Islands tanning is AMAZING!!! Every time i go in there the employee's always have smiles on their faces and are very helpful! The lumi bed is absolutely amazing!! I send all of my friends here!
I got laser hair removal at tualatin and couldn't be happier. The laser techs are friendly and efficient. I recommend islands to all my friends seeking laser hair removal. The rest of the staff there is great too. The managers are charming and helpful and the girls are always sweet.
I really enjoy reading some of the more "negative" comments by people. Most of the things they are saying come from either one bad experience or they didn't read their contract signing up. I have tanned here for more than a year and am completely happy with my contract! When i signed up I read the entire thing and knew what i was getting myself into. There are no "hidden" fees whatsoever. As far as the "high pressure" sales people, they are doing their job by trying to help give you the most for your money! I get offers to upgrade to better packages and sometimes I do and sometimes i don't. I have never been harassed into buying a package and whoever claims they were harassed is a joke. You are an adult and have the ability to say no. Every staff person I have worked with has been extremely knowledgeable and only wants what's best for my skin type. I don't tan easily and so I use other products they have like self tanning spray and I also do spray tans. I would have never known about other ways of tanning unless whoever was working told me. As far as their corporate fax, after reading some of these awful reviews I asked last time i went in how it works. The reason they do that is so you can write a letter explaining what you need/ have concerns about. If you called yelling, i'm sure a lot wouldn't get accomplished. They don't ask for your personal information, simply a later stating what you need. I feel sorry for those who have had a bad experience, but like I said, I am completely happy with my contract there and wouldn't go anywhere else!
This is the first review I've ever written (good or bad) but unfortunately I felt this had to be done to warn as many people as possible about my experience. First off, tanning salons are notoriously shady businesses because people who tan don't want to drive across town to do it - if the location is right, the high-pressure salespeople can burn a lot of bridges an still usually keep a relatively full clientele. Now for Islands tanning: this company sets a new standard in an already dishonest industry. The owner John Guyette is the worst kind of used car salesman and honestly the last of a dieing breed due to the speed at which information travels today. Very rarely do you meet a salesperson who will look you in the eye and not just twist the truth to make something sound better than it is but ACTUALLY FLAT OUT LIE. Unfortunately the vast majority of his salespeople are cut directly from his image. The corporate environment is simply this: sell and up-sell by ANY MEANS necessary: lie, create confusion, hide as much as possible, just get their signature on the contract. Once your signature is on the contract you have to pay 6 months before you can cancel, and after that it will cost $200 - there will be no exceptions period. And once you've canceled it's over right? Wrong. I was finding 'accounting errors' on my credit card for months afterward. Finally I canceled the credit card associated with this account because after i sent multiple FAX's (FAX is the only way to contact corporate - no emails - no phone number) no one would get back to me and the 'mistakes' continued. After i cancelled my credit card I received a letter in the mail stating i had been sent to collections! What a drain on my time and energy! Fortunately for me I've thoroughly documented this whole process but the amount of time I've spent dealing with this situation is very depressing. All I can say is if you want to tan and the only place close by is Islands tanning make sure you get all of the details in writing and examine the contract thoroughly before you sign anything (at home preferably, without one of his piranha salespeople breathing down your neck). Guaranteed you will find discrepancies between what you were told and what the contract actually says. Keep a close eye on your credit card statements and watch for the inevitable class action lawsuit! Unfortunately for the poor unsuspecting franchisees the end is very near.
Islands Tanning is the place to be! Seriously, all of their beds are top notch and they have so much more to offer than just your basic tanning bed that you'll find at other tanning saloons. The lumi bed is to die for! I used it a couple times a week for just a few weeks and already saw incredible results! I havent tried the fit wrap yet but ive heard wonderful things about it so thats next on my list! The Islands staff is always so helpful and knowledgeable about the equipment. I would most def. rate this place an A+!!!!
Seriously, this place is awful. Look
how coincidentally all of the 5 star reviews occurred on March 17th 2012, the day their groupon deal came out. Because all of the REAL reviews of this place on google reviews and at the BBB are awful!
When you have to get your staff to write fake reviews, something is wrong.
What terrible customer service. I will say outright that JOSH IS A LIAR AND AN IDIOT!!!! PS - they overcharge by 50% than every other place for the laser removal package deals, and no where else will charge you hidden fee's. The best part about this shady operation; you can only get a hold of someone in "corporate" via a fax - what a great idea!! (sarcasm) I want to send all my information and receipts and bank account number to a random fax number. Very crafty. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! There are a million places better, cheaper, cleaner, and without Josh!
Islands is great! Couldn't ask for a more helpful crew that actually care about my needs. 5 out of 5 across the board :). Tanning + medical spa = best combo ever!
Love this place! I first heard about these guys thru facebook actually my friends were telling me how they won free tanning lotion and packages etc. So I went it and was surprised by how knowledgeable the staff was. They dont only do tanning there either. They have a lumi bed aka red light thearapy bed! They let me try it out before my tan and my skin felt amazing after, super soft! After going a few times i find out they have a laser tech to do laser hair removal :) I have done this is the past and this place is the best. The prices are unbeatable and they just got a new top notch laser! I AM NOW TAN & hair free :) thank you islands, can;t wait to laser the rest of my body haha so addicting
A rating in all aspects!! I always. A+ rating in all aspects!! I always enjoy my time once I walk in the door, No wonder this place is rated A+ in the BBB. I highly recommend Islands tanning to any or all!
Islands tanning is the best tanning salon to try if you have never been tanning before. Their staff and management try their best to please every customer and give them the time needed to satisfy every single person that walks in the door. I love the color I get, even on their small base bed you can see results in just a week!!!! (if u go daily or every other day) I guarantee you would love the clean salon and friendly faces :)
