Have you stayed at Solvang? Here's your chance to tell other WorldMark owners what it's really like. How big is the pool? How hot is the hot tub? What do you wish you had known before you left home?

We just returned from a 2 night stay in Solvang. We had 2 of our college age kids join us in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. The unit was beautiful, well maintained and HUGE! The beds were fantastic and all the amenities worked great. Our college kids wanted anything made by mom and not from a cafeteria so we made full use of the kitchen. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. The cable was offline when we arrived, so they comp'ed movies for anyone who asked for one. We did not use the pool but it looked very nice (normal hotel size pool) and other guests did use it. The resort is walking distance to everything in Solvang and that was great. We were there on Thursday to Saturday. Thursday and Friday were great as we seemed to have the run of the town with very few other people around. Saturday (it was Memorial weekend), the crowds increased quite a bit, which was more noticeable to us since we had been spoiled by the quiet. :-)

Other than shopping and looking around, there is not a lot to do in Solvang. There are many really good winery tasting rooms and restaurants. As a word of warning, many of the shops and even restaurants close at 5 pm. If you go, regardless of age, a trip to see the miniature horses is a must (its free and will melt anyone's heart! The new foals were out and ... oh, my, so tiny and cute!) The museums in Solvang don't take too long to wander through so 2-3 days is ideal time here. We really enjoyed it and will be back again!

We have been owners for only 2 years but have visited: Inn at the Park (San Diego), Indio, Palm Springs and Solvang.

Loc: San Francisco Area
We spent 2 nights in a 1 bedroom in building 1. Appeared to be a SN room, since the floor plan was so large and the door openings are quite wide. The fireplace didn't work, even after maintenance said they fixed it. This was a refurbished room and quite nice in every other way. We like the area, but don't go at this time of year expecting wineries or the lavender place to be open on Tues or Wed. We were very disappointed that none of the places in Santa Ynez that make sparkling wine were open on Wed, since we ad to leave on Thursday.

Met a lot of nice people by the pool. We'll go back.

We have made a point to visit Solvang every year during Spring Break. It is indeed an excellent place to visit. We particularly like going to Solvang to practice bike riding. The area is great for that activity. The staff at the Resort was very friendly, and helpful. The Resort was undergoing renovations during our stay, which didn't make things look too first class, but that was ok. It couldn't be helped. We had a great time using the facilities, particularly the pool area. Indeed, our family had a great time during our stay, and as always, look forward to our next visit. Thanks!!




Resorts Visited: Big Bear Lake, Pismo Beach, Solvang, and Angels Camp

I see that no one has reviewed this resort in a few years, so here it is! We are currently at the Solvang resort and it is terrific! The resort is in a great area to walk into town for shopping or restaurants. Check-in was a breeze. The ladies at the front desk are very friendly and helpful. The unit itself (1 bedroom) is large. The furniture in the living room is not too comfortable! There is dining seating for 6. The bed is quite hard but not too uncomfortable and they have wonderful "black-out shades" on the bedroom window.
Solvang is a nice way to spend a few days!
