We booked early as HGVC Elite. We previewed the resort last year and decided to reserve a 3 bedroom plus sunset view, only to discover the 3 bedrooms are far away from the resort and the room assigned was downstairs. No elevator and my wife is blind.

We loved everything about the Marbrisa! The rooms are spacious and well equipped with everything you would possibly need for a relaxing family vacation. The sofa bed was actually comfortable and I have 2 herniated disks and have a hard time with beds. The close proximity to the restraint at the Sheraton was wonderful, their breakfast is the BEST!

If you want to go to Carlsbad or San Diego this would be a great option. The hotel has a great location, next to Legoland and beaches, a short drive would take you to Carlsbad downtown and attractions. The hotel is new so everything works properly and the installations are great. It is highly recommended if you are traveling with... More

Two years in a row I have gone to MarBrisa to celebrate my birthday. This year was the big 50! I did exactly what I wanted to do. I went to the beach, I shopped at the shops and had good sushi along with enjoying the pool. If you're bothered by Legoland being close by don't be! Our place was... More

Marbrisa resort is our home away from home. We visit the property about 4-6 time a year. The property itself is quite new, and they are still constructing additional villas. The rooms are quite spacious and offers useful amenities, especially for those traveling with kids (stove tops, fridges, microwaves - and those are in the studio rooms. 1 and 2... More

The accommodations are wonderful, the staff is outstanding and helpful, and the location is excellent, with attractions close by. For families planning to go to Lego Land, it would be impossible to find anywhere closer to stay. Marbrisa is very freeway accessible to many attractions in the area - Del Mar race track and Sea World among them, and the... More

We signed up for 3 nights weekend stay for $275 plus $150 for upgrade to a 1 bedroom for going to the HGVC sales presentation.

Beautiful resort. Perfect for our family needs. Wish there were ocean views or closer to the beach. Kids liked the pool and we loved the firepit at night. Carlsbad Village was close by and a cute little town.
