Had a very nice stay. Only thing I would change is selling adult Beverages at the adult pool, other than that it's a nice place. Canyon Grill is priced reasonable and the maintenance staff was very prompt and helpful. If you like to golf this is the place greens are in first rate condition and the golf balls have dimples.

They need to give people what they are requesting--the return of the Sunday buffet. Lawrence Welk's motto for success was to"give the people what they want". I witnessed a customer leaving when he found out that the Sunday buffet was no longer offered. I also noted that the restaurant is not filled as it was before.

My family came here to visit friends . We enjoyed our entire day. The pools were clean and cold, food was great . We got lost a few times and staff weren't exactly able to help with that ...but otherwise we had a great stay . Kids had a BLAST !

The rooms are very nice and so are the amenities. Good for seniors but also has kids running around. gotta make a buck I guess. Bring your trunks and be ready to have a good time. Should probably have a couples only spot for more intimate times....

This is a beautiful, somewhat dated resort. The setting is fabulous and the apartments are roomy and well-appointed. Our place was very, very comfortable for a week-long visit. Our apartment was on the level that regard no stairs, either up or down, and since there are no elevators, "no stairs" becomes a real advantage. The on-site restaurant, Canyon Grille, was...

We have been coming here annually for several years. Love the amenities, Villas (not the new and more crowded side) and things are well cared for, but this year the wifi was really bad. So bad it reminded me of "dial up". Expected to have the usual hair care products in the room,but they were missing so forced a trip...

Very, very nice lodging. Golf course is perfect for seniors at about 4500 yards. The golf course for an executive course is maintained extremely well. Very nice scenery and a great course for couples. You do not have to stay at the resort to play golf there.

Our family visits the Welk Resort, San Diego, for a full week every July. We acquire four villas and spend half of our time at the resort and half visiting other attractions from San Diego to Temecula, farther north. The resort is ideal for families with sufficient attractions at the resort and in the general area to make us plan...

We traded our time share through Interval International for a one-bedroom at Welk Resorts in Escondido, CA. We were very impressed with the entire complex--with all its pools, clubhouses, golf course, top-notch fitness center, theatre, and much more. We went in May so there weren't large numbers of school-age kids. However, it would be a great place to bring a...
