It is clean! It is safe! And very relaxing place.

We recently visited Encantada with our family and a group of close friends... It was hands down the best vacation we have ever had! The owners- Tiffany and Nome set up everything so smoothly for us whether it was a shuttle service, zip lining, or riding horses on the beach, all of our activities were perfect!! The resort itself is so charming and well maintained! There is so much to do whether it’s yoga, playing in the pool or the beautiful beach that is just steps away from the resort! Breakfast, coffee, snacks, cocktails and especially dinner were so delicious and wonderful! I can’t wait to come back... definitely would love to make this a yearly tradition to visit Encantada! Many thanks to Tiffany and Nome and all of their amazing staff!!!
