If you are looking for a nice place to get a manicure or pedicure don't go here. There are only two spots to get a pedicure and one spot for a manicure (not the perfect place to go if you want to enjoy a litle pampering with a friend or family member).

The pedicure area has you stepping up and sitting on a bleacher like platform with your legs danglinging in a small bowl. No comfy vibrating chairs; just hard benches with slippery pillows. I have sat at sports stadiums that were more comfortable. If you are under 5'8'' forget about having your feet even hit the water. If you are handicapped - go somewhere else, this place is NOT accessible. I also wouldn't recommend it for anyone who thinks they might have trouble climbing bleachers, cause you have to do this to get the pedicure.

The nail technicians are not technicians at all and the service is horrible. Our polish was coming off our nails before we even walked out of the building. No relaxing foot or hand rubs are part of their spa manicure/pedicure. They don't even know how to file your nails. For $125 per person, for the spa mani/pedi it is a huge rip off. And watch out. They automatically add in a 20% gratuity to your bill as standard practice.

All the people there are very nice, they just don't have a clue about what they are doing. Save your money and paint your nails in your room.
