I actually do not feel good about even giving a star to this facility. The advertisement is incorrect, not up to date, and vividly inaccurate. We were directed to this park through a friend. No concerns, even upon calling and making a reservation.
Upon arrival we were meet with an interrogation, quite a welcome about not calling upon arrival. Yet, when we called (3 times) there was only an answering machine that instructed us to call back, BUT, if it was an emergency press a number. We DID NOT press a number as it was not an emergency, yet we were instructed upon interrogation, we should have done that.
During our 2 month stay we were moved once to another RV spot, then moved back to the RV spot we were instructed to be in upon arrival. All due to electrical issues. Pedestals are outdated, thank goodness we use a surge protector. Mind you all of this was in over 105/110 degree weather. We were told we should be prepared for emergencies.
Mesa Sunset advertises amenities, that before, during, and after our stay were not and are still not available. The pool is questionable, the hot tub was nasty, no access to any of the clubhouse while there and other park residents said, " the clubhouse has been in reconstruction since last year before Fall 2021." No wifi due to clubhouse construction work. The laundry room was closed the last of July due to construction/renovation. The bathrooms are nasty. There are large metal fences up all around the clubhouse. They did not tell us any of this on the phone while making the reservations. The Pickleball court is in behind the dumpsters, and the maintenance shed is to the right of the court. The area stinks, is unclean and chairs are ripped. No seating, no balls, etc. Never saw the Shuffleboard area being used, as it was behind metal fences.
The dog park is a long two sided area with enclosed area to unleash dogs, but the ground is extremely nasty. No one picks up after their dogs. I would not let my dogs in the area but twice, and the second time was after I complained and was told they had cleaned the area. I found that to be untrue and never let my dogs back in the area. They also advertise a dog bath area, yet upon inspection the bath area, I found the sink to be made of metal and too hot in sun for bathing dogs. I did not check to see if it was even hooked up as they have bird feeders hanging all around it, and bird poop everywhere. Apache Junction, AZ has a nice grassed fenced in dog park less than 10 miles away.
Since our leave, we relocated to a better park, still in area, we found that the admin assistant has left (She was the best part of our stay) and the maintenance man(I never saw him doing anything except to ride around in golf cart, and water plants at entrance of park).
Overall, the park is still charging higher rates than some, and the amenities, quality is lacking yet advertised to be one of the best in the Valley. BEWARE!
