I visited this facility

We went to the Palace Renaissance, and it was nice. The décor wasn't modern; it was more renaissance-type with a lot of wood. The main problem we had there was the cost, which was about $2,000 more than any other residence. That was one of the reasons why we didn't consider it.

The Palace's common areas were very nice and it felt like being in a five-star hotel. It's a very large facility with very nice amenities. To some degree, I think it's more than what I really need. It's very high-end. The rooms were very nice, and the staff seemed very pleasant as well.

The Palace Renaissance is awesome. Just like the name suggests, everything looks like a palace, and it is quite warm and welcoming. The residents were treated really exceptionally well. I’ve spoken to a few of them, and they are happy. It’s a nice place for senior people to spend their last days. The food is great. They have really nice activities and celebrations that residents get involved in. The best facility I’ve seen.

The Palace was very nice, but kind of expensive. The facility was very nice, the food was pretty good, and both the residents and the people who work there seemed very nice. They have different workshops and bingo, and my mom told me about Wii Bowling. My parents used to be bowlers, so that was interesting. People get together to play cards. It sounded like there should be a lot of stuff to do. We liked the one-bedroom better than the two-bedroom because it was more open and every room was bigger.

Palace Renaissance was very nice and clean. People were walking unsupervised, which was one of the reasons why we are not going to go there. Some people look lost -- they didn’t know where their room was or what floor they were on. The place was nice and seemed like it was looked after well. The rooms looked nice. The lady that took care of us was very nice and knowledgeable, but it’s a little bit expensive. I saw they were playing bingo in one room, and I think there was some physical therapy going on.

It was nice, but it is not geared to patients with Alzheimer's. They had to go down the elevator to the place where they eat, and they didn't seem very safe. If you had an Alzheimer's patient, you had to have two to four, but no more than that for each staff member. What I saw there was they had one person looking at quite a bit of them. Palace Renaissance was not bad -- it was just not geared to our needs. The rooms were nice and big. They did have a nurse's station, and it seemed clean and open.

We choose The Palace Renaissance because my father really likes it out of all the communities that he's seen. It is smaller and only has 200 younger people. My father is not wheelchair bound and wants to do the activities with other people that are walking and active, and he is very happy. The food is excellent. The staff is very nice and very helpful. They have plenty of activities going on. The people are happy. They are smiling, and they enjoy it. It is very clean and very elegant, and it offers a cruise ship type of lifestyle for the residents. They have live entertainment many hours everyday.

My brother is at Palace. It is a good location, and all the amenities that he needs are there. It is very close to my home, so it is easy to visit him. They do have the full service, and they have everything there that accommodates his needs. Everything is perfect. I am very pleased with everything.

The staff was really helpful at Palace Renaissance. The dining room and the lobby were lovely and elegant, but the rooms where the people lived were disappointing. It doesn't feel homey at all to me. It feels like I'm in a hotel or some place. The food was outstanding. They had some great entertainment after some of the dinners they have had. They would have happy hour, and it looked like people trying to have fun, but it just didn't look entertaining to me at all. I wouldn't recommend them as it is too expensive,` and I don't think they get what they pay for. The apartments were just unacceptable to me.

I was told this was the best facility in town. DO NOT PUT ANYBODY YOU CARE FOR IN THIS FACILITY UNLESS IN ADDITION TO THE PRICEY ROOM AND BOARD, YOU CAN AFFORD PRIVATE DUTY CARE 24/7 ! They will neglect to tell you this when you sign up but trust me it is the only way to ensure that your loved one does not pass before their time and has a decent quality of life. My mother went in a vibrant active woman with cognitive disabilities and two months after was in diapers, wheelchair bound and unable to feed herself. Doctors overmedicate to make it easier for staff to manage residents. Happy to say that 3 weeks after leaving The Palace my mother is back to where she was before entering the facility. They will tell you that they pride themselves on personal care and attention to detail but it is all smoke and screens. You will find your loved one wearing somebody elses clothes, slumped over in a wheelchair before you know it.

Palace At Kendall got excellent food. It's a very well attended facility as far as I can tell. The rooms are spacious and the dining room is great. The staff were helpful and the director seemed friendly.

