We had a 1 bedroom unit in the Mountain Villas. We selected the Mountain Villas because we wanted to have the fireplace in the bedroom. The unit which was assigned to us had an inoperable fireplace in the bedroom. We were disappointed that they didn't tell us that the fireplace had been awaiting a part for repair. We wasted quite a bit of time with attempts by staff to repair it.
The unit was very large, including a well stocked kitchen (if you want to cook, we didn't), plenty of storage, a washer and dryer (no need to return home with dirty clothes), a 3 headed shower, jacuzzi tub,and 2 fireplaces.
There was no cell phone reception in the unit, and nearby outdoors. The free internet was appreciated , as we used skype.
The Canyon Grille restaurant , on the premises, offers a nice variety of foods at reasonable prices, and offers good service.
The fitness facility is poor. The cardio equipment is very limited, and can't serve the number of guests. There are two 24 Hour Fitness locations in Escondido which we use while staying at the resort.
The theater has always provided good entertainment for us.
San Diego is very accessible, and Escondido offers much to do. The resort is low density and has well maintained grounds.
We have also stayed in the Villas on the Green, and the Lawrence Welk Villa sections of the resort. The cell phone reception was good at both of those locations.
