While at an all-inclusive resort, have you found booking for a spa treatment difficult to obtain on your schedule?

Hi Kimberly,

Not usually. Here is a great idea to make sure you get the slot and treatment you want.

Contact the resort you have booked and ask if there are any spa treatments that warrant making a reservation prior to your arrival. That step will ensure you are not disappointed due to massive bookings during the Spa open hours.

You would not want to miss a chance to treat a sunburn at Beaches resort Redlane Spa with the Fluffy Bunny Lavender Mint Julep Shea Butter Moisturizer or the Scents of Love Couples Massage.

Sandals Redlane Spa even offers Happy Hour Manicure and Happy Hour Pedicure.

Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun is wildly popular. They have 19 treatment suites, 4 master suites with hydrotherapy tubs, 3 indoor couples suites, 10 multifunctional suites, one Golden suite and one Vichy suite.

Le Blanc is a perfect example of making reservations before you arrive. The goal to relax and rejuvenate is shared by many travelers.

Heads up! Many spas at all inclusive resorts require guests be 18 and older to visit their spa.

If you're headed to Mexico I also recommend Grand Velas Puerto Vallarta (they even have a kids spa), Secrets Maroma, Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Secrets Playa Mujeres and Secrets Vallarta Bay with their 14,000 square foot Spa by Pevonia.

The 2nd best move is to make spa reservations the day you arrive.

Have fun!

Hi Kimberly,

While *most* resorts will not let you book a Spa appointment before you check-in (due to the fact that when people cancel their trips they rarely remember to cancel any appointments or reservations they've made in advance), it can't hurt to call and ask IF a specific date/time is very important to you, for example if you're celebrating something special and have a dinner or event setup already for which you want to look (and feel!) your best. :-)

If they won't allow it, then as Dan advises, be sure to book your spa treatments as soon as possible after you've checked in......generally speaking you'll be able to get an appointment if you're flexible, especially if you like a morning appointment since afternoons are usually more popular with guests and spas can be quite busy later in the day.

Good luck - I hope you have a wonderful Spa experience!
