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.

We stayed here for a short break en route from Montserrat back to the UK. As it was out of season we were able to negotiate a very reasonable rate for accommodation (although the quoted rate did not include service/taxes which add another 22% to the total - watch out for this small print if you come from a country...

My daughter, 2 1/2 yr. old grandson, and I stayed at the Catamaran for a week in March. From my first telephone call to Fiona, the owner of the Catamaran, months before our arrival to the day we left I felt extremely well cared for. She and her staff met our every need.

Sitting on the balcony watching the morning come in over the harbor, I felt very lucky to be here. The view and location are two of the best things about the Catamaran.
