Review Summary


Pros

  • More secluded and serene than nearby Playa Medona
  • More updated than many properties in the area
  • Infinity pool with excellent views
  • Cocktails and cooking classes
  • Large patios and balconies in rooms
  • Free Wi-Fi in rooms (albeit slow)
  • All-inclusive packages available
  • Cozy communal fire pit

Cons

  • Beach is rocky and unsuitable for swimming
  • Steep hills around the resort
  • Some complaints of pool noise in Phase 2 rooms
  • Pushy timeshare salespeople

Bottom Line

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. However, the property is large, with steep hills, and those not fond of walking may be forced to ride golf carts to access pools, rooms, restaurants, or the lobby. As always, non-timeshare owners may find the aggressive sales pitches by staff irksome.

Location

Located on the northern lip of Bahia San Lucas (or San Lucas Bay), a cab ride away from Playa Medona

Map of Hacienda Encantada Resort & Spa

While its relative isolation may be a draw for some, Hacienda Encantada is located far from downtown Cabo San Lucas' shopping, restaurants, and bars. Beach access is limited with rocky shorelines that are less than ideal for swimmers. Those looking for sand and waves need to take a cab to Playa Medona nearby.

At the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas -- a beach town on the stretch of coastline collectively known as Los Cabos (The Capes) -- has long been a popular vacation spot for sun-worshipping party seekers. (Hence, the nickname Cabo San Loco.) However, Hacienda Encantada is located on cliffs north of the bustling beachfront in what could be called a more "serene" setting.

  • 35-minute drive to Los Cabos International Airport
  • 8-minute cab to the beach (Playa Medona)
  • 10-minute drive to Boulevard Marina for shopping
  • 12-minute drive to downtown Cabo's party spots
  • 12-minute drive to the Marina
  • 13-minute drive to great views of Land's End, a picturesque rock formation on the coast
