“Best Choice in Carlsbad”
Reviewed August 21, 2004

My wife, 10 year old son, and I spent two nights here in August. Nice, pleasant staff. Clean room, good amenities.

What made this such a great place is the recreation room with pool tables and ping ping, and the free boogie boards we could use at the beach just across the street.

Would highly recommend this place for families.

We can't stop raving about Tamarack! They offer a variety of adult and child-based activities, or you can do nothing at all. Centrally locatated in Carlsbad so you can walk to shops and restaurants. Or you can take Amtrak into San Diego. Directly across the street from the beach - you can hear the ocean from your room! We will definitely go back next year. See you there!

We have stayed in one of their 1 bedroom timeshare units a total of 4 weeks over the last few years. This Resort is one of our favorite and we have stayed in nice places in all the Hawaiian Islands, Florida, Georga, Tenn, SC, NC, Mexico and California destination Resorts.
The units are large, clean and quiet. There is a full kitchen with all the necessary equipment and supples. There is a restaurant on site and many others within walking distance. They have a exercise room and a recreation room with many activities going on each day. The staff is outstanding and you can choose from over 300 free movies. There is a pool and two hot tubs.
There is a section of the Resort that is available for hotel users on the first floor. Most of the parking is secured and underground but there is one lot on first floor.
There is a viewing deck & meeting room on the 3rd floor and the ocean & beach is right across Hwy 101. I just wish we had learned about this Resort years ago as it is just GREAT. The weather seems to always be delightful - a banana belt area in Southern California.

This was a great place to take a vacation with kids. It is right across the road from the beach. The hotel provides all of the beach toys and equipment that you wuld need for a great day on the beach.

This was an excellent hotel. The beach is right across the street so the view is great and there is very easy access. The hotel is within walking distance of Carlsbad village with shops and great restaurants. The hotel (pool and hot tub included) was extremely clean. Would stay here again or recommend to others.
