Paradise Village was good. It was more like individual apartments, and they have a communal kitchen. The rooms were clean. They're really friendly and the complimentary lunch was fine. They have a library, a media center to watch movies, a gym with little treadmills, a courtyard, and patio area, so they have indoor and outdoor amenities. The staff was very cordial and courteous. The place was very well-done. It's a hotel that has been converted into assisted living.

My father-in-law has been in Paradise Village for four months now. My overall impression of it is not very good. The patio is good, but the furniture is old. The dining room is not very clean. The smell is not good. They need more assistance in cleaning the place. The nurses are good, but for their services, it is too expensive. Also, at the time I visited, I didn't see any activities.

Provider Response

Paradise Village is a good place to live, and an excellent facility. It's comfortable, a nice family, and we're pretty much satisfied. The staff is great, friendly, and professional. However, it's expensive.

Paradise Village gave us a lovely dinner. It was very well done. However, this was too large for me. It was overpowering. They showed me an apartment, which I didn't like. It was too bad because I met very nice people there. They had thousands, it seemed, of programs, but what I wanted was not there. They did have a swimming pool, but I didn't like their pool either because it was inside. Paradise Village was very depressing. They used dark colors, which was very unappealing to me. I don't like that. The reception area was overbearing. It was the feeling I got when I walked in there, it was this massive feeling and dark colors. There was no appeal to me at all. It wasn't the people's fault though because they were very friendly, and they gave me a beautiful presentation.

Provider Response

Hi Eileen, I'm glad to hear you had a lovely dinning experienced and enjoyed the friendliness of our staff. Unfortunately our Resort-Style community may not be a perfect fit for everyone, however we do appreciate your feedback and I hope you find what you're looking for.

Paradise Village has tons of amenities like a library, an indoor pool, a gym, a snack room, and a couple of open community rooms. There is an activities director who is very much engaged. There is also a bus that takes the residents to shopping centers, supermarkets, and outings. It has a putting green, too. There were 2 restaurants -- one in the independent living side and one in the assisted living side.

Paradise Village is our top place. You don't have to buy into it, and you can pay rent. They had a nice swimming pool, nice gym, and plenty of places to walk around. The lady who took us around was very nice. The dining area looked nice. It had a little coffee area with the main dining area adjacent to it.

Paradise Village was the best place that we saw. They had nice rooms, and everything was top notch. If we had the money, Dad would have went there. They had an indoor pool, gym, theater, library, and a game room.

I visited Paradise Village. They have a chef, and the meals are excellent. They also have a pool and offer recreational activities in their pool. They also have an outside putting range. They seem to be very happy there. They have a gym, and offer music and dance. I saw people dancing there.

Provider Response

Thank you for your kind words, Louis! We'd love for you to come back and dance with us soon!

I am in Paradise Village now. It's very spacious and comfortable. There's room for all my furniture and collections. I moved here partially because of that. They give us a budget to eat and the rest we provide ourselves. The food is OK and tastes like restaurant food. They have an indoor, saltwater pool that's good for arthritic exercises and a gym as well. I was in assisted living, but I am now in independent living.

Paradise Village was a great, well-established community. They just didn't have anything available in the family suites. The staff was friendly and had a lot going on, so sometimes it's tough for them to get back to you. I've had delays in getting communications back when I was trying to talk to them. But besides that, they were very good.

Paradise Village is the one we chose. It was great and we loved it. Everything was really good. It’s a great facility: the activities, the atmosphere, and the friendliness of the people. There are too many activities to list, but most of the activities are nice. They have a movie theatre, a swimming pool, and a workout facility. The food is great

The food is good at Paradise Village, and the people are nice. They have some water exercises, which I need badly, and aerobics exercises, too. I am taking advantage of all their activities. I have a spacious, quiet one-bedroom apartment with nice, big windows, good lighting, and high ceilings. The older staff is good but the younger staff is pretty inexperienced.

Paradise Village seemed very nice, it had nice apartments, and nice residents. It’s one of the ones they will consider. There seemed to be a lot of choices about what to do, where to go, and things you could learn.

Paradise Village is large and beautiful. It had everything you could ask for, but it was a little too big. If given a chance, I would recommend this facility because it is very nice. They have exercise rooms, games, outings, and programs. They also have a movie theater. They have an in-house doctor. The staff is wonderful. The rooms were nice.

Paradise Village was gorgeous, very big, and catered to people very well. They didn't have any vacancies and were still building their memory care facility. I needed to see what kind of memory care was going to be provided; however, they might not have the building completed and operational by the time my mother needs it. It was just too much of a gamble. I did love it, though. The facility was clean. The employees were delightful. I know somebody who works there. It was wonderful. They had multiple dining areas and a four-page ala carte menu if you don’t like what they’re serving on any given day. The chef came out to talk to me and assured me he would fix whatever my mother wanted to eat even if it wasn’t on the menu.

