My visit to the spa about 2 months ago was amazing! My massage therapist Marisol was absolutly wonderful and made me feel comfortable. She made conversation with me, something which no other massage therapist has ever done before. I was so pleased with my Deep Tissue massage. Marisol did such an amazing job and im sure to come back with her.

I have been a client of Erin Ennis for over 5 years now, and she delivers the best waxing and facial services that I have ever received from anyone. She is meticulous and conscientious, and extremely professional and sweet.

I've been to many spas because I love facials and massages. I just love pampering myself! My boyfriend gave me a gift certificate for a Tropical Waters massage and facial and OMG it was amazing!!! The staff is extremely kind and soft-spoken. The ambiance was calming and very soothing. I went on a Friday after a long week of work and was so relaxed right when I walked in. The service was PERFECT and I will definitely use their services from now on. Trust me, I've been to many spas around the city and this is by far the best I've been to!

I had just taken out $100.00 (5 $20.00) from the ATM at, Wells Fargo Went up the stairs to Tropical waters to get my Gift Facial from my daughter. Put all my belongings including my purse in the locker, locked it ! Had my facial and paid with my gift card. Next morning went to pay for somethings at the market and the 5, $20.00 bills were missing. They had left a $10.00 and a few ones.
I was the only guest at the spa. The locks on the lockers could easily be opened. I would not recommend this spa !!!!

Business Response:

You are mistaken This lady seemed pleasant enough when she arrived, but older, and very disoriented and is mistaken about how she lost her money. We have had virtually NO incidence of theft in 7+ years of operation. Anyway, what thief would break into a locker, and only take SOME of the money in the wallet? The fact that you still had money in your wallet is a clear indication that YOU misplaced your money elsewhere. Very unfair to blame us!

You will love this spa. The amenities are great and you will love the service. I have such a great massage and a great pedicure. You will love the people at the counter.

This spa might be good for facials and massages, but I wouldn't ever recommend it for waxing. I went there for my standard (full legs, bikini and underarms) and the woman giving the waxing was making the patches of wax too big so she couldn't pull it all off in one stroke and was also not holding the skin down when pulling up it was extremely painful because it was trying to take the skin on my leg with it. Then she giggled and said "Oh, it's less painful if I hold it down." But she still kept trying to do it this sloppy way. She got wax everywhere and wasn't getting it pulled up. At the end, she says she's really a massage therapist. Basically, they took someone and gave her wax and fabric and said go without any proper training. Now I have to travel all the way from Hermosa to Westwood or Silverlake as I'm scared to try a new place and spend money to find that it's awful like the Tropical Waters waxers.

Found all employees to be pleasant and thoroughly professional. My Swedish massage from Marisol was exceptional and my wife was extremely pleased with her manipedi from Yuki and her facial waxing from Susie. We will definitely reurn every chance we get. As this was our first spa visit, we were a bit apprehensive beforehand but fears were unfounded.

I have lived in SoCal for 3 years and I still was flying home all the time to get my hair done. As I get older, I just don't have the time to so I made a life altering decision to find a new hair stylist. I have seen some of the really "trendy" haircuts that come from high end, Hollywood places and I was less than impressed. After asking around and doing a little bit of research, I decided to give Tropical a shot. Teresa was my stylist and she was so awesome, she did a great job, and did exactly what I asked her to do and she was very accommodating. She was great and I loved how easy she was to talk to as was everyone else!

I?ve never written a review on anything before but felt it necessary to express my appreciation towards such an accommodating 2 hours of getting my hair cut and colored in Hermosa Beach at the Tropical Waters spa & salon. I live in Santa Monica but have a lot of friends that live in the south bay. They are always talking about how awesome this salon is which made me curious to see how a simple men?s haircut could be that much better than my regular shop in Santa Monica.

