Sun City West Reviews (9)

Average Rating for this Community

Bought in 2019, & the Covid thing put a damper. Great facilities, great clubs, good variety of housing. We are close to many shopping and restaurant options. Wide streets, little traffic. Yes we have old people, but we are a retirement community.


We have spent seven winters in West. Reasonable prices,solar panels and low taxes make it a star in senior living. The golf is low price and the opportunity to play all sports is unequal. Meeting people is as available as you want. The roads are wide and the lots are large and level. We even have a town with cart access. It is filled with eateries, doctors, dentists, and hardware stores. The people are great at volunteering. Its a little slice of heaven.


Great home prices, great neighbors, everything to do if you want to.


Bought in March 2014 for seasonal use! Have been back 5 times since and absolutely live it! There is always something going on or to do even in the off season!People are so friendly here! It really is was of the nicest things that we have ever done for ourselves. Groceries, restaurants, gas, rec centers, pharmacies, Starbucks, hospital are just a few blocks away!


We moved here from Wisconsin and are enjoying our new lives thoroughly! Everyone is so friendly and there are so many things to do. Walking, swimming and biking for starters. Free movies in the park (and soon at the pool, too) were a lot of fun last month. Over 100 clubs to try and think about joining.


I moved in to Sun City West in 1995 after my kids encouraged me to downsize from our large family home. My husband had passed a few years prior and it was a difficult decision. Looking back it was the best decision for me and I am very happy with the friendships I've made here. I've had so many opportunities to travel and experience things I never dreamed of. I love the craft clubs and have even started making some money selling my pieces. I feel like part of a family here and that has meant the world to me.


We spent the day with Jay today and he is a great agent. Listens,helps and is so personable. A pleasure to wrk with.


Like - Diversity of people and interesting things to do. Dislike-too many old people, need some young blood


Homeowner for several years. Disappointed on how the community spends through our money with poor decisions, redo’s and secrecy. Hang on to your wallet and do your research before you buy.
