Clean, helpful and inexpensive! 3/8/2009

I really do enjoy going here not only for the inexpensive tanning packages but also how helpful the employees and owner are. I found the perfect tanning package and it didn't cost me hundreds for a crappy bed like most places. So what if the owner has a particular style, its her business she can dress how she wants. She has always been respectful and helpful in front of her customers overhearing a little gossip does not a poor business woman make. It happens. The beds and complimentary towels have always been clean whenever I've gone. I have been a customer years and will continue to be so. Pros: Great deals, inexpensive, clean Cons: parking during busy times can be a pain more

Rediculous 7/8/2008

I have an inside scoop on this salon- The bulbs in the beds are never replaced and when they do replace them, they are "slightly used" bulbs. The "MANAGER/OWNER" (if you can call her that) is so consumed in her personal life that she never takes the time to really help out the salon. She talks about the customers AND her employees like they are a piece of trash, referring to them as the "b" word or they're stupid or dumb or whatever she feels like saying at the time. They're are multiple things in there that are against Oregon codes and she never takes the time to fix them because she claims shes broke (yet consistently goes out of town to go camping or on vacation). All in all, the girls that work there are sweet and considerate but the salon is trash. I feel bad for the customers that go there. Pros: The Mystic tan rocks! Cons: The environment more


Tantalizing is absolutely the best tanning place i have ever visited! They keep the place very clean, and are very friendly. However, they are frequently hiring/firing girls which can create some impersonality, but they do what they can to fit right in and i have never had an issue. The girls are very informative and had a lot of knowledge on the packages. They also tend to be very flexible when selling a package!! (FREE TANS!!) I would recommend this salon to any of my friends! I also must touch on their Mystic Tan. It is the best i have ever done, EVER! I had previously done a mystic tan at Tan Rio and it was terrible!! I swore i would never do one again, but the girls insisted and gave me a free mystic to try and i must say i was amazed at the quality of the solution, no streaks or lines! I have become quite a frequent tanner at Tantalizing and it breaks my heart to hear any negativity about such wonderful people! If you are looking for an affordable, clean, and friendly tanning salon in the LO area i would make it a point to at least check it out! I think you will be just as amazed as i was!! :) Pros: Great customer service, affordable prices, personable staff, flexible packages, CLEAN, awesome Mystic and long hours! Cons: Waits on their upgrade beds, no appointments. more

Best Mystic Ever.. Rock on! 6/29/2008

Hello everyone! In my spare time I moonlight as a mystery shopper in Portland, OR. and just recently moved into the Dunthorpe area, and live close by "Tantalizing Tans" I do not know anyone at the salon. It was not an assignment either. I do have qualification to read service, prices and people in general. I thankfully stumbled upon "Tantalizing" last night. The salon had just closed for the evening, but had not yet locked their doors. Upon finding this out I Immediately apologized, and relayed I would return at a later date. The owner was very busy with paperwork etc. but took me in, and asked what she could do to help me out..I was immediately impressed. I've been to the so-called popular local fast-tan tanning salons for Mystic, as well as the traditional methods. I am completely thrilled with the Mystic tan I received last night, the color is fantastic, the best I've ever received, so much color with no streaking, if you remember to take care of hands and feet..the owner insured I was completely taken care of by helping me out with the little tricks of her particular booth, explaining everything in detail for me. As a matter of fact as I was getting ready to walk out the door she pulled me in and made sure I rubbed around my fingers and toes, she even helped me do it, she was very kind.. So what if she looks a lil'like Amy Winehouse, I particularly think that's very cool..different strokes ya know. This shop is not a run of the mill tanning salon, which gets you in and out as fast as they can. The priced packages are competitive, and the service is more personal..this is a great place for a Rock'n Roll lifestyle sort of clientele; casual, with a bit of trash/metal/punk but elegant and spacious, get in and out see ya later and looking hot sort of tanning salon. This is a quick post, don't have much time to edit..but I want to give another review; a more objective perspective. No need to call The Better Business my dear. Pros: elegant, funky cool Cons: location sort of hidden, I like that though..I'm a celebrity wife more

Terrible and Trashy. 5/21/2008

I was definitely disappointed with this salon. The staff was pushy, not helpful, and unfriendly. The owner was a trashy and rude woman who dressed like a 16 year old rebellious 'harlot' (for the want of use of an inappropriate word). The beds were disgusting and unclean and the bulbs hadn't been replaced since Jesus walked the earth. I would NEVER recommend this salon or go to it again, for fear of contracting some horrible disease from the beds themselves. The staff, and owner, were pushy for sales beyond belief and would make others wait while they went over their over priced packages and tanning lotion prices even after you say you're not interested. This is BY FAR the worst tanning establishment I have gone to. I'm making a complaint with the Bureau of Better Business, and other regulatory entities that deal with health. May they go out of 'Buzinezz!' The name says it all. Trashy, trashy, trashy. Pros: Tanning Cons: Old bulbs, terrible service, owner terrible, bad hygiene, not recommended more

Tantalizing Tans 3/12/2008

HIGH PRESSURE SALES, to the point you feel uncomfortable. They do not take no for an answer. Those girls who work there including the owner (who is the worst) will do anything for a sale, if that means making customers wait while they explain all there packages and lotion specials, even when the customer isn't interested. I mean seriously go clean the beds, there are customers WAITING, all the girls that work there are like damn car salesmen.....I have purchased lots of packages from them in the past but will not be returning Pros: cute little yorkies! Cons: always have to wait, high pressure sales,bulbs are dull more

False advertizing :( 11/2/2006

They advertised FREE tanning til December 1st. I signed up around the end of September. When I went in to tan on November 3rd I was told : Pros: I didn't have to wait long before going in to tan. Cons: The owner airs her dirty laundry to strangers(me!). False advertising more

Tacky Tacky Tacky 4/18/2006
