We were in this resort over the Christmas/New Year time and the weather was not that great, but we had a wonderful time!! The location of the resort to San Diego is great. The lay out of the resort is pretty nifty. We were in a unit right on the gold course. We were able to spend time outdoors, play... More

My wife and I were given a stay at the resort for our anniversary. The first night was the Harmony Hill event with Chef Abraham. It was great. Food was excellent as were the drinks. It is a beautiful resort. On the downside, I would not recommend eating breakfast at the grill. Very pricy and the food was cold and... More

My husband and I exchanged into this resort through Interval International. The only rooms available were 1 bedroom lockoffs with a kitchenette in the Villas on the Green. We did not know what to expect, because since we became Timeshare owners we have only experienced staying in 2 or 3 bedroom units with a full kitchen. I looked on Youtube... More

We used our timeshare to take advantage of the nice SoCal weather in January. Had a very average stay and will not be coming back. First for the good: the resort is close to I15 which is fortunate because the resort is in the middle of nowhere. The resort is also close to the Safari Park which is a must... More

We came to Welk Resort in November 2014 for a very little additional fee, as my parents are timeshare owners at Marriott. (On a similar occasion, we visited the "Marriott Grande Vista" in Orlando, which we found excellent overall!) For the mentioned very small additional fee at the seemingly comparable Welk Resort at Escondido, we gladly accepted the rather off-coast... More

We stayed in 4 different villas during our two-week stay at the Welk Resorts: Christmas week and the week after New Year's. We are owners but we stayed using Interval International and upgraded both weekends to a 2BD Villa on the Greens and a 2BD Mountain Villa using points. The small 1BD Mountain Villa was very nice and cozy and... More

We can't say anything about the property other than our newish mountain villa. It was superb! It was really nice except for the crooked floor! I personally wouldn't have paid the contractor for that mistake. We stayed here for a family birthday. Everyone else was in the older accommodations and my hubby described them as a 'box", but I never... More
