The only reason that someone would go to a spa is for the ambiance and this place totally lacked it. The massage is always good so you can't really rate a spa based on the massage alone. We read about this spa in Lonely planet quide and booked the couples starlight massage. It was totally NOT worth it for $170US + tips.
The house is on a very busy street (opposite Ramons village resort) and is a main throughfare is the city. The spa itself is very nice with a zen garden feel and neat and clean and that is where they have the 2 massage tables setup for couples. The minute we arrived there, we knew that there was no way that we could get a massage in that space since this area is located in the front of the house, facing the street with only a door to close off the street noise. The manager told us that when the doors to the garden are close and the music is loud, then the street noise does not bother anyone. We tried that but it was not a santuary by any means. I am not sure what the other couple are talking about but DONT NOT go there to have a relaxing massage since its a total rip off. Also, who wants loud music to drown the street noise.
We finally got a massage in different rooms inside where the street noise was a bit less since its indoors but 1 of the wall of the rooms are abutting the street and I heard trucks and dogs barking while I was being massages... not a very tranquil place. The massage itself, I would rate a 3 out of 5. Other than that, this place is a total rip off and I would NEVER recommend anyone to go there esp. couples for a romantic massage.
I am not sure if when Lonely planet guide reviewed this place, the street was not very busy. they are also the oldest spa in the island so I guess people have heard of them. I kept asking if they had just relocated coz I couldnt beleive that other reviewers would recommend this place. They have always been at the same location.
Also, when someone says the "Sunset" massage, I was thinking that were might be a view of the sunset. No, there is absolutely no view and its in an enclosed space. I would recommend that you pay the extra $20 or so to get a massage by the beach.
