Customer Reviews

You know this was my favorite place. When my turn comes this is where I want to be.

Blue Skies of Texas Visit

We had one of the best tours of a facility for our mother lead by Michelle [Removed]. This place is ideal for those who are wanting independence and a place where services are all inclusive. Michelle is such a compassionate, knowledgeable person to work with. She provided so much insight into our particular situation and was extremely patient with the many questions we had.

Nice Community!!

I went on a tour with my sister we really liked it. The staff seemed nice. It looks like my in laws will be choosing this community for the future.

Blue Skies of Texas East Anxiety Apartments

When they want to sign you up, your catered to by hand and foot. Once you are a resident, you realize you have been bamboozled. The apartments have plumbing and air conditioning problems. Our apt. without fail has a black sludge that makes its way into our shower, often. The air conditioning in this place is very old. Weekly, the air does not cool. And heat during the winter is just as bad. They have maintenance personnel that works only eight to five p.m., after hours, or weekends, you have to wait until regular hours. The vents all over have black mold. They also keep a close watch over you, so as to move you into the Arnold House Assisted Living Apts., or The Mission. Why? Because they make more money that way. My wife and I are looking to move with family. Stick to your family, get a small apt. near family, hire a live in helper, keep it simple, remain in control. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON THIS GOING DOWN THE DRAIN PLACE CALLED BLUE SKIES OF TEXAS. The food is horrible. So many salmonella cases in their bistro. They don't have adequate kitchen staff or waiters. You must stand in line to order, then go sit at table. Foods never cooked properly. Over priced frozen dinners. Stay away I say!!!

So far, it's great!

There is nothing I have anything to complain about. It's clean, and the staff is friendly. They have been responsive to any of the little things I have asked about so far. They have two lovely restaurants, one is a little dressier, and more upscale than the other, and the food has been great. The thing I found most relaxing was their attitude towards getting my money, and after looking at some other places around, I don't think the value could be beat. It's still new, and it's only been a couple of months, but so far, it's great!

They had a great environment, and great people.

AF1 and all the communities we toured had key things that made them great. They had a great environment, and great people, the attitude of the people was great. I am not sure if we just picked only great communities to look at or if there are no bad ones. They were all fabulous, the ones that were close in proximity or the ones far away, they were all great! We couldn't pick one because we loved them all.

Review of Air Force Village I Assisted Living in San Antonio, TX

Buy-in very big draw back! Same price as other facilities on the northside of town. Cottage only option with a pet. East-very dated. West-more like a large hotel.

Has everything my Mom was l...

Has everything my Mom was looking for. A lot of activity. A lot of people out and about, very friendly, and a lot of very positive, unsolicited endorsements. Weekly Catholic mass on site. My Mom's doctor has office hours at AFV. Mom's pharmacy delivers to AFV. An indoor pool for exercise. Beautiful views. Good options for visiting guests. Most important, a continuum of options after independent living, right on site.

Responsive community

Just listen to everything that they tell you. There were things that I had to go back and ask questions about… just listen to what they have to say. The food is good – a five. We haven’t had any problems with the laundry. There is enough parking fine. I bought a concern to the management’s attention and they took care of it right away.
