After a long flight from the East Coast, I booked a massage at the Vista Blue Spa. Two words...Peter Kimmish! Great massage therapist and if you go..he's your guy! I recommend him highly!

You will not be sorry! Best treatment ever. About two years ago, I received my service from Felipa and have been daydreaming about coming back. It was that fabulous. I finally made it back, but Felipa was not available at the time I wanted to come in. I was a little nervous that I would be disappointed with a different therapist, but lo and behold, Suzanne was fabulous too! Nothing else compares to the services I've had here. Book it now and plan to spend some extra time before/after your service in the sauna, hot tub, gym, etc. HEAVEN!!!

I had a facial with Fran at Vista Blue Spa and she was fantastic. I was a little nervous to get a facial since I've had bad luck with facialsts in the past and have somewhat problematic skin (sensitive and breaks out easily). I was really impressed with Fran! She is super knowledgable and completely transformed my skin. She recommended products to use at home as well (Natropathica, EmerginC, Epicuren) and my skin is doing much better now! The products are high quality (lots of organic ingredients and good for sensitive skin) and I found the price point totally reasonable. Thank you, Fran!

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary so hubby and I treated ourselves to the Rendezvous Retreat package at the spa. I am a frequent spa-goer and can say that Vista Blue staff are top notch! We each had a facial...mine was so relaxing I fell asleep during it. Hubby loved the gentle men's facial too. The couples massage was also excellent. Prior to our treatments we used the eucalyptus steam room and spent some time in the sun on the outdoor deck where the whirlpools were located. Awesome atmosphere and professional staff made it an ultimate spa afternoon . I highly recommend the Vista Blue Spa.

The spa is on the top floor of the the Monterey Plaza Hotel. Steam room and two hot tubs are located on the protected sun deck overlooking the ocean. It is lovely to have lunch served up there next to the fireplace. Inside there is a small workout room, sauna, dressing/shower rooms, all of the treatment rooms. The staff is lovely. You truly feel pampered the moment Martha greets you
