My mom and I did the spa day retreat package here, which included a pedicure, facial, and massage. I enjoyed all three immensely. Take their advice and sip a mimosa while getting your toes done! They use vegan nail polish, so you don't have to feel any guilt about indulging. My massage was outstanding; my masseuse used pretty heavy pressure... More

Went here with my daughter during the holiday break. We each purchased the "Spa Day Retreat" package, This includes a Potosa massage, a bliss facial and a ritual pedicure. Unfortunately we waited to book a little too long and they were very booked during the holidays. The woman we spoke with on the phone was super helpful though. She really... More

The services and quality of the spa were very nice and prices seemed reasonable. One problem I had was with the front desk. I was scheduling several services for my daughter and myself, was over charged $80 with the implication that I had done something wrong in the scheduling even though I called over a week in advance and was...

For one of the first times in my life, I was given extremely friendly service from making the appointment to walking out the door at a high-end salon and spa. On top of that, I had a great 60 minute spa pedicure. I changed into a comfortable robe and unwound in the relaxation room before the pedicure. I also liked... More

The spa is incredibly clean, no detail unnoticed. the bathroom was loaded with personal grooming goods - all high quality brands they sell. The relaxation room was lovely with water,granola. The heated massage beds were wonderful. My 50 minute massage with Christy was absolutely fabulous. It felt a lot longer than 50 minutes and it was one of the best... More

This spa is a must. Everything is top notch, very clean, staff went above expectations. I would recommend purchasing some of the oil. This was my second visit and I am hoping to go back again soon.

We visit this spa once a year when a group of us visit the area. It offers every amenity and extremely reasonable prices. We are completely catered to and cannot find any areas of improvement needed.

I have been lucky enough to visit spas all over the states. They have almost all been lovely. But right here in Dubuque, Iowa is a total jewel. The spa is tasteful, restful and just about perfect. I have had most of the services offered and been happy with all of them but my massages with Mickey S. have me... More

I had some time due to a scheduling error and found myself stopping in for lunch at Hotel Julienne...once I learned they had a spa, I checked to see if they had any openings...lucky for me it was a slow day.
