Unexperienced masseuse
Sep 2019 • Friends
I had a facial and massage at this venue. The facial was good however my massage was below average. My masseuse was unexperienced and clearly lacked training in massages. It was very disappointing as it was not relaxing and at times painful. My friend however had a great massage which now makes me more angry noting I paid the same amount.

My masseuse was blowing her nose and coughing, got me sick!
Feb 2019 • Couples
I would avoid this spa at all costs if you have any standards in life. As another review mentioned, the massage table kept creaking the whole time and my masseuse kept stopping to blow her nose and coughing. Now unsurprisingly, I'm sick! I'm starting to have a fever and my throat has been sore for 2 days. How are you going to have your masseuse work when she's contagious.

On top of that, the masseuse didn't really know what she was doing. She was the type of masseuse that would just brute force her way into pressing down on your muscles without really moving in zen with the muscles. Echoing that same reviewer, the masseuse just kept rubbing insane amounts of oil all over my body and afterwards I felt like I was just dunked in a giant pool of oil. I also did have to take 2 showers it felt so nasty.

And the spa itself was not a relaxing environment at all. The windows and doors were open and you could hear the loud cars on the busy street near by. You're literally getting your muscles jammed constantly without any finesse while being distracted by the loud surroundings.

My wife and I paid about $35 USD each for 90 minute massages for both of us. We originally had booked 2 hours and luckily we changed it to 90 minutes at the last minute. Should have just skipped out on it entirely. Seriously, find yourself a more expensive spa if you want to enjoy any bit of your time. We only picked this spa because it was walking distance from our hotel.

Terrible waxing.
Nov 2017 • Friends
I don't know if it's just because we were stereotyped as "gringa tourists" but my friend and I had our legs waxed one night. We took the last appointment of the day because that's all they had left. The girl rushed through the both of us, completely missing huge parts of both of our legs. We gave them the benefit of the doubt since it was the end of a long day she probably just wanted to go home. A few weeks later we returned, this time coming on a slow day. The same thing happened, they rushed through the both of us. This time my friend got a bikini wax. HORRIBLE. I have my cosmetology license in the US. I have waxed for a living and would never let a girl walk out looking how my friend did. We came home and had to do emergency tweezing and aloe treatments because she was so red and inflamed still with hair everywhere. Also they do not sanitize your skin before waxing and use the same stick the entire time so who knows what kind of sanitation issues are going on here. Definitely would not recommend for waxing.

Worst massage ever!
Aug 2017 • Couples
My husband and I booked a couples massage and it was the worst massage ever. For both of us. Almost funny now that 24 hours have passed but not at the time. The table I was on was rickety and basically a folding table with no padding and one terribly old towel. I thought for sure the table was going to collapse. His wasn't much better. The massage therapists basically just covered us in tons of sweet smelling oil. No real massage at all. I had to ask my girl to stop after she kept adding more oil and went to put the oil all over my face. Had to shower twice once we got home to get all the oil off. Would not recommend this place. Horrible.

It is a place in the city but with rustic and natural touches. The owner is very friendly and is always worried that one is feeling good. The massage is very professional and I especially recommend the one with stones.
