Overview

Outstanding service, according to past guests
Lacks some amenities and services of larger resorts

Situated only 17 miles south of Playa del Carmen, the 50-acre Hotel Esencia lures those seeking utter seclusion. The guest rooms and cottages feature minimalistic decor, with white stucco walls, built-in shelves and brightly colored pillows and throws  all of which add to their spacious allure, according to past visitors. Each accommodation also comes with high-tech amenities, including a large flat-screen TV and an iPod docking station along with one king or two queen beds (some of the two-bedroom suites also feature private pools and terraces). In terms of dining, you can enjoy inventive Mexican cuisine at the resort's three eateries. Recent guests cite the hotel food as flavorful and the service as immaculate. Guests also compliment Hotel Esencia's well-manicured grounds and the on-site spa, which offers unique services such as the "Ritual del Sol," a body treatment that incorporates lavender, chamolile and a Mayan mud wrap to soothe sun-burned skin, and an "Ritualito Tropical," a replenishing vanilla and stawberry body wrap.
