Lay-Z-Spa 8 Person Review

There are a lot of inflatable hot tubs available on the market but it is vital to find one that suits yours needs. Many inflatable hot tubs are cheap and cheerful, and many are happy for this, but there are some who want that little bit more which is why the Bestway Lay Z Spa Monaco is a great choice.

The Need to Know

Temp (℃)
Air Jets
Width (cm)

This inflatable hot tub is about as close as you can get to the real deal and because of this the price is a little higher than the average inflatable hot tub.

However, this is still an excellent value for money product with a high quality which is why customers will be extremely happy for what they get for their money. The LCD control panel is a sign that this is not an ordinary inflatable hot tub as it gives it that more expensive feel and look. This is a hot tub that looks every inch the part and it will be a welcome addition to any home.

When filled with water the hot tub weighs just short of 2,000Kg and it stands 69 cm tall and 201cm wide making it large enough for 8 people. Bestway have worked hard to get this model right, listening to feedback from previous models.


This is a lot quieter than other models as it is fitted with a quieter pump and it also has easy to hold carry handle so that the hot tub is easily moved around. A foam bottom has also been added to this model, giving that extra bit of comfort all round.

This 8 person hot tub can be heated to a temperature of 40C which is enough for most users but there may be some who like it a little hotter, and there are some on the market that get that little bit more warmth.

Not a fan of the blue? You can also get this jacuzzi in grey here.

So if you are after a well made, top quality looking hot tub the Lay Z Spa Monaco is right for you but if you like something that’s is warmer to help soak away your troubles and strains then it may be worth looking at another model.

    Really disappointed with our Lay-z-spa ‘Monaco’, which we purchased May 2016. We had a really good summer last year using recommended chemicals and cleaning regularly, packing it away for the winter and only refilling it again in April. Since we have started to use it again this year, we have had nothing but problems. The Pump has become noisy and you can’t have a conversation over the noise, the seams of the pool body have started leaking and loose pressure within hours. Although we understand that this a more economical purchase than a ‘Proper’ hot tub, we had hoped to have more that a few months use out of it. If you want value for money don’t waste you time with one of these!
