Stayed for a week as part of family vacation. Facilities were nice. Room was what we expected. Monday farmers' market was a nice touch. The only thing we wished for is a bit more organized activities. The offered activity seemed to be more limited than other resorts we have been to.

My husband and I stayed at this resort in May, 2014. The property itself is quite nice; grounds are well kept, there are several pools, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. It was great to have a full kitchen and access to the BBQ. Although we didn't participate in any, there were a number of activities available for all... More

We stayed on an exchange through Interval Int'l in "Welk Resort Villas". Called t ask whether we should book "Welk Mountain Villas" or "Welk Resort Villas" and they said WRV were the most recently renovated so take those. DON'T. They were nice, all granite, new-ish furniture, etc., but the Mountain Villas were UNBELIEVABLY gorgeous! So I can't be upset because... More

Although this is a timeshare owner's resort, it may be that non timeshare owners also can go there is they can afford the rental cost. This resort is around 43 miles from San Diego airport and fairly easy to get to especially if you have a GPS system. You will need this to get out from the airport through the... More

I've stayed at numerous time shares and this one came well recommended from family. I however did not have a great experience. Check in time is 4PM and that seems awful late. I arrived early after a very long drive, only to find out the room wasn't ready. Other hotels this doesn't ever seem to be an issue. The room... More

Went to see Oklahoma musical and had a great lunch there. Jud is very creepy but the musical was very good. Plan on 2+ hours to see - not including a meal. Easy parking and great seats. Again worth seeing. Weather was great, temperature just right.

When we booked the Welk Resort we really weren't sure what we would get. Lawrence Welk started this resort in the '80s. We thought that it would be tired, but not a chance. This place is as up to date and as current as it gets with the new Mountain View units just recently opened. There are 700 suites in... More

This resort is nice. It really does feel like you are in some remote location because of the mountain views. I am torn by this resort because the grounds are really beautiful but nothing is convenient. We stayed in two different villas. The first one was absolutely perfect and I completely recommend the Mountain View rooms if you do stay.... More

We have been very pleased with our stay! Rooms are modern. Lot to do on site with the marketplace Monday, fiesta Tuesday, Hawaiian night Wednesday, the musical theater (Oklahoma was running when we were here), not to mention the pools, workout facilities, game rooms, etc. There's lots to do within 15-30min of the resort with San Diego to the west...

My husband and I recently joined the Welk Resort and LOVE it! We have twin boys who are one. The pool area/water activity playground is perfect for our kids to run and around and get tired while my husband and I sit back and watch in a beautiful environment.
