    We had our last spa for over 15years. I knew what I liked in a spa and after some research found exactly what I was looking for in our new Chealsea spa. We love it and the therapeutic seaT is exactly what my back needed.

    We purchased our Sundance Chelsee model Hot Tub one month ago from SunSpa and totally love it. Not sure why we waited all these years to own a Hot Tub. It is a great way to start the day with our morning coffee and end the day with a night cap. From Dan and Ken in sales to the delivery and maintenance team – SunSpa made our experience terrific. Being first time buyers – Dan walked us through the process and listened to our needs and wants and helped us select the Chelsee model as the Tub for us, without “bad mouthing” competitors and without “in your face” presence. Best value for money we found!! Then it was the requirements – the sales team walked us through the process of what would be needed to have done prior to delivery and made recommendations for electrical hook ups – another experience that was terrific and completed without any household interruptions. The delivery and maintenance team arrived on time and within 8 hrs the tub was ready for use. An hour for set-up and filling and another six or seven hrs to come up to temp. The delivery team did not depart until they were completely satisfied that we were ready to look after our tub – following their walking through the process and demonstrating the controls. As for the product – the Chelsee – it is absolutely great – jets located where we will get the best use and comfort from them and spacious enough for us and 4 guests comfortably. I would definitely recommend SunSpa to first time buyers and for anyone wishing to upgrade or replace current Hot Tubs. Truly an excellent experience for us!!!

    This Sundance Chelsee Spa replaces our older model Sundance Marguis of 20 yrs. We use our tub outdoors year round in Utah with most likely 300 days uses per year. The Chelsee is almost the same floor plan with an added waterfall and light show features . The only main difference is that it is not quite as deep as our shoulders are above water unlike the older version. Backyards of America sold us both of the units and delivered and setup, the Chelsee was delivered and setup within 3 days of purchase by a great group of people.

    After 18 years, our Optima was worn out. We replaced the Optima with a Chelsea. We like the maintenance free exterior compared to the real redwood cedar that was on our previous spa. Our only recommendation would be to illuminate the buttons on the control panel so they are visible at night.

    Had the Chelsea installed about a month ago. Zero problems so far and am using it at least once a day. Only thing I wish it could do is turn down the feet massage jets. I personally like them but have had a lot of people say it tickles too much. Honestly it’s why I bought sundance because those jets help keep you in the seats when your getting blasted. I do have to say that you must go wet test before buying. Sundance wasn’t even on my radar and I was pretty settled on a bullfrog. I floated away instantly in the bullfrog. I figured out I needed foot jets to stay in the seat so I was sort of limited in my choices. I didn’t have enough money for a jacuzzi but I did for the sundance. I did not get the audio package due to bad reviews of every spa manufacturers audio systems. I live in Pittsburgh and have gotten my November electric bill. I am not running economy modes and my water temp is at 101 to 102 at all times. The added electric for this month was about 45 bucks. I expect that to get closer to 60 once the Temps stay low.

    We narrowed down our spa search to Sundance and a competitor. We chose Sundance due to their customer service history, the knowledge, friendliness and honest dealer at Sunspa Calgary. Not a day has gone by without taking advantage of a nice soak in the spa. The care for the Sundance Spa has been very easy. The Spa we purchased is the Chelsea. For my husband, my two teenage boys and myself it’s the perfect size, perfect jet placement and very comfortable seating. Highly recommend buying a Sundance Spa.

    I am very disappointed in the quality control and service of Sundance Spas. I purchased a Chelsea spa over a month ago. After delivery of the spa I noticed 2 problems with the hot tub. The first was a missing jet and the second was a stripped screw hole on the removable access panel. I notified Sundance spa immediately and I received a very generic “we don’t care contact your dealer about this” email from them. Strike number 1. When I contacted the local dealer he said I had to come back down to the store if I wanted to pick up a replacement jet. Strike number 2. The local dealer also told me they would send someone out to “look at” the stripped screw hole. After 5 weeks and multiple phone calls to the local dealer I have yet to receive a phone call from their technician. Strike 3. I very much regret getting a Sundance spa and I would strongly recommend you looking elsewhere before purchasing a Sundance spa.

    After doing some research, and comparing the Sundance Chelsee to other “saltwater” based systems, I purchased a Chelsee in May. Bit of an ordeal getting it physically installed – we have a challenging backyard that made a crane not possible.

    However it’s now been in for a bit over a month and I have to say – we love it! I have 2 kids (9 and 5) and a spouse, and we have all enjoyed spending time in it, both before and after work. It is very relaxing. I am also glad I sprung for a tub big enough to hold an army – because at times we have 4 or more people in it, and the size is quite nice for that.

    I also like the light based systems as opposed to “saltwater”. After doing some research and talking to people knowledgeable about this stuff – turns out the saltwater systems are really just splitting a molecule to create chlorine/bleach. The light based systems typically use a much lower chlorine content than their saltwater counterparts. This results in much less chemicals on the body!

    Biggest challenge so far has been “me” – being a new hot tub owner, I am still becoming familiar with the process for water balance, ph, shocking the tub, etc. But I am coming along.

    Overall very satisfied. There were a few glitches, but nothing unexpected.

    We’ve had the spa for two months – and love that there are reflexology jets where ever you sit! A few things that would make it better – if ALL the jets worked at any speed, and if if ALL the jets were adjustable. Also, only one tub comes with wood along the top. We liked the styling of that case (it didn’t look so much like a bathtub), but it only fit one style tub which didn’t work for us – so we sacrificed style for function.

    First, they need to make tubs for tall people. The seats aren’t very deep. The jets that are suppose to hit certain areas on the back, don’t! The “calf” jets hit our ankles. We filled to water level, right below the head rest. Once in the tub, 3 of the head rest came off and they continue to fall out. The compartment for the MP3 holder, the rubber holder inside the air tight box, the rubber pegs were broke off.

    I got this spa for my wife who has RA (rheumatoid arthritis). I figured it was worth a shot at reducing her joint pain, and helping her sleep. Although it may not solve all of her problems, it certainly helps. In fact, we’re finding that the whole family gathers in the spa at night. Maybe the best 30 minutes of the day. It’s pretty easy to maintain, and so far, we haven’t had a problem. I know it’s a bit more expensive than others we saw on-line, but I’m pretty convinced you get what you pay for. Some things you buy and never use. This is not one of them.
