I went to this place already several times. Really good. They advertise in Clarin. They charge $60 for a 1 hour session (in fact the massage itself will be around 30 minutes). A BJ will be an extra $40, "participacion" $60.
Lately I had a very good massage by a certain Tamara and a good massage by Aldana, a beautiful and cute morocha from Salta with silk skin. She told me that most of her clients opt for participacion. Whether that is marketing talk or not, I could understand; she has the right body for it !
Unfortunately another morochita, called Brisa is no longer working there. Word has it that she went to Spain. Still, you can watch her (under the same name) as a hotel maid on www.dirtylatinamaid.com

I am more of a massage guy, so I used to frequent these massage parlors before I upgraded to apartments. They basically have the same rates for "additional services" which are P30 for BJ and P50-P60 for FS. In most cases handjobs or "relax manual" are already included in the rates, but it will surely make your return engamement more fulfilling if you give your chica some propina for the extra effort.

1.) Geisha - Tel. 4373-7500, Callao 441 2nd flr-C

I have never been here before so I thought I would check it out. The facilities are really nice, their reception looks so professional I thought I was in the wrong place. Here is their website. Http: / www. Croixspa. Com. Ar /

I went without an appointment and the receptionist (she was maybe a 7.5) escorted me to a private room and collected the 80 pesos for the hour, which includes a relax manual, and then in came Alejandra (an 8.5) Alejandra is 23 years old, 5"4' and maybe 105 lbs. Nice perky c-cup tits, and an all around perfect body. Her face is cute. Kind of a cross between Penelope cruz and Paris Hilton. Her massage was good but not quite outstanding. She charges 50 pesos for taking her clothes off, 70 for CBJ, and 100 for sex. I was really turned on so I decided to opt for sex. The massage table was one of the best I have ever seen, about a meter wide and very comfortable so massage table sex was better than usual.

She then took me to the shower and we chatted and showered together. I think that is their policy so that you know that the girls arent going through your belongings while your in the shower. All in all it was a very good experience.

Facilities: 9.5

Massage: 7

Sex: 8

Face: 8.5

Body: 10

Attitude: 8.5

Cost: $80/ hr for massage and relax, the rest is "aparte"

WIR? The place for sure, the girl. Most likely but I will try a few other girls first just to see what else they got.

Do you get to pick the girl? Looks like a good afternoon stop. BBJTC or CIM?If you don't have an appointment I don't think they do the lineup thing. CBJ = covered blow job. So to answer your second question, no. Keep in mind that each girl has her own secondary services for sale, so I don't know what the others are offering. Its kind of an upscale place. The girl I got had a fresh pedicure and expensive perfume on. She wouldn't even let me nut on her tits, but she was hot enough that it didnt really bother me too much.

Wow, from the site this place looks amazing. I too am a massage man, enjoying a pampering every now and then. Any idea how it compares to Colmegna? I've heard good things about both, but obviously the web site don't show girls. Any info would be appreciated!

It really is a very nice place. It's clean, has a nice atmosphere and most of the girls are quite pretty. I suggest that if you go, though, you avoid at all costs the times when the after-work crowd would tend to gather because the pickings will be rather slim. Colmenga is more of a "traditional" spa and "extras" may or may not be on the menu. I'm still a huge fan of Brisa Masajes (Esmerelda near the corner of Cordoba) and miss it terribly now that I'm back in Europe. I had two of the **astoundingly** good fucks there: once with Yuliana and once with Camila.

I checked the local board for reports on Croix. My Spanish is pretty rotten but I am sure that many of the posts said that most of the girls have a bad attitude and / or are pretty mechanical. I was interested in trying it. But I think now I'll wait until I see some more reports here in English.

If you go remember to take the floor info (4°). You have to push a buzzer to be let in.

I wouldn't be surprised. Independent providers usually are nicer since they live strictly off your business and word of mouth, whereas in big spas or organizations they probably don't make as much or could be resentful about the management. Still, if the photos from the site are to be believed, I still think it might be worth a trip. Will let you know what it's like when I get to visit.

