We had a really nice experience at the Catalina Sea Spa. My husband booked the 90 minute massage plus body scrub as a surprise for my birthday. They were very accommodating to our schedule, which changed several times throughout the day, and we're able to fit is in when we requested. The space was an apartment converted into a no-frills,...

Took a girls weekend trip and was looking most forward to a relaxing day at the spa with my girlfriends. Our arrival was pleasant and the gals who worked there were nice but I was disappointed not just with my service but my girls were as well with their's. I got a facial with an added body scrub. Although I... More

I was given the massage as a gift, went into it with a neutral attitude based on past massages at other places. Can I just say "wow"; I walked out a new person! The deep tissue was perfect, atmosphere is clean, lovely and ideal. staff wonderful to deal with and very gracious.

Boyfriend and I came here over my birthday weekend. We waited til the morning of to call and *fingers crossed* they had an opening that afternoon.

A charming little massage studio/spa. Very simple interior, but nice ambiance. A wonderful deep tissue 80 minute massage by the owner Michelle which made me nod off to sleep so I know it did the trick in relaxing me! My hubby played golf and woke up the next morning achy and she was so nice to schedule him that afternoon... More

My husband and I called for an appointment for a couples massage. It was simple and pleasant scheduling and specifying what we wanted (prenatal for her; deep tissue for him). Our massage was timely and we both were pleased with our massage. The only critique was that the deep tissue was a bit light, but we should have specified what... More

We called and they were able to accommodate us for the next day. They offered a 90 min couples massage combination of massage, face scrub, scalp scrub and all over body scrub. It all felt amazing and the two ladies were very professional. My only "complaint" would be no showers after. We were a bit gritty and oily for our... More

My husband took the kids for a couple hours so I stopped in to see if I could get a massage. They took me right away and I had the most wonderful massage. Maybe the best one I've had. I can't remember my therapist's name, but she was great and the other lady I spoke with was also very nice!... More
