Wife and I enjoyed a lovely outdoor couples massage on the pier over the water. The massage therapists Sharlette and Tiffany were friendly, well trained, and experienced. Definitely will visit this spa again next time I'm in San Pedro.

We were staying at Xanadu and noticed the place while we were making fools of ourselves splashing around in a kayak. We made an appointment for a couples massage the next day through the hotel and had no trouble getting the time we wanted and there was no wait time once we got there. Massage was comparable to quality massages... More

My wife and I have been long terming in San Pedro for 6 months and have had several massages. I met Sarah, the owner of Ocean Essence, who challenged my to try their Spa. Boy have we been missing out. Hands down the best massages on Ambergris Caye and maybe the best we have ever had. And the pedi!! In... More

Wonderful couples massage, even better setting! The breeze blowing and the waves crashing outdid any spa background music I've ever heard... and I must say, they had some amazing strategies to make sure the covers/sarong didn't blow off my body during the massage! Masters at tucking, that's for sure. It was awesome!

My wife had an excellent experience at Ocean Essence. The setting over the water created the perfect environment for a relaxing massage. She raved about Sherlette and said that she went above and beyond with her massage. Sherlette even stayed past dark to give my wife a pedicure by lamplight. Great service at a great price.

My husband and I enjoy a great couples massage when we go to the beach. We found the best place on the island here. Our therapists, Tiffany and Sherlette, did an excellent job, they were very fun! One hour, from head to toe, with the ocean breeze on your skin, and a free after service of a pedi or mani!... More

Awesome setting with sounds of the ocean all around! You don't need any CDs to relax! Tiffany was my massage therapist. She did a great job and adjusted her pressure as needed for tough or sensitive areas. Free pedicure was included with the massage! Cannot beat this location-other places boast "beach massage" but you will have people walking by. This... More

We have heard great things about Ocean Essence. I just finished a one hour massage and pedicure. The massage was incredible. Sharlette was very good. It has been months since I have had a massage and I needed serious help. I left there feeling relieved and relaxed. They are running a special which includes a free pedicure or manicure with... More

I have been coming to San Pedro every year for eight years and this is hands down the place for a massage over the water. I have had experiences in Vegas, Cabo, Dallas, Palm Springs.. For a local vibe and great massage, Ocean Essence is a must. Tiffany was great during my deep tissue massage...
