    If you park outside you can pick up guys, clients fro the spa, vendors, tambays , gym hunks from nearby gym, fellow drivers. Once you do it in the shower bring the guys to you card and drive off. Try your luck.

Chupaan sa car after. Pero may mga chubby, matatnda at panget kaya iwas na lang sa kanila. Lol. Adolfo, Bernard, ROLLY at datz mga masseur. Walang female dito. All male at pamhinta spa to.

    I was going to try it the other night and it so happen that all the lady therapist were not available that they were on leave.
    will go there to try it by next month.
    I think the owner notices that I m a new customer.
    that’s all for now.

    I’ve been going to Spa Manoli since 2011. It’s a good alternative to other spas like Amistad or Wensha especially if you want a no-frills, wholesome, and quality massage. It’s value for money especially the an hour and a half massage that costs 430 pesos with access to the shower and locker area.

    I was adamant to share this but I can’t help but relay the experience just to let it out.

    I’ve been tolerant of the owner/receptionist since I started going to Manoli. The thing is sakyan mo lang ang ugali niya, his jokes and subtle sarcasm and just simply thrown out of the window, and then you’re made. I simply enjoy the massage and do not mind him because in truth, the massage here is good and as I mentioned, value for money.

    I became a little “chummy” with the owner during my waiting periods (30 minutes to an hour the most). Chummy in a sense that I’d chat him up, ask a few questions about the spa, the masseurs, the services, etc. I can see that he is hands on in his business.

    But what I am puzzled is this one thing, this thing that contradicts his intentions of putting up a wholesome and quality spa.

    It’s his being touchy. Too touchy that it’s scary already. At first I didn’t mind the hagod on my back each time I’d leave the spa. He is probably just very grateful for my loyalty to his spa. The hagod happened several times. It was fine, a bit awkward actually. In business, you should not touch your clients in a way that would make them uncomfortable. Rule of the thumb is to be at arm’s length even if you are grateful or should I say “excited.”

    I’m this is my last because the last visit was already out of hand; well according to my definition of “too much.” The term sexual harassment especially when coming from the voice of a victim is difficult to narrate in detail for so many reasons. But let’s just say that that the touching had something to do with grabbing and pressing.

    He probably just got excited, too comfortable perhaps? Or couldn’t stop himself because well he is just like that. But his action was something I got concerned about: it was beyond normal.

    I’ve been asking myself why I should post this. Some people might consider me as one of those naysayers for my negative comments. As I was reading some of the comments here, I was torn between affirming the accusations and defending the owner. Some were over the top, some were half truth, most were lies. But the common denominator was the owner’s actions and it was something that should be addressed once and for all.

    I’d say he should not put his spa to waste. That he should stop being “too touchy,” “too excited,” “too comfortable” or “too much of himself.” What happened to me had happened before albeit not as “creepy” because those were limited to intense stare, an attempt to make a small talk, or a bit of stalking. Am I speaking in tongues? You can’t blame me. This is coming from someone who just went to something err traumatic.

    I hope he reads this. And that he stops whatever he is doing. I know, I know, other people would say, where is your evidence? How could you say that, it didn’t happen to us when we were ther?

    My answer is that a target is chosen not in random. He picks them by impulse and intuition, and an action beyond normal is kept a secret by the one who does it. The “victim,” on the other hand, is either silenced or becomes ballistic (or exaggerates to tell everyone that he’s a victim). But I chose neither. I just want to tell the truth.

    Hi! I tried Spa Manoli last week; I wasn’t able to get the name of the masseur, Manolo was able to mention to me my masseur’s name but I still forgot it. The massage was SUPERB! The ambience is clean and relaxing. The locker area and the open shower are far from being dirty and stinky. I like the walls being black. It’s just not a place for those who need privacy because the massage beds were only separated by curtains. Well, one wouldn’t notice because the massage is good enough to make you forget that you not sneak-proof in your boldness. I was placed nearest to the window (or to the wall facing the street), so I can hear the cars passing by. It is really quiet inside, so it’s really relaxing. Maybe Manolo can do something about that spot. In the open shower, the toilet is situated in the middle. I just find it a bit off to poo-poo in the middle of strangers taking shower. But they have private toilets naman kasi I used one as soon as I got in the spa since pang-North Pole yung AC sa taxi na nasakyan ko papuntang Spa Manoli. Overall, the experience was excellent. It’s worth your money!

    The thing is…hindi majustify ng mga bad comments dito ang number of waiting sa reception palang ng Spa Manoli…madami galit kay Manolo dito because honestly he isn’t the usual receptionist who’d say what you want to hear and do what you want him to do…massage magaling…place makakapahinga ka…unique in many ways…recommendable…hindi nakakahiyang maglabas pasok sa spa na to…unlike sa iba sa pali paligid nya. Kung spa goer ka talaga within the area…magdidistinguish mo yung difference nya sa ibang Spa…aprove!!!

      Totoo pala ang bad reviews sa Spa Manoli, nagtry po ako pumunta sa kanila …
      1. tungkol sa owner na naninilip at mahilig umirap, pero kapag ngumiti, alam mong plastik
      2. maingay po sa place nila
      3. madumi CR
      4. malagkit yung oil, ayaw matanggal sa katawan ko kahit ilang paligo
      5. nagka stiff neck ako sa kama nila, wala kasing butas, yung unan naman amoy laway
      6. konti lang therapists nila, hindi pa magaling
      Definitely my last time

    Ito na ang pinakakomprehensibong tip sa mga hindi pa nakakapunta sa Spa Manoli at sa mga nakapunta na:

    1. Walang ibang sasalubong sayo kundi si Manolo. Dahil wala na syang iba pang tao dun maliban sa mga masahista nya at sya lang.
    2. Ipapaliwanag nya sayong lahat ang kailangan mo at papaalalahanan ka nya sa mga dapat at hindi dapat mong gawin habang nasa loob ka ng Spa nya.
    3. Ito sigurado bantay sarado sya sa lahat ng nasa taas simula sa pagdating, habang minamasahe at sa lahat ng gagawin mo bago ka umalis sa spa.
    4. Sa lahat ng gustong lumandi parang sa Wensha lang shower nila, “OPEN” swerte ka kung ang mga kasabayan mo ay mga yummy. Kung hindi naman malas mo lang.
    5. Swerte kung hindi ka mahuli ni Manolo habang gumagawa ng kababalaghan sa CR ng Spa. Pero “madalas huhulihin ka nya sa aktong may ginaawa kana para mapahiya ka.” Malas mo lang dahil,may malaking pag-asang hindi ka na makapasok sa susunod na bumalik ka at matandaan ka nya.
    6. Magaling ang masahe nila…dun wala akong masabi…mamili ka na lang kung sino gusto mong balikbalikan.
    7. Wala silang extra, wag ka na umasa, hagod sarap lang tapos usapan.
    8. Tsaka na yung iba tinatamad na ko magtype.

    He! He! He! Kala ko kaming kapitbahay lang ni Manolo kaaway niya. Dami pa pala talaga! Kasi dito sa lugar namin kilala yan na walang kasundo. Matapobre yan at naka-irap parati. Kulang kasi yata sa lalake parang matandang dalaga kasi. Dami na nakaaway dito niyan. Kasi walang ginawa kundi pakabig sa kanya. Yung spa niya walang taga dito sa amin nagpupunta kasi kaaway nya nga.
    Pero may mga pumupuri sa kanya pakonti konti dito. Yun nga lang konti lang naloloko niya. Kasi kapag nakilala na siya, yun na, di na babalik sa SPA MANOLA OLAH CHIKKA nya!

    natawa na lang ako sa matandang ito, pagpasok ko palang sya bumungad sa akin nako nakasimangot pero kung makatingin napakalagkit. ayun na when I was in shower room naramdaman ko parang may tao sa likod ko pag tingin ko hala ayun na ang manolofag labas labas dila pa ang siraulo…. sobrang kinabahan ako sa kanya sinenyasan ko na ndi at sinamahan ko ng masamang tingin… lumayas din sa wakas…dali dali akong nagtowel and pumunta na sa massage room sorbrang natakot ako sa matandang ito cubicles at salita ng salita nagpaparinig ata after ng massage i left agad. very traumatic experience ko dito he is a predator.. a faggot..

    I witnessed and experienced myself how arrogant Manolo is. Sobrang intimidating niya at assuming. THERE’s NO REASON LEFT FOR ME TO GO BACK TO SPA MANOLI… their massage is so so, and Manolo is so unpleasant.
    Sinisiran pa nya mga competitors nya. Bad business kapag ganyan ka Manolo.
    Tsk tsk tsk.

    Mr. Manoli, can you do something about my problem. I had a bad massage from your staff last September 1 at around 8pm. I cannot remember the name of the therapist.
    I think he fractured my lower back because he pressed it so hardly and quickly. I’ve consulted a ortho and advised me to wear a brace and attend a theraphy.
    Are your therapists properly trained? If yes, where?
    I am just afraid that some of your other customers might have the same problem as me.

    The thing is when you get there, you’ll be served their way. This conversation boils down to ” It’s your choice.” If you aren’t satisfied, then…GET LOST!” Ang mga haters lalong sasama ang loob. Why? Because they have business and they’re nailing it. I’m regular client and yes they have limited therapists but they’re the best.

    Kawawa naman ang mga haters, you know why? Because you’re giving spa manoli business. They’re getting more curious clients who’d like to try their services. And whom does it benefit…Manolo. So, if I were you… be responsible on what you’re writing because these might be used againsts you and to the owner of this site.

    Hi Spa Manoli!

    Is it true that you only have 2 male therapists? What happen po sa ibang therapists?

    Mabilis masyado po yata umaalis ang mga therapists sa inyo. Kasi nun last time po ako bumalik, wala na rin yung dating nagmassage sa akin.

    Paano kung marami kayong customers, di pila po sila dahil dalawa lang therapists ninyo?

    Pwede rin po bang irequest na palitan nyo po ang receptionist ninyo…yung matanda na baklang maputi. Kasi medyo nakaka intimidate po sya. Hwag po sana kayong magalit. Uneasy lang po kasi me kapag sya kaharap ko

    i agree with you GuyNxtDor. kahit okey ung masahe hinding hindi na ako babalik dahil sa masamang ugali at panghihipo ni manolo.. un din sinasabi ko sa friends ko

    Perry
    He! He! He! Kala ko kaming kapitbahay lang ni Manolo kaaway niya. Dami pa pala talaga! Kasi dito sa lugar namin kilala yan na walang kasundo. Matapobre yan at naka-irap parati. Kulang kasi yata sa lalake parang matandang dalaga kasi. Dami na nakaaway dito niyan. Kasi walang ginawa kundi pakabig sa kanya. Yung spa niya walang taga dito sa amin nagpupunta kasi kaaway nya nga.
    Pero may mga pumupuri sa kanya pakonti konti dito. Yun nga lang konti lang naloloko niya. Kasi kapag nakilala na siya, yun na, di na babalik sa SPA MANOLA OLAH CHIKKA nya!

    natawa na lang ako sa matandang ito, pagpasok ko palang sya bumungad sa akin nako nakasimangot pero kung makatingin napakalagkit. ayun na when I was in shower room naramdaman ko parang may tao sa likod ko pag tingin ko hala ayun na ang manolofag labas labas dila pa ang siraulo…. sobrang kinabahan ako sa kanya sinenyasan ko na ndi at sinamahan ko ng masamang tingin… lumayas din sa wakas…dali dali akong nagtowel and pumunta na sa massage room sorbrang natakot ako sa matandang ito cubicles at salita ng salita nagpaparinig ata after ng massage i left agad. very traumatic experience ko dito he is a predator.. a faggot..

