Location is a bit isolated as nearest town is 12 miles away. Property was excellent modern well appointed and comfortable. We stayed a week in a one bedroom unit. Staff was excellent as we had a few minor issues with our unit and the response to those issues was outstanding. We were a couple but the place was great for... More

We are Welk owners. We have been wanting to stay at all of the Welk resorts. We thought that the resort would be closer to San Diego, but it really is in the desert. The resort is large. Has many different buildings to stay in. Three golf courses. Several pools. A community area with a restaurant, Pizza Hut, gift shop,... More

I was disappointed in the resort. For someone with any type handicap or limited use it is too spread out. I had an accessible unit. It was large and airy. But the toilet didn't work right, the lights over the bathroom sink didn't work last four days, the long dark hairs on floors and couch were disgusting. The views were... More

Enjoyed our stay here. The service was excellent. The views of the hills is breathtaking. A very central location to go south to see San Diego, to go visit the seashore, to go to the Safari Park or the Temecula vineyards. The location is really excellent!!!!

"A one - anna two." OK, no one under sixty will get that reference to Lawrence Welk, so let's move on. Second time staying here. If you're looking for golf, they have two courses. One is a par 3 course that is also set up for playing "golf" with a soccer ball. The other is a very short "regular" golf... More

On family vacation with two toddler. Kids really enjoyed Boulder playroom, playground and splash pad. But check in was unwelcoming, staff on site seemed not to know basic info. Mountain springs staff doing sales were unwelcoming. Unless you were there for a tour seemed not to care to help with the most basic questions. A shame really. So much potential.

We frequented my friend's timeshare at the Escondido property. We had a beautiful condo right on the golf course with a view of a lake on one side and mountains on the other. The bedrooms were spacious with very comfortable beds and views. The bathrooms afforded double vanities and large modern showers. The kitchen was roomy, well appointed with granite... More

Spent a week here and it was fabulous. A huge property with numerous pools, a restaurant, a workout facility with classes, a small market and golf (although I am not a golfer, I can't tell you much about the course). There is even an adult only pool where you can bring in your own food and drinks (including alcohol) since... More

My wife and I stayed at the Welk Resort for a week in the end of August. We had a pleasant and efficient reservations check-in process, which was a positive to start with.

Now to start, I don't want my parents to die, I'd rather they live forever. But when they do die, the first thing I'm doing is selling our timeshare! (I'm on it as a 3rd owner and dear God how I wish they hadn't bought it!) I've stayed at the Escondido one where we "own" twice now. Once by myself... More
