We have just returned from a two night stay and did not want to leave! I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. We stayed in the tower on 6th floor (ask for as high a room as you can so as to get a good view of the bay) and were blown away by the location, resort and its staff... More

We recently gave a wedding rehearsal dinner jn the beautiful "Board Room" at the Catamaran. The wall of floor length windows looked out upon the water and the Luau taking place below. Couldn't have asked for a more lovely view. After of months of planning with Amber, the event evolved like clock work! I had brought my own table decorations... More

My husband, daughter and I spent an amazing evening at the Catamaran on July 22nd 2014. The bay front Luau they host each week during the summer is a must see, for visitors as well as local San Diegans. Being greeted with a flower lei and a refreshing Mai Tai was a fabulous touch and the start of a perfect... More

A friend and I were invited to the Catamaran Luau last night. Fun way to spend time with family and friends. Beautiful evening on Mission Bay. The food was delicious, especially the chicken macadamia nut salad. And the Polynesian dancers and musicians were fantastic. And of course there was the warm welcome from the Catamaran team--Melissa, Charlotte, Courtney, Dayna, Desiree... More

We walked into our garden view room and right away we were overcome by the smell of mold. My wife is allergic to mold so we... More
