There are several therapists at CSS. All are certified and I have never seen a male therapist or been offered one. I'm not sure about the massage huts on the beach but you can have a massage in your room for a bit extra. Try the ocean huts by the spa they are WONDERFUL! "Best" therapists? I'm not sure. I enjoyed both Jackie and Ruth. Any therapist will check frequently thru your massage to make sure you are comfortable and enjoying the treatment. If you need any adjustments...speak up! They want you happy!
