“Know before you go.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

I went to the spa for an organic facial and cocoa body massage/treatment. It's the package that this spa is "famous" for. In March the outdoor temperature was terrific, except for a period of about 10 minutes during the body wrap when I felt a little overheated. I could see that if you went at a cooler/wetter or significantly hotter time of year, it could be uncomfortable since you are exposed to ambient temperature. I am from Houston and am used to fairly warm, humid weather.

I really enjoyed the body tepreatment, particularly the exfoliation part which was like having the best back scratch ever! The massage that followed was very therapeutic which helped to identify and work on some stress points in my back. This was what I needed, but those expecting a more relaxing experience should probably explicitly ask for this. I didn't specify, and my back was SORE the next day from the therapeutic massage.

Following the exfoliation and message, I was misted and then the cocoa powder was applied, and I was wrapped in plastic (like Saran Wrap) while the therapist did my facial. I assume they do this so you'll have plenty of time to "steep" while you are completing your facial. The facial was also VERY thorough, so much so that it was painful at times during whitehead extraction. Once again, I appreciated the result --very clean skin--but I would not classify that part of the treatment as relaxing at all.

Once we finished the facial, I unwrapped, showered off, and was done. It was about 2-1/2 hours, start to finish.

As others have noted, the rooms are open to the jungle on one side, and you are expected to be naked during the treatment with-at times-fairly minimal coverage over private areas. I didn't see any Peeping Toms, thank goodness.

All-in-all, I feel that I got very thorough treatment and certainly felt refreshed and renewed afterwards. The cocoa scent lingered thru the day, which I enjoyed, and my skin looked and felt terrific.

“A complete sanctuary!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

My boyfriend and I had a couples massage while we were spending a week in Quepos. The massages were top notch, the atmosphere and service were as well. I have been a licensed massage therapist for 10 years in Washington state, USA and I have to say that this was one of the most skilled massages I have ever received. The setting could not be better. We also had Marta come to our Villa and do a morning yoga session on the deck for about 10 of us that was in out group. It was a wonderful session that fit all skill levels and left me feeling physically and mentally revived! We will most certainly return the next time we visit!

Me and my wife had the moon light massage and it was one of the most relaxing 2 hours of my life. Beautiful scenery and very cool to listen to the sounds on the jungle.
