Resident 2019 - 2021

4/14/2021

I give this place a zero if I could. Where should I begin. First, the apartments floors are very weak. You can hear foot step of the apartment above and versa below can hear you walk. It very loud and annoying when trying to relax from work. If you have kids trying to run around it won't be a good fit. Second, The manager Judy is a real snake in the grass manager that tries to evict you for any little reason. She a con manager that tries to keep your deposit and comes up with damages that you didn't do or charges that are bogus. That's the main reason I moved. She always in people business. She inspected my apartment after I announced my 30 days. She inspected it two days later. I still had furniture still inside. She force me to do it as she was rushing. All apartment I lived in it normally get inspected when turning in keys for the last time. Beware of this manager. Third, she let kids tear up the community. She let alot ------ people move in with bunch kids that their parents don't watch them run around the community getting in… See More>

    I have lived here for 3 years. The staff is nice. The floorplans are great. The closet in the master (2 bed/2 bath) is HUGE! The gate is always closed at night for security, and its close to Tempe Marketplace and Mesa Riverview. Straight shot to the 202. Convenient location

      I have been a resident at Colores Del Sol for 1 year and I love this community. The staff is friendly and respond to my concerns or repairs, as soon as, I notify them. Also, my neighbors are quiet and the community is clean. I enjoy living here and I give this apartment complex a five star rating.

        I have lived here for 4 years. Staff is friendly and listens to whatever your needs are. I am located in such a good place near office, pool, and mailroom. I am hoping to live here for many years to come. Apartment is spacious, not at all little or boxy. The yearly rent raise is what will determine how many more years I can live here in my home. Thank you for keeping grounds clean and displaying the beautiful plants to add to the scenery. Thank you Colores del Sol.

          This is the worst place I have ever lived at. (Sep 2014- Sep 2015). I am so glad I'm out of there! We paid a $500 deposit before moving in & I also got a gym key for $50 & I was told that I would get a refund for returning the gym key, which was a complete lie. They never returned the $50 for the gym key & they kept the entire $500 deposit. I called to complain and they said the carpet was SO damaged that they had to replace it. It's a bunch of Bull****. These people are crazy, they lie & keep your money. They are slow when it comes to fixing any problem in the apartment. Do not move in here please! This place is a joke. Julie & Sam are liars, don't be fooled by their smiling faces. Beware of this ratchet place! !

            I have lived in Colores Del Sol from Oct 2014- to Oct 2015. I have enjoyed living here and have had an overall positive experience. The apartment is in good working order, I did need to follow up on move in for maintenance, repairs, and cleaning which was disappointing but the staff, maintenance and Sam, were friendly and responsive. Everything was handled within about a week of move-in, problems stemmed largely from a super dirty previous tenant. Interiors are partially updated but cabinets and fixtures are older, everything works well and mostly just shows wear (this varies drastically apartment to apartment, my friend moved into a pristine almost new looking unit, ours was a little worse for wear). The rent is great for the location and size. I have always felt safe even though the surrounding neighborhoods are not that great. Super family and pet friendly complex, with grounds well kept. However there is one area that maintenance/grounds keeping has trouble keeping on top of where the combination of a lot of kids and pets leave it pretty dirty; I have seen this area clean so know for a fact it is just dirty tenant(s) in the vicinity which is… See More>

                I heard place needs new staff, I have two coworkers on property now, visited them and said to look elsewhere. The office staff are clowns. Maintainence guy loves to repair everything with duct tape and while both coworkers arent home. Creepy dude. They said they can't wait to finish their prison sentence they committed themselves to. Oh well on to the next, still searching. But this place sounds whack thou.

                  It's the worse place I've lived in as apartments go. 1st - when it rains, there are no drains or flood control. The parking lot gets flooded, so there is no where to park without being in a swimming pool. 2nd - other residents leave trash, diapers etc outside their door, instead of walking their lazy --- to the trash bin. It ends up stinking up the whole area around your door. 3rd - smoking is out of control too. If you're a non-smoker, you'll be in hell with the smell of cigarettes all around your apartment. 4th - people walk their pets and let them ---- anywhere without picking it up, then you end up smelling ---- on top of everything else. 5th - you try to talk to the apartment staff about your dissatisfaction about everything and they just don't care. Reason, your stuck in a lease for a year or whatever time frame you select, so you have to be miserable in the place where you are supposed to call home. You would think that paying this much in rent, they would try to keep their residents happy. I really wish I would have read reviews prior… See More>

                        The worst place possible. The staff are unprofessional and they lie about you. They have yelled and screamed in my face and falsified information in my file. The grounds are not kept up and the parking lot has holes in it. The hot tub never works and its hard to get in and out of the gate. A complete fire hazzard. They allow large dogs there; I don't mind that except I almost got bit by one in the parking lot. There is no privacy, no peace in the community. There are drugs being sold in the parking lot area. They do nothing about that but they will most cetainly harrass you. My windows have not ever been fixed. One won't close all the way and another feels like its going to fall out? It was like that when i moved in. Renting here was the worst mistake ever! The dryer has ruined almost all of my work attire. I can't wait til my lease is up so i can RUN!

Plumbling is at an epic failure and anyone with a brain could find a better place to move in any five mile radius. Stay far far away from this place. It should be demolited.

                            Drugs everywhere. Assigned parking not enforced. Neighborhood kids climbing over the fence into the pool at all hours of the night. No security patrol. Gates not locked at night. No response to maintenance emergency calls.

