My sister has lived here for 2+ years and I am very happy with her selection. The complex is beautiful, very well maintained, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The food is good and activities before Covid was wonderful. I feel that it is a safe place for her and that she is in good hands. I highly recommend the El Dorado for other potential residents.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
This retirement community hasn't been remodeled in decades and it's obvious when you look around at the decor. The question is- where else are they cutting corners if they won't simply give the walls a fresh coat of modern paint or update the early 1980s decor? Another red flag was the current salesperson. Be sure to write down what she says El Dorado and the parent company offer and then double check this with current residents and/or the parent company, Holiday Retirement. For example, the current salesperson made us think that only one unit was currently available (the most expensive within our price range, of course). After sending in another unrelated person we learned that they're were several less expensive units available. The current salesperson will also claim that residents of El Dorado can stay at any of the the other Holiday Retirement properties around the country. However, what she won't tell you is it's nearly impossible to find another Holiday property with an available guest suite! Just check reviews for Holiday Retirement or call them yourselves. Another issue to take into consideration is the transportation they offer. The salesperson will make you believe that El Dorado has transportation available 7 days a week to take residents to appointments and anywhere you need to go. That is simply not true. They have a part-time driver, a van with no lift for those in a chair or walker, and this van is ONLY available a few days per week and for only a couple of set hours on this set days. Not exactly what the salesperson makes you believe. Another area where we found discrepancies in what the salesperson told us in the beginning was the lease. The salesperson made us believe that there were no long term leases at El Dorado. However, when pressed with a direct question about the lease, she let us know that only a 12 month lease would receive the lowest quoted rate. Furthermore, she claimed that if we paid a one time fee up front (around $2,500) that the rent would NEVER increase, as long as we lived there. Good luck verifying this claim with anyone else at El Dorado or Holiday Retirement. Finally, this hard-selling, B.S. spewing salesperson claimed that a particular unit was available one day......days later claimed it was no longer available......and then just days later, like magic, the unit was available again......but AT A HIGHER MONTHLY RATE. This prompted us to contact a senior living referral service to help us locate several other communities in our area that we were unaware of and offered MORE than El Dorado at a LOWER MONTHLY RATE! The moral of this story is don't always believe a commissioned salesperson..... and always know what other options there are out there be a one signing the leaseReviewed on A Place For Mom
Residents were amazingly friendly which means they are happy. My Dad loved the food (they invited us for lunch). The staff was great and made my Dad feel very comfortable during the tour. Robust activities and social functions to keep them busy and entertained.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