I was lucky enough to get a same day appointment which happened to be with Nora who is a master stylist and the owner of the salon. As soon as I walked in to the salon I was greeted by what seemed to be every stylist in the room. I could sense the not so typical salon vibe of stylists who all seemed to get along which made for a comfortable atmosphere and a great first impression. Nora had greeted me as if I was a VIP client and immediately offered me a glass of champagne. How cool is that? Seriously! Almost like she knew I had just finished from a strenuous day at the office and needed to take the edge off. After a pre-washing of the hair and empty glass of wine it was time to discuss my hair cut. Unlike the routine and boring specifications I usually demand with every hair cut, I asked Nora?s opinion of what would look good. She suggested a completely different hair style than the usual boring trim that I get time after time. Thinning, texturing, and mild highlights. I felt like grabbing a dictionary really quick so I could pretend to know what she was suggesting.

Anyway, to make a long story short, my hair cut looks very stylish and I?ve been receiving many wonderful compliments. I figure writing this review is the least I could do for such an unexpected pleasurable experience at a beauty salon. You should all check this salon out. Great location and it actually wasn?t that expensive compared to the Santa Monica salons. See you soon Nora!

I was the maid of honor for my best friends wedding and I looked everywhere for a place where she would get everything a bride would want and more for her wedding day and I found that in Tropical waters hair salon. Nora and her crew made sure that everyone in the wedding party felt like royalty and provided a very relaxing environment for a very hectic day ahead of us. The package included a limo that picked us up from our hotel in huntington and brought us over to the salon in hermosa where we were greeted with friendly faces, mimosas and breakfast. the ladies at the salon not only did a wonderful job with our hair and make up along with pedicures and manicures they really made everyone feel comfortable. They constantly asked how we were feelign and made sure that we were 100% happy with what they were providing for us. The bride looked beautiful and the wedding party looked glamorous. When we were all finished they even gave us a goodie bag to take with us which included pureology hair products and samples of the make up they used on us for retouching our make up later that night. The limo took us back to our hotel and i have to admit that out of the four weddings that took place at that hotel that day, we all stood out. Hands down this place is a goldmine and youd be a fool to pass up such a luxury. You can never find another place so relaxing and beautiful for the price we got it for. Im for sure coming here for my wedding

I drove past this salon many times and never went in. Finally a friend told me about what a great experience she had there and I decided to try it out. Therea was my stylist and she did an amazing job. I brought a photo of what I wanted my hair to look like and she made it happen. She understands how to highlight without making it look sloppy and she gave me a great haircut. I was very impressed and will definately go back.

After having a bad styling experience at Supercuts, I called the salon the next day to see if I could get any help with my botched color and cut. When I called, I was fit in to the salon 2 hours later, and ended up with such a smashing look- I was so happy. My coloring was fixed, my cut was fabulous, and the master stylist was understanding and didnt make me feel uncomfortable about the situation at all. I was so happy to have such an understanding, sweet, talented stylist. My experience has made me a loyal customer!

I am new to the area and really wanted to find the right stylist and salon the first time I went for a service. Instead of just going into next salon I saw, I decided to do some research and on City-Search and found the recommendations for this salon to be very high. I booked my appointment for Nora through Andreas (who was very friendly and accomodating). Nora was exactly the type of stylist I like-very talented and confident. She would ask for my opinion but if when I was unsure she knew what to do to make me look great. She gave very good advice about how to bring my hair back to life and she told me things about the products that I had been using that I never heard. I took her advice and the results have been great. I am pleased with my color and the cut is exactly like the picture I brought in ---I can't say enough they are fabulous--oh and by the way if your looking for a manicure and pedicure from a REAL salon Oki is awesome. Oki spent time getting my nails to look so much better than any other salon that I have been to.

My experience at Tropical was wonderful. I called on a Saturday afternoon to get a hair cut/color and they didn't have anyone at the time, but they called and found a stylist available willing to come in and work with me. Sydney was the Stylist and she is awesome. She is very professional and attentive to one's needs and looks.
I recommend it to anyone; I'm taking my daughter to her too!

