I stayed in Loft 17, which has a gorgeous view of the Valle, perched between cliffside boulders above the Lobby/Restaurant. The resort is perfect for the adventurous traveler, who values special experiences and not the run of the mill. The accommodations are in what look like rusty shipping containers placed vertically on the hillside, and feature a smallish room with a bed, a couple of chairs next to a small dining table, and an exposed hanging rod for clothes with a tiny bureau for your folded items.
The bathroom is on the small side with a waterfall shower, a sink and toilet.
I have two complaints: the interior decor is stunning but impractical. The lighting in the bedroom is from Edison filament bulbs, so they are dim and glow orange, and there are no reading lights beside the bed. And there wasn't a hairdryer in the bathroom.
It is a hike (literally!) to the lobby/restaurant or to the pool, which also has a nice open restaurant. In one day, I climbed (thank you, FitBit) the equivalent of 50 flights of stairs going to and from my room. This is not a great place for people with issues walking on trails. While Encuentro does offer a van pick up service, it can be very time consuming to use it, and walking in nice weather is much easier (and with the stunning environs, not to be missed).
I will definitely return, with a hair dryer and my own lightbulb to read by!
