Located about 40 minutes north of San Diego California in the beach town of Carlsbad California sits the Grand Pacific Palisades by Hilton Grand Vacations. There are two good sized pools, a fitness center, a restaurant, several hot tubs, and much more to enjoy. There was a special pool for kids to play in and also a play structure. Given it close proximity to Legoland this is a family friendly timeshare.

The staff was great and the kitchen had everything that was needed. The two hot tubs were on the larger size and one of them had a great view of the ocean. This was a very relaxing stay. See the video review of the room, pools, etc...

No, I think this is the resort just below Marbrisa, the one overlooking the tulip fields.
Ahh yet they are not tulips.


I used to work on that corner selling strawberries and flowers when I was in college. It was before the mall or the Armstrong garden center existed. Actually, it was even before Palisades was built

Is this Marbrisa?
This is the resort that is just south of Marbrisa. It is smaller, but the pool has a good view of the ocean. I wanted to try this one since I have stayed at Marbrisa several times

Grand Pacific Palisades is my home resort. It is a fantastic resort for families. Lots of activities, kid’s pool, playground, basketball, shuffleboard, ping pong, and game room. It is also walking distance to Legoland. They also have a free shuttle to anywhere within 5 miles. Bonus is Costco is literally just down the street so easy pizza night or shopping for dinners.

Don’t discount Seapointe. The ocean view across the street is hard to beat, and it is just a few miles to the other resorts. I had the opportunity to spend a few days there in 2020 and I see why it is very hard to get into. As a bonus they even gave me chocolate and a bottle of wine in the room.

I've stayed at Seapointe and agree the views are amazing. I've now stayed at all three in the Carlsbad area and like them all for different reasons. Can't complain really.
