While on my honeymoon in Placencia I got a 1 hour massage with Lee. It was incredible. I walked out of there feeling so great. I would definitely recommend seeing her if you are in town. I get a massage weekly back home and they do not compare. When I go back to Placencia I will be getting another massage.... More

The owner, LeeAnn, was professional and timely in greeting us for our couples massage. Only having a few massages previously, hers was better than others I've had in the past. I would definitely recommend The Secret Garden and will return on our next trip.

I went to Lee because my scoliosis left me unable to turn my head to the left without pinching my neck. Lee took care of it! I got the best massage I've ever had. After a deep massage and alignment therapy my pain was gone! Thank you Lee! I feel so much better and stronger and aligned inside and out.... More

Found the atmosphere to be very relaxing and therapist outstanding. She knew the exact amount of pressure to use in each area and spent the right amount of time on areas that needed more attention. Never felt any discomfort as she worked on knots or tight muscles. The location fit the name of the spa perfectly as it was a... More

We made sure to get a couples massage on our first morning in Belize. Lee stayed in prompt email correspondence and fit us in exactly when we wanted. The massage was awesome and it sounded like we were in the trees surrounded by birds. We agreed that we definitely could've stayed for 2 hours!! I will be booking again upon... More

The location of this place is amazing! Lots of hanging trees in the heart of town, up in the treetops. Once the fans and music start all other sound is drowned out. I worried about being so hot during the massage but the fans did the job. Definitely a nice relaxing thing to do for yourself while visiting placencia.

My husband and I had the 1 hour couples massage our final day in Placencia. I normally prefer outdoor massages while on vacation so despite being inside, being able to hear the birds made for a very relaxing massage. Made it seem like we were still in the rain forest. The massages were fantastic and the price was right on... More

Lee came to the villa I had rented to do my massage. She will make house calls if there are at least 3 people. I have had massages all over the world and this one ranked right up there. I have a chronic shoulder problem and she made it feel much better. She used just the right amount of pressure... More

I really needed a massage to loosen up my shoulders and Juana (sp?) provided relaxing relief. She knew how to warm up the muscles, work on the knots, and then cool down the muscles to prevent excessive soreness. I have had tons of massages and The Secret Garden was definitely in my top ten!
