We've been traveling to Desert Oasis the first week of the year for over 25 years. We sought a change of scenery two years ago and regretted it. There is excellent service and a real desire to please. Good beds and plenty of room. It has also been upgraded in the last two years. A welcome surprise is the excellent...

Upon arrival was pleased but that ended there! My expectation was not met. Was told at desk there is an elevator, there is not. When expressing we will not sit in on a timeshare talk, we were dismissed. No laundry in unit .. there is a coin operated laundry room for the entire complex. Have stayed at other Welks Resorts...

This location is in the middle of every where! Very attentive people making sure they meet your expectations. Quiet between rooms and hall way. Worth your time to try it out. Golf course took a hit from the rainfall but after a couple days they had it back open. A very nice facility with two pools. Spoke with two people...

I am an owner at this resort, first time share I ever bought. Not too many upgrades are in place as I have not been here for about ten years. The bedsheets do not fit the bed which I thought was odd. They come untucked at the headboard, and your feet touch the bedpad if you stick your feet down...

The condo is furnished nicely and it has a nice kitchen. Pool area is great. Near lots of restaurants and stores. Must have a car though. Love this place! Staff is very friendly and helpful. They are a timeshare but they don't push after you have said no.

When we checked into the resort we should have been advised that the resort is not in a gated community and therefore vehicles and recreational items are subject to theft or vandalism. 3 days into our stay our 2 mountain bikes were removed from my bike carrier with bolt cutters. Another guest also had his bike stolen the same night....

Just spent a week here. We exchanged into this resort for a one bedroom which we liked very much. It was clean and comfortable but what we enjoyed the most was the balcony which looked out onto the golf course and mountains. If the view is important to you, make sure to get a unit on the back side as...

Has everything you need with a boutique resort feel. Pleasent dessert surroundings with a wonderful pool and hot tub. I would choose to bring my family back for a getaway with games rooms, etc... More amenities that I could not take advantage of in my short stay...

We spent a week at one of the tonier resorts in Palm Desert and while Welk isn't as new or surrounded by lush landscaping, it is very laid back and comfortable. It has many amenities that those more expensive resorts don't have: large walk-in closets and lots of storage for clothing and food, mid-week cleaning and daily trash pick-up, real...

It started in the first hour, when i opened the dresser drawer to unpack and a cricket jumped around in the drawer. That was the first of about 20 crickets we saw in the room over five days. Pretty bad, but the worst was yet to come. I was sleeping in bed and all of a sudden I woke up...
