We stayed in a 3 bed plus apartment at the Marbrisa resort. We are HGV owners and this is our second stay at an HGV venue. This resort has not met our expectations of an HGV location. In Summary, we did not expect to arrive at an apartment where complaints would be necessary to resolve multiple issues. We stayed at...

I was very displeased with my hotel stay. When we checked into the Marbrisa Resort villa, the TV did not come on at all, the balcony door was broken and there were gnats flying all throughout the kitchen. After I called the front desk, the manager switched us to a different villa but there was no elevator in this section...

Beautiful resort like property! Great for families with Legoland on the agenda. Noise in the evening was a small issue. The poolside bar is hardly open, but you can bring your own drinks except glass.

Very nice resort, especially for families. Close walk to the Sheraton next door for the restaurant or snack shop. Nice golf course across the way and Legoland next door for the kids. Full kitchens and grills outside allow for cooking in if you wish.

Great place for a family vacation. Not too far from San Diego which is where we spent most of our time. Had a sufficient amount of pools. Very close to Lego Land if you have small children. Also close to beaches and downtown Carlsbad is a nice area.
