Very nice. Clean. Love most things about this place. Employees are nice and pleasant. A couple of the concierges could use some customer service training. They're unpleasant and look like you are bothering them. Food is good, however, plan on staying at least 2 to 2 1/2 hours if you eat in the dining room. Servers are pleasant and friendly, but inexperienced . Food takes forever. Apts are nice, like the amenities. Expensive.

We visited the Villa St. Benedict, and it was very nice. We love everything about it except when you have to move up to another level of care it is $9000 and $12000, and we don’t have much income. The apartments were fine, and the bistro, the shop and the entertainment were fine as well. The food was good; we had soup and chicken. I would recommend it to anybody who can afford it.

Villa St. Benedict was very nice. They had good programs. We had a couple of meals there and they were very good. We looked at one of the duplexes and one of the apartments in the building and they were very nice. They had lots of amenities. However, I thought it was beyond our means.

Villa St. Benedict is probably the Cadillac of places; it was beautiful -- very expensive -- and you have to buy in. We ate in the Bistro or deli, and it was very good. It’s like a small café. I think they only serve dinner in the dining area. The staff was very helpful, pleasant, and very welcoming. They had a bell choir, Bingo, cards, and games. They have a craft room where people could go and do scrapbook or make things, and there are several activities every day.

Villa St. Benedict is a very beautiful facility. I couldn't really find anything wrong with it. But it's very pricey. Just to get into the place, you're talking almost $200,000. That's kind of pricey when you're looking at somebody in their 80s. It is beautiful. The grounds are massive. It's the largest place out of all the places I went to. My mom is already in her 80s. It just doesn't make sense in my mind to be putting out $200,000 because you own the unit. It is very large. You can even have your own little duplex and you can live off on your own, which I didn't like. They need to come in to the main building for food. I didn't care for that. But that's okay for people who are younger than my mother. They have a beautiful church inside the building. Everything is beautiful in there. They had all sorts of activities, like exercises. They're across the street from a university, so they would have the students who are studying to be physical therapists work with the residents there to help them with their exercise. They had the biggest gym out of any place I saw. When you go there and you've seen it, you're in awe because it is beautiful until they tell you the price.
