During a three day stay at a resort in Quepos, by the second day I decided I wanted to enjoy the luxury of a relaxing massage. So I grabbed a taxi and just asked the driver to take me to a good place for a massage. He dropped me off at Raindrop Spa, and that was the beginning of an event that I can only describe as good fortune mixed with a fair share of fate.
As I entered the reception area, I was greeted by a lady whom I later got to know as Marta. She was the congenial host, and asked what I was interested in. I explained I was looking for a basic relaxation massage, but of a longer duration... 90 minutes. I was directed to a lovely and tranquil seating area where I completed the basic questionaire about health conditions, etc., and was at that time also given a lovely juice cocktail as a refreshing beverage.
My good fortune continued, as it was not very busy at that time of day, and I was able to see a masseuse immediately. The rooms are all three sided, with the far end wall being non-existent. You basically lie on the table, staring out into the great tropical forest that surrounds the facility, but at the same time retaining the privacy of your own room as no one else in adjoining rooms can see into your own.
The massage itself was excellent, and a bit of blend of various massage techniques... some I recognize as Swedish, Thai, and some that I'm not as familiar with. The end result was amazing, and I'm embarrassed to say that I was so relaxed I know I dozed off for a few minutes several times through the treatment. I'm assuming I didn't snore, as the birds still seemed to be around each time I awoke. lol
After the massage, I was greeted by Marta again, and we had a lovely chat about a variety of topics. But eventually I had to leave, so I paid my bill, and said my farewells. Would I go back again... absolutely. Would I recommend this place to others... absolutely. Professional staff, lovely surroundings, reasonal prices... its all good.
