They offer a full range of Spa services to both Female and Male Clientele. Centrally located, parking is not hard to find also have a bike rack out front for cyclist. Great for Tourist (Elizabeth speaks Moderate English),... More

If you need a quick bikini/other wax before hitting the beach and didn't have time before leaving home then I suggest this salon. I found this place by chance but was truly impressed. Professional service, the woman there does a really good wax. Nice calming salon environment. I think one of my top underarm waxes - just one pull and... More

I found this little gem a couple of blocks from where I stayed in Playa and was so happy about it I went for 3 massages during my 10 day visit. Osmara gives a great Relaxation and Deep Tissue, on my third visit I asked for a combo and it was perfect. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is very... More

The mani / pedi was wonderful. Great chairs and nice ladies. Make an appointment if possible as when I stopped by the second time there was no availability.

I stopped by on the off chance that someone would be available to do a pedicure even though I did not have an appointment. The owner was very accommodating and I only waited a few minutes. I realize that in high season I may not have been so lucky... The pedicure was great and very relaxing! High quality polish (OPI)... More
