GREAT manis/pedis, skip the spa services – I love coming here for manis/pedis because the staff here is so friendly, especially the always-smiling manager who greets every guest and bids them farewell. Because I loved the place so much, I decided to try out their spa services with a facial and a wrap. Both were a huge disappointment. First, the facial: the room is very clean and lit well so I was ready to relax and enjoy the whole experience. Overall, it was an all right facial, except for the rash-like red marks on my face from the extractions that didn't go away for over a week (the esthetician uses a lance to aid extractions). What bothered me about the experience, though, was the hard upsell. The esthetician took a quick peek at my face befeore starting and immediately tried to persuade me to opt for microdermabrasion. I found this a bit disconcerting because a) she isn't a dermatologist and b)she looked about 22. How much experience could she possible have with microdermabrasion that any spa regular can be confident that she won't do any damage? (Note: it is commonly recommended that all microdermabrasion be performed or supervised by a DERMATOLOGIST).After I rejected the micrdermabrasion, she tried to sell me a more expensive facial. This was my first facial at this place so I just wanted to try the basic, and again said no. I just wanted to relax but the pressure I was feeling from this whole "business" discussion left me tense and annoyed for the rest of the facial.
Wrap: this was not a spa experience AT ALL. To start, the wet room is lit brightly (compared to other treatment rooms) and there is no music. And it is COLD. Maybe not if you are wearing clothes, but it certainly is when youare not waering a thing and being doused intermittently with water. Requests to heat the room up went unfulfilled. I had goosebumps until the blankets covered me (about 30 minutes in). And did I mention that the esthetician made me STAND UP in my b-day suit while she applied the body mask? Ick.
Great spa!! – My girlfriend wanted to get a spa treatment for couples for our anniversary and we didn't want to go somewhere far. A friend recommended rehoboth and it was a WISE choice. From the staff to customers, it seemed like everyone had a smile on their faces even though it was absolutely horrible outside. We spent close to 800 dollars for all the treatment for both of us and it was well worth it. This was my first time at a spa and it was a great experience. The deep tissue massage was absolutely fantastic. I think the best thing about this spa is that they ask YOU, if everything is going ok and they adjust to your own taste. I would most definitely revisit this spa. I think my girlfriend already became a regular there.
WORST PLACE YOU'LL EVER END UP; DON'T GO TO THIS PLACE! – This place was awful. Having had a cold for over a week, I decided to treat myself to a French Manicure. I already had a manicure done one week prior, which I loved, but it was chipping so I decided to try this new place on my way home.
They assigned me a beginner. She cut my cuticles and massaged me. It was fine. I had told her I'd like a clean line for my French manicure. She painted one side of my hand and I was horrified. I told her I didn't like it. She then made me wait 10 minutes and then a manager came. By this time, a regular suggested I try a particular manicurist. The manager insisted she was better and she'd paint my nails. Again, it was horrible. She finally caved and sent me the manicurist the regular customer suggested. She did an okay job.
In the end she wasn't great either because she caked on the nail polish thickly because she sucked doing French manicures. My nails dried, I arrived home, washed my hands (2 hours later). I see a chip on my nail. When looking closer, it wasn't a chip but the nail polish had been polished on so thickly that when I rubbed all of the tips, the polish was a gum-like texture that was just being pushed off with my hands. I just erased all of it off and when looking underneath, THEY RUINED MY NAILS. They filed my nails and it looks distorted and sloppy. DON'T EVER GO TO THIS PLACE AGAIN OR YOU'LL REGRET IT!
BEST EVER – I love Rehoboth Spa Lounge. It was such a great experience. I've been to other Spa's ; which I thought were good until now! Now I see they were not as good as I thought. The staff were soo pleasant and attentive. I took my boyfriend for his birthday and he loved it. We got the body scrub, hot stone massage, facial, and pedicure. The body scrub was exilerating. The massage was soo relaxing. The facial left my skin so clear and fresh. You dont see the results of most facials until later on but this was instant. They give you a survey to fill out before you began; which is an excellent idea. They use the information to personalize the services for you. Most importantly they do not push their products. I told all of my friends and family about them. Anytime I hear anyone mention a Spa I recommend Rehoboth. Its worth every dollar. You wont even mind the price once your done. I cant wait to go back!!
Mani/Pedi - great service – My first visit to Rehoboth was on November 1st, 2006. I got a mani/pedi from a lady who has been working there for a year. She was absolutely wonderful with the service and great final results of my polish. The nail polish from my pedi is still intact! The normal case for me, as i work out and play sports, the polish will chip after 3 days. Prices are average and the place is clean.
Great Service! – I've been going here for years. I started going when I worked downtown. Now I work uptown, but I still go out of my way to go to Rehoboth. I've tried others, but no one has the service, consistency or professionalism that they have.
amazing space, amazing staff – the staff at rehoboth never forget a face. everytime i walk in there i get a warm fuzzy feeling. their services are top notch. you have not had a pedicure until you have tried their spa and hot stone pedicures, they are transcendant!
sweet as can be, and celebs love it too! – The women and men of Rehoboth have been keeping me beautiful for almost 9 years now. They are so nice and warm and accomodating and always remember you when you walk through the door. Pretty hot with celebs too! I saw Meryl Streep and Susan Sarandon there on separate occasions in one week! Great place to relax.
Oasis – I'm a pedi-perfectionist and can tell you that Rehoboth is the best bang for your buck. I've been to too many salons that do little more than wet your feet and give you a fresh coat of polish. Some spend more time massaging your legs than actually tending to your FEET. Others offer lots of atmosphere (manicures at a "bar" with cucumber water "cocktails") with outrageous prices and little substance. But the staff at Rehoboth is well trained and spends most of the pedicure where it counts - trimming, pushing back/cutting cuticles, filing, pumicing heels, the works. And they are the kind of friendly bunch that you want to bake cookies for. You can even store your personal tools there for a nominal fee. Not to mention the remodel is fabulous (right down the WC)!
User review by apellica – I have been going to Rehoboth Spa & Lounge for years. I feel the same way as another user stated when Rehoboth closed for renovations last year, I as well tried quite a few neighborhood salons and couldn't find another salon that lived up to the level of service that I receive at Rehoboth Spa & Lounge.
The salon is clean, the staff friendly and I always love the way my manicure looks every time!!
