My company recently hosted two fitness retreats at Encantada and they were amazing. The service, property, and food were top notch, and you can't beat the location or weather! Ketanga Fitness Retreats will certainly be back for future retreats, and I highly recommend Encantada for any kind of wellness or relaxing getaway!

Even though it was a bit of a trip to get there from the airport, it was well worth it! Encantada sets off of a stretch of beach that is not only private but goes for miles. I have traveled to many places and have never enjoyed both sunrise and sunset in such a majestic way. You can actually feel...

This is a beautiful property located on the beach. The views are amazing, especially the sunrise and sunsets. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. This is the perfect place for a low key get away in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

I spent 5 days at this lovely oceanside resort with a group of women on an Adventure/Fitness retreat. I can't say enough positive things about this resort! The rooms were spacious and very clean with cute front porches that included comfy seating where we had some great conversations and also hammocks for those times when you just wanted to chill...

Great location. Plenty to do. Staff and owners very helpful. Rooms were well acquainted. Breakfast was wonderful. Someone always available for questions. Pool was wonderful. Very Relaxing. I would definitely come back. My husband and I came with our 19 and 21 year old children who also loved it.

This is a lovely place and we really enjoyed our 10 day stay here on our first visit to Costa Rica from the UK. Esterillos Este is very small and out of the way although just a 5 min drive off the main Highway 34 and there are only about three other venues along a massive and almost peopleless stretch...

We were there for a long weekend. Great out-of-the-way location right on the beach...very quiet! Everything was very clean. A/C in the units was a great bonus...made it easy to sleep at night! Owners, and their very friendly staff, always made sure we had everything we needed.

I stayed at Encantada Ocean Cottages as part of a yoga retreat. This was a wonderful place to stay. The yoga shala overlooks the ocean which is a spectacular view, The pool, which is surrounded by the cabins is drop dead gorgeous. One can literally walk right in. Meals are served overlooking the ocean and if you dine during sunset...
