We stayed at this property for just under a week while visiting Legoland and the San Diego Safari Park. Our 1 bedroom suite was awesome. The room was spacious and very clean. We stayed in building 68 which was a great location right next to the pools and walking distance to the private entrance to Legoland. Building 68 also has... More

We had very limited intearction with the staff, but they seemed very nice.We had a 1 Bd. in one of the newer buildings, 58, I think, overlooking the pool from the front door. The unit was beautifully decorated... More

First of al, we wanted to stay at the Pallisaides and told they would check on availability. After several more phone calls, we were told it as full and we had to stay at MarBrisa. Other items were promised on the phone, but were not delivered. Room was on the lower level with no elevator! Therefore, we had to carry... More

The room was a nice standard Hilton room with a little kitchenette. Nice pools, nice staff, nice restaurants - but is it a really special resort experience? No. Perhaps a nice place to take the grand kids for a day at the pool, or have a business meeting, but honestly I expect a little more from a 'grand resort'. This... More

Enjoyed the closeness and back entrance to Legoland. Great activities and restaurant 20/20! The Hilton employees were excellent in customer service (as usual). Close to the beach, great fun room for the kids!

Just got back from 10 days at the HGVC MarBrisa. We had a one bedroom suite in the the newer section, building 69. I had called and requested to be in this location as I knew from other reviews that this section had a washer and dryer and was not close to Legoland. We had a lovely pool view and... More

We stayed at this location to hear the presentation to become hilton vacation members. The one bedroom suite was nicely furnished with a great first impression but as we stayed for our two day getaway, we found mold in the shower, leaky kitchen faucet and no washer/ dryer in the suite like the sample condo viewed . The presentation took... More

We have been owners with Hilton for 15 years and were disappointed because the property is not as nice as those in other parts of the US or Mexico. Our grand daughter loved Legoland and the pools at the resort. My husband enjoyed the golf course which was nice and very affordable. We will probably go back because the location... More

Do whatever you can to avoid this place. We attended as part of the Hilton Grand Vacations Timeshare Presentation which was extremely informative and helpful; however, that was the best part of the trip. First and foremost, the smoke/firm alarm went off every time we showered; despite notifying management, the problem persisted. Second, despite notifying management we were traveling with... More
