I organized a group trip to Boracay and one thing I personally was looking forward to was a "beach massage". My partner saw a review online for a particular spa (one that I will not name) along the white sand beach, and when we walked by it one evening 3 females of our group decided they wanted to try it out. The next morning I got complaints from them that it was not satisfactory and very unprofessional. As I still hadn't had my massage, I was determined to find a better place and checked out the top 10 spas on the Boracay TripAdvisor list. All of the top ones were way over our budget, except for Merry Heart, at that time #7 on that list. So that morning I visited them and .arranged a 9 person massage at the same time in the afternoon. The price was slightly higher than the first originally recommended (not good) place, and we also had to pay a deposit at the time of booking, but it was worth it! The masseuses performed a very professional gentle massage that very obviously had a logical step-by-step system to it that they had to master before working there. All of my group came out feeling very relaxed and with only positive things to say about the experience. We went with the 705 peso hour-long signature/classic massage at the top of their list (but given to us at 700 pax), as a reference. Their facility, although simple (more like a doctor's office in the USA where I'm from), is very clean and modern. Apparently they mainly cater to Korean tourists, so maybe the massage isn't really a truly Philippine one, but I most definitely would recommend this place to travelers on a budget!

My partner and I both had the Swedish massage in the upstairs couples room. 700 peso each for 1hr which is roughly $20AUD, great value since we usually pay $60AUD for a 45min massage in Australia. My masseuse was great, however my partner said his was lacking the strength to really get into his tight knots. Rooms are clean and air-conditioned. Only con is that they don't wipe you down afterwards and instead hand you a wet towel to attempt to get off all that massage oil on your own.

I came by this spa because it was near my hotel and I also saw positive reviews on TripAdvisor. The place seemingly caters to Koreans in general, with barely any other languages on their notices. When I walked in there wasn't any receptionist so I helped myself to the price lists (pink in colour, and in both korean and english) on the table, which had seemingly reasonable massage prices (compared to Boracay), with massage at 350 pesos /h. I was all set to try it out, but when the receptionist returned, she took away the pink price lists and handed out a green one (in both Korean and English) one instead. The same one hour massage was now worth 15usd, or 650pesos. I'm not sure why any decent establishment would need two price lists, and where the extra money/commission goes, but my tourist instincts kicked in and I immediately felt that the place was a dodgey one and left. Beware!
