The massage therapists were anything but friendly. My partner and I booked 2 massages. The guy who we booked it with said it couldn't be at the exact same time so we booked one at 2 and one at 2:30. Later they got mad when we didn't arrive at the same time. The guy who we booked it with wasn't... More

Firstly we have to apologize the misunderstood with the time of the appointment, the manager did your booking at 2:00 p.m. for the two of you. You should be more comprehensive with the people that don't speak a perfect english but has the attitude and desire... More

The price was attractive although there are other places that offer a similar price. I chose this spa as it was close to where I was staying, but the service was somewhat impersonal, and the reflexology that I was so looking forward to was very disappointing. Contrary to some other reviews, the massage was too soft and I came out... More

Hi thank you for your comments. I would like to know which day did you get the service? could you describe the person who did a massage. Was she a curly hair lady? I will appreciate if you give me more information to improve our service. More

My partner and I went for a deep tissue massage and the ladies didn't mess around. There's some points where you'll be saying 'mass suave por favor'. But we both felt good after. If you want something more relaxing maybe look elsewhere, as it's slightly impersonal, but for a deep tissue assault after a long bus ride, it was just... More

I got a couple of waxes at El Reposo and I would definitely recommend them. The staff were friendly and professional and they did an excellent job. You without a doubt get value for money.

This is a great, comfortable spa. I got a facial, which was amazing! My skin was so smooth afterwards. The staff was also very helpful. If you're into organic stuff or looking for a place to relax then you should def visit.

First of all the price quoted on the phone was not the same price when we got there so that was disappointing. It was very hot in there and they kept the door open during the massage so I felt like the whole world could see me laying there naked! The massage had very fast and rough strokes with a... More

This is my first visit to Guatemala and i will definitely be back! Just as long as this spa is around!!! The ladies here are very friendly and warming. They just know what to do. They ask you if you are comfortable and relaxed and they are wonderful. I definitely recommend this spa for all your needs!!

Went because the massage was cheaoer. Not a good choice. Not very clean. My room had a poor smelling toilet in it. Massage was below average-- lots of slapping.
