Misleading Groupon Massage – The Groupon deal is extremely misleading! Cebado Barcelona uses the B Spa Bar name to market the Groupon deal & to try to make the place sound like a proper spa (or a chic-chic bar, ha!). But to my disappointment, I went and found a basic walk-in hair salon, similar to a Supercuts. The massage took place in a dingy back room, talk about shady. The pictures for B Spa Bar on the Groupon deal were not of the actual place where you will go for a massage. Yes they have small print telling you where to go, which was a totally different store location. That was my first warning sign this Groupon deal was not what it was cracked up to be. Talk about deceptive marketing. I much rather them be upfront so I know what exactly I'm paying for. The name "Beauty Room" is a scam, it was a small back room that was hot and had no amenities what so ever. I felt anything but beautiful being in there. Be aware, there are no comforts of what you'd expect from a "spa" or a "bar" for that matter. No showers, no robes & slippers, no towels, no floor mat for your bare feet, no drinks or even a glass of water. The hair dryers and noise from the salon did not make for a relaxing experience. The "soothing" music for my massage was anything but, the stereo kept skipping repeating & the masseuse kept interrupting my massage to go fix it. The massage focused on my arms & legs way too long, with minimal time on my back which was poorly massaged in the last 10 minutes of the hour. A properly trained masseuse would've focus on my back first & and spend most of the appointment working on this body part. The cheap sheets looked dirty and did not look like they were changed after each customer. They couldn't even invest in a proper coverlet/blanket. The blanket was a natty brown furry thing that felt itchy on my skin. It was gross. For the price of this Groupon deal, I would've much rather have gone to any NYC Korean nail salon & have one of those random guys massage me on those chairs. At least there, I will know what I'm paying for, no scams, no smoke & mirrors. In a nutshell, you just strip down to get a horrible massage and get dressed with massage lotion all over your body when the massage is over. It's a shame. I'm a strong believer that capitalism thrives. Businesses like this one won't last long. It's just sad they sold this deal to 700+ unsuspecting customers. Hopefully they read this before going.
