First piece of advice is that if they tell you on check in that you are in Cascade 3918, ask for a room change! It's dark, gloomy and in a block where they constantly show people around. My review of this resort may be a little harsh but it is partly related to the massive build up that the 'I'm... More

We stayed in the mountain villas, clean and updated. Stairs were odd instead of an elevator but we made it work. Beautiful view off balcony of the golf course and mountains. Pools were clean and many activities to participate in. Overall we liked it and would come back. Check in easy

Last time we stayed, I stepped on a fish hook in our room and contacted multiple people at the resort. I was disappointed in the time it took for anyone to really get back to me after the incident and I was assured they would do what they could to ensure a smooth visit the next time. So as the...

90 min. Turned on 6 hrs (not kidding) all because they cannot take NO for an answer. Almost felt as if we were being held against our will. Salesman was nice until we declined, didn't even get a goodbye from him and turned the other way when I had eye contact. Got the Auditions Package after all, it felt as... More

I will preface this review by saying that my husband and I are long-time owners at Welk Resort and therefore do not go to the "presentations". We've been to a few over the past years and were very dissatisfied. They tell you they're going to just give you an update of what's new, which would be fine, but once they... More
