It's a beautiful resort, we really enjoyed it. We went to the Sea World one day. The rest of three days, we went to the beach in the morning and came back to the pool staying late until 8pm. The pool had a food/bar service, it's good food and convenient to my girls. Excellent service, too.

The Marbrisa is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is attentive and the new pools and buildings make it even better. I would recommend this property to anybody as a great family venue, it is very close to Legoland and San Diego is a 30-45 minute drive away.

We are owners at Marbrisa and each time we stay, the staff does an excellent job of catering to our needs. I highly recommend this resort for your next vacation. With Legoland within walking distance, it's a win win for all. There is something for everyone at Marbrisa.

We just returned from the Hilton Marbrisa resort. Stayed from 7/1 to 7/3. We checked in at 3:15pm with only one person staffing the front desk. There were no lines at the time. Went through all the paperwork process and then was told that the normal check-in time is at 4pm and we'll have to return to get the room... More

We come here every summer and enjoy the 5 star hospitality Marbrisa has to offer. The room is beautiful, the activities on site are fun and their staff is very helpful. Within driving distance to many great amusement parks. Love it!

The lobby area is beautiful and the pool is immaculate however.. and a fun place to hang out... I have been a Hilton... More

This is a tale of two phases...in phase 1 there are no washers and dryers in the rooms, they are small, and there are no elevators. Phase two has these amenities apparently. What staff were there were friendly but not very experienced or knowledgeable. Be prepared to wait for 15-30 minutes to talk to someone at the front desk or... More

If you are traveling with a family with LOTS of children, and they love to run around and make LOTS of noise all hours, this is the place for you!
