I spent many summers (when I was young) in a cottage close by this resort and learned to sail on their rental boats. It is just as I remembered, with modern upgrades.

When the pocket book said no can do to a trip out of town, I put on the internet search for a good location to stay in our own back yard, and that is when I thought about Catamaran resort, I lived in Pacific Beach for 10 years and never had a reason to stay there when you live there.... More

Thanks to Melissa Armstrong for helping me with reservation and recommending a very comfortable suite with an awesome view. Walking distance to dozens of restaurants and pubs. Controlled parking and friendly customer service. Very enjoyable stay.

I've stayed a few times at The Catamaran and have always had an amazing time. It's so close to night life, and you have the beach on one side and the bay on the other. We took a sailboat out in the bay once on a beautiful day, which was awesome and convenient. Each time we've been, we've had the... More

We recently had our International Annual Sales and Training meeting over a week long stay at the Catamaran. It was just an exceptional experience! The staff was superb, attentive, organized, knowledgeable and just so very kind. The meeting room was an excellent venue for a week of meetings and learning. We had our lunches on the lawn with breath taking... More

The whole experience from start to finish was amazing. The restaurant and Mooray's lounge were great places to eat and hang out. The rental items were cool to go around the bay and paddleboard, take a bike to the beach or sail for a bit. Housekeeping kept our room very clean and fresh every day. I do not have one... More
