American Express called to let me know that someone tried to make several online purchases at best buy the night after we had been there. It is the only place I gave MY credit card number. I gave the number to reserve my appointment but didn't use it to run. So whoever wrote the number down or someone else who works there used it. I'm sure they thought we couldn't trace it back to them.
As far as a spa it is like a cheap hotel and I question its sanitation as it doesn't look clean and I don't mean the mud but the building, floors, etc. The mud smells awful but that is probably inherent so not a legitimate complaint? However the face "mask" was an already used container of stuff that the attendant took a stick out of (also used) and lightly slapped on each cheek. After the mud bath, the male assistant cleaned up while we were in the shower which had only curtains that do not fasten. Not very private or relaxing. None of the showers are nice- no real shower heads. The mineral bath is in a small cement block without jets. Not sure what the blanket thing is about. Just random blankets not warm or anything. Massage was OK. We still tipped well though ($20) for each person for a total of $60 on $200 that included mud bath and 1/2 hour only massage. I say that because I don't know a reason other than being a thief that would make someone at a business steal a cc number. Not luxurious by any means. If you have ever gone to a spa - I can't imagine you would be happy with this one.