    I witnessed and experienced myself how arrogant Manolo is. Sobrang intimidating niya at assuming. THERE’s NO REASON LEFT FOR ME TO GO BACK TO SPA MANOLI… their massage is so so, and Manolo is so unpleasant.
    Sinisiran pa nya mga competitors nya. Bad business kapag ganyan ka Manolo.
    Tsk tsk tsk.

    Bernie
    Mr. Manoli, can you do something about my problem. I had a bad massage from your staff last September 1 at around 8pm. I cannot remember the name of the therapist.
    I think he fractured my lower back because he pressed it so hardly and quickly. I’ve consulted a ortho and advised me to wear a brace and attend a theraphy.
    Are your therapists properly trained? If yes, where?
    I am just afraid that some of your other customers might have the same problem as me.

    Oh God— i still can’t understand these rumors n nanghihipo c manolo—- kung matino kang owner ng Spa, would you risk your business by doing all these? ilang buwan n itong discussion ang panghihipo and until now may nagki-claim p rin???? common sense, kung ikaw ang owner ng spa at alam mo balitang-balita ito, e di dapat nagstop kn. imposible naman n hindi magstop c manolo e inaakusahan n xa. kahit sinong tao n may hiya, hihinto n s pinagggwa.. but these claims of panghihipo don;t end… come to think of it? walang hiya b si manolo para hindi huminto or these are just baseless accusations at all? god, i cant imagine, ikaw may-ari punta k ng shower area at manghipo ng customer mo? sus! di naman tama at walang tao s ganyang katinuan ang gagawa nyan esp kung ikaw ang may-ari———- very persistent haters, back off!

    INTRODUCTION

    It is surely indeed that people now a day are so much into massage and spa and this is widely evidence by various spa and massage establishments that you can see not only here in the metro but as well as around the globe. There are several reasons why people go this massage/spa house most especially to find relaxation at its peak. Every massage/spa house offer their very own signature massage in their most unique and special way. Out of the numerous numbers of massage/spa establishments, only few have outshined the others; offering a one-of-a-kind massage that will surely make you crave and ask for more. A massage that will surely give not maybe the best but the most superb massage experienced ever.

    Let me share you one of my experience and I hope you enjoy reading it. Again, this is based on my own opinion and never the less my opinion.

    THE SPA

    An oasis in the middle of the desert?

    Naah, that would be a big joke but not until I get to experience the Spa Manoli massage. Spa Manoli is located in 141 Scout Gandia St., corner Scout Ybardolaza, Barangay Sacred Heart, Quezon City. The Spa is open from 5:00 pm to 02:00 am every Mondays thru Sundays but close every Wednesday (there is a valid reason why some of the massage/spa house is closed every Wednesday and I have no right to disclose it here). They do have male and female masseur that can give you the service. They do have the shower, wet floor, locker and even parking space. The price of the massage starts at Php 300.00 for a 1 hour massage.

    FIRST IMPRESSION/s

    “What am I doing here?”
    That was the thing running inside my mind the first time I went to Spa Manoli way back a couple of months ago. I was really shy to try it at all but I have no choice. I can’t back-up now. I’m standing in Scout Gandai corner Scout Ybardoloza while looking at the massage/spa house with a big signage of Spa Manoli with a black bamboo theme on it with the lightning signal of OPEN.

    I’m walking towards the entrance but still hesitance whether to go or not to. But then again I decided to go for it and give it a try so I press the door bell and wait. After a few seconds, I see someone getting nearby the gate and slowly stare at me through the little hole in the gate and suddenly the door opens an a man welcome me and say “Hi, welcome to Spa Manoli” with a very simple but warm welcoming smile. And so I enter the spa.

    You can see a couple of black mono blocked chairs on the side and you can hear water flowing in a little pond located on the corner of the passage way with going through the main entrance of the house. The ambiance is very relaxing and it gives me the guts to continue having my massage.

    OWNER/RECEPTIONIST

    It was the owner of the massage/spa house who opened the door for me and guided me in the receiving area. He then introduced himself as the owner of the massage/spa house in the name Manolo, as what other people try to call him. He is nothing but an ordinary man at all; not big and not even too thin. He stands around 5’5” to 5’6” weighing about 130 lbs perhaps with white complexion and a little tiny voice with little brown eyes. He is wearing a black spandex shirt and a black jogging pant. He then brief me with the services that the massage/spa house offers. He also did brief me about the simple rules and regulations of the spa and he noted that they do not strictly offer Extra Service as part of their routine in the massage but instead a clean massage. He then asked me if I want anything to drink, perhaps coffee or tea or even water but I said thank you for the kind offer but it’s not necessary at all.

    After some conversation, I finally decided to have my massage for 1 hour. He then pulled out this paper form where he wrote my name. He then asked me the following things:

    1st : What Oil to use? You are given a chance to choose from the 3 options they have namely Ocean Breeze, _______, and the ever famous Black Bamboo. Manolo will give you the option to feel the intense of every oil by smelling it. It is placed in the reception area and installed in this cute white wine bottle covered by a black marble stone.

    2nd: What massage are you gonna avail? 1 hour? 1.5 hour? Or other packages that they offer.

    3rd: What kind of massage? Hard, Moderate or soft?
    4th: Do you prefer any masseur? (if you already did visit the spa before; if it is your first time well he will surely give you a masseur that will surely fit on your massage criteria)
    5th: If ok with strerching, hagod, etc.

    And it’s all settled, after answering all the question, he then gave me a pair of slippers in exchanged of my shoes and a pair of key and a white towel and a black cloth. (The smell of the towel and cloth is good and you will even noticed that is clean and new.)

    He then asked me to get ready for he will assists me going upstairs at the 2nd floor where the locker room and the massage area is located and so I said I’m ready.

    INTERIOR/CONCEPT

    Sounds funny and ridiculous but its true! It’s a Black Bamboo Theme and it really nailed it. The interior of the massage/spa house is very relaxing that will surely entice your body at its peak. It will surely give you this relaxing and very calming ambiance and even the decorations and other interior of the place.

    At the entrance, you will notice this pond of fish with flowing water. A little marble elephant with some Chinese ornaments on the side tables of the black sofa set. A shoe rack located on the corner most side of the receiving area.

    Just before you enter the massage room, you have to go through these cute shell-liked ornaments before approaching the stares and upon opening the door you will hear a very calming and relaxing background music playing around the room that will give you the closed-eyes experienced.

    At the locker room, a long open chair is located at the middle of the room with the lockers on the side. A rack for the towels/shirt with hanger is located just beside the door. A big mirror is hanging on the left side of room and a basin on the outer most left side of the room just before the shower room. They have this bed hanging (that they usually use when you avail of the scrub package/treatment), 3 showers (2 hot and 1 cold) paired with this very sweet tropical scent shower gel and a bowl.

    The massage room is composed of almost 6 cubicles (on the male room since the massage room for the female clients is located on the other side). A black sheet of flowing curtains separates each cubicle but you don’t have to worry coz the space is very comfortable enough to enjoy the massage and be relaxed. A flowing fan and aircon are always open to give you more of this relaxing feeling as if you are ready to fly and feel the clouds above.

    MASSEUR

    They have both female and male therapist that will give you the service. Every masseur has its very unique way of delivering their service with passion on it so you don’t have to worry at all. But sooner you’ve been used to all of them, still there is one that will outshined the others and that’s for you to decide. Face value perhaps, not really used to notice it but they look okay and normal people. Some are small like around 5’5” and some of them are like the fit body type. They have their uniform that will not be a hindrance during the massage.

    MASSAGE

    At last, the massage part.

    Lying on your back barely naked with this a piece of black thin sheet of cloth that will cover you all throughout the massage while a very calming instrumental music is playing around gives you the superb relaxing experience right even before the start of the massage. Then it all begins, starting at the back with this pressured coming on your back and slowly giving you the sleepy mode. Going down to your legs with a very unique and somewhat sensual (though it may not be the one you are expecting) style of massage towards the other part of your leg and then heading back to your back while having and feeling the new style of massage using the thumbs, hands, elbow and even the whole arms and including the whole body.

    A little circus is the best way to describe the massage experience with the components of the whole body of the masseur as part of the massage. From back massage going to front massage and the stretching part that will surely twist that old bones and give it a hot.

    It’s just very funny coz’ I usually have this ceremonial most of the time that my masseur will give me a massage coz’I have very weak sensual body parts that keeps me up for good. Especially THAT PART of my body ahahahahah :D
    The massage will be very worth it and very relaxing that you will ask for more. A little style will be place on your every massage that will make you not only giggle but mingle and jingle in some parts of it. A drop-dead massage that will make last until the very next time that you will have your massage.

    VERDICT

    An oasis in the middle of the desert?

    Well it surely did and I will go travel the desert just to be in the oasis again to feel the relaxation and the experience that Spa Manoli offers. You can try other massage/spa house perhaps but one thing is for sure, once you tried Manoli, I bet, you’ll be coming back for more.

      MY REACTION TO WONS’ message –
      After reading Wons’ message, I bet that all of you will have the same question as mine : “WHAT IS THIS??? A WRITE-UP COMMISSIONED BY THE OWNER OF SPA MANOLI????”

      Wons’ message is nothing but a flowery write-up obviously intended for a brochure or perhaps the article for full-page ad in a lifestyle page. It’s literally and figuratively an OVER EXAGGERATION of words to market a place as poorly and untastefully designed as Spa Manoli.

      Wons enumerated the decors like a little marble elephant, chinese ornaments, a black sofa, black monoblock chairs, cute shell-like ornaments and he goes “It’s a Black Bamboo Theme and it really nailed it.”

      This is ridiculous as I could not see any theme but a hasty mixing and mismatching of probably whatever the interior designer (if there is one) could grab from a garage sale at a nearby street. Where’s the black bamboo theme and how is that related to a little marble elephant, or much less to a black sofa? IN THE VERY FIRST PLACE, IS THERE SUCH A THING AS A BLACK BAMBOO?

