While on an extended stay in Las Vegas, we decided to visit California for the first time. The drive to the resort was not complicated, however, the traffic was horrendous. The views of the San Bernadino mountains were beautiful. The staff at the resort were gracious. The one bedroom accommodations were large and comfortable. The area was serene and climate... More

I never thought there was any reason to spend any time in and around Escondido, Calif. We had 3 days to kill and stayed at the Welk Resort. For many they have all of the things to keep you happy. We liked the closeness to The San Diego Safari Park. Then we discovered all the nice restaurant in the area.... More

Nestled along the I-15 in Escondido, between Temecula (wine country) and San Diego, this resort community is full of surprises! The resort has a brand new gym / recreation center that is nicely equipped with weights and treadmills, a rock wall, large outdoor pool, game room and two tennis courts. Garret was working the recreation center while we were there... More

The grounds were immaculate. The golf course(s) seemed to kept in very good condition although I did not play. HOWEVER, this is definitely a place for families with small children. Small children and teens overwhelm everything here and as parents no longer parent you can imagine how fun that is.

Me and my family come here all the time. It is just absolutely wonderful, with its cleanliness, calmness, and a feeling that just welcomes you with kindness. You could honestly go there with no plans at all and still have a splendid time. Furthermore, there are different places you could go that are not far like Lego land and Sea... More

Stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the place and proximity to attractions. Off I15 but nestled into surrounding hills. Several pools, gym and activities to do everyday of the week. Clean modern rooms with helpful staff. Part of our timeshare club, would stay again and recommend it.

We have been here five times and always find everything to be in top shape. The only drawback is that this resort is a long way from any store so a car is almost mandatory although a small food store and a restaurant are on the property. It has a top notch executive golf course. And of course there is... More

We stayed there because of a special offer, and thought it was a good opportunity to explore not only San Diego, but parts of Southern California that we had never visited. Because of these plans, we did not take advantage of the many activities and amenities the resort had to offer, but we could see that many retirees, families with... More

We loved this place. Went there with friends and family. We had enough room for two families in one 2 bdr condo. There were plenty of amenities and activities for the kids... and they loved the pool and Rec rooms. Highly recommend. :-)
