Stayed at MarBrisa for the first time. Everything was perfect. Check in was smooth. Room was clean and it was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in hotel/resort wise. Pool is gorgeous and it's a great location. Shopping and beach are only minutes away. If we are ever back in Carlsbad we will definitely stay here.

We were very fortunate to have been treated to a free stay here and the suite we had exceeded our expectations. We had a two bedroom suite that would have easily fit a family of 5-7 (there are only 3 of us in our immediate family). We had a master bedroom with en suite bath and the guest bedroom had...

This is a repost that also sells timeshares. It has a nice pool area and the rooms are nice, but not much better than a nice hotel. They have 1 bedroom suites that have a king bed and sofabed in a separate room. They also have rooms with a single bed. All rooms have a refrigerator and microwave.

Outstanding home away from home! Be sure to make use of the fantastic 20/20 Restaurant located in the Sheraton side of the property. There are excellent restaurant venues in the nearby Outlets on Mile of Cars Road.

My third stay at the HGVC Marbrisa. Enjoyed my stay and will definitely return. The West Steak and Seafood restaurant is near by and one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Also very close to the premium outlets.

As an HGV owner, this is my 3rd time staying at the Mar Brisa while in Carlsbad. We stayed in Paradise Pointe during our first trip in a 1 bedroom corner unit on the 2nd floor with a nice view of the ocean in the distance. Our second time we stayed in the newer Cove area in a 2 bdrm...

What else could you asked for. Closed to the ocean, Legoland, shopping, golf courses, the Village and the Carlsbad flower fields in the Spring. Half hour drive to San Diego and couple hours to Hollywood.

We have stayed at three Hilton Vacation resorts. They are a good alternative to a hotel. This was our third stay at this one. It is next door to the Sheraton Hotel. The unit was very clean and nicely appointed. Our view was over Lego Land to the ocean. The reason for only three stars? Construction noise! Not just during...

We stayed here because we are Hilton owners and wanted to visit Carlsbad. This property is different in that they share the Sheraton restaurant across the street as well as their gift/sundries store. The rooms are beautifully appointed (pretty much the standard room at any HGVC property). There is a large main pool with a bar, ping pong tables, hoop...
