Sun City Festival Reviews (15)
Basically, like previously mentioned, services that were promised are not living up to expectations...that includes the activities, the landscaping, the quality of the construction. And the home costs and and the amenities are not inexpensive by any means. Like we all must understand in life, customer service and promises are always top-notched until the money is put down.
All in all, my Uncle regrets the move here and feels he should have moved to a community more established and nearer to civilization.
With regards to the gym, the staff there lets the disinfectant wipe containers stay empty, not refilled, so seems like an unhealthy place to work out.
Still a lot of construction going on so plan on being woken up at 5:30 AM every morning to the sound of heavy equipment, which seems to be the time the HOA is allowing them to start work.
Keep in mind that Del Webb is only a name that Pulte purchased and that Del Webb's mission was to build and market a lifestyle. It is unfortunate that Pulte wants only to sell homes, refuses to expand on the amenities and is not sensitive to homeowner’s needs or wants.
In conclusion, “BUYER BEWARE”. What you are told and what is delivered most likely don’t match.
I would tell buyers to be aware and be careful!
Great golf facilities, many clubs and activities
based in the massive clubhouse.
Barely twenty minutes away from bustling Surprise, it
is a desert paradise with perfect weather and the starriest skies.
We 'test-drove' the community by renting a home for a month.
A great way to see if this is YOUR paradise!
