Our 5th visit and as wonderful as always
This was our 5th visit to Esencia. We got married here 4 years ago and keep coming back. It is the perfect balance of understated beauty with warm, impeccable service (and the MOST delicious food). The new owner is really taking care to maintain the uniqueness of the property, while also making improvements. New furniture, new bath products, updated menus are just a few. The changes are lovely. We cannot say enough how special Esencia is. We recommend it to everyone we know.

Luxury boutique bliss
Hotel Esencia is a serene boutique hotel nesseled in the middle of the forrest. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The beach had a ton of seaweed but you feel like you are the only one on the beach as the hotel is not flanked by big hotels which made it so enjoyable. The food is truly amazing. Not a detail was missed by the staff. Hotel Escenia is a gem and a first class experience!

A piece of heaven!
I absolutely loved my stay at Esencia. The staff were so kind and knowledgable and really made you feel at home. Esencia is tucked away from the larger cities and on a peaceful and lovely beach with what feels like a jungle surrounding the garden rooms. I saw geckos, iguanas, many kinds of birds and even a crab in a great shell while walking the grounds. The concierge staff are incredibly helpful and booked taxis to Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba--although I also spent a day on the beach just reading which was quite lovely. It was my birthday and they surprised me with a delicious piece of tres leches & flan cake. The restaurants are incredible and there is no need to find other dining options. I look forward to returning!

Honeymoon Heaven
I am not sure if there is any other place like this on the Mayan Rivera. It is like staying at an estate. The service is fantastic, the rooms are well appointed. They stock your fridge with complimentary drinks and breakfast is included. The staff treated you like you are a king. The ambiance and food was fantastic.

Absolutely perfect!
My husband and I stayed at Esencia for 7 nights in November as part of our honeymoon, and WOW. This place is incredible. Everything is 10/10. The thought that has gone into every single detail makes a stay here so amazing. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The beach is peaceful, with the whitest sand and bluest water. We will definitely be returning!
