WE went for a couples massage today. When we arrived we were escorted into the locker room with no amenities. Out of order signs on the steam shower full of mold and from what appears to be 1970. No slippers . A gentlemen asked the woman at the desk if he was supposed to walk barefoot and she said yes... More

I was not rushed even though I was the last appointment of the day. Highly recommend Gabriel. The Four Rating reflects the spa itself as it is adequate... More

I ended my stay at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar with a massage at Mandara Spa. The spa looks a bit dated but I wasn't put off by that as it smells delightful upon entering the changing area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The reason I'm giving a 3* is that my masseuse seemed rushed. The massage was... More

We came back to the Mandara Spa a couple of weeks after having stayed at Rio Mar this past summer during which we had a bad situation with an appointment we had at the Spa. We were given a complimentary couples massage to compensate for the situation and since we live in Puerto Rico, we were able to take advantage... More

Charging $130 plus tax plus tip = $158 for a Swedish massage. Ok, it's in a resort hotel, but the place is bruised and not kept up. A paint job would do wonders for this place. Locker area was never replenished. Toilets kept running and didn't always have toilet paper in the stalls. Showers were moldy and water never got... More

My husband arrived to the resort with a terrible backache. He called the resort as soon as they opened in the morning and they got him right in. He love his massage and felt much better afterwards, which allowed him to enjoy the rest of our vacation

this spa offers the usual amenities expected at a luxury spa, with attentive staff and professional, friendly and expert massage therapies. There is a well-equiped gym (cardio machines and free weights) The spa is nicely maintained with a reasonable price point. I didn't have a chance to see if there was a dry sauna on site.

Spouse had a Bali massage which was one of their signature massages and spoke highly of it. They were offering it at a discounted price as a special.

This is an expensive spa option, and I'm saying this coming from NYC where there are plenty of expensive spa options. But my friend and I were determined to have massages before heading back to the big apple, so expensive or not, we went ahead and booked a Balinese and a Swedish massage. The massages were great - no complaints.... More

Had a fill, they do all the work by hand so it takes much longer that you may be used to, but a nice job although a bit expensive
