Well, Groupon Community -- it's happened. Money spent, phone lines disconnected, money gone. Any idea if there is any recourse through Groupon?

BTW -- when they WERE open, no one would ever actualy answer the phones, nor return messages. It's no small wonder that this place is out of business.

I recently went to Terra Del Sol for a service and I was treated with respect from the staff. I recieved a spray tan for my vacation and was happy walking out. While on vacation my spray started peeling off, I looked diseased! Not exactly what I had expected or was warned about at the time of the service. I am very fearful of going back after reading all the negative reviews. I have only heard bad things about the owner and how she runs her business...Is it worth another try? Thoughts?

I went to the spa with my whole family and it was the best spa experience that we ever have had. My brother and sister had their first massage and they enjoyed it a lot. We rented the grotto with all my family and it was a great time and perfect place to spend time together. The people who helped us and serve us were very nice. Thank you very much Terra Del Sol. My family and I will have another reunion at Terra Del Sol very soon.

I tried to like Terra Del Sol. I really did.

My husband and I had a day of relaxation, we booked facials and massages.
The spa is large and well decorated. The front desk staff was ok, getting us wine right off the bat.
We were allowed to use the grotto- two pools, a suana and this sand room. Pools were o-k. The "cold dip" was more luke warm than cold. I've never been one for steam though so we hung out in the sand room for a while. Just hot with bright lights. The mural was pretty.
We got light "appetizers" which is more crackers and cheese.

Our massages were good and the therapists were attentive.
My facial went great. The rooms are decorated nicely; however sound travels very well in this spa. Doors, a chime bell, walking, and the therapist next door to you, can all be heard.
It was however, my hubby's first facial. He has a very sensitive beard area and is very prone to ingrown hair. He said the facial/shoulder massage was nice and he loved the steam machine they use, but they put something on him for an exfoliant that made his face itch and burn slightly. I was surprised to see him afterwards looking very red/flushed. This continued all day, and well into the night. The next day there was visible irritation to his neck, jaw and hairline. Not exactly the purpose of a facial.

Overall, this place was just o.k. Small things added up to just an all over "eh" experience. Good effort, not quite there. I'm still trying to find a great Portland Spa, and I don't think this is it.

I thought I was going for a relaxing day at the spa, but it ended up being a nightmare!!!

Making the reservations alone was a hassle. I was placed on hold several times. The girl who was helping me seemed very confused and didn't know what she was doing.

When I finally came in for my treatment, the owner there standing over the receptionist but never once jumped in to help when it was clear the receptionist had no idea what she was doing.

After checking in I was taken on a tour, but was not shown where to go before my treatment or told how long I would be waiting.

When I was finally seated in the "grotto area" by someone who saw me standing around looking like a lost puppy, I waited for over over an hour and 20 minutes for my half ass facial.

When I left a tip, the owner was once again at the front desk and had to grab another employee since the receptionist was not there, because she did not know how to ring it up.

I was really disappointed especially for the amount I paid. I would expect much better service. The only good thing was the four glasses of wine they served me! Great place to catch a free buzz!!!!!

Terra del Sol spa has some good qualities, and as long as everything goes right for you, it's a nice enough place to go. However, if you have any problems with your services whatsoever, you will be deeply disappointed with their customer service. As other reviewers noted, you have to pay up front for your services, which means that you pay full-price no matter how late or poor or completely wrong your service is. You could wait until the end to tip your technician, but the problems with this place are with the management, not the technicians, so that's punishing the wrong person.
My friend and I visited the spa recently and were told we were not scheduled for the treatments we had booked, nor could we receive treatments from the technicians we had requested (who we were told were available when we booked our day). This was, of course, AFTER we had paid for the services we had booked. When we said we wanted to cancel the service that they were willing to give us (that we didn't want!) we were told we'd be charged a cancellation fee because it was less than 24 hours notice!
An email to the management resulted in an insulting response, with a long paragraph explaining to us how we should have booked our services differently (apparently it was OUR fault that they couldn't do the services we had scheduled) and a minimal apology for the problems we encountered. We were told they are a growing business and sometimes clients will experience their "growing pains"
So, buyer beware! Because there are no refunds, no attempts to correct mistakes, and generally no common decency available from this business.

