Top notch service and professionally appointed, the Welk Escondido is always first class. The Villas on the Green are not the newest condos of this beautifully appointed property, but they are still stylish and comfortable. This little destination is a world away from the noise of the city, yet super close to so many Southern California desirable destinations. We had a condo on the second story across from the pool. The upside? The view from the master balcony facing the golf course and gorgeous mountains. The downside? Hauling condo goodies for the long week up the stairs and then luggage and remainders back DOWN upon checkout. (Don't know how they get away with this because of the ADA??) Best thing about the room: the super comfortable and spacious bed with European bedding and luxurious sheets. Worst thing? No elevator~! Friendly concierge service and helpful staff all over the property with a lot of activities and amenities, there were many more positives than this one little negative to our short but beautiful stay during the Temecula Balloon and Wine Festival. (Bell hop service is not available, so be sure you are prepared to haul luggage. Sadly, no bell cart is available for self service. Parking usually includes walking quite a distance; however, dropping a partner off with luggage and food items close to the condo is an option.)

Room Tip: Request a condo unit with an elevator if assigned to a second story room

our family spent four days at the welks in escondido and it was really relaxing. The resort
is excellent and the staff very friendly. Best place for a vacation to get away from the busy life of the big city. Cant wait to go back

We had a great weekend with our grandaughters. We enjoyed the special activities for them and, of course, the wonderful swimming pools. We ate at the resort and were very pleased with our menu choices and the children's menu choices. We staff was very good at making us feel welcome. Thanks for the great time.

We were supposto to check in at 4 we did not get our room until 8pm. They were rude and did not care at all! Room carpet were stained and as dirty as can be! Pool is nice but cold! They did not allow you to bring food or drinks in the pool! Over all I would never go there again or recommend it to my worst anmy! Hated their costumer service! Sorry they had no costumer service...

Stayed here by default thanks to a tennis tournament and the horse races. So glad we did!! If you have children, this is THE place. So much to do for all ages. Several pools to choose from. Our small boys--(5 and 3) loved the ones with the slides and water parks. Other activities, a store, restaurants, Pizza Hut all on site. Very clean, spacious and comfortable rooms. Loved the shower!!

The Welk Resort was located near San Diego and provided us a nice place to stay (rooms were clean and neat) that was located near many things. If you want to be on the beach of San Diego, this is not the place for you. We had trip almost every day: Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Coronado, La Jolla, and more. It was easy to get on and off the highway and was close to most locations. As a resort itself, it has a nice pool area and a pretty firepit to sit around if you swim at night. Overall, I thought the place was nice although I may have liked it closer to a beach. Also, the timeshare people there use a HARD SELL -- very pushy and condescending if you don't want to buy. They will keep you for hours so beware. The was the only big negative of the trip.
