"Awful resort for families"
July, 2018
We go ever year to San Diego and have an awesome family vacation. We stayed at legoland resort 3 times, stayed at holiday inn, and stayed other hotels at the hotel circle in San Diego and have had the best housekeeping and room service and there was always something beside the pool for the kids to do. So we thought since we always spend over 3k to try something different and stay at the welks resort since they photos showed all kind of things for families with kids to participate in. We had the worst time at the Welks Redort, will never go back and will never recommend it to anyone. First I’m handicap and the parking was awful, 8 villas and only about 12 parking spaces where in front of our villas and 90% of the times if we got there after 2pm we had to park far away from our Villa and park in the parking of another Villa’s court and walk with all 3 girls ages 8 and under, second no room service and no housekeeping, after paying over 3k we had to take our trash out ourselves and change our own bedsheets (it wasn’t a vacation it was like just being home) Third no good deliveries were allowed other then Pizza Hut , so your force to eat pizza or drive over 30 to 45 minutes to buy something to take back to your Villa and fight for parking so then you can sit and eat and relax, sorry but this place is for (hate to say it) old retired folks without kids that just
Want to stay in their villas and drink all day and night like both our neighbors. Our kids were so bored they couldn’t wait to go home and asked if next year we please not come back and stay at Legoland. You should have assigned parking, room service and housekeeping for everyone not only if you stay 5 nights (we stayed 4 nights) and you be allowed to have food delivered to your room and have activities for the kids. You are not cheap so why act like a cheap hotel and not make it easy for your guest to enjoy their stay.

The amenities were great and the staff at the entire resort was excellent. Very nice resort. Close to the ocean and interstate highways. Made traveling around southern California very easy. This was one of those resorts that in my mind " under promised and over delivered" We will be back again to southern California and will stay here. By the way Welk Resorts location in Palm Springs, I would give the same review as we have stayed there before and loved it.

My son requested to stay here for his birthday weekend, was a win for all of us. They enjoyed the fishing pond again and the pools. Stayed at a villa on the green and was a tad run down. Could see it’s age in the furniture but it was fine. Super close to pools with water slide. Walked over to Harmony Hill area and will try to stay there if we get a chance. Last stays were up at the mountain villas and unfortunately while that appears to be the newest colony of rooms, WiFi was awful there both times we have been here. WiFi in this room was great..a little problem getting the things we had requested but just called again for them. Great place if you have kids and never want to leave anywhere. BBQs on grounds are great as well!! Hope to return!

"Awesome!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Awesome resort amenities and immaculate, beautiful grounds...expertly maintained. We stayed in a lower level two bedroom in the Volare building and couldn’t have asked for a better location to enjoy our 2 and 4 year old granddaughters. They loved playing on the grass and walking around the fish pond just across the street. They also loved climbing on the rocks by the pond. Because they were sick some of the week, we did not do the pools but would have taken a car or asked for a golf cart to the Boulder recreation area where the slide and amenities looked like the mist fun. The pool right by us on Harmony Hill was ok but didn’t have a slide. Basketball court and an area recreation center were right there, though. This resort is huge and you won’t be able to walk to everything but they have a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes or so and you can request a golf cart taxi anytime. The condo was large and comfortable with 2 huge double sink bathrooms. These two- level buildings had 16 steps either up or down and the master bath with shower was a very high step in...but guest bathroom was a walk in shower. Very comfortable patio furniture with a gorgeous view. We’d definitely stay here again!

Lovely golf course and nice amenities. Pools are not readily accessible to each building.Too many stairs to the upper units, not great for older patrons. Not readily accessible to Escondido for shopping, etc.

Spent a week at Welk Resorts in Escondido. Property was very well maintained. Unit was very well equipped and very modern in fixtures. Lots of pools and very convenient to attractions in San Diego and Riverside counties. We toured a lot of wineries nearby, and it was a great central location from which to tour. We have traded in to other timeshare properties, and this was one of the best.