      If there’s a theme that Spa Manoli had firmly adhered to, it’s the BLACK OUT THEME. Black wall, black curtain, black blankets, etc. And how could this theme be soothing to a relaxing spa experience when black connotes eerie, mourning, bereavement and uncertainty. I wonder if Wons had ever experienced entering a dimly lighted black painted room? Oh yes probably, at a horror house in Star City.

      I have gone to Spa Manoli and I never felt a tinge of what Wons had experienced and observed. He must be hallucinating! His review (or message) here at Manila Touch is very unfair to those prospective customers who have yet to visit the place. In sales, we call that MISREPRESENTATION.

      If Wons is getting a Gift Certificate from Manolo for this erroneous and over-exaggerated review, please be conscientious enough to consider that you are actually misguiding the public.

    Manolo is a hands on manager. What do you expect? Haven’t you noticed? The trend revolves around him and not on how bad his spa services are; not on how elementary his therapists are.

    He must be doing something right. His haters are keeping an eye on him that they even know who his friends are. Haters whom I guess have returned to the spa for couple times.

    Luckily our identities are private here that Manolo has no idea who we really are. Again…he monitors…he’s keeping his post in his property together with his staffs…for I myself has experienced that…I was even banned…just a friendly reminder guys…don’t even attempt to do somthing nasty in their shower area…because I guarantee you…You’re being watched by the entire management…strollers…not the spa for us…

    KUDOS!!!!

    The post I made was not malicious The spa is a great place except that nahipuan nga ako..that’s all. I made the post to validate the other posts and para lang ma remind ka na some people will not simply ignore and be quiet about it. Kakalat ang ginagawa mo. Just try to control and avoid such antics because meron di masasakyan ang ganun trip. To the others na nahipuan din or worse nabosohan sa shower and who made similar posts here, let us not expect na iaadmit lang ang ganung trip. Mag ingat na lang po tayo para wag maulit or kung big deal pa din po wag na lang bumalik. Let us understand that these antics could possibly be a sickness or some kind of a case. May kanya kanyang trip. Dun sa iba dyan na customers just be on guard para wag mahipuan or mabosohan. Peace.

    I AM A MASSAGE FREAK BUT SINCE I TRANSFERRED HERE IN MANILA, I HAVEN’T HAD ANY MASSAGE YET..

    I WAS SEARCHING FOR A CLEAN AND AFFORDABLE MASSAGE SERVICE AND I BUMPED INTO SOME REVIEWS ON THIS SPA (I CANT REMEMBER WHETHER THIS IS THE SAME SITE OR NOT).

    OVER A MONTH AGO, I READ A LOT OF GOOD COMMENTS ABOUT THIS. I EVEN READ COMMENTS ON OTHER ESTABLISHMENTS’ THREADS MENTIONING THIS SPA-THAT THEY’VE HAD GREAT EXPERIENCES.
    NOW, IM FACED WITH ALL THESE NEGATIVE COMMENTS….

    HOWEVER, IM STILL GOING TO TRY THIS SPA TO SEE FOR MYSELF. I AM EXCITED TO MEET MANOLO AND BE FRIENDS WITH HIM, REALLY. :)

    TO EVERYONE: I AM DEFINITELY POSTING AN HONEST FOLLOW-UP COMMENT REGARDING MY EXPERIENCE AFTERWARDS.

      Here’s my short and honest review of Spa Manoli …
      (1) Courteous therapists
      (2) Massage is mediocre, not as good as the ones I tried along E.Rod and Timog which is priced way lower than Spa Manoli
      (3) Massage bed has no holes, it gave me stiff neck after my massage
      (4) I tend to agree that Manolo (the guy in his early 50’s at the reception) is not the typical cheerful and easy-to-go-with type of person. Wala naman siyang pangit na pinakita sa akin pero siguro may ganun talagang tao na hindi magaan ang personality. Hayaan na lang natin sya.
      (5) Medyo tricky ang facade ng establishment niya, parang close parati. At natawa ako sa “IN-DEPTH MASSAGE” na nakapaskel sa labas. May ganung word ba? Baka deep massage?

      TAPOS NUNG NALIGO AKO, NAKABANTAY SI MANOLO. KALA KO DISKUMPYADO SA AKIN YUN PALA LALAPIT PARA HAWAKAN AKO. AYSUS! MABUTI NA LANG AT NAKA IWAS KAGAD AKO.

      PAGLABAS KO, GALIT SYA SA AKIN. TINANONG KAGAD KUNG MAGKANO ANG ITITIP KO SA NAGMASAHE SA AKIN. NUNG BINIGAY KO ANG PERA, ANG TAGAL AKONG SINUKLIAN. PARANG NANG IINIS.

    I’d say this spa is certainly one of the best in Quezon City area. Mr. Manolo I guess is a hands on owner that during my frequent visits, I’ve witnessed how he guarded his therapists as well as the people who were taking advantage of the spas premises for their malicious acts. I guess the therapists do it as well; distructing clients particularly those who stay in the shower room for long to hook up. There are more satisfied clients compared to a few whom I guess were just too unlucky to have done their real intent. ” TO HOOK UP!” I just don’t know if anybody here notices their too obvious signages saying….” For quality assurance purposes your STAY at Spa Manoli is monitored.” Which I guess the few good for nothing loafers hardly comprehend. Tagalugin natin…” Upang Mapanatili ang Magandang serbisyong hatid ng SPA MANOLI, amin pong binanbantayang maiigi ang inyong pananatili sa loob ng establisimiyentong ito.” Gee! I hope you got it! I and the other satisfied clients who knew how to respect house rules would be patronizing this SPA for good! My friends and I won’t have second thoughts of recommending this Spa to other spa lovers who wish to experience real massages at reasonable prices.

    Just one thing for Mr. Manolo, I hope you’ll hire more therapists because the last time I’ve been to your spa I remembered we were like eight people patiently waiting for our turn just to experience your therapists great hands.

    Good Karma!
    Yours truly

      DALAWA NA LANG ANG THERAPISTS KASI NI MANOLO. I have talked to one of his therapists about it …umaalis daw therapists nya dahil daw sa ugali ni Manolo.

      Napansin ko sa mga messages ni Manolo dito na galit siya sa mga may negative comments sa kanya dito at ina-assume nya na nag eexpect kasi ng extra service at na disappoint sila. Pero according to his therapists, si Manolo raw itong mahilig manghipo o mandakma sa mga therapists nya. At ginagawa raw ni Manolo ito nang pabigla bigla na wala nang chance ang therapists nya makaiwas.

    This manolo is pathetic.

    The comments here are true esp the hipo and paninilip.

    Iand if i am not mistaken he has a very bad attitude towards all guys who declined his advances

    Kasing dilim ng spa na to ang ugali mo manolo. Mahilig pa tong umirap at sumagot ng pilosopo.
    Whe thinks so highly of himself when u reply here with bad grammar and bad attitude.

    I was witness ti numerous advances to my friends and even other customers. As in bastos ka.

    Nakaka trauma. I will never spend on your spa. Ever!

    Mr. Manoli, can you do something about my problem. I had a bad massage from your staff last September 1 at around 8pm. I cannot remember the name of the therapist.

    I think he fractured my lower back because he pressed it so hardly and quickly. I’ve consulted a ortho and advised me to wear a brace and attend a theraphy.

    Are your therapists properly trained? If yes, where?

    I am just afraid that some of your other customers might have the same problem as me.

      @ Bernie,

      I have reviewed all my entry forms from August 20 up to current date, September 17, 2012. I do not show any “Bernie” coming in the spa.

      May i have the name you used when you came in the spa?
      May i have the accurate date and time you came in?

      I have all customer record/s from the time they came in to the time they’ve left, from now up to 1.5 years ago.

      I do not show a “Bernie” ciming in Spa Manoli.

      May i also see the medical attention that you sought that gave you such assessments.

    Manolo, please lang po hwag kayong mamboso sa mga naliligo. At lalo pa na mamilit ng customers nyo na makipag sex sa inyo. Kakahiya po kayo, ang tanda tanda nyo na bastos pa po kayo.
    Tapat naman po akong customers na gusto lang magpamassage. Pag labas ko ay inirapan nyo pa po ako sabay bulong sa katabi nyo. Very unfair ka naman Manolo. Kaya pala puro negative comments dito kasi dahil din po sa inyo

      May i please have the name you used if you came in Spa Manoli.
      I looked at my entry forms from August 1 to current date, Sept 17, and does not show a Shaun, or a Santos or a Shaun Santos coming in the spa. Oh, by the way, i never ask for last names.

      We, the spa, its management, massage therapist assure that there is no sex act that goes on in the spa to assure that spa manoli maintain its clean personality.

      #1. I am the only one in the reception besides customers, so to make irap is almost impossible. Furthermore, to comment on someone is impossible because i only have myself to speak to. So, its almost impossible for me to make comment with someone because there is no someone else besides me.

      #2. We, spa manoli management and staff, make it a point that we are seen by customers to assure that they are no sexual activities that goes on in the spa. We don’t need to hide. We let customers know that we are around, so that no sexual act goes on!

    Wow… so many negative comments recently.

    I am a regular client of Spa Manoli. I get my massage weekly (if time permits) with my friend and we both share the same assessment about Spa Manoli. Spa Manoli is one of the BEST spas in the Metro.

    I honestly dont understand why a lot of people are saying bad things not only about the Spa but also towards the owner. Manolo is a good man. He’s very hands on in maintaining the spa and he treats his customers really well. I wouldn’t drive from Antipolo to Quezon City just to have a massage if not for the quality of the spa that Manolo is offering.

    I just hope that people here (even Manolo) would be objective about their posts. For clients posting their feedback, I hope that you give an honest and unbiased review of the spa. For Manolo, dont let yourself be affected so much by the negative feedback the customers are giving. They just want to give their feedback. Some lack the skills in coming up with a constructive feedback. But its still feedback. As they say, you cant please everyone. Just ignore. Arguing with them is not worth the time and effort. You have established a loyal client base. You can just work from there. I hope everyone would just get along.

    Spa Manoli is highly recommended. There will be new massage therapists coming in this week. I hope they’re as skilled as the current ones. If not, I’m sure Manolo will be able to do something to make them at par with the therapists working there right now.

    See you next weekend Spa Manoli. Thank you for the birthday greeting Manolo! That was a really thoughtful gesture. Something that you dont normally get from other spas.

    I was there last night for the first time. On my way from Tomas Morato going to Kamuning via Scout Gandia, I found this place. It was indeed a very clean and worry-free massage.

    The receptionist guy (I wasn’t able to ask his name) is courteous and accommodating. He’s good in explaining their services, and didn’t push or influenced me to choose the pricey ones. As the matter of fact, he suggested the combination (Swedish, Shiatsu and Thai) massage that costs only P430.00 for 1.5 hours (it’s a great deal). He even accompanied me to the vanity/wet area and explained their facilities.

    It’s true that the wet area is somewhat “open” close to the locker room but I don’t mind as I’m already a spa-goer. He provided me a black “sarong” to cover myself just in case. As for the massage, it was great — the masseur knows what he’s doing, professional and is not in a hurry.

