We are timeshare owners through Marriott and we exchanged through Interval International to stay at the Welk Resorts. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a very nice resort nestled in the mountains! We stayed in Melody Hill in a two bedroom two bath condo. The kitchen is huge and modern with virtually all the items one would need to...

This place is just so wholesome. Well maintained. Well appointed decor and kitchen amenities. We had a "third floor walk-up" which could have been some important information to pass on prior to packing for the week. The parking for our building was across the street. And, no crosswalk. Actually, there really isn't much in the way of traffic. Golf carts...

We recently spent 3 days on the property in a 2 bedroom unit in the Harmony Hills section and it was stunning. Perfectly decorated and laid out. We were 6 and had more than enough room. Our pool and rec center were under renovation sadly but the bell hops transported us easily from our unit to various locations on site....

This resort with its beautifully scenic and lush greens carved out of mountains and trees played the perfect backdrop for our Spring break. The pools and water slide kept the family cool on those warm enough days. Staff was very friendly and had no complaints with the amenities. (We roomed at the newer Mountain Villas.)

The resort is away from population centers and nestled in the hills along I-15 7 miles north of Escondido. The Fountains Golf Course winds through the resort to provide a lots of green space to separate the villas. This green space, the heavily bouldered hills that are part of the property and bordering it and the nice landscaping provide a...
