Sun City Oro Valley Reviews (5)

Average Rating for this Community

So many of us tell the same story: We were on our way towards Tucson and just happened through Oro Valley, but when we saw those mountains looming above this sweet community of Sun City Oro Valley, we said, “This is the place!” We took a tour of the campus led by volunteers and fell in love when we saw all the amenities. We’ve been here 6 years now and LOVE being part of this vital community!


After ten years, I am still astonished at the quality of this community. Everyone has updated their homes. Our common areas and buildings are kept in tip top shape. Most importantly, this is truly a community. Here we all volunteer to serve on an assoc. committee or serve the club that's of interest to us. We are very, very active. There is plenty to do if you're a "doer" and plenty to enjoy if you are not.
Just a walk down the street brings waves and greetings. Everyone that lives here feels safe, respected and that they belong to our "family". A truly great place to live.


I have lived in SCV for almost 20 years. It is the best move we ever made. The community is small compared with other Del Webb sites but with the most fantastic views. Outside of Tucson in the high desert, we have idea weather for outside activities and there are more activities and clubs than imaginable. A championship golf course, tennis courts, pickleball, art, dancing, continuing education, woodworking, lapidary, ceramics,hiking, and computer classes are just be a few of the many activities available. We have a cafe' on site with catering capability for the many neighborhood parties that are planned throughout the year. This a "the place to live an active life!"


Our wonderfully friendly community! Most of us moved here from somewhere else not knowing any, or very few, residents. Just like the Pioneers of old we had the backbone to pull up stakes to find a new home to enjoy our senior years. We found it! Come visit us and learn why for yourselves.


This is a very poorly run community. Lots of expensive remodels planned but little attention to maintenance. Restaurant is inconsistent with low quality food. Poor communication and code of conducts directed at residents.
