Hacienda Encantada Resort & Spa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Hacienda Encantada Resort & Spa feels secluded, even though it’s still considered part of Cabo’s Marina Golden Zone. At the far end of the area’s development, quiet, tranquil beaches await, and a string of infinity pools cascade down the resort’s hillside. Hacienda’s traditional Mexican-style suites start at 800 square feet – book a Family Suite for twice that much space – and are outfitted in earth tones with handcrafted furniture and textiles from Guadalajara. Guests who want to venture afield can enjoy their all-inclusive privileges at Golden Zone restaurants, accessible by complimentary shuttle.

As the sun washes over the property’s Spanish Colonial architecture, wake up with a plate of Albañil-style eggs with salsa and corn tortillas. Walk along the beach and keep an eye out for dolphins cresting the waves. Cleanse the mind and body during a traditional Temazcal ceremony, where water infused with medicinal herbs steams from piping-hot rocks. Sip top-shelf tequila on an open-air patio as the day fades into night.

You just can't beat the Hacienda Encantada!!!! I have been going to Cabo for many years and have seen the changes both for the good and bad. The Hacienda Encantada was one of those changes that is for the good. This resort has it all with location, friendly customer service, accessibility to Cabo and San Jose, adult and family friendly. I 100% recommend you stay at the Encantada....

We had an extremely enjoyable stay at Hacienda Encantada this January. The weather was perfect for our week in Cabo and we enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The trip from US to Cabo was easy, we enjoyed the private car through Trans Pacifico where Luca gave us some great tips about restaurants and other places to visit. We spent a lot of time at the pool and really want to call out Billy Wagner who provided first class and always friendly service! Wait staff at all the restaurants were always friendly and very attentive to our needs. Lobby staff was fantastic from Bellboys to Front Desk to Concierge. Really couldn’t ask for a better visit and would definitely stay there again!

