BEWARE: They FAKE their own 5 star reviews!!!! – Double check the positive reviews. OBVIOUSLY fakes. SAME review for multiple soleil tanning salons in different cities... geeze, they can't even do a good job of faking reviews for themselves
The best tanning experiance EVER! – I go tanning pretty frequently and have tried multiple other places in the nearby areas This place wipes the competition under the table.. The customer service is amazing.The staff is very friendly and professional. You don't walk in to a teenage girl slumped over the counter chewing gum and twirling her hair, talking on her cell phone while typing your name into the computer. The staff members greet you when you walk in and leave, and are available for you to ask questions without you feeling like you're bothering them, or keeping them from closing because they have a party to go to. You can tell they are very client oriented and have all kinds of specials that meet your needs in price/quantity. All my friends go here and they LOVE IT. Even my my lighter complexion friends because they have a specialized bed for customers who have light skin that normally burns the UV Scan bed...its amazing!!
Absolutely Fabulous! – I came to Soleil about 4 months before my wedding in search some color on my skin in contrast to my white dress. The girls here were so helpful in helping me figure out my strategy. I never burnt and felt totally confident for my wedding and honeymoon in Aruba. I think that their prices are very reasonable and I always get great coupons via e-mail from them.
I love the Magic spray Tan and you can't beat their $25 Magic Mornings!
Ooh- I also bought a fun summer purse in their front boutique for cheapo and get tons of compliments on it.
First experience with a tanning salon A+++ – This was my first experience with a tanning salon. I had recently moved from a place with its own swimming pool in which I had luxuriously tanned over the last summer. Missing this convenience, I opted for a tanning salon for the first time.
It wasn't cheap. I bought the highest quality tanning lotion with bronzer and a package of visits . I was walked through the process and began with baby steps of short, 5 minute tanning bed sessions, eventually graduating to 11 minutes in the following weeks. This is so that you don't BURN as the rays are intense from the machines.
The staff is courteous and this is a very high end, extremely nice tanning salon with two corridors of tanning rooms. My one piece of advice is that you use the stand up tanning towers instead of the tanning beds you get much better color..More even.
This tanning salon stands high in my regard because the customer service has always been great. I have since moved far from here, and I have tons of tanning sessions left, but since they never expire and I certainly plan on visiting the area throughout the year, I'll be able to use them up slowly but surely over the years.
This tanning salon also has incredible hours, Everyday 9am till 10pm!
shhhhh......it's a secret but, I tan.....don't tell ANYONE!
I love this place! One of the most beautiful tanning salons I've seen! The staff is awesome and I love the fact they know who I am when I walk in there (not that I visit on a daily basis but I've been a member for several years now!)
Great quality beds and very clean!!
Look no further – This salon was recommended to me by a friend, and now I recommend it to my friends -- none of whom have been disappointed. If you want a great-looking tan and a relaxing experience without the expensive price tag, look no further.
Pleasantly Surprised – I came here for the first time today and was really pleasantly surprised! I came to see about the pricing (as their website doesn't have any useful info on it) and ended up deciding it was too much of a dang good deal to pass up. The facility was very clean and they seemed really centered on being sanitary, which I prefer. The girl who helped me was really helpful,and made me confident to listen to/take her advice.
10 minutes later, I walked out with a pretty awesome starter tan and some great new lotion
I also liked that there was music playing in the beds, because I use music to figure out how much time has passed (don't wanna burn my armpits.) That and it made it not boring.
Very good experience, I am indeed happy. I was happy for the rest of the day, I can't wait to come back.
Love the Uv Scan bed!!! – This place is pretty great. I drive a ways just to go here. I recently fell in love with the HP Uv Scan bed. Also, the staff members are super nice . They make you fell really welcome.
Recently I am noticing significant improvements to this salon. Customer service has always been superb, but they are also really improving on the comfort and quality of tanning. You cannot beat the Magic tan here, I always get compliments on my tan because the Magic solution results are natural and not at all orange. They [Soleil ] obviously strives to offer quality tanning. I have been a member since they first opened their doors in Oakland- although at first I was a little unsatisfied, they proved to be the best in the area. Great prices, phenomenal customer service, and excellent tanning... I highly recommend the membership packages, unbeatable prices for the BEST Spray Magic tan and UV beds. Great job guys!
This place ROCKS!!!! – Soleil Tanning is super close to where I live and so proximity is what made them the first tanning salon I looked into when I started shopping around for a place in 2007 to start tanning for my show. They have the best prices by far for package deals and the folks at the front desk are always friendly and helpful.
I started coming again for my show this year (2009) and once again I chose Soleil Tanning. I can get 10 stand up sessions for $79! And I've only had to wait for my room once or twice. Angela is SO helpful and sweet.
The place is always clean, they offer stereos in each room so you can jam out while you're tanning and they are incredibly professional.
If you are looking for a high quality, low cost, professional and friendly tanning salon, you should definitely check out Soleil Tanning! They even offer the Magic Tan (I think that's what it's called when they spray it on you). Thanks for getting me ready for my competitions!
