A rat ran across my daughter's feet in the only restaurant on the property

We loved everything about this resort

Everything

I will never return to Welk Resorts. They market themselves on their website as a hotel but they are nothing of the sort. There was no restaurant, no bar, and the two spots that were open for food poolside had very limited options. It was a very odd spot. Had I known we would have no access to food I would have never booked here. Extremely disappointing vacation and “resort”.

excellent.

My two tv did not work my hot water did not work an my bathroom had hair all n sink

Rooms were recently updated, 5 swimming pools all enjoyable, disappointed that the spa's were closed. Restaurants were still for takeout only. Will return again when everything is open.

Overall i love it ............ ....

Very nice & relaxing place to stay. My daughter loved the pool & kids area to play.

Beautiful area, the weather was perfect, the two bedrooms were excellent, we had a wonderful time even with the limited activities due to the virus. Enjoyed the fireplaces. Exceptionally clean facility. Will go again soon.

Beautiful views, great golf, tennis and basketball. Only downfall, the connected balcony was an issue with privacy. We wanted a private balcony but our connected balcony had children..Noisy.

We enjoyed the bbq area, the pool, golf couse...staff was very friendly and helpful. Didnt like the hour long wait in line for checkin. Not enough staff at the service desk

Very clean golfing and swimming were great Staff were friendly Will be staying again in the future
