Perfect location between South Orange County and San Diego. We love to stay here and visit both. Great location next to the Carlsbad outlets and Legoland. Peaceful. Pool, workout room and lots of places to walk. No restaurants on location but Costco is nearby as well as numerous eating places. The beach is just a short drive away

My husband and I were here for a week in San Diego. It is about 35 minutes away and using the coaster train gets you there in an hour and is easy to use. Disadvantage last train at 7:00pm. Rooms very nice. If you want to use the pool though make sure you ask for a room close to the... More

We booked this resort via an RCI Exchange in June. I took the time to ensure that our reservation was in the system as early as possible and told them that we would like a renovated room away from any construction on a 3rd floor with a washer/dryer. The helpful guest services agent noted the account. I then proceeded to... More

We stay here for our trip to Disneyland and really enjoyed ourselves. There are two pools(one with a warmer) and three jacuzzi from what I remember. If you're into working out, the gym facility was nice and clean and all of the equipment worked. As HGV owner at another location, I will definitely be back to stay and buy in.... More

As an HGV member, I should say that Marbrisa is still a work in progress..and should be given the chance to prove it's worth.When we got to our villa 58, the gutter by our unit is leaking(front door was flooded), our door could not lock from outside(good thing we checked before we leave) bathroom and floors were not that pristine(p***c...

Okay, so we are Elite Owners who own at another property. We have stayed in many Hilton properties and these are good, but need work to be the best. We stayed in a 3 bedroom and the property was very clean & comfortable. But we did have a few issues ... small things like the TV not working, hair-dryer not... More

MarBrisa is located right next to Legoland. By staying there guests park for free in hotel parking (avoiding parking fees at Legoland) and there is a private entrance into Legoland from this resort. The walk from the hotel parking to the private entry way is appx. 100 yards. Very convenient esp. if you have young children who needs a quick... More

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment for 6 nights for our family of 5 over the Xmas period and I cannot fault the rooms at all. We were very happy with our room on level 3. It was clean, quiet and the beds were heavenly. The wifi was good too. My only complaint is that I emailed the resort twice... More

My husband bought this "deal" that includes a "short presentati." if you like your fun planned and safe this might be for you. Manicured grounds. Heated Saltwater pool is a good alternative to the chemically-ladened. I had it to myself one chilly morning so was able to do laps - sort of. The configuration was more for splashing. Nice distant... More

Upon check in we were given a room with a wet carpet and then moved to a room overlooking the LEGOLAND parking lot. The second room we moved to that overlooked the parking lot was noisy as we could hear the kids screaming on the LEGOLAND rides.