Not a bad deal, nice place. Had Paola, prettier with her clothes on than off, no line up she just came into the room. 80 pesos includes manual release. Started me at 100 pesos for oral and 150 for sex. Told her there was an apartment across the street where I can fuck a couple girls for less, so her prices came down to 70/100 still wasn't interested so I told her no just the massage. Then she rolled me over and started working on my johnson and I couldn't quiet make it (I think it's a conspiracy, when I got close she slowed down) so I ended up banging her anyway to finish. Worth it for 80 if your one of Exons cocksukers that dig handjobs, but it's rare that I can get a shot on goal that way. When I want a massage I gotta start wearing shorts or something cause once they start playing with my dick I spend too much money.

Place was really nice though, if you seriously just want a jacuzzi, sauna and massage on the weekend call ahead because they turn all the hot stuff off on the weekend and it needs to warm up.

As usuall the receptionista was the hottest girl in the the place.

Went to Croix and asked for Maia. Gone. Oh well. I asked for the girl with the best hands and was told Lorena. There are dozens of girls who work there so it's really hit or miss. This one was cute, with a nice, thin, firm body. If you like big mounds, subtract 1 from body score. Had an above average massage from her, and since I was feeling pretty frisky at the end, so asked for the complete service. This is the interesting part. She mounts me, reverse cowgirl, and starts humping, squirming and squeezing me while playing with my balls and fingering me. Does this sound like fun to you? Believer me, it was awesome.

Croix Vip - Maipu 378 Piso 3,4,

- 80P Entrance.

- Note that the entrance fee included the use of a sauna OR steam room - which were subject to availability. It also included the massage itself.

- The place consists of:

- 4 floors with 13 massage rooms in total.

- 2 sauna rooms - on two separate floors.

- 2 steam rooms - on two separate floors.

- Note that the above info was given by the chica I was with and may be slightly in error do to her rapid Spanish and my tired state.

- The chica I chose quoted the following prices for extra services - claiming they're standard with all the girls. I remarked it would be nice to see them listed on a card like the drink prices were.

- 50P to take off her outerwear.

- 80P for a covered blowjob.

- 100P for (convencional only?) Sex.

- When I asked she explained that the last three prices are not separate. Meaning that if I'd told her right away that I wanted sex I could have had a covered blowjob and covered sex for 180P total - including the entrance fee.

Now for a narrative account of my visit:

I was in Orleans Cafe a few nights ago and an older Porteño told me of Croix. He was very hush hush about it and told me not to tell too many extranjeros about it as they (Croix or the Porteños that go there) wouldn't like the fact that he'd told me. He said it consisted of five floors and about fifty girls and was very nice; upscale. I thanked him kindly and said I'd pray to God that he enjoy a long life (of fucking) if it turned out I liked the place. Oh and he only gave me the phone number - because he'd long ago forgotten the actual address.

This is my third time in Buenos Aires - having made two eighteen day trips in 06. So I thought, "Damn! It's taken me till now to find out about this place?" Of course I wasted no time calling and, when I asked for the address, was told I needed to make an appointment. A name or two were mentioned but I didn't want to reserve a chica sight-unseen so I said I'd call back.

Later I did a search on the forum here and, obviously, found this post - which put me onto the fact that this "secret place," had a website. So, equipped with the address I went there last night. I arrived at about 6 PM, buzzed, went up to Piso 4, and was sent to Piso 3 - where a pretty receptionist awaited me.

Heheh. Someone in this thread remarked how the receptionist, of course, was the hottest girl in the place. Well the chica that greeted me was certainly pretty but not a knockout or even close to it. I had high expectations of having a hard time choosing between the multitude of hotties that waited inside. Doh! Doh! Doh!

It was 6:10 when she checked her computer and remarked that there were two chicas free at that time. I asked if there'd be more by, say, 7 o'clock. She scanned the system again and said there'd be five. This sounded better to me - though of course not anything close to what I hoped / imagined.

With nearly an hour to kill I had time to enjoy a relaxing sauna and steambath - or so I thought. This is when I found out that it was either / or and based upon availability. Hence the benefit of at least booking one or the other before heading over. Doh!