My husband and I went to Terra Del Sol for an 80 minutes couples massage. They had us pre-pay before the massage itself and cut the massage short by 20 minutes. Our appointment started at 4:30pm, we were let go from the massage at 5:30pm We should have been done by 6pm. The difference in cost of this is $100. The receptionist as well as the therapists admitted the fault, and told us they could offer us a gift certificate, not a refund. We did not want a gift certificate and asked for a refund. They asked us to call the next day to resolve the matter. I called the next day and the owner said that the massage was only cut short by 7 minutes and they could not issue any refund. They offered us a free couples massage which we booked, but then had to cancel. When I called back to rebook the free massage, the owner said that we had missed our opportunity and there was nothing they could do for us. She was extremely rude to me, and to my husband and told us she was refusing us service.

The name of the owner is Christi Wuthrich -- beware. She is a HORRIBLE person.

I had never been to a first thursday and thought it would be a great idea for a girls night. To my suprise apparently having a scheduled appointment time didn't mean you would be getting any of your treatments at that time. In fact our treatments were 1hr and 2+hrs , late.. Though if we wanted we could have paid even more money to enjoy the grotto ??? Quite disappointed with our mini mani/pedi's(the tech wasn't personable(I think she asked me 1 question the entire time) and it felt like she just didnt want be there. By the end I just wanted to go home- it was much more of a hassel trying have a evening of fun/relaxation. I have been here many times before for regualr treatments and had great service, but I for sure will not be returning to a First Thursday. Walk-ins are not welcome, in fact the person at the desk said appointments fill as soon as the email goes out, so Im not sure why they post that on their website. Disappointed and I will not at all be recommending a First Thursday to anyone.

I'm 7 months pregnant - so to treat myself and my mom (she's going to come stay with me for 2 weeks after baby is born!) i booked facials and hour massages for the both of us. I was so excited about this day, I actually booked the appointments 2 months in advance. My Mom had a great experience, which I was really happy about. My facial was terrific, but my pre-natal massage was HORRIBLE.
To start, the therapist brought me into the room late. When we got into the room, she told me the only "equipment" she had for me was a pillow to put in between my legs (I was told this spa had special tables for pre-natal massages) and my bump is very big for 7 months!!! Considering too, laying on your side when large and pregnant is NOT comfy! After I changed and got on the table, I told her I needed something to prop my head on as all the blood was rushing to my head laying on my side- so she took another 5-10 minutes to get me another pillow. By this time, we are 15 minutes into my scheduled time (i'm losing).
The massage started out OK - the left side of my back got a "decent" massage...then she did a horrible massage on the rest of my body......then finished. Didn't do the entire right side of my back - which is what I told her i wanted the massage for!!! My back is killing me!!! She even ended early, so all in all, I only got about a 35 minute massage.
Now, I spent over $300 on this pampering day -- and when I told the gentleman (which, by the way was very helpful and friendly) at the front desk about my massage - he said he would have the manager call me -- which NEVER HAPPENED. I was there on March 27th, so it's been a month.
Had the manager called me back, I would consider coming back...but now I'm just really disapointed and may never come back. It's sad that someone can take $300 from their customer, but not make things right when the services are not up to par.
Very dispaointed......

I was a frequent customer of Nirvana Apothecary & Day Spa for many years and when I when a dear friend of mine purchased a gift certificate for me to Terra Del Sol, I was hoping for a similar wonderful experience as I was used to at Nirvana. Wow! Was I blown away by my expectations and more upon walking into this little hidden secret in Portland. There is simply nothing else like the enviance apart from every spa I have frequented in the area. I had two amazing treatments by two incredibly accomplished technicians (esthetics and massage) and then was treated to a soaking in the grotto and steambath following my treatments. The friendly staff waited on me hand and foot and even brought an appetizer tray and wine to me while soaking. The very attractive and hospitable owner even made her way over to meet me upon check out. I didn't even want to leave! It was simply one of the best spa experiences I have ever had in this spa saturated town and I will highly recommend this experience to all of my concierge and collegue contacts without hesitation...

