Nice small hotel right in the "old" part of town, within walking distance of restaurants, art galleries... Rooms in the annex across the street are adequate. Only complaint was a noisy air conditioning unit.

It was nice to find an affordable hotel in the Art District of San Jose Del Cabo. What wonderful setting both outside and inside the rooms, the garden around the pool also very charming. Service was excellent & reception staff very helpful. It was too bad that San Jose music scene overpowered the serenity of the hotel. It was quite...

On our way to a dive trip in the Socorros, we spent a night at this hotel. The property is a little difficult to find (our taxi driver got lost) but it is right on the edge of the art district and very convenient to the shops and the central square. It is divided into two parts, one of which...

As others have noted, El Encanto is perfectly situated in the art district of San José and within easy walking distance of the plaza and restaurants. The desk and housekeeping staffs are efficient, friendly and professional. The grounds and pool are meticulously maintained. We took one of the poolside suites and were very pleased. We highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed here one night before our flight and would say this is a good alternative to one of the hotels out by the airport. The locations is ideal for walking and taking in the historic district, with art galleries and restaurants close by. The actual hotel is small and is divided into two separate buildings. The annex, where we...

Walking to the Central square is still one of my favorite things to do. The plaza is full of life with activities and performances going on regularly. Great restaurants line the plaza, vendors with carts full of local sweets and staples attract the whole family. It's a great night out, back to a simpler time, with lots of nice people....
