Overview

Architectural masterpiece with box-like modernist rooms, a fusion restaurant and Pacific Ocean views

The Lowdown

At the highest point of Brisas Marques overlooking all of Acapulco and the Pacific Ocean, Encanto Acapulco is an avant-garde marvel conceived by architect Miguel Angel Aragones. Like a modernist pueblo atop a hill, the gallery-like public spaces and boxy accommodations standout in brilliant white against green landscape and blue sea. Guestrooms are designed to draw the eye outside to the furnished private balconies and Acapulco vistas beyond, so interiors are simply dressed in toffee creams and whites, from the marble floors, bed frames and desks, to the crisp white linens and curtains. After dark, interiors show off a more playful side with funky neon lighting schemes in bright blues and purples. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, free WiFi and modern bathrooms with dual vanities and L’Occitane amenities, and many have private swimming pools. Terraza restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch while Origen restaurant is open for dinner, serving an eclectic mix of fusion dishes and fresh international favorites. There’s also a full-service pampering spa, state-of-the-art gym and exceptional hilltop swimming pool with huge daybeds for daytime lounging in the sunshine.

In the Area

Acapulco was once the playground of Hollywood stars and moguls, and although those golden days are long gone, there’s a certain renaissance under way in this rakish resort town. Get into the retro spirit with a water skiing session courtesy of Gordon Rathbun at Ski Paradise, then visit the legendary Hotel Los Flamingos, a 1930s-era hotspot that has hosted celebrities like John Wayne and Cary Grant, before heading to see the famous cliff divers at La Quebrada.

This resort is incredible in every way. From the spectacular views, the architecture design flowed throughout the entire space. Our room had a private pool with floor to ceiling glass which allowed us to take it the breath taking views. Cannot rate all the food and drinks high enough. Likewise the service very high level consistently. The pool is gorgeous and it’s hard to leave to go out and explore. Do not hesitate in booking this resort as it will leave you with an unforgettable experience.

Some family members and I stayed at El Encanto to attend a family event .El Encanto was the perfect choice. Nobody had a need or desire to leave the hotel for the length of our stay. From the understated modern and well appointed rooms with awe inspiring views with private terraces, to the beautiful pool area and the setting surrounded by nature and beauty and the gourmet restaurant with delicious food and impecable and friendly service, our stay was a perfect 10. Some rooms had even private pools .
Our thanks to the amazing staff that made us feel pampered, nurtured and recharged. And thank you to the architect Miguel Ángel Aragones for creating such a sanctuary where everything was perfectly and harmoniously conceived. We will make all efforts to be back. This is by far our very favourite hotel.

Encanto is a great boutique hotel that combines beautiful location and warm service. For this who love Venezuelan cuisine, they will find delicious plates such as Asado Negro, Arepas and even Golfeados 😋 as well as Peruvian recipes with the Mexican touch...

I recommend the Pool Villa room for thise who enjoy privacy and a lovely beach landscape.
