This is our third yearly trip around Christmas time to the resort. My kids love the property and all the activity centers. They did complain mightily about the super slow/intermittent internet connections at the resort. We stayed in the resort villas and we absolutely love the set up of the units and how large they are. The past 2 years...

My husband and I spent New Years week at the Lawrence Welk resort in Escondido. The facility is very nice- 3 pools some heated so even though it was cold and rainy the children were swimming and having a great time. There were lots of activities posted for kids. We found the condo to be nice but nothing special. Food...

We stayed in the Mountain Villas. Our unit was quite spacious. We had two Flat screen TV's and two fireplaces. You turn the fireplace on with a light switch. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen had a little bar area and a nice dining table. The kitchen was stocked with enough cookware to prepare simple meals. The pool in...

Took my sons down to San Diego with me for my birthday week. I'm an auditions member with Welk Timeshares. This place is simply amazing. From the moment I entered, I was impressed. The staff, the suite, the property, the activities, and so on. To much to list. 5 star resort. San Diego is 20-25 mins south. After a trip...

We exhanged our timeshare to stay here with the purpose of having a central location to visit the winery near Escodido and Temecula and to sight see the region in general. The location is perfect for that. We did not take advantage of the golf, pools, or other amenities. The onsite restaurant, The Canyon Grille, is average to better than...

First off let me say I am an Owner since 2001. Each time I stay I experience a lack of service I once had. It seems they are more concerned with getting you to buy more time than to address concerns you have while staying on the property. The Good: The Resort Grounds are beautiful. The recreation areas are well...

Holiday getaway. Resort had a lot of fun activities. Weather was warm enough in December 17-24 for us to enjoy the swimming pool and slides. My little boy was hard to pull out of the water. Unit had a full kitchen with 2 bedrooms. Relaxing and away from it all.

Mission accomplished. Stayed at the mountain villa Alpine. Very quiet. Room equipped with everything you need. Stove, washer, dryer, utensils. Jacuzzi tub, warm shower and 2 televisions. Nice enough decore. No complaints. Maybe update the bathroom a little and some of the furniture. All in all good experience. The Canyon Grille has bland generic food.