I'd really wanted a sauna but only a steam room was available. I was shown to it and informed the chicas would be presented to me at 7 o'clock. At that moment we were standing in a somewhat large room with a glass walled modern shower (hand wand equipped); and clothing rack; a chair; and a cabinet - on top of which were the various toiletries one would need. Being my first visit to this Spa - having been to Finlandia and Colmega - I was a bit confused at this point. I didn't see a secure place to keep my wallet and Palm. It was then that I found out the entire room was mine till 7 o'clock - and was shown the small steam room in the corner that, I was told, would need ten to fifteen minutes to heat up. The size of the private room surprised me - as did the fact there was no lock or latch of any kind on its door. When I pointed this out I was assured that no one would enter it without knocking. Hmmm.

While the receptionist went for my complimentary 7-Up I got undressed and hid my wallet. A ZipLock sandwich bag would have come in handy here to keep my valuables with me without them getting soggy. As it was the window in the door to the steam room was fogged up so there was no way to watch out for them while getting steamed.

Sitting in the steamroom it became obvious that more than fifteen minutes would be needed before it got to even a warm temperature. So by half past the hour I decided to hell with it and instead took a nice long shower - which was nearly as good, steam wise, as the steamroom but wonderfully hot.

At 6:50 the alarm I'd set on my Palm went off and I dried off and wrapped up in the velcro-equipped waist towel. The receptionist must have heard it too and entered, after knocking, to show me to the massage room next door. I gathered all my belongings and, in two trips, shuffled them to that room and laid them out again. A bit of a bother that but oh well.

The massage room was large and had its own glass walled shower as well. It also had its own chair and coat rack - but no actual clothing rack like the steamroom had had. You know, the kind with special hangers for pants and such. I´d found that to be a nice touch. The massage table was, I think, larger than most I'd seen before. I'm not big on Pay2Play massage places though so maybe it was normal size for Buenos Aires.

In short order the receptionist inquired as to whether I was ready for the girls. After about five minutes the first of three showed herself. After ten I'd seen all three - not the five I'd expected. None really did it for me so I asked if that was all. I was told yes and so asked whether there were girls free on other floors. I was told yes and waited for them to arrive. I guess maybe five minutes later one more girl presented herself. She, like three of the four I met, was a big girl. Not so much fat as VERY full bodied. Not the type I'd normally pick but she had very nice eyes and a sweet smile that I thought would look nice going down on me.

So now it's five after seven - fifteen minutes since I was moved from the steamroom to the massage room - and the massage began. I was made to lay down on my stomach, towel removed, and she kept her robe on. I didn't really care right then as its hard to see anything when the most comfortable position, face down on a massage table, is looking at the floor through the face hole.

I don't get many massages so I can´t really say how it rated. Of course, as George Costanza would tell you, any pair of hands rubbing you down feels good. For me though, it didn't move.

After thirty minutes she started repeating the massage so it was up to me, I guessed, to bring up the extras. I'd spent a good deal of time during the massage contemplating what I should tip if it turned out the blowjob would be covered (and therefore unwanted) and only a handjob was given. Many factors went into my calculations: what I knew the cost of full service (covered and uncovered) was at a multitude of Departamento Privados - cheap and nasty and high end - and Madonna's (my favorite bar). There was also an amusing incident at reception that complicated my calculations...

When I pulled out a 100 Peso bill to pay the 80P entrance the receptionist asked if I had 30P more as she could then give me 50P as change. Well I had another 30P but it was all in small bills which I am loathe to part with easily - except when paying taxi drivers. So instead I pulled out two 20P bills and asked, "¿Tiene diez pesos?" Note that I didn't say 10P MORE change - to add to the 50P she had ready - as I assumed she was following my calculations. (100P + 40P - 50P - 10P = 80P) No. She wasn't following. She said yes as she picked up the 140P and gave the 10P she dug out of the till to me as change - completing the transaction with a simple, sweetly delivered "Gracias,"

Doh! She thought I was adding a 50P tip!? Just how upscale was this place? (Remember at this point I had not been past reception and so didn't know exactly what awaited me). For her to assume a 50P tip without blinking or breaking into a big grin just how upscale was this place? Did only insanely rich locals come here? In short order I corrected the error and didn't detect any change in her professionally sweet treatment of me.

