Staff is the worst (run from this place!). They are unethical, discriminatory, rude and unprofessional just to start. They don't address the bugs in their units nor on the property, don't fix problems, raise rent by $200 each term which is over $3000 per month and… See More

Thank you for taking the time to post your honest feedback. I do want our residents to be proud to call Playa Pacifica their home, and so I read every review posted about our community. It is important to know where our residents think we missed the mark, as well as where we have done well - so that we can improve Playa Pacifica for everyone. If appliances are not functioning we replace them immediately. We always as that residents submit a maintenance request if something is not working properly. Additionally, mold complaints are handled immediately by our maintenance team when reported. The laundry center machines can be repaired quickly by our vendor. If you have an issue, please enter a service request online. Our staff is always happy to assist our residents in any way we can. I am sorry you have had a negative experience, and I would be happy to discuss any of your concerns with you. You may contact me any time at [email protected] or at (310) 374-4539.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. The team and I at Playa Pacifica do take the time to read every review, and use the information to grow, make changes, and improve our community for everyone. As for your concern about pricing, we do adjust rates to best reflect the current market value for the types of apartments available. These rates can fluctuate daily, and we do our best to communicate rate changes to residents during the renewal process. We always do our best to address plumbing issues as they arise. Any problems can be submitted through the online portal, where they go directly to the Maintenance team. Regarding your motorcycle cover, please contact the office with a desrcritption so we can determine if it was turned in. We would be happy to discuss your concerns with you in person. Simply drop by the office, or contact me at [email protected] or at (310) 374-4539. Thank you.

The staff was so nice here, never had any issues. Great location so close to the beach and you can walk to everything. The building was terrible - noisy, plumbing problems (my apartment flooded 4 times), no washer and dryer, termites and roof leaks!
