"Christmas Getaway"
January 2020
The hotel and front desk staff were wonderful. The activities staff...not so wonderful. We attended several scheduled events only to find that the person in charge of the event made a decision not to have the event. We were told things like there was too many kids. I thought the reason to offer the event was to draw the kids to it. In the game room we asked for controllers for the video games the attendant half way pointed and said look over there. There was no controllers and all the board games had missing pieces. We love the Welks and have always loved taking our Christmas break trip there. This time I left a little disappointed. The breakfast buffet never disappoints!!

"Noisy"
August 2019
To start with the beds are not queen size they are an oversized full. The noise above are room every night was like a Hurd if elephants till 1 or 2 am. But on a good note it was a very nice place for kids. The pool and slide was very nice. My granddaughter loved the activities at the pool but please make sure you take plenty of money with you because everything will cost you. The prices could be a little lower for the activities but still fun for the kids. The room we stayed in was not very clean the carpet was very worn and old.

"Good for children"

Although it would be a good place for kids, the employees tended to not be so friendly, the rooms had a moldy smell and mold could be seen in the bathrooms. I had two different rooms on two different floors and both had the same problems

"Sadly disappointed"
December 2018
Although the staff was friendly and professional, I was sadly disappointed in the accommodations. The rooms were at best, mediocre. Not what I would expect after reading the descriptions on the Welk website and paying their rates. Even more frustrating was not having any hot water for a shower! After Letting the water “run until the water gets hot”, as told to do so by a gentleman at the front desk, an hour later the water was still cold and I no longer had the time to shower before our reserved dinner show. Needless to say, we won’t be back!

"Excellent Adventure!!!"
August 2018
This was my first time planning my family vacation. Everything worked perfectly! We had no issues at all. We got there, checked in, and they put us in a room right next to my aunt who was just passing through. The rooms were a tad on the smaller side, but who really spends a lot time in their room anyway? There is so much to do at the hotel! There is a list of events everywhere to make sure you don't miss a thing. The Splashatorium is pretty awesome, even for us adults! There is a smaller pool on the backside of the hotel too, which was usually less crowded and great for family wading. The rooms were clean, however, the beds weren't the most comfortable, but we all know nothing compares to our own! The breakfast buffet is great! Definitely worth the cost. Fill up early and spend less later! I would totally recommend this resort and we will stay there again for sure! P.S. If address the concierge regarding the timeshare mumbo jumbo upfront, they won't bother you again ;)

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed the set up. They have activities lined up all day so even if you don't have plans you can still have fun there. My kids as well as my husband and I loved the splashatorium. The staff was super friendly and always helpful.

"Worst Branson experience in 35+ years"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed March 18, 2020
Been going to Branson for 35+ years. Made probably 100+ trips. Although I knew better, we fell for a “too good to be true” package trap and paid dearly. Definitely the worse experience in Branson in years, if not ever, and Welk/Westgate is the cause. Their promise of no high-pressure sales pitch is a blatant lie as it was more pressure than the Wyndham pitch we heard a few years ago. The guarantee that you’ll be out in 90 minutes? Nope. After two hours, we insisted on leaving but they wouldn’t give us the completion paperwork so we could go. We had to get kinda stern. Part of their presentation was to “part as friends”, whether you buy or not. It was like flipping a switch when they finally accepted that “no means no.” Salesman literally walked away and rudeness was ramped up. After the presentation with exaggerated numbers and literally a “wait, there’s more!” line, they tried to belittle us and one salesman in the room even “huffed” when I responded to the sales lady that she was not going to make fun of me as she said she was. And then there’s the rooms we stayed in for two nights. While they show pictures of kitchenettes and 1,2, or 3 bedroom rooms and led us to believe we would have a place to prepare food so we could see what the resort had to offer, we were stuck in a shoebox size room with full/double beds, smaller than Motel 6 but we didn’t have even a working mini-fridge, microwave, and very little toilet paper! Granted the pool and slide, hot tubs, etc, were nice and they had a good variety of snacks (as long as you were willing to be gouged for a $4 simple s’more. After cancelling our complementary breakfast (kinda understandable), no alternative was offered and we were referred to as “those people”, referring to the booking agent we used. In summary, the nice landscaping, pool, and activities (at a cost) isn’t even close to enough to make up for the horrific and unprofessional customer service, their deceptions, and outright poor treatment of potential vacation club members (wasn’t even a time share BS). If you see Welk or Westgate when making vacation plans, just keep scrolling. Definitely not worth the hassle and stress. Note - looks like they can just rent rooms like any hotel. If so, the rooms are average, small, and almost no amenities. Pool, hot tubs, and slide is pretty cool but activities and snacks are very overpriced.

"Just fine"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed March 13, 2020
This is your average hotel, nothing great but nothing terrible. The “water park” is just a big pool with one water slide and a splash area. There’s also a giant checker board and ping pong table. But they give out wrist bands to enter it although there didn’t seem to be a single employee there to check it. I’m super positive we could’ve used the area without paying for it were I a dishonest person. One of our comforters had a giant brown stain on it which is disgusting but they at least brought us a clean one rather quickly once I called the front desk. There’s only 1 ice machine and no vending machines (at least that I could find) so that was inconvenient.

Reviewed February 07, 2020
Two couples stayed in a two bedroom kickoff right before Christmas. What a great resort. Lots of room and kept up resort. Had a little problem with tv but when we called had immediate help. Just needed some fine tuning. The balcony and fireplaces were an extra nice amenity. Didn’t use the water park but walked through and looked like fun. Not right downtown but within a few minutes of anywhere we wanted to go. Had a little delay in checking in but that was because I went to wrong front desk. Two in the lobby One for resort owners and one for regular folks. Not as clearly marked but once I found right desk quick check in. Definitely recommend
