This is the only place I have ever been to get a pedicure, so I don't have anything else to compare it to. All I can say is that every time I have gone in the past 3 years, I have been given such a relaxing experience that I almost fall asleep! The staff doesn't speak much to me or try to make conversation, which is just perfect because I love to read my gossip magazine and then sit back and close my eyes. The massage is awesome. And, or course, my nails look cute when they are done! I have just the basic pedicure and there have been a few times I have still been given 45+ minutes of service. Love it!
