My girlfriends and I chose this hotel for a fun girl's overnight without having to drive anywhere. We couldn't have made a better choice. The restaurant is fantastic, the grounds are beautiful and the staff were very well trained and courteous. Our room overlooked the bay and we spent a lovely Sunday in February sitting in their pretty beach chairs... More

Absolutely amazing resort that has the feeling of a luxury island getaway. The theme of the hotel continues seemingly through the whole resort, the tropical style with the little 'rivers' and pools that ran throughout the grounds were delightful. The parrots and birds are a must see especially when the handler puts on a show for you, the birds are... More

Chose this hotel because of it's location. It's a Polynesian theme that has a retro feeling to it - in a good way. Our room was in the tower and was updated. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wished we had more time to explore the grounds but unfortunately we were there for some of the few rainy days that they... More

My company held a five day seminar here. Every morning we shared stories about our loud and uncomfortable rooms, and every evening we despaired over the bland and overpriced catering. It was a terrible experience at the Catamaran. The problems started every morning, sometimes as early as 5 am. Some first thought it was a lawnmower, others a pneumatic drill.... More

Had a well equipped room and great view of the bay. Situated in a great spot minutes away from the beach and other eating places. Easy to get to if unfamiliar with the city roads. Gym is well equipped, Morays bar nice and relaxing, parking handy. Would go back.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days before going downtown, and the hotel is situated perfectly. The staff are warm and welcoming, the rooms are spacious and beds are sooo comfortable. I loved every moment of my time here. I would definately visit the hotel and San Diego again.

This place is fantastic! The room is great, as well as the Polynesian theme! The staff were all very friendly, one person in particular really stands out to me! Camden at the bar. Not only is he friendly, and engaging, he is a genuine person that made my vacation that much better! He treated me like a friend, not just... More
