“Rhiannon above and beyond”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Wonderful resort right on the bay! Really liked the extraordinary customer service and hospitality from Rhiannon at the front desk as it set the tone for the rest of our stay . The room was right on the bay walk. Sure loved looking across the bay at night watching the Bella lights as it crossed the bay to the Bahia.

Room Tip: Room 609 had a fantastic view!

We stayed at the Catamaran for my wifes Bday and the service was fast the attendants were all very nice. The place was like a paradise with exotic birds and fish pond. I pesonally like how they took the time to greet us with a card, fruit and cheese basket and an upgraded bay view. Thank you Catamaran.

Room Tip: Bay view was awsome

This is a great property in a perfect location. Friendly, helpful staff. I would stay here anytime I was in the San Diego area. Pool and Atol restraunt are a must. Beach and bay access. Near Sea World and Pacific Beach.

It was my first stay in San Diego and we booked this hotel through bookit.com and were a little nervous that it wouldn't be as nice as it looked online. Much to our surprise we arrived and were told we were upgraded to a room looking onto the bay. The room was pretty clean, very spacious, and the grouds around the resport are breath taking. The have staff 24/7 keeping up with the resort and cleaning. We also found everyone to be very polite and helpful that worked there. I would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: The ones facing the bay have wonderful balconies overlooking the water.

Our stay at the Catamaran Resort Hotel was one of the most comfortable and memorable experiences we have had in a very long time! The property is located only a couple of steps from the bay, yet many of the rooms include large balconies that offer both privacy AND a beautiful view. We arrived late in the evening and were greeting by a welcoming late night front desk team... including a very helpful and courteous team member named David J. Although it was very late in the evening, David provided us with useful information about the local shops, made sure that the spacious room fit our needs, and even supplied a few amenities that we forgot to pack. I highly recommend this gorgeous, full-service resort to anyone who is interested in relaxing in San Diego... just remember that David and his overnight staff are always there when you need them. ;)

Best hotel I've stayed at so far in SD. Called after I made the reservation through an online site to make sure it went through, and asked to be upgraded to a room with one king sized bed. When we arrived we were also let known we got upgraded due to our request, and much to our surprise we walked in to a spacey room with a view of the bay from our balcony. Clean room, friendly staff, great pool area, and great location! Well worth every dime spent!

Room Tip: Call and ask to be placed in a room facing the bay, you won't regret it!

This resort is beautiful and the staff is great !! It is very clean and rooms are spacious ! The only cons are the water pressure and rooms needing updating. But overall, great experience and wonderful location.
