This is more than a nice hotel. It is beautiful and kids will love! Stay away from time share. They kept me there 6 hours with 3 children! Then talked me into buying a trial year for $1000. There is no availability for any other resort! Everything they promised expired and couldn't talk to a human on the phone. I... More

I really tried to keep an open mind, but this was one of the worst vacation experiences ever! We got suckered into a 1.5 hour time-share presentation (our first and last), which turned into 4 hour presentation with the promise of staying another night for a lower rate. We didn't end up staying another night, even with the so called... More

Very well furnished several pool and water slides. The framers market on Monday was fun lots of good food and crafts. The views were beautiful as well as nice sized patio and furniture. Would definitely recommend.

We are still here and leaving tomorrow after a week. I came with two other women for a girls trip and we absolutely loved the resort. I did call in advance to request a renovated 2 bedroom on the second floor overlooking the golf course and was granted my request. Our villa was beautiful. Each bedroom had a full bathroom,... More

We have been members of the Welk organization for the past 14 years. We use the Escondido Lawrence Welk Villas as our primary vacation spot because it is close by driving standards and always meets our expectations of superb quality and service in all areas. Of course there are occasional minor maintenance problems, but that is expected with a resort... More

We needed to cancel a reservation and was told by a resort customer service representative that we would get a full refund. We did not. The resort reneged on the agreement their representative made and then denied that he had made it!. We wound up being charged $943,00 for a room we never foot in a cancelled appropriately. We were...

Just checked into my 2 bedroom villa at Welk Resort Villas (Applause building in Broadway Hill), and I've gotta say... a little underwhelmed. It's nice enough, but quite a few missing pieces. You can tell it's been a long while since they've renovated the bedrooms. The kitchen and bathrooms seem nice, but the furniture in all the rooms is very... More

Stayed here on a family vacation for my son 7th birthday with my boyfriend and his 3 year old daughter. At first I was told we would have a washer/ dryer, fireplace etc. however, when I confirmed a few days before the trip, I was told the room may or may not have these features- not a deal breaker but...

This property has everything. We brought our daughter there and my mom and everyone enjoyed it. There were many many things to do for all ages. The facilities were extremely clean and comfortable. We spent most of the time by the pool which is GREAT for kids. The slide was the most used.
