“Creme de la Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Great rooms; beautiful ocean and sunset views; cool sea breezes; beach across street; sidewalk along coast favorite for strolling, running, bicycling; pool, hot tubs, gym and rec room clean and well staffed; front desk people friendly and helpful; twenty consecutive years award winning resort; walk to beach, restaurants, shops, Starbucks.
Our family and friends have enjoyed Tamarack and Carlsbad for 25 years, summer and winter.
We look forward to many more.

Room Tip: Every room facing the ocean is good.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

My sister and I stayed on the first floor facing the ocean (awesome view!). I was a little concerned about the noise after reading the other reviews but it was not that bad; in fact we barely noticed it when the sliding glass door was closed and we were not bothered by it when sitting on the balcony. The accomodations and staff were excellent. The room was spacious and having the mini fridge was a bonus. The beds were very comfortable and the third flood viewing deck made a great place to watch the sunset. The courtyard area was beautiful and very well done. The only challenge was the air conditioner; it was a little noisy (maybe that's way we didn't notice the traffic sounds) and blew directly on the beds. I just wish I had a reason to return regularly. I would definitely recommend the Tamarack Resort.

I have been staying at this resort for over 5 years and its great for kids the activities were so fun and they even had wine and cheese for the adults. It's great for spring break. We always stay in the same room which is a courtyard room nice and quite and great access to the pool and recreational room. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. It's nice too because you can walk right across the street and there is the ocean and restaurants. You really don't even have to get into your car until its over. I will never stop going to Tamarack.

Room Tip: We have always stayed in room 117 its a corner and it's quite.

My family and I stayed on the first floor (hotel portion). The room was a good size and very clean with a mini refrigerator. The staff was nothing but pleasant and always helpful. My kids loved the recreation room and pool area (I think they preferred that to the actual ocean). Everyday offers a different activity like a puzzle contest or coloring contest. On Wednesday night, we all played in a Bingo tournament which was so much fun. We walked away with some great prizes. The hotel has excellent beach access. There is a light and crosswalk right there that we took our wagon across. We highly recommend this hotel.

We were given a room slightly before check in which was nice. the staff was pleasant.... unfortunately we were on the bottom floor and all we could see or hear was traffic... Had a nice stay...but may look for something away from the main roads in the future.

We stay here every time we visit Carlsbad. Clean, spacious rooms, patios and accommodating staff. We stay on the 1st floor and love the gorgeous panoramic ocean view. Great location for beach access and Carlsbad Village restaurants and shopping. Love the Tamarack!

Room Tip: We enjoyed rooms 113 and 115 when my husband and I traveled with my parents and brother. The rooms...

We stayed in a a two bedroom suite on the third floor (343) The unit was very spacious and had beautiful views of the ocean across the street. This property is very well maintained, the staff extremely friendly and the location was convenient to restaurants and shopping.
