This was the 2nd Welk property that I have visited with the other being Escondido/San Diego. To say I was not impressed would be an understatement. The place looks like an old hotel that was converted to timeshares. The location of the resort is another problem as I would say that it is located in the "armpit" of the Palm Springs area. The average age of resort guests was about 70 years old and they seemed to be annoyed with any children playing in the pool area. The only positive was the resort staff. Each and every member I had contact with was extremely helpful and went out of their way to make sure every thing was done right. I would definitely look for other options in the area.
