For those of you who have purchased Groupons before, you know that you may not always be getting what you pay for. Some Groupons are wonderful and you thank God you found such a great deal, while others leave you wondering why you didn’t just pay full price to go to a reputable company you know can deliver. The beauty of Groupons can be that you stumble upon a “hidden” gem that you didn’t even know existed. While I am like the many who have ended up with less than desirable Groupons, I found one of those gems – Extasis Salon in North Royalton.
Sometimes when you buy Groupons, you can have a heck of a time getting an appointment because many businesses sell more vouchers than they can accommodate. When I called Extasis to get our appointment, the receptionist was sweet and able to schedule something for the exact day and time we wanted. When we arrived at the spa this past weekend everyone working was super friendly and nice. I find that on occasion when you are using a service with a Groupon, people rush you and can be rude. They are the polar opposite at this salon.
The Groupon we purchased was $70 (regularly $145) and included a 30 minute massage, a 30 minute facial, manicure and pedicure. The facial was fabulous and calming; plus the products smelled fabulous. After my facial, Phyllis came in and gave me my massage. Now I’ve had plenty of massages over the years and she is in the top two. I will definitely be returning to treat both myself and my fiance for a full hour massage. Once we were fully relaxed, they gave us a pair of slippers and started our pedicures. The technicians took their time and my friend and I were able to gab and catch up. Finally, after our toes were beautified we were shipped off to get our nails done. I chose Malibu Barbie Pink (at least that is what I am calling it) and can’t stop staring at my nails as I type. Throughout the whole process we were treated so well and were never once rushed. They really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome.
I give this Groupon a 100% and would definitely come back and pay full price for the services. Not only are they well worth it, but the the salon is tidy and spacious, with each service having it’s own space. Looking forward to our next spa day at Extasis!