So back to the massage:

As I turned over I remarked to her that it was my first time here. Third time in Buenos Aires but first time in Croix. I added to that that I'd been to various departamentos and bars. So I put her on notice that I was not a fresh-off-the-plane first time tourist and waited for her prices - which have been cited above. At this point she´d already been jacking me and, clearly, I was enjoying that. She had not taken off her robe though. Before long, upon hearing her prices and assurances that they were the norm, it became clear that I´d stopped enjoying the jacking. Fifty pesos to remove her robe? She did, by the way, do so as she quoted that figure - but kept her bra and panties on. SHOCK! Actually I think it was at this point that mini me lost interest. Not coincidentally, her sweet smile was gone too. So with ten minutes remaining to the hour I told her to put her robe back on. At that she remarked that a 50P tip was expected as she had taken it off. Ha ha! What a joker. I told her that I wasn´t paying 50P to see her naked when I could go to any number of bars and see chicas nearly naked for less than that. She pointed out that Croix was not a bar; was distinctly different. It certainly is.

Considering and mentioning the nice, long massage I informed her I would give her a 40P tip for it anyway and got up to dress. She didn´t fuss about the 10P but got it anyway as I´d have had to use my precious small bills to make 40P so instead handed her a 50P note. Doh!

Now all that remained was the awkwardness of passing the receptionist without tipping her. I had thought to do so, tip her, but didn´t want to offend her with a mere 10P - a tip that, almost anywhere else in Buenos Aires except the tourist traps, would have been happily accepted. As it turned out she inquired about how everything went so we did wind up chatting. Then, as I paused at the door, she asked what was wrong - seeing that I was clearly preoccupied with something. It was then I asked if it would offend her if I gave her a 10P tip. (In my mind I had visions of filthy rich Porteños tipping with 50s and 100s - considering the ease with which she´d accepted what she´d taken to be my offer of a 50P tip upon arriving). She assured me, repeatedly and pleasantly, that no tip was needed or expected. Huh?

At that I was out of there and won´t likely return. As I already mentioned I am not really a fan of Pay2Play massage places. Probably mainly because of the above mentioned confusion regarding costs. It´s so much nicer to know up front, as one does at departamentos, exactly what´s coming and for how much. Of course I could have interviewed the girl before starting the session but, well, I was tired and put off balance, I suppose, by the less than stellar line up.

So, for 130P, I found out first hand that I had not been missing anything special during my previous two trips. For me, if I want a relaxing massage and sauna and steambath I´ll go to Finlandia. There, for 46P or so you can pass as many hours as you like moving about between the cold and not-so-cold pools; the sauna and steam rooms. You can lounge about and read and, at your appointed time, enjoy the included 30 minute professional massage - likely from a man. Whether it moves or not is up to you two.

If I want sex I´ll continue to go to my favorite places where the pricing is, for the most part, up front.

I went to Croix Vip recently on a Saturday afternoon. The place was still kinda busy. I selected a good looking morocha called Bibiana or something like that. Well, bad choice. Lousy massage. Lousy attitude. Lousy hand job. 80 pesos wasted. I'd say forget about this place.

There are such great massage parlors in BA but I had a pathetically bad experience with Paola from Croix. The spa was very nice and the receptionist was particularly friendly. The rooms are accessed through an asian / tropical designed hallway and the masseuse is to escort clients to the showers as to not run into other clients. Paola was OK upon introduction and in the public areas but as a previous post quoted from the local's board, very mechanical and cold in the room. The other draw back was the constant upsell. I did conceed to pay for some clothes to come off and was very disappointed with her saggy chest. Maybe that had something to do with her shitty disposition.

Went on Sunday, paid the 100 p at the door and asked for the roundup. Picked a busty morocha Gisella. She slathered on the cream, sang (she actually had a voice) chatted away constantly and 20 minutes in gave "la vuelta" and her menu starting at 80 p for dropping the top, up to 120 for FS. She came down grudgingly to 50 p but by that time I'd lost interest. Settled for the pre-paid relax. Even the other head wasn't going for it. Totally uninspiring. Called time out, showered and fled. No propina. Definitely avoid this one.

Proving once again "Never on Sunday".

(This is a report on the facility, not a particular girl.

Maipú 378 piso 4

http://www.croixspa.com.ar/

I have been here now a total of 3 times but the first time was just a look see. The place is much, much nicer than any similar place I have been to here. The base price is 130 pesos per hour. I think that includes "relax". The extras start at 80 pesos and I think you have to pay that 80 pesos if you want the girl to remove her clothes.

