Just finished our YK Abundance Re-boot Retreat at Encantada. This tucked away oceanfront escape is comfortable, clean and lovely! Our group ate completely vegan and gluten-free, with awesome organic fresh fruit and veggie smoothies in the morning. The meals were tasty and beautifully presented. Surfing lessons and beach horseback rides capped off a wonderful trip. Highly recommended!

Our family celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary at Encantada from Dec. 27 to Jan. 3, 2017, their busiest time of year. Tiffany,Nome, and staff were great to fill all our needs: we rented at 7 cottages, one for each family, great food in open air dining, special anniversary dinner on Dec. 31 with bonfire and fireworks on the beach, rented...

Encantada is wonderful - the owners and staff are top notch, the location is beautiful, the food is great and there are tons of activities. Surf and boogie board just steps from your cabin or swim in the pool. Tons of other activities near by. Our family had a great week there and we highly recommend it. We would love...

From the moment of first contact while we were still in the States to our last goodbye, Encantada was superior. Adam, Gemelle and Daniel were exceptional, making our family stay everything I hoped it would be. The beach was spectacular. The waves were the largest I have ever seen and at low tide the exploring of snails, sandollars and crabs...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Encantada for a week in the beachfront room. The room had a beautiful view and a big, comfortable patio overlooking the beach. Oh and the bed!! The bed is big and comfortable with the softest sheets I've ever felt. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals (a gas burner, pans,...

I cannot say enough about the owners and staff. They are amazingly hospitable and accommodating. There is no need to go out for meals when at Encantada. The food and service are top notch. The beach is flat and wide with volley ball, lots of hammocks, boogie boards and surfing. I can't say enough and already want to be back...

We stayed at Encantada for two nights over Christmas. It was a mistake to only stay 2 nights. The property is beautiful. The beach is incredible. We wished we had stayed 3 or 4 nights. We have four kids ages 16, 15, 12 and 10. They loved Encantada. We spent hours in the ocean and the pool. The food was...

Our family of 4 had a lovely stay at Encantada. The service and food is excellent, beach glorious and staff very attentive. I chose the 2 bedroom cabin/villa not realizing it was by the parking lot. I would have chosen one of the other villas had I known although none of them is 2 bedroom but can sleep up to...

We were lucky to find this beautiful place to relax and unwind on our first trip to Costa Rica. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer than 5 nights. Next year we will! The beach is footsteps away and always visible on the grounds and restaurant. The manager always had great area recommendations and the food was top...

A hidden little gem of a resort in Esterillos Este. We rented the two bedroom villa and it had everything we needed for our stay. The pool was clean and the gardens provided a nice spot to sit and relax. I loved the long walks on the beach and the sunsets were amazing. Breakfast was delicious and included in our...
