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. Located just steps from the beach the sound of waves gently washing ashore lulled us... More

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

I booked to stay here for one night on stopover from the BVIs to London. My flight was delayed and since reception closed at 11, I decided to call them at 7.30 to let them know so I would be able to check in. As a solo young female traveller, I really didn't want to get to a rather remote... More

This looks great from the outside, its on the beach and seemed to have everything we were looking for, but when we got inside our superior suite it was so dark and disappointing.

This is a fantastic small hotel with a private beach, amazing views and a wonderfully lovely staff and restaurant. I spent 5 nights here and enjoyed every minute, whether sitting on my comfortable patio overlooking the harbor, sailing one of their free-to-use sailfish sailboats, or sleeping with the door and windows open and listening to the water rush the beach....

This was my third time staying at Catamaran and I must say that this place is consistent. The rooms are clean and they staff are very attentive. I have enjoyed my stay each time and I must say that if you are looking for a nice, relaxing piece of heaven in the Caribbean, Catamaran is the place for you.
