    • Best Holiday in Years

      Reviewed 24 September 2019

      If you like blue water, white sand, privacy, luxury, great service --- this is the spot. Hotel Esencia takes service seriously. This is not an inexpensive resort...and the staff/management makes sure that your every desire is taken care of. The rooms are extremely clean and very chic. We had a room with the waves and the beach right outside our door. There are water sports, a gym, a spa ....and of course tequila! We met really interesting people at Esencia, some of which are usually followed by the paparazzi but not at Esencia. I guess that's why celebrities stay here. It's beautiful and private.

    • The Best Hotel In The World!

      Dearest Hotel Esencia, We have to congratulate you on creating the perfect hotel, we travel a lot for work and stay in many hotels throughout the world but we have never stayed in a hotel that has got everything right, until now... There is not a weak link in the whole operation! The design, location, food and atmosphere make you feel like royalty, but its the staff that take it to another level! The team you have here are the absolute A team, so genuinely attentive kind and really happy! : ) I am staying with my girlfriend and we both agreed that we just had to tell you thank you so much! In a world where everything seems to be about cutting corners its a true pleasure to stay somewhere... Where it is obvious that everything has been created with such passion and style! My only complaint is now everywhere else I stay is going to seem like a poor cousin by comparison! ; ) All the very very best, Garfield and Sasha

      As soon as I arrived, I was convinced that I was in paradise. Every single part of Hotel Esencia exceeded expectations. From the outstanding rooms to the caring, genuine and compassionate staff. Ever single entre made our mouths water from just the sight of the dish. The white sandy beach along with the light turquoise water topped off the whole experiences. Throughout my stay I was at peace, without a care in the world except to try and take in this magnificent oasis. Reflecting back on this trip of a lifetime, there is no other way to describe it then absolutely marvelous. Speechless.

    • 2nd trip to Hotel Esencia

      Reviewed 02 September 2019

      September is not usually a month that we would head to the tropics, but its really such a special time to visit. The beach in this area is clear of seaweed, the tourism is chill and of course, Hotel Esencia is one of the best beach hotels in the world. Exclusive, chic, and tailored to each guest. The staff is there to please. Usually, the owner is hovering around, unusual at a high end resort, and he really cares about you having the best possible experience. This is our second trip. The first being a magnificent wedding....what a perfect spot for a destination event! And this time we came back just as a couple to enjoy the resort. Theres plenty to do in the area but we prefer to stay at the hotel and enjoy all of their amenities, spa, water toys, pools, and tequila!

      Cannot possibly imagine a better place. My wife and I had tons of plans to do some tourism before arriving but ended up never leaving. From the moment you wake up in the morning, its paradise. Fresh Mexican drip coffee or tea waiting for you on a personal outside terrace (delivered at the time you specify upon arrival), with pastries, a serene beach paradise awaits you just steps from the incredible rooms. All these things may be repeatable at another hotel, but what is not is the incredible staff. Not only was Marcos, a waiter at the pool and Cafe Escencia, a great waiter, but he took time out of his day to catch one of the grillos, or giant grasshoppers that patrol the areas to teach us about it (after it had just flown by and proceeded to scare the crap out of us). Theres nothing in the employee handbook that requires that. Then there was Ricardo. We may come back just for him. His passion for tequila and mescal was contagious and he was endlessly generous with his wealth of knowledge. He made us excited to share these things with our friends and family and he continually went way out of his way to create tasting experiences for us that we will never forget. If you came to Escencia just for him, you wouldnt regret it. All that and I havent even talked about the food. The octopus on the Lunch menu is cooked better than any Ive ever had, and I order it everywhere I go. The short rib tacos were also as unique as Im sure they are ubiquitously enjoyed. I could keep going but Im still on vacation. Just wanted to make sure this experience was shared as the staff at Escencia deserves as much adoration as possible. Worth every penny.
