After looking for a one night getaway in the greater San Diego area, settled on the Tamarack. We had been by it many times and liked that it is right across from beach access. Easy check in, parking underground, clean room. Our entryway carpet was damp (so don't walk around in socks), but we've found this the case at many... More

We have stayed at Tamarack before and went back again this year. It is a great place to stay if you want to hang out at the beach. It is right across the street from Carlsbad State Beach with a ramp to walk down. It is close to the Carlsbad Village where there are plenty of great places to eat... More

I used to live in Carlsbad and always remember the resort. It was a fun place to getaway even living in Carlsbad. I moved away four years ago but still have family and friends in town. It was a nice place to visit and will likely make this an annual trip. Of note, I the "resort" rooms are much nicer... More

We usually rent a condo but stayed in a hotel room this time. Not to worry, the room was huge and even with a roll away there was tons of room to move. Room was super clean and very well appointed.The staff was awesome. I needed urgent care and they directed my to the closest reputable place and provided me... More

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
