4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The resort is centrally located - not too far from the attractions in San Diego and not too far from the beaches. There are numerous pools, walking paths and of course golf. The unit was very clean and well-stocked. We had a 1 bedroom with washer/dryer and a good-sized balcony - table, 4 chairs and 2 lounge chairs. The Internet... More

A little disappointing for our first visit. Unable to tour other villas, is always someone else's department, several issues with our room, and even with checking in. Wi-Fi is horrible. On the positive side very Family friendly pools. Good food and many activities the the kids.

My wife and I have stayed here four years in a row. It's true it's not close to any major attractions in San Diego, but that's part of the allure. You are practically forced to relax, play some golf, read, or just unwind for a week, which is usually what we need. We found the staff to be friendly on... More

Trying to check in early sucks. They let you go to the pool where you can't bring in food or drinks and the "grill" is super expensive. To feed 3 it cost us almost 60 bucks and while we sit and wait while i know or room is empty, the food and drinks we brought to use in the suite... More

Amanda R, I apologize for the challenges you had with early check-in. Typically the front desk will have some refrigerator room to store some of your food to make sure it doesn't go bad. We do have two restricted recreation areas in regards to food and drink where we have food and drink available. We also have three other recreation... More

He provided a warm and friendly atmosphere and let us sample some great beer that was brewed locally. I have been coming to this resort fir over 20 years and... More

Spent 3 nights at the resort with my family. They have great amenities at the resort but, pools were great and they have splash pads for kids and water slides. Multiple activities all day long at reasonable prices. Nice units. The problem I had was with the resort's customer service. Check in lines after we pre checked in took 30... More

I was impressed with the property and all it had to offer. The 2 bedroom apartment was clean and pleasing to the eye. Friendly and helpful staff. There's no need to leave the property, there is so much to do right there. Minor complaints were the need to cancel my spa appointment. The 24 hour cancelation notice wasn't explained over... More

We visit every year. This time we found on the Welk's Instagram, info on the weekend beach trip. We had so much fun with our guides, Sofia and Paul. They shared about local food favs for lunch. The trip was to Carlsbad beach which was within walking distance of the Village area. Even if you don't go to the beach,... More
