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 Albaņil-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.

The hotel rooms are absolutely beautiful, and the grounds are very nice. The food was very good - we had the meal plan and enjoyed champagne brunches nearly every morning. I want to thank Jesus Olivas from Las Marias restaurant. He gave us great service. Also want to thank the following people from Los Ricos restaurant - Brenda Lazaro for her hospitality and also Billy and Jesus Manuel Rodriguez Infante for their superior service. It is interesting that to us it seemed like all the the people at Los Ricos and some of the people at Los Marias offered excellent service and a friendly attitude. Although the food on the other side of the resort was very good at Barolo, ElEncanto, and IlForno, it almost seemed like we were in a different resort - the staff were very friendly to each other, talking and joking around amongst themselves, but didn't show the warmth to their guests. They need to kick up their hospitality a notch. There is a gourmet restaurant on property called LaTrajinera that has a dress code of long pants and closed-toe shoes for men. I think this was a copout. A man can look very nice in "smart casual" attire and still wear dress shorts and nice sandals. Concierge let us down a little. We asked one to book a dinner reservation and she said she would call us back to confirm and we never heard from her. We wanted to book a fishing trip and get a shared boat and was told by the concierge that if we went on a tour of the property that he might "help us out trying to find a shared boat." But, when I spoke to the concierge at the sister hotel at the marina, he said it would be no problem to set up a shared trip. Overall the experience was excellent and I would return.

