Being locals, my husband and I had had a great evening with the Luau show. We started off in the hotel bar for cocktails. The specialty drink was the Mai Tai and hands down it was the best in town. The food was delicious and the entertainment was exciting. We will definately return.

Here for a small convention, and the venue is great. Lunches on the Mission Bay beach, walk on the Pacific Ocean beach in the evening, convention room overlook the bay, great lagoon in the center of everything that you walk through each day -- this is a fine place. My room (12th floor tower) is great. Some colleagues in the... More

This hotel is ideally located at the junction of Mission and Pacific Beach, it is alos very close to the open sea (Pacific Beach), just one block away, but has also its private access to the bay, where numerous activities are proposed. The breakfast was very goog and the staff were friendly.

For our 15th anniversary I booked 4 nights in a deluxe garden room w/ king bed. We got a 4th floor tower room comfy bed but room was worn and A/C struggled to keep up with warm nights (mid 60's)! (At check in we were told we would be looking at parking garage so after complaining begrudgingly got the garden... More

Paying a high price does not bring class! Our alumni class of 1962, Mission Bay High School, celebrated its Happy 70th Birthday at the Catamaran Resort Hotel. The event was in September. I made reservations in March for a suite on the bay. Expensive, but a monetary gift from my deceased parents afforded me the opportunity to reserve the suite... More

The lady and I stayed there last night for the first time. I was not impressed. The first room they put us in reeked of mildew and we could hear the squawking of the nearby caged parrots. I went back to the front desk to inform them about this and they apologized and placed us in another room. While the... More

I surprised my husband with an anniversary trip and chose the Catamaran. We were upgraded from a garden suite to a bay front. Wonderful view, spacious room, and comfortable beds. The only downside was the cost of parking, but you have to pay almost everywhere in San Diego. We loved the resort surroundings, ducks, fish, easy access to the bay... More

In our room they had a tray with chocolate covered strawberries & champagne! Our view was amazing. All the staff was polite & helpful. The grounds here are wonderful. They have ponds with... More

The location of this resort could not be better. A short walk across the street and there is Mission Beach, just beautiful. If one prefers a quiet place to relax then Mission Bay is a short walk away. The tropical atmosphere reminded us of Hawaiian Resorts, except that the price tag is far better. We stayed in a second floor... More
