I live locally and have only been to the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa a few times to eat and then to the spa. This property is in need of a major facelift. The overall decor, and space is very outdated. I was given a gift certificate to the spa, which is advertised as World Renowned. I have been to spas all over the USA and outside the country and while spas differ from place to place the overall ambiance, mood and service is consistent. The spa has a feel of a glorified locker room. There are high school boys working the desk and offer no assistance. I was not escorted through the spa doors and became completely turned around. The relaxation room where you wait is anything but relaxing. Outdated chairs from the 1980s and women walking around with a cooler on wheels refilling ice in the water coolers. The massage rooms are very outdated, the blankets are old and I was uncomfortable getting on the table. The manicure and pedicure area is separate from other spa services, which is fine, but you have to walk thru a public area in your robe which is uncomfortable. The nail area if old and outdated as well and the service is average at best. I will not be going back there as there are better spas in the Tampa area that make you feel pampered for start to finish. They automatically charge gratuity onto your service which I was not made aware of at the time of my booking. When you compare the price for the services and the service you received......it is overpriced. My recommendation........go elsewhere.
