Cantabria Jet Systems

Seat or lounge (varies by model) for neck, shoulder and middle back massage.

A contoured pillow cradles your head while specialized, above-the-water-line jets focus on neck and shoulders.

Multiple jets focus on large muscles in your back. Select models work on wrists and calves.

A unique jet configuration relieves tension and pain in your back’s lumbar region.

These jets provide a deep, penetrating massage to thighs, knees, calves and feet (Two in most Utopia® models).

In Niagara, Geneva and Cantabria these jets work an often overlooked stress point and enhance movement there.

In Utopia® models they work on muscles in the lower leg.

Jets stimulate and revive the muscles in your feet that bear your full weight all day.

Anchors and holds you in place while powerful jets work on sore muscles.

Cantabria Reviews

Cantabria is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Truly Remarkable Piece of Equipment We originally purchased a Hot Springs Grandee and within two weeks, traded it in on a Caldera Cantabria - same parent company for both (Watkins). Used "Crystal Pools" in Central Pennsylvania - they are a "top-notch" Retailer with excellent customer service. The difference between the two spas were like night and day. The Cantabria is truly the "Best-of-the Best" - the Cadillac of Hot Tubs. Style, comfort, ease of maintenance, and luxury are all the qualities of this spa. I selected the "Sterling Marble" shell and "Merlot"cabinet. At night, the lights reflect off of the Sterling Marble and it is absolutely beautiful. The contoured seats are so comfortable and no matter where you sit in the spa, there is a place for your feet to keep you "in the seat". The jets are strategically placed for all parts of your body (legs, thighs, calfs, back, neck, wrists, and especially the feet) and you can adjust the pressure to your liking. The "massage" lounge is heaven. Controls are easy to use. I look for many years of relaxation in this spa. I love the size and so do my six grandchildren. You get what you pay for and the Cantabria is top-of-the-line and AWESOME! Thank You !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical Escape My Cantabria Caldera spa is nothing less than magical. Each and every time I use it I am less stressed, muscle soreness fades and ultimate relaxation is achieved. There are some issues with energy consumption but that might have been due to the misleading info of my sales rep. The service calls for the warranty are also charged to me when I assumed that under warranty means no costs. There have also been issues with the remote and sound system but the overall use and ease of maintenance are superb!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from relaxing in KY Our spa could only have been better if I had been better educated about taking care of it. Once I learned the essentials of spa care, keeping the water sparkling is now easy. Very low maintenance compared to a pool. Kids love it, we keep the temperature about 100/101 so not too hot for them. It's a nice way to end the day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! When the spa was delivered only the delivery men showed up. No salesmen or advisers to show us the correct way to start it up and care for it. I had to learn the hard way. I asked the men that delivered the spa if they knew how to get it going and one of the guys said just throw a cup of liquid bleach in it. Bad idea since you're not supposed to put any liquid anything in there. They didn't know where to position the spa. They put it so close to the house that my husband didn't have enough room to put the cover lift on. One year later and I can finally go in when I'm home alone. I couldn't lift it alone. We each should get a tee shirt. Sometimes a couple of adjustment nob covers come off and are floating in the spa. For the price I don't think this should happen. The water can be hard to adjust at times. We also never got the net that goes over the hose. I saw it the day it was delivered, but then it disappeared. They sent the wrong steps. We did not have a good salesman. He didn't help us at all. I noticed a bonus on their website that said if you buy a spa you get a free stereo. We didn't even pay for our spa yet and they wouldn't even stand by what the website said. Overall it's a beautiful spa and we love. The company could have and should have treated us much better. Again we should at least both get a tee shirt xl thank you, Denise

