Best Tanning in Denver – I am not an expert tanner, but I have gone to many tanning salons and have found Darque Tan to be my favorite.
Prices: Yes, it is $18.88 a month for unlimited level one tanning, which can get anyone tan. I do not believe you have to rotate your beds every single session to achieve the best tan. It's always good to upgrade every once in a while, but it will cost you. They ask you to put down an amount of money used as a "piggy bank" for all of your upgrades. The more you put in, the cheaper it is to upgrade. I personally think it's a little expensive and it's very deceiving because you are only seeing the 18.88 a month coming out of your account. On the plus, they do have really great beds and I've always seen great color from all levels.
I would say the best thing about Darque Tan would be there are NO contracts, NO sign up or cancellation fees. When you cancel, you are done. Their beds are worth the 18.88 a month.
Overall, Darque Tan is the best value for your money. I wouldn
LOVE Darque Tan!!! I have been a member for almost 5 years and continue to love the great smiles when greeted at the front door and the overall cleanliness. There are several levels of beds for different levels of tanning. This works well with my skin as I always achieve the maximum results. The staff is knowlegable and great at making recommendations for levels of beds and time. They also know the different lines of tanning creams available and some of the lines offer samples for purchase. The Versa Spa is a great alternative to traditional bulb tanning. Not once have I left orange or with streaks.
Don't be left in the "Darque" and experience one of the best tanning salons in Denver!
Blah. – Darque Tan is constantly letting me down. Every single time I go in there, to any salon, there is always a bulb out somewhere. When I kindly tell them, they shoot back with “Well, Steven was like supposed to be here to fix it like 3 days ago, sorry.”…I don’t even know who Steven is. Also, they are always so pushy and I already own 3 pairs of eyewear and countless lotions, I am on the most expensive package but still can’t seem to catch a break. I have seen the owner roll up in 4 different cars – including a Bentley, Ferrari, Range Rover and truck…and you are still up-selling me? He also yells very loudly to each and every employee, and I have seen two of the Darque Tan “managers” yell rudely at their staff as well, especially in the Broomfield location, which is why I avoid that one at all costs! They all smoke to, and stink!!! I catch the Broomfield and downtown girls getting out of tanning beds…WHILE THE STORE IS OPEN! Leetsdale is probably the only credible one, when Kaylie is working that is. I tried to cancel one time after the lady very openly told me I could cancel on the 15th, and did not give me a membership agreement, and when I called to cancel, they said “You have to do it on the 10th, per the membership agreement”…Broomfield, you keep letting me down! Luckily I have cancelled my membership there and will be taking my business elsewhere.
LOVE DARQUE TAN! – I've never once had a single problem with Darque Tan's staff, equipment, or cleanliness. People who write on here about being "scammed" need to try walking into an At the Beach. I've been tanning here for 5 years, and I've always been an extremely satisfied tanner.
my guilty pleasure ;) – I've lived my life as a pale for too long, Darque Tanning changed my life! I feel comfortable in my body for the first time! You can too, Once you visit the salon you couldn't feel more at ease asking personal questions about what it will take to acquire a flawless tan. After going to such a clean and well kept facility i will never go any where else! plus the service from the store manager Caley mia feels more like hanging out with a friend!
Superb Tanning – My friend is a member of Darque Tan and absolutely loves this tanning salon. I am in town for a week and my friend has been ranting the whole week before I came about Darque Tan, so I decided to come in for a session! I was over joyed with the lively front desk services of Caley MIA and very satisfied with the marvelous tanning bed that I spent a relaxing 10 minutes. Now you can enjoy the summer sun without paying for the airfare! Enjoy!
Well...it's a tanning salon... – I currently have been a member at Darque Tan for over 2 years now. I pay 48.88 a month for unlimited Versa Spa and level one and two beds. This is a GREAT deal and you will not find any cheaper at other salon in the area. Having worked at many tanning salons, I can say this with confidence.
I've had some issues with the beds not being cleaned properly when the maids are off shift, and the girls really hate when I complain about it. I'm not laying my naked body on a bed when it is not completely cleaned. I have worked in a salon, and I do know how disgusting it can get. (I won't go into detail.)
The store on Leetsdale is beauitful. The salon is always kept very clean and the beds are well maintained. The staff, on the other hand, can use a little work. There are a few girls that really know what they are talking about, and then there's the rest. Having worked here, as well as other salons, I know tanning salon employees don't have the greatest repuation, but these ladies really are not helping to improve on the stereotype. On many occasions while I wait to tan, I have to correct the employees on how they are explaining packages/tanning sessions. It's mindblowing to listen to them sometimes.
"Like...ok you can do this one right here and save like...10 dollars or something? yeah you should do it and then like....buy this lotion too because it's like...good for your skin and stuff and you can't really tan without it..."
The monthly packages are not a "rip-off" like a lot of reviews have stated. The "upgrades" for beds can be a little steep, and having been an avid tanner for many many years, I do not think you need anything other than a level one or two . I prefer spray over the beds anyways, but that's just a personal opinion.
Overall, I like the Darque Tan chain, and I'll continue to be a customer as long as the prices are not raised. It would be helpful with more locations around town, but maybe that's asking a little too much...
Employees and Scams – As a former employee of darque I can honestly tell you we have no information regarding your credit card. We also have no contracts-the only reason it would still charge your card is if you didnt cancel. I have had people call me and said they had cancelled their account but when I pull up their account a girl messed up sometimes-we do get busy and miss track. I can honestly tell you we always refund money. Terra is probably the best district manager-she has to run 7 salons and deal with all of us. Be patient. If you want a shitty scam tanning salon go someplace else like at the beach because they will give you one
Great Staff & Great Tans – I'm not a tanning expert and most tanning beds themselves seem similar to me regardless of where you go but I chose Darque Tan because of the great customer service. I've always had good experiences with everyone at their Leetsdale location, especially Caley, who is personable, listens to my tanning needs, and was the real reason I chose Darque Tan for a membership. You can tan anywhere but choose Darque Tan for service!
Great place to tan – I dont know what all these people are talking about. It is my experience that the girls who currently work at all of the darque tans ive been to are very friendly and educated. I have met Terra and she is also very friendly and the staff here are always quick to get to the bottom of any issues and i love the equipment and prices. Also the salon is always impecable! Kudos to Darque Tan! I am a very satisfied customer.
