We came for a yoga retreat with about 20 people and had an amazing time. The staff was great and made amazing food. They helped us with anything we needed. It's a wonderful place to stay! Definitely recommend the surf lessons with Alfredo too

We ended our Costa Rica trip with two nights in Encantada Ocean Cottages. We stayed in one of the seven cottages of the property. The cottage was very clean and beautifully decorated. Our 6-year-old son loved the mezzanine and took the bed up there.

We spent as much time on the beach as at the pool. The beach was incredibly beautiful. We took walks, and enjoyed the views, the waves and the wild life.

Our son took his surf lesson and he loved the experience. Alfredo was a great instructor.

Although we didn't take advantage of it, they had yoga classes every day.

We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced.

Luis and his team were very friendly and made our stay memorable. It's impossible not to want to go back there. We wished we had time to stay longer.

Pura vida!

Room Tip: There are only 7 cottages. It looked like there were pretty much the same.

Encantada Ocean Cottages were just what I was hoping for plus more. It was the perfect location on a beautiful and quiet beach which displayed the most unbelievable sunsets. The cottage was spacious and clean. Every meal left me excited for the next. The food was fresh and delicious. The owners and the staff were friendly and welcoming. I'm already planning a return trip. Pura Vida!

Words can’t describe this beautiful oceanfront resort. I came with a group for a yoga retreat. The property is charming, clean and beautiful. Everyday we had 3 delicious meals. The owners are a darling couple who see to your every need. I can’t wait to come back. I highly recommend this resort.

We joined a group for a yoga retreat at the Encantada Ocean Cottages--it was a great experience. We arrived late at night a bit disoriented and woke up to see the sea right in front of the hotel and the yoga area. The beach was one of the most beautiful and inviting of any that I have visited---suited for endless walks, the sea has a sandy bottom that stretches far out--to accommodate swimmers of all skills and sizes as well as those who want to do some surfing. The hotel also has a lovely pool.

The hotel has lovely, simple and very clean rooms. The food was terrific and very healthy. The staff were outstanding--very welcoming, helpful. All around this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Only a few rooms have a view of the sea however all the community spaces includes views and opportunities to enjoy the lovely sea air.
