We stayed in a 3 bedroom/2 bath condo. It was clean and fully equipped. The beds were comfortable. We used the free shuttle service to get to the village and the rec center. Kids and adults had a great time swimming, relaxing in the hot tub, playing pickle ball, roller skating, and dining in the village.

Luxury! We loved the condo. Lots of top of the line amenities, such as all Cuisinart small appliances and J.A. Henckels cutlery. The kitchen is stocked with full sized glasses, wine glasses, coffee cups, etc. unlike 2 of the other Welk resorts I've stayed in. Those have small everything. Small plates, glasses, etc, and small washer and dryer. Northstar has... More

This property was originally built as a Hyatt Residence Club, so the design and quality are top-notch. Keep in mind, these are luxury condos and is not really operated as a hotel, so it lacks some of the amenities as a luxury hotel. Although the staff is super friendly and helpful, I think the jury is still out on the... More

We spent a week at Northstar Welk Resort. Awesome resort. Beautiful accommodations, well equipped, plenty of activities. We were there with kids and granddaughter. Everyone had a great time. It was the week of July 4th and except for July 3 and 4 wasn't very busy. Northstar village is in walking distance.

We decided to go to Northstar to get out of the valley heat. This was our first visit and we were very impressed with the size of the unit. We had a 2 bedroom, unit 2310 overlooking the pool. The kitchen was large with full size upscale appliances, and well stocked. They even provided coffee canisters filled with coffee. The... More

Being a world class traveler I don't get impressed that easily, but this place was amazing! The rooms are huge, clean and beautiful. My 3 year old and I took a breathtaking nature hike. Fitness center and pool were superb. Can't wait to come back during the winter months!

High pressure sales tactics. This company is a joke and has about the worst customer service I've experienced - they really don't care. They convinced me and my wife to do a tour in exchange for disneyland tickets and hotel and were assured that we'd be given the tickets after completion of the tour. Cool. Well - we made a... More

Although this resort is mostly a ski resort, and all shops and restaurants were closed, we were very disappointed at the cleanliness of our room in the "Village." The rug had not been vacuumed and we made sure we didn't walk around without our slippers on. We also put a bath towel buy our beds. There were cracker crumbs under... More
