Clean & Friendly Atmosphere – I use this tanning method because I work long days. The beds are clean and the tan I receive is superb. The reason Tropics is best for me is the friendly staff and no appointments necessary - I never know my schedule and they are open weekends and evenings too! I have friends that have tried the other local places and they prefer Tropics too!
Pricey but I'm getting a nice, dark tan – There are some downsides:
I am disappointed, that you really don't get anything for buying unlimited tanning. All the other places I went and paid for unlimited tanning gave me coupons for half off a lotion, good discounts on products, freebie cards for one free tan to give to my friends, and/or a free trial tan in higher level beds. (One place even gave me a tee-shirt.) I definitely think Tropics needs to do something like that. I also think that they're kind of pricey compared to other places I have been. (Especially since their discounts aren't great: only 10% for students and military.) It's around $50 for one month of unlimited level 1 tanning. I'm used to paying $25 - $30 and getting just as nice of a tan.
BUT there's also some great positives:
Everything is always very clean! The beds always look great, and I've never had an issue with the bulbs being burnt out. The second time I went tanning I was already seeing results! If you think you're not tanning well here, you should talk to the staff and maybe try another lotion before writing the salon off. In addition to being friendly, the staff is really knowledgeable about their products and eager to help you achieve a great tan. I also love how I'm always greeted by name when I enter and thanked when I'm leaving.
I definitely recommend trying this place.
I really like tropics over other salons because its chill. Everytime i go the beds are great and they dont bother me with selling products or ask me what i am using. i just go in pay and tan and leave. its simple. i have been to some where their were very annoying.
no wait, but you won't get tan – I went in and I wanted a level 4. They said "Oh you don't want that, even I burn in a level 4.." I paid too much and went in and the room door wouldnt shut. I didnt even tan a little from the highest level (4). There were bulbs lit but they were old or something. Don't go there.
BULBS ARE NOT CHANGED REGULARLY – Just visited the tanning salon today. They have 4 levels of tanning. After paying $14.00 to upgrade to a level 4, I turned off the bed and requested by money back, because there was 6 lamps out on 1 bed. They did not give me my money back. Said they were sorry, they didn't know the bulbs were out. What kind of business does not care about customer satisfaction?
