4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Two bedroom, two bath condo on Melody Hill was excellent! Had a separated floor plan and two well stocked bathrooms along with a great open-air kitchen. Everything was clean, and check-in was a breeze. Many things to do for everyone, and the resort left great messages about what was going on several nights throughout our stay. Moderate sales pitch from... More

We stayed at the LW Resort and they are renovating two pools which led me to write a less than favourable review. The place is nice here, but the pools reportedly reach capacity at 11am, which is a nightmare. Also, they offer day passes to the pools and bbq's here, so they get quite an interesting crowd using the pool... More

Welk resort San Diego is about 45 minutes north east of San Diego, just north of Escondido. We stayed here at the new Mountain Resort (one of several sections of a 600 plus acre resort). The 1 bedroom we stayed in was very comfortable and well furnished with a gas fireplace in the living room and bedroom, a Jacuzzi type... More

The suite that we got was very nice, large and well appointed. The pools and other amenities are very nice. The place it between LA and San Diego. During the week... More

You must have a vehicle to be at this resort as everything is quite a distance from it. We stayed at the Villa's on the Greens. The living room furniture was dated, but the worst of it was that it was so dirty, we felt uncomfortable sitting on it. Two of the four pool area's were closed for maintenance while... More

Wonderful place for a family to spend spring break. The two bedroom units - most have been renovated just beautifully. Quality experience as usual. The availability of swimming pools, activities, just great. The Canyon Grill has upgraded. We ate breakfast there and it was great!

I booked a week in Escondido on the strength of a friend's recommendation. My husband reluctantly agreed to go. We love the beaches of Southern California but can't afford the beachside resorts. My husband was so embarrassed by the old timer Welk name that he insisted on keeping our destination secret. From the moment we checked into our large well... More

We just returned from 5 days at this resort. We were very happy with our stay all around. Our delux villa at pelican hill was immaculate- very clean and well maintained. The mattress we slept on was very comfortable as well. The new pool at the mountain resort was nearly empty every morning at 9:30 and we enjoyed having it... More

We read the reviews before we went and were concerned that the hotel might not be updated. However we were pleasantly happy with our suite. Nicely updated, fireplace, spa tub, full kitchen, washer and dryer and a view of the golf course. Perfect for a young family. The pools were fun (although not heated), some of the club houses and...

We are timeshare owners through Marriott and we exchanged through Interval International to stay at the Welk Resorts. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a very nice resort nestled in the mountains! We stayed in Melody Hill in a two bedroom two bath condo. The kitchen is huge and modern with virtually all the items one would need to... More
