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...

We have been owners since 2008 and love relaxing at the Welk Resort in Escondido (San Diego), California. Everything about Welk's, in our opinion, is a Five Star Rating, from the staff, the grounds, the food in the Canyon Grill Restaurant, the activites planned, and especially, the quality of productions in the Lawrence Welk Theatre. Our stays have always been...

We had the pleasure of staying for 15 nights at the Welk Resort in San Diego. It was a very relaxing time and, especially this last week with cooperative weather, we were able to enjoy the outside. There are many more positives than negatives about this resort. Here are a few of the good points to start with: Welk is...

This was a staycation for us, since we live close by, and my husband still had to get to work. We were both very impressed! We were in the newer Mountain Villas way up top and couldn't have been happier. Make sure to get any room on the 2nd or 3rd floor though for a fantastic view, as we met...

We have just begun our stay at the resort and unfortunately I wish we had spent our money somewhere else. If you are a young family travelling to the San Diego resort, be aware of the MANY rules that surround the water slide...especially if that is a highlight you are looking forward to. We are so disappointed. We specifically sourced...

Lovely and well-appointed, clean, excellent service. Close to San Diego, nice golf course. Rooms were very clean, modern, and contained everything needed for comfort. Hotel employees were very friendly and helpful. The best surprise was a farmer's market on the grounds with fresh food and craft vendors.

Reviewed 25 February 2015 via mobile

The one bedroom apt where we stayed was very nice. Comfortable bed with alot of extra lines on hand. The kitchenette was fully furnished right down to dishwasher soap. My only disappointment was a lack of privacy in the bathroom. A mandatory cross thru from bedroom to living room made it such. Other than that we would stay once more.
