Awesome experience, I would recommend this spa to anyone interested in any spa service especially deep tissue muscle massage. I felt like I was a member of the Green Bay Packers Football Team. The spa is very clean and meticulously

This place is considered high end because it's located in the Copper Leaf and is decorated nicely. It is filthy, the robes were once white but now smell funky and have a yellowish tint. My husband is 6'3" and the robes they provided barely covered his cheeks. The sanctuary is too small and on a Saturday you're packed in there like sardines bumping knees in your tiny robes. Once in the room, the floor was covered with salt from a previous body scrub and it was all over my feet. The outside of the wax warmer was disgusting and the wax was too hot, burned my legs! The quilt on the bed had a huge oil stain on it & looked like it hadn't been washed in months. The massage was wonderful, but the therapist used a warm towel under my neck and it smelled like rancid oil. I will only go back to this place if I want to get a staph infection or athlete's foot from walking on the disgusting carpeting!

On November 30th, 2011. I called and talked to the Manager, Janie regarding a Birthday Massage for my girlfriend. She took all my information and informed me everything was good to go. The next day, my girl friend went to get her massage and the staff notified her that they did not have my credit card info and that my girlfriend had to pay for the massage. My girlfriend paid for the massage and told me later that evening about it. This was a Birthday day gift, a surprise, once a year celebration and Spa Ben Mar Nico's could not even get it right. How??? Why?? This really ruined the evening for me, my girlfriend did not mind, but I wanted to make it special.

- What started out as a girl's night at the Spa turned out to one of the best experiences we have ever had. My best friend had a to die for facial while I had the most relaxing 90 minute massage. The heated tables were like climbing into a cocoon. The dim lighting set us each in the relaxing mode. It truly was the best experience. We look forward to our next girls night at the Spa.

So many things went wrong here that I don't even know where to begin! I had received a gift certificate to Spa BenMarNico's for my birthday this year and was terribly excited to cash it in. I had never been to an actual spa before and having passed by the CopperLeaf Hotel routinely on my way to work I expected such a prominent hotel to have a very high end spa...not so.

At first I was let down by the atmosphere (on the lower level and very cramped), but so much more was in store for me. I had hoped for a classy, professional experience but the employees I encountered showed no air of professionalism and I was greeted by a plethora of tank tops, pink hair, and cleavage galore. But still everyone seemed nice enough so I retained some enthusiasm.

First I had my nails done. I had gotten gel nails once before and loved their naturalness and durability. The girl doing my nails had explained to me that at Spa BenMarNico's they use "real" gel nails and not the acrylic gel most other places use that starts off as a powder. The whole process took over an hour and a half and I was not as impressed with the appearance as I had been previously...but they still looked better than my natural nails. However, less than twenty-four hours later they began to bubble and chip so I made an appointment to have them fixed up. The girl originally wanted to have me pay the $30 for a fill, so I had to explain that I had already paid $50 for the 24hr nails and did not intend to pay anymore. I ended up canceling this appointment anyway as by the second day whole nails had begun to fall off.

I also had a hair appointment that night. The lady cutting my hair was very nice but we had a bit a of miscommunication. I had asked for LAYERS and framing around my face. The framing around my face turned out excellent but I noticed that the ends in back ended rather bluntly so I asked if there was a way to thin out the back so it would look more natural. She was unsure of what I meant so I pointed out a picture in front of me that showed what I wanted to which the stylist responded "well, her hair does that because she has LAYERS". I was caught off guard and thus had no response.

I am not happy. This spa is nothing compared to the beautiful hotel in which it is located, perhaps I had set my hopes too high.

I do not have the time or the patients to recap my experience here, but if you do go in for any service, make sure the person working with you is certified. Ask to see a certification because employees without formal training have been told to lie about service time if asked. I for one will never be returning!

I was hired by BenMarNico's during the summer of 2009. I performed a trial massage on one of their clients and the client said it was the best massage he ever had. I was to return the following week, for employment. I was scheduled to work 9 hours and was informed ahead of time that the only pay was a percentage of each massage I performed. I called the night before my 1st shift and was told there were only 2 clients scheduled in that 9 hours of work. I realized I was being hired to do work as a "free" employee - cleaning, organizing, greeting clients, doing laundry, etc. I understand the economy is tough, but that's just ridiculous. www.massage-escape

I have had many spa experiences over the years, and my day at Spa Ben Mar Nico's in the Appleton Copper Leaf hotel was very disappointing. I went on a Saturday with 4 other women to enjoy the "Wine and Dine" package. It included 1/2 hour massage, 1/2 hour facial, and foot soak and polish. We got there, and everyone behind the counter seemed unorganized, and didn't have anything ready. We eventually were given our robes and sandals, and told to go change. We were lead to the whirlpool for a pre-spa soak, and though she told us she'd bring us towels, she never did, and were never checked on. We were left to go back to the front desk wrapped in our now wet robes. We then sat in the sanctuary still wet from the hot tub waiting for our services. We were each called in, and the lady from our group who was called LAST ended up being the one who was finished with her massage FIRST. She did not even get a full 1/2 hour!
I had Emmy, and she did a great massage! Very thorough, and well done for 1/2 hour. My facial was HORRIBLE! It was not Emmy, but some inexperienced girl. Everything was rushed, and while my face got cleansed there were no relaxing temple rubs, no neck massage as I have had for every other facial I've ever had. She did a meager attempt at a shoulder rub, which she pinched the heck out of me. She is no masseuse! It completely un-relaxed me!
We then all eventually met for the foot soak & polish. The foot baths were never cleaned out, before OR after we used them (we saw people get in immediately after us). The polish was simply that. A polish. NO top coat or anything. All 5 of our toenails were chipping or peeling by the end of the night. It was very poor and disappointing. The most attention we received was when we had to pay, and then they really tried to sell us the products. Then, all hands on deck!
I had a massage at Ben Mar Nico's a year ago, and it was good. This is why we went back. Needless to say, I will not return.
