Save your money don't get massages here.... Went for Valentine's Weekend.. Enjoyed the Club Mud & The Grotto... Did not try the Mineral Bath... Had a 80 min. massage that was by far my worst experience .. The Therapist must have been 23 yrs old at the most and just had no clue.. It was a rip off to me I've had better massages done at my nail salon than here.. But I must say its a good place to go with girls for a spa day and hang out at the pool get a mani & pedi I just dont recommend the massages here.. The staff is also very unprofessional know one knows whats going on kind of enviroment.. Hope this helps
My Kind of Spa.
I have been to this spa on several occasions, In fact, I have been there over Mothers Day weekend which is quite possibly the busiest day of the year. Even then, you are able to find wonderful places to relax.
Do not go to Glen Ivy expecting the prissy, secluded spa environment at some private expensive day spa where you feel like they are watching your every move, because Glen Ivy Hot Springs is a place where you have the freedom to make your own experience. Some areas are busier than others and they do allow kids so some areas may not be as "relaxing" but I we always able to find a place to relax without issue.
You need to bring your own supplies (robe, coverup, sandals, etc) but they have all the items to take a shower. Personally I prefer to be in my own stuff anyway. Definitely bring an old swim suit because the mud bath is amazing for your skin (especially dry elbows) but it will stain light colored suits. I usually just wear an old one to the spa, its not like I am there to impress anyone anyway.
The thing I like about Glen Ivy is I never feel intimidated like I have at other spas, its really is an every-mans day spa. They have services to make any budget happy and honestly I couldn't think of a more relaxing place in So Cal for the money.
A nice family Spa. I read a few reviews about Glen Ivy, didn't think I would like it. But went with my friend, and had a wonderful time. The "lady" that said to many FAT people and ugly kids, watch out for Karma! The food was over priced and not that good. But other than that, I will go back next time I'm in California. It cost 38-58? to get in for the day, depending on the day of the week.,which I thought was great. If you want any massages it will cost you more, but well worth it. The grounds are beautiful. If you think you are high class, or prissy, Please do not go. Go somewhere they take care of your sorry butt, and the rest of us don't have to put up with you. Then we can enjoy ourselves. This is a family place, so if you don't like kids, stay away!! Don't bring a towel, use theirs. And depending on the material, the mud can ruin your suit.
No spa here. This place is not even close to a spa. It is like a water park without the rides. Too many loud people ( S.T.F.U.) that don't understand a spa atmosphere. There was disgusting skin (and lots of it) floating in the pools. There was hair on the benches in the steam room. It was so vile that it makes my stomach turn while I'm typing this. I guess with the economy they laid-off the cleaning people. What a f*****g rip off. Don't even waste your time going to this joint. You're better off going to the local drug-store and buying a tub of mud and a plastic pool and make your own spa...........it will be more relaxing and guaranteed the water will be clean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not worth the drive, the money or the time and certainly not relaxing.. A flawed concept: Not a spa to relax and feel pampered and not a destination. Don't buy a gift certificate because they "hold" them at the desk and dont find them when you arrive. A great start to a relaxing day! No robe or flip flops are provided but they propose that you buy them! Treatment choices are very limited. Treatments are provided in different buildings so you have to get dressed between treatments. When you arrive the desk clerk sends you to the first treatment building without telling you about the lockers/showers/bathrooms. Waiting rooms have extremely uncomfortable bench seats more appropriate to a bus station than a spa. Waiting room staff conduct business and private conversations. Phone rings constantly. Massage room walls are paper thin and your hear the bathroom vent and toilet flush repeatedly during the treatment. Facial is inadequate, eyes are ignored, no explenation of treatment or request for choice, aesthetician wears latex gloves which feel like rubber on your face (body scrub and massage include face treatment without gloves). No pillow under your legs so your lower back hurts. Sheets are too small to cover your feet. All of this is not improved by the funeral music. The place has many pools and smells of chlorine. It is packed with day visitors and noisy. It really is a local recreation center, not a spa.
Over priced and over rated. First check in was like talking to an auctioneer. The receptionist rushed us through the front lobby which left us confused and uncertain which services to schedule. We had a $700. gift card that I gave to my wife for xmas. It was our anniversary so I figured this would be perfect. Wrong!! Once rushed out of check in, we had to find our way over to the lockers. There we met a long line of people trying to schedule something, anything. On a Monday!! My mistake for not scheduling in advance. I should have arrived before the tour bus got there. Or it seemed that way. Very crowded and kinda weird. Oh and alternative life style persons everywhere! Several women tried to pick up my wife when she was alone between treatments. The pools and hot tubs had women on women and men on men. Sorry, but it seemed like a mistake spending a day there for our anniversary. $700. got us lunch for two, a bottle of wine, a facial for my wife, a pedicure for me, hot stone massage for two and one foot therapy. I should have enjoyed another bottle of wine instead of the $45. foot job. My suggestion: go to Vegas and get your spa too for the same price.
not ever again!!!!!!. My daughter took me to Glen Ivy for a girls day out, I thought wow this is beautiful. Wonderfully landscaped. We went into the locker rooms to change and I was so excited since this was my first visit.Our day begun, first we went into the salt water bath where I found dragonflies floating around, we went to the quiet zone where 3 ladies were drunk and not being so quiet, I did enjoy the water arobics. We went into the overlook pool where a couple well let's just say his bathing suit was buldging out and her top was off, wheres security, I don't like to sound like a prude but other people use the pools too, we walked off to go have lunch, The menu was fair as far as choices, the lines were long, service was awful only two laddies knew what they were doing, Say hello to an elderly lady who worked around all those young kids that acted like they were there not for work but for fun, and the other lady who made us a great salad who had great guest service the rest of them need to learn from these two ladies.I also noticed a very hard working young man I think a dishwasher who had a great smile I don't remember his name but he is a very hard working young man and clearly seen he enjoyed his job.As far as the cashiers go they had to ask us what we were having shouldn't they have known from looks, Grotto was so fun. but I was afraid of the mud only because going down the steps you can't see where your going and that kinda scared me not to mention the smell. would I go back to Glen Ivy, No reasons rude service, overpriced, dragon flies in the water and over crowded.
worst, worst place to go!!!!!. I would never go back to this so called spa, the mineral pool it's a sess pool that people cram into. All the other pools are clorinated. I couldn't feel relaxed because of overcrowding people everywhere and the prices are outrageous. Why should I spend that much money getting there to have rude service from the people that work in the cafe? My friends and I had the worst service from a supervisor that worked in the cafe she just thought she was miss perfect, to find out that she was even talking about us behind our backs
worst service in the cafe. I would not go back to the spa unless you want to be treated poorly especially in the cafe.very rude people work there. The supervisor acts like she is doing you a favor by being there she even argues with the guest she thinks she's right what ever happend to customer is always right. Then she talks about people behind their backs and laughs at them. That's the lazy rude people that work there
the worst spa ever!!. I have been to spas many times and this doesn't even compare! I would NEVER go again! the lines are Ridiculous! way too expensive for what you get. try some where else!
