We booked 3 rooms for our grown daughters and their families (two granddaughters each) and us. Walking to Legoland was easy, but they had the most fun at the huge swimming pools which never seemed crowded. My only comment was that, in our building (58) the closest grill was three buildings away. With 10 people staying, we definitely cooked for... More

Nice and close hotel to visit Legoland. We got a small studio from the marketing department with a Queen bed and a sofa bed. That was small for a family of 4. We enjoyed the private entrance to Legoland.

Beautiful and so convenient to Legoland. Just park and walk to the attraction. Super for families. Also convenient to San Diego attractions but you will need a car to visit San Diego. We will definitely come back.

The Hilton Grand Vacation Club in Carlsbad is in a great location and the resort offers very good services. LEGOLAND is visible from the resort and the beach is very near. Good restraurants in Carlsbad and the weather was terrific. We choose the studio for our family of four. It was just adequate with a small kitchen area but we... More

Glad you had a great time with us and were able to take advantage of our great location to many family filled attractions. The next size up from our studios is our one bedroom suites that are perfect for families since they come with a full kitchen. Most of them also have washer and dryers to enjoy all the comforts...

My kids enjoyed the pools and ability to walk into LEGOLAND without waiting in line. For a family stay it works for barbequing, game room, fire pit at pool and Friday night movie, activities throughout the week.

Sounds like a blast and having the private entrance into Legoland is so convenient for taking some breaks and avoiding the parking charge at the main entrance. Our Activities team has a great calendar of activities for folks young and young at heart and our fire pits located around the Resort is such a great way to end a fun... More

The Carlsbad Marbrisa resort was beautiful and very convenient. Our room was clean and comfortable. I would stay there again if I had an opportunity. The location was especially convenient to Legoland (within walking distance). There is also a private Legoland entrance and exit for resort participants. The resort location was very convenient and I saved money on parking at... More

My room overlooked Leggoland...not much of a view. Unless you like the constant drone of kids shouting, it was a bit noisy. No elevator in the building and had to carry luggage down and then up the stairs. Refrigerator did not work and they did not seem to know that. Other than that, it was OK, but not what you... More

My wife and I have been time-share owners with Hilton for many years and have always been very satisfied with all the different Hilton properties we have stayed at. Our stay at Grand Pacific Mar Brisa Resort was for only four days this time as we were in Carlsbad for our grand-daughters wedding. We have stayed as long as a... More

Rooms were not cleaned properly (spider webs in windows and patio furniture, dead flies in window sills). The mattress in the studio was apparently a Queen, although it felt like a Full. No facial tissue, dirty towels still left in room. This is not what I expect from Hilton.

Thank you for the feedback and apologize about the lack of cleanliness in your suite. We do have a detailed checklist to ensure that we provide each unit in "like new" condition and obviously we did not do our part to set the platform for a great vacation. Your comments will be shared with my team so that we can... More
