Our stay was started off a little shaky at check in but Andrew Amezcua took care of everything. He was polite, friendly and professional. He gave us confidence that our stay would be great and it was! We loved the large pool area and the many hot tubs. The food from The Cove Bar and Grill was tasty and easy. You did not have to leave the pool area to get something to eat. The women working at The Cove was super knowledgeable and helpful. All of our food came out hot and fresh! Pricing was right on for both food and drink! We had a very relaxing and carefree stay!

we had a wonderful stay loved the privet entrance to lego lad. walked to 20/20 for great meals. the staff was very friendly. definitely would be going back.

Perfect getaway for family’s with and without kids. There were a lot of activities at the resort and in the surrounding area. Our family had a blast.

Very nice property.We stayed in unit 80 for nights. The room was nice and we enjoyed our stay. However washer machine spilled water from the bottom while i was doing laundry.There was water all over the floor. Had to turn off the washer machine. Called front desk so they can come and mop the floor.The water went under the laminate floor so after they moped there was little puddles of water here and there.We put towels on the floor (didn’t want my kids to slip and fall) ended up taking my wet clothes to the washer machine next to the ice machine. Maintenance guy came and asked if we wanted to take the washer away or try to fix it on the spot. I just told him to fix it after we checked out, didn’t want to deal with it on vacation. Also showed him the water that was under the laminate and said they would fix it after check out. We kept seeing ants here and there and we couldn’t figure out were they were coming from. Saw them in the kitchen counter, living room. After we got back from sea world my kids went to go lay down and there was ants on the bed. So i looked around the room and there was a trail of ants behind the bed on the baseboards that went around the whole room. So we called front desk and maintenance came with bug spray and sprayed the base boards/carpet in the entire room .. and outside in the balcony as well. it was 10pm and it sucked because i had to wait an hour to put my 3 and 5 year old to bed so that the bug spray smell can go away. We will stay again

Beautiful property. Rooms were large, clean, and had everything we needed. Exceeded my expectations. Would highly recommend!

Great pool! Clean! Enjoyed our stay, not a fan of paying for parking.

Grounds alone were straight up on point! Music playing throughout the common areas was vibey and although they have an earlier checkout than most, they’re uber lenient on granting an extended checkout time. I ended up staying another night just based on how my personal experience with staff went. I’ll definitely be coming back before and after I have children 😁

Very nice resort, clean, especially during COVID.

Beautiful and Spacious property that is family friendly. Having a frig AND microwave is a plus when you travel with children. The best thing is the back access to LegoLand. Much more relaxing place to stay compared to the Legoland hotels. The only d

The management neglected to tell us that they only do a deep clean once every 4 days. We were paying for our room in dollars and at those prices, we should Have a clean and sanitary room every day. It was troubling, that they did not clean the sinks or the toilet. It was not for the environment, it was cost savings for the hotel and a detriment to your guests.

Everybody was friendly everything was clean and i like they was texting me if i need any help with anything i would be back for sure

Room was comfortable and conveniently located next to Legoland.

When checking in I was asked for my phone number, reluctant to give it out I was assured by the person that I would not be contacted except in case of emergency but I was subsequently contacted twice on my cell phone... once asking me to keep my dog from barking (I don't have a dog) then again for some sort of sales thing... I also had a voicemail left to my room which turned out to be another sales call... the whole thing is very sales–oriented... it was like one long ad for Marbrisa Resort... The hotel also tried to charge me some sort of resort fee which I simply refused to pay – this was not mentioned when I booked the room initially. I will try to avoid this place if I go back to the area.

Enjoyed the stay, great weather and environment. Very accommodating staff. Grounds are attractive and very kept. Recommend the Cove section.

Loved the hotel and loved that Legoland is literally walking distance from it.

My overall experience was great view was beautiful room was nice and clean great stay with my family

The first night there was a constant humming coming from the bathroom, it kept us up all night. The staff couldn't find a key to open the closet where the humming was coming from so we switched rooms. However in that room the heater fan was obnoxiously loud, every time it kicked on it woke us up! It was a disaster! Not going back!!!
