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

Recently stayed at the HGVC Marbrisa. Upon arrival, we were a little confused as to where to check in. There were no obvious signs that says HGVC Marbrisa check in. After finding the main building, adjacent to the main pool, we located the lobby. Check in was quick and the clerk was polite and cordial. She explained everything to us... More

Beautiful resort, but too many issues with the pool/jacuzzi overcrowed and tv not working and description of the room I booked vs what I got. It's close to Lego Land and the Carlsbad Outlets so it's got that going for it.

Our room was inundated with ants! We called guest services and no one came! There is no bell hop to help with all the luggage to your room. The manager seems to be ineffective and not care about his guests. We check out early because of the insect problem, we explained our issue with front desk supervisor and Manager did... More

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
