This was a last minute get away. We had another place lined up in San Clemente and lack of screens to the windows and riptides and no sandy swim friendly beach for kids (or adults). The rooms were clean and they were not cramped on space. We as a family would go back again in the future. Good location, walking... More

From the ocean front units there is an unobstructed view of the gorgeous pacific ocean where you can see dolphins frolicking in the waves alongside the many daily local surfers. No matter the weather, those two groups will be in the water. Add to that the pelicans flying in formation overhead, the crisp ocean breeze and the sounds of the... More

We initially booked with a night staff member calling from Vietnam. I wanted room with an ocean view. Being familiar with the property I asked for the 2nd floor knowing the street level rooms had a bad angle to the water and were really right on the highway (PCH). The clerk said no problem and we went through the booking... More

Perfect time of year, something for everyone to enjoy. Staff was there for our needs. Locally all is within walking distance. Always with any type of holding your credit card check the amount at reservation prior to arrival 👍

The service was great. The room was right across from the beach. A very good breakfast was provided each morning. I liked everything about the hotel. They have a great recreation room with billards, and movie rentals.

Our condo was very clean and stocked with amenities...can't wait to go back. The location was great and the ocean view was gorgeous. Grocery stores were super close and swimming pool temperature was perfect!

Tamarack's location is ideal in Carlsbad. We had an interior room with no balcony. The balcony rooms look amazing! Dini's drinks and food is some of the best in Carlsbad. The continental breakfast was very well done.

We LOVE the Tamarack!!! We have spent our anniversary here for the past 12 years as a couple's getaway to just relax at the beach. The resort is always clean and the staff is accommodating. We have always asked for an ocean view room because I enjoy sitting out on the balcony and enjoying the ocean. Highly recommended!!!!

We discovered Tamarack through trading our timeshare. We have been coming here for ten years. It's a place where you can bbq, or go to a restaurant. Any time we go to Carlsbad, we stay here. Can't go wrong with the hotel or the timeshare rooms.
