We just returned from Esperanza, and had to evacuate a day early, because of Hurricane John.
Before I go into anything else, let me tell you, there are no bad views, from any room at Esperanza. All of the rooms are situated for the best views of the ocean. There are only 50 rooms, so this place is peaceful, quiet, and beautiful. Yes, you can see, when entering your room, from the non-ocean side, some places being built - FYI - we heard absolutely no construction noise, what so ever.
My husband and I have traveled a lot. We only stay at 5 star properties. Our room at Esperanza was impeccable. It is truely the cleanest room I've ever seen. No scuff marks on the walls, no dust balls under the bed - nothing. And the way they've thought it out - there was nothing more I desired, but a butler, a double hammock, extra shampoo and shower gel - this stuff is pretty good.
We did not have time to take advantage of the spa. We got a tour, and our friends, who were traveling with us, loved the treatments. The Yoga session was nice, There is a great area for internet connection.
Esperaza offers Chrysler Crossfire's for rent. I now want one as a second car. But don't waste your money renting here, unless you are really touring the area, and not just traveling to the town. The taxi is the better way.
The attention to detail was wonderful. They actually have a "Details Manager" at the property, who was great. If you have any special requests, just let them know, it's amazing how much they try to accomodate. The surprise amenities such as a bottle of wine, or a fresh made, in your room, margarita, was such a grand touch. Over the top. I want all properties to pick this up! They do such a great job, here!
We love Mexico and the resorts throughout the country. We love margaritas, and, although good here, they need work. We were not fond of the sugar water they add to the margaritas - too many calories!. Also, I would add a Mexican liquor, such as Citronage, to a margarita, instead of their imported triple sec. Keep it real.
The beach, be advised, is almost scary. I don't do waves and rock well, so we stayed out. I think we saw a total of 5 people, our 5 day stay, venture into the surf. But there are pretty little shells to collect for your memory.
One more thing. I was impressed at the younger, upscale crowd. The honeymooners staying there seemed to be well traveled, heeled, so anyone reading this, don't think because it is intimate, and a little quiet, you won't have fun. We met a lot a really great people.
Our Overall experience was a 4.7. Five being the highest for us. I would not call it Nirvana, but I would not complain about the views from the entry door.
I would go back in a minute!
