I visited this facility

I was very favorably impressed with this community. It is well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful a. All the residents I spoke with seemed happy to be there. In addition to the standard amenities, they offer many classes (Watermark University). That and the waterfront location are very appealing. I plan to become a resident.

Losing my husband has been very hard but being here with so many distractions, I have made a lot of friends. Everybody is very friendly, not only the employees but also the people that reside here.

The staff was good at The Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay. The rooms and apartments were very dated. I thought they were smaller, but they had a nice view. The dining area was adequate. They had plenty of activities like bingo, Wii bowling and billiards. It was not where I want to be, but I would recommend it.

I joined The Fountains because with my house I had to go out for all the activities and here it’s all under one roof.

The Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay is a beautiful community on the water - they have such an amazing activities program and my father enjoys all that there is to do there! The staff is caring and professional and even though it is large they made my father feel right at home and eased his apprehension when he moved in.

Dad stays at The Fountains. The staff is very good and accommodating. They have a movie theater on weekends, two nights they have entertainment, big shows, music that comes in during the week, there’s a lot of clubs that people can join, they play cards, and Wii bowling is also available. They have a lot of outings, day trips, and transportation to doctor’s appointments. Dad is in a studio apartment. He doesn’t cook, but it does have cooking facilities, a small size refrigerator, and a bathroom. You go in the lobby and there are sofas and chairs, a piano, and floral arrangements; it’s very homey. I would recommend this to anybody looking for this type of facility.

I liked The Fountains very much. It was secure and it was within my budget. I like the rooms very much; they were roomy and clean. It was something I think I would be comfortable with. The most activities I was interested in were transportation, traveling. I think they had a mahjong club. They could improve on the cost; it was a little bit pricey.

My wife and I are going to move into The Fountains by the end of this month. It is an independent living facility. The facility looks very good to us. They have a lot of activities to choose from. They also offer services like laundry and housekeeping jobs.

The Fountains is one of the best so far. We were there last January for a birthday party for one of our friends who lives there. The place is clean and the staff was nice.

This facility is always clean and the residents love all the planned parties, games, talks and other activities that the staff provide. The staff are friendly and always know the names of the residents in their community I love their interaction with the residents. Jennifer N. is a great asset to the Fountains community.