    However, it could have been better if:

    1) the entrance gate/door should be more obviously visible. It took me a minute to realize there’s a door bell. I was scratching my head while finding a way to get in;
    2) the bath (white) towel is bigger and can wrap around at least 34″ waist;
    3) the electric fan in massage area won’t hit the curtains. The curtain was touching my feet during massage but the massuer was keen on this and adjusted the fan to make me feel more comfortable; and
    4) they offer hot tea after the massage.

    But nevertheless, I still had a great experience with this spa — clean (didn’t offer any “indecent proposals”), friendly, and relaxing. It’s very recommendable.

      During the past week, i have cited several customers for the following reason/s:

      a. Customers having oral sex in the shower/bathroom
      b. Touching the theraparist in their private parts
      c. Making indescent proposals to the therapists
      d. Customers peaking in others rooms while other customers are getting massages

      Which one do you fall under.
      I am sure customers are not happy when they are cited for their wrong doing!
      Where do they turn to? Posting untrue stories because they know Manila Touch would approve anything they post without questions.

      Therefore, you fall under another hater of spa manoli simply because you didn’t get what you want!

      Please do not return to spa manoli. I only want to serve respective customers and not haters as yourself.

        Review all your comments in all of the spas here in Manila Touch, you have nothing good to say. Stop your melicious intents.

        I saw a picture of you in one of the sites here in the internet.
        I finally know what you look like. No wonder you’re so desperate for attention.

        Again, you need to grow up and stop your melicious intent.

        Manila Touch needs to ban you from here.
        Business owners are trying to make a living and you have nothing decent to say.

        Grow up!

    The owner of this SPA is the worst. We came in last night. We asked if its OPEN because its so dark inside. The owner open the door and said in a very sarcastic tone “NO ITS CLOSE” So we left. We don’t go to a SPA with ill mannered owners. I heard he is really bad tempered and makes sexual advances on his customers while they are lying naked.

      I perfectly remember you! You were the hilariously irate customer that left with a bad attitude!

      You were the one that came in the other night with your 2 other friends. While your 2 friends and I were laughing and joking, you have taken the joke completely out of content.

      Any Spa Manoli customers knows that its very well lit outside the spa and a flashing open sign is right outside the door.

      When you came in and i opened the gate, you asked if the spa is open. I looked at you and then i looked at the open sign, and you looked at the open sign and i said, very joking, “nah”. Your two friends and you, at first, laughed. Then you walked in the spa, where the light is dimmed, and asked again if the spa is open. For the second time, i looked at you and looked at the sign and i have already let you inside the spa and again, i said jokingly, nah. Again, your two friends laugh then you got irrate.

      Its very obvious who’s stupid here. Assess the situation!
      If you are in a happy and joking mood, don’t mix it with short temper and apply an impatient mood along with it.

      I am glad you left, since you don’t seem like a valuable customer.
      For your other 2 friend, keep up the sense of humor. Life is too short to be grouchy.

      To this anonymous only, please do not come back to spa manoli, you are a spa’s nightmare customer!

    had my massage at spa manoli last week. galing! sarap ng massage. and best of all, walang hanky panky. the masseur didnt even try to tease me or get me hard. galing din ng stretching. congrats manolo! ill surely go back to your spa.

    that being said, i just have a few suggestions. i know it’s written here but i think mas masarap yung massage kung may face hole yung mga beds. im not complaining but merely suggesting.

    tapos nahihiya ako dun sa shower room kasi open. although buti na lang pumunta ako dun, walang ibang tao. kahit na alam kong walang nangyayari dung masama, nakakahiya lang. may “peak hours” ba ang spa nyo so i can avoid those times?

    Hi,

    I have been reading a lot of comments about Spa Manoli. My only judgment is go try it your self.

    As for me, Spa Manoli is so far the CLEANEST massage spa I have been to. The therapists are just great and the Manolo is accomodating. Take my opinion with a little skepticism, but I’ve been there 4 times, and each session is better than the last. Can’t remember the therapists though.

      What you said is true! People do need to try the spa for themselves rather than relying what is posted. This goes to all of the spa in Metro Manila.

      Try the spa for yourselves and prove it to yourself whether its a good spa or not.

    I’ve gone to Spa Manoli once and never returned back.

    I read some of the reviews here and some are similar to my experience. It actually confirmed my impression. I think that it’s better for Manolo to hire somebody else in replacement of his presence at the spa. There is something in his personality that irritates me. I know this is too unfair but that’s what I felt. He is so intimidating and assuming.

      And sorry we weren’t able to cruise the spa because ‘we’ walk the spa to make sure that only quality massage is whats going on.

      What name did you use when i arrived at the spa so i can check my records.

    Great massage experience at a very good price. I’ve experienced almost all the therapists including the new batch. I’d say they we’re all well trained and are very distinct on their own techniques. Rolly, Dats, Adolf and the others we’re just simply awesome therapists.

    Been through a lot spas here and there. I considered this Spa one of the bests. No questions asked.

    Keep doing great and just don’t mind haters. They’re just envious faggots.

    Bon,

    Its so easy to write what you like to write especially if your not using your actual name. Its also so easy to accuse and point fingers when your hiding behind an assumed name.
    Its sad that you weren’t able to find a better massuer than Danny here at spa manoli, now that i have new and better therapisrs. Danny was an average massuer who left the spa because someone else’s decision but his own. Basically, Danny abandoned his work because someone else said so. FROM WHAT YOU WROTE! YOU DIDN’T KNOW THAT!!!

    ALSO! Its so easy to write and accuse with what your claiming. Your using an assumed name and i am using my realy name. So tell me, who is more credible?

    Bon, your decision to look for another spa was right. If you are the way you are, then i wouldn’t want you as customer !!!! You are not the only spa manoli guest, so why shoukd i be stressed by you while a lot more others are loyal to the spa.

    Good luck is finding a better that spa manoli.

    I used to visit this spa a lot when Danny was still there. But when Manolo ley go off Danny, I stopped patronizing it altogether. Manolo, I think your problem is that you are not open to criticism. And that is not a good thing if you have a business. And yes, you also touched me inappropriately on two occasions. Hence, I stopped going. Nearby spas offer better massages. Good luck na lang sayo and I hope you learn to be more open to your areas for improvement. Thanks.

      Adrian,

      First and foremost, thank you for putting a stop to the malicious thread that has been going on at spa manoli’s site.

      Yes, i will refrain from using profanity. I only did so due to the unethical conduct of some of the bloggers interrupting Spa Manoli’s peacefulness.

      I shall also entrust on you to closely monitor the bloggers on this site who discusses their experience with Spa Manoli! I do not wish for any other malicious comments that are non spa related issues.

      If you review all my previous comments, they are all professional, until these recent comments against me, personally.

      I thank you so much taking care of the malicious thread that was happening for quiet some time, me being involve in it, but simply to protect spa manoli.

      Again, i shall entrust on you to not approve or display malicious thread that has no relation to spa manoli.

      Thank you.

    I also think that the owner of Spa Manoli should just ignore negative statments (of any kind) and take things with a grain of salt. If there is a negative comment about his spa, he should simply thank the customer for the comment and/or acknowledge, address the concern, and simply say “This matter will be addressed. Thank you for your comment.”

    I see that the owner has been defensive and would lambast other negative posters. The thing with naysayers in this forum is that they seek satisfaction in making the Spa Manoli’s owner angry and affected. Negative people feeds on negative reactions. That’s what makes them satisfied. But the truth is they are all dying inside whether they know it other otherwise.

    I’ve been to Spa Manoli thrice. The place isn’t so bad for a P300 massage and quality of the massage is at par with other spas. Even better.

    To the owner of Spa Manoli: Just ignore them. Please live up to your spa that is ambitious in a good way to be “classy.”

    Very obviously —- use “its obvious”

    @ spa manulot

    Be careful with your possessives. It should be “it’s obvious” (with apostrophe s).

    And your suggestion is incorrect to begin. Read the original sentence below:

    If you put yourself on the outside of the cubicles, you would very obviously see if cubicles are being occupied or not.

    Revised version:

    If you’re outside the cubicles, you will see right away if it’s occupied or not.

    OR (If you want it to be more specific.):

    If you’re standing away from one of the cubicles, you will see right away if it’s being occupied by the therapist and the client.

    —–

    If you’re going to criticize another person’s poor grammatical skills, make sure that your grammar is as they say “impeccable.” Actually, the good ones “humbly” suggest corrections (and oftentimes in private). In this case, I’m just giving you a dose of your own medicine. I am not humble to those who are rude.

    Read up more. And don’t mix Tagalog English with gay speak because for someone who should be a “grammarian,” it’s not convincing and you’re putting the editors in a very bad light.

    massage is okay. tried this spa more than once narin and noticed that some of the therapists are PAMIN. nothing against that. I am just sharing :D

    There are times na medyo maingay si Manolo sa spa area but tolerable naman. Okay naman since the price if cheap. :D

    Place is dark but nice ang ambiance. Nakakasabay ko madalas are medyo may mga edad and medyo chubs. Wala lang.. I am not complaining or anything.. Just sharing :D

      You are wrong!!! My therapists are not feminine. They are all straight and married and with children. Sorry to say, but i do not hire homosexuals as therapist, dilikado.

      Maingay, terribly sorry again. Even my therapist don’t know that i am around when i check yup on them. hmmm,

      i think when you mentioned about the older gentlemen and extra weight that they carry, only means to me that you are looking to score and are looking for a certain type but unfortunately, you’re not getting lucky in finding anyone that you make patol…. Also, you are coming at the wrong time, because i have a very good line up of customers who are ‘good looking’ and have beautiful bodies. I’m not gonna tell you when those types comes in because you’re only out to score with them.

      I’m not complaining nor accusing. Just sharing….

      Hi Spasma,

      In any spa, you tip according to the service you have rendered. You have to assess the service that was just given to you. If its good or if its bad or if its standard.

      If it’s a bad massage, then tip low.
      If its standard, tip according to a certain percent from the spa’s charges.
      If the massage is excellent, then you may tip a little higher than normal. It’s called appreciation of service that was just given to you.

      Good Luck.

      Hi Winner,

      My sentiments exactly. That’s exactly what came to mind, Lino of QC probably is begging my therapist for something extra and the therapist said no because i go around checking on the therapist. And once he saw me look in his cubicle, he got angry because he wasn’t able to get what he wanted, extra service.

      And you are correct again. I do have customers, like you, who appreciates the good massage we provide and tip therapists more that the actual charge on the massage. Thanks for verifying that for me.

      Oh, hey, good luck on your new car winner. That’s your 4th car. hihhihi.

    Lino,

    First and foremost, therapist do not know that i watch their work during their massage.

