“Unique, romantic getaway”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We stayed here for a weekend away from our kids, and it was perfect for that. I have no idea what the occupancy was like, because you really can't tell based on the layout. The vibe at the pool was fantastic, but the water unheated so no one used it. We loved our room---the bed was incredibly comfortable. The only drawback was our dinner at the hotel--my husband's meal was completely cold, and the whole thing was just so so. I see other people had different experiences, so maybe we just had an off night there. The landscape is very striking and beautiful, but bring comfortable walking shoes to get around the grounds. I'd highly recommend this hotel for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: Staying in the back (rooms 1-10, I think) would alleviate some of the noise from the road.

The whole anti-resort concept is very appealing. Encuentro Guadalupe is a wonderful escape unlike any other. Situated in the heart of the Baja wine country, the views are beyond spectacular. We got particularly starry nights, and the sights were beyond amazing. We were treated magnificently by a very friendly staff, and while it's true not every single request was met, we were always welcomed with a smile. Excellent food, excellent wine, the rooms were very comfortable, equipped with wi-fi and AC. We'd be delighted to be back.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here around mid September. The location and the landscape it's wonderful: it really looks like in the photos.
We where thrilled until we where inside our cabin. It was dirty. We found hairs in the hand soap and on the sheets. Also our covers were dirty.
In reality I would have no problem if the hotel was a cheap stay, one of those were you stay when you're only looking for a place to sleep. However, for the price you pay you here you'd expect a pristine room and a costume service that exceeded your expectations... you won't get it.
In sum, staying one night for the experience was worth it however I wouldn't stay there again.

We went as a group for a wedding. The hotel is 35-40 minutes away from Ensenada, but its nearby to most wine producers.

It has a breath taking view form the main reception deck, terrific sangrias and pretty good handmade cigars.

The rooms are awesome and secluded and scattered through the propertie.
The pool is great, excellent service, pretty good, simple restaurant and you can see the stars from the hot thub and pool area.
Plus have a little fire in your chimmeney outside of your personal terraza.watching the mountains

Keep in mind that this is a place for relaxing, to drink wine and relax, as long as you are on a easy schedule and visit a couple of wineyards and a couple of really good restaurants nearby this is the place.

Tha manager and all it's crew was great, we had a really good time. Thanks

Bring a good hat and sunblock

Room Tip: Choose the rooms closer to the pool area if you are into comfort, if you are into absolute privacy...

Stopped by to have lunch at noon but since it's not served til 1:00 we just had drinks. No one approached us to let us know so we sat unhelped for about 15 minutes. Super local brews and the sangria was very, very nice. The service is lacking but once you get someone's attention they are nice as can be. We had a tour of the wine cava and saw the video which I highly recommend.

Based on the pics and little I knew about this place, I was very unsure of what to expect. Within an hour of arriving though I was I love. Just the view alone is worthy of 5 stars! The staff was super attentive and very friendly. Our room was #14 which I would highly recommend because I thought we had one of the best views available. I love that there are no phones in the rooms and communication is done with a walkie talkie:-)
We took advantage of the pool everyday and ate at the restaurant next to it everyday and loved everything we had.
I would highly recommend this place if you are looking to disconnect from your day to day busy life.

Ps- their wines are amazing!

Room Tip: Request the side above the lobby for the best views.

We stopped here for lunch on a very hot August day. The folks at Encuentro were all very nice and welcoming. We had several plates of local cheeses, beets and the caprese salad. The food was excellent.. I would also recommend the sangria which was absolutely tasty and refreshing. The boys enjoyed some locally brewed beer which was served icy cold.

The architecture of the building and view are amazing. Great place to stop and eat while touring the valley. We will be back soon.
