Customer Reviews

Hello [name removed] I did tour Pacific Point! I was assisted very professionally. I was shown all the installation. I am very pleased with what I saw except for the fact that I was told there were no units with roll-in showers. However I was informed that I could have one installed at my expense. The people I met were very friendly and knowledgeable. I decided I would go ahead and fill out an application and I paid the initial fees. So now I am the proud “renter of unit [location removed]!! I love the view. The room is larger than the room I’ve been in for the last several years. I plan to move in this Saturday!!!😃😁😋. When I see something that is a good fit I don’t waste time because I don’t want to run the risk of losing it.
[name removed] I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help in my search. You figured out what I need and tailored the search to the perfect place! You are what I like to call a wingless Angel! Thanks again and may God bless you now and forever. I FOUND MY SHANGRELA! I would rate the property a very strong 9 out of 10! I could give it a 10 because the door to the bathroom is too narrow but that problem can be remedied by simply removing the door and installing a shower curtain for privacy.

Very friendly staffs and the the property was small which appealed to my Mom. The Studio room was more than adequate for Mom's needs. Very low community fee.

The staff is very nice and helpful here

My Mom has only been here for a small amount of time, but so far everything seems to be going well. The only issues I’ve had were with the medications department. As far as the facility itself, it’s old and the carpets are stained but it’s clean and it smells good. Anytime I talk with the staff, they’re always nice and helpful. Mom seems to like the food and seems to be really happy in general. They were very quick to let me know when an incident occurred that landed my Mom in the hospital and I was grateful for that. I would recommend them for anyone that doesn’t have a lot of money to spend.

I visited this place and it seems ok. It feels a little run down in the common areas (feels like an older community library or rec center with not enough funding, old equipment, old books, old furniture etc). The price is good compared to most retirement communities.

Mom's type of vcare

This is a nice community. I am needing to have my mom in a differnt type of care from a new community. This was not what I was needing at the time. The community needs alot of improvements on the meals. They used alot of paper plated and that was not a good impression. I do like the staff and the community is clean and maintained. I would recommend other families to this community if it is what they need for the care of a loved one.

No thanks, Pacific Point

I moved to Pacific Point in 2015 at a time that I was on a walker & in chronic pain. The Pacific Point Representative who toured me around the facility showed me the first 2 floors but not the 3rd floor where the gym equipment, arts & crafts room & beauty salon were. It was several months later that I learned about the third floor's various activities. My studio was next to the 2nd floor fire escape & I frequently observed non-resident unsavory types going up & down those stairs especially at night, which made me feel very vulnerable. The only meal here I could stomach was breakfast. I had a small refrigerator in my studio that I ate out of the rest of the time. Activities were lame. The monthly rent was high for what was offered. Most everyone living there who spoke to me wanted to move out as I eventually did.

Nice place with nice people and attractive pricing. During our visit, [Removed] made it feel like home to my mother-in-law. There is a high likelihood that she will end up moving into Pacific Pointe.

The room they had available was very cute! West facing, palm trees, mirrored closets with plenty of light and a walk in shower. The facility itself seemed to be renovated and cleaned to show instead of truly improve. I don't know if I get this impression because of the more difficult time they must have keeping things nice to allow smokers and pets or if there is work to be done within management but it felt like a poorly maintained hotel. All the right things were there for a great center but with a less than thorough cleaning, disorganization, and missing some of those finishing touches that really pull everything together the look and feel are less than spectacular.

Friendly Staff!!

My father doesn't have a television in his room, so he goes down to the lobby and gets to socialize with other residents. The staff are friendly and communicate well. My father has mentioned that the meals are good they have good portions them. He seems to like residing in the community. There are various activities offered as well.

The building is well organized. Hallway carpeting could use a cleaning but perhaps that's a constant battle.

Other residents appear friendly and watchful for those who may need some help.

The laundry room facilities could use some maintenance... one washer has been broken for quite some time by resident report.

Communication is a bit rough as would be expected in this type of facility.

