Personally I work at a palm beach tan and I just wanted to shed some light on a few misconceptions.
1. There are absolutely NO CONTRACTS. Yes you must notify us if you are wanting to cancel by the 25th because we must let the banks know how much to draft and they need prior notice so if you have a problem with this, take it up with the bank.
2. When upgrading your membership the computer only charges a 20$ upgrade fee when in reality you could be jumping up to a 50$ extra per month package so 20$ is a happy medium we settled. And when downgrading your account you can use the higher beds until the end of the month, it just doesn't show that you are on those beds anymore in the computer, so if you would remind the staff we would happily look over your account a realize this correct and award you with a higher bed.
3. I apologize to those of you who feel like our sales pitches are unnecessary and unwanted, however we are just trying to get the most color for you from your tanning session (isn't that what you want? The most color for your money). On top of which our lotions are compatively priced with other top salons, and you get what you pay for color wise. Also keep in mind that lotion is 40% of a tan and that we have all been smart tan certified to provide you with information with how to get as dark as possible. And remember that our job is to sell!!!!
4. The reason our dark costs 6.50$ extra for non members is that the solution contains more dha for it to develop darker, thus costing it more to make. However for members it is only $1.50 extra, a premier membership perk..
5. We have charts on each bed in the computer that shows when bulbs need to be changed and our corporate offices require bulbs to be changed even before they are really needed to be, so bulbs are changed periodically.
6. I read that someone wrote that when they told employees that a bulb was out it fell in deaf ears...keep in mind that if a bulb blows we then have to order new bulbs, wait for them to be shipped, and then have someone qualified to replace it. And then if the bulb still doesn't work a new starter must be order for the bulb which takes another week or two.
Sorry I just wanted to clear a few misconceptions. Some people seem like they are just looking for something to complain about.....

I love the girls, that work there and I love the tan I get! after reading all the other reviews it just goes to show everyone feels different! I recommend trying it for your self before you make a judgment! I love the Orchards location because It is new and very clean. But I love that I can use any location. I can freeze my account whenever and I can cancel it whenever. I don't feel like they are too pushy but That may just be me! I think they are trying to just help me get a good tan in the safest and fastest way possible! I love it and have never had an issue for the 1 1/2 that I have tanned there!

I've noticed after reading through everyones reviews that a lot of the complaints stem from Pushy sales people. And of course pushy people can be irritating. BUT what YOU need to realize is that selling is their job. Maybe you believe that they're trying to squeeze you dry of $ but really they are only trying to survive in this economy as well. AND just so you're aware, you are always capable of asking them politley to stop pitching to you. They are able to put comments on your account so everyone can know to let you be. Other than that, I believe their facility and customer service is superb. They are truly trying to help your tanning experience become better. What is there to dislike when you arent signed into any contracts? or your able to FREEZE your account if your planning on going on vacation for a couple months? When you freeze you dont have to worry about paying your full bill every month, just 7.50, which saves in your account and you can use it as cash when you get back. I know its unfortunate that if you downgrade your account, it downgrades you right away even if you paid for the whole month. But why not downgrade at the end of the month instead? That way you can still use the same beds? Think this through! Palm Beach Tan is the best Tanning Salon I have ever been too, considering many. And honestly, it is just TANNING. So be kind.

I LOVE Palm Beach Tan. I have been tanning there since it was Pacific Beach Tan, and I must say...they have made ALOT of improvements in their packages and monthly EFT. Not only do I not have to sigh a contract, I am not locked into my monthly rate, and I can buy individual tans if I want to end my eft.

I find myself in shock after reading these other reviews. I have never had any of these terrible experiences, nor have my friends, or family. The only terrible experience I had was when I went price checking @ Tanning Bay before it switched to a Pacific Beach Tan. The owner was in there with his family, and didn't want me to leave without spending $400 on a package. I quickly left to go sign up at Pacific Beach Tan in Hazel Dell. I have been back to the "Tanning Bay" salon since it has been switched to a Palm Beach Tan, and the service is excellent. The girls always treat me very well, and are never too pushy, they just inform you of all the specials they have each month or season. Plus, I had to wait a couple more minutes than usual a few weeks back because they were changing all of their bulbs. Can't complain about that!

With the recent closure of Tan Down Under due to lack of knowledge of how to run a salon..lol...I tried to figure this corporate salon out..wow so over priced and pushy...there are many other little family owned salons that treat you with respect and dont push you into buying their over priced packages. It was great to find a place like Electric Beach where the owners worked a great deal with me. They understood I got screwed from Tan Down Under and made everything right...I will spend my time tanning with the locally owned salon..hope you all catch on.. they have no contracts to sign. :) :)

I like to go to Palm Beach Tan because of the convenience of their locations but I find myself wondering if that is most important to me. I understand that they need to do monthly memberships with automatic deducts from accounts but I feel like they are taking advantage of customers. For instance, if you want to upgrade your account - they will do it for you and charge you right away for the extra amount and you can begin tanning in the upgraded beds right away. But if you want to downgrade for the next month, the downgrade will take effect immediately EVEN THOUGH you've already paid for the whole month. They do not let you finish out the rest of the month in your pre-paid package. This is terrible and stealing. Also, they give you the option to put your account on hold (the Stay & Save) which is awesome. BUT the requirements are that you have to notify the staff by the 25th of the month in order to use it and once you let them know, your account is put on hold and ONCE AGAIN you cannot tan for the rest of the month that you have paid for. This is very irritating and I know I am not the only one who feels this way.

