Marbrisa has beautiful grounds and wonderful place for a family vacation. Marbrisa is one of few resorts that have 3 bedroom accommodations that sleeps the whole family comfortablely. It sits in the center of everything.

We stayed here through a marketing deal - stay 4 days/3 nights for a cheap price and sit through a timeshare presentation. The suite was great - we paid to upgrade to a 1 bd suite which had a full kitchen, dining area and in-unit washer/dryer. We were placed in villa 66, which is part of the newer phase II... More

Due to it's proximity to Legoland, MarBrisa is very popular with the "preschool-elementary set". Most families at the resort had younger children and we watched many of them venture down the convenient private resort-only pathway into LegoLand each morning. But since we were traveling with our 16-year-old son, we had a different agenda. We spent time swimming in the pools,... More

Stayed for a weekend with our kids to get away. The air vent in our bathroom was filthy. It clearly had not been cleaned in a long time. While visiting the pool, my husband and I were alarmed by the fact that a pic axe was laying out on the sidewalk at a planting area and remained there for 2... More

Location is great and so are amenities - with condos for owners from Hilton Grand Vacations. The two bedroom condo we stayed is was spacious and perfect for our family of 5. The only drawback this time was that second bedroom had twon beds! Who uses twin beds anymore? They shoudl put queen beds in there. Also, some areas of... More

This review is for the new section which includes elevators. Note that the older section has no elevators and some rooms that are below ground level on one side. We are currently staying at the property and have been here for a few days. After viewing other reviews, I was concerned. Our family has had a very positive experience. My... More

The Hilton Hotel was very nice. The big rooms and kitchen made our stay very enjoyable. The staff was very nice and went out of their way to help. The two huge pools and four spas made it feel like we were the only ones there even though we were told that the hotel was full. The proximity to LEGO... More

The customer service was brutal. The pool kept running out of towels so we walked to what we thought was the front desk but ended up being the timeshare desk. Without even looking at us or saying anything, the woman pointed to the desk in front of her to tell us that its their job. Most of the staff at... More
