I received both a facial and a massage. The massage was wonderful. The facial was not good. The woman gave a facial and arm massage in such a way that I felt like a wet dog was slobbering all over me. And I hate dogs. It was awful. Unrelaxing. Almost walked out.

My daughter treated me to a spa package that included working out at the facilities gym, a massage and relaxation via the sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. For starters, the staff is phenomenal making you feel welcome and relaxed. The locker room is clean with decor and facilities that are up-to-date. There's a male attendant that assists as needed. I... More

From the moment you are greeted to the moment the staff wishes you a good evening, we couldn't have been more impressed or pampered. We did the Romance package and added pedicures. The staff hardly changes so we were greeted as friends even though we only come once a year. Say hello to Kai, Michelle and Tanya in the salon.... More

The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because I didn't do a massage because it was so freakin pricey. We had access to the spa because of my Diamond Status. It's nice and quiet, unlike the main pool area. Enough chairs, both in the sun and the shade. The only downside is that the lap pool has 3... More

I had two services here in one stay. I did not tell the 1st women (Rachel) I was returning. The 2nd person (Tatiana) was fully briefed on my needs, issues and likes from my personal profile. I am dealing with some issues and the two therapists were very invested in providing great service and care. I have been to Canyon... More

The spa is really incredible, you can get there early and make use of light snacks and beverages or their hot tub/pool. Its a very relaxing environment. I received the Anara massage which was amazing. The private room had a view of outside but still a wall so it felt private. Afterward I was welcome to use the sauna or... More

I have never had a massage as good as this one. The woman who was my masseuse knew exactly what to do. I cannot recommend the spa enough..
