Check in was terrible. Waited 1 1/2 hrs after check in time. This place is so disorganized. My first and LAST time staying here. Complete waist of my time and money. I expected a lot more for the price i paid. The property completely ran out of water in 100 plus degrees. Straight ridiculous. This place is a joke!

Property is nice but there is much much to do around the property

Loved the farmers market, it was a nice surprise. Many great options. Spacious villa we stayed in.

A 2 bed, 2 bath large apartment for the same price as many hotels want to charge for just a room. Absolutely beautiful! The beds were super comfy. The kitchen came furnished with plates, cookware, and utensils (we cooked for ourselves). The layout of the apartment was amazingly laid out with pleasant angles (not just 4 squared walls that makes you feel like your in a box). Would definitely stay here again. Only negatives was that checkin took 45 minutes because they appeared to be short staffed. Also, while very beautiful, our apartment did show some small signs of wear (a broken picture frame and a sizable gouge in the glass top stove cooking surface).

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.
