We thoroughly enjoyed are stay at MarBrisa not only because it was a beautiful and clean accommodation with direct access to LegoLand, but also because the resort in itself is a getaway to be content. The family activities from s'mores to champagne which included apple ciders for the kids made us feel right at home. What made our experience even... More

We absolutely loved our 1 week stay at MarBrisa. Everyday there was a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy. We loved the Reese's Smores especially. Joela was especially accommodating, she even gave us tips on where to eat at local restaurants. She's so adorable! Good people skills, so pleasant and helpful in every thing we needed. We came...

The hotel is a Hilton Grand Vacation Property and is very nice. We flew in and out of San Diego and is nearly a two hour drive with traffic to Carlsbad. Carlsbad is a lovely city and we enjoyed the shops and restaurants there. It was convenient fro day trips to LaJolla and Oceanside. The weather was perfect the week... More

The manager resolved problems in getting my Wall Street Journal delivered in a timely basis. Elia from housekeeping secured a suitable chair for my wife so that my wife can apply her makeup in the morning. Staff goes out of their way to make our stay enjoyable

Stayed in a studio room for a business trip at a surprisingly cheap rate for what this place offers. Comfortable room with a view of the garden and pool. Huge pools and nice hot tubs. Off season so it wasn't crowded at all. Friendly staff too. I will stay here again next time I need to be in town!

The time share representative was so pushy. I spent 2 hours telling him no...and he still kept trying to get me to buy. After you are done with one rep, they send you to another rep that you have to say no to. The WORST part is that when I expressed concerns that my parents wouldn't be happy if I... More

I'll preface my review with the fact that I was at the resort due to a promotional visit. I'll leave that part aside as it was too humorous and would take way too long to discuss here. The studio we stayed in was nice. It had everything that you'd expect. The conveniences that were lacking in our room were nightstands... More

This is a gentrified motel. Poor service response from desk. Musty room. Room overlooking power lines. Pool inconvenient to get to. One laundry for two buildings. Few toiletries in room on arrival. No No one seems to care here. Overall grounds bland. This was not worth a 5000 point stay at my timeshare, more like 3400 point stay. I texted... More

The pool area with beautiful palm trees and hot tubs along with games and pool bar make for a fun stay! The villas are luxurious and well appointed. I recommend this property to couples and families. We will be back!
