Everything was in order with great recreational facilities, guest support, attractive grounds. Have stayed in studio, 1 bedroom and two bdrm. All have had great beds. Hard to beat the location, easy access to most SoCal attractions.

Good place. Nice one bedroom apartments. A good place for families or to get away from stress. I like Hilton and Hilton Grand Vacations and MARBRISAis a very good place to spend a week or longer. We plan to visit again. Sales pitch (time shares) has sometimes uncomfortable periods.

Great location next to Legoland and great for all things No County. Lovely property. We stayed in an older standard 2BR and a newer studio, separated by a few days. The older units on "Paradise Point" have no elevators. The newer units (presumably built by Hilton) are lower on the hill and do have elevators. We own two other timeshare... More

not a good resort for couples who are looking for quiet time at the pool and nearby attractions. We made day trips to Coronado Island, La Jolla, the San Diego Zoo, Gaslamp Quarter and Palm Springs, but we did way too much driving. For families interested in Legoland, Sea World, the Zoo and the beach, this resort works. Restaurants in... More

We are owners here. I have stayed at other Hilton GVC locations and this one is pretty plain. Especially for being new. The rooms are nice, but smaller than some others, and you are pretty much on your own, not much staff around. The recreation center and amenities are well kept and nice, but they are also brand new so... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit. Everything was nice. Parking was easy. Elevator was close o(we stayed in building 58). We were a 5 minute walk to the main pool. A 10 minute walk to the smaller pool and rec center. We didn't visit legoland, but definitely see the advantages of staying here if you were visiting. The private... More

We are HGVC owners but not at this location. This was our second visit. This time we had a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit on the second floor. Be aware the "older" units do not have elevators so the second levels are actually at street level. The new reception area is completed. The check in process was very good. There... More

Background - stayed in a 1 bedroom w/ full kitchen villa with my family (2 kids) for 6 nights. I had an amazing time simply because the staff (front desk, concierge, housekeeping, and maintenance) was so friendly, accomodating, and helpful from start to finish. The room was nice and clean, and the kitchen was fully equipped. I was able to... More

Difficult accommodations for traveling alone with a 12 month old - stairs, no elevator. Very drab looking exterior - driving in, I was like, glad I'm not staying THERE. But I was. The beautiful resort next door is the Sheraton, it has a gorgeous restaurant, gorgeous pool area, the Marbrisa is just so drab. A bedroom resort really - just... More

We had visited here and previewed two times over last few times and disappointed so our expectations were low for location/resort. However, were delightfully surprised by the new pools and pool café. The service during the week at pool café was mediocre, but got better for the weekend. When we return to CA we will not hesitate to stay here.... More
