Whether you live on a windswept shore or a sunny suburban street, the versatile Sundance® Hamilton™ spa will make you feel right at home. Big enough to welcome family and friends, it’s also ideal for a solo spa hydrotherapy session. The therapy lounge and the Accu-Ssage spa therapy seat each provide a deeply relaxing massage, while side-by-side seating lets the two of you enjoy soothing neck massages delivered by SMT Micro Adjustable jets. When night falls, the bubbling water glows with SunRay LED lighting, which includes light rings around the spa’s air control.

    Had an old spa, but this takes the cake, amazing. Upgraded to this one and have been enjoying almost nightly. It has become a main feature in my back yard on the patio. Everyone in the family loves it. This is the ultimate relaxing machine. The beauty of the stand alone spa is that you can enjoy all year round. Having multiple jet choices, and seating arrangements takes care of everyone’s preferences. The waterfall is beautiful. This unit is so easy to take care of.

    I bought my Sundance Spa a month ago at Pool City on McKnight Rd in Pittsburgh PA. I reviewed a lot of spas and what gravitated me to the Sundance Spa was the features, reputation, price, and overall design. Compared to other spas they do not use bearings which are known to seize so this spa will last a long while without needing unnecessary maintenance due to poor design. The price was amazing as it came in slightly under other brands with less equipment. Also consumer reports gave it a great rating and boasted about their long tenure in the spa space.

    We are super happy with our Sundance purchase and would certainly recommend this brand to anyone!

    My hot tub was installed a month ago. I absolutely love it. The only thing I wish the seats were not as deep. I have bought pillows but the pillows still want to slid everywhere. It does seem to take a lot of chemicals but I still enjoy it very much.

    This tub is the best. While my wife and love the filtration system on the Sundance Spas, I’m more into…dang does it feels nice! The jets have more than enough power, and with the filtration system, the water takes very little effort to maintain. We had narrowed it down between the Jacuzzi and Sundance with Sundance winning due to the filtration. This tub is being used every day by at least 3 adults. We purchased the upgraded cover and we are glad we did.

    We replaced our 23 year old Vita spa with a Sundance Hamilton and it was like going from a Toyota to a Maserati! The jets are fantastic and we love the way the power easily can be lowered or raised. The recliner fits a tall person unlike many of the tubs we looked at. Our neighbors down the street tried it out and they bought the same one! Plenty of leg room when multiple people are in it.

    We bought our Sundance “Hamilton” model spa a month ago and my wife and I have spent time in it during all but two days since. We love the variety of jets and the size is perfect for entertaining another couple. It’s been very easy to maintain the chemistry of the tub too, and my skin actually feels moisturized and soft when I get out – which is a lot different than I remember of my experiences with older hot tubs. We think our electric bill went up by about $20 this month and that is with 2 weeks of subzero nighttime temperatures.

    My only complaints are that the one-speed jet is pretty loud and the BluWave speaker system really can’t be heard when any of the jets are on – those speakers should be angled to face the inside of the tub, not straight up towards the sky (I’m glad I there was a free BluWave system upgrade promotion when I bought my tub as I would have been very disappointed with it’s performance if I shelled out the normal $1500 for it).

    Bought the Hamilton spa one month ago hopeing it would help alleviate or lessen arthritis pain and it really does help with pain management. I use it three times per day and have went from taking 800 mg of Motrin a day to zero or 200 mg! The lounge seat is my favorite because the jets work on my neck, back, behind knees and feet.

    I’ve had this spa for approx. 1 month and so far I am pretty happy with it. I stayed right in the middle and it meets my needs. The warranty sealed the deal for me. Many similar models only had 2 years full warranty. This has the 5-year so at least I know for 5 years I am covered before needing to replace or repair any parts.

