We loved the casual, romantic atmosphere, the colorful decor, the two garden patios, the friendly exceedingly-helpful staff and the scrumptious breakfasts. We asked for an extra blanket and got three, including a gigantic quilt. During our stay we checked out 3-4 other hotels our guidebook recommended, and were glad we had picked Casa Encantada. The others were more austere and...

I am entirely grateful that Casa Encantada was recommended to me by a friend, as in " you have to stay here, it's incredible!" While staying there for 5 days during Semana Santa, I learned that there is already a large fan club who return to this beautiful hotel over and over again. Victoria Ryan, the owner for many years,...

It has almost come down to... if we can't stay at Casa Encantada, we don't visit Patzcuaro. We have been to this incredible town numerous times over the years and have stayed at some very nice hotels. But we are spoiled now by this hotel and their entire staff. We are sometimes torn whether go to Patzcuaro to attend the...

First Class all the way. Staff, room, food, service. Couldn't be better. So pleased and can't wait to return for a longer stay. Right near the plaza, very safe and secure. Parking right in front too! Beautifully restored building with all the comforts you could hope for in a 5 star resort.

I couldn't feel more at home in a place. The staff has been unbelievably accommodating, helpful and efficient in everything from booking the room to doing our laundry. It's a special little compound with 2 lovely courtyards and an inviting garden with plenty of inviting chairs and tables that afford opportunities to sit in either the sun or the shade....

This is a beautifully decorated hotel just a block off the plaza and next to the Casa de Once Patios, a great place to shop. We stayed in the Arbolla room that had 2 large king sized beds and a semi-private patio. It also had a refrigerator and microwave in the common area outside the room which was handy for...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. Also thank you for the suggestion about the internet. The Treeouse is in a difficult location for the ideal reception, you are right about choosing a different room if the internet is critical. It is helpful when people tell us during the reservation process us they are needing...

We booked here for 2 nights based on a friends recommendation and only then found out it was ranked #1 in Patzcuaro. Well...it's ranked #1 for good reason. Location, décor, amenities, service, comfort, privacy, value for money...the list is long. Stop searching and book here. You will LOVE IT.

I loved staying at Casa Encantada. It has a comfortable, casual atmosphere. All the staff are so friendly and accommodating. The beds are wonderful.

Gail, Thanks for taking the time to give Hotel Casa Encantada such a great review! I am glad you like El Nido... such a cozy intimate room,, with plenty of storage!

Everything you read about this place turned out to be true. It was charming, lovely and quiet. There were people with dogs but they were all calm, friendly and happy.

My husband Ernesto and I decided to get away for several days from life in San Miguel de Allende and choose Patzcuaro as our ideal holiday.