We went to Paradise Village. It was beautiful inside. The meals were great. We stayed overnight, and there just happened to be a party celebrating something in a room, so we met many fantastic people. They were so nice to us. However, you couldn’t have wine in the dining room. We just like wine with dinner, so, for us, I think that would be a big negative about that place. Also, we didn’t like National City. It didn’t seem like there were any shopping centers or nice restaurants around. The facility was beautiful, and the people were very nice. For our needs, I would give it one star, but for someone who doesn’t care about wine with dinner and not going out, it would be nice enough for them. Also, it only had an indoor pool; it didn’t have an outdoor swimming pool.

Paradise Village is beautiful. It has a ton of amenities, and it is reasonably priced. They have a gym, a salon, and a heated indoor swimming pool. They have a church service which is a Catholic Mass on Sundays. It has a theater and a restaurant in addition to the resident's dining area.

I just thought Paradise Village was wonderful. It is extremely well-appointed and had wonderful facilities. I talked to a lot of the residents, and they were whole-heartedly in praise of many facets to the place. The rooms look good, and it was a good value. Another thing that I have since found out is that a number of people that we know have been residents there and give it a really high mark. The person that was assigned to my sister and I think to another couple of people, and they were very informative and extremely pleasant. I was very pleased with it, and the residents seemed very happy.

Paradise Village was beautiful, and I liked it a lot. The staff were very accommodating. If it worked for me and I needed it, I would consider it. It was set up really nice. It's got an indoor pool and a restaurant. We did have lunch there, and it was very good, but the location was really the downside of it.

The staff of Paradise Village Retirement Community was very nice and very helpful, and they gave us a tour. The rooms were big and very clean. We liked it. We did not eat there, but the dining area was big and fine. I did not see any recreational activities, but I think their residents were happy.

I visited Paradise Village, and I thought they were a little expensive. But they had rooms that were nice although their studio didn't have a balcony. If you went to a studio, you have only a certain amount of food credit a month. That is all they give you. They have plenty of activities though. The community is very good, and I liked it. It will be very good for a person that is a little bit wealthier than I am. It is a very good community, but I can't afford it.

I really liked Paradise Village, and if my father-in-law gets worse, that’s the place that I would chose for him. It was all inclusive; they had even a bank there. They had a van that would take them to the grocery stores and activities, so it was a gorgeous place. The rooms were of good size and clean. The price was reasonable. The grounds were very nice; everything was very tidy and well-groomed. The staff was very professional and helpful. I met these guys, and they were very accommodating. There was a place where they were playing poker or blackjack which I thought was very entertaining. They had a gym and a swimming pool, and there were people working out. It was really beautiful.

Paradise Village is probably the nicest-looking place we had seen. It’s large, it’s new, and it looks more upscale to me. They have a huge swimming pool, and the apartments are lovely, lovely, lovely. They’re spacious enough, just beautiful. A young gentleman showed us around. The staff has been very friendly and very helpful.

My mom has been in assisted living now for a month and a half. It's called Paradise Village. So far, my mom is very happy there. People working there are good. The facility is about a block from the hospital if needed. They have everything that is needed within walking distance. Food there is great so far. I have no problems with it. Their rooms are a little bit small though.

I wasn’t happy with my visit at Paradise and it didn’t impress me. It was too big and exuberant. I didn’t care for the place at all. They have a lot of activities for the residents. It was expensive and the staff that took me on the tour was more like a salesman. It didn’t have a homey feel for me.

My husband and I completely enjoyed our recent stay at Paradise Village. Our room was beautifully decorated; in fact, the entire community exceeded my expectations. From the rooms, lobby areas, grounds, Wellness Center, theater, and restaurants went above and beyond any retirement facility I have ever seen. Everything was beautiful and elegant. The residents and their guests appeared happy and active and the central Plaza building had a wonderful liveliness to it. The staff were friendly and helpful - especially the dining team, who served us several fantastic meals. I would heartily recommend taking a look at the community.

We visited the Paradise Village assisted living facility in National City, near San Diego, CA as a place for our grandmother to live. As she has many friends in the region and has always liked the South Bay area, it seemed logical to visit the facility. The building resembles a resort community, with all the style and comfort of a secure gated community, but with a kind of exotic décor. Our grandmother has embraced vegetarianism, so we were thrilled to find so many menu options that catered to this lifestyle. She loves to swim, and the pool and spa were as nice as any we've seen at any hotel. The hot tub therapy includes a salon and the fitness classes could be tailored to fit her needs, which we really liked. While she was ambulatory, she was a regular member of the local YWCA. The wellness center would provide a lot of convenience for her. She really liked the theater and pointed out that many of her guests would enjoy the putting green. The Plaza area included a wonderful open atrium with restaurant dining and an outdoor patio. There is also a coffee shop and a library, which we know our grandmother will really enjoy, as she is an avid reader. Recreational activities were plentiful with tennis courts, walking paths, billiards, an art studio and many other cultural and social events. The chapel features a variety of religious activities and covers all faiths. This facility has everything that a senior needs in a retirement facility and more. Very well designed and thought out, with wonderful, caring staff.

