Check in was quick and pleasant. We called the resort with a request for room location a week prior to arrival. All requests were granted. We stayed on Melody Hill, the only adult pool in the resort. Upon arrival we were informed that the pool and rec center were closed for major construction. The weather was a little cool so we weren’t inconvenienced. Our two bedroom, two bath Villa #152 was perfect, 1370 square feet with beautiful furnishings, large fully stocked kitchen and a corner deck on the 2nd floor overlooking the golf course (thru the trees). We went to the presentation and received show tickets for the “illusions” show, which was excellent, along with a $60.00 AMEX card. The presentation was very low key, they were selling points. The Welk Resort system is first class. Many activities for everyone to enjoy. The farmers market on Monday featured many vendors selling a variety of items. The Canyon Grill on site features a variety of lunch and dinner choices. A Pizza Hut Express is a great choice for take-out. We enjoyed our week stay and now will move up to the Mountain Villas for a week. The resort allowed us to stay in the Resort Villa until our Mountain Villa was ready for our move-in.

We have owned property all over the western US and this is by far our favorite spot. So much to do nearby, golf, casinos, seaworld, legoland, etc. and the location is perfect. The on-property golf course is perfect for a vacation course, not too tough, not too easy, and makes for a great afternoon or morning. There are numerous pools on the property and tons of activities for the kids. There is a pizza hut on-site and the resort restaurant has a wonderful menu. There's absolutely no reason to leave the property! We love it here and have been coming back for years. They continue to update the villas and maintain the property. This is one of the best family investments we've ever made.

Recently spent a week here using two 2BR villas. Both were recently refurbished, well appointed, and very clean. Response to maintenance requests was prompt and satisfactory. Grounds were excellent; theater was fun. Recreation centers were well organized, stocked and staffed. Front desk staff was helpful and responsive.

Only downside is that roof replacement (tile) was being done right next to our villas and it was busy with construction vehicles and comotion throughout the day. Also, if you are NOTa points member, do not subject yourself to the very aggressive and almost rude sales presentation up on the mountain.

It was nice to return to L Welk after several years elsewhere. Five stars all around.

We stayed at the Welk this past week. Overall, it was a good experience. The resort is well kept. Pools are great for kids. Weather is great inland.

The positives: The two room unit we stayed in was spacious and was setup nicely. The two rooms were separated by the main living area so that my wife and I could watch TV in our room without having to worry about keeping the kids awake in the other room. The resort itself is very nice, has GREAT pools for the kids with slides that they really enjoyed. And being quite a bit inland from the coast ensures that you don't get socked in witht he marine layer every day and the temperatures were in the high 80's every day. We had bright sunshine every day. The resort is set in a valley so that views from the resort, specifically from the pools, are very nice.

The negatives: This place is really out in the middle of nowhere. It is a solid 10-15 drive just to get to a grocery store/convenient store. So, if you are like us and like to go out to dinner, this is a major hassle. I suppose if you bring/buy all your own food and mainly cook at the resort, this wouldn't be an issue, but it was for us. Also, if you want to go to the pools, it is very likely a drive/shuttle to get there. The best pool is the Mountain Springs, which for us was not walkable. The shuttle doesn't run nearly enough so it was a bit of a drag to have to drive to go to the pool. The Resort Villas where we stayed are clearly older -- there were gold accents in the bathroom that made me think of the 70's -- but it was was fine. Lastly, if you are a golfer like me, the golf onsite is a Par 3 course and an executive course. If you want a real golf course, you will again need to get driving. I played Twin Oaks -- 10 minutes or less away and it was fine.

We just returned from spending a week at the Lawrence Welk Resort. We do not own at this resort, it is in a good location if you want to go to the Wine area in Temecula, or travel to San Diego, about 45 minutes away. The staff put us in a older unit, since we do not own there. It was large, 2 bedroom, very old, new carpet and updated furniture. The freeway was very close, alot of noise. It could have been cleaner, dead bugs on the carpet, sliding door to patio very dirty, never cleaned, patio furniture dirty, showers had no water pressure. They did come back in and clean up a few things, not everything. The pool areas were nice, too cold in April to use. This is only a 5 Star Resort if you stay in the new units, that they are selling. The older units, need to be completly redone, I would rate about 3 Star. There are alot of older people here, who have bought alone time ago. You will need to cook here or travel about 30 minutes away to eat, they have a restaurant onsite, it was ok. The golf course was also ok, only a par 3, my husband was not impressed, took along time to complete, due to the older people playing. Just a note, that I did live a message with the General Manager on Staff, he never returned our call to see if everything was taken care of. No need to return to this resort.
