As we arrived at Mabrisa, My grandmother made some request. While speaking to front desk I notice lady would cut her eyes and make facial gestures when my grandma turned her head. Very unprofessional. I told hers and she said not to worry but I post this instead

In the Hilton Family, this is a wonderful Resort. We spent 2 weeks relaxing in a spacious 1 Bedroom Condo with lots of Pools & Hot Tubs. We were close to the Cove Bar & Grill, so the Cabanas, Hammocks & lots of Chairs for everyone. The Staff from Check-in, Housekeepers,

$22.00 per day for parking is wrong. We pay to stay, we pay to rent a car, and now we pay to park our car outside in an open parking lot? This is ridiculous! Come on Marbrisa, take off your crazy daily parking fee. This will be our last time staying here as long as they

We enjoyed our weekend at the MarBrisa Carlsbad Hilton Resort. Rooms were clean and spacious. Property was beautiful and lots of activities going on. The town of Carlsbad is close and nice to visit. Close to the beach and plenty of restaurants available.

I visited the MarBrisa resort in mid-October for my annual birthday trip. Checking in was effortless and I really appreciated that the resort provided me with a discount card for some of the local businesses. I used the card for my spa day and had the best time. The resort

Yes, several pools and they are heated and very nice.

The beach is quite a close drive to the MarBrisa Carlsbad Resort, however, it is on the other side of the I-5, so not walkable. The resort is at least a 30 min drive to San Diego, more when there is traffic (which is almost always). I'm sorry I don't know anything about shuttles or train. Probably best to call the resort & ask for their assistance.

Is it true there are no elevators to upper floors?
Hello, from what I understand, it depends what phase of the property you stay in. Phase 1 does not have elevators, but phase 2 may have. I contacted HGVC regarding the room types and they said rooms in phase 2 may or may not have elevators. I would contact the resort directly to get a better understanding of the different buildings.

Are the pools heated year round?
Yes, we did 2 of the Cove Pools - they were heated. Of course, they'll be warmer now as the weather helps any pool. I floated for an hour almost every day during our 2 weeks.

"Get a room far away from Legoland."
"We were on the bottom floor and we did not hear anyone above us."
"Many balconies face Legoland, which is magical for kids."
"We stayed in building #53 and it was excellent. Did not hear any road noises."
"If you are staying in a 3bedroom unit, you will be far from everything the resort offers."
