My family and I had a wonderful time and the location is so close to the beach and a variety of different restaurants. We have 3 teenage girls and they loved walking the resort and enjoyed the activities they offered. We WILL be returning very very soon.

This was our family 's first time staying at Marbrisa. It is beautiful and there is even an entrance to Legoland from the resort. We enjoyed hanging out at the pool but the best part of our trip was doing the activities at the kids center. Joela was the lady who was in charge of the children's activities. My daughter...

Garbage disposal was nasty and stinky. No elevators or laundry facilities on our floor. No room service pick up, and no help with bags. End of property, very little view, even though we selected 1bdplus

This is a beautiful place to stay and centrally located. We enjoyed a private entrance to LEGOLAND. The amenities are wonderful and it was nice that the pool was heated. We were just minutes from the beach and had views of the ocean.

Overall I like the Marbrisa. It's well situated, plenty of parking, no resort or parking fee. The pools are great and the gym is really good. The back entrance to Legoland saves you like $15 in parking and just makes things super easy. The rooms are nice also. My only complaint is lack of housekeeping which I think is because...

We really enjoyed our stay. A great spot for excursions in Southern California. We liked our spacious 2BR. The housekeeping schedule could be a bit more frequent. However our housekeeper Elia did a great job.

No restaurant or bar on site that was open. Pool area not tidy- wet dirty towels around. Basic short term apartment rental. There was No resort feel to it. Sheraton across the road was beautiful, felt more welcoming & inviting. Lovely bars and restaurants. Likely would stay there next time.
