The overall experience at Marbrisa was very good. Staff was responsive to all of our needs, the pool area and work out room was very good. Overall stay was a pleasure. Carlsbad was a very nice community with easy access to the ocean. Access to downtown area was easy and there were plenty of restaurants.

Two Thumbs up. Great job by Raymond and Dana on advise on how to use Grand Pacific Palisades conversion to points so that I can now stay in a studio at MarBrisa for four more times during the week next summer. This information was awesome and will be taken advantage of by myself next summer so I can now use... More

Our family of four had a very comfortable stay. We booked in through Hilton Grand Vacations. We had a few extra requests and were told to call back later to check availability. When booking we requested in room laundry facilities and lifts to the room to make it easier travelling with two young kids. The complex didn't seem to be... More

I’m sure Legoland is great, but we need some grandkids before going there. We still had a great time and only scratched the surface of this region. Balboa Park, La Jolla, Coronado Island were all fun without horrible drives, especially if you avoid highway 5 north of Solana Beach. We stayed in an older studio unit and it was fine.... More

If you are looking to really relax but be close to everything and the best beach, this is the vacation place to be at. Marbrisa is start of the art family friendly resort. Carlsbad has such great restaurants and lovely shops all in this great walking friendly town.

FANTASTIC! Very clean, modern, quiet during 1st week of September. Access to LEGOLAND was great and no lines since local kids were back in school! Food was excellent and appreciated being able to utilize fitness facility, pools, and hot tub past 10:00 PM! LOVED IT AND WILL RETURN!!

Super friendly staff. Efficient check-in and check-out. The room was very comfortable. However, I could see that the furnishings were a bit "used" but not disgusting. Even Hilton's Kingsland units in Waikoloa show wear and tear. Would like to see a layout map of rooms and have the option to select building and room within the parameters of the booking... More

They have now completed the next phase with new pools, rec center, and main lobby area. It is very nice but very quiet when we arrived. School had just started in CA. I was a... More

Our accommodation were planned several years back and we were told it will be closer and walking distance to LEGOLAND. The room and building that was assigned to us (5012), were located in the first floor, and no elevator. There were 3 telephone calls to us at home verifying our stay weeks before our arrival. We were asked each time... More

We just spent 8 nights at marbrisa with our two children aged 10 and 13 in a one bedroom condo as members of HGVC. The resort is gorgeous. The pools are warm and beautiful and not crowded at all. The fire pit at night is particularly nice. The room was spacious and clean. The concierge was very helpful. Kids enjoyed... More
