About
Description
Hotel Esencia is a 50-acre private estate, with an awe-inspiring beachfront, two swimming pools, day spa, three restaurants, and an indulgent atmosphere fitting of royalty. In fact, the property and many of the ...More buildings once served as the exclusive beach-side retreat of an Italian duchess. Though friendly, warm and generous, the duchess demands the very best and Esencia still benefits from her superior taste, her impeccable style, and her zest for life. Less

We did not use the meal plan. We did drive around and ate at Tulum mostly, we loved to explore the region. The restaurants at the property are excellent but we thought they were a bit too expensive.