For some reason the first time I was there, for a look see, a lot of the girls were wandering around but I don't think that's typical. In any event the ones I saw were very attractive.

I've seen three rooms; two were spacious and very nice. The third wasn't too much larger than the typical room at other such places but still much nicer. One of the nicer rooms I was in had a floor to ceiling water fall! I think that the lighting and volume of the music can be adjusted in all rooms. Of the two rooms I actually used one had a camilla significantly wider and lower than the standard camilla - but did not have the standard hole for your face. The other room had a camilla maybe slightly wider and lower than the standard but did have a face hole. No other furniture in the three rooms that I saw.

All rooms have their own shower. That's a touch I really like. And the bottoms of the two showers I have used there are non-slip. (Of course it's sort of hard to fall in a shower stall anyway. If you shower before and after your massage you will receive a clean towel each time.

Music is piped in, so no opportunity to take your own CD so far as I could tell.

I was told that the girls get nothing unless you purchase one of their options. The base fee of 130 pesos you give to the receptionist. If you purchase an optional level of service you pay that fee directly to the girl.

On a price-performance basis, for me, this is the best bargain I have found here in massage spa type places. (Remember that I am talking only about the facility. You may feel differently about YOUR experience with a SPECIFIC chica.

If you do a search for Agustina you will find other reports on this girl now at Croix but previously at other establishments. But if you want to schedule an appointment with her at Croix be sure to use the name Virginia because there is another girl working there called Agustina.

Virginia is known for both her non-erotic and erotic massages. In my somewhat limited experience she provides the best erotic massage I've had in BsAs or anywhere else in the world. You may have to tell her that you want an erotic massage and be specific about where your erogenous zones are. To the best of my knowledge no BN and no BBBJ.

This place opens on the weekend (Sat and Sun)

I have never been any massage parlors in other countries. But I like this place. It is pretty clean. There is a shower inside room.

One hour massage is 130 peso. Sex is additional 160 peso or 150 peso. For me, this is better than apartment. For a few extra peso, I am in a much better environment. Girls are more attractive.

I picked Mayra twice. She provided DFK, CBJ. Let me finger her pussy and culo. Her massage is relax, not hard.

WARNING!

Do not go to Croix spa.

A friend e-mailed them with an inquiry and their response is below.

He showed up and made sure before paying that it included a manual relax and was assured of it. After he paid, the masseuse entered the room and demanded an additional 150ad. My friend left in disgust after a 20 minute massage empty handed and totally dissatisfied.

Hi

Our rates are $130 (pesos) the hour and includes a manual relax. Further.

Information is not available. We recommend previous reservations, you can.

I hadn't been to this place before so decided to check it out. The address is Maipu 378. 4393-8651. Facilities on multiple floors covering a huge total floor space. No apartment numbers, the spa appears to take up the entire floor on each level.

I was told to go to the 4th floor. Impressive entrance with a professional looking receptionist sitting behind a desk. I paid the 130 pesos/hour entrance fee which I was told included a manual relax. Then the receptionist escorted me to a room and said to wait for the line-up. The room was excellent and looked new. Stone finishings, large massage table, clothes rack, and modern walk-in shower with glass doors. Nicest massage room I have seen in BA. Although I found out later there were larger rooms at the same price but you have to ask for them. Use of a jacuzzi before massage is also included but it is not always available and you need to reserve it ahead of time.

There were 6 girls in the line-up. All well-dressed in stylish clothes, nothing too revealing. Each girl came in the room for just a few seconds to say her name. Very quick. From what I could see they all looked good. I picked a girl named Karin, mid-twenties blond with a large chest. By the time the massage started it was about 15 minutes into the hour. Decent massage. Just slightly sensual near the end. After about a half hour of massage she said to turn over and soon explained the options: 100 pesos for lingerie with no touching, 130 oral and 150 conventional. I was not interested in the last two, and 100 pesos seemed ridiculous just to see her in lingerie but with no touching. I decided none of the above, just the manual relax. She stroked me for awhile and thus it appeared it was in fact included in the 130 pesos entrance fee. I decided not to cum and had her do a part sensual and upper leg massage to run out the clock. Hmmmm. Needed some time to process the experience before reaching any conclusions. Though the session was not stellar, a repeat visit was not out of the question (see next post).

