ok, so I think one of the machines in absolutans is a porthole into the center of the sun. seriously, this machine is so hot and so bright...but, it's a bronzing machine so, despite feeling like you caught fire when you step out, you actually can't get burned. for a whitey like me, that's a super big plus. absolutans is maintained really well - always very clean with a staff that is very friendly (and attractive) who take the time to explain everything to you in as much detail as you need. they have a good selection of machines and membership options, tanning/bronzing lotions, and they keep your eye gear and lotions for you on site. I've had a couple of issues with glitches starting the machines but the staff has been attentive and helpful and resolved any issues immediately. they offer a free tan when you refer someone and a buy-one-get-one-free option for certain types of tanning - and of course monthly plans as well. with fairly competitive prices (depending on the machine you select), recently extended hours and a location close to home/work, this will definitely become my go-to place whenever I decide I need a little color or a dose of vitamin D...although I'm really not much of a tanner. and I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking in the area.
I recently moved to Brickell after living on the beach for the last couple years. One of my biggest concerns was "Do I now have to drive to the beach to get tan?" After knowing which machine to use and how often to use it to get just the right of color (and keep it), I was slightly upset the convenience and enjoyment for me was gone. After a few weeks of passing by Absolutans, I decided to give it a chance. My first impression was definitely the right one. I was greeted by a gentleman who asked me how I was and if I have ever been to the salon before. When realizing that I was newbie to the salon, he politely asked if I wanted a tour of the facilities. Extremely professional, he proceeded to ask me about my Tanning Experiences. He explained about the new machines (which I never seen before) that looked like something that NASA had created. His facilities were impeccably clean and his staff polished. After a bit more conversation about memberships and pricing (which by the way are very reasonable), I found out this gentleman was the owner. Remarkably professional (not pushy at all), knowledgeable, and a pleasure to speak too, I decided to make my new tanning spot Absolutans.
Okay seriously, there are some shady tanning salons out there. Some over priced and others with young kids manning the front that just don't care about you at all. I ended up buying a Groupon and wanted to try this place out right by my house. I can tell you that from the minute I got there the staff was great. They showed me all the specials and I believe the owner even walked me through the place. I was so impressed I told my girlfriend to come by and try it out while I was there. I would definately recommend this Tanning Salon to others. Try the specials, and make sure you get a membership. Pretty cheap compared to other places... Did I mention they give you a free tan if you recommend someone to go there?
