Hotel Esencia offers 10 marvellous, independent and private villas plus 8 very comfortable pool view rooms. The architecture of the units contains elements of Mediterranean style, with lots of lights, spaciousness and comfort. They differentiate through theme colours, handcrafted aromatic candles, incense and essences, stimulating the senses.
Other exquisite elements are the teak chairs; the furniture and the deck of all units are made out of precious woods. The hotel includes a beautiful irregular shaped pool, out of blue ceramic tiles. Lush trees and perfect terrace for sunbathing surround it. In a picturesque thatched roof gazebo you can have a relaxing massage and other esthetic treatments are offered. Close by there is an abundance of attractive bars and multicultural restaurants. Artistic tropical gardens surround Esencia Hotel with flowering plants and low indirect lighting, creating a special and unique atmosphere.

Prepaid for two 1 bedroom/1 bath units. Upon arrival, we were told that air conditioner problems forced us all to move into a 2 bedroom/1 bath unit. No price adjustment was offered, but that seemed ok initially. The staff was more interested in
getting a charge hold for any extras than anything else. It turned out the the 2 BR unit also had air conditioner problems and one sleeping room was marginally cooled making sleeping difficult. Live and learn.