The workers that we ran into at Paradise Village were all very nice. The place is really clean, bright, and cheerful. The staff member who assisted us during the tour took us through everything and we saw everything. The people we ran into were awesome, and Rhonda, the one who runs the community, is phenomenal. They have activities, a woodshop, a swimming pool, rec room, fitness room, and craft room. They also have walking paths that are marked every quarter mile or half mile; it's really nice.

I visited Paradise Village. It has all the amenities I'm looking for, and it has a lot of programs for health and wellness. The staff is very professional, very knowledgeable, and very helpful. The atmosphere was very good, and it seemed like everybody was enjoying themselves, and was happy. It looked like it was really nice. We had lunch there and the food was good. The dining area was large, well set up, the staff was professional, there was a wide choice of items on the menu, and it met our dietary requirements. There were a lot of swimming and fitness classes.

We moved into Paradise Village, it's absolutely wonderful, and we love it here. They have plenty of things to do, places to go, and it's a wonderful atmosphere. The food is actually restaurant style, not in a line, and I can't say enough good about it, the staff is hard working and people-friendly, and if you meet one in the hallway, they always smile and say hello. However, they usually take 2 or 3 days to respond to a service call if it's not critical, that's the worst thing I heard here. They have a list every day of about 12 to 14 activities, from church, shopping centers, theaters, and just about anything, they do it. They have a wonderful exercise room with a tremendous planned classes, and they have a huge semi-olympic pool, and a very large spa. I have a 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartment with a full kitchen, it's not cheap, but it's not in the expensive side either. It's a 7th-day Adventist community, they do not have shellfish, alcohol, and pork, but they have home made food to die for.

I went to Paradise Village. It was absolutely gorgeous and lovely, but it was not what I needed. I thought it was great for people who were mobile and looking for a place to retire but not for any kind of care. It was set up like an apartment building with lovely rooms. However, they didn't have a nurse's station nor monitors in the room. They had amazing activities every day and a wonderful cafeteria.

My father lives in Paradise Village, and I'm there all the time. It was not expensive. The food was very good, and it was restaurant type and a little bit of the gourmet side. They have cleaning service once a week, they have a concierge to pick up dry cleaning, and they have activities all day long. They have a pool, tennis court, and basketball courts. They go on off campus trips like shopping trips, and they give you rides to your doctor's appointments. They have a fitness center with a physical therapist and personal trainers. The residents and the people that work there seemed to be happy all the time.

Paradise Village is a very nice place, but it's just not for me. I can't use a lot of the facilities here nor eat the food they cook. I had to go up and down a lot to check my mail and go from one place to another because I'm in an electric wheelchair. They have a lot of activities here, but I do not do them. My room is excellent. For many people, this place is good, and I would recommend it. The staff is very good, friendly, attentive, and very willing to assist.

At Paradise Village, you have a significantly less down payment with them. They only require $2,000 deposit, and then after you've decided that you will move in, they will ask for $10,000 more and you can get it all back after two years. After that, you possibly lose the $10,000. You lose the $2,000 after two years. So this is one of the least expensive places to go. They have nice units, a beautiful indoor pool, exercise equipment, and so it is a nice place. It is a beautiful building. They have a very beautiful entry with a big fountain and a lovely indoor swimming pool. Actually, there is a bank that is attached to the building, so it is very convenient for banking. Then, they have a very nice dining room that is on the main floor. It is only a three-story building, so it is not a high-rise. They have selections every day, and they provide you two meals. One of those is a continental breakfast, and the other is dinner. We have eaten there three or four times, and it was good food. They have a beautiful, big theater that seats about 200 people, and they have entertainment coming in. Recently, they had a group of dancers come in, and last Sunday, they had a special guest speaker on memory care, and they have a lot of daily activities. They do things in the pool and things like dance lessons, card games, and all kinds of different activities. Also, occasionally, they will gather those people who are interested, and take them to a theater or something that is in the San Diego area.

Paradise Village is an excellent facility, but it's just too small for us because we do have a lot of things. They have good people and they do have activities like tours or field trips. The staff who accommodated us was very nice. We had free dinner and the food was very good. I can recommend this to other people who would want to see the place.
