We were at the MarBrisa for a week, taking care of some family business. After a long trip of flight delays and lost luggage, we were greeted by Wesley, who was terrific and went about making us feel welcome. The room was really nice and we went straight to bed, only to be awakened early the next morning by the noise of construction going on across a very narrow parking area from our building. This was to continue for our entire stay, with the exception of Sunday morning. We had to park quite a distance from our building because the construction crew's vehicles took over our area. One morning, the parking lot was filled with dozens of kitchen appliances being unpacked for the new unit. One couple had their car blocked in.
We discovered that there was no restaurant on site and nothing within walking distance except the Sheraton resort across the road on the far side of MarBrisa from our room. There was nothing to do on site except swim and it was too cold for that. Without any small children interested in Legoland, if we had not had a rental car, we'd have been stuck.
My son woke up the first morning with a bite on his face, which we chalked up to mosquitoes (although we never saw any). However, as the week went by, we both noticed more and more bites appearing on us overnight. I can't tell you what sort of bugs were in that room, but there was definitely something. We had to ask for our room to be cleaned. I asked for clean sheets but they only remade the beds.
