Tips To Help You Achieve Youthful Skin Again

A travel blog entry by colonyaron2

... skin. Instead of believing these celebrities, ask your friends or family what products have worked for them and what the results were. To get better looking skin naturally, you should drink lots of water. While moisturizers replenish your skin from the outside, water can hydrate your skin from the inside, leaving you with a natural glow. Water also improves your circulation, and drinking plenty of it can keep you from looking overly pale or washed out. ...

San Diego day trip

A travel blog entry by comodikes


Although we spent a day in sea world we didn't really get to see San Diego at all so we decided to drive down again and explore the city of choice for many expat south africans. My theory is that south Africans have a good nose for a liveable city and San Diego is no exception. We found some great beaches and great views (ocean, seals and gorgeous sun bathers - ...

Last day in San Diego

A travel blog entry by greyo


... were really tacky whilst others seemed to be just whatever was available to fill the space. It was an ok way to spend a few hours but don’t expect to get a lot from it.

On to Coronado which is basically a peninsula in San Diego bay and yet another US Navy base. As you’ve already guessed, the navy is big in San Diego. Coronado was lovely, very posh and lots of fantastic houses but at $3.4m for even the most modest of ones, I don’t think we’ll ...

... Asante, thank you for joining us today".. maybe its cause i'm such a pro eh?
It was a gorgeous day - waheyy - so Ellen and i sat out and had lunch while working on our tan... which is non-existent as we are both as pale as they come! I had Nachos though, and it came with chilli sauce, almost chilli con carne actually.. i know i was confused also. And my mouth wanted to cry because of the heat! Apparently it had no spice at all... i beg to differ!!
On the way ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Welk Resort San Diego Escondido

    What a beautiful resort villa we had! Super location!


    We just returned to Ohio after spending one week at the Lawrence Welk Resort Villas. The villa was wonderful and spotless! We enjoyed doing things in San Diego such as Old Town, the Midway (a large air carrier), Padres baseball game at the new Petco ballpark, and Point Loma National Monument. We also spent one day in Palm Springs which is only ninety minutes away. My husband enjoyed the golf course and we all enjoyed the pool, restaurant and dinner theatre, and the shops. This was a wonderful vacation and we will return there next January.

    Good resort


    stayed at welk resort on exchange feb 5th 2005 till 19th found resort to be very good.room we had was spotless and well maintained.lot of building work being done but did not affect our stay.Katrina the concierge was really helpfull nothing was to much trouble.If you like golf two small courses ,our stay was hampered by bad weather[i thought it never rained in southern california]the only thing that really spoilt it for us was how far out the resort was from resteraunts and shops all 20 minute drive it was a bit of a pain as we ate out every night

    Our family loves this resort


    Regarding the negative review - the unfortunate family must have visited the premises before the hotel was torn down (prior to June 2004) to make room for brand new suites. Our children love the pools, recreation centres, tennis courts etc. We have only ever stayed in the villas, and they have full kitchens and a washer and dryer. Parking is adequate, although you can not always park immediately in front of your suite.

    What a wonderful Vacation


    What a wonderful place to take the kids. Even though the resort is located in north San Diego County, the on site amenities were fantastic. If it wasn't for promising to take the kids to the zoo and Sea World, we would have never had to leave the resort. They had a water slide, kids play area, game rooms, and lots of pools. My husband loved the golf course and I insisted we go to the theatre on site. It was a surprisingly professional production of Bye Bye Birdie. They had shops, restaurants and beautiful open grounds to stroll through or fish in the small lake.

    All I can say is WOW! I'm ready to make my reservation for next year.

    A great place for Family Reunions


    In response to the person that stayed in the Hotel... My family and I were planning to stay in the hotel; also, however when we called they said they tore down the hotel so the reservations agent asked if we would like to try staying in their 1 or 2 bedroom villas for our family reunion. They gave us a reasonable rate since we were renting more than one unit. We were so happy because instead of having everyone gathers in one hotel room with 2 Queen beds and a Bathroom. We now had 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condos to entertain in with Kitchens and Living rooms and you know how families like to gather around in one hotel room Hence, the villas were perfect due to the fact of their enormous size. I am grateful they talked us into staying in the villas it definitely beats the hotel room any day!

    Lots to enjoy


    We spent a week here from 9/26 to 2/10.

    We Love the Welk Resort!


    Our family spent a week at the Welk Resort and had an excellent family vacation! The villas were very spacious and the full kitchens made it so convenient for us. There were so many things for the kids to do at the resort and the golfing was great for us too.

    The location was great for us to visit family and friends in both San Diego and Los Angeles. We were also able to visit the Wild Animal Park. The only bad thing was that one week was too short.

    We can't wait to go back again next year!

    Its great At the Welks's


    We just returned from a weekend at the Welk Resort in Escondido. We stayed at other resorts around the San diego area and so far this resort has been the best . The villas are beautiful! very spacious and cozzy The resort grounds are well maintained. Personnel were very attentive to our needs .The new water park is a great for the kids if you have any or just for your self . You won't be disappointed. The only regrets we have is that we did not stay longer.

    Spectacular Resort!


    We just returned from a week at the Welk Resort in Escondido. We have stayed at many resorts around the world, and this is clearly one of the best! The units are breathtaking! The resort grounds are spacious and exceptionally well maintained. Personnel were top-notch. You won't be disappointed!

    Not worth the money


    The staff at the welk resort are friendly and try hard, but they are trying to make a silk purse out of the proverbial sow's ear. The building Welk uses as the "hotel" has seen better days. The rooms are sparsely furnished, the plumbing is badly in need of updating, and the towels are the thinest I have ever seen. There is an on site laundry, but the "hotel" guests are not allowed to use it. the parking is completely inadequate. By inadequate I mean less than 25 convenient spaces for nearly 50 units. You can get a better room at your average Motel 6 for one third of the price.