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spa Review The multi-function control unit is not user friendly for lighting and self cleaning modes. The frogger bromine unit never puts enough bromine in the water so it has to be added every week manually. The control panel should have the ability to electronically flip the screen so you can use it from inside of the tub verses the outside. Too much air leakage noise from the valves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love My Cantabria After more than one year, I have not regreted having a spa and a nice, big-good-looking one like the Cantabria is a great choice. It has 7 or 8 seats and each one provides a slightly different massage experience. The big jet that shoot from the bottom is great to massage my legs after a long bike ride... I love it. I also like the big size because it allows me to float fully extended which is a nice way to look at the stars. Maintenance is easy and I have been able to keep water quality within range without obsessive care. Keeping the Alkalinity up-at the right level has been the biggest issue. The nicest thing is that the guys from La Costa Pool and Spa are always willing to answer any questions (great dealer). I have a problem with a siding board splitting from what I suspect is excessive heat or sun (side facing the sun) but a replacement has been order. However it's taking some time to get the part replace, but it is not a big deal. The spa still works fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Muscle Relaxer I have had the spa for just about two years now and have not regretted purchasing it. The pressure from the jets is amazing, my wife and kids have to turn them down because it's just too much for them. It has helped tremendously with my lower back pain. If I go three days without sitting in the spa my back will let me know that it is over due for a spa treatment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tub Terrible Cover The tub is a phenomenal experience. We have had it for 3 hears and it is a joy to relax in. The worst part is the cover. It started to fall apart in the first three months. It is almost useless after all this time. After the first 50 days the handle on the front began to rip off. A replacement was ordered but the seller said the company did not warranty the cover after 3p days. A replacement was going to cost $1500. I use a tarp and decided to build a gazebo instead. Great tub worthless cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for aches & pains! We have had our Cantabria about 9 months now and use it everyday. We live in the northeast and were very glad we placed it inside a gazebo this past winter so we didn't have to keep shoveling it out! It recently developed a leak in the piping under the lounge seat which our dealer (Treat's Pools) came out and thankfully was able to fix without having to take it out of the gazebo. It advertises that it seats 8 people but I would never try that because if you keep the water level above the jets and put 8 people in it the water will overflow. I have arthritis and really like the low settings on the jets. The high setting can be too painful at times. I only wish the lounge seat came with a low setting because I originally thought that would be my favorite seat but found I can only stand the forceful jets for a few minutes. There are so many options in seats though you will definitely find a favorite or two. I will say the knobs for the jets are very confusing and we still can't figure out what the 3 knobs closest to the control panel actually do. Most of the time it is just my husband and I in the tub and we move from seat to seat to get the full effect of all the jets. I don't know how I lived without one for so long and I am so glad that I chose this over an in ground pool. We are still working out the chemicals. It came with chlorine chemicals which were inexpensive and very easy to use but you had to put it in every day and it gave me a rash. We have switched to Bacquaspa chemicals and they are more expensive, and much more confusing because there are so many of them. It seems like we are always breathing in their fumes when the jets are on also and it took a while adjusting them so we didn't get sore throats every time we went in. I'm thinking the next time we empty it we will try the Bromine that is supposed to be used with it and a water softener. The dealer had told us our electric bill would increase about $30 a month using it everyday and that might be true if you only run it on the clean cycle for 10 minutes a day. We like to stay in it for 20 to 30 minutes each night so our bill runs about $75 more a month. It also depends on the temperature setting which we kept at 102 in the winter and only lowered it to 100 now that it's warming up outside. Overall, we are very happy with our purchase and believe we have one of the best hot tubs on the market!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warranty Over but still love the spa We love our hot tub. We've had it for 7 years now. Of course, after warranty it begins to have issues. First the circulator pump broke. We ordered a new one and put it in ourselves. Luckily my husband has the knowledge and skills to do it. A month later pump #2 (2 speed pump) began leaking. The bearings are bad. Since we are currently unemployed, we can't order the $500 pump. My husband disconnected the power to the second pump so we can still use it. They should have an extended warranty or give discounts on service and parts after the original warranty expires.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jet Rings amd Heater Awesome spa! Looking forward to the permanent fix for the jet rings that keep coming off, very annoying. Only negative is the heater shuts down when all the jets are in use, including the lounge. Trying to get a fix for this but it seems like poor engineering. We run the spa at capacity quite a bit and it's not too pleasant to have the temperature start dropping. Stay tuned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Spa, With Room for Improvement We love our Catabria spa. The lounger is my favorite seat, but my wife loves the Ecstasy seat, with the shoulder jets that keep you planted firmly underwater. I will say that the spa still has room for improvement, especially at such a high price (compared to other companies). There have been little airjet covers that will occasionally come off, but we're good at figuring out where they go, and they snap back into place. And no matter how wide we open the Bromine FROG cartridges, our test strips always say that we're low on Bromine. All in all, we're happy, but we could have also used a walkthrough. If Caldera put up "Getting to know your spa" videos on YouTube (or directed where to find such videos) that showed you what each knob and button does, that would be extremely helpful. We've recommended this spa to friends and family, and we'll continue to do so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice spa Very roomy with many option for seating. We have had and issue with the stand pipe not being installed properly and a minor control panel issue. The dear we purchased our spa from came and took care of the issues - however our water bill felt the effect of draining and filling 2 times to get the issues corrected. The lights, music, and water falls make for a great experience.

