""I don't usually post reviews, but I have to say that it doesn't get much better than The Harbor Bay Club!
This club has programs for the casual user to the professional trainer and everything in between. It is very family friendly and even provides very reasonable day care.
The grounds are located on the bay and you feel like your in a coastal forest setting any time you look out the windows. I utilize everything, weight room, cardio, tennis, racket ball, swimming, jacuzzi (outdoor and private jacuzzi in locker room) sauna, steam room, massage therapist, Club House ( Camille the manager will make you feel like royalty!).
The locker rooms have all the creature comforts and they pay attention to details, whether you forgot your razor or just need extra towels, they have you covered with a smile on their face.
The club has so many kid friendly programs and summer activities, your kids could enjoy a different experience everyday. Some programs are additional cost, but well worth it.
I have seen some negative comments about staff on yelp, but I have only experienced, professional, knowledgeable and considerate staff there. I have interacted with every different department and entity at one point or another.
For the money, you cannot beat the availability of services here. I have been a member for 10 years and I will be a member for life. i have been to so many supposed full service clubs and they cannot compare to Harbor Bay Club, in quality or affordability..... If you live anywhere near here, this is not an exclusive membership club based on geographic area, all are welcome and as much as I would like to keep this gem, my little secret, I can only in all fairness let others know it is here...""
