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...

This is a large timeshare resort with golf course multiple pools, lovely mountain views and very nice rooms. My family of 5 had a 2 bedroom/2 bath villa. We were pleasantly surprised by the unit. It was very large and had been recently updated. We had a ground floor unit which worked out well as the kids were able to...

We enjoyed our visit in Dec. 2016 to Welks. They offer lots of family activities from bingo, beach volleyball, foot golf, theater, to swimming, etc. There was so much to do we never felt bored. The rooms were big, clean and well kept. The fitness center offered a lot of activity. The staff was very nice overall. Only the constant...

The Welk Resort here is quite a beautiful place and setting that is tucked in between two mountain ridges. The reception desk was friendly and helpful in meeting our request for a less populated area with nice view. The common space with theatre, restaurants, shops is unique and well done. Our spacious, nicely furnished condo in the Olivia building was...

Beautiful room. Great for two couples. Lots of room. The only down side would be the pool and hot tubs weren't very conveniently located for a quick soak. The food at the restaurant was good, but not very creative. The Concierge also wasn't very interested in speaking to us when we turned down a tour of the resort so they...

We were happy that early check in was avaiable after a nerve wracking drive in pouring rain from Palm Springs but the unit needed several visits from Housekeeping to make it really READY to be occupied.