We found The Palace through the Internet and my mother-in-law stayed there. The staff were helpful and wonderful. The food was very good. She was in a shared room with a roommate. They had a lot of activities like music time, book club, bingo, arts and crafts, etc. They also brought the residents to the beach. And there were Sunday activities where family and friends brought food, beverages and even beer. The place is just wonderful.

A family member has lived at the The Palace for several years. We are demanding and still very pleased. This is as good as Assisted Living gets in South Florida. The decision is a no brainer if you can afford it.

I visited this facility

While the facilities themselves seemed nice and visually appealing, the staff seemed terribly rude. Every time someone came up to ask the front desk something, they seemed bothered, as if information wasn't a part of their job and they were being interrupted. I experienced their rudeness as an applicant and as someone looking for my aunt's next home. I couldn't imagine her having to live with such unassisting employees.

We visited The Palace Royale while in Miami looking at assisted facilities for my friend's mother. We liked the outer exterior, which appeared very well maintained. The grounds were nicely landscaped, with pretty walkways, seating areas and gardens.

We did not have an appointment, yet the staff was very accommodating and took us on a full tour.

This facility had ample communal rooms for a variety of activities, from reading in the library, to card games, physical exercise, crafting and special events and gatherings.

The food we saw looked and smelled delicious. The menus all had healthy food options for all kinds of diets. Healthy snacks are offered all day and into the evening, as well as whenever residents request them.

The outside activities feature many interesting cultural events in Miami, from fine dining to music and art.

This facility can accommodate a variety of ambulation levels and as a resident's needs change, care can be shifted as necessary.

The private living spaces were quite nice and beautifully decorated with lots of fresh air and light. All units were well designed and efficient.

This is a well-designed living environment for seniors that includes everything they need. The staff seemed to enjoy their jobs and were thoughtful, kind and helpful.

I've just placed my mother in this facility and couldn't be happier. The housing is beautiful and well kept. The staff is top notch. Managers are excellent and have addressed any of my concerns promptly and professionally.The activities provided are unique and stimulating for the residents.My mother doesn't like it ...... she LOVES it.! After almost three years of taking care of Mom we realized it was beyond our capabilities . The decision was extremely difficult, but now we have our lives back and my mother is enjoying a whole new phase of her life.

I am thinking of moving in at some point. I also visited a couple of friends living there now. They have a lot of things going on. I also have had lunch and gone to a couple of partys.

I went to visit a friend of my mom at The Palace Group Senior Living center, and although the space has many great attributes I believe is still has a lot to be desired. The center is very big with a large activities and entertainment area which opens to a small garden. I saw many seniors in this area either watching TV, cards or simple having conversations. The staff is very professional and friendly. The only concern is that in my opinion the center looked and felt too much like a hospital instead of a living space. The rooms looked too much like hospital rooms. The center does not smell fresh and clean, but sterile and of strong medicine mixed with bleach. All the decoration is based on plastic plants and very floral wallpapers and muted colors. I know that a senior living center requires to have a lot of medical equipment due to the nature of their clients, but many other clients are just there due to old age and I'm sure would love to feel like they are in a warm home instead of in a hospital. It would be good for their spirit as well as their energy levels.

The Palace Senior Living Group is a very good assisted living facility. They offer several different services for varying needs of assisted living. My grandmother lived in the Palace Renaissance for a couple of years. It provides a lot of activities for its residents and encourages the residents to become social. They do this by bringing in outside entertainment: magicians, bands, etc. My family and I even brought our dog to the residency as a therapy dog. Also, they bring in a lot of high school students for talent shows. By working with the community, it allows the residents to feel less constrained. Their dining hall is also a very sociable. It allows the residents to create bonds and friendships. The Palace also has activities that encourage the residents' families to visit. They have free ice cream at on certain days at certain times. They also have several events for different holidays for families to attend.

The Palace Kendall has a wonderful assisted living facility. Whenever I go to visit my grandmother, I am always surprised by how well maintained the property and building is; everything is so neat and tidy. I also like the fact that there is a gate guard monitoring visitors. Her apartment itself is simply gorgeous, and she says she can't imagine herself living anywhere else. The facility throws many parties and other festivities for the residents, which my grandmother really seems to look forward to and enjoy. She also has access to gardens, a cafe bar, a wellness center, and other amenities. The CNA's are all seem very competent and kind, encouraging my grandmother to be as independent as she can be while understanding her physical limitations.
