      What we think

      The AquaRest Spas AR-300 is a high-quality budget spa, giving you all the therapeutic relaxation and wellness options of other higher-end models without costing that much.

      Installing the hot tub and daily maintenance is a breeze. The powerful, adjustable jets offer you and your partner a fenomenal, relaxing experience time and time again.

      In our opinion the AR-300 is definitely more than worth the money, you really get a great return in quality and comfort.

      What consumers say

      Most buyers are very pleased with the hot tub. They find it easy to move around when empty, fast heating and a perfect size for two people.

      The easy setup, durability and overall comfort of the spa also gets praised by customers. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, the jets are very powerful just as full sized hot tubs are.

      The overwhelming majority of customers recommend the AR-300 hot tub. A buyer who previously owned other hot tubs remarked, for the price and size, I don’t think you could ask for more.
