Best Tanning Salon – I Love this place!! They always have new bulbs in the beds, and the best prices I've seen anywhere! I always leave there with a great tan! The people are always so friendly and helpful, I would never go anywhere else. Caribbean Tan is the BEST!
FABULOUS – I just moved from NYC and needed to find a tanning salon. After visiting 2 others, I finally found my salon! Caribbean Tan is seriously fabulous! Love Love Love the beds, in 3 sessions I have gotten so tan. I bought lotion, that I normally pay $100 for in the city for less than HALF the price! The girls are so nice and know what they are talking about! I am so happy! if you need to tan, you need to go to Caribbean Tan in Cromwell CT.
Great Salon – I went to Carribean Tan with a friend a few days ago. We were sick of trying to tan outside because the weather has been so lousy. The woman who helped us was so NICE. She gave us both a FREE packet of lotion to use and gave us a tour of the salon. The beds we used were base level, but so good. They definitely put good bulbs in those regular beds because I even got a little red from my session. I think too many times people are so quick to write a bad review or to complain, and not enough people rave about good times or expiriences. I will definitely go back there, they have good packages and seriously the LOWEST prices on lotions. There lotion prices are seriously the best kept secret around...... even if you don't tan there, you should buy your lotions there!
Horrible Customer Service!! – So I went into Caribbean Tan about 1 year ago to try their base bed so I could get back into regular tanning. I will admit I was not the tannest person ever, but I definitely had a base. I asked to try their base bed, and to go in for the full time (15 min). They argued with me telling me they could not let me go in the full time b/c I wasn't tan enough. I assured them I know my own skin, and I was going to be fine. They kept saying no, and that they wouldn't let me tan unless I went in for the 7 minutes they suggested for me. Since I had already paid I just said fine. I was already upset they tried to tell me how long I could tan for, and then their bed was a piece of cr*p! It was the cheapest bed I had ever been in, and it didn't even heat up enough during the 7 minutes- I had goosebumps from the fan the whole time!
Then, 2 days ago I decided to go back and give them another try (since Caribbean Tan is the closest to my house and I was sick of driving 15 minutes to go to another one). I walked in and there was one girl there who I asked if she could quickly show me the beds. She said " Ummmmmmmmm... Not now, Its too busy." And that was it. So I was like um ok? and walked out.
Do they want customers? That place has the worst customer service I have ever seen and I would not reccommend putting yourself through that agony. Save yourself and go to Sol Tanning (on Main Street in Middletown) or Tropical Sun (on Newfield Street in Middletown). I know I am!
I'd skip this salon! – I came here with a friend that got a gift card at a raffle. Their equipment options were limited - only 2 high end units (one with a 30 minute session that you have to turn over in half way through, and another 15 minute stand up booth that would have had a bigger changing room if it was placed in a closet). We asked for a tour of the salon and they told us to just walk around and look for ourselves. One of the hallways had boxes of what looked like tanning lamps lying on the floor. The salon looked clean when we first walked in, but once I got into the tanning room I was totally turned off. Thank goodness I didn't pay for the session! The dust rabbits (too big to be considered bunnies!) were hanging on to the walls behind the beds and the fans in the equipment (I even found some in the bed with me after my session...ewww!) Not to mention the bed they put me in had 5 bulbs out and a few others that took forever to come on! When I told the attendant about the bad bulbs after my session, she didn't even offer to refund our money. There was no place to put your clothes when you got undressed (besides the floor and a tiny hook that was only big enough for my sweater). The salon also didn't have any music while tanning, so unless you plan on sleeping - bring your iPod, or you can just listen to everyone else's conversations through the walls. I would definitely skip this salon!
