Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had my hot tub installed on May 16th replacing the same model I had before. We love it. The newer model not only looks better but it runs so much quieter and is much more energy efficient!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 1st Spa, Great but with surprises We bought an Optima as our first spa after great reviews from a longtime family friend who had their first Sundance for 15 years and just replaced it with an Optima. We live in Northern VA and use it year round. It was a great addition to the family and serves as a family gathering spot, and really helps remove the stress after a tough workday. While I'm sure the electric bill has gone up, it wasn't noticeable, as our kids and their electronics are probably bigger consumers. We chose Sundance over other brands due to its high quality reputation and longer warranty then others. This did of course come at a price premium to other brands. That said, we were very surprised how after only 4 months of use, that several of the blue LED lights started failing (odly only blue). It started with the waterfall light bar and then spread to the LEDs around 3 of the air control valves. Our dealer came out and did the repairs under warranty once it warmed up outside, which I might add were not simple repairs, and required cutting/ripping out the foam insulation. The insulation was replaced following repairs, yet I'm certain it is no longer as well insulated as it came from the factory. Then after 10 months of use, the blue LEDs around the remaining air control valves failed. We are now waiting (as of 11/22/15) on repairs, and it might already be too cold outside to complete. Pretty disappointing for such a high end spa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Best I bought my first Sundance Spa 21 years ago, this is my third. Wow, they just keep getting better and better with the technology advancements, from the blue tooth connectivity in the radio so I can listen to my own music from my cell phone to the ozonator system. This new spa demands less chemicals due to its new water purification technology, helps me save on operating costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate in Luxury I bought this spa a month ago. I LOVE IT! It is so relaxing to sit in my backyard and soak as i read or converse with others. It has definitely helped to relieve the tension in my back and neck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super experience before and after We had spec' a new hot tub along with our new pool and patio. Performance Pool answered all our questions and we think we chose the perfect spa ( a Sundance Optima) for our needs. Getting the chemical balance right took a few tries but we are pleased with the look of the tub inside and out. We can seat three adults and our three kids with no problem.
