“Truly a hidden gem”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

This the most charming and welcoming place to stay while visiting Patzquaro. It is immaculately clean and each room unique with its very own charm. Breakfast is included and always creative and healthy. I highly recommend Casa Encantada and look forward to staying there again.

Stayed June 2013, travelled with friends

Stayed 3 nights in The Nest suite. Small but comfortable and the price is great. Patzcuaro and neighboring towns were all great to visit. Highly recommend a visit! Location is great; the squares and many restaurants are an easy walking distance.

Just stayed at Casa Encantada and it was as wonderful as ever. New art, new chairs on the patio and a fabulous Mexican breakfast. We stayed longer than usual and really enjoyed ourselves. I think the staff is one of the best in Mexico. Do yourself a favor and at least a few days.

Room Tip: The Colonial is great for a couple with a friends.

After a day of driving, the warm welcome, the landscaped patios and well appointed rooms at Casa Encantada left us feeling like we had arrived at an oasis in central Patzcuaro. Just a short walk from the main square, shops and restaurants, this boutique hotel is a great choice for anyone visiting Patzcuaro and the area. The gas fireplace and heated mattresses in our room were a welcome feature as it cooled at night when we visited in February. Victoria was very helpful and arranged an excellent guide who wove the history of Mexico into his description of the buildings and sites of Patzcuaro. We highly recommend Casa Encantada.

I loved staying at the Hotel Casa Encantada. Patzcuaro is a wonderful place to visit, and staying at the Encantada made Patzcuaro even more lovely. The location of the hotel is perfect, but beyond that the service, the environment, the rooms, everything! There is so much attention to detail and one could spend hours just roaming around the hotel. The rooms have lovely features like bottled water, gas fire places, free wifi, heated mattresses, good quality shampoos, etc. The breakfast is delicious too! If you need a driver, ask for Jose Luis! He is a nice young man who is very courteous and likes to practice his good English.

My wife and I stayed for a few nights in Feb and then again in early March. As another reviewer also staying in Zihuatanejo stated one can have just enough sun and sand. We took the bus to Uruapan and from there to Patzcuaro with no problems. Yes there were lots of federales and autodefensas on the roads but they had no interest in busses.
This small boutique hotel is a gem about a block from the town square. Victoria and Louis are gracious and very helpful hosts. The décor of the rooms and indeed the whole hotel shows excellent taste. The rooms are very inviting when you step inside. There are 2 patios where one can sit and read or relax. The included breakfast is freshly prepared and adequate. Eating at the communal table for breakfast is a great way to meet fellow travellers.
Victoria and Louis are willing to advise re tours of the areas, guides to use etc. We took a tour to some surrounding villages to see the local crafts.

This is one of the best small hotels we have every stayed at

Room Tip: none of the rooms have views so can be a bit dark

I live near Zihuatanejo, and drive up to Patzcuaro a few times a year, and always stay at Casa Encantada. The hotel and staff never fail to make me happy - everyone is friendly and helpful, and the property itself is so pretty and relaxing. Behind the wall on the street are a variety of rooms, from small, two person rooms (I stayed in "The Nest" this time) to large suites (The San Fransisco is wonderful). A nice breakfast is included in the price, too! They allow dogs, and my lab loves going there. The hotel is just up the street from the large square in Patzcuaro (a three minute walk) where there are shops, restaurants and entertainment. We saw a drum and bugle corps competition one evening, and another day featured dancers. I can't recommend Casa Encantada enough.

Room Tip: They are all great!
