It is a small resort 30 rooms, really beautiful grounds, on a gorgeous piece of beach (xpu ha beach) between playa del carmen and tulum.
Is anyone else getting married at esencia?
I introduced myself a little bit ago, but fell off the forum for a little bit...
Just to give you guys some background- I'm a wedding photographer, specializing in destination weddings, so finding a unique spot was pretty key- I feel so lucky to have found esencia- and so excited to have our wedding there.
Oh, and here's our wedding website in case anyone's interested....www.kennyandkaren.net

Its is sooooo amazing. Our only concern was that they asked us to commit in our contract that 50% of our guests would stay for 5 nights. We feel uncomfortable assuming our guests will stay that long. Especially during high season when the rates are 500+. Did this concern you?
What an amazing place to have a wedding! Congrats!

mexico09 & kelcrooks- here are more details
we were hesitant about committing because of the room night requirement, but i think there is room to negotiate with them depending on your date and # of people. we chose oct 26th as our date, which is still considered low season but is close to the cusp- and i think that helped us negotiate a little bit, we are also having a smaller wedding of about 60 people. We were concerned about the requirement and basically got it down to a 50% requirement and had them convert it to room nights in total. So since we will be staying longer and so will some of our guests, we were able to reach that # quicker. we also sent out emails to our closest friends before we booked it and asked if they'd be able to stay here with us. The room rates we received were a discounted group rate, i believe the standard room is 350 after the discount, which helped make it a little more reasonable. The tricky part is that there are only 8 rooms at that rate, and then it went up from there, 10 more rooms at 420 & so on. the woman we spoke to in sales was sandra- and she was very helpful and accomodating- here's her email address: Sandra Beltran/ Groups & Weddings:
firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll try attaching the rate sheet they sent me - hope this works....
let me know if you have any other questions
