No place is perfect, but this has been the perfect match for my loved ones.

I think it's perfect for my family. They are very plain, down-to-earth people. We visited some other facilities where women were dressed nicely for meals, and that is just not my loved ones. For them, this has been a perfect match. The apartment is fine, relatively small but bigger with more light than others that we saw at other places. I had great interactions with the staff through the move-in process. I was very impressed with them. They were accommodating, patient, and friendly. My loved ones love the food here and are very happy with it.

Nice conversation with [name removed]. Nice concept of independent living. First impression rugs needed replacing and maybe rooms could use fresh coat of paint. [name removed]said they are working on replacing rugs. Nice but kinda worn. Spoke with resident seemed happy. Social activity although I did not see much.Not crazy about the doors being locked at 7:30 with residents having special key to get in after 7:30 and if help needed had a call system you wore to press for help. Granted this independent living and they would not have any more than a call system at home. For me I just feel better if there is staff available at night. For the money the previous place I discussed would be a much better fit I believe for my dad.

Our experience with Desoto Beach CLub

We chose Desoto Beach Club because the facility itself was clean, the staff members were friendly and I felt like they were confident and attentive. The apartment sizes here are good. I think they have done a good job during the whole covid experience with monitoring visitors and adjusting the food/activities and adapting to the whole situation. I would recommend to others looking.

Scary for Our Loved One and Us

I feel the staff were more concerned about themselves than the residents. They would serve food on a Styrofoam plate, and delivered the food to the resident's rooms. We ended up taking my loved one out of the community, since they were locked in their room. The residents were stuck in their room and their health declined rapidly.

Check this place, it's worth it

We chose Desoto beach club because the people were very friendly here, it felt like I knew them for years and it is very family oriented facility. I would highly recommend them to others who are looking and already have.

My Review of Desoto Beach Club

The kitchen doesn't know how to accommodate the hours that are posted and residents expect. The staff are very friendly. However, there isn't enough staff.

Great Place

I would suggest to others that this isn't set up to be transferred to another part of the community if a resident gets ill. For a senior living community it is great.

The staff exceeds all expectations and goes all out to answer any question or problem! The amenities of the facility leave little to be desired. Management has handled the pandemic in a very thorough way. Several activities are great and varied.

A lot for your money

We chose Desoto Beach club because I felt it was very affordable. She also had a balcony off of her nice little apartment. It just overall seemed like a nice place for the money. I would want others to know that if you have a loved one who does not dress to the nines and wear makeup and jewelry, then forget it. The women were not friendly or welcoming to her since she was new. She could never find a place to sit it was like being in high school again. We really liked the community, but she did not fit in so we moved her.

Awesome Place

The staff and administration treat you with respect and dignity. With staff and residents Desoto Beach Club make you feel like famiiy. This is a tight knit group where all are welcomed. The activities are great. The Desoto Beach Club's Bus takes to you to many shopping stores in the area. The facility follows all COVID guidelines. The staff cares about the residents. The full size heated swimming pool is great for exercise. The chef prepared meals are outstanding. If I could give this facility more than 5 stars, I wouldand would recommend the Desoto Beach Club to anhone.

First impressions of Desoto Beach Club

Location is very good. Close to shopping and restaurants, as well as close to our doctors. The residents and staff are all very friendly. Staff always have smile to share. We have had all our meals delivered to our apartment due to Covid-19 concerns. Still, it is tasty. There are many opportunities to keep active. My wife and I are becoming comfortable in our apartment. We think this was a good move for both of us. Would select Desoto Beach Club again.
