We stayed with our friends who own a two bedroom timeshare here. Very spacious, across the street from the beach, walk to town. Also a short walk to the train, which you can take to San Diego for $5.50 round trip (Senior fare over 60) Nice pool and game room. We spent a lot of time just sitting on the... More

I've been a timeshare owner here for over 20 years. This resort sits on the street across for the beach. Limited rooms have a full ocean view, another portion has partial ocean view and the rest overlook the pool. Doesn't matter much as you don't stay in your room on vacation. The walk to the beach is 2 minutes and... More

My family and I have been going for many years and cannot wait until we go again next year! The service keeps getting better and better every year. All the staff are always extremely friendly. The game room is great and has many brochures to plan adventures. I would definitely recommend this resort!

Surprised by any negative reviews, stay here a couple of times a year and always love it. There are hotel rooms on the front and side of the first floor and big time share units with full kitchens and over 1000+ sq ft of room. The pool is in the courtyard and very protected from the elements, so if its... More

This was at least our 6th visit to Tamarack and we are completely pleased with the staff and facility. We try to stay in full ocean view rooms. We have recommended Tamarack to at least 5 friends and relatives who all have had excellent stays. It is very relaxed and the location is walking distance to the village and across... More

Just returned from our 2nd stay at Tamarack and we had such a wonderful time we have already booked for next summer. The resort is wonderfully located right across from the beach and within walking distance of downtown Carlsbad. The staff was wonderful and the accomodations were clean and well maintained. We ate breakfast every morning we were there and... More

This is a great place to stay if your looking for something close to the beach. My family really enjoyed staying here. We had a partial ocean view room which we could see the ocean from our balcony. Both the room and the balcony were large. The game room was a hit for my kids as was the free DVD... More

I would definitely come back to this hotel after the experience I had. It is right across the street from the entrance to Frazee Beach. There are many eateries and shops nearby within walking distance. The staff is extremely nice and friendly. There are DVD players in each room and they have a wide selection of DVDs you can borrow...

I was most impressed with the family atmosphere of this hotel. Young families with children seemed to be the norm. It has a pool, bbqs, library with movies, ping pong, pool table and other organized activities for the family everyday and a beautiful beach across the street. It is within walking distance to the train depot and a short drive... More
