My husband and I booked massages via the message board on the door. They called our hotel to set up the details. The site is a charming little compound of small buildings leading out to the water. There is a gorgeous deck with comfortable chairs and hammocks where we took turns waiting while the other recicved treatment. Our massages were... More

My daughter and I had an amazing deep tissue massage with Maria and Bianca. They made us feel so comfortable and renewed. Their quick response after I left a note was perfect and they were able to do both massages at the same time. If I'm ever back in Bocos, I'll definitely return. Well worth the cost!

While I did not have the opportunity to go get my treatments there because they were booked at the time, I did walk to the premises and it looked very nice. They are also very responsive.

Donna's price for the wax was very reasonable compared to Toronto and she did a fantastic job. Her technique was prefect and she got the most hair than any other Brazilian I've had.

I wanted to get a massage on a rainy day and investigated several places. Timing worked out to see Bianca and Lil Spa by the Sea. She was AMAZING. I get regular massage back home and so am a discerning customer. Her technique was excellent- relaxing, firm, and skilled. She used deep tissue massage, range of motion for my joints,... More

Now, I understand the difference between rain and showers, specially when you talk about weather reports! It was pouringgggg. So I decided to go for a massage at Lil's. You can leave a message on a board at the door or contact Bianca by whatsapp. She answered right away and we arrange an appointment. Quiet place, nice music, Bianca is... More

This is a great place to go if you want to relax and get a great therapeutic massage. It is located right on the waters edge in Bocas Town.

I had Maria as a masseuse as Donna was out of town. She was great, perfect pressure and I was very comfortable. The location is very nice also. Highly recommend!

Unfortunately I was not able to make my available times work with Donna's appointment schedule - it was the beginning of Carnival and she had left the island for a short holiday. However, I wanted people to know that if writing your name and contact information on the door to schedule an appointment doesn't fit your comfort level, Donna is... More

The lil' spa shop by the sea is not only a great place to stop in and get a massage, but also a great place to stay while in Bocas Town! Donna is an excellent host and makes you feel right at home. The shop has three little cabins in the back - all of which are so charming and... More
