if you want great customer service, an amazing ambiance, and of course an EXCEPTIONAL tan, you have to go to tan bella. Pros: just an overall awesome experience Cons: park...


I have had tans at numerous spas. If you want an excellent spray tan this just is not the place. So as not to be rude I will not use this to advertise my favorite place. Howeve...

the BEST tanning salon in San francisco- no questions asked. 4/9/2008

Okay- First off, I just want to say that the location of Tan Bella (off 15th & Market) is so convenient and easy to get to. Walking into the salon was a completely life changing experience! Not only is the place super sheek and cozy.. you also can not ask for better customer service from the employees. They really want to educate you and find a solution that is right for you. Not only have they received incredible reviews but once you go to Tan Bella you understand why. The eqiuipment is one of a kind. There is a whole other meaning to a "high pressure" tanning bed. They have beds that no other salon in San Francisco has. I just happend to be walking by one day and saw that they have been voted #1 in city search & yelp for the last 3 years.. so i decided to come in. This place is truly devoted to help satisfy their customers, they want you to leave here with the perfect tan!! I'm not a fan of writing reviews but I felt that this place deserved one... more

Thank You Tan Bella 3/11/2008

Just went to Tan Bella for the first time and I had a great experience. The individual that helped me (I think her name was Jessica) was extremely helpful. She gave me a tour of the entire salon and explained all of the equipment. In the past I have always burned on beds and after she helped me I new why. I will no longer go on beds with the "long white tubes". This salon has beds that don't burn you and you get really tan!!!!! Asside from the great service, the place is nice and comfortable and has a cool vibe. Thanks Tan Bella for giving me a great tan and a new fun place to go to.... Pros: Great Service, Great Equipment, Ambiance more

Coolest Tanning Salon in SF, cute empoloyees 2/3/2008

Yesterday was my first visit at the salon, I wanted to spray tan in this place. This is the only place I've seen here in San francisco that actually has a cool booth like this, I went to a couple other tannin salons and all the they had was either the beds with the lamps or spray tan by hand.. i basically had with no clothes on in front of a stranger that sprayed me... more

A New Tan Bella!!!!!! 1/11/2008

I just left Tan Bella's new location by the ballpark and I am speechless. I have never seen anything like this in my entire life. The interior is out of this world....... I happened to be randomly walking by and noticed it. I had no idea it was a tanning salon. Once inside, one of the owners gave me a tour and showed me there new equipment. The equipment is off the charts.... Tan Bella has done it again!! I am so excited to have a tanning salon in my neighborhood.... Pros: Parking Cons: none more

Great Experience 10/15/2007

I went to Tan Bella for the first time last week. I read all the reviews and was more curious than anything. I went there almost feeling that there is no way this place could live up to the hype. Needless to say, I walked away very happy. My wife and I wanted to get some color for our wedding coming up and thought we would give it a try. Not only was the place great inside, but the service was excellent. The gentlemen that helped us was very insightful and helpful. He helped us come up with a tanning base plan. He made sure that we will get the best tan in the shortest amount of time. He spent over an hour with us to make sure we understood everything about tanning. Tan Bella was an overall great experience. Pros: service, equipment more

Incredible Spray Tan 10/15/2007

I have been going to Tan Bella since the opening and it's a great place. Even though they have cool ambiance, and great customer service; my spray tan is what i love the most. After trying about 15 different spray tanning salons in the city I found Tan Bella. I have never had such a great tan. There spray is the best. The color is incredible. Not only can i do it with bronzer, but i can also do there clear version (so i don't get anything on my clothing). The thing I love the most is all the free things they give you to ensure your spray tan is great!!!! Pros: Great Color Cons: Far From My House more

average at best 10/8/2007

I have had tans at numerous spas. If you want an excellent spray tan this just is not the place. So as not to be rude I will not use this to advertise my favorite place. However I will say that if you want the best spray tan this just not is it. I only tried it because my favorite place (in pac heights) was fully booked and I live close to this place. I thought just MAYBE it would be OK.. more

Best in SF 9/25/2007

Tan Bella is a great place to go and Tan. I have to admit, I was very hesitant to to give Tan Bella a chance. I live clear across town and I hate to go out of my way for things. After trying about 3 or 4 salons near my residence I decided to give Tan Bella a try. A few of my girlfriends couldn't stop talking about how much they love it. So I decided to stop being stubborn and give it a try. Pros: Customer Service, Ambience, Staff, Equipment Cons: None more

The Mecca of Tanning!!!! 9/25/2007

Wow!!!!! This place is the best!!!! I moved here about two months ago from Texas and I thought I new everything about tanning...... Well I didn't... Tan Bella taught me all about tanning. In the past my tan only lasted 3-4 days now it lasts almost two weeks. It's crazy how there UV equip. is so powerful and crazy looking. More importantly, every time I go there i have a ton of fun. The staff is great and the owners are amazing. No matter what I ask them they always take there time to help me. Pros: Customer Service, Ambiance, Equipment Cons: Parking on Event Weekends more

