Overview

An abundance of dining options
No direct beach access is offered on-site

Overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the Hacienda Encantada Resort & Residences impresses guests with its authentic Spanish colonial architecture and attentive service. Recent visitors can't stop raving about the resort's home-away-from-home feel that's created with personal touches, like resort staff remembering guests' names. The warm, inviting atmosphere extends to the accommodations, which are adorned with bright colors, local artwork, handcrafted wood furnishings and private balconies. During the day, sun-worshippers can stretch out along the sand or lounge by one of several swimming pools before escaping to the Hacienda Encantada Spa or the Temazcal (a heated room similar to a sauna). Meanwhile, adventure seekers can sign up for a zip line tour or spend the day parasailing or diving. And with five restaurants and two swim-up pool bars – not to mention the eclectic array of bars and restaurants situated around the nearby Cabo San Lucas marina in the Golden Zone – there are plenty of culinary options to choose from.

Thoughtful traditional Mexican decor (through use of heavy wood and iron items) makes the Hacienda Encantada an impressive property. Rooms are large, clean, and well-decorated with comfortable carved-wood beds and stocked kitchenettes.