The kids love the waterfalls that light up at night!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cantebria Tub in Colorado Its a very nice tub, but its over priced. I have had a few problems with the Icast system as well as some of the spinning jets, they dont spin as well as I think they should. Its a large tub and can really fit a lot of people, or allow 2 or 3 to really stretch out and get comfortable. The water care is a piece of cake! My biggest dissapointment has been the qualtity of the cover, its a split cover with only 4 corner fasteners. I live in Colorado where the wind blows, so I regularly have to set 4 35 pound bricks on the cover to hold it tight so I dont get a lot of dirt in the tub. I would reccomend that Caldera take another crack at designing a better cover system for this big tub. I realize it probably has to be split, but you could easily add 10 anchors to the cover and it would hold tight much better. The hold down design is a little iffy as well, in the winter the condensation ices them up and they are nearly impossible to unfasten. Requiring a lot of extra work thawing them out when you just want to uncover the tub and get in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed with hot tub Disappointed with the construction of the hot tub. The side panels are held together with Velcro. They popped off and the dealer had to screw them in altering the appearance. One of the Jets fell off and I had to pop it back on. One of the handle knob fell off and I had to put that back on. Our exterior lights do not stay on as programmed. They are always needing to be reprogrammed. Disappointed in this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a hot tub time machine... In all seriousness, this is a fairly well designed tub. The downside is the first one the shell cracked even with the cover always on it, the the side panel has warped twice under partial exposure to sun as my tub is half sunken in my deck. The jets are nice but the caps keep coming off easily. And the new replacement tub's speaker system is far from as good as the one I had originally bought, where the audio quality of that system was a large reason why I chose the tub over others. The company is taking a long time to address a new issue in having with the replacement tub. Panel buckling, micro speaker cracklings...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cantabria Bust I know a Hot Tub loses heat, I know I live in the Midwest, I know it is outside but....I purchased my WARM Tub in October of last year. I have had a shell crack, yes they fixed it, I have had lights go out, yes they fixed it, I have lost handles, yes they fixed them, you starting to see a pattern. The biggest issue I have is heat! If the temperature is below 20 degrees Fahrenheit it loses heat fast and by fast I mean 1 to 2 degrees every 15 minutes. I have talked to my dealer and he says they can do nothing. Please be aware if you want a Hot Tub and are going to have it outside you will get 30 minutes maximum of Hot Tub time, then you get WARM time and then will be forced to get out because it gets downright cold! They have said it is an efficiency heater trying to be more green…I just want a heater that keeps my Hot Tub hot I will do anything for that!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as Expected Purchased and delivered July 2014. I am not a fan of the Cantabria. From the delivery process, which was unprofessional, to the end user experience this tub does not add up to all the hype about it being the top of the line model. I am not 100% convinced that other models of Caldera spas are any better. We have had issues with water quality, jets continually popping off or not rotating every time we use the tub, problems with the audio system, and even "programming/firmware" versions not being the latest. The diverter valves are hard to turn and the waterfalls continually drip water even if the valves are turned off. I have yet to find a seat in this large tub that I can call my favorite and I will be the first to admit that I should have wet tested this model before purchasing. I wish I could rate the entire experience of owning this tub better but I cannot as I'm truly disappointed.

