  • Save yourself money, disappointment, and aggravation by not going to the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa.
    I brought my girlfriend here for her special day. What a mistake! I'm a local, and will never visit Safety Harbor Resort and Spa again. 
    The Safety Harbor Resort and Spa continues to disappoint, again and again in the same visit. After each incredible instance of poor service, we assumed it was an anomaly, and gave the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa the benefit of the doubt. Again and again we were slapped in the face with more poor service. The Safety Harbor Resort and Spa gave provides one star service at a four star price. 
    I did not get the value for which I paid. I feel like I was ripped off. Safety Harbor Resort and Spa appears to be a big old institution, that runs resting on its laurels (its attractive, historic spa). During our visit the indoor pool and hot tub were closed for renovations. The help is dispirited and unfriendly and give the impression of disliking their job, and of doing as little as possible to get through the day. 
    I bought the couples ?SpaCation package,? a one day deal. Here are the details of my experience.
    The day began with a 25 minute wait to check in on a line at the spa reception desk with only four people ahead of us, and four receptionists behind the counter.
    We were given a perfunctory ?tour? of the spa which did not include seeing the pool, and mostly consisted of a dour faced staff waving her hands in different directions. Our ?guide? walked ten steps ahead of us at a rapid pace. She did not take us into any of the areas of the spa she described, or the rooms, despite my showing interest. She apparently could not wait to get back to something more important than showing us around on our first visit here.
    The long wait at the reception desk, and the ?tour? foreshadowed the level and quality of service that we would experience throughout the day. Staff were unfriendly, and unsmiling. They appeared to just be going through the motions of their job, and gave the impression of being bothered when you could finally catch them to ask them anything. Only the laundry ladies and doorman were friendly. 
    After check in, our day began with the included lunch at the Fountain Grille Restaurant. The package did not include drinks. It was, hands down, among the worst dining service I had ever experienced. 
    The waitress had a different understanding of what food the SpaCation package included than what I had been told by ?Reception? when I bought the package. When I tried to clarify what was included she started ?yessing? me, turned her back, and walked away. 
    The waitress was incredibly rude. She repeated her performance of turning her back and walking away while we were ordering several times throughout our meal. 
    The waitress left the extra service on table, leaving the table crammed with dishes and silverware. There were ants running around on table (this was inside the restaurant, not on the patio).
    The waitress told me they have a ?full bar,? but then was only able to offer two types of craft beer, and a few domestic beer. She then brought me the wrong beer and encouraged me to accept it. Then she spilled my drink on the table cloth and barely blotted it up, walking away without an apology.
    When the food finally arrived, the waitress plopped down our meals without a word. She mixed up who got what, and walked off before we could say anything. She then vanished for most of meal. Later in our meal it took requests of three other service personnel to get creamer for coffee- twenty minutes later!
    How was the food? I would say the baked brie was a bright spot.
    I later tried to clarify what was included in the SpaCation package with the spa receptionists. When I finally caught their attention, they said, ?That's not a spa issue,? and pointed me upstairs to ?Reception.? No apology or explanation offered. When I finally got to speak with an ?administrator? she said she wanted all their guests to be happy and would refund the cost of our drinks, then she walked off. That was it.  
    We both received brief massages. I would rate the massage as fair to good. It might have been better if we had bought a longer massage. The masseuse was friendly and professional. 
    The rest of the day we wandered around the pretty historic building, enjoyed the outdoor pool, and were in and out of the steam room and dry sauna. These activities were nice because no staff involvement was required. 
    The SpaCation included ?fitness classes.? When we checked out these classes many of them did not run as apparently no one was interested enough to show up. We participated in two ?classes.? In one of them we were the only participants. In the other, only two other people participated. It was a bit awkward. The quality of the first class was good, the second was fair. I will not identify the classes to avoid embarrassing the instructors. 
    After our long day at Safety Harbor Resort and Spa we chose to have dinner elsewhere. In fact, rather than face the poor service at the Fountain Grille Restaurant again we grabbed a bite to eat at McDonald?s. And guess what? McDonald?s friendliness and service ran rings around the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa.
    I recommend that you be skeptical of the overly positive reviews found on this site, and that you will find elsewhere online. Carefully consider the detailed, negative reviews you will find on the internet from locals who are familiar with how the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa operates. 
    In summary, I was extremely disappointed with our visit to the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa and feel that I was ripped off. I do not recommend Safety Harbor Resort and Spa to anyone that expects good value, or  high quality service. 
    I waited a long time to think about this review before finally posting it, as I do not like to post negative reviews. Now, over a year later, after looking back on our experience I feel that posting this review is justified and not an impulsive decision. I still feel the same way about the visit. 
    2-6-2015 Update: The night after our visit I realized that the masseuse hurt my neck by using excessive pressure. Ever since my massage the vertebrae in my neck pop and click and cause me pain, which is a problem I did not have before my massage there.

  • I like him and was last there about three months ago. He has been a consistently good doctor. He has been very helpful and monitors my blood every three months. I have had good experiences with him. He has always been available every time I have gone in. He is always very punctual. We have had some problems with the billing and administration, but we have gotten them resolved. He is my doctor and I am staying with him.

  • It is all women and it is extremely friendly. It also is more family-oriented and is great. The people who work there are phenomenal. They know my name and are helpful. I can't say enough about the people. The facility overall could use some help.

  • The facility at Shapes Total Fitness for Women is great. The customer service is great too although I understand that it is under new management. I haven't been in because I have had a couple of surgeries. I haven't been able to go back and I can't go back until the end of May. I haven't been there since the new management took over. I was very pleased. The facility is clean and it is all women. They have plenty of equipment in there, anything you could possibly want plus a pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. I had surgery just after Christmas.
    - Mary E.
  • It's clean. Sometimes it's crowded and sometimes there's not enough equipment but it's a good experience. I don't use personal trainers but I think they have them. The people are nice. The hours are convenient. They have daycare and it would be very helpful if you have little ones.
    - Leslie H.
  • It is brand new and just opened in November. I quit just after the minimum amount for quitting. I just don't like to work out. I liked the availability of the facility. Just like the name says, I could go basically any time. They gave me a key and it was up to me about when I wanted to go. The equipment was very extensive and the price was good, it was $10 per week. You just had to be motivated to go, which I wasn't. Basically you are on your own once you sign up.
    - Ellen R.
  • I joined the fitness center and used a personal trainer session. The office staff was very helpful to get me setup. The trainer was prompt and discussed with me my goals and specific needs. He tailored a plan for me and walked me through the steps until I understood what I needed to do.
    - THOMAS S.
  • I was pleased with my results of body fat loss and weight loss and continue to see results at this time.  Also, my balance has improved and I am still working on my muscle tone and core strength.  I recommend Bodies by Design to friends as I know they will feel and look better.  I now fit into my wedding dress from 15 years ago!  And receive so many compliments when I visit friends and relatives.

  • They have a great facility and location. They keep it very clean and they offer a great selection of programs. I like that it is geared towards families and they offer activities for children. Their staff is always courteous.
    - Valarie S.
  • When I brought my concerning lab results from my primary care with me, he literally told me he DID NOT WANT TO LOOK AT THEM - to let her deal with them, that he would manage ONLY manage the medication he prescribed to me and that any other doctors (and their lab results) could (quote) and quot;do their thing!and quot; Other aspects of my visit were too sensitive and uncomfortable to talk about publicly. I can only share that my personal experience was uncomfortable and uninformative.
