I enjoyed this resort, even though they were working on two of the pools. The pools that were open were just fine and the kids had a great time. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. The location for this resort is perfect and the the weather is better there than in San Diego. Casinos are close by if you... More

Treated completely different from all other guests we observed in our 2 hour wait for a room that was not ready at check in time. Visiting family in Bonsall. Upsell for condo...was told that an engaged gay couple was not eligible. Relationships were not questioned for ANY other people there. If they don't realize it, there are many gay diners... More

If you're there with the kids, other then the San Diego Safari Park Zoo, all of the kids activities, beach and theme parks are 30 - 60 minutes away. If you like to dine out, the restaurants in the area are very limited, the o.k. casual places to eat are about 10 - 15 minutes away but for anything a... More

We used interval to trade for a small 1 bedroom unit in the Mountain Villas. The rooms are nice with a King bed in the master, a limited kitchen, living/dining room combination, and 1 full bathroom. The mountain villas seem to be the newest buildings on the property and have a "lodge" feel to them. There is no daily housekeeping,... More

Stayed with friends who own a timeshare here, and we've been here several times. As others noted, there is some construction going on & pools are a bit crowded, but not overly so. Our unit was well appointed and looked out directly onto the BBQ's. Bed very comfy. Only downsides were air conditioning didn't work too well and Internet is... More

As always, Welk resorte took care of my husband and I. The room was spacious and clean, our balcony view was so peaceful, and the location to wineries and other attractions in San diego were amazing! Their food is delish, and all their employees were so sweet. Can't wait to go back 😄

The hotel is near the main roads but the closest place which we went was a minimum of 30 minutes away... clean, quiet, nice gardens and golf course. Cannot really fault the hotel... just the location, which may have been my fault for not researching.

My wife and I stayed here for a spring break vacation in San Diego, CA and stayed at the Welk Resort. It is a big property with very nice golf courses and very near a lot of great sites. The staff was always attentive and the buildings are well maintained.