Cantabria is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love Our Cantabria We love our Cantabria hot tub. Water care is so easy. The 5 different spa seats are wonderful to choose from. The lounge is perfect. We love the sequencer on the lounge. The lighting system is good. The sound system is great. I wish the fountains were controlled by their own pump so that you could turn them on without having any jets going. We never use the air jets because it is too forceful. Kind of wish the air jet pump had an adjustment on it so that you could reduce power of it. Some fine bubbles would be much better than the force of the full air pump. We would highly recommend this hot tub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hot Tub! We purchased this tub two years ago and couldn't be happier! After a long day a good soak feels great on the back and on the feet. Several jets target different muscles on different seats. The lounge chair has pre-programmed jet cycles which are quite powerful. Two waterfall jets add to aesthetics along with cycling lights of different colors. Best use was in the height of a very cold winter, but water temperature can be lowered for use in the summer so that it can be used year round . The attached cover is a plus and isn't too heavy to open or close with one hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cantabria Hot Tub Overall this is a very nice hot tub. It fits our family of 4 quite comfortably and is very relaxing. The lounger works just about all parts of the body and the programmed settings allow for a deeper massage for different parts of the body. The Bluetooth capability for music makes it very enjoyable. We love the lighting and the ease of maintenance on this hot tub. The only negative about this hot tub is the hand jet covers seem to pop off rather easily during use and very often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate Hot Tub for Entertaining Guests My husband and I purchased the Caldera Utopia Cantabria back in March 2014, and we're still using it numerous times per week. This is the ultimate hot tub for entertaining guests! It can comfortably seat 8 people, but we've managed to have up to 10 people in it at times. There are so many settings so based on your mood or needs, you can relax in a variety of different seats from the UltraMassage Lounge (best for taller people as shorter people tend to float out of this seat when the jets are on) to the EcstaSeat in the corner where you can relax after a long day of work (it has jets for your feet, back, palms, calves, and neck)! The larger jets can be rotated to control how much water pressure is used because sometimes you just want a gentle jet of water pulsing into your back and sometimes you want lots of jets so it's easy to adjust to exactly what you want. The lights are great for evenings. And the 2 waterfalls are a favorite feature for both adults and especially children (who love to splash around in the falls)! We also purchased the sound system upgrade so we can play music while relaxing in the spa - this was definitely a great add on and worth the extra expense because it's wireless so you can play music from your phone or computer right to the hot tub. With all the amazing aspects of this hot tub come a few words of advice: "normal" usage is 2 people per night for 10-15 minutes. If you are like us and you use the hot tub for an hour or more each time and you also plan to invite the neighbors or have hot tub parties, then you will need to use more chemicals than what the Spa Frog water care system can provide so you'll need to add a few extra teaspoons or tablespoons after each heavy use (4 people for an hour) and you'll actually have to add at least a tablespoon of chlorinating concentrate (or similar chemical) to keep your bromine/chlorine at proper levels or you'll find you'll be emptying and refilling your tub more often than you'd like. And you will also likely encounter the issue of over-foaming, which is caused when the jets are on high and detergents (whether shampoo or body wash or just leftover detergent in bathing suits) creates a ton of foam on top of the water. Kids love it, but it can become annoying so you may want to use a little defoamer to keep the bubbles down. Rinsing off both yourself and rinsing bathing suits on rinse cycle before entering the hot tub will also help keep the bubbles to a minimum. But it's well worth the effort to have this hot tub and it is one of the best purchases we have made! And if you have concerns about the energy efficiency of this model, we were shocked to find that our energy bills did not go up nearly as much as we thought they would - this is one very energy efficient model if it's properly maintained (yes, even in the winter - we enjoyed what we dubbed "snow tubbing" earlier this year). The entire tub is very well insulated, including the cover, which is made out of marine-grade materials, so as long as you cover the tub when it's not being used and keep the temperature constant, your energy consumption will be minimized. We had the electrician install the 50 amp and 20 amp breaker so we could run the jets and the heat pump at the same time. Finally, it is very easy and quick to empty the tub, clean it, and refill it. The reheating part may take up to one full day to get the water up to temperature in the winter, but overall, it takes only a couple of hours to slowly empty and clean the tub and then about 1.5 hours to fill an empty tub. In the end, we absolutely love our Cantabria hot tub and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering a larger hot tub that can accommodate many guests. Our only issue is trying to fend off friends and family who want to visit all the time (we believe just to use our hot tub)! haha

