My husband and I bought into the Hilton Grand Vacation Club in Breckenridge CO. Within the network we find ourselves in Southern California every year on vacation and really enjoy our 1 bedroom condo at the Marbrisa. The full kitchen, laundry, nice pools, grills and overall facilities are nice and in great condition. Its good value and a good location... More

We first stayed at Marbrisa 7 years ago when only one or two buildings were here. This time, we specifically came here for it's location near Legoland. Having a back gate into the park, a short distance from our unit is awesome. We used our points to rent a 2 bdrm lockoff with park view. Our unit (bldg 68) overlooked... More

The accomodations are excellent and the staff provided excellent customer service. I was pleased with the quietness and restfulness that I had at the resort--- comfortable bed and sleeped well. There is no elevator so I would at my next visit to reserve a level that I do not have to take the stairs.

I do not why HGVC chose this location - even with its private entrance to Legoland [really?]...no golf, small pool, restaurant in the adjacent Sheraton, slight view of the ocean [2 miles away]. It is a hotel and it is a timeshare and you are gently accosted by the concierge on sight [who asks the same questions without remembering that... More

This is in a beautiful area above Legoland. That being said, our room backed up to the roller coaster/kids area of the park so there was alot of noise in the mornings, throughout the day. The room was clean, very comforable. We had a queen bed, would be nicer to have a King bed. We were told we were in... More

We were impressed with the level of care by the staff and the quality of the accommodations. We were looking for a place for a quiet, restful site, and this fit the bill. We are Hilton Grand Vacations owners and booked the stay using our owner points.

I did not realize until after I booked that there was construction going on (found out through another website, not Hilton). When I found this out I tried calling the hotel to ask fro a room away from all the noise. I could barely locate a phone number and when I did no one answered. I called repeatedly for over... More

After check out, I left laptop charger wire on the outlet. Called the customer service and room service three times, have!nt got answer if the hotel found the charger wire or not. I do!nt really expect to find the lost item in US hotels. I would had quick respond from the customer service in Japan or in Taiwan.

...if you're going to Legoland. There is a separate entrance/exit to Legoland just for Marbrisa (and Sheraton - adjacent property) guests from the parking lot. The SD Safari Park is about a half hour drive from this location.

Typical timeshare property. Next to lagoland, and close to San Diego attractions. We were told we would have a king size bed but ended up with a queen. Needed to attend a 2 hour presentation of the property for time share purposes.
