Hard to imagine but Encantada Ocean Cottages were even prettier than the pictures on the website. The pool was perfect. We stayed in the Ocean front cottage with double doors opening onto a covered porch facing the ocean. The facility was clean, comfortable and if we needed anything Tiffany (owner) and Adam (manager) took care of it. We had limited...

We visited Esterillos for a Friend's wedding, and stayed at Encantada at a Poolside Cottage for a single night. Big, clean and cozy accommodations, very friendly atmosphere and just meters away from the beach.

My husband and I stayed at Encantada for 4 out of 10 nights of our honeymoon. We loved it so much that we came back on our last day to have dinner! The staff was friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed getting to know Adam and Maria. The food was AMAZING!! Everything was fresh and well cooked -- thanks Elena!...

We stayed in the private retreat, which is small but adequate for two people. The bed is HUGE and there is a hammock on the landing to sit in, but not really a good space for two to hang out. In the room, there isn't much space to put clothes away and a single chair to sit in, which I...

We stayed in the oceanfront cottage at Encantada for 3 nights around Thanksgiving. It was wonderful! The cottages themselves are beautiful (the ocean front has big front doors and you can lay in bed and look out at the ocean), the grounds are beautiful, the pool is clean and a good size, and you can't beat the beach being just...

Loved this earthy hotel on the beach. I didn't stay but did yoga there which was one of the best yoga classes I ever attended. The view of the beach from the class was amazing. The owners of this hotel are on hand and very friendly and helpful . They hosted a party for 40 of us at the last...

Nice room, great pool, immense beach for long walks or jog or run, good surfing location. Yoga. Meditation. Cute garden with flowers and tropical fruits. Away from main road and hubbub, very quiet. Recommended!

My daughter and I 'found' Encantada Ocean Cottages purely by chance as we were touring Costa Rica by car. What a 'find' this proved to be. Everything was as perfect as could be. The staff friendly, the food terrific, the rooms were lovely. In fact, everything about Encantada was a delightful surprise Peaceful & serene, beautiful pool, the beach was...

I just held a yoga and mindfulness retreat here and this place took the cake. I could not recommend a better place to hold a group trip. The owners and the staff make you feel like family. You are in good hands when you stay at this place. Everything you could ever want is here, peace and serenity, amazing meals,...
