Encanto Inn San Jose del Cabo, Baja MexicoPosted Nov 23, 2015
This is a beautiful hotel in the middle of historic San Jose del Cabo. Very quiet. There are two buildings. Had I known this, I would have requested the larger but the smaller building is nice too. So nice, that while having coffee in the atrium two tourist couples with cameras came in to take pics. There is a small chapel for weddings, a restaurant and a bar in the main building. Air conditioning worked well. If you've never stayed in Mexico the tile floor and deadbolt door might throw you but hey...you're in Mexico! I might suggest that the staff have a lesson on closing doors softly before 9AM. Some weatherstriping on the doors would solve that. Overall, great staff, clean room, pretty place conceniently located. San Jose is very different than Cabo but in a good way. Look for the multicolored art gallery across from Jazmin restaurant. This gallery is selling art direct. All original and quite good. We ate at Jazmin. Enchiladas and shrimp fajitas recommended. Skip the fish tacos. Beautiful building. Watch your step as it is full of unexpected steps both up and down. Again, welcome to Mexico. Expedia wants me to write a short story about the place. The estuary is cool. The church is an ironic reminder of the dangers of empire. I saw a sign in town that said "free pipi stop". I didn't stop. I saw a Mexican Scottish terrier who was very cute but don't ride your skateboard near him.

A lovely spot to stayPosted Oct 27, 2015
Pros: The location, the pretty gardens & the pool & the staff.
Cons: Ice machine.
Location: Shops & restaurants
I have, i years past, used the spa, but this was our first stay at the hotel. When I booked, I was not aware that the hotel had another building.....and it was in the extra building (the hotel portion) that we stayed. Clean, new, pretty..& tho not one of the suites that surround the pool, it was still a shorter walk than many big city hotel hallways. Close to the square & the shops where the art walk was is held. Carolina was extremely helpful on the phone & in person! We will stay there again!

Nice Boutique HotelPosted Oct 20, 2015
Pros: It was very quiet and quaint. Although an older hotel it was well kept and the rooms were very clean.
Cons: The pool should be kept cleaner. It was done everyday but through out the day leaves and bugs would collect on the surface.
Location: Located close to the center of San Jose in the Art District. Very close to shopping, bars, and restaurants.
It is a very small boutique hotel. Very quiet. There is a bar and restaurant on the property but they don't open till 5pm. But the hotel is very close to many bars and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved our stay there and would definitely go back. Only complaint is the debris floating in the pool during the day. It was cleaned daily but the surface collected a lot of bugs and leaves during the day. Would have liked a pool bar during the day with snacks available but it certainly did not take away from our experience.

Beautiful Boutique hotel in San JosePosted Aug 19, 2015
Pros: Everything! The pictures online were good- but don't compare to actually being there in person!
Location: There were boutique shops & restaurants within walking distance of hotel.
Stepping into the courtyard of the hotel was like walking into paradise! The fountains, plantings, decorations were awesome. Everywhere we looked- we wanted to take a picture! There was even a beautiful small chapel on the grounds- making it the perfect spot for a destination wedding or event. The hotel room was very spacious & had huge French doors going out to the courtyard. The decorating & furnishings were exquisite -everything was done with great taste! The hotel staff was very accommodating & upgraded our room to be on the courtyard. We were able to walk to a great restaurant for breakfast - that was recommended by the hotel- which was also very picturesque. Our only regret was that we only stayed one night!

Very nice hotel. Beatitiful landscaping.Posted Jul 1, 2015
Pros: Very clean.
Cons: Maybe add a jacuzzi near the pool.
Location: Close to everything. Downtown San Jose.
Very tranquil. Well maintained hotel. Pretty grounds. Friendly staff. Nice furnishings. Comfortable beds. Only issue is basic rooms are across the street in annex building. But still very pretty and secure. A great spot in San Jose del Cabo.

Eduardo's service is professional and kind.Posted Jun 21, 2015
I had no idea where we were going and was delighted with the room and staff. The gardens and room are exquisite. In the art district of downtown. Skip the touristy crowds! Experience the locals' friendliness and real Mexican vibe.

Very beautiful, meticulously maintained hotel in an excellent location: in the art district of downtown but still very quiet at a very reasonable price. A winner.
