A step from the room balcony on to the beach, and a great view of the sweep of Falmouth Bay, provide a great location for this small, family run hotel, which must have been THE place to stay when it opened. It is just looking a little tired and in need of refurbishment, but is nevertheless spotlessly clean. The staff... More

We've been going to the Caribbean for years always hoping to find the best place we were willing to go back to. We found it in the Catamaran. It's not a fancy high rise kind of place.....no big expensive restaurants or night life. But, if you want a clean up kept beach, almost at your door, a clean pool, a... More

The Catamaran Hotel is a place with decent standard accommodations. Set expectations - there are no frills and thrills to be had here. It's biggest asset is the small nearly private beachfront which is just steps from the door to the rooms. You can tell the staff really puts forth an effort which is great. But in the end it's...

The Catamaran hotel is well located on Falmouth Harbor in the southern part of Antigua.With rising hills to the west, yachts to the east and the southern Atlantic forward this is a beautiful island retreat Our room was old but clean, comfortable and well maintained.

Stayed at the Catamaran in February 2014 for two weeks and should have written this earlier. Don't go here if you want 5* Luxury - do go here if you want to be looked after really well and experience the real Antigua. Nothing was too much trouble for Fiona Bailey and her staff - Can I hire a car? No... More
