We stayed a week in Mid-March in a 2 bedroom resort. The resort was beautiful! Our suite was spacious, well appointed and nicely decorated. It was extremely comfortable. We had an outdoor seating area where we relaxed, looked at the mountains and the golf course at breakfast and after dinner each evening! The facilities were great as well! We are...

Loved the pools, activities which a few had fees but were great prices. Can't beat $4 to make your own Sundae! 2 golf courses! Several pools, water slides, splash pads,...

We booked a 2 room unit on our exchange program. The unit we were assigned was in the Torres Pine building. Although it is in the oldest section, it was closest to all the amenities we wanted. The mini market with Starbucks and restaurant as well as the theatre for live shows were less than 5 minutes away. They also...

Stayed in the Mountain Villas at Welk for a week and really enjoyed our unit. It was a one-bedroom but very spacious, clean, and modern. The kitchen was very large and well-supplied, as was the bathroom. If you are planning to stay there, avoid buildings Boulder Peak, Olympus, and Matterhorn. Their patios face west and are unusable in the afternoon...

Absolutely nothing about my visit to the Welk Resort for the presentation turned out to be true. Around every corner was a 'fee' that they so casually mention that you have to strain your ears to catch it. What was to be a 90 minute presentation was double that and the gifts were laughable. The tablet offered was not on...

As timeshare owners we love staying at the LWR . We spent 1 full week in a 2 bedroom villa over looking the grapevines,golf coarse and entrance. Top floor which is now our favorite. By far our favorite type of accommodation and location. It provides a bright and sunny large living area with open concept kitchen and breakfast bar. 2...

We stayed in a two-bedroom-villa in the "Resort" area of the development. Our building was called "Tangerine" and is located on a hill not far from the Check-in office, the restaurant, market and Pizza Hut. Beautiful views of the surrounding hills, golf course and a small lake. Contrary to the older "Villas on the Green" the Resort villas stretch out...

Amazing event Welks Resort made to celebrate this Saint Patrick's day! Well organized and very fun for all ages. The downside was that the food was cash only. The Jon Bon Jovi cover concert was one of the high points! Congrats Welks

Escondido is a beautiful city and the resort on the outside is also. My family and myself then entered our "condo" and was immediately met with broken things all throughout the house; 2 of the 3 TVs did not work, the diswasher handle was broken thus very hard to open, the shower door was off the track so we could...

We stayed at the Welk Resort with another adult couple who had traded in one of their timeshares for this one and found it very pleasant. The two-bedroom condominium was spacious and while the furniture felt a bit outdated, it was comfortable and had all the amenities of home. The kitchen was huge and we enjoyed cooking one evening as...
