The Pacifica Senior Living Oceanside was the second choice of my parents. They liked it a lot, the people were friendly, we got to go into the apartment, and it was impressive. We liked it, and I'd probably would've picked that one. The room is very nice, their walk-in shower was nice because there was no anything you could stumble on to get into the shower. It was a little dark inside for my parents, because they have some dark wood beams that go across the ceilings, but I myself liked it. The staff was great, we went up to the front desk, they took our temperatures and they took us around the outside, they obviously didn't want people walking through the facility with everything going on, but they got us inside the apartment, we got to look at it, they explained everything to us, and kind of gave us a tour around the building.

Pacifica Senior Living Oceanside had a crisper atmosphere than the others. It's fresh, new, and open, and the people seemed livelier. It's a bit more expensive, but they have large enough rooms. They don't have independent living there, but it was very nice and very picturesque on the outside. The dining area was great. It was like being in a nice restaurant, and it was very comfortable. The food was excellent. They had an exercise room, a library, a theater, and meeting rooms.

Pacifica Senior Living Oceanside was a brand-new facility. The building and the dining area were very nice. It's in a really nice location, but they had fewer outdoor areas that people can enjoy like courtyards and benches. The rooms were nicely laid out for the square footage and they're modern, but I wish they had slightly larger spaces. The facility overall was very nice and very clean, and it was like living in a higher end hotel. They were more geared towards the assisted part, and it felt a little bit more clinical. Their staff wasn't as established with the residents, but overall they were very good and extremely professional, and the front desk staff was very nice and very inviting. I felt very comfortable. My mother is planning on moving in there. Everybody was very friendly.

Provider Response

Michael, we strive for 100% satisfaction, and it is great to see you and your mother had such a positive experience. We always strive to provide top quality service to everyone, and are pleased to hear this! Let us know if there is anything we can do for you and your family in the meantime. We sincerely thank you for the positive review, and look forward to seeing you again soon!