After reading all the reviews how could you not want to book an appointment, I know I did! But don't be fooled take a closer look at these reviews they are all worded far too closely.... I think someone (aka the crazy owner) is having her staff write glorified reviews. The staff are programed like robots, they have no personality at no fault of their own I think their afraid of the owner. This Chrsty lady is seriously off her rocker, she hires and fires like nobody's business there's always new people working there and talk about hover over your shoulder. Spare yourself and go somewhere else... for the price their so not worth it!

I don't know where to begin. I love this place. Frankly, I can't really afford it - or any spa - at this time in my life but I make it work about 3x/year (and my husband knows to get me gift certificates there!) because what it does for stress is SO WORTH IT. I always get the 80 minute massage and then sit in the grotto afterward. The price of the massage may be a tad higher than at other places, and I almost put that down as a "con," but the grotto is included which makes it waaaay worth it for what you get, since I'd pay just to use it! It's like being transported to another place and time - a very roman baths feel or maybe it's an ancient tomb feel (nice dim lighting too, which can be adjusted) but whatever it is, it's amazing. You sit in this very large (small pool-sized) jacuzzi next to a beautiful tiled wall with tea candles and they bring you wine or champagne or tea or a few other options, with appetizers, and the ceiling above slowly changes colors and has stars! Bordering cheesy? Nope - it's fantastic. For my 40th b-day last weekend, 11 of my girlfriends and I split the cost to rent out the grotto. We got treated like royalty and everyone was giggling hysterically about how we can be so stressed out one minute as moms living in chaos, not a 5-10 minute drive away, and the next thing we know we're at this insanely relaxing other world being spoiled to death. Everyone had different-shaped and sized bodies (we all wore swimsuits) and some were a little self-conscious about it/hesitant about coming but suddenly no one cared anymore...thanks in part to the wine? ;) and we just had a blast. The lavender smelling steam room is another real treat - as is the sauna, cooling bath (up to your neck, standing) and the light-therapy room w/ warm sand to lie on! It's also nice to go alone, as I do on Mother's Day, or with just one friend. And one of these days I want to bring my husband and do the couples massage!

My only real complaint is that they're not open for massages later at night. But then I suppose most places aren't. I just like a good massage before bed and it seems that can only be found in big cities or fancy hotels where they come to your room. I think they'll stay open late for large groups though - or maybe those special nights when they have live music?

Pros: Best pampering experience ever

The spa is absolutely wonderful! From the moment you walk through the door, you are totally transported to a different world. I have frequented spas all over the world and this is at the top of my list of favorites. The treatment rooms are soothing, comfortable and very well equipped. I have been quite pleased with each of my service providers; they are always very caring and quite knowledgeable in their field. The crowning jewel of this spa is, for me, the wonderful grotto area complete with roman tub (including snacks and beverages poolside), cool dip pool and large steam room. Do yourself a favor a schedule a treatment as soon as you can!

This is absolutely your best bet if you are going to the spa. From products, to services and staff, this is where you will get your money?s worth. They exceed my expectations every time and I'm sure you will have the same experience! This place has been my sanctuary and escape from the busy and chaotic world for the past year, a great escape, relaxing indulgence. You owe it to yourself to visit. My favorite is the grotto experience. Every time I visit I am the only one there, they make sure your experience is private and personal, every time. They even serve appetizers by the pool; the staff really treats you like royalty. I love the sand and sun room; it's like a mini vacation!
Thank you Terra Del Sol staff for always being so sweet and going above and beyond!

Terra del Sol was not my first choice when it came to getting a haircut in the Portland area. I originally thought they were just a spa that catered to expensive women. But many rave reviews about their employees, atmosphere and overall business led me to them. What?s more, after receiving what can only be described as the greatest haircut of my life, I can think of no other business I will ever go to. I recently moved into the area after spending the previous four years visiting just one hair specialist whom I thought to be irreplaceable.

