AlmaVia of San Rafael looks beautiful. It looks like a luxury hotel. It's very well-managed and the people are very nice. The room we saw also looks like a nice hotel suite. The staff seems very caring and well-trained. They look good to me. When we were there they were having a little party for the residents. They also have music and snacks. The place was very clean.

AlmaVia of San Rafael is the only one I have found that has its own assigned parking. I have a car, so that’s one of the big options that I’d like to have. It’s very cozy, very clean, friendly, and smells good. The food is very good as is the dining room. My husband was in it, and his studio was beautiful and had a lot of art. The staff was excellent.

AlmaVia of San Rafael is only 10 years old, so it has a more modern, clean, and upgraded feel to it. I like it. They have movies, activities, bingo, and libraries. The rooms, physically, in square footage were smaller than where my husband is now, but it's not as expensive. It's nice and clean.