Active Senior Living

Everything is working out pretty well for me here at this community. The staff have been very good, they have been great to work with. I help them out around the community and they are always willing to help me. It is a nice and clean facility, they do a pretty good job with that. I've tired some activities. The food is decent, but they have a lot of different diets to accommodate. I would recommend this community for an active senior.

I'am Happy At This Community

I'am doing very well at this community, I'am happy here. This is a very nice community, but I do think they need to do the cleaning more often. The landscaping and general areas needs to be cleaned and handled better. The staff is nice, they have been respectful and very helpful. The food is great, I enjoy the meals. I'am meeting new people. There are activities offered. Overall everything is going well and I would recommend it.

Mom Is Happy

Everything is going very well for my mother at this community. I do not live in the same state, so it is nice knowing she is happy. The community is very well-kept and everything looks nice and clean. She is trying some new activities and meeting new people. The food is nice, she lots of choice to choose from. She is happy so I would recommend it.

A Decent Community

My grandmother is doing pretty well at this community. It's a pretty nice community, it is clean, and well-kept. The staff is nice and helpful when she needs them. We had a few issues at first, but management has resolved most of our concerns. The food is okay, but the kitchen and servers are slow. Everything is working out pretty well and I would say if you don't have a lot of choices, this would be a nice community to take a look at.

Review of Pacific Pointe - Chula Vista, CA

Everyone was very friendly. My parents enjoyed greeting some of the residents. The property is older. We didnt really try the food. My parents werent very hungry and we waited quite a while for the waiter to come take our order. My dad just wanted to get on with the tour.

Best bang for the buck

Very reasonable apartment fees.
Building has been totally remodeled within the last few months. Great job!
Friendly staff and caregivers.

Pretty Nice and Friendly

They were pretty nice and friendly. The only thing that I would complain about is that when my mom first moved in they said they would have a group that gives them a welcome basket and show them around and that never happened. Other than that it has been okay.

So far I am satisfied with the experience

I really like Pacific Pointe. The facility is clean. The staff are friendly. I have no complaints at this point. So far I am satisfied with the experience at this facility.

I would recommend Pac Pointe to anyone! The food is excellent, the staff is very helpful, and they provide transportation. The facility is so nice. As a matter of fact I'm going to move in!

honest thoughts

The staff is very helpful. Meals are well balanced and on time. I think there needs to a staff member to schedule activities on a daily basis. All the cost of living is included plus transportation. It is in great location.

A good experience

It has been a good experience at the Pacific Pointe. We haven't had any major issues. The maintenance staff is outstanding. It's clean and friendly. The only minor issue is that the meal service seems to be a little slow. Other than that, no complaints. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The value is excellent. The care services and activities are good.

Its Horrid

The place is ugly, nasty, and smells like urine. Its horrid. They claim to be an assisted living, they are not except to an outside source. Nothing is provided. I am currently looking privately to place my mother into another community.

wonderful overall

The people at Pacific Pointe are wonderful. The initial sign-up process was very efficient and professional, and they were very friendly throughout the whole process.

There hasn't been the follow-through that we expected with some of the care services. Also, she was supposed to be assigned an ambassador (one of the residents that knows the way around to help her get acclimated) and that never happened. This has made it a little harder for her to get oriented and adjusted into the place. Mom has also complained a little about the food, and I do think there should be better quality control in the kitchen.

Other than that it has been a very positive experience.

Very nice place!

Everything has gone very well with Pacific Pointe, I would give them top marks across the board! The facility itself is nice looking, well kept, and clean. The staff have all been very friendly, and they seem to take great care of the people who live here!

Good value for a nice place to live.

A Place for Mom recommended Pacific Pointe among other places. We toured early in our search and were impressed by the friendliness of the people and the facility. When my daughter's mother arrived in town we went back because they had a shared room opening at a reasonable price and looked again. Of the many places we toured this was the best overall and the best value. She has been there almost two months and gets along well with her roommate and enjoys being there.

We were really happy with them.

We were really happy with them. It's more of and independent living. My loved one liked the environment, and they loved him there. The staff was great. He just needed more care. We were able to have helping hands come in, but after a while we just needed more care. It was a great place while we were there though.