Oh, how wrong I was. I plan on returning every three to four weeks! I was also recently gifted a massage gift certificate ? if the masseuse is anything like the woman who cut my hair, I am most certainly in for an unparalleled treat!

Now, after seeing some of the not-so-positive reviews on this site I am incredibly perplexed. Just because a building used to be utilized for something else in the past means it must stay that way? In today's real estate market (especially in larger cities!) it is simply not feasible to rip down a perfectly sound building just to rebuild. I could think of nothing better to cleanse the bad memories of a building than by creating a place where people go to feel better.

Conversely, some of these ?reviewers? appear to be ex-employees. They claim to know other employees who show disdain toward their (former) employee? Perhaps they were let go (much like I can only assume the ?review?-writers were) because they failed to meet the high standards an upper-echelon spa like this requires?

Needless to say, they're really going out of your way to denounce such a respected, reputable and one of my favorite businesses in the Portland area. I take it personally when people lie about something I love. I can only assume these are disgruntled former employees.

Terra del Sol was not my first choice when it came to getting a haircut in the Portland area. I originally thought they were just a spa that catered to expensive women. But many rave reviews about their employees, atmosphere and overall business led me to them.

Pros: great staff, awesome service, attention to detail

Cons: pricey

Terra del Sol spa is a thoroughly enjoyable oasis in the center of Portland, a place where you can relax and de-stress in a caring, tranquil, peaceful environment while feeling pampered and cared for.

The decor of Terra del Sol is a lush and whimsical amalgamation of vacation locales. Safari, Riviera, Ancient Greece, and a little bit of Vegas opulence combine to make you instantly feel you've completely left the world outside...especially when the weather outside is cold, rainy, and gray. The staff is doting, caring, and seem to all genuinely love what they do...a rarity in many spa/salons.

This is the special-occasion spa my husband and I choose, to treat ourselves or each other when the opportunity arises. The owner and staff take great joy in providing a singular exceptional experience for you and/or your loved one. To be able to unwind in the swimming pool-like hot tub before or after treatments is magnificent and restorative.

A Terra Del Sol visit is perfect if you want an escape, a vacation, but can't realistically take one due to time or budget. You leave the Spa feeling as if you've been gone a few days, rather than a few hours. I have highly recommended this spa to bridal parties, soldier's wives, first-time spa goers, veteran spa goers, athletes, elderly people, and the Ultimately Stressed, and never heard a disappointed word back.

TDS offered a free couple?s massage or gift certificate twice after "1 no show". Penelton refused. TDS can not satisfy these clients.Todd states he uses the Nike name to demand cash back when traveling to restaurants and spas all over the world.Beware! These scammers may be coming to a spa or restaurant near you.

Well first off Terra del Sol is way over priced. They owner had her own line of products created that she charges an arm and a leg for and after spending some time testing them out, as a skin care specialist I have to say I was not impressed. I was requested the Peal facial, and no where in the description does it let you know the smell of the product is a very potent black liquorish, which I hate... the product made my face burn and the results could have been achieved just as easily using drugstore products. The managers and owner of the spa have a very fake, demeaning, pageant like personality. I have been there 3 times due to a gift card, and their employees come and go more frequently than I. My first massage was done by a girl who smelled horrible of sour milk, and did not use enough pressure leaving me completely unsatisfied. It is also apparent that the design of the space was done by someone with no real experience or taste, one minute I'm in Morocco the next, Greece... it is a strange combination filled with a whole heap of tacky, like the animal print they have everywhere. Its a good thing I came with a gift card because after seeing the actual prices of the treatments I completely lost my breath... 75 DOLLARS FOR A PEDICURE, done by a girl a year older than myself!!! COME ON! The only thing I did like was the time you get to spend in the grotto before a treatment. I did enjoy the free wine and snacks, and its hard to find a hot tub in portland, however, their sun and sand room is a joke. One of their treatments charges 35 dollars I think to lay in a room the size of a closet with a tacky mural painted on the wall, sand on the ground and the heat on. It was embarrassing.

