The tour was fun, no hard sell. The property was beautiful at least the units we saw. I like that is has more than one rec. area with pools and ponds stocked with fish for fishing. I look forward to going back when it is not raining to see how crowded it may get.

I became an owner three years ago and this is what I have to say. Property is situated somewhat in the middle of nowhere but the freeway can get you to many places with a 20-45 minute drive. Our unit was a downstairs unit (like a basement type unit) with no natural light. I had called ahead and asked if...

The Good: The facilities themselves are great! Lots of pools, ( The one near our condo had a separate water slide that was a lot of fun!) there are also activities to do, like make your own sundae, yoga, etc. some cost extra $$. We saw the play "My Fair Lady" and a "Nearly Neil" (Diamond) concert that were both...

We turned in our Marriott time share to Interval International and traded into Welk. We also stayed here a year ago. This is a very nice resort with an active and engaged staff. There is a restaurant, market place, Pizza Hut and general store on property. They also have a live theater and evening events. There is also a weekly...

Surrounded by mountains, a beautiful place, with great amenities. Have stayed here twice and would return. Need a car to get here, as it is a little out of the way. We love to walk and there is plenty here.

Through a timeshare exchange we spent a week at the Welk Resort. One of our daughters lives in Carlsbad, a city north of San Diego. We had hoped to exchange closer to her family and had done so before. However, with the Torry Pines PGA event, we couldn't find an exchange close to Carlsbad and had to settle of trying...

I had a two bedroom unit that was a huge space (sleeping up to 8 people). Large kitchen, large dining room table, and great room where everyone could gather. Unit also had a large balcony. The resort itself is situated in the foothills, which is a lovely landscape. However, the I-15 passes through the corridor and produces a lot of...

Beware of their sales promises. We traded one of our time shares for time at Welk. We were told there would probably be a charge of $400-700. In fact when we got the bill it was more than $1,400. We would advise against making a purchase unless all costs are clearly made transparent.

My wife and I traded our Marriott Time Share for a week at the end of January in order to attend the PGA event at Torrey Pines. Our check-in experience was first rate. The people were pleasant and professional and knowledgeable in answering our questions. The weather was dark and rainy when we checked into our two-bedroom corner villa, so...
