  • 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.
  • Great place to snag designer items. I always go for the Clarks outlet but usually walk around finding other things. If you go once a month get the savings pass it's helpful! The mall is located behind the tulips which is a gorgeous backdrop and you're minutes away from the beach. Nice place to shop in Carlsbad. If you go on a busy busy weekend parking is crazy otherwise I've never had a problem
  • These outlets have good deals and good shopping. For your higher end items they have great deals. The issue I have is the crowds are ridiculous!!! There was actual lines to get in stores and while the deals we're good people were acting like it was black Friday.... It's February.... I will go back when I want a deal.
  • Your typical outlet mall... Went there during Christmas time and enjoyed a little shopping. Brought my son to see Santa for the first time and get pictures. Overall, it's a nice clean mall with a good variety of stores.
  • Just went to stroll and get out with my dog. It was fun to walk around. I wish there were more centrally located food. I
