I had a massage here after a long week of diving and it was exactly what I needed. Spa del Sol is a nice, quiet place--perfect for taking a much-needed break.

I had the pleasure of visiting Spa del Sol on July 11th and did the Total Relax package with Paula. I'll have to admit that I originally booked an appointment with another spa recommended on this website but the response time in order to book my appointment and then being told the time slot I requested was no longer available made me look for another Spa and Spa del Sol was exactly what I needed. My appointment was done online with no hassle at all. I enjoyed the fact that is was in the heart of downtown Cozumel which allowed me time to do some sightseeing and when I showed up early and asked if they could accomodate me they did so with a smile. During my time with Paula I was so relaxed that I dozed off about 4 times. I left walking on clouds and thought the service, atmosphere, and price were all great and I will return to Spa del Sol on my next visit to Cozumel.

My husband and I were staying at the Presidente in Cozumel and I planned to spend my time at the spa. Unfortunately the resort's spa, in my opinion, is over priced and not very good. A friend of mine ran across the web site for Spa Del Sol and recommended it. I was more than pleased with my service!!! Baula was one of the best therapist I have ever had (and I have had many massages)! She was very flexible with my appointments and even adjusted my services based on my body's needs. I am going back in September and I plan on using her again!!

My husband and I were staying on the island of Cozumel for two weeks and we both went in for a massage. When we arrived, we were greeting professionally by a woman fluent in English who told us that they have two massage rooms and could accomodate each of us one after another or if we could come back in the afternoon, they could do massages on both of us at the same time. We opted to come back after some shopping in the downtown area. When we returned, we were offered cool Cristal bottled water as we waited for them to finish with the previous clients. I had Paula as my massage therapist and we had a wonderful discussion of travel, religion, and politics. My husband actually prefers to rest when he has a massage, so he did not dialogue with his therapist. There are two rooms, so they can only manage two clients in an hour's time, so that may required booking in advance or returning a hour or so later. I paid for an hour massage, but I can assure you they worked well over an hour on each of us. There was no time clock ticking. This was a wonderful experience and we were offered a discount if we wished to return later on our vacation. I will definitely return to this location again and you can rest assured that you are in the hands of well-trained massage therapists.

This can be a tourist trap.

I read the reviews here and I see why they are good: The people who had good experiences never tried to make an advanced appointment with Spa Del Sol.

We did, and here's what happened:
We were asked to send a $20 deposit via Paypal for each one hour appointment we requested to "secure our appointments" only to be told AFTER they took our $40 that the times we requested were not available and they were keeping the money.

Their policy is that you must cancel at least 24 hours before to get your deposit back, but Spa del Sol waited until less than 24 hours before the appointments to tell us that the appointments were not available. They also apologized for the delay on their side in getting back to us (it took five days) but there was no delay at all in accepting our payment.

I would say: walk-ins are safe, but as in every other tourist driven economy where they aren't governed by the same rules as here in the U.S: don't pay money before you know what you're getting.

That was our mistake (on our honeymoon) and I didn't want it to be yours.

Has anyone else had this happen to them?