    Second, i know exactly which therapist is in which cubicle when they have work to do, which i would not suddenly open the cubicle abruptly. I will confess, there are times when customers are in cubicles and when we need to use the cubicle, is when we open up the curtains, suddenly not abruptly. If you put yourself on the outside of the cubicles, you would very obviously see if cubicles are being occupied or not. Besides, my therapists DO NOT CLOSE THE CURTAINS ALL THE WAY. And when you see cubicles being occupied or used, then you do not touch the cubicles until the therapist is completely done!

    Third, 200 pesos for a tip is very common for my therapists. They are that good that they actually get more than 200. Some get 300, 500 up to 800 per 1 or 1.5 hour session, therefore, i never question tips. I welcome high tips because i truly believe that my therapist are worth it. The only time i questions customers is when they give 500-800 peso tip. I make sure that they are aware that they are giving a high amount and to make sure that they are not making an error. I WILL NEVER REFUSE HIGH TIPS! for my therapists. If i did say that to you, i must have gotten some sort of a hint that we were having a good conversation and were kidding around. If it was meant as a joke, and now you are taking it seriously, then i wouldn’t say i’m sorry. I will say i’m sorry that you don’t have a sense of humor which that i thought you did! Question: Why didn’t you say anything right then and there in front of my face so we would have taken care of it? Why wait and blog while you couldn’t taken care of it then.

    If the case is that you waited to blog a problen rather than settling it right then and there, then you have no courage what so ever, then this accusation is here say. Paninira.

    I am sure that you didn’t compketely had a terrible time at Spa Manoli, nor a completely bad time. Give me the time and date when you came in and i will search who did your massage to assure the readers that you are just being maarte.

    You didn’t mention anything about the massage, the ambience, the cleanliness, the spa itself or the locker room or shower room, therefore, you must have enjoyed the Spa Manoli experience.

    Haay, everyone reading this, please if you have questions, comments or concerns, please raise it to me immediately, so i can take care of the matter at once. If you wait and blog your complaints, then your intention is with malice and are out to try to ruin a very good reputation, which is not nice at all! !!!

    Nakapunta na po ako sa Spa Manoli. I HAD A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE. Nung naka tihaya na po ako, bigla pong binuksan ni Manoli ang curtain at nagulat at nasilaw po ako. Biglaan masyado ang pagbukas n’ya na pwede naman po syang sumilip lang or dahan dahan. At bakit po ba dapat buksan kung alam naman n’ya na may minamasahe sa loob? Pag labas ko po, inabot ko po sa kanya ang tip ko para sa masahista. P200 po ang binigay ko. Sabi ba naman n’ya:”SIGURO MAY GINAWA KAYO SA LOOB KAYA MALAKI ANG TIP MO!” Napahiya po ako sa sinabi n’ya. May mga ibang tao pa namang nakaharap. Gawain ba yun ng may ari ng negosyo? KAPAG MATAAS PO BA ANG TIP NG CUSTOMER, IBIG SABIHIN MAY EXTRA SERVICE NA GINAWA? Bakit po ganun magtanong si Manoli? Assuming po ba sya na talagang may nangyayari sa loob ng spa nya? HINDI PO AKO NARELAX SA EXPERIENCE KO. Yung biglang buksan ang buo ng kurtina at sumilaw sa akin ang ilaw sa labas pati na ang mukha ni Manoli. Nakaka-stress!

      To Lino again,

      I just check the whole month of June for a customer named Lino and/or all the forms that has tips worth 200, to see if i get a match.

      Here are my findings:
      1. I never had a customer named Lino, therefore, you probably gave me a fake name when you came in Spa Manoli.
      2. All forms that indicated a 200peso tip, does not have a name Lino.
      3. Or your probably using a fake name here in Manila Touch.

      My conclusion:

      1. Here say
      2. Your fake and are just out to ruin a good reputation!
      3. If you have a claim, why hide behind a ficticious name!?
      4. You are not telling the exact truth
      5. You lack courage

      Tell me the date and time you came in so i can see the therapist that did your massage in order to determine your experience at spa manoli….

    Been to the place several times already, overall really nice place. You get more than what you pay for.
    Manolo is really nice and i agree na liars (mind your spelling please) yung ibang nagcomment on them being molested.
    As is, ok na yung place meron lang akong konting suggestions for improvements. Una, yung toilet bowl sa wet area, i doubt kung merong gagamit nun for number 2 kasi open sya in between the 2 shower stalls. Ok na yung urinal for wiwi. Second, if magooffer ng body scrub service sana merong separate area for this. When i was being washed sakto me mga bagong customers naka tihaya pa naman ako at flag ceremony. Third, ok lang na walang hole yung bed, Manolo provided naman a round pillow with hole na… Pero sana yung bed, leather ang cover sa ilalim. Yung hindi nagaabsorb ng liquid. I know that they chan
    ge sheets after each massage, pero one time nung summer, pag dapa ko sa bed, feel ko ang pawis nung previous na humiga don kasi damp.
    Yun lang, pero again very nice place and sulit!

    upon reading this whole thread, I’ll say id like to give this spa a visit. I just want to comment on a few topics and make a suggestion.

    Black Motiff – i think is creative and relaxing and is actually kinda chic. I’ll post another comment after visiting the spa though to see it personally.

    Open bathroon – This is not bad. Actually, this is like a spa staple lalo na sa ibang bansa.

    Therapists – Generally, people here liked it so it’s kinda intriguing. May I suggest though that the owner try to recruit the former therapists of the closed Sanctuario. They were pretty good at what they did and also the BEST looking masseurs in town :P Sayang lang at sarado na sila :(

    Parking – a major issue for me as I won’t compromise the safety of my car for an hour of relaxation. Wala naman talaga magagawa management kung limited talaga ang parking, but i guess they can hire like a guard to look after the cars. Kahit hindi nga guard, kahit yung mga parking boy lang.

    Hole in the massage table – This is another one of my major concerns. Sana kahit onti-onti or paisa isa, palitan yung mga table ng mga may massage holes. It adds so much comfort kasi. I tried Asian Massage kasi dati and dahil sa floor lang and walang massage table na may butas, sakit ng leeg ko after. lol

    About the owner touching people – I think is kinda far fetched. No businessman on the right state of mind would sacrifice his livelihood for something as shallow as that. That’s just unbelievable. About Manolo roaming around the wet area.. hmmm.. You know how when you go out for shopping, may mga taong naiilang pag may bumubuntot sa kanilang sales people, baka ganun yung nafefeel ng ibang guest dito. Naiilang. Lalo na when they’re not that covered. The management can clean the wet area like twice a day and ok na yun. No need to constantly check on that area cuz it will make customers uneasy. I respect the management’s decision though to keep this area always clean as this became the downfall of New York Spa and CityLifestyle – very very dirty and unmaintained wet area.

    Last. Just an inquiry. Do you accept credit card payments? I plan to give this spa a visit sometime this month :)

      Hi Rubberducky,

      Hope to see you soon.

      Just a couple of things that you mentiined….

      I did hire therapists from Sanctuario but unfortunately they said they can’t work without the extra service. They said its part of their service to earn more. I ended up letting them go because i don’t want my therapist offering extra service to my clients nor do i want anything sexual going on in the spa….

      There are sm nuch, plenty, of parking space in front of the spa. In front of the spa, on the left of the spa, along the street, across the street. Theres an abundance of parking. Park anywhere just please don’t block driveways and entrances. Barangay tanods walk the area, alot. They drive the side streets and the Barangay Hall and Barangay Post is next to the spa, so i have no worries. My car has been parked along the street and nothing has been taken from it for 6 years now.

      Unfortunately, we don’t accept credit cards. Cash basis only.

      Again, hope to see you soon.

      Tama lang ginagawa ni manolo sa wet area, negosyo nya , dapat i respito yong area, na minsan ginagawang parang new york spa. Manolo around maiwasan, bakit ka mailang kung pinunta mo doon ay matinong masahi? Sa parking , busy street yan walang mag lakas loob na mangloko sa car mo, malapit lang sa barangay outpost. Sa 4 na car na ginagamit ko ,sa pagpunta sa spa ni manolo, ni isang gasgas wala. Sa totoo lang may mga client ng spa na walang kahiyaan, kahit may tao sa dressing area, gumagawa ng malaswa. De lahat ng tao ay natutuwa sa kalaswaan. Marami pumupunta sa spa ni manolo dahit ito ay the best spa sa kanila. Proud ako na makita ang car ko sa harap ng spa ni manolo dahil spa ito ng matitinong tao. Sana sa mga spa goer na iba ang intention sa iba nalang kayo pumunta. Peace to all.!

    I’ve never known a spa owner who is as concerned, meticulous and hands-on as Manolo, which is why quality is hardly ever compromised.

    And about the all black inspired motif. No one has ever had the balls to take such a design risk, which I think paid off beautifully, and tastefully. I believe it even helps take away the clutter of images polluting our minds, and just focus on absolute relaxation.

Ok k lang? Or isa k lang sinungaling for all those accusations against Manolo—- sino ang may matinong pag-iisip who would still decide to come back???

    FINALLY! I’ve tried Manoli Spa! Here are my honest review of the place: (1) the black motif I think is not proper for a spa as it may conceal the dirt or cleanliness of the place (2) the place is basically small, toilet & bath is not so clean and hard to find (3) parking along the road is easy, as there was only 1 car parked in front of the establishment (4) massage service is mediocre, it’s what basically one would have on a typical home service massage (5) hmmmm, I tend to believe that the owner (manoli) indeed cruises on his own spa. I ‘m an average looker but a gymfit, he flirted me but I politely turned him down.

      @ken soriano,

      Funny, here’s my thought on your comment:

      You must have read all the praises and positive comments on spa manoli and decided to attack the spa on those aspects.
      Common, be original! The comments you stated are what spa manoli is excellent on! The black motif gives serenity, the locker room and shower area is not hard to find. You must be really stupid if you can’t find it after orientation. The whole spa is SUPER clean because i clean it myself and i make sure its clean. I only hire the best therapists. I’ve rejected so much therapists just to make sure customers gets the best massage. The place is not small. Its 2700 sq mtrs. Your bed spacer is small, as small as your brain! Definitely plenty of parking!

      One last thing, if you are only average looking, even if your gymfit, i wouldn’t give you the pleasure. You have taken my friendliness and accommodation as if i’m hitting on you. As a good reception, i have to make you feel welcome and wanted by the spa so you would enjoy your stay. Dah, your stupid!

      You, ken, are a wrong judge of character and a very poor evaluater!
      I am placing you in the same category as a ‘hater’ and naninira nang magandang reputation….

      Ugh! Your just one of them!!!

