Fantastic resort nestled in the hills of Escondido. Convenient to all San Diego attractions, but all your time could be spent right there. Staff was 5 Star! No pressure to buy, which is uncommon amongst RCI properties. Very refreshing.

Hotel's Favorite
Awesome resort amenities and immaculate, beautiful grounds...expertly maintained. We stayed in a lower level two bedroom in the Volare building and couldn’t have asked for a better location to enjoy our 2 and 4 year old granddaughters. They loved playing on the grass and walking around the fish pond just across the street. They also loved climbing on the rocks by the pond. Because they were sick some of the week, we did not do the pools but would have taken a car or asked for a golf cart to the Boulder recreation area where the slide and amenities looked like the mist fun. The pool right by us on Harmony Hill was ok but didn’t have a slide. Basketball court and an area recreation center were right there, though. This resort is huge and you won’t be able to walk to everything but they have a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes or so and you can request a golf cart taxi anytime. The condo was large and comfortable with 2 huge double sink bathrooms. These two- level buildings had 16 steps either up or down and the master bath with shower was a very high step in...but guest bathroom was a walk in shower. Very comfortable patio furniture with a gorgeous view. We’d definitely stay here again!

We visited a Lawrence Welk presentation for buying a Timeshare. We were promised a three day all expenses paid trip to Napa in exchange for listening to their presentation. We fulfilled our obligation and declined to purchase a timeshare. We received a voucher for the trip and after three years we have yet to have our trip request fulfilled. Each time they said to try again and we were getting closer. The last time they gave us the dates and then at the last minute the company that Lawrence Welk was using to fulfill the voucher went out of business. Since then, Welk has contacted us once in response to numerous phone calls and letters. We have yet to receive what we were promised. We kept our part of the contract but Welk has not.

Welk is a total SCAM! My friend and I both attended a timeshare promotion for 120 minutes-actually longer-over three years ago. We thought we would attempt learning about timeshares. We both have very flexible work schedules-we submitted all the appropriate paperwork to go to Hawaii. Three years later and over three changes of Welk's designated promotional companies and NO trip was provided despite a deposit between $150-$200. Total SCAM-contacted Welk many times and have been told would bet back to me-never have! Don't go to WELK-LIARS and THIEVES~

We are Welk owners and have stayed here many times. I was here this time because my mom was sick again. I have a difficult time getting wifi/reception on my cell phone here. I have AT&T. Since it was imperative I could be in contact with my dad during this time, I asked to be moved to another room. The staff accommodated me and let me move to a room that I could get better reception. My room was clean and the hotel staff was nice.
