Overview

Peaceful alternative to raucous Cabo San Lucas, with spacious suites, infinity pools and sea views

The Look

On a craggy hilltop with views all the way to the famous Lands End of the Baja Peninsula, Hacienda Encantada is a 150-room resort designed with its seaside setting in mind. A series of infinity pools appear to tumble into the Pacific Ocean, the romantic Mexican restaurant, Las Marias, is positioned to take in the coastal scenery, and the many colonnaded terraces are furnished with lounge chairs for sunset viewing. The resort’s air of intimacy and exclusivity is made clear from the grand entrance (manned by a security team) to the regal lobby that’s decked out in locally made hardwood furniture, grand Spanish Colonial–style fountains and colorful tile murals.

Bed & Bath

Luxury and Family Suites are an enormous 800 and 1,600 square feet, respectively, with cool tile floors, four-poster beds in dark wood, old-fashioned chandeliers and balconies overlooking the landscaped grounds and the Sea of Cortez beyond. But modern comforts are present too, including fully equipped kitchens (with fridges, microwaves and ovens), free WiFi and Jacuzzi tubs flanked by bright wooden shutters in the bathrooms.

Beyond

From the guestrooms it’s a short walk downhill to the stunning series of infinity pools. Recline on one of the half-submerged loungers, take a seat at the swim-up bar, or just bob by the edge overlooking the coastline and surf below. This is a resort that does relaxation well; the on-site spa offers more than 20 types of treatment, including Mexican body wraps using agave nectar, plus an authentic temazcal. Hacienda Encantada is not a late night party spot (head into Cabo San Lucas for that), but there’s tequila-infused entertainment during the daily happy hour at the alfresco bar, El Patio, and a mix of Mexican and international fare at the three excellent restaurants. La Pergola is the low-key poolside option, with a menu of simple grilled dishes, while the cliffside Las Marias is better for couples, known for its rich regional fare and that ubiquitous Sea of Cortez backdrop.

In the Area

Cabo plays host to some magnificent whale migrations; the concierge can organize sailing trips with local operator Pez Gato to see humpbacks and gray whales up close. The region’s also a hot spot for big-game fishing, so channel you inner angler and book a trip with Reel Baja, or take a quieter boat ride out to Cabo’s iconic Arch rock formation. Want to keep things moving? Hacienda Encantada’s international night features music, dancing and food, with a different focus every evening. Or take a break from the crowded Playa el Médano, just off the marina in Cabo San Lucas, and head to one of the uncluttered beaches.

This resort is absolutely beautiful! The staff was great and always super helpful. Roger, bell boy, made our stay easy. He was always there for whatever we needed. It was extremely relaxing & wonderful for any couple. The food is alright, breakfast was great when you get it freshly made by cook, Carmen. She was excellent !! All inclusive was extremely worth it !

Muchas Gracias to Carlos, Carmen, Jesus, Andrea, Ana, Edgar, Marcos, Eli, Daniela, Ceasar, Aldaberto, Salvador, Felix, Antonio, Patrick, and the rest of the staff at Hacienda Encantada for making my first visit to Cabo one to be remembered forever!

Exceptional service, beautiful restaurants, infinity pools,
Close to downtown 6 miles away with a 5.00 shuttle each way usd from 8:00 to 10:30 pm but why would you want to do that when you have everything you need at this gorgeous resort plus the love and feeling of family. This place is a must stay when visiting Cabo San Lucas. Gracias Hacienda Encantada.

Visited as a guest last June and was incentivized to view a sales presentation because of the free stuff promised. Sales guy was very nice and along with the sales manager presented a deal that made good business sense. The deal was essentially that they would pay me $10,000 a week for my three weeks for a period of 5 years. Over that period of time I would own the three weeks free and clear. Wrote all details out on paper and even gave me documentation of what I would expect to receive. Went home and started paying my monthly payments and called them to see when I could expect my three payments of 10k. They completely backed out of all promises and said I could probably only expect to be paid 5k a week or half of what was promised. Also said that the 10 free golf rounds per year and fishing excursions were also not going to be honored! I WAS AND AM LIVID! In the fine print of the contract it states that they will not honor any documentation that is not on company letterhead. The paperwork the sales manager used was not valid or in other words they could let their sales people tell you whatever they wanted to get the sale and not be held accountable for any of it!!! Complete Misrepresentation and FRAUD in my book. Also, they don't share with you that you will pay 100's of thousands of dollars but will also pay a couple thousand every time you come and use the property that you are, in their words, buying!!! Save your money and don't buy or you will be in the same situation I'm in, OUT OF LUCK!!! YOU WILL BE SORRY YOU DID!!!! I am filling a report with Porfeco to get my money back as they REFUSE TO MAKE THIS RIGHT BY JUST RETURNING MY MONEY.
