A Place Where Time Stops
A Place Where Time Stops
We have never been in Puerto Penasco, so it was our first encounter with the Sea of Cortez. And it was great!!! This place was exactly what we wanted! First of all it wasn't crowded at all during our staying there. It was quiet and peaceful. In early mornings and nights and sometimes in the afternoon we were by ourselves on the beach. The sea and the beach were wonderful! Especially we were impressed to observe the high and low tides during the day. Maybe we were lucky but the weather during our days and nights was perfect. It was much cooler than Phoenix, and the water in the sea was just right to enjoy long swims. We were able to watch wildlife such pelicans and seagulls fly over as they searched for fish in the sea, observe tiny fish hiding under seaweed and crabs crawling in the shallow waters. We enjoyed watching the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, collecting unique colorful shells, walking on the beach during a day and in the moon light, swimming in the sea at night. All this created a feeling of being a part of nature. When the waves were a little bit rough (sometimes at high tide) we would go swimming in the Encanto pool. It's big and open with a very nice view of the sea. To enrich our experience in Mexico, one day we went to town and bought 4 pounds of fresh shrimp from a local fisherman. We were lucky also to find a local grocery store "Santa Fe" where we bought a few food items. We planned to go to a local restaurant one day but eventually had a nice dinner in the Mayan Palace (5 minutes driving from Encanto). It was a high quality buffet style restaurant with authentic Mexican cuisine. There were some fun activities for residents of the Palace on the beach, so we spent some time there in a crowd. After that we were happy to go back to our quiet Encanto. In addition we were very pleased with the condo. It's really beautiful, cozy, comfortable, clean, and efficient. We felt we were long-awaited guests there. The view from the condo was fantastic. When we were not on the beach we still kept our connection with the sea by looking at it while eating inside or outside on the balcony. The balcony is huge, and the patio furniture is nice and comfy. The owner of the condo was very friendly and helpful in providing us the necessary information and giving advice. She was like an old friend. Our vacation felt longer then 5 days because time literally stopped for us there. Thank you for this relaxing, enjoyable, connecting-with-nature vacation!!!

very tranquil property wonderful owner
I stayed with my two daughters in July. Denise is amazingly wonderful woman to deal with. The condo was quite comfortable open airy, the views wonderful. Security guards were so nice and helpful, everyone was kind. Very safe secluded area, family oriented. Mayan palace just down the road if you want to spend money, or take advantage of their spa. This condo was worlds better than any resort i felt at home. I brought food and my family and I cooked which was better than going out. the beach was clean and there are no solicitation or merchants. if you like to buy stuff just head back to town its about 20 min away. We had a great time an this was the true meaning of vacation rest and relaxation. ocean was calm clean as was the ginormous pool that had fewer than 8 people at a time and could fit 200, i look forward to staying there over and over again. Thanks for having us!...Medina family

WHAT A DREAM
WHAT A DREAM
My wife and I have stayed at this condo twice now, yes it is nice enough to keep coming back to. we recently (April 2012) spent 10 nights here. As you can see from the pictures, the condo is beautiful and the views are spectacular. Both times we have stayed at Encanta, there have been very few other guest at the resort. If you like peace and quiet, this is the place you want to go. The entire property is kept clean and very well maintained. The employees there are very polite and always helpful. The pools are beautiful and always clean, we cooked out on the large grills next to the pool many times. Once finished, they scrub them as if they were never used. If you are a shell collector, this beach is where you want to be, every type,big or small, its beautiful. Miles of beautiful beach to take those morning or evening walks on. We went to town a few times for shopping, about 15 miles one way, doesn't take long at all. There is a new grocery store in town (a Mexican Walmart) and a Sams Club being built next to it, very clean and lots of product. We felt safe the entire time we were there, never once did we witness or feel any violence. Encanta has security 24 hours a day also, no worries. we also golfed at the beautiful Myan Golf Course which is about one mile from the condo. Very nice course and inexpensive. We are looking forward to when we can take another vacation and go back to this beautiful condo. We are from New Mexico and about a ten hour drive away from this paradise, trust our word, you will not regret staying at this condo.

First off, I’d recommend Ecanto condos to anyone who wants a relaxing, family friendly and not crowded vacation spot. This was my first trip to Puerto Penasco and after staying at Encanto, I can’t wait to go back. My family of four (me, wife, 3 yr old daughter, 7 mnth old daughter) enjoyed 3 days and 3 nights in paradise over the 4th of July weekend. My oldest daughter loved swimming all day at the pool and collecting seashells at the beach. The pool is 100% kid friendly because there are plenty of shallow areas for wading and sitting. There are also jets that decorate the pool and a horizon style waterfall that looks over the ocean to add to the beauty. As far as collecting sea shells goes, I recommend being at the beach in the morning (easy to do if you’ve got little ones) to see the tide pools that collect hermit crabs, little fish and tons of shells. These tide pools are at the rocky reef about 75 yrds from the property that is completely exposed at low tide every morning! The beach is tranquil. During our three day stay, we were only approached by 1 vendor selling jewelry on the beach. A simple “no gracias estamos bien” and the vendor was on his way to solicit his next tourist target. The water at the beach was clear and calm and the sand, with the exception of shells in some areas, was soft and fun to dig in. As far as the room goes, every room at Encanto has an awesome view of the pool and the Sea of Cortez. You can wake up every morning and the Sea is the first thing you see. It’s very relaxing. Our room was clean, cool and comfortable. I felt like a distinguished guest at Denise’s house! The room is equipped with washer, dryer, stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, a/c, dish network and every amenity you’re used to having at home. My only advice is that you bring lots of food. Use the kitchen for preparing your meals and remember to take plenty of botanas (snacks) to munch on while your relaxing by the pool. Please remember, take everything you need so there’s no need to go to town. The drive is about 25 minutes which makes it a little inconvenient if you forget something or would like to experience local flair like shopping and restaurants. The good thing about being so far out is the evening sky. I was amazed to see the stars almost touch the horizon when we arrived late Friday night. I bet the resorts on Sandy Beach don’t get this view because of light pollution. Overall, our trip was awesome. I highly recommend Encanto condos!

This is it !!!!

This is the place to be if you want to get away from it all. You won't even miss the activity in Puerto Penasco. We went to town one day for shopping and lunch and couldn't wait to get "home" We found plenty to do, long walks on the beach, hunting for seashells, enjoying the huge jacuzzi, lounging on the outdoor beds by the pool. drinking coffee on our private balcony with amazing views. We took our inflatable kayak and it was great having a place to store it behind secured walls...we were actually able to use one of the locked garages. There's steam and exercise rooms for those who are so inclined. The condo itself is lovely with everything you might need.The decor is upscale and tasteful. It was great having a full kitchen ...you won't mind cooking with the views you get from the kitchen. We had a couple of very minor issues and the owner responded and took care of them immediately We will return and I can't imagine staying anywhere else in the Puerto Penasco area
