I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
My father is in an apartment complex called El Dorado of Sun City. It doesn't have assisted living. It's just basically a senior apartment. They have nurses on duty who can make decisions. For example, he has fallen a couple of times. He has one of those medical guardian buttons and pushes that and then the people from the apartment complex will come up and help him. They have a lot going on. They have book clubs, card groups, and programs like Christmas programs, but he doesn't participate in a lot of that. He was there with my mother, but she passed away about 18 months ago. He was more independent before she passed, but now he's less independent. All three meals are available every day, but with a 30 meal ticket a resident can chose which meals they would like. Everybody comes down with a walker, but they put them away in another room so you don't see any of that while you're eating. You order off a menu like a restaurant and they have a basic menu as well as daily specials. The wait staff is very good. He's got a small kitchen with regular sized appliances. It's supposed to be like a 2-bedroom, but whoever had it before made the second bedroom into a dining room, so it's a 1-bedroom with a bath in it and then it has a little living room and then next to it is the dining area. He has a bookcase and a table in there and then there's another bathroom off of that dining area. It's a nice sized apartment and the building. The staff is very good. The facility is very nice and large and has just been remodeled. The only drawback is you don't want to be three miles from the dining room where you have to walk. There's only one dining room and it's big, but some of the people have to walk quite far to get there. When my father got there you had to buy in, but about six months after that, they allowed people to rent, and it's going to be a problem when we go to sell. He pays $2,100 a month for the meals and activities, and they have vans that take residents to the doctor or to the grocery store.

I would give this place a zero if it were possible. You need to be aware that when your parents/family member purchases an apartment in the El Dorado, eventually an heir will be on the hook for the outrageous HOA fees until the apartment is resold. For many families, that is well over $1000. If you notice, there are consistently many apartments for sale at a given time. They will be aggressive with you until you enter a contract with them, but then it is too late and they do not want to hear from you again!!!! . Please do your research when buying there.

I visited this facility
My mom will be moving at El Dorado of Sun City. We chose this place because their amenities were very good. The cost was very acceptable. Their rooms were of adequate size and really nice. The buildings are nice, and everything is kept clean. They have a bus that takes the residents to doctor's appointments, churches, mall, pharmacies, or wherever. They also organize games, and they have a library.
