“Pleasant service, had better massages”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

We received ten-minute massages with our hotel package. We didn't expect much, so we weren't disappointed. The islanders are friendly! The skill level just wasn't there.

“If you've never been, you should go! Great Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

I recently traveled to the island and was looking around for a place to relax and get my hair done. I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Island Breeze and get an appointment with Lourdes who did a fantastic job on my hair! I have always been a little reserved at getting too much done but she was fantastic and up to date on the current styles. After color, cut and blow dry she offered to style my hair to show off my new do (which I absolutely love)! Everyone was very friendly making me feel more than welcome anytime. After I had my hair done my husband surprised me with a couples massage at the spa's beach location. Hands down most relaxing and romantic time! I will definitely be returning the next time I find myself on the island as well as recommending my friends and family take advantage of these amazing and great priced services in this little resort town!

“Didn't Get What I Paid For”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

I asked for the Catalina Sampler massage and didn't get it. I was never asked if there was any part of my body that they should concentrate on. I did mention in the beginning that my lower back is generally tight, but the lady chose to concentrate on my tight shoulders for the whole time (even though I never requested that). The Catalina Sample includes 3 different massage techniques, including the use of hot stones (which I was looking forward to). I only received one type of massage (not including the stones) before she told me my time was up The massage was supposed to last 50 minutes, but it started late and ended early cutting off 10 minutes of times. I can always gets a basic massage on my shoulders - I specifically requested the Catalina Sampler so i could experience something different. I come to Catalina every summer and will not be going back and I will never recommend this salon!

I highly recommend everyone to get a massage from the Island breeze! My husband and I had a couples massage here. His first time getting a massage. We were very impressed! They were sooo wonderful, professional and friendly. Matilda and Lordes are the two ladies that gave us our massages. And they were amazing!!!! We truly enjoyed it and we will definetly come back.
