This place was located on the beach and only hired blind masseurs to give massages. It was a good price and handily located right in front of a bar that served buy one get one free 80 piso cocktails all day long. The man himself Abe is very friendly and chatted with us when he'd finished giving the massage. Good... More

It was my first trip to Boracay with a friend and naturally, we looked up TripAdvisor for places of interests and attractions. We reviewed the spas available and saw the review of 'Massage by Abe'. My friend was determined to check this place out and so we did. I was a little skeptical at first as I had never been... More

This is the 1st time I am giving a feedback in tripadvisor and I hope to share my wonderful experience from Boracay. Just returned about 4 days ago and I still miss the massage at Abe's place. We bumped into his place which is along station 3 and just near Villa Camellia, and asked about the massage. Charges are reasonable... More

Just returned from Boracay where I was fortunate enough to receive several massages from Abe. I have had back pain for years and this disappeared after the second session and until now has not returned. I received 1 massage in Abes' house and saw his qualifications. A very strong man.

Living in Boracay for 6 years, I pay a regular visit to Abe. He is, so far, the best beach massage I've had. He's taking care of my back problems, my aches after hard rowing trainings. He even massaged me with great care while I was pregnant and after my recovery. Cheap and very friendly, he'll always go with the... More

These guys might not be monitored by the department of pristine hygiene, but who cares? It's natural. You can jump straight into the ocean or take a shower when you're done. Super-cheap, relaxing massage under the palm trees right on the beach beside the walking path - sand in your toes included :).

The massage itself is fine, but the table is smack off the side of the road with no privacy. The first time we did it, we thought it was great, but soon realized that we had to closely watch our stuff during the massage as anyone can walk off with it as Abe is blind. Also, the table is not... More

My wife and i have been there for an hours massage several times, combi of swedish and shiatsu. Fantastic. The fact that Abe and his friends are blind seems to make them even better in feeling were you have problems. 400 pesos for an hour! They also come to your room to do the massage, escorted by a seeing person.... More
