I only went here for a short treatment but the rooms and ambience are very ordinary. The therapist was also very junior although I may just have been unlucky. I think there are probably nicer spas in Port.

I loved every minute of my half hour Swedish massage with Claudia. She made every effort to fix my shoulder which had been playing up and found all these other kinks in my back and worked all of them out too! The only downside was that the rooms are situated right above a pub and at the time, a large group of people were outside (loudly) enjoying their time at the pub. I wasn't put off though, I just didn't pay it any attention.

We visited here as the brochure presented the place so well and the lady was so friendly when we walked in. The 90 min massage was awkward and excruciating, I could not wait for it to end. There was no flow, and certainly no relaxation - I wanted to leave after ten minutes. I certainly wish we hsad gone elsewhere, should have done a bit of research on that spur of the moment decision.

What a shame Lyndaal .I've checked with your therapists to see what happened .You had requested deep tissue for your partner and I had put him with a therapist reknowned for her firm pressure ( mercilessly deep pressure is a hot favourite ! ).As you were in the couples suite , your therapist was also present and distinctly remembers the therapist checking if the pressure was O.K. - to which he responded in the affirmative .
Your therapist , however , specialises in Korean Medical massage and is most famous for his ability to shift deep seated blockages and restore harmony to poor , stressed knotted up bodies .This is not the most " flowing " massage and is better suited to those who need a problem solver . Please forgive us for not putting you with a lighter , gentler masseur - it was a particularly busy day and I'd managed to put you in at the last minute , into our two last available spots .
