This is the worst airbrush tanning salon I have ever been to. When I called to make my appointment I let the girl know I had a military ball to go to in five days and wanted some color because I didn't want my dress to wash me out. The lady gave me the appointment for the latest she could which was 5pm the day before the event and told me about the before tanning procedure, which I am already familiar with since I airbrush tan all the time by a lady that I loved and went to once a week in Junction City, KS, when my husband was stationed there. I was a little scared because this was my first time at this place, but I did not find any negative reviews so I booked the appointment. The day of the appointment I called to tell the lady if it was okay that I would be about 5mins late (which I wasn't anyhow I made it right on time) and she said that it was fine, I wish she would have told me that the lady who does the tanning was also running super behind and I would not have rushed to get there. I get there at 5 and the lady who does the tanning, which is the aesthetician there also, is still with someone. So I sit down thinking it will be about 5-10 mins, I end up waiting 35mins!! I got on the phone with my mom because I was tired of sitting there waiting doing nothing, and the ladies at the front desk didn't even offer me a drink, magazine, or anything while I waited. When the lady who will be doing the tanning comes out, I wish I caught her name, she makes this rude hand gesture telling me to get off the phone, when I've been here waiting on her over 30 mins, as if I was holding her up!! When we go in to the tanning room there are towels on the floor that look dirty, and I'm not talking about stained and rewashed, it look like others had stood there and they didn't change them out. She talks to me for 15 secs to figure what color to use on me, and she then gets a premixed solution, the lady I went to would custom mix the color for every single client. Then she begans to tan me without giving me any special lotion to put on my fingernails,toenails, feet, elbows and knees, since does usually become darker than the rest of your body. She tans me in literally 5 mins!!! She didn't instruct me to make half the positions I usually do in order to insure a perfect, even tan everywhere, and didn't go over any sections. It is not my fault she was running behind, I am a paying customer and should be given full attention, not rushed out of there. I am used to about a 20-30 min session that comes out beautiful. When she finished I said "That's it?" and she just replied "Yup" said some others things and walked out. I was so disappointed and upset, for the same price I paid the lady in KS, I got a piece of crap job done here. I got dressed and just hoped that after the 12 hrs the color would come out and everything would turn out okay. I wake up the next morning, the day of my event to my horror. My chest was semi tan, my legs were pale white and my feet were black!! There was no hiding how obvious and blotchy my four different colors throughout my body were. I wanted to cry is how bad it was. It was so bad that I decided I would write a review to warn others. I will never come here again, for anything!! It is not just about the horrible "tan" that I received, their customer service is really bad, I was not given the proper time and care. I guess I was only worth 5 mins of the aestheticians time, I must have been holding her up.
Worst Spa Experience Ever – My friend and I made appointments for pedicures earlier this week. After being told that 4 pm was the only available time we planned the rest of our day around that appointment time. Upon arriving for our appointment twenty minutes early we were told that "she was running a little behind and would be with us soon. Should be around 415". We said that would be fine and took a seat. The lady at the front desk offered us something to drink and we sat and talked for a bit. Around 430 we decided to ask if they knew about how much longer it would be. We were told "she is just finishing up". To which we said it would have been nice if someone had at least called us if they thought she would be this far behind. They apologized and said they didn't realize she was this far behind. At 455 we decided it had been an hour and since my friend had come from about rt mins away and had dinner plans that we couldn't wait any longer. When we told them we were leaving they asked if we would like to reschedule, to which we said absolutely not. While walking out to our cars one of the ladies came out and asked if we would like to have her call another spa. This would have been nice however we had now already waiting an hour for no service and were not going to drive to another spa and wait some more. That offer was way too little way too late. I have been to several spa's as well as small spa like establish,ends and never have I had service like this. When I think of a relaxing spa experience this is not what I would picture. I would not recommend this "spa" to anyone. All in all ... Worst spa experience ever!
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TRAVEL TO GREECE TO GET THEGREEK WORKS – I spent the whole day there and got the works. Everyone was so nice and caring. The massage was AWESOME! I think I fell asleep. The facial was great too. Everything there is great. I also got a pedicure and manicure...forget the nail salons, this place treats you like a queen. If you do not feel like one when you get there you will when you leave. I highly recommend The Greek Isle to everyone out there. They also have tanning beds of all types. Well worth the money and very competitive in price. A little less than the big names around here and well worth their price! TRY IT YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!!!!!
