My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend for his business holiday party and we went to breakfast at the restaurant the next morning. I was craving eggs Benedict but it was not on the menu. I asked our waitress if they had Hollandsise sauce and she said she would ask the chef. She came back and said they... More

The Catamaran is our favorite place to stay in San Diego, the pool and spa, the restaurant and bar, the bay, the beach, paddle boarding, surfing and bike riding...it's all right there! Aida Jaime helped us and all the staff was wonderful!

The grounds are beautiful. waterfall meets you when you enter the lobby. there is an outside lounge at night with firepits and the bar is nice. They have an "excellent" spa on site...they did not forget anything with that. For me it's only nice because of the room. It was average. There really was nothing that made me say "wow".... More

The grounds are beautiful and the location, next to Mission Beach, is convenient for direct beach access as well as many... More

We stayed here as part of a large soccer tournament in November 2013. The resort was really neat great landscaping and a good location. The rooms were a very good size but in desperate need of updating. The pool area was just OK and the "beach" wasn't the prettiest in San Diego but the sailboats in the bay were pretty... More

We had high expectations for our stay at the Catamaran which were clearly exceeded. Our room had a balcony with a great view of Mission Bay and the ocean. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The staff was friendly and professional. Standouts were Nicole and Kristen I at the front desk. They were both professional, knowledgeable,...
