  • Took my teenage grandkids here shopping or our next day trip to little lamb but kids love it I don't know my pocket but enjoyed as much of the teenagers did it was a lot of stores they bought a lot of...  more »
  • We went on a Sunday. We were in San Diego and we had two options: Carlsbad or Las Americas. The distance from our hotel was almost the same, 34 miles Las Americas, which is close to the border with Mexico, and 39 miles the Carlsbad, in the city of the same name, toward Los Angeles. We chose Carlsbad because I figured the Las Americas would be too full, because it is Sunday and the proximity to Mexico. Has all the great stores that exist in other Premium Outlets. Lot size options and models, which is very popular outlets, raroem like Orlando and Las Vegas. Customer service in stores was very nice, attentive, polite and Nice, something rare these outlets also fuller. The prices were good, the average of the other. And we Crown the end of Hagen Dazs ice cream purchases!

  • We went there for two consecutive years in the sales period: whenever big shopping: brand prices + sales = real business! Take the time to look! Avoid the weekend because a lot of people... The best moments: morning in weeks: not of worlds and the stores are in order!

  • We visited on the evening of Thanksgiving on our way back from visiting friends for Thanksgiving dinner. We thought of just driving past but couldn't resist stopping after learning about several sales. So we pulled in and the place was packed! We had to wait for people to leave and follows them to get parking. The sales were phenomenal! Many stores had 50% off and we took advantage of the sales. Clark's are one of our favorite shoe stores and we ended up buying 5 pairs of shoes - all 50% off! Major score there! We also were able to take care of some Christmas shopping. Great deals, convenient location that easily accessible from the freeway, and a clean and safe shopping center. Plus awesome sales frequently throughout the year. This place is one of our favorite shopping centers.
  • I love shopping here! My favorite shops are Le Creuset, COACH and Calvin Klein. It is an Open Air Outlet Mall (not to be confused with a Strip Mall) located just off of the I-5 San Diego Freeway. It has sidewalks and plazas as well as sit down dining. They provide ample parking; however, the stalls are very narrow, during the holidays you will find it challenging to find a place to park, Valet Parking is available, and there is more than what ADA requires the facility to provide as it relates to Disabled/Handicap parking (which is a HUGE +). The restrooms are always clean (there are 3 locations) they have several stalls to choose from, including Handicap/Disabled stalls, and there are changing tables for babies. There are Electric Vehicle charging stations on the East side of the mall. They have a Nursing Mother's Lounge. Security. Stroller rental. ATM Machines. Complimentary Wheelchairs. And the evenings and early mornings are less crowded
  • Bestest one stop shopping. Prices vary depending on what you are looking for but for the most part reasonable. Clean restrooms, Great atmosphere. Out of all the outdoor malls I've been too, Carlsbad Premium Outlets is by far the prettiest. People ate not rude.
  • A decent size outlet mall that has all the brand my family needs. We went there 12/30/17 at 6pm. Wasn't too crowded making shopping a breeze. Most stores have good enough space to maneuver strollers and few are quite a challenge.
  • It's a nice outdoor mall. Fun to walk around decent choice if stores. I don't feel like it's a true outlet experience considering the prices and amount of stores.
