Consider yourself warned: touring the Welk Resort for any sort of incentive is a scam. If it sounds too good to be true, it's because it is. You will be promised a short presentation - it's not, we were there well over 4 hours and they wouldn't let us leave and were using our "gifts" as a way to keep...

This was a great place. We used it as a get away with our time share. So our price was cheaper. The unit's were great. Many amenities there were 5 pool's outside, but they are all heated to 80 to 81. Good for families. Golf and show's. We saw a Neal Diamond impersonator who was great. They also had My...

We traded though Interval for a week stay in a 2 bdrm unit in the older section of the resort. We had a unit on the top floor overlooking the golf course that was very roomy and had nicely updated bathrooms and a huge balcony. We appreciated being near the fitness center and adult only pool, and walking distance to...

Spent nearly 4 hours enduring the usual time share spiel in order to get the great free gift promised by the Welk timeshare booth at a local beer festival in San Diego. We opted for the 4 day Carnival cruise from Longbeach to Catilina Island and Encinatis Mexico. Did I say free? We read the fine print on the travel...

We recently visited Welk Resort again. We stayed in 3241 in Village on the Green which is a large 1 BR unit. One flight of stairs. Beautifully appointed, spacious unit. Good bed and pillows. Even the hide-a-bed was decent. Central a/c. Large deck. Even though the Village on the Green is more densely populated than our preferred villas on the...

Very nice resort. We booked as hotel not timeshare and we didn't get more coffee for second day. There were not many restaurants on grounds to choose from nor were there any close by. We even had racoons come visit our porch.

Presentation involves a tour of their latest facilities. What they don't tell you is if you stay in at the Villas in Escondido, you will not stay in those nice modern units. You will likely stay in their older units. And if you arrive in the evening you will be finding it difficult to navigate the curvy roads, especially if...

The Welk resort is a beautiful property with clean rooms and the kitchens are well equipped. The resort is set in the foothills of Escondido and the grounds are lovely. If you are a new owner and have just purchased or if you are a potential owner, you are treated like royalty. As far as the concierge and front office...

We just got home from a one week stay at Welk. We were in the Mountain Villas (the Olympus building), room 4812 and absolutely loved it. The building is very nice, I believe it's the newest on the grounds. We were given a room on the 1st floor, which we had to walk downstairs to get too (due to it...

What a pleasure to stay at this resort. A lot of activities for adults and children. Great workout facility and nice pools. The 2 bedroom condo had plenty of room with a great layout for two couples. Definitely will return.
