After a bad experience at another spa, I was ecstatic to get ahold of Carey, the owner, to get an an appointment here. What a life-altering experience! Carey was very attentive and personable. She listened to my request and my situation. She texted and emailed to keep me updated and ensure I was cared for.

When I got to the appointment, what a great experience! From the moment we (a friend and I were traveling for work) walked in, the fragrance of the spa was so soothing and pleasant. We were greeted immediately and it was very beautiful. The owner checked us in and introduced each of us to our therapists.

I was cared for by Elexia. Wow. Her voice was so soothing and her skills were above and beyond what could only be described and heaven-sent.
She knew exactly where I hurt, how hard to push, and just where my therapeutic edge was without even asking. I came in for my appointment in a lot of pain and high stress. I left as an entirely new person, completely relaxed and in euphoria from the pain and stress relief.

Everything from the front door to the linen in the rooms was carefully selected and gave a wonderful feeling of zen.

I will ABSOLUTELY be returning, as I am now a member of their loyalty program! This was the BEST experience ever. My only complaint is that I cannot take them back home (east coast) with me!

We booked a 90-minute couples massage, and it was the first time we'd been here. Irene and Jalissa were both fabulous! My husband and I agreed this was one of the top three massages we've ever had. The spa is fairly small, but peaceful and nicely decorated, with its own parking lot which is a plus. Jalissa and Irene were both very intuitive; finding those spots of tension and carefully working them out. My only complaint was not being offered any water at the end of the massage, but other than that it was an amazing value for the price.

My number one place to pamper myself is Monterey Day Spa. I’m a busy mom of 3 and I get a massage once a month for necessary body maintenance. I leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. Their loyalty program is the best deal in town. Pedicures are also amazingly indulgent. I highly recommend them to visitors and locals alike!

James was a wonderful massage therapist! Not only did he pay attention to my areas of concern...and was just very good! The spa is a small business on a busy street, but the environment is quiet and soothing, as it should be. This was my second time at MDS; it will not be my last.

Waking up with back pain whilst on vacation is not fun but thank you to all at Monterey Day Spa for helping sort me out. Everything was very professional from the moment I called to make my appointment. There is a real feeling of calm and tranquillity on arrival with a comfortable waiting area. My treatment was carried out by the truly lovely Tatiana. I left feeling relaxed and unwound. Thank you!

Everyone has their favorite masseuse at home, but this is one of those places that you can visit on vacation and not be disappointed! Very reasonable prices. 90 min massage and 60 min facial for $200. We were so relaxed and pleased with the services and products. We even purchased some facial products to take home! Make this a must on your trip to Monterey!

My husband and I went for one night to Monterey and had a wonderful experience at the Monterey Day Spa. As new parents this was our first time away in 4 months and we definitely wanted to have a nice relaxing time. We got the sea salt soak and couple's massage. It was the best experience we ever had. It was my husband's first time and he could not have been any happier! From the moment you get there it is a professional and relaxing time. I recommend this spa to anyone. The masseuse's we had were fantastic and it was definitely worth it. We'll be making this a yearly thing!

When I travel, I like to enjoy a spa day toward the end of my trip. This would've been a member experience, however, the ending really made it poor. I booked a package with a body scrub and massage along with a spa pedicure. The robe that was left for me to put on after my scrub so I could walk to the shower had a sleeve inside out. Even though my appointment was at their opening time, their was a basket FULL of used tissues in the bathroom/shower room. The shower wasn't started for me so I had to wait for the water to heat up.

I returned for my massage which was ok. After the massage, I was given a spa gift of the dry brush she used on me and two plastic condiment cups filled with body scrub for me to take. What am I supposed to do with two flimsy salad dressing type cups of body scrub? They aren't sealed. I certainly can't put them in my suitcase.

I was then told thanks and to have a good day. I had to go back to the counter and interrupt two employees conversation to tell them I had booked another treatment.

My final straw was when another employee interrupted my pedicure to ask if the woman doing it wanted anything from Starbucks. Are you kidding me? I knew I should've waited until I got to San Francisco to go to a spa.

The massage part of the Spa Pedicure involved zero pressure and really was just a woman running lotion on my legs. There's no dryer so I was stuck just sitting there while this other woman walked up and asked me to settle my account.

I brought my daughter for her first leg and bikini waxing based on a friends recommendation. My daughter was very nervous but Kathryn was really terrific. She put her at ease and took her time with her. Kathryn did a great waxing and gave lots of good advice on how to get the rash down. My daughter will be back for sure

A solo getaway to relax and pamper myself! This spa is always very clean and welcoming. The massage therapists are very professional and truly care that you have a wonderful massage. I've had the BEST massages and the BEST manicure here. Ive been here three times and have had great customer service and relaxing massages consistently. I will definitely return!
