    5 star review  As a retired firefighter, paramedic, and fire inspector, I have been in my fair share of assisted living centers. After 25 years of service, one develops an eye for these types of facilities. Having toured a plethora of the local higher-rated facilities, we settled on Aravilla Sarasota for my mother-in-law. By far, the quality of care observed, the positive reports from the residences themselves, and the overall management/supervision exceed anything else we have seen. I can usually find at least one violation or deficiency but not here. Aravilla Sarasota was very transparent, which should be considered another positive attribute. If your loved one needs assisted living or memory care, I would highly recommend taking a hard look at Aravilla.

    5 star review  Best of the Best! My elderly parents are now residing in assisted living at Aravilla since November 2019. The quality of care and service has been nothing less than first class. They truly love their residents at this facility! The staff and cleanliness of Aravilla is second to none. My parents always say that they are well treated and cared for at Aravilla. I would recommend anyone to this facility if they need the services they provide. Patty McDonald is one of the directors there when we first toured the facility with Mom & Dad and she and everyone else welcomed them with open arms. Many Thanks to Aravilla and staff!

    5 star review  This is Kay, not, as the header indicates Richard...! He of course tells me he wants to come home. He appears to be content and I always get a great smile. So I do miss him but with the great staff and care, Aravilla is doing a super job, just to keep him smiling .

    5 star review  Patty and Jen took excellent care in providing the best possible options for my Father. Aravilla is the best Assisted Living facility in the greater Sarasota area! (I looked at 6 others). It feels like a beautiful hotel with all of the amenities of a home environment and more. Beautiful pool, plenty of social activities. Fabulous tv lounge with bar like area for socializing. Highly recommend Aravilla for your loved one.

    5 star review  We looked for an assisted living facility for several months when a family friend referred us to someone familiar with senior living. She provided us a list, and at the top was Aravilla of Sarasota. By far, this was the most active of the communities we had visited. It is different from other places we had seen. The people that lived there were friendly, enthusiastic, and even engaged us in conversation. Even patients in the Memory Care unit were active and also spoke highly about this place. This was something that we had not seen. Thus far, everything is going flawlessly with the move-in. If you are looking for assisted living or memory care in the Sarasota area, I would highly recommend checking this place out.

    5 star review  There is nothing negative to say about Aravilla. The staff is caring, smart , organized and compassionate. The communication with the families about daily life and the response to Covid 19 is consistent and detailed. Their handling of the threat of Covid 19 with their residents has been remarkable. My mother is happy and safe at Aravilla. They do everything possible to help her navigate any situation that occurs in her life, whether its medical or the social connection to her family that lives up North. Whenever I call Aravilla with an issue, they respond quickly and I feel go above and beyond to resolve it. The surroundings at Aravilla are clean and pretty ! I will always be grateful to the staff at Aravilla for creating a loving, upbeat and safe community for my Mom.