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the One to Get! This is a great a spa. After owning it for three months I could not think of getting anything smaller in size or features. The one thing to note is that if you're tall the lounger might not be a perfect fit. I'm 6'5" and the lounger is not quite where I'd like it to be. The jets in the spa are great. I have a had two previous back surgeries and purchased the spa to help with discomfort and lower back pain. This spa has been a huge help reducing pain levels and relaxing sore muscles. The spa is easy to operate and maintain. has great features, and if you like a lot of jets I don't know that I've seen a better spa out there... and I've looked a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Experience I have owned my Caldera Cantabria for 4 years now and have not experienced one problem. The tub is very comfortable and large enough for you and your friends to stretch out. I live in Reno which is very cold during the winter and I keep my spa at 101 degrees year around with very little difference on my electric bill. I use my tub daily and would highly recommend a Caldera Spa to anyone who is in the market for a Spa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent with minor quality issues Our Cantabria spa is probably the best investment we've ever made to our backyard - we use it daily and it works wonders. Unfortunately there is a quality issue with our EuroJets - after each session there are 1-6 laying in the bottom of the tub. The local dealer is going to have to glue them on with silicone the next time we drain it. Other than that it has been an awesome experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time owner LOVING it. Working through some kinks ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS HOT-TUB!!! I am working through some water issues. I will get there. Have a couple of issues with the heads to jest falling off repeatedly and one of my speakers won't come up. For a tub that costs this much I expect these things not to happen in first month. Don't get me wrong though I LOVE it. As long as I get these small issues resolved I would give this 5 stars all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from None better! We purchased the this model this Spring because of my husband's back injury and its therapeutic value. Having been in hotel hot tubs I was not real enthusiastic about it and felt that I would only give it a try to please my husband. I'm now a believer! Other hot tubs bubble hot water around you but the Caldera spa tub can actually do a very effective deep muscle massage. The lounger is extremely powerful and has several settings for a custom massage. We use it almost nightly for the last 5 months. We did enclose it in a gazebo, placed a spa bar inside, and bought tall candle pillars to light in the evening. It has a summer setting to save cost, and the chemical guidelines are located under the filter lid. I can not truly give the highest rating for energy efficiency, I do not know how much it costs to run as it is summer and we have our air conditioning on 24/7. I hate to say this but my husband was right. It is worth every dime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spa! Despite some startup software bugs, we are extremely happy with this spa. The issues were fixed under warranty and efficiently by the dealer. Our purchasing experience was pleasant at Home Escapes in Reston, VA. Rosanne patiently answered all of our questions and has kept in touch to ensure we are satisfied. Dave the owner has been great too. We purchased our tub in time to have it installed before Christmas. We have the tub installed on our patio, so we enjoy the stars and snowfall when we are tubbing. We love that every seat in this tub fits the both of us. While we didn't need a big tub, the size of the Cantabria comes in very handy when we have visitors. Care of the tub is easy with simple cartridge and filter changes plus the typical weekly shock and water testing. Based on our current experience, we will highly consider replacing the tub with another Caldera Spa when the time comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love our Caldera Spa!! Our entire family enjoys our Caldera Cantabria Spa! We enjoy it as a family, the kids have friends over and my wife and I have our time too! The variety of the seats and jet arrangements make it a treat to move between locations to make sure everything is covered! Maintenance and high water quality is simple! The cartridge chemical system and the large filter take only a few minutes each week. The water quality is the best we have experienced!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment ever. My wife and I bought this for our 44th wedding anniversary. This is the best investment we ever made. It is beyond words but just to say a few things: very relaxing, adding the audio feature was a great plus (we can listen to our favorite music while in the spa) and in the late evening, we can lay back and watch the stars as we get the warm water and gentle massaging from the spa water jets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed our nights We love our caldera cantabria hot tub it has changed our nights, instead of going out or watching TV we relax and soak in our tub and hit the bed with a great night sleep. We did a lot of research and looking before buying our hot tub and found that caldera was the tub for us no gimmicks like other hot tub company's like removable jet packs or tons of jets that are not needed. The cantabria has a lot of power if you want it or you can dial it down , as far as efficiency it doesn't cost us anything like what a pool would and we keep our temperature at 100° all winter and it stays there. There is plenty of room for people when we get company and every seat does something a little different for your body. The ridge on the floor for your feet was a nice touch and works well. The lighting in the tub is very adjustable if you want a lot of light or just a little and you can change the color. We have no cons with our hot tub everything performs as it is supposed to. Thanks for the great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love Our Cantabria! The Cantabria was a little more money that we wanted to spend but it was well worth it. Getting in this hot tub is an absolute treat every time. The jets make it feel like a massage. The different seats enable you to get the kinks out of every muscle in your body and relax. During the holidays when we had many guests, the abundant room in the hot tub was very welcome. I can't say enough good things about this model. The wireless music is an added bonus and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Cantabria Spa! I traded in my Geneva spa for something larger and got the Cantabria. It is as beautiful as it is functional. Everyone who sees it or gets in it wants one. I even have friends who text me to ask if they can be waiting in the spa when I get home. The spa also helps me to relax and solved my problem with not being able to fall asleep quickly. You will love this spa.

