The island is famous for being the place where Edward VIII met Mrs Simpson and enjoyed many an afternoon, doing what Ella called ‘canoodling’ however some would like to believe they just enjoyed a refreshing G&T overlooking the ocean…NOT!!!

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
