This was our first trip to Carlsbad and everyone on the staff was friendly and always asked us if we needed anything! The pools are great and there are things for the adults and kids to do! We even got a stamp to mail a postcard at the front desk and they were awesome!

Although the resort staff was friendly and tried to be helpful, they couldn't do anything about the 2 main issues with this property - Location and Construction. The property is located next to Legoland and they get started at 6:30AM, very noisy. Also, you can hear everything that happens in the rooms above and beside you!!

It's a great place to stay. An elevator would really help instead having to climb stairs with heavy luggage. Everything is spread out. It is trek for some if the guest to get to the newer areas. I don't think you should have to walk do far or have to drive. Maybe offer complimentary shuttle service to certain places.

We just got back from a week's vacation at this property. We had a 3 bedroom/2 bath in building 54. We aren't owners in this timeshare property but did rent through another owner. Our condo worked out perfectly for our family of five. My parents took the Master Bedroom that had a nice King size bed. My husband and I... More

This hotel/Grand Vacations condo system is in a great location if you want to go to Legoland. There is even a private entrance with no waiting to the theme park! We were offered a discounted rate package in exchange for listening to a 90 minute timeshare offer (which we declined). The reasons why I gave this hotel just 3 stars... More

Overall resort was good, but room cleanliness and maintenance needs attention. Bring your own BBQ as the ones provided don't work (2 yrs in a row). The carpets in the room looked like a cheap hotel and we had to request them to be cleaned in both units and then they did not clean and we had to call again.... More

This timeshare is the worst that we have stayed in. There is no elevators - all stairs - which makes it difficult to unload a weeks worth of food, clothes and other items. It was right up against Lego Land and all we heard all day was the roller coaster gearing up - gearing down - gearing up - gearing... More

We just stayed at the Marbrisa and location is awesome- seconds from Legoland and minutes from the beach. We have a 3 year old and 1 year old and they both loved the pool areas at the resort on days we didn't go to Legoland. Plus, the hotel had other activities for kids and a Lego scavenger hunt. The rooms... More

My family traveled here from Missouri and we loved everything about this resort! Kid friendly, with plenty to do for adults, as well. Seconds away from Legoland and the beach...great amenities included with the resort pool, as well. We will definitely be back!!!

We bought into MarBrisa about 4 years ago when they were just getting the first building built. Since then they have added much. They now have elevators for those of us in wheelchairs or are handicapped. The pools are enormous and the spas are great. Activities of the kids and adults. Right next door to LEGOLAND. The rooms are very... More