OVERALL, spare yourself the time and money. The owner is so rude and fake. The products aren't worth crap, treatments are incredibly over priced (remember 75 for a pedicure) and a tacky set up.

I give this place less than a year before they have to shut the doors.

I have visited Terra del Sol on several occasions over the past year with a pleasurable experience resulting each time. In getting either an independent or couples massage, I have been happy with the treatments received. Having only been to a half dozen or so other spas in the Portland area my comparison base is somewhat limited, however, with that said, the treatments were on par to those offered elsewhere. Where Terra del Sol shines brightest is in the service and facilities it provides. From my initial entry into the building the employees were very polite and attentive. In not feeling rushed or over oversold services, I was able to have a truly relaxing treatment. Although I did see other visitors while at Terra del Sol, I did not feel overly crowded or have to wait for shower and/or a locker to become available, a situation I unfortunately experienced at one of the other spas in town.

It is quite apparent that a significant amount of detail went into the design of their facilities, in particular the grotto area. Soaking in the pool with an adult beverage while taking in the color adjusting sky ceiling, unique color palette chosen by the painters, and travertine enriched grounds makes for an immersing experience. Overall, I have been pleased with my past experiences and intend visit Terra del Sol again.

My spa experience at Terra Del Sol was by far the best I've ever had. I was kindly greeted by the front desk staff with a cup of tea before my massage with Alex. I was led down to "the Grotto" with Alex, which was beautiful. In the grotto area I was taken to a massage an extremely comfortable massage room with a warmed massage table. Alex gave me a fantastic massage and focused on areas where I needed it the most. I nearly fell asleep! After my massage I was able to spend some time in the Grotto, where I was served wine and utilized the steam room, the jacuzzi and the cold plunge. The Grotto is such a unique space and it was incredible. I had a wonderful experience at Terra Del Sol.

Thank you Terra Del Sol, for making me feel like a new woman! Thank you Julie, for my AMAZING massage, which sent me to a far-off place. Thank you Emileigh, for allowing me to doze off a few times during your soothing facial--Never have I felt like I was melting into the bed and never have I left a spa with such a glow. Thank you Rebekah for making my hands and tootsies as soft as silk!

The spa chair, the music, the Grotto, the luxurious robes, the cheese, the wine, the olives, the sweets--are you sure I was in rainy Portland and not on my favorite island, Santorini?

Thank you Terra Del Sol for your attention to detail, for making me feel like a princess or better yet, Cleopatra or Persephone. Most of all, thank you Christi, for showing me what being 'pampered' really means. I don't have just one reason to come back, I have a hundred. I will be back sooner than you can say 'spa'.

This was my first visit to Terra Del Sol Spa. This spa is right here in our own back yard in NW Portland and is just exceptional and took my breath away! I have been to many Spa's all over the world and I'm extremely picky and have high expecations during my Spa visits. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with Terra Del Sol Spa on all levels.

The owner took personal care and time with us to make sure we had a complete tour of the Spa (and let me tell you, it's incredable) Christi (the owner) is truly a visionary and was able to take that vision and turn into something so unique and devine to the Spa industry and specifically Spa's here in Portland.

All the staff is incredible! The entire staff was amazing and treated us like queens. All of our treatments started on time and were given nice amounts of time. Not rushed thru like so many other spa's I've been to. They brought us snacks and kept the beverages flowing during our mani's and pedi's.

The Spa is designed in such a way that you just don't want to leave. It's all the little touches that make it so special. You can visit the "Grotto" or head to the "Beach" and soak up the the heat of the sand.

I would highly recommend setting up an apt. and experiencing something like you've never experienced in a spa before! You won't regret it!!! I didn't!

