My treatments here fell a bit short of expectations; the spa failed to deliver on several items promised on the spa menu and lacked the little touches and attention to detail expected from a 5-star facility. On the plus side, my massage was quite good, with a good amount of pressure. I could tell it was performed by an experienced... More

We booked spa appointments only a couple days ahead of time. We were not staying at the hotel. We came for the spa appointment and then went to the pool and had lunch on the beautiful decks overlooking the ocean and jungle. My massage therapist was amazing. One of the best massages I have ever had. We ended up staying... More

My wife and I got the couples massage followed by a body wrap. The massage was good, I think (I usually fall asleep!), and the wrap was different. If I could do it over again I'd just do the 90 min massage instead. Nice spa atmosphere. I recommend.

My husband and I had a couples massage here, and it was great! My husbands masseuse even spent time after the massage helping him learn stretches to ease his sciatic nerve issues. Both masseuses were obviously well trained and knew what they were doing. The spa itself had a nice ambiance and relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely be going back!:)
