We always have a great Experience when visiting Welk San Diego - Friendly staff - Great rooms - plenty of Activities. Mountain villas are the best - we have stayed in all villas on the property. Our time share experience has been well worth the investment.

We have traded Marriott points in the past for different resorts and have been disappointed. Welk Resort is amazing and won't disappoint!

We stayed here with our family in October 2016. My husband and I had a two bedroom unit in the older section of the resort that we shared with my daughter and her husband and two little girls, while my son and his family had a room in the Mountain Villas. Both rooms were wonderful! Even though ours was not...

This is a great resort in all respects. We traded here through Interval and will go back. The location, the service, and the area for two couples and a toddler were fantastic. We've never been in a place where the kitchen and living area were so spacious.

The Welk Resort is one that is unforgettable! The staff are pretty helpful and the grounds are beautiful. There are multiple golf courses, pools, and shops onsite. Not a good place of you want to be close to the city... It's pretty far out. The pricing of the food and amenities were a little high, but still affordable. The pools...

We stayed a week in Mid-March in a 2 bedroom resort. The resort was beautiful! Our suite was spacious, well appointed and nicely decorated. It was extremely comfortable.

We booked a 2 room unit on our exchange program. The unit we were assigned was in the Torres Pine building. Although it is in the oldest section, it was closest to all the amenities we wanted.

Stayed in the Mountain Villas at Welk for a week and really enjoyed our unit. It was a one-bedroom but very spacious, clean, and modern. The kitchen was very large and well-supplied, as was the bathroom. If you are planning to stay there, avoid buildings Boulder Peak, Olympus, and Matterhorn. Their patios face west and are unusable in the afternoon...
