We enjoyed the beautiful rooms, heated pools, and the easy walk to Legoland. Chris and Joanna did a great job with the resort activities. Our kids hopped from one activity to the next with Chris and said it was the best part of the trip!

Rooms were nice. Partial beach view includes Legoland roller coaster as well as the speaker. 2nd day sink so badly plugged the pipes were leaking. Had to wait 2 days for it to be repaired. Thermostat broke in lock off, try sleeping with room temp of 75. Shower valve broke, so choices were cold of scalding hot, no in between....

The typical Hilton Vacation Club which a re always 5 star resorts. Resort is near countless activities. One nice feature is that there is a private access to Legoland so you don't have to load up the kids and wait in a car line to get in. Also, discounted tickets are available for most San Diego activities

We really enjoyed staying at the Hilton MarBrisa. The facilities were excellent (room, pool, etc). The staff could not be better. We stated in a 1 bedroom unit and it was very comfortable. There were plenty of cooking items in the kitchen. There is a nice restaurant across the street which we have been to many times prior to this...

This may be the perfect choice for families with children since it is located right next to Legoland. For all others, search elsewhere. Pros: - Room was spacious - Full kitchen (including oven which a lot of timeshare locations don't have) - Appeared to have a lot of activities for children - Location to Legoland - Grounds were nicely manicured...

Staff were friendly and helpful. Close to stores for groceries and shopping. Only glitch was shortage of dishes for 4 people and need to run...

This one of my favorite places to stay. The accommodations are great, as well as the 'Cove'. The service has always been top notch. It is close to the beach, downtown and shopping. It is close to San Diego, a short trip in the car or on the 'coaster' train.