This part is specific to the newer location on Fourth Plain Blvd in "The Palms" complex: If you buy the unlimited monthly spray tans - you can use the light or medium (they just changed the names of them. I think it was a level 2 or 3 but now it's something like a light, glow or dark...not sure) but if you want to use the next level (a dark level) you have to pay more for that. What is the deal? Why did I just pay a monthly fee of $65 just to find out that you want me to pay another $6.50 to get a level 3 color? Also, if you are out of the medium spray color, which you were - don't tell me that in order for me to use the dark I need to pay you more. It's not my problem that you're not stocked up on products. You should be apologizing to your customers and stop unfairly taking our money. If the way you do business doesn??t change I'm almost certain that you'll end up with a class action lawsuit.

Pros: Locations

Cons: Deceptive practices

Go here if you like...
?Waiting for the desk to finish their lotion sales pitch with another customer before you can check in.
?Confusing packages
?High prices
?Pushy salespeople (obviously commission based)
?Poor customer service
?Expiration dates!
?Contract that allows them to share your fingerprint ID

Just tried out Palm Beach Tan for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised. Great deals on unlimited tanning and I can cancel at anytime? Verizon made me pay $300 to get out of my "contract" STUPID! The staff was great and told me how to get the best tan and actually made be a schedule. Great! Try it!

I bought an expensive tanning package which my boyfriend and I both use it and have noticed that the service has gone down hill. We informed them many times of garbage cans overflowing & burned out bulbs in many of their beds but it falls on deaf ears and I doubt the bulbs have been changed as to a schedule. I hear the franchise is opening up a new Solon, so is this why the were getting the S*^$#y service as all the moneys going to the new salon? It sure seems like it. After my package is done I'm looking for a new place to tan.

"It seems obvious that salons around the area are writing negative reviews on Tanning Bay/ PBT or any salon for that matter. Is it just me or is it funny that at the end of the reviews they all say they tan at Desert Tan? Hum, I wonder why? They either work there or own it! Please decide for yourself where you tan, not because of negative comments left by other tanning salons!"

...obviously done by someone who works there...if you want to know why they say to go to desert sun....maybe its because they are actually better and nicer and cleaner and more friendly and dont continuelly try to rip you off by selling packages that make it seem like youre getting a good deal when your not. which is easy to do because most of us dont know as much about tanning. Honestly, tho i do have have to say i dont like desert sun much more than tanning bay.

For people considering this salon please take it from me. DONT GO THERE. They now have "corporate" which does payment plans but they screw you over and take out "extra" payments on days you didnt sign for and suddenly your missing tans. Their customer service is horrible. I have heard employees saying horrible things about other customers RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. I dont know about you but thats not okay with me.

If you want a tan. honestly its not that hard to do. just do it somewhere else because you will get screwed over by tanning bay. which by the way is now pacific beach tan. dont go to ANY of the salons.

I just got a package at Pacific Beach Tan and gotta say they are great!! After reading the other reviews I would agree with the poster who said that other salons are posting negatives to maybe drive potential customers away?? They don't push lotions but DO inform you of specials they have. Hey? if you can save a few bucks why not hear about a few specials.

The beds are kept clean.
I have no idea as to their bulb changing schedule as its not posted.
{Went to a few salons who did this as it kept people from continually asking about New Bulbs in what beds}
Nice friendly staff and I'm glad I picked this Solon to tan at.

PROS: Clean well taken care of beds and you can just walk in.
CONS: None that I know of.

I have tanned at several salons in the East Vancouver area. When I went to Tanning Bay, it was the same as Desert Sun....PUSHY SALESPEOPLE that make you feel guilty for keeping food on the table instead of keeping your booty bronze! Tanning Bay has conventional beds that you would expect to see in your apartment clubhouse - crappy! Desert Sun has awesome beds and they change the bulbs regularly...but I really don't like that used car lot feeling when I want to just lay in a nice hot tanning bed and relax for a few minutes. I wish I could combine the beds at Desert Sun and the service at Jungle Tans. They've never made me feel like I'm not worthy of tanning there. If I ask about specials or lotions, they are happy to tell me all about it, but they are not pushy!

I've gone to Tanning Bay now named Palm Beach Tan for 13+ years from when they were located across the street at Park Crest and when Linda Bay the original owner had owned it.

They had kept their beds clean for the most part and change their bulbs & have updated their VIP beds from Tan America beds to Soltron Beds as of February 2010. They also have added a Spa Angel red light therapy stand up to the Mill Plain Store and new beds to many Vancouver & Portland salons as of February 2011.

