The staff at Encantada are some of the best of any place we've traveled. From the owners, to the housekeepers, grounds crew, Yoga teacher, and restaurant staff, they all know how to be hospitable, kind, welcoming, and courteous. My wife's second time here, my first, it won't be a lst for either of us. Already planning a return trip with the kids!

The attention from the staff was excellent. They were helpful and friendly. Roger took us on a hike to see some waterfalls; we swam there and got to see some monkeys along the way.