    Guys, i cannot please you all, Im just a simple spa goer, I went to Spa Manoli to experience their signature massage, Superb relaxation but the only thing I’m complaining about is Manolo, below the belt talaga yung ginawa nya sa akin, Im discreet guy, Goodlooking, I admit I am BI, pero dapat he doesn’t treat me that way..Manolo you know the whole truth. Masama magsinungaling…wala ako massasabing masama sa SPA mo kung hindi ikaw lang mismo, pede mo naman gawin yun if you but please wag mo lalahatin ang lahat ng Bakla na katulad mo na papatulan ka kagad porke nagpakita ka ng motibo.. Wag ganun…Yun lang naman e, sinabi ko sa unang post ko na you are very accomodating at wala talaga ako masabi duon, Pero respect other people na katulad natin…Yun lang aminin mo lang…Nothing less nothing more to say…Surely i will be back at your spa kasi katulad nga ng sinabi ko, sulit na sulit naman ang masahe ng mga staff mo, mababait at magagaling. kaw din naman very accomodating…basta wag mo lang gagawin sa akin o sa kahit sinu man ang matipuhan mo. OK? God bless you!

      I am old enough to know what is right and what is wrong. I’ve made alot of business grow and prosper because of my dedication to everything that i do.

      I also know what is a lie and when someone is just desparate for attention.

      I’ve worked hard all my life to get where i am at and i have been pretty successful.

      Sorry Noel, you are no longer welcome in my spa. I don’t think your 300 or 430 will affect my business very much. This will be more your lost than mine. You’ve found the perfect spa to go to that the staff within goes out of their way to accomodate your every need. See if you can find that in other spas. See if you’ll get the same service elsewhere.

      Good luck!!!

    Hi Jeremy,

    First and foremost, thank you for not hiding behind a faketitous name to comment on the spa whether good or bad.

    I truly wish that you can recall the name of the therapist that did your massage so i can educate him more to improve his massage techniques. I, too, can’t take a guess which therapist did your massage because we don’t have an initial ‘D’ in our line of therapist.

    Kindly email me the date you came in the spa so i can look you up and find who did your massage. Please email me at: spamanoli@yahoo.com.

    Thanks Jeremy. You ought to try Rolly or Robert. They are ‘good’.

    I’d say that SPA MANOLI is one of spas that follows high quality standards with regards to services. We are naturally meticulous and I’d say some people commenting in this site just want to flaunt their senseless ” kaartihan”. Been here and there for real spas around the area and I’d say SPA Manoli has it. The other wasted spas in the area should get a training from this SPA from management skills to massage specialties.

    I was in Spa Manoli last night and the massage, as expected, ended up great. I really enjoy the massage that i almost feel asleep on the 1st half of the massage but then I was awaken when the circus part (the term I used for the stretching part coz’ I feel like I’m in a circus because of the high intensifying technique of my therapist) and an relaxing finishing touch completes the massage. What can I say, just like the first time.

    Spa Manoli is more than worth it.

    PS:
    I just don’t know why people try to bring down not only Spa Manoli but Manolo as well. Can’t they not understand that by mere fact that they keep on posting harsh and rude comments here, they are making Spa Manoli a star? Why? Simply because they are very much insecure with Spa Manoli over-all package. From the place down to the owner. :)

    Well, hands up and just enjoy.
    Why don’t you just try it and feel it to believe it. :)

    Chao, Spa Manoli :)

    For P300, you get what you pay for. Massage was alright by masseur “D” (forgot his complete first name- just the initial). But more improvements on:

    Correct rhythm and pressure should be fluid and consistent. The glide of hands on the body is interrupted by sudden pressure on the hands and wrong techniques of Swedish and Shiatsu combination. Massage therapy is a craft that should be taken seriously and professionally by masseurs. Know that the more serious they are in giving good massage, the more profit and loyalty they get.

    The stretching is good albeit it should be done slowly.

    Facilities are worth it for P300 – you get shower, locker (with two towels – white for drying up and a black sarong-like towel to cover your body when going to the massage area).

    The “pitch dark” theme may be relaxing for some, too dark for a few, but I find it “just different.” Can’t complain: it’s only P300.00.

    I’d say that with the right masseur who knows his craft, this spa will have a good potential to stay in the business for the long haul.

      Hello spadista,

      Honestly, all my therapist are nice and courteous. Some are nice looking and some are average. There are masculado and there are some that are not. Its a whole mixture of different types, but one thing they all have in common is that they can provide a good quality massage. They are all very strong as far as pressure is concern and they all have excellent routines and special techniques to assure you that your massage session is worth every cent.

      Come on by and give us a try.

      Thanks.

      I am trying to run a good and clean business here, as far as spas are concern. I have maintained a good reputation as far as providing a clean and wholesome spa where customers can only find nothing but good quality service.

      Kung hindi mo matitira ang spa ko kasi super ganda at super linis nya and hindi mo rin kayang matira and mga masahista ko kasi sumusunod sila sa mga policy ko na walang extra service, of course, sino pa ang iinsultohin mo kung hindi ako.

      Marami nang sumubok na sirain ang reputation nang Spa Manoli with extra service, holes in bed, super dilim, cleanliness, at mapanghi na CR, None has been successful, so now ang naisip mo ay ako.

      I will surpass your comment. I know the truth, and i don’t need to explain myself nor do i need to defend myself. You are another person who is trying to ruin a good reputation.

    Hi Manolo! I hope you still remember me. Like I told you earlier, I got to know about your spa through this thread.

    I got lost earlier on but Manolo is too kind to assist me in finding my way. Btw, can we park in the Riso printing and the laundry (im not sure abt the shop) in front of your spa? They’re closed at night and there are no no parking signs. I parked beside the residential houses.

    I already knew what to expect from your spa since I got to read this thread. Thanks Manolo for touring me in the place. I showered before I went to the place because of what I read that it’s an open area. After first seeing the shower area, it felt a bit awkward but after the massage, I realized that it should be okay since the lights are dimmed. Good thing Manolo showed me my locker because I couldn’t see a thing in the lockers. I didn’t even realize that they were letters until another client was looking for his locker and the other client helped him out.

    The black curtains are a bit confusing, I got lost finding my way out. Lol. As for the massage, it was good. You get to feel that your therapist knows what to do and not just pinch here and there. If there is sensual massage, I have no idea. Maybe I was too groggy and sleepy from the meds that I took before the massage. I could compare the massage to those of Wensha and Amistad.

    So overall, me likey likey! For the price of P300/hour and P430 for 1 1/2 hours, you wouldn’t find anything like this. Wensha and Amistad charges P750 and above. So just think Spa Manoli is just like those high end spas less the food and the wet area. For this price, you wouldn’t even find spas with locker and shower area (you just change where your cubicle is). So you get your money’s worth at Spa Manoli.

    John
    P.S. I don’t usually write reviews on spas but I’ve been to quite a lot of spas lately (trust me, I already lost count) and your spa deserves the recognition. Nice Work. :)

    High Five for Spa Manoli.

    Though the Spa looks SO-SO on the outside, but wait until you see what’s on the inside. The exterior was different from elsewhere but it surely gives you the perfect relaxation ambiance with the Black Bamboo Theme from the entrance down to curtain falls on the locker room up to the massage area.

    The owner was very accommodating and very hospitable to the guest, including me. And he will surely give you the “perfect idea” of a perfect massage just exactly the way you it.

    The price is very affordable and MORE than worth it.

    And the massage, just almost perfect and definitely a clean. It was a heyday for me during the massage especially the stretching part which. A different massage style with a twist that will surely make you crave for more. The massage was really amazing and gives you the wonderful pampering massage experience.

    Verdict!
    Go Spa Manoli. Keep it up! High Five!

    And about the ES. Just forget about it! People go to massage to relax and not to have some hanky panky experience at all. And with the kind of massage Spa Manoli have, I bet ES will have no place on your mind…

    Spa manoli is the best spa for me. What is the use of using spa bed with a hole if you wont get a good massage. Doon sa bakla na nag reklamo about side mirror,im sure hindi sa spa manoli nawala or nag ccnugaling ka lang. Sa tagal kung nag pupunta sa spa ni manolo using 4 cars one at a time , ni gasgas wala , considering high end cars gamit ko . Pansin ko lang ako lang ang nag pupunta doon na pa iba iba gamit na car
    Pro walang nangyaring nakawan or gasgasan. Baurus cguro luma na ang car mo de mo napansin na laglag sa kalsada ng napadaan ka sa hump kaya kusang nalaglag dahil sa kalawang sa subrang ka lumaan mas luma pa sa car ni manolo sa harap ng spa nya na worth 70k nalang.

    Also, I mentioned the lack of a face hole (or at least a face pillow or something to simulate a hole) as being most important issue to me and this was also mentioned by at least one other post. But it seems to have been downplayed, argued against, and summarily dismissed.

      I agree. I wish that i could segragate the body scrub into its own private area. This is one reason why i have limited the body scrub from 5pm to 8pm only. To avoid the dyahe moments. Hehehehe, or sometimes, intriguing moments….

      In the next spa, definitely, this is one to consider, because i am hearing alot of good comments on our body scrub and the materials/products that we are using. So definitely i will consider your request.

    Hi Manolo,

    While I commend you for your diligence in responding to the good comments of your customers, I also abhor the manner in which you react to the not-so-good ones. Good or bad, take it in the same way. In fact, take the negative comments more seriously because these are the ones who truly care for your business. Do not be so petty and reactive. Nakikisabay ka rin sa kababawan nila eh! Talo ka in the end because these are customers and their money is what you are gunning for, right? You’ll be a hypocrite if you’ll say no; otherwise, if not for their money, you will not have your business. Mamili ka, PERA ng customer mo or pride mo? If it’s the former, then UMAYOS ka, but if you choose the latter, magsara na lang kayo! Tandaan mo, you’re just s speck of dust in the galaxy of spa business.

    Show your professionalism and sound judgement in your correspondence being the ambassador of the spa. Be proactive.

    Good luck.

      Jonathan,

      First and foremost, thank you for your opinion. And i shall take it as that, as an opinion, an individual’s opinion.

      To answer your question or comment: I chose neither. I chose neither money nor customer. The only thing that i will ever choose is to perfect the quality massage that we have been providing the customers, customers who knows how to appreciate a good massage. I chose to continue to provide the quality massage that most spa lacks now a days and will continue to give the quality massage whether the customer is good or bad. No matter what.

      By concentrating on the good quality massage, my spa, like other good spas that provide good massages, will always stay on top and will always be talked about and be visited for always. Why? Because hindi namin binabastos ang mga customers namin by offering them extra service.

      So whether you like how I respond to customers in this blog or not, does not matter much to me because the people or the customers that truly know me and has been visiting Spa Manoli for quite some time now, knows who i am, what i stand for and how i treat people. I am a good person and know how to identify good vs. bad.

      World Peace.

      Best.
      Manolo

    Mabuti naman at sa tagal ko ng naghahanap online ng matinong spa, heto na. Mr. Manolo, paki advise kung papano makarating jan dahil magcocommute lang kami ng kaibigan ko pagdating jan sa Pinas – manggagaling kami halimbawa sa MRT Kamuning. Pag taxi naman, maaring di alam ng driver ang lugar nyo.

