I mentioned to the front desk that the beds and pillows are very hard to sleep on and my wife and I hard back arcs every morning. We spent the whole night most nights twitching and turning. I called the resort... More

Wonderful location, right across from beach and the path you walk down to get there, and only a few blocks from main Carlsbad town area so you can walk to dinner and shops. The ocean view was nice with a balcony, although there is a street and traffic right there. If you aren't a timeshare owner, you only have choice... More

Family of 4. Staff is wonderful - reception, cleaners, breakfast bar, etc. really nice. Parking is great too. Actual rooms are dark, damp and the sink water smelled. Pool is nice. AC vents are dirty. Location is great!

We recently made the Tamarack our base for 4 nights while visiting the beach and Legoland. It is right across the street from a beach entrance and a few blocks away from Carlsbad Beach (and about 10 minutes driving distance to Legoland). The Tamarack is primarily a Timeshare property, with floors 2 and 3 being timeshare and floor 1 being... More

WE loved this location. It is so close to the beach. The views from the deck were amazing. The rooms were clean and comfortable. They had grills available so we were able to cook onsite. There is so much within walking distance. We had an amazing time at this resort. The free breakfast was great as well. My kids loved... More

The rooms are very nice; the view from the rooms are great. Staff is very friendly. Pool tables, pingpong table and games for guests to enjoy. Very good location with restaurants nearby. Easy ocean access right across the street.

This was our first time here and we are planning on returning next year. Very friendly staff. Parking is great. Room needs a few minor repairs, however the balcony, ocean view & sunset were fantastic!
