I loved this hotel. I booked it for my partner's 50th birthday treat and when we arrived they had put candles, a cake, a bottle of fizz and written '50' in bougainvillea petals on the bed. You just can't place a price on that level of service. The staff were lovely, helpful but not pushy, the facilities exactly right for... More

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...