                              We lived here in 08 it was great!!!! Moved back to the city in 2011 and This place is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!! when we moved in we were put in a different apartment then we were told, the place was filthy they didn't clean painted over trash and stuff on the walls. The gates didn't work open or close. There are things that have been broken since we moved in 14 months ago!! The building is infested with roaches and other bugs every person in the building has made complaints and they seem to hardly care. The management is rude and not concerned with the condition of apartments just how it looks on the outside and collecting rent. We had to personally seal all of our windows and doors because they all had huge gaps to the outside. My kids can't play on the playground because it so gross there are bottles laying around outside even puddles of blood outside that were not taken care of. There is never any parking. And then they raised the rentand pet rent! Do NOT ever live here

                                  Lived here for 5 months now. had both AC and heater die in that time. Hooligan kids running up and down stairs all night long. Playground is constantly in shambles from unsupervised children. "Gated complex" is a joke. Ive never once had to use my security code to open the gate, as its NEVER closed. Refrigerator broke (of course day after grocery shopping) and they said they are not responsible for all the spoiled food. Awesome news to a family living on 1 income with 4 children. DONT MOVE HERE!

                                    Not sure what all this is about the management is great. The ladies in the office are super sweet and go above their jobs to help us. With the bug problem...is not management fault. That has to do with other people living nasty. We had a bug problem for two days and they came right to take care of it. It s been several month and haven t seen one pest. I am guessing some people are not that smart and take it on other people. The complex is so small and only two people to run in it and I think they do a great job to make us feel right at home We love our floor plan and it comes with a washer and dryer too. (Full size) For this area this is REALLY nice complex. The price is way below what they should be charging. We got new carpet and accent walls when we moved in. Our lease expires in a few months and we are SO signing again.

                                      My boyfriend and I visited this property and really liked the price for what seemed like quality. We put down a holding deposit on an apartment, pending approval. The document/receipt for the deposit stated that we had 48 hours to get the deposit back if we changed our minds, but that the deposit was refundable if we were not approved for the apartment. My credit was not approved, so they told us we were denied. I asked if a co-signer would change things; they said no. I asked if we could get the apartment if my boyfriend was approved on his own. The manager said yes. She made it clear that because I wouldn't be on the lease I would not be able to personally request help from maintenance and if I got locked out of the apartment they wouldn't be able to give me a key because my name would not be on the lease. He got approved and we were excited to move in. Two weeks later, which was 2 weeks before our planned move-in date- my boyfriend got a call that management had changed and he was no longer approved for the apartment and… See More>

                                        I would like to comment on the below negative comments. I just rented an apartment this week and will be moving in this August. (Been waiting for over a year to live here if that tells you anything) I am super excited!! There must be new staff now or something. The girl that leased us are new home is awesome she is super sweet and very helpful. She said she is new to the business but she defiantly knows what she is doing and she is always smiling. (Great customer service) We think that is a very good sign. This is a great place! Seems very quite and we can see the changes already to the place from the 1st time we visited a few weeks ago. I am going to give this place a chance plus it s the BEST we found for location. Most the other places around don t have what they have or look as good as Colores Del Sol. Give them a chance plus a home is where you make it.

I was told on day two that after 72 hours they would put me up in a hotel, seriously... It was summer in Az. I had an infant at the time. The noise was horrible. The neighbor upstairs kid sounded like he was jumping onto the ceiling fan and jumping off onto the floor. The neighbor behind me had their music so loud that I could sing along with my TV on. Plus the music lasted way into the morning hours. I told the resident manager, turns out this person was her friend and I was told what a nice person she was blah, blah, blah. Listen at 3:00AM in the morning when I have to get up at 5:00AM I don't give a s@@@ how nice you are turn your f@@@@ stero down!!! She always had an excuse for something.

                                              Don't come here

                                              We moved in on a rush decision while trying to get out of a bad roommate stuation. We took the walkthrough, and of course, the model and empty apartments looked fine. However, once we actually moved in, we got bugs. Ants, roaches, and the occasional cricket all come in through rotting sections in the baseboards. Most of it looks fine at first glance, but if you poke at it and move the carpet away, you can see the damage. We have told the office of the pest problem, and they hired an exterminator. However, this has not fixed the problem. In addition to doing very little while he is here, he often simply doesn't show up. We've also had a leaky air conditioning unit as well as a leaky water heater which flooded our storage and ruined some things we had in boxes. This leak in the storage room also wither caused or made us aware of the mold in that area, which we have had for at least two months now and has not been resolved. The management and maintence both seem to be understaffed, which would account for all the problems and the length of time it takes… See More>

                                                No longer feel safe after dark

                                                Our family moved in 2/10. The community was clean, the management was very nice and everything seemed perfect so we moved in. In July we noticed several men hanging around outside our building till the early hours of the morning... you can here them talk about the different charges they have had (very scary consider one was talking about kidnapping charges). On the seventh of Aug my husband and I expressed how we did not feel safe and gave him the apartments numbers that it seemed like these men were comming from. The soon to be manager stated we should call the poliece when we see them with weed, or up disturbing the peace and so on. I told him we needed a courtsey patrol but stated he would have to let go of a couple of employees to do so and did not feel it was worth it or that we had a problem. Well I'm sad to say just a few days later a young woman was shot and killed by her boyfriend that was not authorized to live in the apartment.
