The people are calm and quiet from the front desk through to the masseuses, even the person who set up our couples hydrotherapy bath, a must have BTW. The views are wonderful as they are everywhere in Monterey, and they help you feel so pampered. We had the couples bubbly massage package and it was so worth it. The hydro... More

My experience at Vista Blue was amazing! It even turned my husband into a spa goer. We received the private bath treatment and it was perfect. The view of the bay from our tub was gorgeous! Kim and Andrea made it a really great experience for us. We will definitely be back soon!

Booked our massages at the same time as our stay at the Monterey Plaza. We both enjoyed our massages and would book again at Vista Blue.

Due to rain, I spent the day at Vista Blue Spa. The gym was small but decent. All of my services were good - bubble bath over looking the ocean, 80 minute exfoliation and massage, facial, pedi/mani - and lunch. The best thing about this spa is how friendly all of the employees were.

On our anniversary yesterday, I called in the morning to schedule a couples massage for that day. We had to keep it last minute because my husband's work schedule was a bit up in the air. The reception staff were just great at finding a slot for us at 1230, which was absolutely the perfect time for us. When we... More

We stayed at the Monterey Plaza Hotel for a long weekend (from Thursday to Sunday) to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary. I made reservations for a couples massage prior to coming to the hotel for Saturday. After checking in to the hotel, we arrived to our room and went back down stairs to explore the hotel. On the way, I... More
