This was an experience like no other & I definitely will be going back to see them for some more floats! I had never floated before, but I had watched a video on You tube with Joe Rogan a few years ago & he was talking about some of the experiences he had while floating in the Flotation/Deprivation Tank. He had his float tank set up in the basement of his home. It all seemed pretty weird (but interesting) to me, & since I'm that kind of guy, when I found out there was a flotation tank here in town I decided to check it out. I called & booked an appointment. The business was set up inside of a house & I wasn't really impressed with the outside of the house or the area that they were in, but never mind all of that! It was totally different once I went inside the house. Karen & Steven welcomed me at the door & showed me around. They both made me feel very comfortable & relaxed (almost as if I were in my own home). They explained to me that I would have a few minutes wait as they had a customer finishing up his float session. That was okay because they had a very nice waiting room. They offered me energy drinks & water, so I watched tv for a few minutes until it was my turn to float. When it was my turn to float they asked me if I wanted to float with or without the music & lights. I decided to have the music (no lights). They had Meditation CD's that you could choose from, so I selected one. I took my 15 minute shower & I proceeded on to my floating experience. Because I had never floated before I didn't know what to expect, so It took me a few minutes to relax. I was glad that I had opted for the music. At first, all I could hear was my heart beating really fast, but once I got past that, WOW, what a trip! It was over much to soon. It felt like I was only in the tank for about 10 minutes but I was actually in the tank for over an hour. While I was there, I also used ( & enjoyed) the Dry Sauna. It cost me $25 for the hour that I was in it, but it was so worth it ! Just like the Flotation Tank the Dry Sauna had lights & music in it. All in all, by the time I was done & it was time for me to leave, I was so relaxed & comfortable that I didn't want to get dressed & go home. My only regret was that I didn't take advantage of one of there special package deals, so that I could have spent more time in the flotation tank. I'll be coming back again soon to float, so I'll take advantage of one of those deals then, for sure!
I have been to the original in Munich so I'm really happy to have a Hofbräuhaus right here in Vegas. While it's not an exact replica (and the food isn't quite the same), the true German essence is captured through the boisterous atmosphere, authentic imported beer and decidedly German menu. I love to take out of town visitors here, and I visit a couple of times a year when I'm missing the gorgeous country of Germany -- one of my favorites I've ever visited.You'll find the as-big-as-your-head pretzels and all sizes of cold beer (from bashfully mini to "holy cow" huge), and and certain times during the year there will be a good German band playing live. Even if you aren't a beer drinker, it's just crazy to come here and not order a beer! It's so good and there's something for everyone from super light to the darkest of the dark. Come during Oktoberfest and you can drink their truly exceptional imported specialty beer. Don't forget a designated driver!This is a great restaurant for large groups as the venue is equipped to handle them. Patrons sit at long, shared tables (just like in Munich), so be prepared to make friends! Kids seem to love the place too because they can dance around and jump to the music. The German food is authentic and tasty. Not fantastic but good (and overpriced). There's a great tiny gift shop in the lobby with cool beer steins, stuffed bear toys, funny hats and lederhosen. The waitresses wear just sexy enough drindls, a big plus for the men in your party. I know my husband and his buddy enjoyed taking a shot and getting paddled by one of the ample-bosomed girls on our last visit. Yes, you can get bent over a table and paddled. It's a gimmick but it's funny to watch guys whoop and holler. The mostly concrete beer hall is huge and cavernous (just like in Germany), so be warned that this is not a place to come for an intimate dinner or soft conversation. It is loud, loud, LOUD in there. When the crowds get heavy, the band gets even louder. Pounding on tables, stomping on the floor, drunken singing and shouting out toasts is not only tolerated but openly encouraged. If you know the chicken dance you will have a blast.While the noise is to be expected, the biggest negative is the service; I don't think I've ever had good service here but that's okay. You'll most likely be too busy stuffing your face with pretzels and beer to worry about that!
This review is for the laser hair removal. They offer other services, but I have not tried them. Anywho, I bought the Groupon like several other reviewers. I have tried laser hair removal in the past with American Laser Center. A complete waste of money. Live and learn, so I researched the different lasers available for hair removal since there are several in use. I have a medium complexion, and as such, was told that several lasers were not usable on my skin. Several lasers are only usable on pale skin because the lasers target the pigments in the hair, thus why most places tell you that pale skin and dark hair make for the best result. Pearl MedSpa uses the Alma Soprano XL laser, which is by far the best available with a much quicker treatment time than any other laser out there. Second, it is appropriate for darker complexions. I emailed Pearl MedSpa to inquire which laser they used before purchasing the Groupon. A little research goes a long way. I have had 3 treatments on my lower legs and there is already a noticeable difference. I go in every six weeks, because that is the recommendation based on hair growth cycles. The laser isn't painless, but they offer numbing cream for an additional cost. During my first appointment, I was asked if I would like to purchase additional areas. It's a business, of course. I politely declined and was met with the response of, "You want to see results first." I said yes and they didn't ask again. When I went back I told them I noticed results even after the first treatment and she responded, "I know, this is the best laser." No pressuring on the upsell, which surprised me in all honesty. The laser really does sell itself with results. In addition, the establishment is very clean. The towels smell fresh, there is always a new sanitary sheet on the bed, and nothing is out of place. If only my house was as organized and immaculate. I have always been met with politeness. Even when I arrived 20 minutes late, embarrassed and begging forgiveness. I didn't even get the angry face. They just laughed and said it was OK and took me back. We both griped about the traffic that day (4th of July weekend). My fault for not planning ahead. Basically, do your research on the laser and what to expect, and you will not regret a laser hair removal purchase here!
