Close to many fantastic restaurants and quaint village of Carlsbad and Ocean front. great location for out of state vacationers and unlimited attractions drivable south to san Diego or north to Orange County and Los Angeles and day trip to Catalina island.

My husband and I spent a week at Hilton Grand Marbrisa Resort. The concierge staff was very helpful when it came to planning our tours and activities for the week. The facilities were clean and well kept. This would be a great location for families with children. Lego Land was right out back from our balcony. We were a short... More

Yes the older units do show a little wear. We are relatively new owners in HGV and and stayed third stay in a HGV property. Overall we were pleased with our 1 bedroom suite. The unit itself is well appointed and quite large. We had most of our meals in our unit and found everything we needed to enjoy. The... More

STUDIO PLUS. Small room, inadequate furniture, bath fixtures not working properly. Stained carpet. Crowded, old room that showed the wear and tear. Great location, Grounds were nice. No security. Villa 56 is in the old section. There are no elevators. Our experience at other HGVC resorts was far better than this facility.

Here is what this property has to offer: Nicely appointed, clean units. Well landscaped grounds. Two pools with some indoor options. Villa buildings 53 & 54 are relatively quiet backing to Crossing Drive. This road dead ends with service to a golf club. There are no elevators in these buildings. Villa buildings 56 has nice view west. Villa buildings 50,... More

We were very pleased with our rooms and the pool the problem was we had our 3 & 5 year old grandchildren with us and other then using the pool there were no other outdoor activities for them I would not recommend bringing young children to this property. The Hilton down the road is much more suited for children

I read the reviews before booking our stay and they were all over the place so I didn't know what to expect. In the end we had a wonderful stay at the Marbrisa resort and will likely be returning. It is a beautiful facility but in my opinion just needs some TLC. Facilities - Beautiful! The grounds are gorgeous and... More

Very high-end resort and breath taking views, excellent amenities, and proximity to LEGOLAND is an immense plus. We had a near perfect Thanksgiving vacation. Definitely plan to return soon. Our room had the pool view with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. In-room wifi is the fastest I've seen in all my travels.
