This resort is a hidden gem! We love the convenience and location. You are centrally located near all the San Diego and Temecula attractions. The resort is beautiful. The golf courses are fun and the food at the local grill is wonderful. The resort rooms are HUGE. They are extremely well maintained and beautifully decorated. The staff is quick to respond to any concerns. The resort staff is so helpful and kind. The entertainment on-site means we can leave the keys in the room once we get there. There are several casinos and beautiful golf courses located within minutes of the resort if you want to explore. The Temecula wine country is beautiful in the spring and fall.

We just returned from Welk Resort in Escondido. What a fantastic resort! Love the shows they bring to the Theater there! One of our favorite things about Welk Resort is the quiet relaxed atmosphere. It's so open and spread out, you don't feel like you are vacationing with hundreds of other people; if one pool is crowded, you just go find another one! The beautiful golf courses give an open, spacious feeling too. The restaurant is a great place to eat. Not only is the food really good, but the staff and service is top notch too. We especially liked the buffet they offer on the nights there's a show in the theater. The price is right and the food is super good.

WiFi is free now (i saw some older posts referring to having to pay) and there are complementary computers in the lounges.

Movie rentals available for only $2 each for 2 nights. AND they have a good selection of movies! Games and reading material are available too.

We took advantage of an offer through Sunrise Balloon Company for a hot air balloon ride over the Temecula Valley. That was a really fun experience! Other times we have visited, we used the concierge services to arrange day trips and excursions, or planned trips to the zoo, Sea World, Disney, Wild Animal Park (just a few miles up the road from the resort) on our own.

The Resort is located in an area that gives a person many choices for activities or you can just stay and the resort all week and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and amenities offered right there....never needing to leave the premises in order to have a wonderful vacation!

Just returned from Villas on the Green through RCI exchange. This is a beautiful resort. We were worried there's nothing to do "out there" after reading the "mixed" reviews. Boy, were we wrong! There were plenty of activities for the young and the old at the resort as well as in the area. It is such a wonderful place for vacation. (I am not an owner so this is not a biased statement ;)

Pros: 1. Great location...close to the freeway, yet in the quiet setting, and all San Diego attractions are less than 30 mins of drive. 2. Buildings are spread out, not all cramped together. 3. Ample of parking spaces. 4. Great recreation centers and pools (5 total?) Waterslide was a big hit. 5. BBQ grills all it!! 6. Friendly staff...not pushing to sell 7. Spacious unit with large balcony. 8. Beautiful golf course...

Cons: I can think of two only.. 1.Extra charge for using internet if your computer dials outside 706 area code..0( (In this age, all internet should be FREE!) 2. No elavator - was difficult to carry the luggages and the ice chest up the staris.

Would we go back again? You bet!

We spent two weeks in August at the Villas on the Greens. You do need a car to enjoy the area, but we were more than happy with that. The 1 bedroom villa was very spacious with a large balcony overlooking the fountain and greens; it had plenty of patio furniture. There was plenty of storage space in the kitchen too. The resort was busy at this time of year and we never had a problem with finding somewhere to park. Although our unit was located opposite the clubhouse with the waterpark, I preferred the adult only pool on Broadway Hill, which was always virtually empty in the early evening.

The resort staff were extremely helpful with making bookings for the theatre and excursions and with suggestions for places to visit. We had the greatest fun visiting the wineries in the Temecula Valley.

Overall an excellent resort. 4 stars because a) we could hear the freeway from our unit (not massively invasive, but a little annoying and b) because the excellent supermarkets were quite a long way away from the resort.
