I live very close by and have been intending to try Samar. Am I sorry I waited this long! ! The best pedicure I've ever had--that includes some pretty exclusive places in this country and abroad--and I'm very particular about cleanliness, cuticle care, no nipping, polish must last! Well, Samar is the answer: Clean, careful, competent, artistic, good massage, very professional attitude. I'm an instant regular. Come to Samar--the walk (if you have one) will be good for you and the treatment is your reward. Definitely a destination Salon and Spa.
Pros: Everything--it's a 5 star.
Cons: Well, you can't see the Eiffel Tower..., Trevi Fountain..., Big Ben...., the beaches of Ipanema...
