Very spacious and clean. Huge tub with separate shower available. Great getaway with private entrance to LEGOLAND. Beaches and Outlet shopping minutes away and San Diego is only 30 minutes. Recommend the 20/20 restaurant at sunset for a spectacular setting.

We stayed for a week in a 3-bedroom and we're very comfortable. The location is comparable to other Hilton Grand vacation resorts. I love the activities for the kids, wish there had been more hula hoops for the hula hoop contest (one daughter couldn't participate). Bingo around the pool was fun, just wish it was pumped up more (animated caller,...

I think i covered all of this in previous pages. Staff was very unknowledgable and some were rude. Housekeeping was scarce. Pools were very cold. Food was overpriced. Amenities in room, such as coffee, were scarce

Drove 8 hours to find out Hotwire never sent our reservations over. After spending and hour at the front desk, we arrived to a 1 bedroom room, while reservations were made for 6. Front desk promised to bring us some sheets and blankets to sleep the kids on the hardwood floors- they cannot open a vacant (connecting) unit next door...

Another good stay at Marbrisa! We had a nice 2- bedroom/ 2- bathroom unit with a balcony overlooking the pool. Unit was nicely furnished but could have used a bit of a deeper clean before our arrival....hair on bathroom floor and some leftover underwear in one of the dresser drawers! Other than that, no complaints at all about the rooms-...

Pros: -The rooms were spacious and had plenty of room for us and our two kids -The pool area was great and I could see how it would be really lovely on a hot day -The service was great, and we could...

This resort is very pretty and well kept. The beds were wonderful. The bar was a bit pricey but great staff and fun to sit pool side. The cleaning staff never showed up so you may need to remind them when you want service. But we had most everything we needed. Close to many activities and restaurants. Great being close...

We love staying at the Marbrisa Resort when visiting San Diego. The staff is pleasant, professional and customer focused. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The pools are very welcoming. We enjoy a spacious and comfortable room on a par with other Hilton resorts. As HGVC owners, this resort is one of our go-to places on the mainland. Though...

We're HGVC Members and this was one of the nicest properties we've visited. Staff was wonderful, rooms very well appointed, pools were spotless, and the beds comfy. There is a hotel that shares the property where you can order room service or enjoy spa treatments. Great for families visiting SoCal.
