I went to this brand new Tuscan Sanctuary using my Travelzoo voucher. My appointment was at 6 but I had to wait 15 minutes to start. The massage was really good but the facial was okay. I liked the private room size. Overall, I liked this place because it's close to my office and easy to get an appointment with them.

Ridiculous! I never follow up with these types of feedback but after reading these posts after I had already been there, was a huge mistake on my part. I should have read first! Just beware before you go and know what other options you have out there. My facial treatment was poor and lacked Aveda quality and standards. I had planned on surprising my grandmother from Tacoma with a spa day, with the intention of taking her here. I'm glad I tried it first. It was really to bad, the Esthetician and staff were just not into friendliness and it made a huge impact on the mood of the salon.

I was feeling blah and decided and needed to give my hair and skin some love. I booked a spa day which was much needed. I felt so at ease with all the girls that work there. They were so attentive and made my day relaxing and enjoyable. Needless to say i had a great time and wanted to let others know that THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO GO!!! LOVED IT!

The worst experience at a spa ever! Terrible customer service, my stylist smelled like cigarettes, my pedicure felt rushed! I am pregnant and so looking forward to a day of pampering. Very disappointing to say the least!

Went in for a color and it was not right at all! I decided to go home and try to fix, look at it under different lighting, etc. Called the manager the next day for help and she told me, "you left happy, nothing I can do now!" I cannot even believe she runs a business in this manner. I am shocked by the whole experience.

The worst experience I have ever had! I don't expect this place to be in business for long if they continue to treat their customers with such rudeness! Aveda should be more "high-end" all I could see/hear was tackiness! Not a retreat at all! When I complained to the manager, I was treated with complete disrespect. Obviously the unprofessionalism comes from the top down.

If I could give zero stars I would. I was treated so poorly and when I complained to the manager she could not have been more rude! It was NOT relaxing. I felt like I was at a community trailer park cut-a-thon rather than a high-end salon! I expect so much more from an Aveda spa. I can't tell people loud enough- STAY AWAY!!!!!!

Very disappointed with the facial and wax service. Service seemed rushed and shortened. I anticipated more attention to the experience of the facial and that the waxing would have been worth the cost of uneven brows and discomfort. I never enjoy leaving a place where as a patron I put the servicer, in this case the esthetician, inconvenienced. I look for comfort and relaxation this certainly wasn't achieved. I noticed that on your main site, only the positive comments were extracted from blogs and user sights, I think it's more realistic to show all feedback and then salon responses/comments to help better business practices.

Wow...not sure why some people gave this place negative reviews. I'm glad I didn't see this before I went in...otherwise I probably would have missed out on some wonderful spa experiences. The staff was very professional and courteous and the atmosphere was very relaxing. The first time I went, I had my first Brazilian wax. I was extremely nervous about it but the esthetician put me right at ease. I have since been back for brow waxes and a facial that was amazing. I have never had my hair cut/colored there because I am happy with my salon, but the people who walk out always look fabulous. Prices are a little high but I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for.

Full service? I suppose that is what you will receive. Front desk was typical of any service, no complaints there.

I was celebrating my Birthday at the spa! The hair color/cut was really spendy for my short hair, Did not encourage the J and Kate plus 8 hair style but pretty sure that is what I woke up with or something similar to it. Even my boyfriend thought I resembled Kate, funny. Color wonderful! Hair will grow out.

Waxing was scary, I get pretty anxious about the whole ordeal to start with but this made it worse. She was not nice to me at all. I think she was having a hard day or something. I was not relaxed and she was in deep space somewhere. I try to be compassionate about that but she was some what irritated when I encouraged laughter. Lacked personality and when she did talk, she talked about herself most of the time.

I agree with the chatter, I think that catty salons went out in the 80s maybe the 90s. It sends a bad message that all you know is to gossip in the salon industry and it made me uncomfortable. Maybe some people enjoy that catty gossip.

