This trip to Carlsbad was to be laid back. This was the perfect resort. We hung by the pool, BBQ' on the sites gas bbq. We played ping pong, football, pool and sang karaoke. Close to beach and La Jolla for sightseeing.Our boys 9 and 5 had an amazing time! Coming back with friends this fall.

Not kid friendly, staff not accommodating, room was run down and not fixed up prior to arriving. We will not be staying here again, I would rather trade in my points to stay at a hotel. We were told early check in could be accommodated, never happened even though we arrived three hours early. NO children's activities, they had a...

Nice pools and hot tubs. Resort was nice. Staff very friendly. Nice gas fire pit in pool area. Rooms were good, as always Hilton comfy beds. We had 2 bedroom that was actually a one bedroom plus studio with adjoining door, worked out nice as we were traveling with our sister in law.

Location is great if you are going to Legoland. Pool was nice and the location was well staffed and clean. Very family friendly. Had a couple minor service issues, but they made a effort to try and please. I hope their follow through improves in the future. Overall, the positives outweigh the negatives and at the off-season rate that I...

We loved Marbrisa for many reasons! Quality, comfort, space and convenience. The 2br ground floor villa was well appointed and spacious. We were in bldg 65 right by pool area. BBQ area steps away too. We went into Legoland today, private entrance to the park from our parking lot. So easy and convenient. We saved money by cooking in our...

Great for a family vacation. New and newer facilities. Large pools in Cove area with bar/bar food and smaller pool up the hill in the original facilities. Adjoins Legoland so good for access but noisy during the day due to repetitive pre-recorded loudspeaker messages. With a car (absolute necessity) can drive to Safari Park, Birch Aquarium, beaches such as Moonlight...

We stayed at marbrisa this past week for my sons spring break. The hotel is nice enough. The pool area was fun. While the pool itself was okay, the games surrounding the pool area really made time at the hotel enjoyable for us and our two children. We enjoyed the room as it had a nice kitchen area. We stayed...

My family and I enjoyed our stay at MarBrisa by Hilton. Our villa was extremely clean and well appointed. The private entrance to Legoland makes this property an absolute mess when staying in the area. All the staff were super hospitable and eager to help. Although there was a bit of construction going on in the near by building, it...

This is a nice property. I was invited to stay in the new building at Marbrisa as part of their pitch to sell a time share. The property is nice and the room was clean, however, when we arrived at our room it was in an older building. When I called the front desk to ask why they had not...
