Staff so attentive that they had chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us at the end of our couples massage.

“Should be called a Health club”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

First, I want to say the historic Vinoy Hotel, located in a great location, is quite beautiful with some modern amenities.....which most definitely does not include the Spa. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was very disappointed. The Spa should be called a Health Club with 2 small treatment rooms. The antiquated locker room where you change into a robe was small and crowded with lockers on top of one another. The small lounge area, open to the locker room, housed the hot tub. The room lacked ambience without any natural sun light. The 15 minutes that I was there waiting for the masseuse two older ladies were chatting non- stop in the hot tub naked, and lots of commotion in the locker room. It was not a relaxing experience. Also, while having the massage, you could hear conversations outside the treatment room. All in all, it was not a very relaxing or rejuvenating experience. That being said, I gave it a 2 star rating because the staff was courteous and the masseuse was excellent.

“Not a Spa”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

We were guests at the Day Spa at the Vinoy, but we were not guests at the hotel, so this review only refers to the Spa. Given the reputation of the hotel as one of the best in St. Pete, we had high hopes for the spa, but were quite disappointed, especially given the price. It isn't so much a "spa" as a salon that offers massage, which was disappointing since we had booked what we hoped would be a romantic couples massage. The spa and massage area had no atmosphere and no services (not even a shower for after!), and the massage itself was only mediocre. However, by reserving a couples massage we were allowed to use the Vinoy's lovely pool for the afternoon --- which was great and lead us to rank it a 5-out-of-10 overall (IF you can use the pool for the afternoon afterwards). The pool has a view over the harbor, a waterfall, and nice shower facilities too; very relaxing! It would be easy for the Vinoy to up their spa ante with a little effort, and given their great location and historic character, I certainly hope they will.
