It was a great stay for a large family. The rooms were good size and comfortable. There were multiple tv's, which helps with a large family with varied tastes in shows. The internet was great. Kitchen was clean and very useful in the morning to cook breakfast.

The grounds are fabulous as well as the staff - devoted to an excellent experience. Very supportive of family or just adults. Lego land is 3 minutes away as well as other wonderful adventures for everyone a short distance away. Born in San Diego, I have to come back periodically and this is a perfect location to go just about anywhere and enjoy my city. We ended up going to the Del Mar fair and just BBQ around the pool the rest of the time. We found out it is a salt water pool and the experience was exceptional.

first, we will stay here again so all comments are meant to provide constructive criticism: the lobby was underwhelming, small and did not flow well (although we understand it is temporary). The new lobby I am sure will be much nicer. The bar at the new pool was closed while we were there and pool side service for food and drink would have been nice. The new lower pool area is fantastic however! Theme park is noisy at most all hours, but that is to be expected. Also, the local airport noise was 'noticeable'. The music from the smaller east pool was loud (heard from our room) and I would think that it would be directed so that it was contained within the area? Pedestrian access from the south buildings would also be a welcome addition. Our room (5131) was isolated from the resort amenities and required either a long walk, or a drive in the car. We could see the ocean from our room, so that was nice. Some of our kitchen utensils were not clean (the steak knives) I also killed a cock roach in the kitchen (although I did not tell my wife...) The TV programming for local channels was non HD. We are looking forward to the new units near the new pool to be available, as this will be a marked improvement to the resort options, and would bring us back (assuming the bar/food is open next time :))

DON'T BE TRICKED! WHAT HOTEL OR RESORT KEEPS YOUR FULL PAYMENT IF YOU CANCEL 6 MONTHS OUT???? HILTON GRAND PACIFIC RESORTS, THAT'S WHO!!! We were approached by Grand Pacific Resorts outside LEGOLAND gate in December 2012. We were offered $100 gift card if we signed up for a $249 future 3 night vacation packet including a required 2 hour sales pitch while there. The saleswoman told us that if after 1 year we could not attend, we would ONLY be charged for the $100 gift card - I never go for these "deals", but it was LEGOLAND and it seemed legitimate so we signed up - too bad I didn't make sure her exact sales pitch was in the paperwork. Firstly, they charge your card immediately for the $249. We received a couple calls early in 2013 to ask when we wanted to book but they only took reservations 90 days out. We told them we would be coming back in the summer. When we called to book for summer we were told they were completely booked through the end of August. School starts back Aug 7, so we would not be able to use our package as we couldn't manage another out-of-state trip by December. We are now informed NO REFUNDS. THIS IS A SCAM AND LEGOLAND SHOULD NOT BE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS. A very expensive lesson for us and we will make sure to let everyone know it is no deal!!! Make sure what the salesperson says is written on the paperwork -they will promise ANYTHING to sell the package!!! SHAME ON YOU HILTON!

Amazing views, great new pool and awesome fire pit. Friendly staff. Carlsbad is a great place to spend time with family and friends. Close to San Diego. Relaxing. Family loves the new gym. There is some construction going on but we plan on coming back when renovations are complete. We will be back.

We experienced a Studio Unit at the Marbrisa Phase II and 1-Bedroom Unit and 2-Bedroom Unit at the Marbrisa Phase I. Funishings were up to date, very clean, and the Beds were very comfortable. The resort accommodations in all of three (3) types of Units were wonderful.
