Set in lush gardens, there is an abundance of natural wildlife all around, and the beach is great for swimming and snorkelling. Esencia welcomes families and is therefore a real draw for people who are attracted by the intimacy and relaxation that a small chic hotel offers yet embraces the lively nature of family life.
The main house has two split level suites, both of which overlook the Caribbean with private terraces. The villa, with two bedrooms, is ideal for families. The majority of the rooms are garden suites. All rooms have their own private plunge pool, iPod docking station and widescreen TV.
There is a beautiful organic spa, its treatment philosophy based on traditional local Mayan ways. And there is even a special spa menu for children! The steam rooms and Jacuzzi’s are open for all guests to use.
Two restaurants set close to the pool provide a choice of local and international cuisine.
