There is no better time to indulge in a massage therapy session than when you are relaxed, with nowhere to be and nothing to do. Your Playa Grande vacation wouldn’t be the same without one of the spa’s amazing massages.

Arelys Gomez took over the spa in 2014 after working for Frijoles Locos for a number of years. Now, independent and motivated to succeed, you can still be sure of a fantastic experience.

Whether you love a good, strong deep tissue/ sports massage, a relaxation massage, or something in-between… you can find what you are looking for at “El Frijol Feliz Day Spa” here in Playa Grande.

Whichever way you choose to unwind, the friendly professional therapists at El Frijol Feliz Day Spa are waiting to help you.

Frijoles Locos Playa Grande Surf Shop Reviews

Frijol Feliz Day Spa

I received a deep tissue massage at the Frijol Feliz Day Spa located at the Frijoles Locos Surf shop in Playa Grande a week ago and it was excellent. What a great way to enhance a great vacation. Corynne and her staff were very professional and the massage was so relaxing, I think I probably scared the therapist with my snorts as I drifted in and out of sleep. I would certainly recommend it to everyone! I was in a dazed state of bliss for the rest of the day!
