San Clemente, California
Reviewed 10 October 2016

It wasn't our first choice to stay near Legoland when my wife and I wanted a weekend at the beach yet Hilton places are always so nice, it was worth a try. The spacious new rooms were sharply decorated and made for a quiet, almost silent stay. It was a very relaxing visit.

This was our first visit to Carlsbad, California ... and I must say, we were impressed and want to return. The Marbrisa Resort is quite nice, but it is located on the hills away from the ocean so you will need transportation if you want to go anywhere. There is a Sheraton located close by that has a restaurant, but...

We love the relaxing atmosphere of MarBrisa. Carlsbad is a great place to stay. It's close enough to San Diego to make day trips but far enough to just go to the state beach or hang out at the beautiful pools. There are lots of fun places to eat, an outlet mall and Costco is just down the street. Can't...

We loved the area. Close to the ocean with plenty of shopping and restaurants close by. The pool area and hot tubs were kept very clean and plenty of towels were always handy. Coffee pot in room along with small kitchenette made breakfast on our own easy to handle.

Reviewed 7 October 2016

The unit we stayed in was okay but did not strike us as being connected to the Hilton Brand. The unit was clean for the most part but appeared to have unlaundred towels. The room decor was lacking and playground for the kids was closed. The pool area is beautiful. As a Mar Brisa owner, I was a bit disappointed....

We have stayed at Marbrisa 4-5 times and have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and courteous. The accomodations are clean and comfortable. We love the pool and the easy access to Legoland.

Starte our stay in Phase II near the new construction. Moved to a Phase I room after the first night. The pool and surrounding landscaping was very nice. Three hot tubs available. The Gym equipment was OK. If you are a family visiting Legoland it's a great location. There was a wolf howl that could be heard from 8:00 am...

We really enjoyed our stay here. A part of our stay included a time share presentation. The saleswomen was professional and I commend her job in pitching this resort to us. We were hard pitched by 3 different people but that was to be expected. The room itself was what one would expect. A large clean room with your typical...

Excellent location for people visiting Legoland equipped with a private entrance for people staying at Marbisa and the Sheraton. Lots of fun for the family. They have a playground for the children, two pools and hot tubs.

We love Marbrisa and try to visit at least once a year. The location is great as it is very close to the beach and close enough to San Diego to plan excursions but if you just want to hang out at the resort it is beautiful with plenty of things to do for a family.
