“Fantastic Message!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I wanted you to know that Jillian was amazing! I have had many good messages before, but her attentiveness, listening, professionalism and extreme skill were far beyond what I have previously experienced - fantastic!!!! The other staff members I met were also friendly and helpful. Also, thank you for working me in on the same day. This turned my spur-of-the-moment trip into a magical one - I can't wait to bring my wife for a couples message!!
(For reference, I phoned in for an appointment after arriving on the island for a deep tissue message and services were performed at the Sea Spa location on Claressa.) - PLW, Lakewood, CA

“An Angel's Touch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

I purchased this massage as a gift for a loved one and decided to join in since I had never had a full body (blushing) massage. Michelle is the owner and has been doing massages for 9 years. Her touch literally brought tears to my eyes. Thank you Michelle for introducing me to this and helping me shed my inhibitions. I will defintely be back to see you this summer.

“Nothing like what the other reviews claimed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

I'm not sure how this place has received such positive reviews in the past. Our experience left a lot to be desired. We received a couples massage at the spa, rather than in our hotel room. Perhaps that's the key difference. The spa location is strange. It's on the second floor, down a long, dark hallway with no windows, and leads into two small rooms. The rooms are very outdated and somewhat "dingy." Our two therapists arrived right at the start of our appointment, so after they and we were both ready it was already 10 minutes or more into the appt window. Our two therapists were working way out of sync with each other. Mine asked me questions about injuries, areas of concern, pressure, etc., but my boyfriend's therapist didn't say a word to him. His therapist turned him over while mine hadn't even gotten to my other leg. It was just weird and felt really rushed. I also heard them whispering when we got there about how today was supposed to be a day off and one had another appt immediately after ours and would need to leave right away. I would not recommend their services at all.