I visited this spa a few months ago when my dad first died and had a great massage by Zack. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I had every intention of going back until today. I booked a same day appt for massages and to my dismay when i called back to specify the type of massage they said I was not on the books and would call me back. Kristy, the OWNER (who originally booked the appt) of the salon called me back. And said she understood someone had a problem with a male massage therapist, before I could talk she talked over me saying she could book me at way later in the day or a different day. After attempting to clear up confusion of the situation, she started to get extremely rude and demeaning. She continued calling me "sweety" in a condescending tone and continued to talk over me. I asked her to stop calling me sweety that it was unprofessional and she said "when you open your own business you can run it the way you want to." I have never been so infuriated and shocked at a lack of professionalism. I told her that her staff was great and could learn a thing or two from them. I will never be going back hear, despite their great massages. I have no intention of supporting a business owner of this kind.

If you haven't had a hot stone massage by Alexsis at Terra del Sol Spa, you MUST! Her technique, knowledge and skill at massaging you with warm stones is EXCELLENT. Her massage table is warmed, and she takes very good care of you! She intuitively knows what areas of your body need the most work. She is an excellent therapist and I will definitely return for more hot stone massages. The whole experience at Terra del Sol Spa is wonderful! If you haven't been, you must go!

Regardless of what these other moronic women might think, Terra Del Sol is fantastic. I have been to many Spas in town, Terra Del Sol Spa is a unique place for relaxation, excellent facials and massages. I love the people here, they know exactly what they are doing. Clean, friendly, always open, reasonably priced for an upscale salon. The service was very nice, before I even made it downstairs for my massage they offered me a cup of their amazing tea. For something special and different try the socking pool and the steam room.
This was an amazing experience and I would recommend Terra Del Sol to anyone who wants to sneak away from their crazy schedules for a moment of relaxation. Don't knock it before you try it.

I have been to many spas in the area, and Terra Del Sol Spa is truly a unique experience! It features everything you could ever ask for in a spa and much, much more! The interior and exterior of the building are totally amazing! The Grotto has a wonderful jetted hot tub that sits beneath fiber optic stars! It is filled with Greek columns, waterfalls, and gorgeous tile work. You will really feel like you are relaxing in a high end Mediterranean resort. The owner hasn't spared a touch of painstaking detail anywhere.

From the moment I first arrived I was greeted by friendly, smiling staff and a relaxing environment. The massages are all amazing. The owner and staff are extremely accommodating in every way. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. Each of my experiences have been worth every penny.

Tired of the Portland rain? The Sun and Sand room is a special experience unique to Terra Del Sol. It has a heated sand floor, bright, re-energizing lighting, and incredible hand painted walls. I love sitting in the hot and cold tubs before and after my treatments, as it is included. My treatments at Terra Del Sol have been the most relaxing of my life!

If you visit one spa in Portland, you owe it to yourself to check out Terra Del Sol!!! You will NOT be disappointed! Thank you Terra Del Sol!!!

I've been going to Terra Del Sol since it opened and not once have I left feeling disappointed! The staff is always friendly and professional, the massages are TO DIE FOR and you can't beat the relaxing atmosphere! The grotto is beautiful, especially the Sun and Sand room which is PERFECT for people who have Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD,) like myself. The hot tub is a perfect place to relax while you wait for your appointment, glass of wine in hand and food plate to devour.

Today I had an awesome 50 minute massage which left me feeling very relaxed. I always go to Terra Del Sol for all of my massages, waxing, hair, and facial treatments. There is nothing that compares!!!

I just had the "Moroccan Mud Wrapsody". If you have been thinking about getting a full body massage, the Moroccan is the one to get. I was washed with sea salt, painted with basaltic mud, steamed under a canopy, and then massaged with oils, all for over an hour! The feeling of my skin being so clean and healthy with my muscles being relaxed from the massage was pure heaven. And all of this was done in a dimmed private setting with very soothing music flowing through the room.

My tired feet were also treated to the Cinque Terra Footbath. First my feet were washed from a fountain that showers down from the ceiling, and placed in a hammered copper tub filled with very warm stones. Next I had an exfoliating scrub from the knees down, mud painted on, then wrapped and covered in hot towels. Afterwards the mud was washed away and I chose a mint oil to be massaged in. I can't remember a time my feet felt finer. Total Luxury.

