“Great stress reducer”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

M husband and I wanted to get a full massage and veg out in Boquete for a week. Our first full day in town, we met Kitzie and each had an hour massage after a 4 hour hike.

It was a great surprise to get someone as qualified and with excellent techniques. The last full day of our week we both went back for another full hour massage and full facial.

It was a wonderful experience. Maxine & Larry R

“Great experience”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

After a few months of travelling, dancing and walking I was definitely overdue for a massage. I was so glad to get such a professional and reasonably priced service, with beautiful products and in a lovely setting. I would definitely recommend booking yourself into Spa Boquete while in town.

“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

It was an absolute treat to be massaged by Kitzie. She has magical hands, a beautiful and peaceful massage space to relax and unwind in, and she also uses lovely products. At $40 for an hour, she is also amazing value. I would thoroughly recommend her.

“Best my neck has felt in a long time!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

After a hike to a waterfall over a steep, muddy, slippery trail, my neck was very stiff from the stress and I was excited to find that Spa Boquete offered 30 minute neck massages for a very reasonable price. My husband and I both treated ourselves and it was wonderful!

“The Best Kept Secret in Town!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

A short two minute walk from Central Park you’ll find the professional, caring hands and loving heart of Kitzie McKiney at Spa Boquete. English, Spanish and French are fluently spoken, so you can be certain all your needs will be understood and attended to expertly. Kitzie’s consistent re-certification commitment means you'll receive the very latest in healing approaches from the bodywork modalities she studies.

I was offered a choice of three different organic oils (in contrast to the baby oil that was slathered on me at another “top ranked” spa), as well as a choice of soothing music or relaxation sounds for my session. No fuzzy robe and slippers, just a truly personal approach to therapeutic and relaxation bodywork that I found unparalleled in the area.

As a retired holistic healthcare physician, I’ve experienced hundreds of massages by practitioners trained all over the world. My massage by Kitzie at Spa Boquete ranks in the top 5 of my career. You might find a cheaper massage in town, but you won’t find a more professional, personal or proficient one. If you’ll be visiting Boquete (or are fortunate to live there), be smart and book early to avoid disappointment.
