jetted tub

We have a regular tub at this time, we are getting some work done in our bathroom, and are thinking of getting a jetted tub. Any suggestions?? The contractor suggested to get more than 4 jets, cause anything less would not be worth it.
What is the diff. between drop in and skirted??
What should we look for

jetted tub

Drop in is surrounded by a tiled frame on all sides. Ones with an apron sit on the floor and have a finished front.
If this is a combo tub/shower, be aware that these tubs are around 19" high and require some high stepping to get in and out of. Some of them have jets that collect water in the recesses when you shower, causing a mold buildup. This is not generally an issue with a tub only setup.