I was on a tight budget and it's embarrassing to have to hide that when you are pressured to purchase products that you don't understand. Aveda really didn't have anything I liked. I don't know maybe too much lavender or maybe too much eucalyptus?

I hope that the feedback your customers' leave is helpful. I'm not so sure that I would come back, I am sorry.

I've been a client to this Tuscan Sanctuary since they opened at Indian Summer Golf & Country Club, I live here in the community and love getting my Hair and Pedicures done here , The staff is always helpful and I love the Aveda tea that they serve you while you are waiting. They have weakly specials sent by e-mail , they mention these specials also by the staff that does my hair. I have recommended this salon and spa to many friends and coworkers and will continue to do so.

I admit- I became slightly nervous about my massage appointment after stumbling across the reviews on this site. I decided to go ahead and try it out anyways because they were having a special this month and massages were 50% off.

I was pleasantly surprised with my experience! The woman at the front desk was friendly and professional as was my masseuse. She made sure to ask about how her pressure was, and asked appropriately if I needed anything during my massage.

The only drawback to the atmosphere was that the walls are somewhat thin. I could hear the two women in the next room chatting very clearly for several minutes, and at one point sirens could be heard very loudly outside.

Overall it was a pleasant experience- and I definitely plan on going back to see my masseuse again.

I will never understand the expectation to add a gratuity to poor service. For that I feel embarrassed. The salon prices were much higher than I expected from a small spa like this.

More so, I felt sorry for the woman that provided my services. She was awkward and noticeably trembling while performing her job. Bad day maybe?
Consequently, I do know that I will not trust my very sensitive skin (which I mentioned up front) to someone that lacks facial/waxing experience and second guesses her treatments. I think her intent was to try to be friendly and funny, and she just could not pull it off. Less is more and that includes personal info. TMI...

I have not experienced the hair side of the salon, so I cannot comment on that. My hope is that my feedback gets to the right person to help the business.

I was so excited to try this salon and the hype over the Aveda products. I received a great hair color and cut, but was not so impressed with the attitude of the staff. I did get what I paid for. However, the downside was my facial treatment. It was not what I expected. I think it's interesting that a salon would allow someone to perform their duties as an esthetican with so little personality and so little respect for her client. She needs to understand that customer service is about what the customer is comfortable with and what the client needs. I felt she had no idea what she was doing and was in a hurry for her lunch break or perhaps she had a better place to be. Oh well, I work with a pretty big company and my recommendation will not be for her but perhaps someone who knows their stuff. BTW, to sell me on these products she would have done a better job of describing the needs of my skin rather than the commission she was calculating in her head. Big no no! She also wore her own make up very poorly and with her brown hair and skin like hers, she needed to tone it down, way way down, I could peal it off. Not attractive for a woman her age. Maybe if she was friendlier to me than perhaps I wouldn't have noticed. The Salon needs a few updates but overall, not the worst but not the best either. Aveda was just ok. So, I will stick with my Pureology and other product lines. Thank you for the nice color and cut.

Cons: snotty staff and esthetician

I was recommended to this salon by a friend. I knew that Aveda products were of average quality to begin with, however, if you add very poor service then you're doomed to have an experience that is far less than what you pay. My wax and facial were one of the worst I have experienced. Uneven brows and a very irritated skin surface for more than a week. ouch :( In addition, I thought that the pricing was very high for regular salon services. The front desk staff was very unfriendly and after being pressed so hard to purchase their AVEDA products by the snobby esthetician, I felt like saying, "are you really looking out for my best needs? Or do you care more for your commission check?" I know this is a tough economic climate but you made me feel really uncomfortable. Sorry to be so honest, but I will not be returning.

I'm truly bummed. Sadly, I left very disappointed with my experience at TS. My esthetician was terrible, unprofessional and lacked confidence. Unfortunately, she has a steep learning curve ahead, she lacked the true sense of AVEDA skin products and cosmetics and the clientele's individual needs. To be honest, I felt that I knew more than she did, and for that price? wow! By the look of her own applications and troubled skin, I was worried when she escorted me back. She lacked the personality and knowledge base that true estheticians have in this profession. I was hoping that the overall customer service would have been more upscale since this is what they advertise. I will only be doing hair cuts at GH location from now on.

