Decent outlets, not as much variety in terms of stores as I'm accustomed to. Wish they'd had J Crew, Ted Baker, a decent department store and all around more variety. But still some good stores and an adequate experience.

Not a large outlet mall, not a ton of shops there but the crate and barrel outlet store is worth shopping in!

We spent a couple of hours here one day after lunch and a morning museum visit nearby. It's a pleasant outlet setting in which to shop, very attractively structured with the two strips of shops laid out in a slight curve. (This made it convenient for me to escape an aggressive kiosk vendor!). There are high end clothing vendors, Carter's,... More

When I want to find a bargain on a brand name I come here. The stores are great and the atmosphere relaxing. The bathrooms are always clean and the selection of shops extensive. Parking can be tight so it's best to go early.

We enjoyed this outdoor outlet mall the most. Bought a lot of stuff. Had quite a few bargains. Coach, Tumi, Kate Spade, Rockport shoes, and more. We spent a week in San Diego, went to a few malls. But this one was the best.

The Quality of the goods is the key. We live in Carlsbad and shop here. Good Brands, very good customer service and if you are hungry, just go to ISLANDS REST, on Palomar Airport Road. Joe

The Carlsbad Premium Outlets is a really nice place to spend an afternoon. A great variety of name-brand higher end shops (like Ralph Lauren, Nike, Tumi...). The facilities are usually clean. Bring a full wallet--even though it's an outlet mall the prices are still high.
