Play and Relaxation at Welk Resort San Diego

What Do the Rooms Include?

Tucked in a green valley at the foot of a circle of hills in Escondido, California, the 600-acre Welk Resort San Diego is a family wonderland just north of San Diego. The resort’s modern-country style villas offer one, two, and three-bedroom units with full-service kitchens, living rooms, dining areas, and balconies or patios that offer peaceful vistas of the area. All villas have free WiFi, Cable TV, kitchenware, climate control and basic can’t-live-without travel amenities.

What Amenities are Available?

There’s something to excite travelers of all ages. There are eight outdoor pools, a massage and skincare spa, a sauna, a kid’s pool, interactive splash zones, and two water slides. Five recreation facilities, four tennis courts, and two golf courses keep active guests happy, while the Welk Theatre provides Broadway-style entertainment. There’s also a weekly Farmer’s Market and daily scheduled activities that include things like arts and crafts, music by the fire, morning wellness walks, and water aerobics.

How Much Will a Stay at Welk Resort Cost?

You can get a standard one-bedroom villa starting at $200 a night.

What activities are popular near Welk Resort?

Try your hand fishing on the resort’s lake, or go mountain biking on a nearby trail. If you want to venture out though, thirty minutes to an hour will take you to the sandy beaches of the Pacific, into the heart of San Diego, or to popular attractions like the San Diego Zoo Safari, or LEGOLAND. Several gorgeous wineries are also scattered throughout the region.

What’s the Bottom Line?

Welk Resort San Diego is perfect for a southern California trip that requires some proximity to popular attractions while still accessing a laid back, family appeal and sense of quiet retreat, which may be hard to find at other Escondido hotels.
