We stayed here for two weeks and used it as a base to explore the surrounding area. Our villa was beautifully furnished and the kitchen well equipped. We had a large flat screen tv in our lounge and another in the bedroom. There are good laundry facilities on site. The staff could not be more pleasant or helpful. The pool...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 days for my birthday, and from start to finish it was such a pleasant visit! The staff here is on point, always very friendly and helpful. We also loved the fact that there is a separate adult pool, though it is half the size of the main pool, it is definitely less...

We stayed for 1 week, on the 1st floor facing the golf course, room 115. The room was still close to the pool and activity room, but it was far away enough for privacy and quiet. The 100s building was also close to parking. Upon arrival, the front desk staff was very friendly and helped us find somewhere to eat....

Nice getaway for the family. 1.5 from home. Great little city to visit. Resort was nice. This is not like their own built resorts so you can't compare. But for the price it's good and the staff was friendly. Also did the timeshare review and wished we were in the spot to do it. Great time.

Welks Resort... shame on you! We expected the weather to obviously be hot... but the pool, pool showers, room faucets, shower, and any other water at your place is even HOTTER! How is that possible? When we talked to staff and shared our complaint, we were first told by staff that there is nothing they could do about. After explaining...

Been coming here for 30 years and we love it! Both winter and summer time, it is equally wonderful! We love the heat, so the hot days do not bother us in the middle of July. The AC works wonders though for those wanting to be inside relaxing. The activity center does a great job keeping you as involved as...

I had a ground floor one bedroom and it was quite large. I would say 2 kids and 2 adults could certainly enjoy themselves. The children's pool was crowded but the adult pool even though it was small it wasn't crowded in the morning or evening when I went. Not sure of what it was like during the day. I...
