Michael VanReel - Jamaican Masseur

A good product/service truly sells itself! In this case, it is from a professional Jamaican masseur.

One of my most dedicated website fans, Cynthia from the USA, was first treated by Michael Vanreel (working from the Coyaba Beach Resort) approximately 14 years ago.

Such was the quality of his service that she now makes it a part of her vacation schedule every time she visits Jamaica, usually twice per year.

Cynthia shared this email (below) with us and we felt it fit to share with you and all my other website visitors.

If he created such a big impression on a client (tourist) then he certainly deserves our recognition here too - wouldn't you say?

Anyway, away with my pre-amble, here is the email from Cynthia ...

I have been coming to Jamaica and staying at my favorite resort – Coyaba Beach Resort in Montego Bay since November, 2000 - I usually stay for a week twice a year May/November.

As a result, I have been a client of Michael's for all these years and it always is the highlight of my vacation to receive a soothing massage to help me unwind from the stress of work back home in Chicago, Illinois.

Michael creates a very relaxing atmosphere for his clients including dim lighting, soothing scents, music and more.

He also has excellent interpersonal skills and can create a rapport with his clients which helps put them as ease during a treatment. He is also ready to answer any questions that the client may have during a massage.

As a result, each individual is ensured a great experience customized to their personal needs. He also keeps himself educated and aware of new techniques in the industry – his “hot stone” massages are to die for!

I totally appreciate massages because I know they are great for de-stressing, staying healthy, reducing hypertension and of course they boost your immune system.

There are many types of massages that Michael provides i.e. Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Island Aromatherapy, etc.

Also, what is so very lovely is that you have several locations on the hotel's property to chose from for your massage.

There is always my favorite, Coyaba’s private dock or perhaps a beach side massage and if you prefer, you could be inside your own room or the indoor massage room.


Keep up the great work Michael VanReel! And thanks for taking time to share the experience Cynthia!

Michael VanReel a great Masseuse
by: Jessica Rivero

Michael has a winning personality, a great sense of humor, and an excellent work ethic. His massages are one of the best you will ever have. You have not fully enjoyed Jamaica until you have experienced one of his massages. Thank you Michael!

Simply amazing
by: David & Lourie

We stayed at the Zoetry hotel and had the most relaxing foot treatment, followed by a life changing body massage that awakened the senses and melted all the stress and tension away. Michael has, as cliche as it sounds, very gifted magical hands and a very warm and fun personality.I was beyond satisfied and can't wait to book another session!

Best Massage Ever
by: Elaine Scandale

I like to get massages about every other back home in the states, because I hold all my stress in my neck. I usually have so many knots, that the masseuse can never get they to loosen up. I decided to book a massage on vacation, not knowing Michaels reputation. It was the best massage I have ever gotten. He did all my pressure points and was able to loosen up my knots. If anyone is ever visiting Montago Bay, make sure you look him up. Thank you again Michaeloc

The best Masseuse ever
by: Anonymous

Micheal is simply the best. I cannot allow anyone else to give me a massage because somehow I don't think they can give me the peace of mind, body and soul that I experienced when Michael gives me a massage. Thanks Michael I can't wait to get another full body.

Made my appointment
by: Cynthia Savoy

I can't thank you enough for posting this recommendation. I've been here in Jamaica for over a month and have been planning to get a massage. I really wanted a male masseuse but have been having a hard time finding one. I made my appointment with Michael and will be experiencing my lil slice of heaven tomorrow. Smiles!

Thanks again, and thanks to Wellesley for providing this forum for us all to share.
