This resort is suitable for all ages. The facility is beautiful and has many activities from pools with waterslides to arts and crafts to musical theater. It's also centrally located to many amusement parks and beaches. And the gas lamp district for the party goers at night. I love this place that's why I bought time share through the Welk... More

Our trip was enjoyable! We traveled as a family of 4, my husband and I along with our two boys one 4 years old and the other 20 months. We planned our trip around Legoland and The San Diego Zoo, so it was great to find a place that was a good distance from both places. We originally looked into... More

We will NEVER stay at a Welk resort again. We own through I.I. and out timeshare in CO is mice though out the resort. Here at Welk... If you own you get a nice new villa, but if you exchanged you get a crappy suite that has not been redone in 15 years. So while their owners get your nice... More

There are many different "villas" in the resort; we stayed in the Welk Resort Villas and they were fantastic. The condo was 2 large bedrooms, 2 baths, full kitchen, with living and dining area. It was nice to have the kitchen so we were more at home and it felt less like a hotel. We had planned all our activities... More

I'm actually VERY surprised, by any and all of the low reviews of the Welk Resort. Not only did we get SPECTACULAR service - we signed up for the Time Share presentation (we were on an exchange from Interval International) and when they found out we had 2 kids with us - they gave us 2 tickets to Legoland and...

My family took this trip for my 70th birthday and there were 6 kids and 9 adults. We had 2 villas in Melody Hills and1 in Harmony Hills. These two are the ones you definitely want to request along with specifying refurbished units. They were very accommodating in giving us the 2 units side by side but the 3rd being... More

We chose this hotel based on location, near the San Diego Safari Park, our planned outing, and the online pic's of a great pool. We were treating our Grandchildren to a short get-away. My husband is mobility impaired and it is very apparent upon seeing him struggle to walk with assistance equipment. We arrived on a Monday at 1pm and... More

We love the Welk Resort here in San Diego. We have stayed at the Mountain Villas previously, and this time we stayed at the Villas on the Green. Beautiful view of the Golf course and mountains off our veranda. The one bedroom had everything we needed and was sufficient for our stay. We really enjoy walking the grounds of the... More

We stayed at the Welk Resort Mountain Villas in a 1-bedroom suite. It was attractively furnished and the perfect size for our family of four. The master bedroom had a king bed and the living room had a queen sleeper sofa. Both rooms came with wall mounted flat screen TVs. The kitchen was equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave, and... More
