We booked into this hotel for a 7 night stay in September 2011. We had a usual Hilton top notch room and the staff were very accommodating. It is literally across the street from Legoland in Carlsbad, California. There is a short walk across the street and you end up at the back end of Legoland entrance, which means not too many people waiting in lines as they use the other entrance. I highly recommend Legoland for toddlers up to teens. My children had a blast.
After checking out the pool area and the grounds of Hilton Palisades Resort I noticed that they had a timeshare presentation going on everyday. I went up to the desk and asked, yes, I know, I asked for a presentation. They scheduled hubby and I the next day and said our children could go to the kids club while were attending the presentation. So hubby reluctantly came with me and we had a lovely timeshare rep named Olivia. She was wonderful not pushy and very conversational. We toured the one bedroom and the two bedroom which had just recently been upgraded to Hilton standards. Absolutely beautiful. Hilton is in the process of building Phase two across the street closer to Legoland and it will have a spa and more pools, tennis courts etc.. After spending time and looking at the blueprints of Phase Two my hubby and I bought a week but we wanted two weeks and a two bedroom. Unfortunately they did not have two weeks in one calendar year so we booked an odd and an even year. Because of Hilton Vacation Club not having what we wanted they also gave us Bonus Points to be used at any property or RCI, Cruise, Rv whichever we chose. The people that own here are very nice and friendly. We just booked to go back to Hilton Grand Vacations Club at MarBrisa for Spring Break April 2012 and when we booked they didn't have a two bedroom available so we are staying in a 3 bedroom plus. We are so excited to be going back. You are not on the beach at this Vacation Club but the sunset views over the water sitting having a cocktail from your front porch more than makes up for that fact. We are anxiously awaiting to go to one of the firepits they have set up outside and making smores with the kids. Something we saw other families doing but we just never made it over there. The fitness centre is very clean and spacious and the adult pool is quiet and children are allowed in there but not at night as the adults like to have quiet time. The Children's pool is large and they have a spray park next to it where the kids had a blast. Legoland now has a waterpark made out of lego and our kids loved being there during the day and the pool at the resort at night. I highly recommend this Vacation Club. The restaurant on site is very good and the children loved making waffles at the buffet breakfast during the mornings. The Sheraton is next door and you can use their spa and eat over there if you wish. Why would you? Downtown Carlsbad has some amazing resaurants that cater to children. The beaches are great and the people in Carlsbad are fantastic. Costco is down the road and across the street and the premium outlets are less than 2 miles away. It will be lovely to sit on our porch and see the fantastic Carlsbad Flowers in Bloom this time we are there as we are both avid gardeners and in September they had already bloomed. I highly recommend this Hilton Vacation Club at MarBrisa.
