El Encanto Inn & Suites Boutique Hotel
Ranked #29 of 43 Hotels in San Jose del Cabo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 May 2013

My husband and I got married at El Encanto Inn this past April. I can't say enough about this charming boutique hotel. The service was top-notch (Eduardo is a true gentleman and a master at hospitality), the rooms were clean and decorated beautifully, the pool and landscaping were extremely well-kept and the spa was amazing! Almost everyone in our group got a massage in the spa, and everyone that did said it was the best massage in their entire life!!! Keep in mind we all live in northern California where some of the best spas in the USA are located (we live right north of Napa). Most of our family and friends stayed on-site and it was the perfect size for an intimate celebration with our closest friends and family. The chapel on-site is absolutely magical (Capilla Josefina) and was the perfect venue for us. Not to mention you are right in the middle of the art district in San Jose del Cabo...just walking distance to the best shops downtown. If you want to experience the true culture of this amazing city - this is a great place to stay!
Thank you El Encanto for a perfect experience:) We will be back!!

Room Tip: Stay in La Mexicana or the Honeymoon Suite!

Right in the heart of the Art District in San Jose Del Cabo, this charming hotel offers a quaint and comfortable stay. Extremely clean, accommodating, friendly staff and a beautifully tranquil central pool area and gardens make this Inn a 'must stay' if you yearn to be away from the thick of the busy touristy area's. The grounds are shared with a beautiful chapel and large outdoor terrace and Palapa that serve as a great place for a destination wedding and reception. All that you need is within walking distance of the Inn, from a famed Tequila Shop to a French bakery to the many galleries and the wonderfully authentic Mexican Restaurant, Jazmen's. Don't forget to check out the art walk on Thursday evenings!

The hotel has a great, central location just a few blocks from San Jose center. Find within the same quaint block several restaurants, including the Baja Brewing Co., Thai, Italian, and a wifi-enabled coffee shop; as well as a few art galleries.

You can prob acquire more details about amenities at the hotel's site, but the place offers parking, a pool, and even a cute, little chapel.

Room Tip: Note that the hotel has two separate buildings across the street from each other. The pool section i...

Thank You, we do have info on our Spa and other amenities on the website.
You were here at my favorite time of the year when the fresh morning air is filled with all the morning freshness of the local estuary and local farms. When any time you can walk in the area and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of SanJose del Cabo.

Location, location, location. If you want the downtown experience. Only two blocks from the Mission Church and Main Square. And on the edge of the Thursday evening Art Walk. The galleries stay open from 5-9pm Thursdays from Nov-June. We had a 2BR 1 bath with full kitchen and living and dining area. Quiet ceiling fans and AC if you want. Beautiful courtyard with swimming pool. Our room rate included breakfast at Jasmin Restaurant a block and a half away. Great breakfast, but don't go there for dinner. The staff at El Encanto Inn couldn't have been nicer and more helpful.

The historic Encanto Inn in San Jose is a lovely hideaway with comfortable luxury poolside. This hotel is worth checking out, the staff are fabulous and the rooms are very comfortable. The location is right downtown San Jose,perfect for the Thursday night art walk.

We made a last minute change in plans to spend a couple of days in San Jose del Cabo after several in Todos Santos. We felt fortunate to end up at the El Encanto. The room was large and comfortable, although a bit dark in the bathroom. The bathroom is created by a high wall that is more of a partition, so it isn't that private.

The front desk people were very helpful, friendly and efficient. We had one problem when a blown light bulb left us without any power in the room. They were on it immediately.

The grounds are beautiful and the pool great. It's actually heated! We liked the location on the edge of the historic district. Quiet, but easy to walk to anywhere you might want to go in the beautiful historic centro.

The breakfast provided was at the restaurant down the street. We enjoyed it both mornings. Coffee was great!

After visiting La Paz and Loreto we thought it was time for Cabo. Not San Lucas, but the real Cabo, Cabo del San Jose. We read too many reviews online and in travel books. I had no desire to have the mega-resort, all-inclusive, don't-experience-real-local-life experience. I finally called El Encanto direct and spoke with Eduardo. That call sealed the deal. Eduardo was extremely helpful and I was convinced that I made the right choice.
After we arrived and saw the garden and the pool we knew this hotel was magic. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very comfortable and clean, and the location is incredible. The art district of San Jose is outside the front door. Restaurants, galleries, and gift shops surround you once you are on the street. If you require more privacy and aren't interested in the pool, there are rooms located across the street and that setting is also beautiful.
If you want to get a feel for the town, bring some good walking shoes and try El Encanto. The main town plaza and church is 5 minutes from your room. The beach and mega-resorts are a 25 minute walk away. If you stay, try to make sure your visit includes a Thursday night. The art district is alive that night with an art walk-don't miss it.

Your considerate comments will be passed directly to reception and other staff in our morning meetings. They are very much appreciated and help everyone here feel noticed for thier hard work.
