I was a little apprehensive about staying at MarBrisa because of our last visit. The last time we stayed we were in one of the older units and it was tired and looked dirty. The sofa and chair had oil stains at "head level" and the sofa cushions sunk into the sofa bed making it very uncomfortable to sit on....

A very comfortable family facility. Safe and comfortable and away from crowds. Well maintained and close to unique beach town with clean and safe beach front. Minutes from other attractions and great airport in San Diego. Modern and solid.

We checked in to a broken and dirty room after the staff wasted 20 minutes of our time just to check in. The hot tub was cold on the first night, we were not given pool wristbands and had to go back to get them. The gate to the kids park would not open, the baseboard in our room was...

We booked a 3 bedroom unit months in advance for our anniversary but an unexpected surgery for my husband happened a week before our scheduled stay. Although I requested an ADA compliant unit the last minute, the manager was very helpful and found us a unit that accommodated my husband's needs. The weather wasn't very good that week but Chris...

The place is beautiful, Carlsbad was beautiful, rainy but the area is breathing taking and clean , clear air and open spaces. The staff was the greatest!! The staff provided all information for movie theatres, restaurants, and shopping with maps and recommendation.

This is a great location for families w kids due to it's proximity to Legoland & the beach. But it is not a good resort for a romantic vacation for a couple. Rooms are functional, but not luxurious. Traffic noise was bothersome. Our hot tub was across the street & up the hill in another set of buildings. Location is...

This represented very pleasant and peaceful entry into the new year. All amenities as expected. Although the resort was full, it didn't feel crowded or noisy. We did not use many of the facilities, but were contacted by concierge at some point. Thank you!

We stayed in a new portion of the resort. The condo was spacious and well maintained. The staff was exceptionally responsive to our needs. We also like the location of the resort in Carlsbad. The air conditioning was very appealing with separate controls in the living room and bedroom.

Beautiful area of town overall but resort did not meet our expectations as HGVC owners at all. Upon arrival was greeted and checked in quickly. Upon arriving to room found hair in the bathroom sink tub and toilet and a partially used bar of soap in the shower. Rooms were advertised as great viewers...our view was of a constriction barrier...
