I have already moved into Sky Active Desoto Beach Club two weeks ago. I chose it because my mother had been here for about 3 1/2 years, and I already knew the facility, so that's why I moved here. It was absolutely flawless and the community is a beautiful place. Everyone here is so delightful. I could not have been treated more welcome and treated better. Everything has just gone flawlessly, it's a great place. I love the apartment, they clean the room once a week. It's just wonderful here. The staff was more than accommodating. They're just wonderful. The dining area is incredible, and well set up. The chef is outstanding. The food is good, and I have no complaints whatsoever. I don't do any of the activities yet, but I will. I've been up to the library, sat up there, and read books. But they have activities all day long.

We looked here. It was a very nice visit. Katie was very nice. The dining area looked welcoming. I saw the pool, which was very nice, and the game room and some exercise equipment. When I walked into the outside entrance area, it could have been cleaned up a bit.

I did a tour here. The rooms that they showed me that were available to be seen were much bigger. It would be a better transition for people coming from apartments like my parents would be coming in from a two-bedroom apartment. So, for them, it would be a better transition because it was a much bigger apartment style. It was like being in the apartment. They had like a little kitchenette, but they don't have stoves or anything, because they said it's a fire risk or whatever. I think you can get your own microwave or something like that if you wanted to bring that in. But a lot of them had a little kitchenette, a sink, and a little refrigerator. The staff who showed me around was great.

I thought the people here were good listeners and they were enthusiastic and honest. Those are important things there. They offer lots of activities and the units were clean. We ate lunch there and it was very good. The nice thing about it is you were seated at the table and people waited on you. They bring the food and it was well prepared. You get bussed out into town if you have to go to a doctor or you have to go to some special event. They have a lot of events and they take you places outside, so you're not stuck in there. I think the people that run it are just so helpful. It's just a little far, that's the only thing.

We moved my sister here. Upon entering, the staff greeted us. The staff understood what I was going to need. The place was immaculate. There were a lot of people passing by that said hello. They were very cheerful, and they wanted to know who would be living with them. It was comforting for my sister. It's an active community for an individual who happens to be an active person. We talked about the prices and came to an understanding pretty quickly. They get "three hots and a cot" (if you will). Their amenities and activities are pretty significant. They have rooms there for arts and crafts, a library, a movie area, a card area, and a beauty parlor. We saw groups of people joining in with the activities. There were people sitting, talking, and enjoying their evening after dinner. If you want to join and participate, it's all over the place. They have bulletin boards of things for an individual to do every day. They have breakfast scheduled from 7:30 to 8:30. The room is a 400 square foot studio room. It was large and bright. They have a porch on the outside. During better weather, she can open the door and just sit outside and watch the trees. I was there a couple of times to help my sister, and I was always greeted by the staff. I just love it there. It's wonderful. I met the chef, and that was really nice. I had dinner there. It was definitely a senior person's meal. I had two sandwiches with a bowl of soup; it was good. It was a nice building. They're going to renovate the floors. They have rugs, so they're going to take those out and rebuild it better.

I toured here. I like the apartments very much. I like the view, and I liked that it had a pool. The lady who gave me the tour, I was supposed to see if she had a floor plan that fit my needs, and if so, that would probably be the place I would choose. She has not called me back, so maybe she couldn't find the right floor plan. She was excellent, it was an excellent tour. I think she was the lead person to do tours. The problem of all of these places I see is if the bedroom is large, the living area is too small. If the living area is large, the bedroom's too small. So, that's the problem I have with all these places. I had lunch with the lady. The food was good. It was a nice size dining area, quite a few tables, and it was a nice area. The whole place was very nice. I liked it very much. The amenities, it has a pool, and that's very important for me. I have a pool in my home right now, and I want to make sure those places have pools. They had quite a few activities. I think that of all the places I visited, that was my first choice so far.

Desoto Beach Club has been wonderful. The residents seem to be very friendly. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. I look forward to moving in there and taking advantage of all their accommodations. They have three meals a day, free housekeeping once a week, and I get my bed changed once a week. They do have entertainment, and bus transportation if I need it. So far, so good. I'm very impressed. There was a little problem with the parking for the handicapped, but they're supposed to be improving that. The beauty shop is there, I saw it. However, it wasn't occupied at the time. But I know where it is and how to get there, and it is on-premises. They do have a library. The only thing I hesitate about is the parking, but they said that they were about to redo one of the parking lots and accommodate more handicapped parking. The dining area seemed to be very good. It was clean, and it was set up, ready to go. We were there yesterday, they were getting ready for lunch at noon, and it was very well set up.

