Best Salon in San Antonio by far!!

This is the best place to tan in San Antonio! The salon is clean, the lamps are new, the employees are very friendly and helpful and the owner, Steven, always remembers your name. I was not pushed in to buying a membership or lotion. I walked in and got what I wanted without being haggled! After a few weeks of taning I decided to try the airbrush tanning and I love it. The color was great and it went on evenly. I got comments on my tan for two weeks. I am hooked! I found this salon by the review previously posted and felt that I should post one to say that this truly is a great business. I will refer anyone looking for a wonderful salon to Tan It Up!

Worst experience ever

I had no real issues w/ this tanning salon (other than the fact that there's only one location) for the first year of using it. I was in a contract and was diagnosed with cancer about a year after I had started going there. I had to move out of San Antonio for a while and obviously was unable to use the salon. My boyfriend tried to contact the salon to stop my contract and electronic funds transfer due to medical reasons, offered to get medical notes from my oncologist, etc. Steven (the owner) refused to let him, said I had to personally come into the salon to stop the contract. How could I do that when I was in MD Anderson in Houston? Steven was a real jerk, even after I got back to SA and followed up on my own. He was insensitive, not helpful at all, and overall a real A**. He's great until y ou need his help, then he's all about business and ripping you off.


A Breath of Fresh Air

WOW! After trying this place out it really hit me like a ton of bricks how badly I was treated at TANCO and DarqueTan. I tried 2 individual tans for $8 each. Never tried to sucker me, actually got more tan, cleanest place. I had to ask what the longest membership was. It's 12months. I am paying $40/month for tanning and Airbrushing. Best Airbrushing too!

I had been looking for a good tanning salon in San Antonio, there were none were I live off i35. I had been with TANCO for a year, and my bill was out of controll. Darque Tan is always trying to make a sale and i hated going in there. Tan It Up is the best place to tan in San Antonio. The staff always greets you, and i rarley have to wait. Unlimited use of all the beds, plus and stand up bed, and 2 spary tans a month for 40 dollars is a great deal. Doesnt get much better then that. I love this place so much that I will return every month, and I tell all my friends to go check it out becuase this place is just the best.

You always feel welcome here. No sales pitch. I started going here 4 years ago with a suggestion from my roommate. I moved out of the city, and recently came back to SA. The owner is very nice, and always greets you. The place has been remodeled since I first started going and could not look better! I too was a member of those high sales pitch chains and believe me...there is no pressure here. The plans are very affordable. You can't go wrong...TRY IT!

Very Nice

I read the previous reviews and decided to try it out. In my opinion it's the best tanning salon in San Antonio. You can tell the owner takes pride in his business.

The BEST salon in SA!

This has got to be the best tanning salon I have visited in San Antonio AND Houston. The prices are great and there is NO sales pressure at all...but even better- the service is phenomenal, the atmosphere is private, the salon is super clean, the beds are high powered, comfortable, and clean! The owner always remembers you and never hesitates to strike up a conversation- very personable! The beds feel like they ""hug"" you. You can listen to whatever radio station you want- more than just 2 preset stations to choose from- or even bring in a CD and you can listen to that! The prices are the lowest around- on the tanning and the lotions! I would highly recommend this salon to everyone. Once you try it, you won't want to go anywhere else! I live on the NW side and work by the airport. I make the drive- its worth it!

No other salon even compares to this one! 10 stars in my book!

No pressure atmosphere, private and very VERY clean!

Been to a few of those ""chain"" salons. They all feel like a ""chain"" salon. Kind of like the Wal Mart of tanning salons combined with a high-pressure Amway sales pitch. Tan-it-Up is obviously different. If the owner isn't there you'll still experience excellent, discreet personal service from the staff. The beds are always sanitized and the linens are fresh & clean. The best part is there's no pressure to lock you in to a service you don't always need. I'd highly recommend this place and I wish they'd build more of them!

I was searching for a tanning salon again. I then remebered my good friend told me she went to this establishment. This by far is a very clean,friendly,no pressure sales, and relaxing salon. You get in and you get out. Like the other viewer, I have been a member of Tanco, former Absoult Tan now Darque Tan. This salon exceeds by far. I recently got my sister to sign a membership for a month. Even though I live NW, the travel is worth it. So pleased! Defintely will recommend this tanning salon.

5 stars!

I wish every business was ran like this place. I think of the show ""Cheers""... Everybody knows your name! I got screwed at TANCO and Darque Tan. Tried this place out and will never leave.
