Upon arriving the room was beautiful clean and very much like the photos. Everyone that we came in contact with were great!!!. The view from my villa was great right off the golf course. Even with people down playing it was peaceful. Now the pools are great as well even my husband got in!!!!!. Fun times with the family.

We stay at the Welk Resort once or twice a year, since we have family in the San Diego area. The Welk Resort is a great place to stay anytime of the year with recreational facilities on site. Two of the pool areas are large and have a children's play area. There are also smaller pools, including one for lap... More

My Sister and her family own a time-share here, so they and planned a family vacation for us and our parents. We had adjoining rooms, which was convenient, and we were on the first floor, which made it nice for the kids to run in the grass and play. The rooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchens... More

Okay folks, I spent a solid week here with my family keeping a completely open mind, not paying attention to anything positive or negative regarding online reviews. So here's my take on my experience... Pros: Family atmosphere, spacious 2 bedroom layout Cons: Too many do's and dont's and extra cost for everything. I've been at 50+ resorts in my lifetime... More

It was our first time at Welk and we loved it! Kids had a lot of fun swimming at their pools and hanging out at rec center. The room was really nice and peaceful. The location is amazing, surrounded by gorgeous hills. The most beautiful sunsets and sunrises. We also loved local farmer's markets with fresh veggies and fruit.

Bad experience will never stay here again. No one would pick up the phone at the from desk and when I finally got through close to check out time at 10:00 am they would not give me more than 15 minutes to get out without a charge. Which I thought was completely ridiculous considering check in time is 4:00 pm.... More

This is a great resort. Very quiet area with nice amenities. Worth the short drive to other places. It has a lot to do right on the site. The dining options are good also. The Canyon Grille has lots of choices or there is a Pizza Hut Express as well. The shows that I have seen there have been fantastic.... More
