Overall, we loved our stay at Diamante K. The cabin was beautiful and rustic, we loved our balcony and ocean view. Waking up listening to the birds and ocean was magical. The beds were super comfy and the bug nets were perfects. Breakfast was wonderful and we ate at the restaurant onsite a number of times (get the grilled octopus and the empanadas!) The ONE incredibly disappointing thing worth mention were the massages my husband and I got. I am not a massage newbie, nor a massage snob and my expectations for bodywork received while abroad is generally pretty low. I used to be a massage therapist and currently own a boutique day spa where I oversee 15 licensed massage therapists. The Massage therapist we ended up with (we saw her back to back) was....very poorly trained. Maybe even no training. She did the same stroke for 2o minutes on the back, seemed to have no knowledge of muscular anatomy and was certainly giving every one of her clients the same massage. It was definitely a "just enjoy this for what it is" hour. Although that was even hard because there was so much sand in the massage oil it could've been sold as an exfoliation. She totally should've taken a towel to wipe away the sand before beginning. (also, I get that we were on the beach and sand is hard to control...) She was perfectly nice and polite but it was definitely not work the $75 per hour massage we paid. Maybe a $10 beach massage at best. Stay there, but skip the massage.
