I travel very often for work and am always staying in different types of hotels. I initially came to the Catamaran for business and instantly fell in love with the relaxed, beautiful location and the professionalism of the staff. Because of my love for this hotel, my husband and I just got married here on September 6th 2014! It was... More

We stayed one night in a bayfront suite and had a very nice time. We enjoyed the tropical feel of the grounds and my 5 year granddaughter loved the koi ponds and birds everywhere, especially the parrots. From our room we had a front row seat to a few beautiful weddings and at night we enjoyed cocktails outside at the... More

The highlight of the hotel is being 1 mn walk from Pacific Beach and having the beach on Mission Bay where it is quieter. You have the 2 options and you can easily walk everywhere. The room itself was spacious, pretty clean (although the cleaning ladies came in so late that on 2 occasions we were already in the room... More

Had a 3 night stay and found the whole stay to be very enjoyable. Our room was a garden view and was of a good size with a high standard of cleanliness. The gardens and pool area very very nice and well maintained. The restaurant for both breakfast and evening dining were very good and offered good quality food with... More

The staff at this hotel were very friendly and had a very beautiful lobby. We stayed in the tower and the room was very nice. While nothing stands out for the hotel rooms, the grounds were amazing and very family friendly.

We live in town and always have friends that come to visit stay at the Catamaran. The other night we went to join our friends for dinner at the Atoll Restaurant. Wow, a pleasant surprise! We were able to eat outside and it was so pleasant with fantastic food, that we will definitely be going back. Our server's name was... More

The Catamaran has become one of my favorite hotels to stay in in San Diego. It's one of the few beachfront resorts in the San Diego area. The location is excellent - right on the beach on Mission Bay and a 3 minute walk to Pacific Beach on the open ocean. Having young kids, we actually preferred the beach on... More

We all had a great time. Everything was beautiful, neat and clean and the staff was very friendly. We rented a pedal boat for four (not as easy as you would think), a paddle board (lots of fun) and a catamaran for an hour each. I was surprised that the rental fees were as reasonable as they were. I will... More

Our relative in San Diego, Mission Bay area, lives in too-small rental to accommodate visitors so we use the Catamaran Resort as a spare room when visiting. Lots of things to see and do on Mission Bay and at the Catamaran Resort including riding on their paddlewheeler across the bay, but Catamaran Resort is also just across the street from... More