Check in was smooth until they tried to put us in a room with two double beds (not what we reserved). Nice room, but at best ‘partial ocean view’ as the view there was looking through the 'family' pool area. They moved us to another room that had a king size bed, but it was smaller and had no kitchenette. The lack of a kitchenette was not a big deal for us as we were all inclusive. The lack of a couch was disappointing and again ‘partial ocean view’ at best. We had the ‘Il Forno’ restaurant, bar and pools in between us and the ocean so had no clear views to watch the ocean. We were disappointed for what is described as an 'Ocean View Studio'. It was 'Partial Ocean View' at best. The first morning we discovered that the hot water at the vanity sink in the bathroom did not work. We told the bellboy who promised to have it fixed. We then went to our ‘presentation’ the next morning which turned out to be longer and higher pressure than promised. But we told ‘Jeff’ about the hot water issue and he promised to have it looked at as well. That afternoon we booked some dinners with the concierge and mentioned the hot water issue as it still wasn’t fixed. The next day it still wasn’t fixed so we stopped in at the front desk and mentioned the problem to one of the clerks who promised to have it looked at. Again, no one came to look at the problem, so finally on the third day of our stay we returned to the desk to get the problem fixed and to discuss another issue that had happened the night before (we returned from the marina to find a bunch of outdoor patio furniture had been stacked in front of our room partially blocking the door to our room), this time we spoke to the front desk manager and insisted he come and see the problem himself. There happened to be a maintenance worker working outside our room and the manager had him look at our vanity and he found a kinked supply hose under the sink. A five minute fix that took us 5 people and three days to get resolved. This is unacceptable at this ‘level’ of resort, at any resort for that matter. My wife complained to Arturo who is the Front Desk Manager and he gave my wife a $100 spa credit to make up for the inconvenience. Too little, too late in my opinion. We also booked a spot at the 'Neon Nights' New Year’s Eve party and found that it was appx $70/US$ per person. We asked if it was the only New Year's Party on the resort and told it was. We paid the admission (Really? ‘All Inclusive’ and the New Year’s Eve Party wasn’t included?) because we wanted to celebrate, and in the end the buffet meal was ‘average’ at best and then they ran out of alcohol to serve at 11:00PM. What a half hearted and unprofessional organising effort on behalf of the resort management. It was a disappointment compared to other New Year Eve parties I have experienced at different all inclusive resorts. Since it was close to our room we regularly had dinner and lunch at the ‘Il Forno’ snack bar/a la carte restaurant/bar/pool and the service and food were good. The ‘wood fired’ pizza oven and chef made a fine ‘Mexican’ pizza. (Spicy but tasty) Patrick behind the bar was a lot of fun! Celso who was a server at a few different restaurants (Il Forno, Los Riscos) was also a top notch server and very personable. The Las Marias breakfast restaurant was nice and had spectacular views of the ocean, Cabo San Lucas and Land’s End. You could regularly see whales ‘blowing’ while eating breakfast. The lady making omelettes was very swift and the omelettes/eggs were always good. The buffet was small although what was there was well prepared. We also ate at the Italian restaurant, and we happened to be there on ‘buffet’ night. The meal was fine, but not extraordinary. The Marina Fiesta resort downtown is affiliated with the Hacienda and you are allowed to eat at all of their restaurants as well (After 6:00 PM). The shuttle runs between the two resorts from 8:00AM to 10:00PM and is free. (The return trips from the marina back are 1/2 hour later, 8:30, 10:30 etc.) Other patrons we talked to said the Mexican restaurant at the Marina Fiesta was worth going to.. We did have dinner at the Baja Lobster a la carte restaurant downtown at the Marina Fiesta and the meal was quite tasty. In fact it was so good we went back again three nights later. We found it odd that you sign bills for EVERYTHING you consumed and the bills had to be closed every hour. These bills never showed on your tab at checkout, but signing tabs 3 or 4 times every day while trying to enjoy poolside refreshments was strange as no other resort we have ever visited did this. If you have a wristband, you just got what you wanted. It also allowed one to see what they charged non All Inclusive guests, and the prices were very high, even by Canadian standards. $62 US$ for breakfast for two, really? $8 US$ for a single Cuba Libre (rum & coke)? I thought Mexico was supposed to be inexpensive. Playa del Carmen or Puerta Vallarta was never that expensive off resort. In fact you could get a bucket of 8 beers at the marina in Cabo San Lucas for $10 US$! We also noticed over the last four days we were there that the water level in the 'infinity pools' at the ‘Il Forno’ are pools fell about three inches which removes the 'infinity' effect of the pool. I didn't affect the swim-ability of the pools, but it did't seem right to me. It is unfortunate because the facilities themselves are clean and modern. The location on a hill at a point offers breathtaking vistas of the ocean, Cabo San Lucas, Land’s End and El Archo. The buildings are ‘relatively’ well maintained (with the exception of the tap in our room) and the grounds are perfectly groomed. My opinion is ‘fantastic facility and location, poor management, bad business model’. This is from a client perspective. The New Year’s Eve Party was a fantastic opportunity for them to showcase the property and they totally blew it by cheaping out and charging ‘All Inclusive’ guests and then presenting them with an average meal and running out of refreshments before midnight. In the end, would I return to Cabo San Lucas? Certainly. Would I return to the Hacienda Encantada? Probably not. For all the reasons I just listed plus a couple more. There really isn’t a ‘beach’ here and they have no evening activities like a theater or nightclub. The place shuts down at 10:00PM. I would try to find a resort along Medano Beach that has a theater. This would allow great access to the tourist strip by the marina and a great swimmable beach and still have access to a little nightlife at the resort.

The views are stunning, the rooms are clean, and the pools are warm. But above all the people are outstanding. We had the pleasure of being served poolside by Billy for our entire stay. He was the consummate professional: attentive, kind, and funny! And at dinner at Los Riscos we found more of the same outstanding service from Brenda. We are sad to leave Hacienda but we cannot wait to return and that is in large part to the people that work here and make it such a special place.

My family has stayed at Hacienda Encantada several times and have always had great experiences there. This time was no exception as Oscar, Hector, Joel, Manuel and the other front office staff set us up with a wonderful room and assisted with whatever requests we had. We were there this year from Dec 29 - Jan 7 and although it was a little crowded at the adults only pool, we were able to enjoy the facilities without any issues. The taco bar is great and the kids loved it from past visits. Staff at the outdoor areas - Billy and Paco in particular - were exceptional - very personable and helpful. A couple of suggestions - we didn't take the all-inclusive option that most other Cabo locations are moving toward - highly appreciate Hacienda Encantada not mandating that; get a room as high up as possible for better views; early is better than late for dinner reservations. We also booked through Interval so can't comment on the pricing as compared to other resorts in the area. We'll definitely come back!