      I am so terribly sorry for the late reply. My internet has been down for a couple of weeks now. But none the less, hope i am not too late to respond to your question.

      From Balintawak, which is North area right? Keep going straight on Edsa, heading towards GMA. On GMA, make a right on Timog Street. A couple of blocks down, on the left side, you will see a Shell Gas Startion, make a left there. That is Scout Ybardolaza. 5 blocks down, you will see Triple J Store on that right, make a right there. That is Scout Gandia. We are right there in the corner, on the right side. It’s hard to miss.

      Please let me know when your coming.

    Wow…

    Everything they said here, lahat nang puri, lahat nang quality service, lahat nang praises are true.

    I couldn’t be anymore satisfied with the service i got from Spa Manoli.
    Home the management maintain the service that they are saying. Ang dami dami na dyan spa na walang kwenta ang service at extra service at pera lang ang habol.

    Keep up the good work Spa Manoli.

    Spa Manoli is one of the best spas Ive ever been.

    1. Interiors — the design of the spa is very original. The black motif sets a mood thats very relaxing and tranquil. Every detail of the design is very well thought of. Over-all, the design is very consistent.

    2. Customer Service — Manolo (the owner) will be welcoming you personally. The first time I saw him, I got intimidated because of he’s a bit stiff but after a few minutes, everything became relaxed. He does a tour for first timers, introducing the different areas of the spa. He also encourages feedback from his customers after the massage. He even provides a summary of the service that the therapist rendered–From and To time, price of the service, the name of the assigned therapist, etc. His therapists are very professional and respectful.

    3. Quality of the Massage – its a 4 out of 5 for me. It would be better if you experience it yourself.

    4. Facilities – no sauna or jacuzzi but they have a locker and shower area. Massage cubicle is basic but spacious.

    5. Price – massage is very budget friendly at 300 per hour or 450 for 1 1/2 hours. You’ll find cheaper spas within the area with a 200 to 250 price range but you’ll realize that the extra 50-100 that you will be spending in Spa Manoli is all worth it.

    6. No ES – its very disappointing to encounter a spa that focuses more on ES. Like in the usual bulong in the middle of the massage and if you say no, end of the massage follows. With Spa Manoli, you wont encounter any bulong or offer leading to US (Im not 100% that theres really no ES here but not until I experience one from them, Ill believe that they dont do that here).

    7. Massage oil choices – they have 3 oil choices. I always go with the Bamboo. Its a must try!

    Areas for improvement:

    1. Parking – although there are a lot of areas outside (along the street) to park your car, I am not confident that its safe to park in the area. Its a very busy area with a lot of foot traffic and it would be better if the spa gets someone to watch over the cars of the customers. Just to be safe.

    2. Foot Spa – therapists should be given further training in foot spa. The foot spa that I got was mediocre. I know that this is not the most availed service of the spa but since this service is being offered to customers as part of the spa services list, the quality of the foot spa should be at par with the quality of the massage.

    Over-all, im very happy with Spa Manoli. I brought one of my friends to this spa and he also felt the same. I would like to congratulate Manolo for operating a high quality spa like Spa Manoli.

    Im so looking forward to go there this weekend.

    Thanks.

    Had a stiff neck after my massage at Spa Manoli. It’s because your beds do not have a hole for the face. That’s basic for a spa bed.

    WORST OF ALL, I LOST MY SIDE MIRROR. It’s not safe to park on the street. Your spa could only accommodate one car but it’s got one car permanently parked in there.

    Sorry, THAT’s MY FIRST AND LAST TIME IN SPA MANOLI.

      Jess Santos,

      I am sorry to hear about your stiff neck, but if you suddenly got a stiff neck due to the bed, why didn’t you mention it to the therapist so that the therapist could have made the stiffness go away. You were right there getting a massage yet you didn’t mention it to the therapist……. but yet, you are big enough to post it here on Manila Touch. Hmm, what where you thinking of right then and there…. The massage or what to post.

      About your side mirror. Did you loose it at Spa Manoli or did you lost your side mirror before already and you just noticed it when you where parked at the spa. There is a big difference, especially if you are trying to blame someone or someplace…

      Hmmm, both points you mentioned are questionable…..

      Thanks anyways.

    For nearly a month, I tried Spa Manoli 4 times already. This alone speaks for itself! Awesome!

    Thanks to an acquaintance who informed me of this spa though I used to pass this place whenever I hear mass in the area but didn’t get the curiousity to try for this major reason- the outdoor (so enclosed) seems suggesting it’s a spa with es (sorry for this impression).

    Thanks for this site and I learned that you have a private toilet and complimentary drinks :)

    If a 300-peso massage won’t hurt much my budget, I’d love to visit the place every week but realizing it’s 1200 a month, bi-monthly would do…. nakakaaddict ang spa na ito :) esp that I could spend more minutes after the massage to really give a very relaxing experience. I so love the interiors, special mention of the black motiff!

    Need i say more? :)

    Was something wrong with water heater in the back? Seems not working last time I was there.

    Can there be more light in shower and locker room? Hard to see. Also, hard to tell if place is clean. Black may be the motif but problem is that one is wondering whether the color and lack of light is hiding dirt and lack of cleaning/maintenance.

    Strange design of toilet — completely open to shower, no privacy.

    Most important — Could massage beds with hole for face be provided. No hole is very uncomfortable. Get neckache and always have to be shifting head position left to right and back.

      Hey Baurus,

      Water Heater in the shower area is working perfectly. Perhaps you have the heater is a cooler setting, which is why you’d think that it may not be working. You can adjust the water heater to your desire.

      The dimmed light is for a reaseon, it’s for the setting of the ambience. The place is clean and if you wish to find out if its clean or not, bring a flash light next time so you can see but the dimmed light is final to set the perfect ambience. Believe me, cleaning and maintenance are done on a daily basis.

      The open shower is American style. There is a private shower availaible, all you need to do is ask, but you never asked.

      The hole in the bed is the least most important part of the spa. The most important is the quality of the massage which you forgot to mention.

      Question: since you have so much complaints on the spa, why didn’t you mention these complaints while you were at the spa. I’ve always ask customer what they thought of their massage and of the place. I don’t remember anyone saying anything bad about the things you mentioned above, all customer say that they all liked the massage and the place and the setting. Since i don’t remember anyone complaining about these things all at the same time and since i always ask how their massage are, then you must have been lying when you said that you liked it rather than complaining during the time that you were there. LIAR!!!!! Get courage rather than voicing your opinion where no one would know who you are.

      Get a Life!!!!

      Hello Guttfil,

      Many customers ask me the same question and what i normally inform them is, you really should not gauge tipping by what other customers. You really should base your tip on how the performance of the therapist duing your massage. Gauge how good his pressure points, his hagod and his stretching. Basically, gauge his over all performance in giving you a satisfactory massage, then tip according to what you thnk is right. Also base your tipping from the price of the massage then take it from them there.

      We all can get different massages from one single therapist and we all may gauge him different, so assess his performance during your massage and tip accordingly.

      Thank you so much.

      Hi Jennifer Semilia,

      I truly don’t want to say that sensual massage is part of a normail basic massage session. Honestly, it is up to the therapist to either provide you a sensual massage that would please you or perhaps a very good quality basic massage that may meet yor epectation and beyond.

      It’s truly up to the massage therapist and we can’t really pin point one therapist to another to privide sensual massage.

      Besides, Jennifer, If you are a female, male therapist really should not be providing you sensual massage. It is against DOH Rules and Reg.

      Can you describe more of the therapist you saw. I do have several therapist that are just the same height and are medium build. Gerald is more masculine than compared to the rest.

    It’s the best! Sad that scrub was not available at the time I visited your spa. I forgot the name of my masseur. So far best spa I have ever tried. No whispering of ES (good thing) but kinda sensual for me ( which is good and normal)

    The place is kinda creepy because of the dark colored wall but very relaxing! The head of this spa ( who looks like a foreign) is very accomodating.

    I love Spa Manoli. I’ve been there several times. I always avail of the an hour and a half massage. Massage quality is quite impressive. The ambiance is cozy and relaxing. The facilities, though lacking as compared to those big spas, are clean. The therapists are polite and professional. The management is warm and accommodating.

    It’s good to note that despite of the proliferation of dirty and garbage spas within the metro, there are quite a few which operate under the principle of clean, quality service. Spa Manoli, being one of them, is worthy of my time, money and loyalty. Try it out and feel the big difference it offers just like what I had experienced.

    I have tried Spa Manoli for at least 5x already and I would say that this is one of the best in town. My first time was really commendable Mr Manolo was very accommodating and toured me around the Spa. The Spa itself is just enough in terms of size and the ambience is great! The music is cool and relaxing and above all the massage is above average. I have tried most of the massuers and I highly recommend Jonathan, with his small gentle hands he can deliver superior quality massage. Gusto ko rin yung coffee flavored oil but others are also ok :-) hehe…It is also clean massage only kaya when you come here you feel safe and focus only the delightful benefits of the massage. Thanks Manolo!

      Hi bsp,

      Sorry for the long delay in answering your question, I believe Manila Touch was down for quite some time.

      The reason why body scrubs are now only done between 5pm up to 8pm, its so that the customer can get the total privacy they deserve for the body scrub.

      No, the therapist who does you body massage is/will be the same therapist who will do your body scrub.

      Hope to see you soon bsp.

      Thanks so much.

      Take care,

    i’d like to thank you for providing me with another great therapist during my last visit there to do the package service. as i commented nakaka-addict magpa-massage sa spa mo. i will surely pay another visit when i get back in town.

    natatawa ako sa mga exchange of comments nyo rito but i commend you for taking time and effort to respond to the feedbacks of your customers whether good or bad. that only shows how serious and concern you are with your customers who are the reason for your existence in the business. ang masasabi ko lang take the positive feedback as inspiration and the negative ones as a challenge. just focus on improving your craft.

    Please read my first response to you AGAIN.

    I do believe that your are putting words into my mouth.
    Please CAREFULLY read it again.

    I never mentioned anything what King’s Point Spa, Splendore or Spada does in their spa. The mere fact that i separated them in a different paragraph is because its as a whole new topic. Why would you intermix paragraph and try to relate them with another paragraph.

    I was only recommending spas that you may be better off with or may be happier with.

    Why on heaven’s earth would you say that they do es? hmmmm? I never mentioned that in my paragraph about them nor did i include es in the same paragraph. Hmmm, do you know this by experience?

    After reading your response, YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR WORDS, YOUR INTENTIONS ARE VERY QUESTIONABLE.

    I was so surprised with the way you explained the reasons for terminating Grace, Bobet and Tata. And much more to know that Bobet was terminated because of masturbating customers. I was not one of those customers he masturbated, I’m not into that, in the very first place.

    You are as malicious as you are when you wrote : “your (SIC) upset because Bobet is no longer there to provide you the extra service and my other therapist refuses to? hmmm.”

