“MarBrisa, Carlsbad, California”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

An excellent family resort in every way. Next door to Legoland in Carlsbad, CA, and 30 minutes from San Diego the the many attractions around this great seaport city.. We loved it and shall return. MarBrisa is now on our top 10 list of places to revisit.

I booked this hotel based on it's proximity to Legoland, not realizing that it's immediately adjacent to Legoland! We had a beautiful view of the water off in the distance. The rooms were very comfortable and I wish we could have stayed longer.

We were on a road-trip and it was very nice to be able to unpack the cooler and eat breakfast in our suite. I was able to purchase milk and orange juice at the Sheraton right across the street.

We ate at the Sheraton as well. If you have children, it is brilliant- you walk in and there's an all-you-can-eat kids buffet that's open and ready to feed your hungry kids. Our son was thrilled with the kid friendly options- mac n' cheese, fruit, french fries, chicken strips, etc. It was nice to have him eat while we perused the menu. He was so full and happy that he ultimately fell asleep in his chair (which allowed us to actually finish that bottle of wine!)

Excellent experience and one I'd return to again and again.

Green Features: Loved to see the various recycling bins throughout the resort. A refreshing change.

Ok the location is the the formost for LEGOLAND. then the amenities are unbeatable,. the rooms are so clean with great views, and the office staff
were very very helpful ad accomedating. If you stay here you will not be
disappointed. the rooms are fully equipped with everything you could want.
the parking is great and free. we will definitely treat ourselves here again.

Room Tip: oh yes ask for a room with the ocean view, it may be in the distance, however it is a total treat.

We are locals in the area and really enjoyed the property and the staff. We found the location perfect for our Lego Land experience and the pool area was very large and accommodating. We will plan to stay at this location again and look forward to more time as a family together. We purchased the annual passes at Lego Land so this is the ideal spot. It even included a special back gate entrance for hotel guests.

Great, relaxing stay. We really enjoy this location. The resort is first class and near several fun places to go. This resort is so much better than a "hotel room" type place. Many vacationers settle for only a room and bed when they can get so much more for the same costs.

The location to Legoland, the ocean, & downtown Carlsbad was great. The view I had in villa 52 was fantastic. The smaller pool was clean, quiet & had a view. The "big pool" you needed a shuttle to get to & had no view. The big pool was also dirty for as few people were in there. The rooms are ok. Nothing special or fancy about them. Clean & decorated in a current style, but no upgrades. I was acosted 3 times to buy a time share. I am already a HGVC owner. I told you no once. You should not be calling me in my room to try to sell me. When I need conceirge service you should not be trying to sell me, AGAIN. I have been to other HGVC properties & never had this experince. For that reason alone, not sure if I would go back.

Family stayed in a two bedroom, two bath unit. Room was in building 53. Very quiet location but far from new section, new pool. My view was a partial golf course and cuk-de-sac view. Furnishings were new, kitchen new. Fully stocked for cooking. Trash and towel service are available daily upon request. Beds are done on fourth night. Housekeeping staff was friendly. Had to call front desk more than once to report that housekeeping forgot to remove old towels when replacing new ones. Even so had a great stay. Very clean, well maintained property. Note- This hotel has exterior hallways. The other property (Grand Pacific) has interior ones.
