Tanning >Captive Tan
Not worth it. Always a long line out the door. There are always a few bulbs burnt out and they claim that they will "tell the manager" or "fix it". The rooms are grungy and not very comfortable. My "regular" tanning salon (silver beach tan) is 1/2 the price, yet double the amenities. Captive Tan even has extremely cheap body jewelry, tacky sunglasses, and knockoff handbags for sale. I've noticed that I bake so much in these beds that my skin is mildly burnt and very sensitive up until two days after tanning. Which in turn gives me the darkest tan, but even more skin damage. The outside of the beds look very old and like they are from the early 90's except the one newer bed...which already appears to be falling apart. The customer service is nothing to rave about there are a few burnt out bulbs working the counter as well...if you know what I mean. They definitely need to brush up on their knowledge and details of the beds and lotions. I'm told there is an owner who is also the manager but I have never received calls back after my complaints that I filed with the assistant manager, so if I ever hear back I will be complaining about the assistant manager as well. (I understand corporations losing track of who to call back but if there is only one owner and manager there shouldn't be a problem but if the owner is anything like the assistant manager she is trashy, orange and obviously negligent). I am also under the impression that they never change out ALL the bulbs in the beds...I have been told I am going in a bed with "new bulbs" and felt no difference, and I usually go tanning in the evening which is busy there, so I should be feeling some kind of heat. You're call!
Highly Recommended. I am new to Captive Tan. I really recommend this salon to anyone. It is very clean, the employee's are very friendly and know what they are talking about. I do not tan very easily and after one session, I could see definite sticker lines. I have never had this happen at any other salon. I bought 20 sessions and they never expire. No membership fee or monthly withdraw from my account, which I love.
Great Tanning Salon. I have tanned at a lot of salons, and Captive Tan is one of my favorites. I love that you can buy pacakges or single sessions. You don't need to sign up on a membership to tan there. Their salon does get busy at times, but it's always been worth the wait to me. I have always gotten great tanning results. I especially like their Elite bed! Employees are great too!
Too busy. Captive Tan seems like a great salon but everytime I go in there it is SO busy and they never have more then one person working. Usually there is a wait or even a line, which would say they are a nice salon but it takes forever to get through the line and into a bed. It seems very clean and the staff is friendly but it gets really annoying when the only time I have to go is either Saturdays or during the evening after work and I have to wait in line while the worker is running around with her head cut off.
Great Doggie Daycare in Saint Paul. My dog absoutely LOVES going to Paws in the Park. He starts to get so excited about a block away. It is so nice to be able to leave him and know he is having a great time, being well taken care of and not have to worry. When I pick him up he is tired after a day of playing with his friends. The staff is great, they are so friendly, helpful and caring. I just can't express how happy I am to have Paws in the Park in our life!!
Outstanding Customer Service, Always clean, Great beds. I have been going to Captive Tan for the past 5 years. I have been to many tanning salons, and I will never switch from Captive Tan. The employees are very friendly and very knowledgeable. They are not your typical tanning salon. The employees know what lotion works best depending on the person. They also help you with your skin type to get you the darkest tan the fastest. The salon is always clean. They take a lot of pride in their salon and IT SHOWS! I would recommend Captive Tan to every tanner. Haven't tried their Mystic Tan yet, but I hear others saying the results are great.
Awesome Tanning, Great Specials.
I never usually write reviews like this, but I am a huge fan of Captive Tan. Everything is really clean and kept up. The prices are always good, the specials are even better! I love tanning here, and will continue to do so while I am in the area. The best deals take place in the fall during their anniversary sale, where you can buy one package and get a second one for just $1. Last anniversary sale I got twenty tanning sessions for about $50! I highly recommend captive tan. The workers are always helpful and friendly as well!
Great Tanning salon with Great Specials!!. I have been in the area for the past 3 years and this salon is by far the best I have been too. They change their bulbs on a regular basis and their staff has been very helpful. I have been extremely pleased! They have Specials every month and they have Buy 1, Get 1 free every Holiday. One of the best things I like the best is that they keep your lotions their for you. I am college student and they had a coupon last year that was Buy 1 package, Get your 2nd package for $1.00! I got 20 sessions for $40! It was well worth it!! I would recommend this salon to anyone!
Now called Captive Tan.
and under new owners. It has been remodeled, painted, has the pillows with the speakers...it's much better than before. Very nice, clean, tanning is priced much nicer than a lot of tanning salons. In late September/early October is the anniversary special which is usually buy one package, get one for $1. I stock up for the year.
I no longer live near captive but I still do most of my tanning there. My only negative would be the day that I saw the owner and another (I believe brother) literally fist fighting. One of them actually punched through the wall. The owner is cute though ;-)
