Where to Stay in Los Cabos: Hacienda Encantada Resort & Residences.
Checked in into Mexico’s city and wondering where to stay for a night or two? Or are you contemplating spending your vacation in Mexico but don’t have a clue of the best places to stay as you enjoy your vacation? Hacienda Encantada Resort and Residences in Los Cabos is the place to be.
Whether you’re looking for beautiful scenic views or top-notch services in the city, Hacienda Encantada in Los Cabos is one of the high-end resorts in Mexico you absolutely must stay at. Located along the Medano Beach, Hacienda Encantada redefines the experience of being in a five-star beach resort and was easily one of the highlights of my travels this past year. With the postcard-perfect views, mouth-watering seafood, access to the beach, infinity pool and several social amenities, Hacienda Encantada is pretty much what you’d imagine as the set of Bachelor in Paradise minus all the drama and couple-swapping.
Here’s why you should stay at Hacienda Encantada Resort and Residences in Las Cabos:
Amazing Customer Service.
The customer service was beyond amazing at Hacienda Encantada. I may not have travelled the whole world but from my experiences this past year, there’s really no place with great customer care like Hacienda Encantada. As soon as you arrive in this amazing resort, you’re welcomed by the ever-smiling staff and an ice-cold glass of fresh juice (definitely a must considering the temperature change from a New York winter to Mexico’s sun). The staff guide you through the hotel from the reception to rooms (in a golf cart no-less) and make your entire stay feel like you’re home. They have a great sense of hospitality and respond to all your inquiries almost immediately. Guests from across the globe have vouched for them and true to their words, this resort has one-of-a-kind customer service.
Stunning Environment with Panoramic Views.
I’ve scoured Pinterest for beautiful, picturesque landscapes way more times than I’d like to admit, and was shocked when this hotel was actually more beautiful than all of the photos. Let’s be real, most of the time Instagram vs Reality doesn’t exactly match up. This is one of the rare cases where it totally does. Located along the hillside overlooking the pacific sea, Hacienda Encantada has more scenic views than the wallpaper that automatically pops up on your computer when you first buy it. Think of mountains and cliffs surrounding the resort as you swim in the expansive infinity pool and look out at the beautiful coastline.
Did I mention watching the sunset? Yaaaas, girl. On my first night at the hotel, I dined at Los Riscos and enjoyed fresh grilled fish, seafood and a delicious jalapeno margarita while watching the sun set to the west. As the glowing sun dips in the horizon, the fleeting colors of the day fade away and the burning red skies bathe the ocean with a wash of color. On a lucky day, you can even catch a glimpse of whales migrating along the coastlines or stingrays jumping out of the water.
Great Social Amenities.
Hacienda Encantada has several amazing amenities including infinity pools for adults only, a pool for kids, tennis court, fitness center, free Wi-Fi, outdoor Jacuzzis, fine dining, a holistic spa, and events facilities just to mention but a few. There was even a wedding taking place while we were there! The adult’s infinity pool definitely took my breath away and was my go-to spot throughout my trip.
Did you travel with your kids? Don’t worry. They’re covered too. The resort has amazing kid’s facilities that will make their vacation moments unforgettable. The kid’s zone within the resort offers different entertainment for kids where they can enjoy water jets, play chess, swim, play football or make paintings of their preference. There is also a ping-pong table and several swaying hammocks that can keep them busy throughout the day.
Amazing Culinary Experiences.
This is one of the most amazing characteristics of Mexico that has revolutionized the blending of international flavors. Visiting Hacienda Encantada will give you the most versatile culinary experience because there are a wide range of cuisines ranging from the tastiest cuts of meat to the best tequila in Los Cabos. Their menu ranges from sea food to grilled steaks accompanied with vibrant salads and Mexican hot chocolate. While I wasn’t in love with the room service (to be fair, I never am no matter where I go), I was absolutely obsessed with the restaurants. From late-night pepperoni pizza in the jacuzzi to fresh sushi at the infinity pool, the food was one of the highlights of my experience at the resort.
Inside this resort are amazing accommodation rooms that are tastefully designed to meet the Mexican heritage. The rooms were huge with beautiful statement furniture and unmatched amenities. The interiors are well decorated in warm and earthy tones, vibrant paintings, marble floors and beautiful hand-crafted textiles. The private residential areas have fully-equipped kitchens and come with a private terrace to access a shared garden. The bedrooms also have a balcony and a separate sitting areas while the living area has a guest laundry and bathroom.
