i'm a tanning newbie and i love my experience here – i write this as someone new to tanning. i chose palm beach tan primarily for location. it being right next door to the awesome HEB was a big plus. i came in with a month to get a decent tan before a big vacation to Europe. i had truckers tan, farmers tan, about 4 different bathing suit tan lines, sock tan lines, skirt tan lines....i was a mess. walked in and was greeted by Misty. i got a tour of the facilities and a run down on each of the beds. based on her reviews and recommendations, i chose the middle 'gold' membership for 1 month. it was a bit more expensive than i planned on - after their $20 yearly fee; the price of the membership and the cheap bottle of lotion i dropped $80. i understand the month to month plans are cheaper, but just one month was pretty pricey. but anyhoo, i got over it. there was no sales pressure, she just gave me her recommendations and let me make my choices. that was very nice. i got 2 free upgrades and a free mystic tan when i signed up, in addition to a kit with a lotion sampled, goggles and something else that i don't remember.
i've been tanning every day since i'm on a deadline, and every time i go the staff is very nice and answer all my questions. the facilities are always very clean, and the access to free goggles is good when i forget mine. they've been great about recommending how long i should tan for without getting burned. after 3 weeks, my tan is coming in nicely - it took a while because my torso hasn't seen the light of day in about a decade so we had to play catch up.
i probably won't be back once this month is up, but that's only because i can't see how long term tanning is healthy - but to get a tan for a special occasion, give yourself a month and try palm beach :)
to sum up:
cleanliness is great. bed maintenance is great. staff members are nice, knowledgable and very quick. little pricey, but in this case i got what i paid for so i'm ok with it.
