    The Montera was going through a remodel which they were very excited with, but I found their apartments to be shabby. I would not recommend it. They had activities like yoga classes and Bingo. The food was not terribly impressive. The staff seemed to know all of their people quite well, and they called them by name which made it very personal. I liked their koi fish ponds with bridges that went on top of them and a nice walking area. It just wasn’t for me or for my parents.
