I never stayed here but went to Donna for a haircut. I was referred by a friend and thought I was in good hands. When I got there, I showed her a clear photo of what I wanted -- a textured shag. She proceeded to hack into my hair and ended up giving me what looked like a bob, with... More

Unfortunately I was not able to make my available times work with Donna's appointment schedule - it was the beginning of Carnival and she had left the island for a short holiday. However, I wanted people to know that if writing your name and contact information on the door to schedule an appointment doesn't fit your comfort level, Donna is... More

The lil' spa shop by the sea is not only a great place to stop in and get a massage, but also a great place to stay while in Bocas Town! Donna is an excellent host and makes you feel right at home. The shop has three little cabins in the back - all of which are so charming and... More

Since 7 months I live in Bocas, and already on my first weekend, I went to Lil´ Spa Shop: what a good choice! I always go there for Brazilian wax and Donna does it so good, she´s fast and it hardly hurts! Apart from the good services and the friendly atmosphere, the place is sooo beautiful: stunning views of the... More

So, not a great way to start out a vacation, but I somehow threw my neck out the first day I arrived. I called Donna (WONDERFUL, kind and lovely woman), and she set me up with Erica, a certified masseuse from the US. I cannot recommend her enough! If you like deep tissue massage, and really good pressure look no... More

Me and my girlfriend got Brazilian waxes. We walked in around four and she gave us our waxes right away. Donna was really friendly and made you feel at home. My friend had never gotten one before and was quite nervous but once in the room Donna made her much more comfortable. The price was incredibly reasonable. And you can... More

I had a 65 minute hot stone massage this past week and can highly recommend a visit to Lil Spa Shop by the Sea. I'm fortunate to have had many massages and all were enjoyable. BUT all too rarely have I found a masseuse who is special, who has more than just education, who has that innate ability to feel... More

This massage was just what I needed! Listening to the waves and the feel of the breeze made this an amazing, relaxing experience! A must do in Bocas!

This was one of the best massage experiences I had. Donna had the table set-up at the end of the boat house near the water. The warm breeze and setting along with her technique made for a welcome escape.
