I have been in your spa for facials, but never tried the hair salon until yesterday. I had a wonderful experience and will be getting my hair done again by Shelby. Great experience and not over priced.

I have one added comment that is related to my daughter, who is in a wheelchair due to an car accident. She is also a regular customer and one time she had to cancel an appointment because she wasn't feeling well. The gal on the phone said, "The Esthetician's time is just as valuable as yours." She made my daughter feel bad and we almost did not come back to your spa. I bring my other daughter to your spa also and I have spent $1,000s. Don't ever do that again.

This review is in regards to my 2nd visit to the spa on the weekend after valentine's day. Unlike my first visit on a Saturday morning, my second visit was late in the afternoon. My masseuse, Jason, is THE best! I had no complaints the first time, and none the second time. He uses the perfect amount of pressure, did not miss a single spot (yes, I was waiting to find something to complain about because it's been a decade since I've found someone who does an excellent job at massaging) and he gave great tips and advice post massage. As for the spa, meh. The quiet room does not have comfy seating. There are a couple of padded benches and several nice massage chairs but they do not recline and there are no ottomans so it's a little awkward trying to sit comfortably whilst in a robe and having to keep your knees squeezed together to keep from flashing other patrons. It's dark with dim lighting which is nice, but it makes it hard to read the massage controls or read a book or magazine. I did find some little flashlights, but the lights were not working and/or you had to press and hold really hard to keep the light on. The water jug was empty for the first 10 minutes. The women's dressing room is nice enough. The towels were old and ragged (frayed, faded, mismatched) which surprised me. The shower head needs to be retired. It is meant to be adjustable to different heights but once you get it into position and tighten the knob, it doesn't hold in place. I vote for a nice rain shower head:-). One last gripe is that they have all the toiletries one would need except for the most important after shower necessity.........LOTION! My husband said he went out to the gals at the reception area and they provided him with some. I, on the other hand, learned of the lack of lotion during my first visit so I packed my own. So, most memorable was the spacious massage room with heated massage table and the excellent 10-star massage given by Jason. I will be back!

I had my best experience at Bella Dora. The entire staff was very accommodating and made our experience very relaxing.

I have been coming to the salon with using Nicole. She is so nice and efficient I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to have services she provides. She does my eyelashes, and she also did my permanent Eyebrows. I highly recommend Nicole.

it was great experience. I really like my facial treatment. the only thing that bothered me bathroom slippers was dirty and bathrobe was old and had holes in it.

Ashley is the best (color, cut, style). I look forward to my appointments, she is warm, friendly (I've been with her for years, we became friends). I've had people stop me and ask, "Who does your hair, it looks great!" That's Ashley! Jane K.

Lovely facility that allows you to begin to unwind before a treatment. The Herbal Wrap / Massage special was pure pampering! I hesitate to share how amazing Teresa is for fear I won't be able to book her in the future :) Her massages are thoughtful, intuitive and therapeutic but also pure luxury.

You have a ROCKSTAR optical manager, Melissa! She is on top of things and is the only person I will deal with. She is happy, positive and always has a kind word to say to everyone. She is hard working and dedicated to her role and I want you to know exactly the gem you have in her. My last experience was not as favorable, but she took the time to drive to the lab to get my glasses so I could have them quicker. She worked hard to smooth things out and she went the extra mile. Thank you Melissa, for being the type of person that I want to come visit when getting glasses
