Great hotel - excellent staffPosted Mar 4, 2018
Great stay, very close to the beach. Nice pool & staff were very accommodating. Only issue was payment needs to be in cash & without transport it is a 30 minute walk each way in the heat to get to a cash machine. Thankfully I paid for the room beforehand but for spa treatments offered, minibar, breakfast etc everything is cash. Overall a great stay though!

Good location, walking distance to beachPosted Feb 4, 2018
Location: Eat at Prontos italian restaurant for lunch, Ginger cafe in the mornings, pizza slices at Pizza Tomate and groceries at Ronnie's
It was just ok all in all. Steep hill to pool and upper rooms. Few insects in room.

Wonderful, family friendly hotel near the beachPosted Jan 18, 2018
We are a family of 3, and stayed 5 nights. We found the staff were great - very helpful and hard working. They stayed out of your way, and did not try to sell you things. We did book a number of items through them (tours, transport, ATV)... and they were on the ball. We had to cancel one of our tours mid-way because my little one got sick, and they reimbursed me - which was unexpected. We loved the pool, the close access to the beach (5 min walk with a kid)... if you like partying... there’s a lot of night life close by. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay! Thanks hotel Esencia!
Great place to stay!Posted Jun 6, 2017 on Hotels
Place is so cool. Staff is very helpful and always smiling and saying hello. The beach access is right across the street and has one of the best beach spots in Santa. No need to get a car because you can walk everywhere but if you do they have a secure parking lot and security for extra peace of mind. Rooms were kept super clean. Pool is also great if you end up there. Plus there is a family of Monkeys that cruzed around from time to time. So rad.

Nice , clean and comfortable.Posted May 7, 2017
Pros: Gardens, tranquility, rooms are very comfortable.
Cons: The restaurant service and food options , they should include credit card acceptance at the restaurant or room charging.
Location: The beach off course, plenty of restaurants ( The Bakery is one of the best !!)
Nice small hotel , not too close not to far from Sta Teresa downtown, quiet , beautifull gardens ,relaxing. Food options at the restaurant are not the best and the availability also needs to improve , but there are plenty of restaurants nearby so is not a big deal.

Nice hotel close to the beachPosted Apr 26, 2017
We stayed at this hotel over the Easter holiday and it was great, clean friendly staff and close to the beach. I would recommend renting a villa vs the rooms. We were pleased with our stay at this hotel.

A good optionPosted Apr 9, 2017
A nice hotel, rooms were clean and had everything. The grounds were nice although the pool is a little smaller than it looks in the pictures but still good for getting away from the heat. The restaurant menu looked very touristy so we didn't bother. The staff although nice were not great with restaurant recommendations nor with directions. It was an nice place but possibly a little overpriced.
