Cool Spot – I enjoy coming here when the sun isn?t strong enough to tan or I don?t have time to sit outside for an hour.. a quick 25 minutes in one of these beds and your good to go! I would suggest using lotion for the first couple times to avoid getting burnt and then switch to a bronzer to help you get darker.
mmm soakng in the warm rays is so nice – I just came back from lounging in the tropical bed they have & I feel great! It felt so good in there that I didn’t want it to end. The warmth of the rays all over, relaxing, taking in that vitamin D…mmm. For 15 minutes I’m sitting on a beach in Sayulita, worry free and looking good (instead being in foggy San Fran with a thousand responsibilities, looking pale). It was so nice. Plus, I get my vitamin D boost, which is great. It’s like natures Prozac. I always feel so happy and rejuvenated after. Maybe it’s the feeling of being on the beach in Mexico (but not paying for tickets or hotels $$$), maybe it’s the vitamin D lift, or maybe it’s the instant improvement in my appearance (I don't know anything that can bring you up on the the attractiveness scale as quickly as a tan can). All I know is I am a much nicer person when I walk out of their. My boyfriend LOVES it when I go there. It is the best splurge item on my list, by far.
Oh yeah, I forgot why I came on here. I wanted to tell people how ridiculously good of deal I got. I know, I know, I sound like an ad, but trust me-you want to know about this.
I got a $140 tanning package FREE, for buying an $80 lotion. I’m a student and so I would never allow myself to buy such a high quality lotion. But I look at it this way, I just got a month of tanning for almost half off AND a really high quality lotion for free. You can’t beat that. PLUS, I can use the month of tanning whenever I choose to. So come May when I actually can take that trip to Mexico, I can start that baby up and I’ll be bronze in a bikini in no time (well, in a month).
Poor customer service from Sarah (located on Kings Street) – I felt like Radical Tan did not want my business. I called and talked to Sarah. It was like I called her at the wrong time, she did not give me the time of day.
Today, I was able to tan at a place that was more than friendly.
I would not recommend Radical Tan to any of my friends.
Affordable but OK – This place is good but not great... there beds are old but i get a descent tan. I like this place because i never have to wait for a bed... It s funny how many people write how much they love the owners but yet i never see them their... i have a feeling these "so-called" owners wrote the reviews... anyways place is ok.... I think i am going to give up on tanning in sf unless anyone has reccomendations...
Radical Tan - best service – Radical Tan on King Street is one of the best tanning salons I've been to! The owners offer personalized service, spend the time getting to know you and offer advice on how to best achieve your objective. They have a wide variety of tanning lotions in different sizes but don't push these products like other salons which I greatly appreciate. I find the booths are extremely clean and are stocked with all the needed amenities; headphones, new towels, spare glasses and even a chocolate! Again, by far the best salon I've been to.
Fabulous Tanning, friendly service, clean establishment. – I have been tanning at "Radical Tan", for 2 years now. I am very happy with my tan. The owners are fabulous people, and very friendly. They work hard to make sure their guests are well taken care of. They give education on the products and tanning beds. Their salons is very well maintained and clean. Their prices are reasonable, with great specials. I would recommend "Radical Tan", over any other tanning salon in the city...by far!!!!!
Great tanning experiance! – I love this place so much I decided to become a citysearch member so i could rave about the great staff and clean beds. I have been tanning here for about 6 months and I leave feeling great every time. The owners and staff are great! They are personable and helpful if you are not a frequent tanner and you have questions. The beds are clean and I have never seen a burnt out bulb yet. I just put on my loation, put on their headphones ( they have several channels to select from), and relax for 15 minutes. I would reccomend this place for everyone no matter what the tanning type..... i have very pale skin but have never burned in these beds! Also if you join their email list you recieve coupons off tan packages on a pretty frequent basis
Best Tanning Salon in SOMA! – I have been an indoor tanner for about 10 years now and, after a recent move the SOMA needed to find a new 'hot bed'. After visiting local establishments I decided to become a client (as opposed to a customer) of Radical Tan. My reasons:
1) Very friendly and helpful staff.
2) Accessible, open and honest owners. Bernard and Theresa are awesome!
3) Competitive pricing.
4) Fantasy football competition- any establishment that will compete with their clients in online fantasy football for prizes gets my vote!
I would recommend them to anyone who needs/wants an indoor tan.
greaaaaat salon! – i've never burned there in all the times i've gone tanning there. When I initially called up the salon to ask about prices before I even began going there, the owner was soo nice and patient in fulfilling all my questions. He shows genuine care for his clients, making relevant suggestions, etc. I am extremely pleased with the wonderful customer service you get at this salon. The beds are great quality too! And the prices aernt too bad either! Be sure to go to their website to get a coupon for the new customer promotion. :) it's great!
THE best in the city! – You have to check out this salon, because of the service, the great lamps and the avaliabilty of beds. Good competitive prices. I've tanned here for years, and I will continue to for as long as I live in the city. Extremely clean! Great neighborhood! Open late!
