Great place. Small but more convenient than the bigger outlets. Has quite a few stores that we like. Parking is a big of a challenge but I guess that should be expected. Nice to walk around on a nice day. Dog friendly. Worth a stop on the way to or from San Diego.

Once upon a time, we could spend an entire day going through "Outlet Centers". Now, we very seldom stop at one. However, this one is so close to our hotel, we decided to check it out. First stop was Ralph Lauren Polo. Store was very attractive with lots of merchandise, and lots of customers. However, the prices were high, and... More

Average isn't a slam, it's just a typical outlet mall. They have some decent shops like Vince and Tumi that are a bit better, but otherwise it's a convenient place to shop for some bargains. Couple of decent good spots in the mall, and in a good neighborhood for casual dining.

There are certainly bigger and probably better outlets for men's and women's clothes, shoes, etc., but when it comes sports gear, the Carlsbad Outlets are very strong. Puma, adidas, Reebok and Nike all have stores here with good prices and broad selections. With prices regularly 30-50 percent off retail, it's absolutely worth a stop. See you there...

This outlet mall has a lot of great places to shop, good choice, and good prices. It's easy to access, with lots of parking, and even some decent places to eat. The mall is clean, and not terribly busy.

.. then this is a great place to shop. Admittedly I only had an hour to shop however that didn't stop me picking up some great bargains on the way to the airport. All the shops seem quite large with their stock laid out well so is better the usual outlets where you have to hunt around for your size... More

I found that the sale prices at the higher end purse stores and women's clothing stores were a great bargain. I was very happy with my purchases and the deals I got. It's a smaller center than most I've been too but everyone was very friendly and the stores were stocked well.

Good range of brands for a small outlet centre, not that different price wise from the regular shops in the main although if you have time there's a few bargains to be found. Parking is always a challenge, particularly at weekends!!