The tour at Desoto Beach Club was informative, and I would hope my friend would be able to go and live there. It's wonderful, clean, there's a lot to do, and the staff was very nice. But if you need assisted living, I'm not sure that they have assisted living there. The rooms were pleasant. I would live there, they were big enough without being too overwhelming, they were clean, and they were just beautiful. I met the chef, and everyone said the food was excellent.

I have moved into Desoto Beach Club. It's like family. My apartment is wonderful. Their amenities are tremendous. They have a heated, full-size swimming pool for exercise, which is good for you, they got in-house physical therapy, and they got a nice dining room. It's just beautiful. The menus are pretty good. They have a lot of choices.

My dad moved into Desoto Beach Club. I have visited him multiple times and so far the experience has been positive; it's very good. They were shut down as far as the activities when he first went in. Because I'm his caretaker I was able to go in. Of course they had protocols before you go in like taking your temperature and so on, and I'm only allowed to see my dad. As far as the activities, from what I understand, they have just recently opened up to a few people, but it's not full blown, and they're very cautious. It's been great. The staff has been very accommodating, they've been very informative, and are pleasant to be around. The conversations I've had and the walk in process has been very good. From what I have seen, the facility is very clean and nice.

Desoto Beach Club seems like a really clean community and I would lean toward them. There wasn't much going on since we visited during lunch time, but it seemed like everybody was interacting with each other. It seemed very nice. The dining hall seemed clean and nice.

Desoto Beach Club: I have resided here since 4/18. I have a one bedroom apartment looking out on a wooded area which I love considering I am a country gal. Am enjoying my life here as it is a friendly, congenial and active facility. The staff is friendly, helpful and always ready and willing to help in any way. And believe me with people my age there are plenty of ways and things that they help with. Plenty of activities on campus and also trips to places that the residents have suggested. Yes, there are walkers and wheel chairs but these people are more "active" than those of us who do not need them "yet". Beautiful swimming pool that I use about 4 days a week. Have many special events such as "Casino, Havana and International Food" events just to name a few. A great place to call home with its rich family environment.

I like Desoto Beach Club. The place was very pleasant, and the rooms were adequate. Their menu was good. They had a variety of food and there were choices too. If you miss your meals, there's always something you can snack on. They have a pool to swim in, but it is out in the sun, and there isn't any shade over it. However, there seemed to be a lot of activities.

Desoto Beach Club has quite a few different-sized apartments, some of which are oddly shaped but very adequate. The staff is very helpful. The place is very easy to find and convenient. The grounds are beautiful, with a lot of shade trees. They have bus trips every day to stores. The menus look very good, and the place is very clean.

I saw a lot of residents who all looked very happy and enjoying themselves. It was a very comfortable atmosphere. The dining area was very nice.

I went to Desoto Beach Club, and actually signed up there for six months. It’s a clean facility. I went there with my family. We ate there, and they have good food, good security, and safety programs. Their independent-living situation was just fine with me. The staff was all friendly, and very accommodating.

We found Desoto Beach Club for my mother. It is only nine years old, so it is very modern and clean. The studio apartment is really big. It has a full size refrigerator and sink, so it is really a good deal. Their apartments are spacious, modern, and nice. I absolutely recommend this facility to others. The staff is very nice. They're very accommodating and helpful. They're nice people.

My friend moved in to the Desoto Beach Club. It is very good. It is a nice, clean, and comfortable place. They had a lot of amenities. They invited us to lunch, and they had good food. The apartment is very nice, clean, and modern. It is in a convenient location. Everybody was very helpful and friendly. It is in a great location, and it is right by a brand new mall in Sarasota which is the most beautiful city in the country. It is a very nice place.

My mom likes it at Desoto Beach Club. My mom is now 10 minutes away from me instead of 2 hours. It was very nice inside, and I thought the staff was very friendly. She’s not too happy with the food, but she loves her room, and she really was fortunate that she got a room that had a corner. It has a nice living room, too. It has a little bit of shape to it and just enough space for her.

Desoto Beach Club was the first facility that we went to, and it was a good visit. We were able to eat there and the food is very good. It's less than 10 years old and it is right in the growing area, and we really like the facility. The rooms are very good, and this would be one of the facilities chosen if we decided to be in one.
