Went last weeky to Alora Spa for my first treatment for laser hair removal. My technician,Krista made the experience very easy and comfortable. The laser was non painful and I am already seeing results. I am excited to see more results during my treatment

I have spent a pretty penny at this spa and was quite the fan up until last night. I purchased a laser hair treament via Groupon and started going there fall of last year with no incident or problems. Last night I saw with my own eyes why there are bad reviews about this place. After finishing my first laser hair treament I purchased another treament for a full brazilian. Last night was my second treament and arrived at my appt time. She was backed up quite a bit which is understandable...things happen. But then two women who were both late for their appointments were taken in before me. I'm sorry but if they were late they should be the ones waiting not me. I waited close to 35 minutes to after my appointment schedule because of this. When I get taken in to the back she started ranting to me about her customers and complaining about them. I found this a bit out of line and unprofessional. But that wasn't the icing to the cake. When she finished the front part of my brazilian she was like okay I'm done. I said to her I purchased a FULL brazilian package and my back side is to get done....she sat there to argue with me (while i'm laying there naked) about how a full brazilian does not cover the back area. I then tell her how for my first treament they did do the back area and she went to tell me that it must have not been at her spa. Again I tell her it was there with one of her employees and continues to argue with me (while I'm naked) that I have to pay another $300 to do the rear area. It was all so annoying and confusing and frustrating....if anyone who has ever done a brazilian wax you know it includes everything! I felt like she was trying to get more money out of me...she was very rude and condesending...I even told her to check her chart for what I paid for and she continued to tell me I had it all wrong....this really pissed me off because I specifically remember when I started those treaments to ask both her, her front desk staff and the first girl who did my first treament what a full brazilian laser included...and each of them agreed...now 4 weeks later AFTER I PAID....she tells me the service does not include what I thought. You have to expect the worst when coming here...she definately has mood swings. I've seen her have all out arguements with her employees in front of customers and be rude to her customers as well...now I finally got to experience it first hand. In my opionion she's taking on more then she can handle.

The first time I went to Alora was with a spa package. I've now been a loyal fan and customer for 2 years and counting. After getting 3 facials at DePasquales (who supossedly are the best) my face broke out in a hideous and seemingly uncurable way. I spent thousands of dollars at other spas and on different products, trying to fix what they did. But Patricia is the only person who was able to get it under control and actually heal my skin. She and this spa are worth every penny.I'm very surprised at the negative reviews because I love love love this place. I can only imagine that those people are miserable and impossible to please. Ignore the haters.
P.S. The Ayurveda products are magical! The Rescue Gel is one of my favs!
I tried Alora Spa based on a friend's recommendation. My first visit I had multiple treaments. The massage therapist was friendly and knew exactly how to get me relaxed and ready for the rest of my treatments. My manicure was nice and the facial by the owner, Patty was one of the best I've ever had. Overall, my experience was great! The owner told me about laser treatments which I just started 2 weeks ago. So far the results are awesome! I highly recommend this Spa. It's a little off the beaten path, off of Main Street in Boonton. It's cozy and relaxing. I look forward to coming back many times in the future! :)
I have been taking my fiance to this location for years now and I have also done the couple spa package that they offer and I have nothing but great things to say about this place. I'm not the type of guy that goes to spas but when I spent time with my fiance and felt the tranquility and services they performed I was very surprised and now I know why there is so many people that are addicted in going to spas. I highly recommend Alora Spa for anyone who wants to have a great relaxing Spa moment. Thank you for your services and We'll be seeing you next month.

ALORA AMBIANCE SPA has a grade F by the Better Business Bureau (BBB)!!!!!! This should tell you all what an unprofessional place this is.This spa violates so many laws, I'm so surprised it is even running! First of all, the owner Patricia Rivas is the rudest person any client will come across!! Second, this spa is completely ILLEGAL.Notice all the low prices??? She performs Laser treatments, Botox/Juvederm and Carboxy just to name a few. The NJ State Law requires these procedures to be done under the supervision of a Licensed Doctor or by the Physician himself. There has never been a Doctor present for any of the procedures!! Clients get burned all the time by this so called Laser Technician. She has lawsuits all the time because of her lack of professionalism. Please DO NOT be fooled by the excessive advertising they do for this spa. They are affiliated with groupon, if only they knew who they are dealing with. I asked the receptionist (who was very rude to me) not too long ago about the products they sell and HALF of the products WERE NOT APPROVED BY THE FDA! I was entirely shocked when I found that out. This place is completely harmful to anyone. I have nothing against the owner but for some reason it felt like she had a vendetta against me by the way she would speak to me in such an abrasive matter. All these 5 star reviews are completely false! I cant imagine any client leaving that horrible place happy. As the last client, I'm simply posting a Warning as well. I would never want anyone to go through what I had to endure..

I've recently finished my 6 treatments with the laser hair removal. I couldn't be anymore happy with the results. I saw results within the first couple treatments. The staff is amazing! They are so helpful and polite. I also feel that the pricing is very fair and I love the fact that Patty, the owner is willing to work with you. All around I couldnt be more satisfied! Great staff Great services!

They made me wait for 30 minutes after my appointment and by then I had to leave and he threatened to charge for a ""cancellation."" I was so mad and left thinking there is no way he would charge me but later check my credit card to see that he had charged me twice!! Over $200 worth of ""cancellation."" My cc company credited it back to my account but I still think that's theft!

I've visited many spas in nj and have found aloraspa to be the best. It's small but atmosphere is so relaxing and calming. Everyone from the receptionist to the cleaning staff is pleasant and makes you feel comfortable. I fall asleep every time I go and feel so relaxed when I leave. I can't say that about any other spa I've visited in nj. Try them. I know you'll agree with me.

After I had paid for my wife's services in advance, she was charged again upon completion an additional $17.50 ($2.50 of which is a fee for using a debit/credit card and not paying cash)...The other $15 was a tip that was already charged to my credit card. I called to rectify the situation only for Patricia to get nasty with me and tell me that i did not tip enough the first time ($17.50). In total we paid $35 over the initial cost.
I would not recommend this spa to any (if you have to deal with Patricia)

On Saturday, March 7th, I along with two friends had spa packages, which included a body polish, massage, facial and pedicure. Oftentimes customers, myself included are quick to contact management when the service they receive is poor, but are quiet when they are left happy and satisfied. I will not stay quiet in this case. Let me say that the service we received was superb. Not only did we receive wonderful service, we received it with a smile. Your staff was professional and extremely friendly. The receptionist, while doing her job, chatted with us as we waited for our treatments. The masseuse removed every knot in our body, the person that did the facial was detailed, the individual that did our body polish scrubbed and did a great job exfoliating, and the pedicurist had us leaving there wanting to show off our pedicures. Unfortunately, I do not remember everyone's name. Also, the ambiance is relaxing and serene. I have been to a spa before and that was not the case. However, while at your establishment, I felt like we were the only people in Boonton, left there to relax. We drove two hours from New York to get to Alora Spa and I must say that it was well worth it, thanks to you staff!

When you walk through the doors you immediately feel relaxed. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the services I received were wonderful! The massage was one of the best I ever had & the man/ped was great and my polish lasted, not like some others I had in the past. The facial made my skin feel great and I felt like I looked 5 years younger. The staff is very professional while still being warm and friendly. I would highly recommend this spa to anyone who is looking for a spa experience and doesn't want to feel like they got lost in the shuffle in a big institution like facility.
