Esencia is a luxurious estate turned small resort with gorgeous rooms, all with private plunge pools and modern amenties like flat screen TVs and surround sound audio systems with MP3 ports. It's on Playa Xpu-Ha, which is a long white sand beach--classic Caribbean. When I was at the resort there were always plenty of lounge chairs/palapas for guests to use (ie no need to get up early to 'save' a beachfront spot). There's also a gourmet restaurant onsite plus a full-service spa; yoga classes are offered every morning too.

I've stayed at just about all of the super high-end places in the Riviera Maya (la dee da! Sounds more grand than it is!), and this is the place I fantasize about going back to most. It's fairly small, the staff is exceptionally professional and attentive without overdoing it, and the food is very good. It's also on a stretch of beach without any really huge neighbors, so you can still squint and pretend you're in somewhere a little bit more deserted. Random thing that sticks with me from this place: electrical outlets were exactly where I needed them to be in the rooms. It's that kind of attention to detail...