    Last week we had our new Hamilton was delivered and had issues on start up. I promised a follow up review to let you all know what the problem was and how it was resolved. I contacted the dealer (Pool City, Washington PA) first thing the next day. After a couple hours of waiting to hear from service, I spoke with a manager who had service call me back in 5 minutes. The tech (Mark) was fantastic. He assured me that it was likely something simple. He walked me through checking various items in the control panel and we immediately discovered a small wire leading to a plug on the control panel that works the temperature sensor had not been properly installed at the factory. He tried to walk me through the process of fixing it, but the wire would not attach properly to the plug. Mark said he would come to my house that day and fix the issue. True to his word, a couple hours later he arrived and the spa was soon working perfectly. Mark came to my place to fix what is certainly a first world problem while he was on vacation with a wife recently home from the hospital and 7 year old twins! Mark not only fixed my spa, but restored my faith in peoples work ethic. I’m still a little upset about the spa not having been properly build/tested before leaving the factory. The whole episode cost me a day off work and much stress, but I guess all’s well that ends well? Whatever Pool City is paying Mark….it isn’t enough. Probably saved Sundance a sale as well since our friends (who are in the market for a spa) loved our hot tub when they visited.

    The control panel does not light up and therefore cannot be seen at night when commonly used. When pump 2 is on, the heater does not work and the spa temperature decreases. A spa of this quality and cost should have these features.

    Purchased our Hamilton back in 2011 and have no regrets. We sunk ours into our deck and it’s only five steps from door to hot tub. We love the layout with hubby preferring the lounger area. I exercise my legs by cycling them for the twenty minutes we are in it. Hubby being on the lounger gives me room for exercising. We use ours all year round by dropping the temp in the hot weather months to a temp closer to pool water which allows me to keep with my exercising.

    We both enjoy the lighting options and the waterfall which is lit as well. Having two jets gives us varying degrees of bubbles and turbulent water. I just can’t say enough about our hot tub. We have had a few issues but the warranty has handled them to our satisfaction. Surprisingly, our power bills reflected very little change and the expense of chemicals and filters is relatively insignificant.

    We bought our Sundance Spa in mid-January 2015. We’ve had it for approximately 3 months and simply love it. We have spent many an evening relaxing in it under the stars in our back yard. I wish we’d have bought it sooner as it is a great addition to our lifestyle! I would recommend anybody who is looking to add an affordable but top of the line experience spa to your life – to consider a Sundance Spa!

    My Hamilton has been up and running for a few days now and I’m really enjoying it so far. I had an old (1992) Cameo and the seating layout in the Hamilton is the same but the selection and configurability of jets in the Hamilton is soooo much better. Having two pumps for the jets is great; The ability to turn certain individual jets off and on is really nice and lets you customize your “hydrotherapy experience”. The synthetic cabinet looks great and I’m hoping it will prove to be very durable.

    I’m not wild about the setup of circulation and filter/heat cycles because you are limited to “n-times per day” cycles and cannot set the actual start and stop times for various functions. Additionally, if you choose an “economy” mode, the heater WILL NOT RUN even if you are using the spa (i.e. have pushed one of the jets buttons) if you are outside of one of the programmed heating cycles. This makes no sense to me- if the heat drops below the setpoint when the tub is actually in use, the heater should come on.

    The “waterfall” feature is silly in my opinion, and the pillows are kind of hard.

    This is our third Sundance spa. The first was 20 years old and remained at a house we sold and the last one was 14 years old when we replaced it with the new Hamilton model. The jets are a great improvement. We went with a lounger this time and we do miss having controls on both sides of the tub. We live in Iowa and liked just having one side uncovered in the winter for less heat loss. We have yet to see our power bills but hope the improved insulation helps. Be careful dragging a hose across the surface of the tub as the surface scratches very easily. We had to use a bit of automotive polishing compound after siphoning some dirt out. Our last one had the rough surface so it wasn’t a problem and while the 1987 model had the smooth surface it didn’t scratch like this one does.

    We paid extra for the brand name and for an upgraded model with an extended warranty. So far, the Spa had jet covers (7 of them) come off the first time we used the spa. Service took care of it but only after we were forced to drain the Spa after heating it up and spending over $75 in start up chemicals. One big feature that we are disappointed in is the lack of an illuminated control panel because at night it is impossible to see the control buttons. The true test will be if it holds up for the many years we plan on using it. The average review is because I believe that for the price we paid, there should be no defective jet covers and the control panel should be illuminated in the dark.
