  • Beautiful and Relaxing

    "We stayed here from 12/26-1/3/2017. This may have been one of the busiest weeks/weekends of the season but we still had a great time. I'll break this review down by the actual rental and by the resort. The rental was as advertised but we were not sure what to expect when we reserved the 2 - bedroom option. These are 2 completely separate units. To pass between the two you either have to leave yours and use a key to get into the other or you can go out on the shared patio through the sliding glass doors (the patio is huge and even has a fridge and sink out there waiting for you). This layout was not a deal breaker in any way. Something to keep in mind is the balcony can not be closed off between the 2 units so if you don't rent both sides you might meet your neighbors out there. The main unit had an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, dining and living area. There is a door to the bedroom that separates the two areas. The 2nd unit is laid out more like a hotel room equipped with 2 beds, full bath with tub, microwave and mini-fridge. There is a great view of the pool and ocean from the balcony. The units are on the 3rd floor and there are multiple elevators. Both sides were clean and had everything we needed. The resort was equally beautiful. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Deno (the owner) made arrangements for us to be picked up at the airport (about 30-45 mins away) which we greatly appreciated. Since the rental is part of the resort, we were able to charge this to our room ahead of time. Taxi's are plentiful at the airport but expect to be swarmed by timeshare people. The resort is actually two resorts. Be sure to check both out. Our side was a little more laid back and quiet while the other side had your daily activities like beach volleyball and Zumba. There are 5 restaurants and you can charge all your meals to the room at both resorts. The prices were at or below what we expected which was also nice. Just like all resorts...get up early to get the best beach/pool side chair. Half the beach sitting area is reserved for "owners" - so chairs on the beach are in demand. We preferred to sit by the hot tubs. Still close to the pool/beach, and you still get the ocean view but without the beach vendors constantly trying to sell you "whatever you need". Taxis are very cheap so be sure to go exploring. No rental car needed."

  • Great vacation!!

    "Everything about El Encanto 101 was awesome. Giovanni set up the crib and highchair and the car service was on time and comfortable! Our three year old loved the pool! The golf cart was so convenient to go into town for dinner. We are already planning on coming back next year and for a longer stay!!"

  • Wow....what a place! The best ever......

    "My husband and I are from Minnesota, retired and eager to escape the harsh winters. We have visited this unit for several years during January and February. We are experienced VRBO users, who have stayed in a umber of lovely places. This unit is the best we have ever experienced. Right on the most beautiful and safe beach on earth, we continue to come as often as we can. Our landlords are the best we have ever worked with. The unit is impeccable, well-supplied and beautifully furnished. The views, nearly 360 degrees, are spectacular and the access to the beach is the closest one could ever have The Playa Royale development is well-maintained with very professional staff who are fluent in Spanish and English. We can't wait to come again. We give this unit and the owners the highest possible rating!"

  • Beautiful, convenient, next to surf rental and beach!

    "This place looks just like the pictures and is across the road from the beach and some kick-back longboard waves. It's also a short walk to multiple tasty restaurants along the beach. Neighborhood dogs bark at night and roosters crow in the morning, so you may want earplugs if you're a light sleeper. La Mision de Mita is quite secure with locked gates, as is the comfy hotel next door where my mom stayed. The pool was a little cold (winter), the hot tub wonderful most of the time. There is a water treatment system on site. The concierge was attentive, knowledgeable and available. She provided shuttle service for a good fee, helped right away with a hot water problem. We really liked the owner's focus on natural products; bath, laundry, even mosquito repellent!"