Cantabria is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our Cantabria As a first time spa owner, we shopped around for about 4 months. Cantabria was our favorite from the beginning and it has not disappointed for the most part. The only two cons I have with the Cantabria is that the Frog system doesn't work with this larger sized spa (kept trying it for a year). We have switched to the Monarch Water Care System and it seems to be working well. The second con is that the over-the-shoulder jets are useless. They seriously need to be manufactured better/improved on. In general, we love our spa and use it often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the room I am so greatful that our family of five picked this tub. We went back and forth between size and felt that this would fit us best. We were right. The first time using the tub we were able to have all of us in and had plenty of room to move around and didn't feel like we were sitting on top of each other. The jets are a great relief every night we sit in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Cantabria spa is Perfect Wow we love our Caldera Spa. Tons of jets that hit the entire body. Once you do the circuit you will feel like you just had a massage. It so great for the body. My fav seat is the lounger then the main seat that not only does your back and legs. it does your wrists. Very relaxing after a day on the computer. The bluetooth system is so easy to use. Your phone or any other bluetooth device is hooked up in secs. At night the lights set the mood and the waterfalls make it all come tougher. This was a great purchase. We checked out many of the top brands. We did dry and wet testing and Caldera was the clear winner. I'm looking forward to many years of nice, happy, relaxing nights in our new Caldera spa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from enjoying it We had been looking for a new spa for over a year, ours was fading (15 years old). We had seen many even put a deposit on one, then canceled as the deal was not just right. We met with Keith at Tradewind spas and were comfortable with his salesmanship (no high pressure) presented the facts, had us wet test the spa and made us a fair deal. The spa itself it quite enjoyable, the footwell jets are the best part, the sound system is also very nice as I used to use a portable radio. All in all this is a very good well made tub with nice well designed features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Time Hot Tub Owners We bought our Caldera Cantabria (2010 model) in September 2011 after having bought a new home. As we approach the 4 year anniversary of our purchase, and as first time hot tub owners, I would have to say we have been VERY pleased with this significant purchase. Our Cantabria has proven to be reliable over the course wildly varied weather conditions (scorching hot summers and cold/snowing winters). When we did have a problem with the circulation pump, it was replaced quick (and without cost) as part of the comprehensive warranty. At the end of the day (literally), we love finishing our long days with a glass (or two) of wine, while the hot tub pampers us and takes us away from our sometimes hectic daily lives. The best feedback I can give is this...I have NEVER regretted making the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Getaway at Home! My wife and I love our Cantabria hot tub! It is so relaxing and inviting after a stressful day, and we emerge from our soak feeling refreshed and renewed. We bought a floor model that had the sound system installed - and we are so glad we did. Before our purchase we were thinking the built-in bluetooth speakers would be a not so important add-on, but we use them every time to listen to our favorite local station playing blues and soul music! Add a couple of glasses of wine and we are at the Spa!! Nothing better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zinful place My family and I love our Cantabria hot tub. We are a family of 4 and we love it. My husband and I use it the most, my 9 year old uses it as a pool/tub basically for play and my 14 year old loves it for sore legs after soccer games. I am a runner and exercise a lot and use it for sore muscles as well as a place to relax all year round. We got it in the fall and used it through the winter. It was perfect in the spring and now that its hot summer, we use it as well either early in the morning or at night when the temps are cooler. It benefits you year round. I'm so glad we got the Cantabria vs a smaller one, because we can spread out and have other people over to use as well. The cleaning and upkeep of it is easy. Its my zin place after a stressful long day looking up at the stars in the sky is amazing. Watching the sky change in the warm water is so relaxing.

Over the years I have had several spas and the Cantabria is a far superior spa. Near effortless to maintain. Stays clean or weeks without much chemicals and have never had any water issues. The audio system is low quality. I wish the speakers were better and louder. To get like tooth to work sometimes need to cycle the power on the spa. Very powerful jets. I am a taller person, very good for lower back and feet, but very poor for upper back and neck. Wish it was better adjustable. Overall a good buy.
