We enjoyed our weekend at the MarBrisa Carlsbad Hilton Resort. Rooms were clean and spacious. Property was beautiful and lots of activities going on. The town of Carlsbad is close and nice to visit. Close to the beach and plenty of restaurants available.

I visited the MarBrisa resort in mid-October for my annual birthday trip. Checking in was effortless and I really appreciated that the resort provided me with a discount card for some of the local businesses. I used the card for my spa day and had the best time. The resort its

We went in September 2018 and had a wonderful time. The grounds are beautiful!! Our room was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool area. The only thing that was a bit troublesome is the staff using gas blowers in the mornings. It was noisy.

We booked here because we are HGV club members and thought a week in the Carlsbad area would be very pleasant. We were not disappointed.
Our condo was located away from the main building, across from the Westin area of the resort. The quiet location suited us perfectly. The condo

There restaurant / bar is a joke. The menu has about 10 items on it. the staff is rude. We

What is the best way to get to the beach and sights in San Diego? Is there access in walking distant to catch a trolley or train? Thank you. Thinking of April visit.
The beach is quite a close drive to the MarBrisa Carlsbad Resort, however, it is on the other side of the I-5, so not walkable. The resort is at least a 30 min drive to San Diego, more when there is traffic (which is almost always). I'm sorry I don't know anything about shuttles or train. Probably best to call the resort & ask for their assistance.

Is it true there are no elevators to upper floors?
Hello, from what I understand, it depends what phase of the property you stay in. Phase 1 does not have elevators, but phase 2 may have. I contacted HGVC regarding the room types and they said rooms in phase 2 may or may not have elevators. I would contact the resort directly to get a better understanding of the different buildings.

Hello, Is there construction ongoing at MarBrisa Resort? I am a timeshare owner and was going to book a stay, but there was something on the web page regarding construction until 2023. Is this correct and if so, did anyone think it was noisy? Thank you! Susan.
Stayed there a week in March. No problems. They were lovely to us. Beautiful resort.

Are the pools heated year round?
Yes, we did 2 of the Cove Pools - they were heated. Of course, they'll be warmer now as the weather helps any pool. I floated for an hour almost every day during our 2 weeks.

"We were on the bottom floor and we did not hear anyone above us."
"Many balconies face Legoland, which is magical for kids."
"We stayed in building #53 and it was excellent. Did not hear any road noises."
"If you are staying in a 3bedroom unit, you will be far from everything the resort offers."
"You can see Legoland from many of the rooms. Also, Legoland has a back entrance a short walk from the hotel."
