Customer Reviews

My mom is really happy here

Everything is going really well and my mom likes being here a lot. She likes the food and the people the most. The food is really good and the menus have a pretty good variety, including all different kinds of foods for people with food allergies, some things are gluten free, and they even have vegan food. The staff seems to like their job and they seem happy. The facility is kept very clean and housekeeping comes by every 2 weeks to change the sheets and make the bed and then clean the rest of the apartment, which has a full sized kitchen. They have tons of activities like exercise classes, bingo, scrabble, mah jong, concerts, movies, news, current events every morning at 9, and they even have a book group. 3 or 4 days a week they have live music at the bar in the dining room, too. For the price you pay, you get 2 meals a day and you can get them at any time, and you get pretty much everything (cleaning, cable, food, etc.) but the internet and a landline are extra (if you want that). I would even live here!

Comfortable stay!

My friend's stay at the Montecito is going well. I am very glad I chose this place instead of any of the others I visited.

I found the staff to be warm and friendly and quite accessible, and the grounds are nicely maintained.

Many amenities and services are available, and the residents seem to be quite happy living there, and try to make new residents feel welcome.


Very rude people work here. I do not recommend this place.

Excellent Facility

Everybody there at The Montecito is extremely helpful and very accommodating and the facility is clean. They have great, great food; it is excellent. I could not be any happier to have my loved one staying there.

staff took really good care of mom

The Montecito Santa Fe is a little pricey but mom doesn't seem to mind. The staff took really good care of mom when she called for help while I was up visiting. Everything is going well and I cant think of anything they need to improve on.

Very luxurious. Tons of amenities and very well designed. The place seems like it was designed around independent living and that assisted living was a bolted on and less well done part of their housing offers.

High turnover in Staff, poor Service,
