“Quiet Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

Stayed here for 1 week in late February. Good directions so easy to find, check-in was farily swift plenty of staff available and no real pressure to attend selling talk made although we were told if we didn't decide there and then we would get any of the free gifts. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa in the new Mountain lodge of the resort which was well away from the main area but still had a good sized pool and jacuzzi with fresh pool towels every visit. The apartment we had was in the basement so not too much light coming in although the master bedroom had a patio with a couple of chairs so you could sit outside. Lovely fireplace up by the pool so that it was nice to sit there in the early evening watching the sunset.
Apartment was modern with good decoration throughout kitchen well-equipped and excellent bathroom.
Resort is located 35 miles north of San Diego, but it was an easy drive down to the city which we did on at least 4 occasions and also good road across to the coast toward La Jolla which is a lovely town to visit.
Plenty of things to do in the area and there is a gold course and theatre at the resort plus a couple of restaurants.

Room Tip: The Mountain Villas are modern and very well presented away from the main area so quiet definitely...

We love the Welk resort. It's our home away from home when visiting our family in the San Diego area. And the grandkids love to come over to "our place" to swim and play.

Stayed April 2012

Recently stayed at the Welk Resort in Escondido (40 minutes northeast of San Diego CA) and enjoyed it very much. The resort is exceptional clean and comfortable. It houses a theatre and restaurant, along with a couple small shops. The common areas, pools, hot tubs and golf courses are great. We certainly would return again.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the golf course had nice large patio and good views

We had a great family spring break at the Welks, the grounds are beautiful and the pools are great, plenty to do if you want to hang out all day. I was worried about being 40 minutes from down town San Diego but it worked for us. We could not find a good resturant in Escondido so we ate diner in our room most nights, the full kitchen made that easy to do.

The farmers market on Monday night was great, plan on finding great prepared food to eat that night!

Room Tip: Request a room on the third floor that is not a lock off unit, they do not have a full kitchen.

We stayed in the new Mountain Villas. The furniture, fixtures and and appliances were all great.
Daily activities for the kids and fantastic pool area. Golf right there is fun. 18 hole par three and an executive course, all in good shape. The on site restaurant has a funky look to it but the service and food was very good and reasonably priced.
I have stayed in each different area of the resort and have been happy each time. Had a slight problem when we went to go to our Villa and the unit was occupied. They sent someone right away and got us into an even more appealing unit. Close enough to the beach and San Diego.

Room Tip: New Mountain Villas are the Best.
