We are owners who visit family in the San Diego area five or six times a year. The Welk Resort never disappoints, and improvements to the property are making it better and better. This is a wonderful place to stay, whether to relax and enjoy the resort, or visit any of the many attractions in the area. The staff try... More

We were there at the resort for a week in April 2015. The resort has many amenities and is family structured. We ate several meals in their restaurant and found it to be reasonable and very good. Our trip was to visit the attractions in San Diego and while the resort was a little remote, it met our needs. We... More

We stayed at the Welk Resort April 13-18. This is a wonderful resort that has plenty of awesome features. My wife and I are Marriott owners in multiple locations. We always look for, and expect, high quality from 5 star resorts like Welk. Overall, this is a terrific time share resort. First, the good stuff. The facilities and grounds are... More

We visited from Michigan on a gifted week from friends. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the villa. Being spring break week the pools were expectedly crowded. My son was disappointed with the essentially non operational splash pad near our pool, and the mountain pool one was completely closed. For spring break it seems that those should have... More

Room was clean but dated. Parking is major issue. Too much noise - not well insulated: hear upstairs guests walk like elephants, flush toilets. Had to call security due to lock-off neighbors partying after 10:30. No elevators anywhere except building where they sell timeshares. Housekeeping noisy - allow door to slam when coming & going; also saw PDA by Welk... More

I did time share trade and was not sure what to expect out of my three kids (11, 11, 9) and my adventure, yet have to say was much better than expected and really great! This resort is huge!! I do know who Lawrence Welk was and I expected more of a geriatric set. I was so wrong - there... More

My family and I recently returned from a week long stay at the Welk Resort San Diego. We chose the resort for its proximity to the sites of San Diego, affordability, spatious accomodations and the scenic and warm mountain locale. The resort is a bit of a drive to many of the sites in San Diego, however, the warmth and... More

However I can say that this year we really enjoyed our stay. Our 2-bedroom condo was recently remodeled and the new interiors and furnishings look great. The condo was very clean... More
