Elan Buena Vista in The Villages, FL
5.0

We chose this community because out of the ones that we looked into for my friend, this one was the best. The room sizes are good and spacious. I have eaten here and the food is very good, they have a lot of variety. I would recommend Elan Buena Vista to a friend or family member.
