My family love coming to Marbrisa the staff is welcoming and we always have a great vacation. The activity center has great things for kids. William and Jorge are the best they really care if you are having a great time.

We visited in May of 2012. The flower fields were so beautiful and I doubt there are rooms at MarBrisa that do not have a view. April to May is probably the best time to go to see the flowers in full bloom, however, they do have different flowers blooming year-round. Legoland is right next door. This is one of the newly aquired HGVC properties and it is very nice.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room.

We had a wonderful time at the Marbrisa. The accomodations were wonderful and the view of the ocean was great. The staff was very friendly and very nice. The noise from Legoland was non existant. i would reccomend this resort to anyone.

This hotel / resort is great. We stayed on the Legoland side and did not notice the noise as other reviewers talked about. Our unit was a two bedroom ground floor. It walked out to views of the ocean in the distance and a nice grass area. Very clean and well set up rooms and bathrooms! Mellissa at check in was great with info. The hotel is about 35 mins north of the SD Zoo and Sae World but the drive was not bad. The downtown Carlsbad area was 2 minuets from hotel with tons of places to eat and shop. The pool was great. The golf course The Crossings at Carlsbad was very nice and a short walk from out hotel room. They also have the Canyons restaraunt at the golf course that is very good (much better then the 20/20 at the Sheridan hotel which is also on the same property). overall I would go back and if you get the chance book it for a fun relaxing weekend!

Mar Brisa in Carlsbad, Calif. is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the Southern Calif. Coast. The resort is beautifully maintained, outside, and in the rooms as well. Ben Sjodin, the resort manager, is doing an excellent job making Mar Brisa a first class place to visit. Everyone working at the resort is helpful and friendly. I heartily recommend Mar Brisa for family vacations or couples' get aways. Don Castle

I"m a HGVC member and was impressed with property, landscaped well and service was excellent. Was about as close to Legoland as you can get without being there and had no problem with the noise. It was fun to here the little & big kids screaming on the roller coaster. Members get a 1 hr pass to park if you just want to check it out. You can also see the fireworks @ 9pm from hotel. Only downside was no elevators so if you were on either the top or bottom floors of the 3 story building you"ll have to drag your bags up and down stairs. No washer/dryers in units.

Hi a12barblues,
We're happy to hear you had a great time during your most recent stay with us at Hilton Grand Vacations Club at MarBrisa and were impressed with our property. Legoland is tons of fun and very convenient from our resort, you should definitely spend a day there if you can and come back to relax in your room! We hope that we'll be having you back again soon!