    Didn’t you notice that I had mentioned Grace as one of those therapists I’d tried and commended in Spa Manoling? Would that mean that Grace had also masturbated me making in me a person who can be sexually motivated with both sexes?

    Bobet’s massage was good and I was even told that you actually pirated him from another spa somewhere in QC. You won’t pirate somebody who’s not good, don’t you? Oh yes, I had also tried Joey whom I know also left your spa for some valid reasons. And to put things in order, please take note that Joey didn’t masturbate me.

    And did I read it right that you were promoting Kingspoint, Spada and Splendore Spas as massage parlors with XS? What a way to put down your competitors!

    I WOULD’T WONDER WHY THE TURN-OVER OF YOUR THERAPISTS ARE JUST SO QUICK (considering that you are barely a year or so in the spa industry). You must welcome customer complaints as something helpful for you to improve your facilities and service. Not to put malice on it.

      @ Dennis,

      Please read the passages again from my first response to you.

      I never mentioned that Grace was terminated. I will mention again, Grace decided to leave because she was not popular at the spa. She was never requested enough nor did she have enough massages to profit from them.

      Anybody can always mention Grace in their blog, to be safe…. let alone if Dennis is your real actual name. What is your real name so i can look you up in our documentations and see if you truly did try Grace. R – – – is that you? R is the only one who actually tried Joey, Bobet and Grace and Tata. R is the only one who actually knows Joey, Grace and Tata from the beginning.

      Let me give you a background about Bobet. No, I did not pirated Bobet from Ngiyan. I have invited him to Spa Manoli but he refuses to work at spa manoli because Joey was working there and Bobet refuses to work with Joey again. Joey and Bobet are from Ngiyan. Yes Joey is from Ngiyan also. Bobet had it out with the owner at Ngiyan and had left his work there because of their differences. When Bobet found out that Joey is no longer at Spa Mnoli, he texted me asking if he can work with me. I accepted him, until i found out what he was doing in my spa, which i decided to allow him to continue doing massages but i lecture him about not doing es, because he said he’s a new man and no longer does es. Until there was a point that Bobet was habitual with his absence and i finally let him go due to his absences. I actually didn’t let him go because of his es, but i let him go because of his absent.

      Yes, Joey worked with me and i truly liked Joey’s performance. After 2011’s Holy Week and after him being off for 3 days, Joey never came back to work, only to find out that he got his girlfriend pregnant and didn’t wanted to go back to work because people were looking for him at Spa Manoli. I never mentioned Joey on my response to you, nor did i mention that me jerked you off. Why would in heaven’s name would you mention it and bring it up. Hmmmmm? Why would it cross your mind?

      Mind you, after letting Bobet go with the one chance that i had and after Joey abandoned work, these 2 boys are insisting to return back to Spa Manoli. Bobet and Joey, to this date, texts me to return back to work.

      Tata previously abandoned work because he wanted to spend a week in Bulacan with barkada. I took him back because he said he needed income, until he became careless with his attitude and attendance.

      Turn over in spas are always high and that is natural. Therapist are always looking for bigger opportunity and more money. But why would they try and want to come back to me? They know i run a clean spa and they know i run a tight shift. They know i want cleanliness and they know that i would protect them over customers. They know i provide then with compensation so they wouldn’t have to do es. They know that i give good benefits and perks that of other spas. They know that my commission schemes beats the rest. They know that they can make an abundance of profit by working hard and working on the quality of service they provide without providing es. They know that if they work hard, that they’re hard earned money is worth every effort they put out because they know how much they are worth at Spa Manoli.

      I am not afraid to be direct with customer in blogs or in person because i know how much we give to customers,. For those who truly appreciate what we do for them and how we provide the quality service. For those who lacks appreciation of my employees hard earn peso, you are to experience my wrath and will feel my wrath because i know that i and my employees at Spa Manoli make every effort that you, the good customers, are provided with excellent service.

      Thank you.

      Now, world peace.

      You have my apologies for being rude and direct at you. Not to you or with you but at you.

      Thank you for your wonderful comment.

      Actually, we do serve coffee or tea in our lounge area downstairs.Where you can chill in a living room type atmosphere or in the dry garden where you can enjoy the kois and the water fall.

      We used to serve drinks upstairs and created a place where customers can socialize and be merry, but other and most customers complained of the noise and all the laughter and customers who’s having a massage were having a difficult time concentrating on the good massage that they are having because of the noise. That is why the socializing was limited downstairs.

      Please on your next visit, let me know if you’d like a drink before or after your massage and i would be more that happy to serve it to you in our lounge area…

      See you soon.

      @Dennis –

      Hello Dennis,

      Please let me dissect your comment:

      With Grace – Grace was not very popular at the spa. We have agreed and decided that she should move on to a better spa where she would actually have work done and where she would be more of a use. Grace was not known or not popular at all at Spa Manoli. Grace left last July 2011 and you just now realized that she’s gone? hmmm.

      With Bobet – I had to let Bobet go because Bobet masturbated customers in the spa. Even though Bobet had a lot of customers and customers actually lined up for him, I had to let him go because he was giving Spa Manoli a bad reputation of a spa that provides extra service. I would rather suffer with no customers rather than being known for a spa that has a therapist that masturbated them. Would this be the reason why your upset because Bobet is no longer there to provide you the extra service and my other therapist refuses to? hmmm.

      With Tata – I also had to let Tata go because of his attitude and his poor attendance record. Tata would rather hang out with barkada rather than earn money to support his family. I ran into some problem with Tata because of his attitude and him starting to be a menace with his attendance. I let Tata go back in June.

      As far as you not coming to spa manoli because of the therapist, it’s very obvious that you hardly come to the spa, because Grace, Bobet and Tata were let go back in June, July and August and you are just now realizing this, it’s obvious that you haven’t tried other Therapist like Jonathan, who is consistent with his quality massage. Roi with his accentuate massage. Bryan, who is a true self taught therapist, who’s routine is completely and perfectly different that any other routine. TJ, who’s technical knowledge in massage makes him hard to pass up. Mark, who’s my youngest therapist who’s massage has been practiced since he was 16. Gerald who came in highly recommend from Manila Touch, who’s added such good points for Spa Manoli. And Danny, who has shown excellent techniques right from the beginning. IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT YOU NEVER VISIT SPA MANOLI AT ALL TO TRY THESE PERFECT THERAPISTS AND would just leave a comment without any experience.

      As far as the spa being too small and that you hardly could breath – hmmm, to see is to believe. I am not going to defend the spa with comments that are just not true.

      Well Dennis, i hope that you find your perfect spa that you would be happy and comfortable in. May i suggest Kings Point Spa or Splendore or Spada for you.

      I tell you what. Since you say that you are a die hard customer of Bobet – If you can tell me what Bobet is good on with his massage, I will personally pay for your massage with a spa of your choice. You have to be really specify. With Bobet’s massage, what is that one technique that he has that customers identify that makes him really good (besides masturbating customers, ok?).

      Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your comments.

    On the curtains, please do kindly ask the therapist to close the thicker curtains. There are 2 different sets of curtains hanged. A thinner curtain is used for a/c circulation and a thicker curtain is for more dimmed and private massage. But fyi, there is a much thicker curtain after the thin curtains.

    I beg to disagree with Rick on all points. The place is cozy, not cramped or small. The bed area was spacious enough and the linens were definitely not old or dirty even. I was impressed with how the place was conceptualized too. The massage itself, was superb. My masseur had nice even strokes and really knew what he was doing. Minor complaint though, the curtains were a bit too thin, but overall, it was a great experience.

      Hello Rick,

      I am terribly sorry to hear your negative feedback, but funny, which made me so curious. Every thing you’ve mentioned above, which you’ve counter reacted on, are everything we specifically concentrate on because all of what you mentioned is what matters most to me:

      -Our massage rooms can fit 2 therapist at the same time
      -Urinal are open in the main wet area, but you didn’t mention the other 2 restroom that are private
      -Linens are mostly concentrated on and are always fresh because those are the items that touches the customer’s body, which are only 6months old
      -Massage service is highly concentrated on because that is the service that customers come back for

      I believe something happened to you personally while your at the spa which made you react and believed that things turned out wrong blamed it on us. Which you’ve commented on everything that we are doing perfect, which you took time to specifically point out, one by one.

      Thanks. Hope you’d try us again and not expect the extra service as you did the first time.

      Best Regards,

        Hi Rick,

        I got some facts so that the readers would not consider your statements as true:

        the massuers are humble
        the spa is 3300 sq. meters big
        we have 10 rooms and each rooms are 8×6.5 sq. ft
        3 bathrooms, 1 open and 2 private
        linens are only 5-6 months old, the grey sheet is a very silky feel to the body
        the solid black cover sheet is beautiful
        the massage – each massuer has a different routine and has a different touch, so that each customer has the choice of different style of massage each visit

        Thank you.

        Best,

        Manolo

      Hi Jim,

      Thank you so much for your inquiry.

      We don’t have a specific rate for couples. Our massage is Php300 per person and the massage last over an hour. We do have a couple’s room that is place privately in the spa.

      Hope you’d come and give us a try.

      See you soon.

      Hello Mike,

      Thank you so much for your nice comment…

      Question: I shall do as you have suggested as far as further enhancing one of my massuer’s knowledge in providing a good massage. May i ask who are we speaking of? First name initial will suffice.

      I shall await your return.

      Take good care and see you soon.

    @Jetro…. Friends or no friends of Manoling (whoever Manoling is), i tried Spa Manoli at wala akong masabi kung hindi respetohin ang spa. Very clean ang masahe at ang mga masahista. Binablik nang Spa Manoli ang quality massage at ang clean massage. Yung nabpapamasahe ako, wala akong maisip kung di walang gawing masama at ienjoy ang quality massage.

    Mga kapatid – Malinis ang Spa Manoli at walang malisya.

    Binalik nila ang clean quality massage at ang malinis na spa.
    Taga Makati and it’s worth the distance to enjoy a good massage na wala akong aalahanin na extra service.

    Meron pa naman kaming matino na tao na ang gusto lang ay magaling na masahe.

    Try Jonathan, Bobet and Grace – very good masahistas.

    Pag nag comment na ang mga sister kong matataray maniniwala ako sa mga illusion ninyo. baka co-buss. kayo ni manoling… Good day. O kaya masyadong malayo kaya walang pumupunta. Mag branch ka dito sa makati o las pinas para ka dumuging.

    I tried Spa Manoli and i was impressed.

    I love a good quality massage and Spa Manoli has provided the best massage i’ve ever experienced. The Spa has a very nice ambiance, very serene, very homey. I love the atmosphere and the super friendly staff.

    I definitely will recommend Spa Manoli who wants a great quality massage. Go and try it for yourself. You are bound to go back, at least I know I will.

    If you want to feel like your swaying in the evening calm, try Spa Manoli! Good ambiance, good therapists, quality massage and their prices were affordable too. =)
