Very large designated two bedroom unit in the "Annie" building, first floor.  Nicely appointed and renovated in the last few years. It is starting to fray at the edges though not too badly. Bedrooms were both the same size.  Master has a king whereas the second bedroom has two fulls. Both bedrooms and the living room had large slider doors... More

We booked this trip 6 months ago as an Interval Exchange and grew quiet worried as we read some of the comments. We had a great, clean, freshly painted unit. The mattresses had tags dated 2010 and looked like they were pretty new. Maybe we lucked out with an updated unit, but didn't see any bugs or mold at all.... More

This is a great family timeshare/vacation rental resort. Great amenities! Pools, water slides, hot tubs, rec centers, activities, theater, the works. Here comes the but... The units (that we were in at least) smelled. In our first 'villa' at check in, there was a terribly musty odor to the point that we requested a room change. The 2nd unit (top)... More

Top notch service and professionally appointed, the Welk Escondido is always first class. The Villas on the Green are not the newest condos of this beautifully appointed property, but they are still stylish and comfortable. This little destination is a world away from the noise of the city, yet super close to so many Southern California desirable destinations. We had... More

our family spent four days at the welks in escondido and it was really relaxing. The resort is excellent and the staff very friendly. Best place for a vacation to get away from the busy life of the big city. Cant wait to go back

We had a great weekend with our grandaughters. We enjoyed the special activities for them and, of course, the wonderful swimming pools. We ate at the resort and were very pleased with our menu choices and the children's menu choices. We staff was very good at making us feel welcome. Thanks for the great time.

Stayed here by default thanks to a tennis tournament and the horse races. So glad we did!! If you have children, this is THE place. So much to do for all ages. Several pools to choose from. Our small boys--(5 and 3) loved the ones with the slides and water parks. Other activities, a store, restaurants, Pizza Hut all on... More

The Welk Resort was located near San Diego and provided us a nice place to stay (rooms were clean and neat) that was located near many things. If you want to be on the beach of San Diego, this is not the place for you. We had trip almost every day: Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Coronado, La Jolla, and more.... More