This was our first visit to Cabo. Had it not been for a destination wedding, I doubt we would have planned to go to Cabo. So glad we did. The weather was fantastic every day! And the views fabulous! We stayed at this resort between April 12th thru April 19th. We booked our resort thru Destination Wedding site, and booked our own flight separately. The transfer to and from the resort was included with our resort booking. All that we had to do was to inform our contact with our flight details and a transfer document was emailed to us. We were warmly greeted upon our arrival. Our luggage was tagged and looked after while we were directed into the lobby for check-in. Ivan checked us in, and he was very thorough with information as to what was included in our all-inclusive stay. He also armed us with a resort map, and information on the types of foods offered at each restaurant, and information on the other facilities. He also mentioned the free shuttle that could take us to the Marina every 2 hours. The Marina is about 15 minutes away by highway. We did take the free shuttle on 2 occasions. To go, one must obtain a ticket for the trip in and one for the return trip. Normally each ticket costs $5 but it was free for all-inclusive patrons. The Marina offers souvenir vendor booths, several places to eat, all kinds of water outings, and a large high-end shopping mall. There are also a few affiliated resort restaurants which will honour your all-inclusive privilege provided you dine after 6pm. We did not partake but did however take a local transit bus to Walmart. The bus stop is not far from the north end of the mall. Walmart is about a 1/2 hour walk away but the walk is along a highway in the hot sun! The bus fare is a mere 13 pesos one-way, which is less than a US $1. The bus driver will take $1 and will give you change in pesos. The resort also has time-share members who have to pay for foods ordered at all the bars and restaurants. So all menus have prices. So possibly to keep track of earned gratuities or to keep the staff honest, an itemized bill is presented to everyone for signatures. Prices are a bit steep but we didn't have to pay a cent for the fabulous foods and amazing cocktails. Breakfast is offered as a buffet every day at the Marias Restaurant from 7am to noon. This is great for those people who love to sleep in. On our last day, we were told by one of our favourite waiters Yonatan that we could order a la carte too! Yonatan always has a smile on his face, and is very attentive. I had brought a purse that day which he noticed, and brought an iron stand table side so that I could hang my purse to keep it off the floor! Lunch is made a la carte at the restaurant pool-bars. There are 3 pool areas: the main Activities Pool (La Pergola grill), the adult-only pool (El Patio grill) and at the pool by the newer building (Il Forno). There are proper tables in the shade, or you can order food from your loungers from servers that come around. The 3 grills offer some different food options. Like hand-made pizzas from Il Forno, and sushi from El Patio to name just a couple. Il Forno is also open well into the evening for dinner as well. While sitting up at the bar of El Patio, you can watch the 3 cooks/chefs hard at work. There also stools in front of the sushi prep area. The counter is actually the glassed-in refrigerated showcase of raw fish. The sushi is surprisingly good and always freshly made when ordered! Dinner is offered at actual a la carte restaurants. Reservations are required and can be made by calling Concierge. Restaurants include la Trajinera (International), Borolo (Italian), and Los Ricos (Mesquite Grill and Seafood). Menus are extensive! Most of the items fall under "all-inclusive" but there are a few items which have an extra cost but they are well-noted on the menu! For example Lobster or certain steaks have a $25US extra charge. That said, you can still order good steak without any extra cost. Food is excellent and service always top-notch! Additionally, there is a drop-in El Eden (the tequila bar & grill) which is open from late afternoon to well into the night. We had hoped to check it out, but with wedding activities (rehearsal dinner and the wedding), we simply ran out of time! On our first night, we ate at Los Ricos. The view from high up and overlooking the water's edge was amazing! And our server was the best we had. Unfortunately, I have forgotten his name and never got him again. He was young, happy, pleasant and energetic! On our last night, we ate at the Borolo on the patio. The manager came out to check on us several times. He even offered advice. Several wait staff paid much attention to us, always eager to please. Many were running up to the bar and down, and back and forth into the restaurant indoors. This time, we got a card from one of the waiters who we liked very much. His name is Celso Felix Conzalo Daniel Jared... or perhaps this string of names is of more than waiter? Though his name on his name tag was long. The pools are beautiful, clean and oh so warm! The adult-only pool which overlooks the coast, and the one by the new building are both multi-level pools, each having an affinity pool where the water flows off the edge. The third pool is known as the Activity Pool and is central to the resort grounds. And I counted 3 large hot tubs throughout the grounds. One is by the adult pool, the other by the new building, and the third is by the tequila bar & grill. There is no sandy beach on the premises... the coast is of course rocky as you would expect f the Baja coast or more specifically of the Cabo area. There is one off site somewhere but you need transportation to get there. But with 3 large pools and hot tubs, we were content. Though my husband enjoys wading amongst the waves of an ocean -- something he did not get to do on this trip. One thing we did miss.... every Friday they offer free horseback rides. But I'm told it books up quickly. Perhaps it's best to book upon arrival. As for included drinks, there is a long menu of included cocktails. As well you can order brandy and other included hard liquor, wine, beer and even sparkling wine. Too bad I didn't notice the menu of cocktails earlier as I would've liked to try each and every drink lol! As for our luxury room, it was large and had ample storage space for clothes. The mini-bar was in fact par of a full-sized fridge in our kitchenette with cooktop. The beds were very comfortable, and the bedding of high quality pristinely white sheets and white duvet. There were ample towels, and even face cloths! The bathroom had a double sink vanity with shelves below to store all of your stuff, and a separate toilet area, a Jacuzzi bathtub, and large separate shower. And the balcony was large with 2 comfortable padded outdoor chairs with an ottoman, and a lounging bench too! And having robes is a nice touch too! The resort grounds is hilly. So there are inclines here and there and everywhere. Even from going from a short distance from point A to point B, you can expect to walk both up and down! And if you want to walk to the lobby building, expect to be out of breath! The climb is long and steep. And the adult-only pool area is at the waterfront and hence downhill quite a drop. Going down is not a problem. You can take the road, or if you prefer, you can take the stairs from the Activity Pool, down to the lower building where you must take another set of stairs down before ending up at pool level. You can call a cart or just endure and view it as exercise LOL! There is no organized night-time stage entertainment. Viewed in a positive light, this means no rushing to finish dinner to scramble to get good seats for the show. You can linger and enjoy after dinner drinks too. Do I have complaints? Yes, the safe is way too high! I cannot reach it at all! My husband who is 5'10" even had trouble since he couldn't see what was in the safe. The second problem is that it seemed the walls and ceilings do not provide much sound barrier. We could hear a lot of noise from adjoining units. I could hear a woman walking in her heels, I could hear some talking (and it wasn't raised voices), I could hear their tv, and I could hear when furniture was being moved or the drapes opened or closed. For us, it wasn't that troublesome as we were lucky enough to have quiet neighbours. It would be a different story if we had the partying type next to us. Well that's my review.