As an all-inclusive community, most residents find value and enjoyment in our full range of amenities such as fitness classes, daily outings and 3 chef-prepared meals per day. We welcome you back to visit our community and to fully see Pacific Pointe has to offer.

It’s a beautiful community.

It’s a beautiful community. It’s safe. The food could have more variety! They should change it up and not have the same stuff every week. It’s a good place. They need more parking. It’s pretty clean and people are friendly.

Have to move 91 yr. old mom to southern Calif.

I was given a thorough tour of Pacific Pointe by Nanette last week and was able to view the small and medium studios and the one bedroom. Unfortunately, the large studios were all rented but she said she'd contact me when one became available. I did not feel rushed to complete the tour and could ask questions freely.

I was impressed by the services available at Pacific Pointe that are included in the modest rent. One of the other facilities in Chula Vista did not include all meals and the rent was significantly higher. It was also much bigger (300+ seniors) and more spread out, not having the "homey" feel that P.P. has.

It's going to be quite a challenge to move my mom from S.F. after 50 years in her apt. but she is actually looking forward to it. She's 91 and lives alone and all of her friends have died. There is no one left in S.F. and I'm worried about her lack of socialization, not to mention only getting to see her once a year. I think Pacific Pointe will be the right fit.

P.S. Being nosey, I asked a lady sitting in the lobby when I arrived what she thought of living there. She said that she lived here, moved over to the other larger senior residence (that I had also toured) and moved BACK to Pacific Pointe because she liked it better. That made me feel confident that we're making the right choice. P.P. will even credit money towards your move and is sending my mom a pamphlet to examine.

Please let us know if you have further questions about our all-inclusive community, the location, our live-in managers, or if there is anything we can do to make your decision easier.

Great Management, Food Could Use Improvement

I'm in a medium studio and I pay extra for my cats which I think is fair. The only problem is the food. Even though it's supposed to come with the price I'm ordering from meals on wheels because I need a low fat diet and they don't provide that. I like the activities. We just got a new activities director and she's really willing to letting people here give suggestions about what to do. She's open to new suggestions which I really like. What I was really impressed with is just yesterday we had a fire drill and I was impressed by that. I like how it was done. They really were knocking at all the resident's doors and explaining. They listen o complaints of the residents and I think they act on that. I'm really impressed with that. The management are really in tuned to what the residents want.

Sunshine

Mishandled Bed Bug Situation

Except for one really disturbing thing that's going on it's been okay. They're getting it cleared up but what happened was I found that I had abed bugs in my room. Rather than calling in a professional company, they just rushed into my room and started throwing my belonging in plastic bags. They put me and my dog in another room. The destroyed some of my belongings - they just handled it terribly. The company they called had never worked in residential places, only commercial ones where you can destroy things and easily replace them.
When they finally did return things to me they just brought the plastic bags in my room with all of my belongings haphazardly thrown in. It's taken me a couple of months to begin to put the place back together again. It's been very distressing. My daughters took over handling the whole situation and negotiate with them to pay for things that they destroyed. They've reached some agreement with the corporation that they will not do that again, that they will always use a professional company.

They've been very kind in a whole lot of ways and the staff has been very kind but on the other hand they turned around and handle situation like the bed bugs terribly so I'm not sure how to rate them.

If you ever need anything, please contact us 24/7, we are here for you and each and every one of our residents!

Pleasant Independent Living

I toured after living and leaving somewhere else. I am now living here. I find the atmosphere very "community-like". The people are warm and the management are friendly. 24-management is the big plus. That is reassuring to me. I am super-pleased with the library as it is large, has a computer and free Wi-Fi, and is in a separate area from the recreation rooms/tv room. The meal plan needs work, but a new cook arrived so I have high hopes. Yes, it is an old building, but it FEELS homey. Location, location, location! 3 parks within blocks. Wal Mart, Target and Petco within blocks. The Police Dept is 2 blocks away. Fire Dept a few blocks farther. A wonderful Senior Center a few blocks away where you can go for more fun activities. I really am pleased with Pacific Pointe. They treat me with respect. Only thing I would like different is the mail slots be put out in a more accessible area so I don't have to bother the staff to get it.
