Spacious resort with great facilities. Peaceful and yet near all the attractions and restaurants. 3 mins away from Legoland and Premium Outlet stores. Near premium outlet, Legoland and lots of nice restaurants. The pool area is very big with spa to relax. Great place to stay for business or leisure.

MarBrisa has wonderfully appointed rooms, grounds, pools, gym and staff. Jolia,the Fun Director, has the enthusiasm and personality to work with the youth and all ages of adults. Property is ideally located to great restaurants, theme parks and airports.

Very nice experience. Had problems with reservations/check-in regarding promises not kept, but hotel staff did their best to offer other solutions. Unit we stayed in was nice, but not suitable for elderly (like our parents who stayed with us) who have trouble climbing stairs. Nice decor, beautiful view of ocean. Nice amenities.

We had a great experience here and would highly recommend this to anyone. Very comfortable beds. We loved having a kitchen to use for breakfast. The grounds were beautifully kept. It was pretty quiet also while we were there even with the construction.
