“Enchanting Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

My husband and I just returned from one week at Encantada, Tulum Mexico. This brand new hotel blew us away. We were welcomed by friendly and charming hosts who escorted us to our captivating room. Once inside our upper level ocean view room, it was hard to leave. In fact we spent the majority of our week on or near this lovely property. Our beautiful bed was hoisted to the top of the palyapa with ropes. Sleep came easy as we imagined our bed gently swaying in the ocean breezes, which blew in from giant screened doors that over look the beach. The beach seems almost private at times, as it lies north of the bigger hotels. We started each day with a colorful array of fresh tropical fruit, yogurt and granola made by the chef Rufino, yum! This breakfast is included but there are other choices available upon request. I recommend the huevos rancheros at least once. Don't forget to ask for a latte or americana made by Carlos, excellente'. The spa is a wonderful way to relax after traveling for 3 days, you can't beat a 90 minute massage in the room, outstanding. I highly recommend the boutique hotel & spa, we can't wait to return.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms!

My husband and I just got back our latest vacation in Tulum where we stayed at a new hotel, Encantada. It was definitely the nicest place in Tulum we have ever stayed! The rooms were gorgeous. We stayed in an upper level beach front room which had amazing views of the ocean. We could lie in bed at night and see the moon over the water. Huge decks, compared to other places we have stayed! The glass block showers were really beautiful as well. Every detail, from the palapa ceiling, comfy beds and super soft sheets made all the difference. Their beach is located on a gorgeous, very quiet, section of Tulum, near Las Ranitas and Be Tulum. We loved the breakfast in the morning which was included with the room. The homemade, whole wheat bread was delicious and I LOVED the soy milk lattes. Carlos, the waiter/bartender made us amazing margaritas, which we had with the lunch special, “tacos dorado”. Really delicious food! Too bad they are not open for dinner yet since it’s hard to find really good authentic Mexican food on the beach.
We especially would recommend this place for a romantic, couples only, get away as they do not take small children. Also perfect for a ladies get away and spa vacation. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Each room we looked at was gorgeous - you will not be disapointed regardless.

Encantada is a little piece of heaven in the warm Carribean!
Owners Lisa and Mike graciously welcomed us and insured that our stay was everything we could have hoped for!
Their daughter Nicky is very knowledgable in surrounding areas of interest and was happy to make recomendations for us. While there is much it see and do in Tulum, we found our favorite place to be was on the beachfront enjoying the calm and peaceful setting.
Carlos was most happy to serve his speciality drinks to us under the shade of the palm trees.
My husband and I were delighted to find a truly "enchanted" vacation spot and look forward to another relaxing return in the near future!
