Sit beside a waterfall on a snowy day as you warm your toes with a vigorous hydromassage – it’s nice to come home to an Altamar™ hot tub. Invite loved ones to join you, too. The Sundance® Altamar is one of our friends and family spas, large enough to seat 5-6 adults, and offering more seat varieties than most other family spas. The Altamar spa features the popular lounge seat with wrist and calf jets, a total-body relaxation feature you won’t find in other family spas. For an effective back massage, sit back in the Accu-Stage™ therapy seat and let the jets work out the tension, from your neck to your lower spinal area. If you’re looking for a luxury family spa with high-performance features and versatility, the Altamar rises above the ordinary. Pick up some great backyard ideas from satisfied Sundance owners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spa—Great Buying Experience We've had our Altamar spa for a little over a month and we couldn't be happier with our purchase. We use it 4-5 times per week and when the electric bill finally arrived it wasn't a shock. It is very economical to operate. Amanda (manager) did a great job helping us choose the right spa, answered all our questions, recommended an excellent electrician to wire up the spa and helped arrange the delivery. The delivery crew was great. They were clearly very experienced in all aspects of the set up and delivery, answered all my questions as they worked and did a fantastic job positioning the spa just where we wanted it. 5 stars for completely exceeding my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spa, Great Features. I bought this Spa about 4 weeks ago and it is so relaxing. All the features perform without flaw,,which is saying something nowadays. The water is actually very easy to maintain stability, clarity and sanitize. The Spa is a 6 person one and it is very easy to get in and out. As you can see from the photo my wife took even my 91 year old Mom is enjoying it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I paid $13,000 and the chemical guy was not there during fill up I have changed the filter twice and I'm not impressed with the jets that are for your feet - I like my arctic spa that I own better- because the jets are stronger

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inferior quality on outer shell The control panel/door warped within 1 month. Disconcerting for an expensive product like this. We were told it was heat related which does not bode well for summer in AZ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort to the tens The Altamar is the most comfortable spa I have ever been in. I thought the lounger seat was going to be my favorite until I sat in the Therapy seat. The jets moving on my back like a shiatsu massage were wonderful. What a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service to insure satisfaction I just want to say that I had problems at first but Sundance went way beyond the normal customer service to make me completely satisfied with my new spa. Gordon at the San Rafael store and everyone at the corporate office were fantastic. Thank you, Bill and Sandy Whelan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Altamar going on 13 years and loving it My spa was delivered two days after 9-11-01 and is still going strong. The spa still surface still looks brand new but a few other part show they have some surface deterioration which is absolutely expected. I have has a few small repairs over the years but as i look at it i can't see any need to even think about the need for a new one. I am totally happy with my Sundance Altamar.
