Always relaxing and highly recommended – I have gone to Beauty Clinica many times over the past three years and have always had a great experience. They strive to create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. I typically go for a facial, which is always great, but have also gone for massage, eyebrow waxing and manicures. The staff are attentive and listen to your concerns and will adjust the treatments based on the information you give them. I always look forward to my treatments and always leave relaxed and happy with the results. If you want to go on a weekend, be sure to book your appointment early in the week to ensure you can get in!
i love this spa! – this spa is definitely one of the only spas that i thought gave good services + good prices. i usually go to Harmonie Day Spa in Saratoga because its environment is nicer but Harmonie's pricey services do add up, so I decided to go for another choice + mix it up. I choose Beauty Clinica Day Spa and went there for a Dead Sea Salt Masque Package (with dead sea salt body glow, seaweed wrap, facial, foot + head massage) + 90 min. Massage. I had Olga as my server + thought she was the best. Because of her I decided to book my monthly Spa Day @ Beauty Clinica + will go back there for my full spa day routine once a month. I will only go back to Harmonie now for special occasions.
I would've given this spa a 5 but I think that the building is older and the environment could be a little bit nicer. The service was definitely great though.
Another reason why I gave this spa a 4 is because I hate their receptionist Natalie - from my experience she worked afternoons. She is impatient and rude. I had to call back + change my appointments a few times due to work schedule changes and wanting to ADD services to my spa day. She told me that I kept on changing and its causing her a lot of problems. One day I asked her for my schedule + she even told me that she was too busy so she couldn't do it... seriously giving me my 7 hour spa day schedule takes only about 2 seconds. I go there like EVERY MONTH for 8 hours! PLUS i am a customer! even if I changed it like 1000 times, keep it to yourself and not tell the customers that they are causing problems!
If it wasn't for Olga who was such a nice lady + motherly who really takes care of you and make sure you are comfortable + the reasonable prices I would have never went back to Beauty Clinica because of Natalie
Overall a BIG disappointment – I did not get a good facial aesthetician. A colleague of hers told me she has been there 13 years! In this case, experience doesn't seem to help. This is a list of why I will never get a facial there again:
1. Very rushed and somewhat rough massage, it would have been more relaxing if it were left out completely.
2. She got up and left the room a minimum of 6 times, leaving the door open so you could hear people scurrying back and forth. Furthermore, when in the room she was constantly darting back and forth, knocking into things etc. Generally, she was a restless person, couldn't sit still and it made for a very UN-relaxing time.
3. There was no skin examination, and certainly no skincare reccomendations. She couldn't even bother herself to customize the products by skin type. I have combination/oily skin, and any competent aesthetician could see that, she however slathered oil all over my face and proceeded to get it throughout my hair(!). At the end she left it on thinking I want to walk around with an oil slick on my face? Other places I have been to finished with a light moisturizer and/or suncreen if during the day.
4. The only real effort that was put into the session was the extractions, which were also rough and in some places unnecessary.
5. Overall, definitely not a serene environment, the package I got was called Express Relaxation. All I can say is it was definitely "Express" but there was very little relaxation to speak of.
I have been to other spas in the recent past, and have been highly satisfied with every aspect of the experience, just so you know I am not a hyper-critical person. There are simply minimum standards to be expected when you are shelling out alot of cash in the hopes of being pampered.
I am so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at our spa. After reading your review I investigated to figure out what had happened. Your Esthetician had injured her front teeth, and was in significant amount of pain while she was working on you. I apologize that we should have mentioned that to you at time of your service. For this reason she wasn't talking much during the session. Once again I apologize for the unpleasant experience. Please call our spa to speak to the spa director at 650-326-3442, and she will do her best to make this up to you.
Sincerely, Beauty Clinica Day Spa
a wonderful spa!! – this spa is palo alto's best kept secret! i went for a massage and it was awesome. the staff was very friendly (and not the least bit arrogant or snooty like some other palo alto spas i have been to) and i felt very welcome and comfortable. they offer a great variety of treatments and have a large facility. every time i have called i have been able to book an appointment on the day and time i wanted. i went back for a facial and had another great experience -- my skin looks awesome! i plan on going back soon. highly recommended!!
Editorial Review – Peninsula day spas offers facials, waxing, nail care, body treatments, massages and more luxurious treatments.
What a great day! – My family bought me a day at the Beauty Clinica Spa and it was a wonderful experience. The staff went out of their way to make my day especially enjoyable. I had the works done - including a manicure, pedicure, body wrap, massage and facial. The lunch was scrumpious too. Afterwards, I felt totally rejuvenated. My family know what to get me for a gift in the future.
Awesome Experience – I found this Spa totally by luck, but it is a jewel. The staff has great skill and a good understanding of skin type and how to help. They are not uppity or pretentious like other Spas I have been to. I went back for a massage and was impressed both with the environment and the techniques that were used. I am definitely going back.
Elegant Facials and Comfortable Prices – This was my first facial experience, and the staff was friendly and helpful. My skin was in pretty bad condition when I first came in--dry and oily as well as clogged pores. I was given a generous amount of samples and advised on a routine. When I came in 3 weeks later my skin was so much better. My second visit was one week before my wedding and my second facial did the trick. My skin in better than it ever has been. Make up is optional. Beauty clinica is great not only for their treatments, but also for the education they give you to take home.
Excellent Experience – I am a mommy of two young children, and hence stress relief is very important. I have been to many spas, but the staff here has been best so far. The great experience and good prices keep me coming back.