No little secret, this IS the place to tan in San Francisco! 4/3/2007

I have been a member for over one year now. You can't get more personality and personal touches than here. Pricing is competitive for the packages offered. Towels are a great size, nothing small like a wash cloth given at other salons. Candies left in the tanning rooms, free one use goggles, plasma screen in the waiting room, great style with the decoration. Oh and I should mention the best part, the customer service! Informative, friendly, talkative and I've met both the owners. Great guys to talk to and this is coming from a guy. They take appointments which is understandable since they just have one lay down bed and one stand up. I left my 'tanning' heart at Tan Bella. Pros: Atmosphere, personal touches, appointments, staff, clean Cons: No parking more

This place is incredible!!! 1/18/2007

Wow! This place is so incredibly cool and lives up to every bit of hype I read on here! Pros: Great atmosphere! Great Music! Great Machines! Great Staff! Cons: Need more machines more

Best Tan Experience in the City 12/31/2006

I went to Tan Bella based on my friend's recommendation and was very pleasantly surprised. From the moment I walked in the ambiance was inviting and further the staff was not only knowledgeable about the services but also eager to help. I wouldn't go anywhere else in the city. Pros: Ambiance, Knowledgeable Staff more

Best Spray Tan in SF! 12/8/2006

These guys live up to the hype! Every stellar review you're reading about this place is 100% true! I just went in for my first spray tan session last night and it was perfect. The staff is totally amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I actually read all the reviews here and picked this place based on what I read. I went in a couple of weeks ago and talked to them, had them explain the process to me and how to prepare for my first visit. Then I bought a tan package and made my first appointment. I highly recommend that you do it this way rather than just walk in off the street to tan because you need to prep your skin before you do the spray tan -- you need to exfoliate in the shower at home first. Buy the tan prep aloe gel -- it's not a gimic, it really works. I am so happy with my tan and these guys are soooooo nice! Go to Tan Bella, you'll love it! Pros: amazing and knowledgeable staff, great products, wonderful atmosphere Cons: none more

Best In SF!!!! 7/10/2006

After reading all about this place on citysearch it totally lived up to all the hype!!! I went in the other night when they were extremely busy and a guy name Greg totally made time for me. In between all the madness he gave me a personal tour and explained to me so much about tanning. Not only did he tell me about there awesome new technology, he was totally patient with all my questions. After my tour I did this thing called the double dip because I wanted to be dark when i left. I went in pale and left looking like a bronzed god!!!!! I first did the UV and then followed it up with a spray tan. I dont think you can do this anywhere else. Not only does this place give you a great tan, but it is also so cool inside.... Cant wait to go back!!!! Pros: Customer Service, Equipment, Ambience Cons: Cant go everyday more

Why Go Anywhere Else 7/10/2006

When it comes to tanning Tan Bella has perfected it. I moved here from Texas two months ago and I have tried almost every salon in this city. Up until I went into Tan Bella I was truly dissappointed. This place has awesome ambience (great music), unreal customer service, and out of this world tanning equip... I have seen some tanning equip over the years but nothing like what they have. It is also so cool inside. Sometimes I dont even feel like I am at a tanning salon. The best part about Tan Bella is how excited i get when its time to go back. Anyone looking for a tanning place I urge you to try Tan Bella!!!! Pros: Ambience, Customer Service, Cool People more

greatest fake tan ever 4/3/2006

the owner walked me through the whole process. he told me everything i needed to know about sunless tanning. he made me and my friend feel very comfortable. i usually have bad experiences at these kind of salons because everyone is so stuck up, but this place has a really nice atmosphere, it looks more like an upscale night club. Pros: friendly, knowledgable, inexpensive more

Fabulous Tanning Salon 3/31/2006

First of all the atmosphere is not what you would expect from a tanning salon, this place is tastefully decorated and very stylish. The man who helped me, Peter, was so knowledgable of the tanning process and explained everything in detail, it is clear the staff cares about the clients and knows how to give them the tan they are craving. The prices are extremelly reasonable( I got a buy on get one free as a first time client, two tans for $35) and the tanning beds are top quality, you will not find any other like these. You are truely given a luxury tanning experience. Be sure to make an appointment, this place is popular. Pros: decor, staff, prices Cons: zero! more

Finally! 1/9/2006

Well, I'm not quite sure even where to start because I just got home from visiting this salon and absolutely felt compelled to tell everyone about it...people NEED to see this place and try it out! I have been to numerous tanning salons in various cities and 12 salons in this city, yes 12!, and have NEVER had an experience like this at a tanning salon. I was always just searching for a deal or something better but I was totally overwhelmed by the ambiance, the staff, the equipment, the education I got, how I felt just being in the salon, and how I felt when I was all truly unbelievable. I'm 100% hooked as my friends will soon be! If you want the latest and greatest, do yourself a favor and visit this will find yourself immediately wanting to write a rave review! Pros: Best Staff, Best Equipment, Best Atmosphere Cons: None more
