3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Traveled with teens and seniors this week. Grounds are nice and villas very clean and nicely apponted. Very low key atmosphere with the feel of an isolated compound with gated pools. Not a "resort" feel. You have to do your own cooking since there is only 1 restaurant and an expensive Pizza Hut ($14 for medium pizza plus $6 if... More

We stayed at a two bedroom villa on an exchange for a week. The place was well appointed and clean. It was also very spacious. The amenities were sufficient. We took day trips to San Diego, Temecula and other neighboring towns and always looked forward to coming home and relaxing at the resort. We will come back👍👍👍

Saw an excellent production of Cabaret at the Lawrence Welk Theater. For those who haven't been the theater is small (perhaps 500 seats), but this is the second time my wife and I have gone to see musicals there (first being Singing' In the Rain) and both have been first rate. I should say that I have seen Broadway productions... More

My husband and I spent three nights at the Welk Resort with our two goddaughters who are 8 and 11. We had a one bedroom unit. It was nicely furnished and had everything we needed. The bathroom was large and had a huge, huge shower. It had a tremendous amount of water pressure. Wonderful! The showerhead was one of the... More

This resort is beautiful with lots of activities for the children and the adults. I especially liked the fact that you did not have to drive. You can request a golf-cart shuttle and be taken to anyone of the several pools, shops, etc. The children loved riding in the carts. The drivers are very polite and accomodating. The resort is...

We love Welk Resort, Escondido! 7 heated pools, 5 clubhouses, great activities schedule, excellent theatre, great staff and well kept condos! We like all the lodging and you can go to all the pools/rec centers regardless of where you stay, but here are the differences: Welk Villas are the original units and they are big, beautiful and well layed out....

I had visited this resort before, but since then a lot of things have been changed and upgraded and it is so much nicer. This is the first time visiting in the summer and it was a little crowded (what isn't in July though) but it seemed to me that there was a lot more activities going on. I especially... More
