Great massage!

One of the top massages my wife & I have ever had. Would have gone back again if I had the time. Don't go on vacation anywhere near Puerto Morelos without booking a massage here.

Best massages ever! This Spa is not like your usual resort experience however what it lacks in luxury it more than exceeds with results. You can have a relaxing massage or a more therapeutic one. Soft, medium or hard it is up to you. The Mayan Deluxe is over 1 1/2 hours and well worth your time. I have had... More

First of all, the location is the real Mexico. The Colonia is where all the people live who work at the resorts, etc. - real working families.Secondly, these women massage from generations of healing touch, not massage school, although they are fully certified. I have had massages all over the world - these women truly connect on a different level.... More

Went with a girlfriend who had a very very different experience. Very unique spot, in the jungle on the outskirts of Puerto Morelos. I opted for a 90 minute chocolate massage. ...looking forward to some deep tissue work which was promoted heavily in the description of the Mayan massage. My massage was mainly fluff and buff with most of the... More

Sorry to hear about your experience. I did ask the person who gave your massage about the telephone and she said there was an emergency with her 6 year old daughter. Normally when you get a soft massage it means you don't have any problems? After your massage you get your wrap of choice aloe or chocolate and you are... More

This is like nothing I ever experienced! Wow! These women have the strongest hands I have ever felt. It is a combo of relaxation and torture (in a good way). I walked out feeling magnificent! This is a fun outing away from the beaches. Deep in the jungle, you might even see the monkeys if you are lucky. Love Sandra's... More

This spa has a unique proprietor and a special history, and Sandy the proprietor will tell you all about it. What truly is special is the Mayan massage skills these women have. Don't do less than 90 minutes and, if you can, schedule more than 1, with a couple days between. It will hurt - my masseuse found lots of... More

My husband and I had massages today and they were amazing! Nothing fancy but in the jungle and best 90 minute massage by a local Mayan woman who knew how to find the spots. Scrap the hotel spa - this is the real deal and you're supporting community tourism!

This is my second visit to the Jungle Spa. I absolutely love the traditional Mayan massage and I know that it has helped with my back issues (sciatica) quite a bit although it certainly did not feel that way while getting worked on, but as Sandra always says, "Suck it up, buttercup!" She knows what she is talking about and... More