I visited the salon at Tropical Waters for the second time this week. My hairstylist was Nora, and she was absolutely amazing. My hair was suffering from a summer of rough treatment, and she was frank but honest about the state I had it in. It was great to have a hairstylist willing to offer a knowledgeable, professional opinion. Part of being a professional is being an expert in your craft, and I would readily vouch for Nora's expertise after just one haircut. She was friendly and sweet. I felt comfortable and at ease the entire time I was in her hands. It was a welcome change from other salons, where you may be in for a surprise when the hairstylist puts the scissors down. I would highly recommend Tropical Waters. I would also suggest you ask for Nora if you want your hair in the hands of a competent professional.

There are not enough positive words to say when it comes to Sidney's style of hair cutting - she makes me feel like whole new woman! Once you've had a hair style done by her, take my word - you won't want or need to go anywhere else. Never before have I ever had men, woman ask me about my cut and style. I never hesitate to share my great experience with Sidney to anyone that asks. She will give you a style that will make you appreciate being a woman at any age. Not only is she the best at what she creates, she will also provide a wonderful atmosphere for you to relax and be yourself. Tropical Waters is a classy place - experience it, you won't be sorry. Sidney, I love you, God Bless You! Anna

I am happy to recommend this Salon, and more specifically Sidney Marquez, who has done wonders to my hair for the last 5 years. As a Salsa Instructor, and part time actress and model, I have very high standards of how my hair is treated, and what kind of experience I have regarding customer service and the vibe of the place. I commute sometimes up to an hour and a half out of my way, in traffic, to go to Tropical Waters and have Sidney work on my hair, using only the finest products for enduring color and maintenance of healthy hair. The salon itself always has a friendly and relaxing atmosphere every time I have an appointment, even with the different people I've seen working different shifts. I'm always greeted quickly upon arrival, offered a refreshing beverage, and enjoy the serenity of the atmosphere with the light wood floors, buttercream color paint, soft lighting, comfortable chairs, and minimal noise level. See for yourself and don't forget to have Sidney take care of you, she is the best! I guarantee you will walk out a different, happier person than when you walked in. And if you'd like to sample what wonders Sidney has done to my hair by checking the different demands I've had with my hair (and it is pretty high maintenance from redhead to blonde to both) you can visit www.lanaosa. I always leave the Salon and Sydney looking and feeling like a celebrity!

Good experience here but make sure you let them know exactly what you want/ want them to change, they will deliver, even if you ask for it a day later (that's what I did).

Its very nice and comfortable and all, but I just came for a great haircut so thats what Im focusing this review on.
I told them to leave the bangs alone, but no hairstylist I know can resist a few snips, but it was the very tinyest bit off.
I wasnt specific about how long I wanted it on the back and sides, so it was way too long. Now its mostly my fault I could have told them to fix it, but I waited tell the next day to go back and have them fix it and I was much happier after that.

Pros: Nora is great.

Cons: 2*more than a cheap haircut at supercuts + Have to ask for a mirror to see back of your head after its cut.

Good experience here but make sure you let them know exactly what you want/ want them to change, they will deliver, even if you ask for it a day later (that's what I did).

Its very nice and comfortable and all, but I just came for a great haircut so thats what Im focusing this review on.

I heard about Tropical Waters through a friend, and decided to try it out. Nora was incredible. She was very attentive and gave me a glass of wine to relax. I'm definitely going to keep going back and referring people. Visiting Tropical Waters was a great experience.

Upon entering Tropical Waters, I felt like I was away from the world and in a tranquil and
luxurious atmosphere. The decor is modern but elegant. I have been a customer of
Nora (Sevaslian) for ten years and this is by far the best place she has been in. As far as
Nora, my hair stylist, I call her "The Miracle Worker." I have extremely difficult hair to work with, plus extensions which most stylists are very afraid of. Nora is the only stylist that has been able to make
my hair truly stylish and beautiful. She is not only extremely talented and creative, but will be candid and
tell you what is best for your hair. She has truly tranformed my hair and I would not dream of going to any other stylist.

