And it was just as we remembered.
Great place. Calm, relaxed and genteel, with a dose of romance thrown in.
One qualification: we stayed in both the beachfront upper and lower units. Cielo and Arena, I believe. Anyway, they are essentially identical, but the lower unit has a significant amount of noise from the upper unit floor, at least in comparison to the quiet of the upper. Also, the path to the beach goes fairly closely by the front of Arena and it can be somewhat jarring to hear people speaking as they go by, at least after spending a few days in the comparative solitude and quiet of Cielo. In the future, I would probably prefer any of the three other beachfront units.
The restaurant seems to have undergone a slight menu change since our last visit. We had empanadas a couple of times, and they were tremendous. The "continental" breakfast remains as a stellar start to the day, and Carlos is a wonderful asset to the place.
Wifi needs some work, but honestly, I don't know that I care. I don't come to Encantada to work or stay connected. I come to Encantada to relax and enjoy the company of my beautiful wife, and it delivers those objectives with deep satisfaction.