I made a second visit here, not so much by choice as because it was the only number to pick up on a Sunday afternoon. I was informed there were 5-6 chicas available. This time I was told to go to the second floor.

The 2nd floor entrance is nothing like the 4th floor, just a bare hallway with a computer on a ledge. A different lady from the previous visit met me in the entrance and requested payment. Then escorted me to a room somewhat similar to the one I had before but the shower was not as nice. Soon 3 different chicas in turn introduced themselves. Not quite the 5-6 I was told earlier. As before they were all attractive and dressed well. I picked Mia, an early-twenties blond with a large chest who showed a little more spunk / interest than the other two. I also thought she looked hot. Same routine as before. Her sensual teasing near the end was better than the other girl I had. Things were looking "up". But on the flip things turned cold when I learned the relax was not included in the entrance fee. She said she worked for tips. The minimum for that would be 100 pesos, with higher priced options similar to before. For a second I thought about bailing, but then realized it was Sunday and other options were limited. With some effort, I was successful in getting her to agree to 50 pesos. She provided a manual relax with her clothes on, though pulled her top down just slightly to reveal some boob. She got the job done and I cleaned up in the shower. Another "fair" experience at Croix Spa.

There are better massage options in BA, but I will keep this place on my list because it has a high "style" factor not found elsewhere: stylish rooms and attractive well-dressed women. I like this combination. They just need to be consistent in their pricing and more sensual in their service.

Based on my two visits and Mariodario's post below, I recommend that you always verify the relax is included in the entrance fee, BOTH with the receptionist before paying, AND with the chica before you undress for the massage.

BTW Sinistra. Just kidding about the receptionist, I'm not planning to ask her out. She's all yours!

Although it does occur to me, this place might have good potential for meeting women for outside dates. Working dates I mean. The women here struck me as having a more independant, entrepreneurial nature looking to make some good money in an upscale spa. This leads me to think they may be open to an outside date if the chemistry and compensation are right. This could also prove cost-effective compared to a Madahos chica for example, in that the women at Croix are probably not making more than 100-150 pesos per hour on average. An offer of a night on the town for 600 pesos might be well-received with some of them.

Although it does occur to me, this place might have good potential for meeting women for outside dates. I've already done it. About a year ago there was a totally smokin' pampita that I met there and we totally hit it off—just a beautiful girl with an obvious desire to get out of the business, meet some rich guy and live the good life. We went out several times, at first for 500 pesos for dinner and a evening, but then she wanted to be my girlfriend. Like I said, she was one of the hottest girls ever, but this wasn't going to be some kind of Pretty Woman scenario. At heart she still was a girl from the Provincia, with a low-class accent and unrefined manners. There's no way I could have introduced her to my friends.

Wow, that really makes me sound like an a**hole, doesn't it?

I actually prefer to pay them. It lets them know that it's just a business relationship. 500 pesos for a night out followed by an all-nighter is a small price to pay for a "had a great time, now please go."

Funny you already did it though not surprised. And your criteria for "girlfriend material" is perfectly valid and in any event your own, no need to defend or excuse it!

Sid your point is well taken. But when I'm in town I don't have much time. I want a sure thing and she needs to be attractive. Depending on the chica and the situation it's possible I could pursue an "unpaid" date. I just think the odds of finding/getting what I want with minimal time and effort are much higher in a paid scenario with a working chica.

It's an upscale place and I think that the staff at Croix really tries to pick girls who are relatively (relatively! Higher class. There are also far more actual Porteñas working there because they pay more and are a "legit" estabilishment. For the most part I've found the girls who work there take their jobs relatively seriously and there's a much lower "skank" factor. Mind you, I don't mind shagging a sexy skank, but I don't necessarily want to have dinner with her.

What is the best time and day to go to Croix where you have the best choice of chicas?

I know that I've reported on this place before, but now I'm not able to find my previous report. This report is based on an experience about two weeks ago and another maybe a year or two ago.

This place, www.croixspa.com.ar, is definitely upscale. And priced accordingly. The drop is $185 and I foolishly did not ask if that includes "relax". It would be interesting to know if you can negotiate services and their costs during the presentation.

