“Marbrisa resort, Hilton grand vacations club”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

The resort was overall very good with clean rooms and good location near Legoland. No decent restaurant on site. The pre-arrival service was poor because the Hilton member line needs to be improved a great deal.

We had a beautiful room with a great view of the ocean in the background. The staff was extremely responsive and nice and we will definately utilize this resort on our return trip to San Diego. However, we are still wondering how such a nice resort would intentionally decide to omit an elevator from its buildings. There are still steps to climb and groceries to transport but the room we were assigned was spectacular and extremely comfortable. We are still young enough not to have the absence of an elevator affect us, but I can see it might in the future. The new sections have incorporated this provision so I guess "All is well with the world". We had a great time and our appreciation is extended to the staff for all their support.

Hi vacationjulia,
It's great to learn of your recent stay and all the fun you had. The view of the ocean from our rooms is just spectacular. Our resort is still going under a few renovations, however, we certainly appreciate your feedback. We're looking forward to welcoming you back again when returning to San Diego!

First time at this Hilton Grand Vacation Club. We are owners and have stayed at two in Orlando and one in Vegas. Although I don't have any major complaints...This is place is not nearly as nice as the typical Grand Vacation Club. The walls and floors are very thin. The pool is nice but the poolside bar was never open. I travel a lot with work and I would put this place in the the same line as a Hampton. However, there is no free breakfast here....

Room Tip: Pick a top floor on the end. The celing and walls are thin

Love staying at this resort in Carlsbad. Beautiful resort, close to beach and surf, lots of nice shopping and fun places to go, and very spacious rooms that feel like a second home. Fabulous place to stay. Love returning for a visit every few months!

This was a beautifully decorated room with a very large bathroom and soaker tub. Outside our room was a tropical pool, like you'd see in Mexico. Perfect for a couple on a get away or an entire family!!

This resort is still under construction, however, the villas in the new section are wonderful. The pool area is lovely. The pool bar/grill was only open until 4pm on Saturday & Sunday, they could have stayed open until 6p or 7p and had plenty of customers especially since this is the only place open for food. (The onsite Sheraton has a nice restaurant that is available as well - we didn't use it but have heard it's very good - this is also where room service comes from). Construction went on right outside our villa - if you have the door closed and the air on (not really needed) you won't hear it...but it's not that bad...just go explore Carlsbad or hang at the pool...you'll forget all about it. Overall, a really nice spot (with ocean views!) - should be really great once finished.

I was pleasantly surprised at this location. Its right above LEGOLAND and central to San Diego and Orange County within an hour each way. We even had a view of the ocean from our suite. What I enjoy about this location is the home-y feeling. We stayed in a studio and it was very spacious, comfortable, clean and well appointed. I love the condo style resorts with the kitchenettes. Outside, our patio area overlooked the ocean and LEGOLAND, a barbecue area, sand volleyball court and had a nice grass area. Across from us we had the pool and lounge. This resort's main pool is huge- four Jacuzzis, two pools, one heated and bar/light bites terrace. Music was piped in - great atmosphere. Definitely up there with 5 star resorts. Really made me feel like I was in Cabo San Lucas - great Mexican vibe. Would definitely plan to come back!