I'm going to chalk this review up to growing pains and I promise to revisit this location again soon, but my first visit to Farmer Boys was less than successful. I'm so happy to have a nice new burger joint on the Southwest side of town, but this place was more of a miss than a hit with me. And I know my burgers!Let's start with the positives: the place is spotlessly clean. I mean "I'd have zero qualms about eating off the floor" kind of clean. That's a pretty major feat considering I visited at 12:30 on a Tuesday during peak lunch rush hour. The place was packed, there wasn't any seating, but it was super clean. The interior design is very welcoming and comfortable too...if you can find a seat! I asked for my burger wrapped in lettuce low carb style and there was no confusion, so yay for that. Now for the not so good: the menu is a little confusing if you are a first timer. Step back and really study it. Lots of choices, and it doesn't make sense what you get with what. Like can I have fried zucchini if I get a combo, and how many do I get? Nobody could give me a definitive answer. The employees were confused too -- they didn't know what was supposed to come on my burger (and subsequently left the avocado off of my avocado burger). We also had to ask several times for silverware and a side of mayonnaise. When I finally got the kitchen to give me the missing avocado, I was handed a cup of mashed up avocado instead of the pretty slices shown on the menu photos. It still tasted good so I didn't care, but I think this is worth noting.None of these complaints are that serious, but there was one big problem with my meal: it simply didn't taste very good. The food tasted fresh, but it was so bland. It was like the cook forgot to season my meat and zucchini. It was so weird! I don't cook with salt at home -- I actively avoid eating it -- but I had to reach for the salt (something I NEVER do). Freddy's, Fatburger and Smashburger all make more delicious burgers.I really want to give Farmer Boys another chance, and I think they deserve one. But I wanted to share my first impressions for now.
I searched Las Vegas for the BEST permanent makeup artist. I found her. Let me start off first with saying that I had thought for many years about getting my eyebrows done. I naturally have a few blond hairs and drew them on every day. it took about 30 minutes and they were never straight. I hated pictures because somehow it always looked even more uneven in them. My kids even teased me! They call me crazy eye! I had seen some unattractive work on more than one occasion. I got the courage to go in for a consultation after I had seen Theresa's 3d eyebrows on a girlfriend. It looked great. I scheduled a consultation and was sold. I have been in for my appointments and it went great. I'm all healed and feeling like a million bucks. I can get into the pool or work out and never have to worry about my eyebrows going bye bye. No more "crazy eye" and I have an extra 30 minutes in the morning. I LOVE MY EYEBROWS NOW! No doubt I am a loyal and forever grateful client of Theresa but may I also give a shout for the other staff at Axiom. I have seen Julie for a facial that I loved but she isn't there anymore. Dr. Youmans did my first botox treatment there and it was a wonderful experience. I had some waxing and eyelash extensions from Tierney. I have seen Cami for my facials and I think she is the best aesthetician ever. I also got to get teeth whitening with Mason and he is just a doll. The treatment was outstanding and really affordable. I want to say, I am a loyal client and I really like it here. The staff is down to earth, friendly, casual and there is no snobby or stuffy vibe. It is a straight forward service oriented place and good people. The scheduling system is nice because it is web based. With all the fly by night places that come and go in Las Vegas, this place has lasted and I have been a client starting with Theresa for almost 8 years now. This is the only place I trust with my face.
There are far better places. While I wouldn't go across the street to either of those complexes for a variety of reasons, the complex next door, the townhouses a little further up with the blue tops and the Condos a bit further up are better choices. The rent is more reasonable. Plus the townhouses include some utilities. There is a major bug problem at the Avion. According to the office, the reasons given range from "Our grass is green" to "The cars on Lake Mead disturb their home underground so they come here". If either of those excuses had any basis in fact, then every place in the area would be as infested. And this is the only complex in this area that is infected to this extent. There were dings in appliances, black scrath marks on the floor. paint inside the phone outlet so I had to rely on cell phone for the year I was here.They never gave my friend who recommended me her "recomendation money". The plumbing is horrible. I had to wait over a week for someone to fix my toilet. Good thing I had a two bathroom unit. The garbage disposal had a hole which became bigger and bigger to the point of flooding my kitchen. I had to wait over a week for that to be fixed. I would not want any friend of mine to live here if I valued that person as a friend. In the year I have lived here, 10 families I know personally moved out and three of the four units directly connected to this building were empty for close to 7 months before finally being rented. In conclusion: Not a good place...office personnel snotty..manager snobby...cannot keep maintanance personnel; constantly shorthanded...bug infested with both spiders and roaches.