Palm Beach Tan is now on its 3rd owner as Jason Kusch who bought the salon from the Bays sold his interest and has moved on. Thanks for so many years of great service Jason!

Now.. much has changed since Jason left and the prices have skyrocketed, the beds at times are not clean as I went into the Spa Angel red light therapy and there were boob prints on the door when I opened it up!. The workers seem to change ever 3-6 months.. to be expected when its a minimum wage job with no health benefits.

But still as for any package....
If you have buyer??s remorse for a package you bought and cant afford, don't blame the salon for your actions. Don??t want to be told of any special a salon is running? Open your mouth and tell them you don??t want to hear them, as sales reps are not mind readers and its just NOT Palm Beach Tan who tries to get you to buy from them, as ALL salons push packages.

Also, ALWAYS CHECK your receipts & bank account after buying lotions or single tans at any tanning place, as one girl who has since been fired from Palm Beach Tan in 2009 was double billing people on their lotions and other things. {This goes for any salon}

This place used to be nice, customer focused and clean. Maybe they change owners or something... I don't know what happened. Right now it sucks, the employees are constantly trying to sell you stuff you don't need, every time you go tanning, it's so annoying...they are just after your money.
They trick you into buying new packages you don??t want nor need, by offering you free tans that later they deny offering it to you. They treat you like garbage. I am very, very disappointed and feel totally cheated. Can somebody out there help me?

THE BEDS ARE NOT WELL MAINTAINED AT ALL , I WENT THERE FOR A YEAR AND NOT 1 TIME DID THEY CHANGE THEIR BULBS, HIGH PRESSURE LAMPS OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN A CONVENTIONAL BED SHOULD BE CHANGED EVERY 600 HRS ,FOR A STEADY SALON THAT WOULD BE ABOUT EVERY 7 MONTHS, AND BY THAT TIME THEY ARE WORTHLESS ! YOU WOULD THINK THAT WHEN THEY ARE CHARGING $50 A TAN W/ CONTRACTS THE LEAST THEY COULD DO IS MAINTAIN THE EQUIPMENT AND TRAIN THEIR STAFF . THE SALES PEOPLE THERE ARE ALSO VERY HIGH PRESSURE DAY AFTER DAY . I ALSO TAN AT DESERT SUN NOW, NEW SALON VERY GREAT PRICES ,AND SERVICE WITH TOP OF THE LINE BEDS!!OPEN 6 MONTH AND JUST GOT NEW ALL BULBS

THE BEDS ARE NOT WELL MAINTAINED AT ALL , I WENT THERE FOR A YEAR AND NOT 1 TIME DID THEY CHANGE THEIR BULBS, HIGH PRESSURE LAMPS OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN A CONVENTIONAL BED SHOULD BE CHANGED EVERY 600 HRS ,FOR A STEADY SALON THAT WOULD BE ABOUT EVERY 7 MONTHS, AND BY THAT TIME THEY ARE WORTHLESS ! YOU WOULD THINK THAT WHEN THEY ARE CHARGING $50 A TAN W/ CONTRACTS THE LEAST THEY COULD DO IS MAINTAIN THE EQUIPMENT AND TRAIN THEIR STAFF . THE SALES PEOPLE THERE ARE ALSO VERY HIGH PRESSURE DAY AFTER DAY . I ALSO TAN AT DESERT SUN NOW, NEW SALON VERY GREAT PRICES ,AND SERVICE WITH TOP OF THE LINE BEDS!!OPEN 6 MONTH AND JUST GOT NEW ALL BULBS

Tanning Bay was like visting a used car lot. They try to sell you something you dont want. EVERY TIME i went there they would pull out there sharpie and start with the pitch well let me tell you what i can do for you. I know they are in the sales business but every time you have to ask me!! I do love the 30dollar tan for 30days and at least everyone was pleasant most of the time.

When I went to buy a package the people there were so rude and pushy. I mean really? Its just a tanning package. They acted like car sales men. Not to mention that Neal was trying to get me to buy other tanning beds that i didn't want, just so he could make money off me. They make you feel like your below them, and that your not good enough to tan there. I will never go back there ever. I now tan at Desert Sun Tanning Salon.

Great beds, friendly staff, clean environment and in the two years I have been going there I have only had to wait for a bed once. They are only walk ins they don't take apts, but have enough beds that you will almost never wait. The prices are competitive to others in the area. Like all places you will need to convince them to give you a better "deal", they don't just offer, just like buying a car. The good thing is though that unlike what many other tanning places are doing now, you don't need to sign up to be a member and pay a fee and then buy a package... that is one reason I picked tanning bay over others in the area.

PROS: clean, friendly, quick, bulbs are regularly changed.
CONS: would be nice if it was open earlier in the morning... otherwise good hrs.

This is an excellent place to tan. They are on the pricey side, but their beds work! They have a wide variety of products and tans, plus a lot of staff. They have a wide variety of tanning beds and even have a mystic tan. Catch their specials or purchase one of their "unlimited" tanning packages for the best value. This is by far my favorite tanning place.
