While there are plenty of models in the 880 Series with lower price tags than the 980 Series luxury models, they still have many of the same features and offer consumers 7 different tubs to choose from including the Aspen, Maxxus, Optima, Cameo, Altamar, Marin and Capri.

The best-selling Sundance Spa is the Cameo, which fits up to 6 people and has a versatile Fluidix jet system, Intelli-Jet seating, immersive Accu-Ssage and aromatherapy-releasing jets. 

The 880 Series is the best for those seeking versatility.

The 780 Series models' paneling is what set them apart from the others in terms of hot tub design.

There are 5 different tubs to pick from which range from 3 to 7 person capacities.

The Chelsee is the most popular large spa in the 780 Series with a deep-tissue Accu-Pressure seat, as well as the exclusive 780 Series SMT seat which captures the feeling of a hands-on, deep-tissue massage to hit all the pressure points.

If you’re looking for something more compact, the Dover is your best bet. Perfect for intimate date nights, though featuring the same Accu-Ssage 

therapy seating, this tub is ideal for those who have their focus on receiving a superb hydrotherapy experience at a lower price. Designed with easy entrance and exit in mind, the low profile is perfect for those who do not enjoy climbing in and out of tall hot tub siding.


From the larger, 7 person spa models to the compact 2 person models, the 680 Series is known for providing a wonderful hydrotherapy experience at a low cost.

There are 6 tubs to choose from in the 680 Series, including the McKinley, Ramona, Edison, Peyton, Prado and Alicia.

If you're looking for easy installation, look no further. Select models in the 680 Series are “Plug N’ Play Spas”, meaning you can connect them to a 120v outlet yourself, and get to soaking right away! No electrician is required.

This is a budget friendly series aimed at providing the best value without sacrificing quality construction.

 We are not alone at highly recommending this brand. Here are a few Sundance Spas consumer reviews below:

Sundance spas consumer review


Sundance Spas are built with the highest standards of quality, durability, and performance. They use genuine parts which are made specifically for Sundance Spas and are backed by the Sundance Warranty.

You can check out the Sundance Spa parts catalog at The Spa Works, one of Sundances’ biggest dealers.

If you need the Sundance Spa parts manual or Sundance Spa parts diagram, you can head on over to this page, where you'll find manuals and diagrams for models from different years.

Each hot tub by Sundance Spas is protected against acrylic shell structure damage, shell surface damage, equipment and control damage, plumbing components defects, and cabinet damage. However, these Sundance Spa warranty lengths vary by year and model which is why we recommend heading over to their warranty page. It is a good idea to view the specific warranty lengths for the models that interest you. 


Sundance is a widespread brand with a variety of authorized hot tub dealers around the United States and Canada, making it easy for consumers to obtain a hot tub at a location nearest to them.


It can be frustrating to crave the benefits of a high-quality spa if you aren’t able to afford one in full. Luckily, Sundance Spas offers an array of financing options through local dealers for those with approved credit. Wells Fargo offers financing options for U.S. and Canadian residents. You can find more financing information on the Sundance Spas hot tubs financing page.


Sundance Spas manuals are provided for each model and series, as each functions a bit differently. Their hot tub manufacturer support page supplies downloadable manuals.


If you are in the market for tubs that are specifically compact and prioritize energy-efficiency, Hot Springs Spas are a great option. While we don’t believe they can match up to the adjustable Fluidix Jets of the Sundance Spas Hot Tubs systems, Hot Springs carries some of the most practical and compact tubs for those who are low on space.


As a subsidiary of the famous Jacuzzi brand, Jacuzzi lovers will instantly recognize some of the features and designs built into Sundance hot tubs. What sets Sundance apart from Jacuzzi is their commitment to a more “luxurious” experience.

While the Sundance brand and Jacuzzi brand are sister companies that utilize much of the same technology, there are differences in terms of spa functions that make Sundance Spas hot tubs better in our opinion.

For starters, Sundance uses bearingless patented Fluidix Jets. This durability results in less breakage and replacement down the line. They also use an advanced filtration system that is one of the only FDA and NSF-approved systems in the industry. This unique filtration system is made to enhance your water quality and protect against waterborne pathogens.


If you end up having trouble navigating the components of your Sundance Spa, you’ll be happy to know that there is a huge list of troubleshooting procedures available on their website.


Getting in touch with an associate to schedule Sundance Spa repairs is as easy as contacting your specific dealer or contacting the Sundance Spas Support Team.


Sundance Spas hot tubs use a specific filtration system that only authorized dealers may sell, meaning non-Sundance spa parts won't work with other hot tub models. If you’re interested in finding out more about the different Sundance Spas filter parts, you can learn more on their website.


The Sundance Spas hot tub heaters utilize an array of different pieces, including heater unions, o-rings, split nuts, and more. To locate these parts, we recommend heading on over to The Spa Works, or any other authorized Sundance Spas dealer.


There are a wide variety of hot tub covers on the market to help prolong the life of your spa. These SunStrong premium spa covers are crafted with a variety of high-quality, marine-grade materials that are UV-resistant and easy to clean. These hot tub covers are much stronger than your average vinyl cover, so you won’t need to worry about them losing durability over time. Check out their Sundance Spas covers page to learn more!


We hope that this Sundance Spas review has helped you to determine if a luxurious Sundance Spa is right for you.

They have a wide variety of hot tub options that are perfect for high-end buyers, and we would 100% recommend buying one if you want a top-of-the-line new hot tub!
