We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in one of the original units and enjoyed being by the pool, hot tub, and fire pit. Even though our room needed a little work it was nice. The beds were very comfortable and the unit was very spacious. I only wish there was an elevator.

The Marbrisa is constantly expanding their property. We stayed in one of the original units for two nights and were surprised to have been given a HUGE 3 bedroom room. Everything was as you would expect from a property managed by Grand Pacific Resorts. Always friendly and responsive staff - with the best towel art imaginable...

My family and I spent a week at Hilton Club Marbrisa in February and had a great time. It was located in an area which allowed us to easily drive to San Diego to see the Zoo and SeaWorld and it was right next to LEGOLAND. The weather was great, about 65-75 degrees all week and lots of sun. The... More

Overall a disappointment. Maybe I have been spoiled with Orlando and Las Vegas but this location did not meet my expectations for a HGV club. We arrived on Monday, February 16th. We experienced some travel issues due to weather so we contacted HGV Club on Saturday the 14th to let them know we would be arriving a day later than... More

Use to Love this Place...They are still building new phases but everything they are putting in seems to be outdated. The housekeeping staff doesn't have most of anything you ask for. need to step their Game....Hilton Brand is usually better

Fabulous and quiet resort on top of mountain with great views just above Legoland. Expansion of this resort in the future but current villas are great with new furnishings and very comfortable beds. Main pool is awesome.

Driving in to the MarBrisa Resort was a thrill. The grounds, the building and the recreational facilities were magnificent. The staff were very friendly, courteous and upbeat. The room was perfect in every way. Clean, spacious, inviting, and boasted a king size bed. The kitchen was large and was well equipped. The balcony overlooking the golf course was a treat... More

We stayed here for a short warm vacation away from the Minnesota cold! There were 7 of us in a 2-bedroom unit. The unit was comfortable and spacious enough, the service was great, whether we needed extra blankets when we checked in at midnight, or more shampoo after a few days. We did not get to use all of the... More

Very nice resort. Close to Legoland. Very quiet where we were at. Lighting in bathroom is too low. It was very difficult applying make-up every morning. Also had very nice view of ocean. Carlsbad is a beautiful place to visit. We may just retire there.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us and I have to agree Carlsbad is definitely a special place. I will look into the dim lighting you mentioned in the bathrooms. We do have makeup mirrors that illuminate which should help with getting ready. Hope to see you back at the Resort soon and let me know if you have any... More
