We booked a family trip 5 months early to the Palisades Hotel in Carlsbad. We booked it with my parents and my siblings families because my mom had been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. The day after booking the Palisades Hotel, we received a call from the Marbrisa Hilton Hotel offering us the same stay for 1/2 the price...

Lovely property. Quiet and comfy retreat during winter. Good service. Just bummed about putrid odor from kitchen sink that should be remedied or guests not put inthat room. Went through "60 minute" presentation that actually lasted over 2 hours. Not fun.

We are HGVC owners and this was our first trip to the west coast. We choose this resort because of its location and access to legoland. We had a minor issue upon checkin but were happy with with how things were handled. The activities for the kids (and adults) were a lot of fun and we loved the lady who...

This is a beautiful resort, well maintained and very clean. Lots of great amenities, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. When I told them there was an issue with one of the sink drains in the bathroom they had someone there that afternoon unclogging it. The one gentleman who spoke to us was very nice and said...

Reserved room for a mother daughter getaway. We had a great time. Glad pool was heated. The staff was most helpful. Had to wait a bit for our room but it was ready a little after 4. They were gracious.

When we booked this resort we anticipated a great stay in an area we really love. On top of that, this is a Hilton Grand Vacation Club property which we have always enjoyed. And although this was very nice in many ways, there were several disappointments. The grounds are beautiful. The floorplan in our 2 bedroom suite was somewhat awkward....

Nice room. Excellent service by Ellia - our room was spotless and we were well taken care of. She kept us in fresh towels and linens. A great vacation spot. Close to all that San Diego has to offer. A beautiful resort.

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....