I can't say enough about the incredible employees and owners of Terra Del Sol. Everyone goes out of their way to make your time spent the best it can be. I love this place!

I definitely give this spa a full 5 star recommendation. After a long work week I found myself needing a day to relax so I made an appointment at Terra Del Sol Spa and Salon. Christi and her staff were absolutely wonderful. I've never seen so many nice smiles. Everybody there was in a great mood and I felt like a King for my entire stay. Drinks were available and that was a very nice touch as well. I went for the back facial first, which I had never had done before, and it was amazing...like a facial for your back with steam, hot towels, and a great massage mixed in. Afterwards I headed to "The Grotto" where I proceeded to relax upon heated sand at the beach, lean back in the jetted hot pool, melt away any remaining tension in the steam room, and finally cool down in the Atlantis Cool Dip...cool pool. Lockers, thick robes, big towels, and sandals were provided. Everywhere you look in this building, the cleanliness, design, and craftsmanship is just amazing. It's not just another spa, there's something extra special about Terra Del Sol. It's luxury and I will definitely return.

Cons: None, I had a great experience.

I went to this place with a recommendation from a friend. It is BEAUTIFUL! I didn't realize it the first time, but you can sit in their hot tub before or after your appointment. Awesome. It The girl who did my facial was so sweet! She did an awesome job and my skin looked and felt like a babies butt after she was done with it! She also did my eyebrows, which needed a lot of work... I got quite a few compliments on them afterward!

It's kind of a spendy place, buts the services provided are well worth it! I was very surprised to see the bad reviews. I've been back twice now and have always had a great experience. Can't say enough good things!

Cons: Kinda Spendy

My girlfriends and I have been going there for months and can't say enough about it! I've been to many spas in my life, but never have I experienced such a relaxing atmosphere in a place as luxurious as TDS.
The services are wonderful and at a fair price, especially if you pair it with the grotto(if you don't know what it is, you gotta go see it!).
Aside from the services and the building, my favorite part about this spa would be the ladies there. You would think at a place as nice as this, the staff would be cold and stuck up(exactly what I've gotten from places like Dosha and other "high end" spas in the Pearl).
Bottom line, this place is great for new mothers like me who don't much time to devote to taking care of themselves. It's nice to know that I have an exotic getaway only blocks from my house where I can FINALLY be treated like a queen! Thanks Christi!

We had a client Sunday, February 15, 2009 who booked a Mediterranean Massage, (50 min/$50).
It was a busy Valentine's weekend and her appointment began five minutes late. Her therapist gave her a 50 minute treatment. The client first complained her treatment was supposed to be 60 minutes to her therapist and later to the front desk that her treatment was 40 minutes. To the owner she complained her treatment was only 35 minutes long and now she wrote on another site it was only 28 minutes long.

Terra Del Sol offers ONLY 50 or 80 minutes to allow room set up time and time for the client to change. I looked at the time the treatment began; I spoke with the therapist before and after the treatment and it was in fact 50 minutes long, as long as any client receives for the Special Mediterranean Massage.

I was disheartened to hear she was dissatisfied. Several calls were made to the client?s home with no response. Finally on Tuesday the client called and I explained to her that I investigated the matter and she in fact received the service she was supposed to receive a 50 minute Mediterranean Massage.

I?m sorry she feels this way. Terra Del Sol Spa did not receive any payment for this treatment as it was a promotional service; however the client was treated her as we would a full paying client. Obviously we cannot make her happy.

Terra Del Sol Spa receives clients from all over the world and nation wide who love us.

Kauia is always in a great mood and always does exactly what needs to be done to my hair. I have such faith in her that I tell her she can do whatever she likes and when I go out after it's done I get tons of compliments! I would never go to anyone else. Another positive is that the new spa she works at is BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING!!! This is a must see place!!!
