I Visited This Facility

White Sands La Jolla's rooms were nice, clean, and functional. There were plenty of activities on-site and there was a van to take the residents into the local village. They also had a social coordinator, a library, pool, social room and a couple of cafeteria options. They're pretty nice there. Everyone I met was very friendly and had a very upbeat attitude.

White Sands La Jolla was nice because it was on the beach, but there were only a few very small, dingy apartments on the beach and it was kind of crowded. It used to be an old hotel before they made them into condos or apartments. There were some apartments on the east side of the campus not overlooking the ocean hat were noisy because they were on a street. It's a really nice place. They had a dining room overlooking the ocean which was facing west so they had to pull the blinds down to block the sun. They're doing a lot of remodeling right now.

Overall, we were very positive about White Sands La Jolla. The only negative for us is you have to buy in. It's in a really nice location on the beach. The person there was very helpful and described everything in detail and asked us to call back any time we want to visit again. There's plenty of activities, and you can walk out onto the beach. The food was very good, and the restaurant was very nice. They had a buffet and a salad bar, and you can order off a menu.

White Sands La Jolla had a pretty view. It looked clean and acceptable. The staff was very polite, professional, and were doing their jobs. They had singing and movies, a variety of games, and activities like that. There's a posted schedule and always something for them to do. The rooms were small. In the nursing facility, they had a two-bedroom, two-bathroom room at a reasonable price. It's a huge facility with apartments. The community has all levels from people in a nursing home to people who are completely independent and have their own apartments. It looked clean and neat. I did not have any complaints.

White Sands La Jolla truly feels like a five star resort. This facility has all the amenities you’d expect of a resort too including a fitness center, nice spas and pools and plenty of recreational space to socialize or entertain. White Sands La Jolla also has an unbeatable location as its right along the beach which allows residents to have the perfect view of the crashing waves of the ocean. You can also hear the ocean from some parts of the facility and see the ocean while sitting in the pool area. This facility certainly has all the bells and whistles of normal facilities and a special five-star resort feel that make it one of a kind. Another plus of this facility is that it's located across the road from Chateau La Jolla Inn, a hotel, making it easy for friends and family to pay residents a visit.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

For those who can afford the nicer things that life has to offer, this is it. The location says it all. Anyone who grew up near water can truly appreciate the beauty of this property. I was visiting a friend who had only a few days to live and when I walked in her room, the window coverings were wide open and the crashing waves on the shore would be her last memory of earth. I thought "what a heavenly feeling" and a very spiritual moment. I learned this room was reserved for those in their last days as it had the best view in the community. I love the gorgeous apartment style, living spaces. The design is award winning. Located near downtown La Jolla, it is a happening place to live when you want to leave your gorgeous accommodations. The care is wonderful. The best nurses and everyone is so well trained and enjoys their work. This is a place where residence will start talking about how much they love living here. It seems they look forward to the years of aging ahead of them.
