So this store is totally for tourists which is completely fine. I had a ball there and got lots of neat gifts for people. Is it over-priced? Yes, for most things. However, it's completely in line with most of the other stores in the area that have tourist gift shops. I loved the variety - you can get everything from Hawaiian clothes to medicine to candles. They have a great selection!
PROS: Great for gifts, awesome location, wide selection...
CONS: Somewhat pricey...
I've been here for everything from used tires to regular car repairs. They have never tried to over-sell me anything and have taken the time to explain any services that they've recommended. I even brought the car in once because I heard a strange noise. It turned out to be nothing and they didn't charge me a thing. As a woman, I really appreciate their sense of honest, and definitely don't feel like I'm getting taken here.
I have been to this office twice now and will definitely be loyal to Dr.Spector. She was very helpful with some issues I was having a year ago and really takes the time to sit down and explain things to you. I am not yet in the baby stage of my life and she is just as attentive during my exams and after when she chats with me. The front desk staff is wonderful, too!
Perhaps I'm biased because I've been going to see Dr.Clore since I was a kid (15+ years now), but I am a huge fan of this office. The receptionist is lovely, the dental hygienist is amazing, and Dr.Clore is super personable. I have had good experiences for both cleanings and filings - they make a great team!
We normally take our cats to a different vet, but recently made an appointment here due to an emergency. They were very accomodating on fitting us in. They also were very friendly and excited to meet our pet. During the exam, there was the vet plus two assistants in the room which was actually rather calming. They were very friendly to our pet and to us and took the time to answer all of our questions. We will definitely use them again on an emergency basis and may even switch!
I have stayed at the Flamingo 5 times now. It is my Vegas hotel of choice. The price is right, the rooms are great, and the location could not be better. It is directly across from Caesar's, and easily walkable to the Bellagio, Harrah's, and Bally's. Plus, with the new tram right in the hotel, you can easily get anywhere on the Strip. Oh, and their pool is great - this hotel is awesome!
PROS: Reasonably priced, great location!
Considering Maui prices, we were very pleased with the Plantation Inn. Our standard room was charming and opened up on to the terrace. We were walking distance to all of the Lahaina shops and neat restaurants. The complimentary breakfast each morning is fabulous. We tried both the poached eggs and the french toast - wonderful. Highly recommend!
PROS: Great location, reasonably priced, excellent complimentary breakfast!
CONS: Sometimes hotel restaurant can be loud
First, their ocean review has been replaced by the current construction going on. I could get over that, but the service was terrible, the food was mediocre given the price, the watery sodas were $2.50 each and we were each charged for 2 sodas. My husband's Ahi was way over-cooked and my pasta on Hawaiian Airlines was better than the pasta there. Perhaps it was a bad day for them all around, but I wouldn't go back.
When I initially selected my dress, I felt very pressured by the staff there as they totally hated the one that I really liked. They then showed me only one other dress and told me I looked stunning and that was THE dress. So, I went with it. The final product did not have the exact specifications we had talked about (i.e. different types of straps), but did end up being beautiful. And they were super enthusiastic and excited about the wedding when they finally handed the dress over to me. So, I kind of have mixed feelings about the place. Definitely try it for yourself!
I tried this vet hospital with my two cats this past summer since it was closer to home. However, I was not overly impressed. The front desk was under-staffed, only one person on duty. Also, it turned into a very long wait for the appointment. While the vet who helped us was very nice and seemed competent, the prices seemed higher than other vets I'd been to in the area. We tried this office twice with similar experiences each time and later switched.
PROS: Very knowledgeable vet!
CONS: Under-staffed front desk, sometimes long waits for appointments...
