My family and I stayed at Hotel Esencia in July and our stay was just FANTASTIC.
The staff was excellent, discret but yet present and helpful. They gave us great recommendations for our stay.

After researching destinations all over the world for our honeymoon, my wife and I came across Hotel Esencia and immediately fell in love with it. We wanted a place that was private, on the beach, had great food, made delicious drinks and a had fun/relaxing...More
I rarely write reviews, but my experience at Esencia has inspired me to write my first trip advisor review... it was just that great. I hope I'm not letting the secret out! I'm not typically a "resort" person but Esencia feels like an oasis, not...More
We spent four wonderful nights at this beautiful hotel. I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to find this place, and now that we’ve been I know we will return time and again. The hotel itself is so special and miles from the giant,...More
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 ...Morebuildings 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

I don’t know about fly fishing. The day we arrived the seaweed smell was pretty bad (of course they clean off the seaweed itself so the beach is immaculate) but the rest of the four days it was beautiful— no smell at all. As the other responder said, it depends on the tides.

There is in Akumal but the best is in Punta Allen. Contact Greg Rahe In Punta. I can't remember his company and Trip Advisor won't let me give you his email. Just Google his name.They can send a boat to pick you up at certain docks south of Tulum. Or they might pick you up from Escenia. But that would be a long boat ride. If you have a car it's a piece of cake. I rent a car all the time and drive to certain parts of the biosphere to fish in the bays. Caught small permit. But Greg is the way to do it. His guides are great and know where the fish are. Have been fishing with his guides twice and each time it's been epic. Bones Jacks, Tarpon and Snook. All on a fly. Have fun and enjoy Escencia. It's fabulous.