I have lived in Terra Cotta for a long time. I can assess Terra Cotta is really close to banking, dining, shopping, and off course the strip, plus right on public transportation for those who may needed. One of the features I am most impressed, is that I love the floor plan, with a spacious, ample kitchen "nook" with very comfortable and plentiful covers.The moving paperwork process is extremely easy to fulfill with reasonable qualifying terms, and when you have time constrains due to a move that can be a blessing, specially when you feel no pressure due to a very low, or virtually no deposit to move in.The A/C. system is second to none, blowing cool almost immediately, with available maintenance even at odd night hours.I enjoy my stay here, because is out of the way of the main traffic flow of near by busy roads, yet, close enough to most key locations.My apartment related issues were always promptly resolved by the manager. She is always eager to greet and solve the residents issues personally on any given concern the residents may have. Also the manager is always easily reachable either at the managers office or via cell phone even after hours. So manager's help is always one phone call away and willing to meet with a smile no matter how heavy her load work is.It is a nice, comfortable apartment complex with a great location, and easy affordability, near the heart of the strip, making access to the community an easy step from almost any side of town with a relaxing atmosphere. I can attest to this with assurance that it is great comfortable environment to live on.
I moved in last year, and this place is great! I have a large dog. So when I moved to Las Vegas, I found out very quickly how hard it was going to be, to find not only a home for myself, but also a place that would allow me to have my dog. And after a few day of searching, I started to get truly frightened that I wasn't going to find a place for the both of us! I work at the Wynn, and another employee told me, she had the same problem when she was looking for a place. Check out - "Hampton Garden -They Love Large Dog's - She said! So I did. And to my amazment! Not only do they LOVE large dog's! They also really like Wynn employee's too. When I rented, they waived my application fee and my security deposit, because I work at the Wynn! That really help with my move in cost's. Once I moved into my apartment. I quickly found out how great this place is! The place is so clean, for having large dog's living here. My old apartment community never looked as good as this place! And I was paying way more rent, then I am now! The staff is so friendly ("You have to meet Daniel!"). They always have a smile and big hello for me. Everytime I go by the office to get my mail. It's really nice to feel welcome. The maintenance guy's are so good! Their very good at what they do and I have never had to wait more then a day to get a work order done! They change my light bulbs, when they go out. Or change my air filter, when ever I ask. The same day service, from them is such a blessing. I just wanted you to know, how happy me and my dog are, living at Hampton Garden!
You know, when you rent from a property management company, they kinda have you by the balls. Wether you like it or not.We rented a house from Silver State. We were there a year, paying our $2100/mo rent for our 3 bedroom house. Correct, not cheap by LV standards. We paid early every month, and were great tenants by any standard.Upon moving out, we had $450 taken out of our deposit to "clean up the yard" A yard that was in atrocious condition when we moved in, clearly neglected. We paid a ton to get it back into presentable shape, planted plants. It was better than when we moved in! Granted we moved out during a windy month, so there may have been leaves, but NOT $450 worth of leaves!!!But what is most annoying is you cannot do a thing about.They have you, and can take your money. You have no say!Ignoring the fact that we paid $1400 to clean up BLACK MOLD from the property, that they refused to do.Ignoring the fact that we paid to have stucco repaired and painted on the front of the house.Ignoring the fact that we paid to have the irrigation system repaired to work properly, even after repeated requests to fix it.Ignoring the fact that we paid to get the landscape lighting system up and working again.Ignoring the fact that we had to paint walls that when we moved in were red, orange, & green, bringing them back to a neutral palette.Ignoring the fact that the house was immaculate upon moving out, even though we had already pre-paid a $250. "move out" cleaning fee.Damon Botticelli and Silver State Realty should be ashamed of taking advantage of good tenants!!
I'm a coffee snob, there's no doubt about that. I'll admit it. It all started when I first traveled to Italy and I tasted a REAL espresso. There's no turning back from that, and Starbucks just doesn't cut it. There's a REASON there aren't any Starbucks stores in Italy!Sambalatte is a place where they understand good coffee. Each beverage is hand crafted so it's not a place to go if you are in a hurry. I don't mind if the baristas take their time making my coffee, it just goes to show how important it is to them to put out a good cup. It's pricey ($4.50 for a cappuccino) but it's GOOD. This coffee might not significantly change your life, but it'll make you much happier than a Starbucks run would. Give it a try if you are at the Monte Carlo!Make sure you order your coffee to enjoy in the store, not to go. You'll be treated to a real cup, a proper sized portion, and gorgeous coffee art! A cappuccino is worth it just for the pretty presentation! This location has a fantastic attached outdoor patio so on a nice day, sit outside and linger while enjoying some of the best people watching in the country. On nice evenings, there's sometimes a band that plays right outside so you get the bonus of a free show too.I love this place and I love their coffee. I frequent both locations (the one in Summerlin mostly). I'm so happy that this Strip location has opened because our tourists can now enjoy this yumminess.
