Four of us wanted to start the New Year with a spa experience. We chose El Morocco after looking at reviews and spa websites. I've experienced the large casino/spas and find them sterile and uninteresting. El Morocco was everything we wanted, warm, inviting, cozy, nurturing, and a great value! Bruce greeted us and gave us all the info we needed, and made us feel welcome. The decor and ambiance was a treat for all the senses.
Our massages were the best!!!!! Ruby and Gloria were so skilled and they truly have "healing hands". We had "shiatsu", "whirling dervish" and "raindrop". Prices for one hour were between $100 and $120.
At no extra cost, we were allowed to utilize the pool and the mineral water hot tub until 4 pm. A special tea/lemonade and local water were available at all times.
Ernest was very helpful, and we enjoyed talking with him and keeping him from his "chores".
We received exactly the experience we wanted and will definitely return.
We live in the area, so just did a day trip, but I would reccomend staying at this "boutique" hotel and spa if you are vacationing in the area and want a unique nurturing experience.
Thank you so much El Morocco!