Thank- you Tropical Waters! At last we have a cutting edge salon in the South Bay area. The moment I walked in there was a professional staff , yet with a completely relaxing atmosphere. Not overdone.Everything is beautiful here. I heard about "Nora" from several international flight attendants that fly in just for her. I thought my hair color worked for me. It was great to have a talented hair stylist , tell me honestly but with integrity that my hair was NOT right. Nora fixed it. I am so happy not only with her professionality, but with my whole experience at Tropical Waters. She is an artist, and my hair was her canvas. WOW!

Tropical waters is under new ownership, and has been completely renovated. Flat out it is the most beautiful, luxurious spa and salon in the south bay. The salon is now being run by Nora and she heads up a staff of amazing stylists. The esthetitians and massage therapists are outstanding. I cant say enough about this place, it is PARADISE!

Three words for Hush Salon - Disappointing & over priced! The girls were rude and unfriendly and my haircut and color were at best marginal!

Went to Tropical Waters Spa in Hermosa Beach and had the most pleasant experience! From my first initial phone call to the most amazing precision haircut and color by Linda! Linda took all the time needed to discuss my likes and dislikes, she did a perfect job on my hair color and the correction from Hush Salons enormous errors!! Looking for a great cut, color, experience at a affordable price, look no further, call and set up your appointment with Linda at Tropical Spa today! You won't be disappointed. Best haircut I have ever had in my life! Thanks Linda - you have a new client for life!

I have been going to Tropical Waters for a few years now and have always been very happy with all of my services. Now that they are under new management thinga are only getting better! I love the facials and massages and even the waxing doesn't seem as painful when you have someone experienced taking care of you!

As an admited spa junkie I am always looking for pampering. I was hesitant to try a place that had rubbed me the wrong way some months back. However, after hearing they were under new managment, I thought worst case scenerio I don't dare go back again. I was amazed, first of all many renovations had been done to the facilities, it was a well needed face-lift. The receptionist was not only extremly friendly but she also had a great sense of humor!!! The facilities were equipped with a steam room which I thoroughly enjoyed prior to my facial. Ahh the facial, can I say loves it!!!! Not only were the extractions relativly painless, but the warm bed and hand/foot/shoulder/neck massage during my mask weren't bad either. I left glowing refreshed and suprised. What an improvement!!! I know I will be back!!!!!

I am intrigues to use the spa. The waiting room by itself was tranquile and inviting. With little to go on, the stylist gave my hair some great body and a cut that was stylish and fit perfectly with my face. The color was right on as well. The customer service in general could use some work and it was a bit on the pricey side...but I look hot. So job overall was well done.

Went to Tropical Waters looking for a way to unwind from the million stresses that come along with being a bride. I LOVED it! Racquel was the sweetest and did an amazing job on my facial. The 'Zen' room is so relaxing, and the staff is awesome. I just booked another 'day of pampering' there.

I have been to Tropical Waters before and the service was always good (not outstanding). They must have changed management recently because they now have poor customer service and inexperienced staff. For the price you pay at this place, where the quality is now actually less than average, I do not recommend going here. You could definitely find somewhere more upscale for the same price with better service.

Just spent 4 luxurious hours here over the weekend and what a great way to spend them! Tried the Indonesian body mask with a shiatsu massage and eminence facial. Everyone was very polite, the place was beyond beautiful, and I was treated like a queen. I will definately return soon!

I have gone here a few times and it has steadily gone downhill. The front desk personnel act like they are doing you a favor and the women's locker room, shower etc. has not been maintained. The massages are average to marginal and again, have an attitude. You can get disount coupons but it's not worth it!

Love this place. You can get your hair, nails, waxing, massage, facials all in one place. AND - they have a great selection of skin/hair products, many you won't find else where locally. So glad we finally got a nice spa in HB! Check it out.
