We are staying at Villa Del Palmar flamingos with the All-Inclusive package and were pleasantly surprised to find out all members of our party had one day access to the wet areas of the spa. My mother and I received two complimentary Swedish massages upon check in and were very excited. You have to book a reservation in advance but they are very accommodating with the schedule.
We arrived, signed forms to inform/explain any medical issues and were welcomed by Gabriela, our valet. She provided our locker keys and offered drinks of hot tea, chlorophyll water, or iced hibiscus tea. The locker contained a towel, robe, and a plastic bag for wet swimsuits. Swimsuits are mandatory when using the wet areas.
She also explained that we had freedom to use the wet areas (sauna, steam, cold plunge pool, hydrotherapy pool, waterfall shower, pressure shower, and loungers). But our massage therapists were ready so we went ahead without doing so. Nubia was my therapist and my mother had Rosa. Nubia was very kind and soothing. She explained what a Swedish massage entailed and asked if there was any area that she should pay attention to and I told her my lower back was giving me problems. During the massage, she worked on two knots in my lower back and I immediately felt looser. Miracle hands haha. She also found knots in my neck and shoulders I didn't even know I had and worked them out. There were great smells of essential oils throughout and I easily fell asleep eventually. Nubia ended the session and gave me a warm cup of hibiscus tea and suggested I do the hydrotherapy circuit in the wet areas. We loved our experience so much that we purchased a facial for later in the afternoon.
It began similarly except now my mother and I were able to do the hydrotherapy circuit in the wet areas. Gabriela was very attentive and as soon as we finished with the pools, she brought heated neck pillow and cucumbers for our eyes along with a cold towel for our faces while we waitedto be called for our facials. The cold plunge pool was refreshing and enjoyed the sauna. I had Maralinda as a facialist. She took the time to show me all of the products she was going to use and explained what it was and let me smell them. She asked how I was enjoying myself every few minutes and the facial also included a neck, chest, arms, and head massage so those areas got a second massage for the day which is more than fine by me. Afterwards, she offered a 3 piece regimen of cleanser, mask, and moisturizer for purchase but I declined as I work for a skincare company and get a lot of product. But looking at the ingredients, the products she offered and used are first class.
Amazing experience. I don't usually go to the spas when I stay in resorts as I find them expensive but thanks to the complimentary massage and then the facials we purchased, I am much more open to trying as Tatewari showed it was worth it!
