Conveniently located between LA and San Diego, this is a good jump off place to go both north and south to beaches and attractions. Several area airports are within reasonable commute to the resort. The resort itself is attractive and beautifully maintained, set in serene, relaxing mountains in a quiet valley, in a park-like atmosphere that offers golf and appealing and plentiful pool areas for families and adults-only. The resort provides informal dining options including a major pizza chain and a sit-down restaurant, a small convenience store, and an intimate theater for live stage events. We thoroughly enjoyed a performance of Chicago. The actors' voices were strong and impressive. Our 2 bedroom condo-style unit at Villas on the Green slept 8 and also offered the option of cooking in our full kitchen or cooking out on a new, daily-serviced grill bordering the golf course, to be shared by the 3 buildings around our personal "green." These units also shared a small enclosed hot tub, welcome after a long day on our feet touring the area. Inside, though our unit had not yet been refurbished in an on-going project, the decor and facilities were perfectly maintained, comfortable, and instantly Wow! Coffee on our private patio facing the golf green and mountains was my favorite way to start and end every day. However, if you plan to spend most of your time actually in San Diego (the Zoo, Sea World, etc.), be prepared for up to an hour or more commute to and from the city, depending on your destination and timing. Welk Resort was just what my family needed. I would stay here again in a heart beat!
