I visited Belize for my birthday with friends and we decided to have massages done on the beach. OMG these women were AMAZING!! The best massage I've had. They were on time, friendly, and massaged our bodies so well. If you are considering a massage while visiting San Pedro you MUST schedule with ocean essence!!!

We stayed at the Grand Caribe - booking 3 massages. Ocean Essence had lost their facility in the hurricane but they were very accommodating and came to us with their tables, wraps, oils etc. The girls were very professional and did a wonderful job. If your room or the beach is relaxing I would absolutely recommend!

This past weekend myself and 10 of my girlfriends had the pleasure of receiving massages from Ocean Essence Day Spa. While I was looking forward to the massage over the dock experience, they replicated the atmosphere from our 3 floor balcony at Athens Gate Resort. They arrived early and serviced all of us. They brought 3 women and was able... More

It was the best massage I have ever had (out of several) Carmen and Shajiri were not only friendly but extremely talented! They came right to our hotel and set up all of their stuff, it was really convenient! If you want to feel relaxed... More

Sadly, the spa on the waterfront was taken out by Hurricane Earl. When I wrote to schedule an appointment, Sara indicated they would come to our lodging. This was awesome! In this way we were able to stay inside in the A/C (is has been in the high 90s this week) and then stay in our lodging without having to... More

On our 'down' day in San Pedro, we treated our son to a massage for his birthday and our daughter to a pedicure. Once we saw how the amazing treatments they were receiving, their father and I couldn't pass them up. So, it was a family affair, and all the services were provided right on our veranda at Xanadu.

On the pier, over blue water, waves lapping underneath, ocean breeze blowing, and a massage? Sign me up! Been going here for several years and still the absolute highlight of a trip to Ambergris! Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa on 5th Avenue in Manhattan doesn't hold a candle to Ocean Essence in my opinion!