Being a man I was somewhat unsure as to the type of Salon and Spa this was. I was very surprised! The salon is very gender neutral. The staff treated me well and my haircut with Patti lasted longer than normal. I even had a sport manicure. Loved it. I plan to visit the spa more.

I would recommend this salon to anyone who wants awesome services and a very private location.

Nicest Aveda Salon I have been in. Spa was great for and the massage was very professional and was accompanied with the Aveda foot bath and aroma journey.

I have had 2 haircuts from the staff and as a man I felt very at home without to much of the lady frills. Great talent and products.

The day I was there the Aveda people were there as well. Energy was fun.

I visited the new Gig Harbor location in the Uptown Shopping Center. I made an appointment with a new stylist with their facility. After three hours in the chair, a bleached sweater, an un-even color, and jagged haircut I called the manager the next day to complain. After several rounds with management regarding the issue, they defended their stylist and said that I knew the stylist was "new" suggesting that I should have expected less than a great cut/color. They represent Aveda products and I expect with a high end line of product and the cost of the service that I would have been treated better and definitely received a better result. They in no way treat the customer as a priority! Would not go back nor recommend to anyone.

Ok... so I was reading reviews on what spa to go to in the harbor and went to Jax- Boy was the service and hair cut not at all like I expected. I was extremely disappointed!!! Chop. Chop. So I was told by a friend to go to the Tuscan Sanctuary in the Uptown Gig Harbor. First I went in sceptical to get a hair cut.... I want to cry with happiness. The stylist was amazing, sweet, comforting and knew exactly what I wanted. My hair was full of bounce and my foil was the BEST I have ever had! I was so impressed...my mom and I went back for a spa day and recieved a facial and manicure/pedi.... Angelique ..YOU made my day- GO GIRL!!!! I will never go to JAX again... nice location on the harbor- and professional staff up front- but once you get the service done - you will regret it!!!!

I visited TS new UpTown Gig Harbor location and received the worst haircut of my life. The stylist cut into my neck with a straight razor leaving me with a huge gash across the back of my neck. My wife was furious as was I. When she called to complain the front desk staff told her there was nothing they could do about it and HUNG UP! Ouch!

This is a nice salon/spa in the Indian Summer Golf Course parking lot. It's nice once you walk in - the outside isn't much to look at, but the inside has great colors and smells good as all Aveda places tend to do. I had a french pedicure and leg wax there from a gift certificate I was given in December. The waxing was great, and the technician really knew her stuff. I do recommend this service!

The pedicure, while leaving my feet very smooth, didn't look very good once the polish was applied. The white tip was crooked on several toes, and then while fixing one of them she smudged two others -Arrrgh. Needless to say I was there far longer than I planned to be due to the repair work, but even after the repairs, they still didn't look right, so I had them re-done somewhere else the next day. Can't recommend the french, so if you go, just get a solid color applied!

Just a side bar, the receptionist was gossiping to the nail tech about someone who had just left, and it made me wonder what she might be saying about me after I left. Not a great way to build good will and new clients.

I was recommended by a friend in the area to try this spa and salon, and at first I was a bit hesitant to jump into the Aveda experience (or Aveda "cult" as some would call it), but after having a facial there, I'm a believer! I am a true spa snob, and was an Aveda-virgin until I tried Tuscan Sanctuary. The staff at T.S. were more than friendly, they made you feel like an old friend. Not only that, but the rooms have dimmed lighting and richly colored warm beds to truly prepare you for the scentual journey you are about to take when using an Aveda products. My esthetician was very informative and had truly gifted hands! From beginning to end, I can't think of one bad thing to say about my Tuscan Sanctuary experience.. Loved it!