Very clean, generously sized rooms. Each with its own shower. Wider than standard camillas (massage tables) but, in my experience, without a hole for your face. No beds in the rooms.

One drawback is that you pay that upfront fee of $185 before you get to see the girls available. I was told that they would at least tell you how many girls were available. But I had made an appointment with a girl recommended to me so none of that mattered. It was her last day, by the way, so no point in giving her name or reviewing her. Worse, the girls here do not appear on any web sites. So you have no idea even who you might see in the presentation.

I think that most of the receptionists here do not speak English, but one who does speak English, and very well, is Joregelina. As of a about two weeks ago she was working in the afternoon.

Not for bottom feeders, but depending on the value you place on the accommodations you might find it a decent value.

I found three on this date.

You must have reported on another place a few weeks ago.

To update this with today's experience:

The spa touch is definitely a nice side, it feels much more "proper" than most privados or other spas. The room I was in on the 5th floor was not overly nice, but not bad either. There was a shower in the room and the standard size massage table. I was presented with 3 chicas, one of which was undoable, one ok and one really hot. I chose the latter. The fee for the room (including one hour massage and manual relax) was 300 pesos. The chica took her robe off right at the start while she explained that sex would be 350 pesos (on top of the room). I had to ask for the fee for a CBJ (250). She spoke acceptable English.

I initially chose the BJ and then upgraded to full sex, which was ok but not great. The same goes for the uninspired massage. Ok, but nothing near to a real massage. Even the handjob (with which I asked her to finish me off since I wasn't getting off otherwise) was closer to a rapid movement jerking session than to the sensual massage as for example Naelia from Prana knows how to do it.

Obviously this may have been gringo prices, and obviously I might have negotiated them down more.

I will probably not repeat: For full sex there are better places with proper beds. For a massage with HJ there are other places to try. For both cases the prices at Croix are a bit too high for my taste.

I've been to Croix and like the physical place. Quiet. Very nice rooms. Each room having it's own shower is nice. But when I've been there I've always known which girl I want to see (from reports). When you were there and choose the girl had you already paid for the room and relax before you selected the girl? That IMHO would suck because once you have paid for the room the girl has a definite advantage. If I ever go back I am going to insist on choosing and negotiating with the girl before I part with any money.

Bob.

Agreed. The quiet atmosphere is nice and the place looks and feels clean. The room was nothing special as mentioned, but far from bad and it didn't feel filthy in any way.

You pay the fee before entering the room and indeed could be disappointed by the selection of girls.

I went today. Receptionist very professional and understood English. I explained I just wanted real massage with HE. She said no problem and it is included for 300 pesos. Inflation. 4 girls came in for intros. Looks 5,7,6,7. The first 7 just peaked around door And said Hello, in such A way to make it clear she had better things to do. I chose the second 7 although she was probably about 32, just my preference.

From here it sucked. The door closed and she explained thAt she is there for se, not massage and that if I want this to be good I need to pay 350 to 400 peso now and there will be no massage just sex and her clothes off. You pay before you see girls so at this point I know I'm screwed. Her name was Carmen by the way. So I tell her massage or get manager. She give 1/2 hearted And 1/2 body massage and then start HE 20 min in session. Her attitude sucks and now she just going through motion leaving me feeling like I found the first cyber HE cyborg. Next comes deme deme blah blah and roughly translated " why don't you play with yourself" to which I replied for 300 pesos. At 32 minutes we have condom for power jack with emotionless woman who now gave me PTSD memories of exwife: just what I was looking for. I told her I had better things to do like dental extraction and she said a lot of Spanish that I think was basically fu you if you don't pay more because everyone does. So here is the best part. I tell I'm so sorry and that I will pay her for whatever she can give: Bring it baby. She then says at 32 minutes in that it is too late for her to do more! I spoke to receptionist who offered me a phone number to a manager but not a refund. Of the probably 50 such places I have been I would the place itself gets an 8 but the girl gets a negative 2. The absolute worst and dumbest I have ever met. I am not cheap but I don't pay top dollar for cheesy wines. Bottom line is the management should either not advertise the service or should do some serious education of the providers. For the record I told them to make it right or I would need to post a negative review. YMMV but I doubt it.
