We stayed a week. Our 10 year old grandson was with us over MLK weekend. The weather was beautiful. We had a lovely week. My husband has a MAC and couldn't get connected to the WIFI. The signal was weak, but my PC connected OK. The rooms are spacious but in need of upgrading. The maintenance crew was prompt and... More

We made full use of the BBQ facilities and didn't have to worry about cleaning up afterwards; it was great. The rooms were very nice and comfortable and the patio was nice for hanging out. I loved seeing the mountains all around. The resort was a bit of a drive from San Diego but not too bad. We grew very... More

The employees at this hotel will do ANYTHING to SCAM you. I have a complaint pending with the Better Business Bureau. It's really empty out there; anywhere you need to go will be a lengthy drive. They appear to be kid-friendly, but their staff is completely rude & impatient with children. Additionally, I saw COCKROACHES in the rooms & in... More

Pools were very nice and something for everyone... More

After reading the reviews here on Trip Advisor before my visit to Welk Resorts, I was a little concerned about this timeshare property. We had booked this resort through expedia.com and found a great flight+hotel package that I could not pass up. I was excited about our first big family trip with a 3 year old and a newborn and...

I made my reservations in April for an exchange resort (Welk Resorts in san Diego). I hold a two bedroom unit for a week through Marriot. Interval talked me into getting into this downgraded one bedroom in Welk resorts and told me to check with the hotel periodically to see if the two bedroom units will be released. I was... More

We would like to apologize for any misunderstanding. Our owners deposit their weeks with Interval International based on the size villa they own. The resort has no control over the size villa or the exchange process. The transaction is confirmed through Interval International. The information regarding the floor plans and amenities of all our villas are on the Interval International... More

I was somewhat concerned when I read some of the negative reviews assosciated with this resort but we were able to book the time we wanted and obtain the lodging we desired for myself, spouse and six golfing friends. After staying there, I am convinced that either the reviewers who were so critical had written about a different place and/or... More

While the resort is equal distance from excellent wine tasting, San Diego attractions, and the Pacific ocean, this place is made to just relax. The weather is great, golf courses are not crowded, lots of pools available, and always engaging activities at the resort. We prefer the older two bedroom Lawrence Welk Resort Villas but all are nice, not real... More