When my five friends and I decided to go to Hacienda Encantada, I had a tough time finding out about the timesharing aspect of the resort. I hope this review will make it easier for those who have the same questions I had. The first thing was to find transportation from the airport and back at the end of the week. There were 5 of us arriving at the same time and 5 leaving at the end of the week. After checking around a lot, I found Cabo Shuttle Services. We arranged for a private shuttle. They were right on time picking us up and the total for all 5 of us was $75 USD. Because it was a round trip the return was only $65. One note about that. Hacienda Encantada will only make shuttle reservations on certain days. I strongly recommend you book your round-trip shuttle before arriving. One of our group had to scramble to get a ride back to the airport on Friday. Cabo Shuttle services toll free # is 877-985-0022 and the Los Cabos office number is (634) 120 1124. I highly recommend them! We were in one of the 2 bedroom Presidential units in Building 2. We had a lovely view of the ocean and overlooked "The Green" and El Eden, the tequila bar. On the one bedroom side, the bedroom had a king bed, a lounger and a full bath including a Jacuzzi tub. The living area had a full bathroom (sans Jacuzzi), 2 hall closets, and a full kitchen. The kitchen had 4 stove top burners, a microwave/convection oven and a full sized refrigerator. There was a dining room table with enough chairs for all of us and a fold out queen sofa-bed. The bedroom and living room shared a balcony and we were able to fit all six of us and the two tables into one area. The studio side was a lock-off with double doors, just like a hotel. It had a full bath also including a Jacuzzi. There were two queen beds, a partial kitchen with two burners, a microwave and a full sized refrigerator. It also had a table that would seat 4 for dining in. It had a private patio, separated from the other balcony. Neither unit had a garbage disposal or dishwasher. Housekeeping changed the sheets every day! They also did a pretty full cleaning, including doing the dishes if we left any in the sink. There was an $8 a day charge for housekeeping on the bill at the end of the week. The only thing we had a small problem with was predicting when they'd arrive to clean. With 6 of us in the room coming and going, I think it was hard for them to tell when it would be okay to clean. By the end of the week we'd figured out how to alert them when it was convenient to come into the rooms to clean. There were 8 places to eat on site plus 1 little market with a limited selection of food. If you were planning on eating out most of the time, the market was enough for snacks and such. They do offer all inclusive if you want it, but we were going to do most of our breakfasts and lunches in the condo and opted out of the all inclusive. Someone in our group ate at 6 of the 8. Barolo was the only one we were dissatisfied with. I'd heard very good things about them so maybe it was just an off night. We went to WalMart to shop for the week. It cost $20-25 each way for the taxi but it was well worth it. If you're not fluent in Spanish, you might want to bring a Spanish dictionary. There is also a Costco in the area but we didn't go there. We had to be a little creative with the stuff in the kitchens when we were cooking, but managed anyway. We let them sort out what needed to go back to the other kitchen after we left. There is a laundry room in building 2. It costs $4 per wash and $4 per dry. It only takes US quarters. They run a shuttle between Hacienda Encantada and their sister resort Marina Fiesta on the Marina in Cabo San Lucas. It leaves Hacienda Encantada every two hours starting at 8:00 am with the last run at 10:00 pm. It returns from Marina Fiesta on the half hour (8:30, 10:30, etc. with the last trip back at 10:30 pm). Marina Fiesta is close enough to downtown to easily walk there. Service through-out the resort was great. It's huge, but they have golf carts that take you from place to place if it's too far to walk. We simply called the front desk when we wanted one and it was usually downstairs within 5 minutes. If you have a large group like us, you might want to tell them how many need to be picked up. One of us rode on the luggage rack when all six of us called for a shuttle at the same time. One other caution, if you're going uphill and have anything on the luggage rack, be sure it's wedged in well. One bag fell off when heading back up to the lobby for the final flight. No harm done, just a note. We would definitely go back. If anyone has additional questions I can answer, just let me know.

Hacienda Encantada was absolutely fantastic, from our room to the food, ambiance and staff. I have nothing bad to say and can't wait to go back. So relaxing and beautiful. The pool wait staff was outstanding and friendly. The concierge and front desk were very helpful and answered all our questions. Transportation to surrounding area was available and affordable.

Amazing is all that should be said!!! The property is maintained meticulously nothing short of 5 star service. We are currently staying in phase 2 top floor. The view and our room is gorgeous. The adult only pool is seriously heaven on earth if you are traveling without children. The food is great and the portions are huge. Shout out to our favorite pool bartender Sebastian!!! Im not much of a drinker but these drinks are delicious. We don't ever wanna leave.
