Reviewed 25 March 2015

I booked a week in Escondido on the strength of a friend's recommendation. My husband reluctantly agreed to go. We love the beaches of Southern California but can't afford the beachside resorts. My husband was so embarrassed by the old timer Welk name that he insisted on keeping our destination secret. From the moment we checked into our large well...

We just returned from 5 days at this resort. We were very happy with our stay all around. Our delux villa at pelican hill was immaculate- very clean and well maintained. The mattress we slept on was very comfortable as well. The new pool at the mountain resort was nearly empty every morning at 9:30 and we enjoyed having it...

We read the reviews before we went and were concerned that the hotel might not be updated. However we were pleasantly happy with our suite. Nicely updated, fireplace, spa tub, full kitchen, washer and dryer and a view of the golf course. Perfect for a young family. The pools were fun (although not heated), some of the club houses and...

We are timeshare owners through Marriott and we exchanged through Interval International to stay at the Welk Resorts. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a very nice resort nestled in the mountains! We stayed in Melody Hill in a two bedroom two bath condo. The kitchen is huge and modern with virtually all the items one would need to...

This place is just so wholesome. Well maintained. Well appointed decor and kitchen amenities. We had a "third floor walk-up" which could have been some important information to pass on prior to packing for the week. The parking for our building was across the street. And, no crosswalk. Actually, there really isn't much in the way of traffic. Golf carts...

We recently spent 3 days on the property in a 2 bedroom unit in the Harmony Hills section and it was stunning. Perfectly decorated and laid out. We were 6 and had more than enough room.

This resort with its beautifully scenic and lush greens carved out of mountains and trees played the perfect backdrop for our Spring break. The pools and water slide kept the family cool on those warm enough days. Staff was very friendly and had no complaints with the amenities. (We roomed at the newer Mountain Villas.)

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.
