This hotel is located about 30 minutes outside downtown Antigua, but is a treasure. If you looking for a luxury hotel with luxury accommodations this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for privacy, friendly and dutiful hotel staff and great food at a budget price, this is the place for you. It is a small...

We have just returned from a lovely week at the Catamaran. This was our first visit to the Caribbean but we didn’t want to stay in a sterile all-inclusive hotel and chose the Catamaran based on its size, TA reviews, price (really good value) and location near to English Harbour. We were also on a limited budget (which is difficult...

I stayed a night at the Catamaran Hotel in February 2016. My stay was towards the end of the Antigua Race Week for 2016. The hotel appeared to be full. This property is located directly on a lovely white sandy beach. My room was a mere 25 steps to the beach. The water on the day that I was there...

My husband and I stayed at Catamaran for our anniversary in mid April. We stayed in a "Captain's Cabin" and it was perfect for us, as it was spacious and comfortable with beautiful waterfront views, large fridge and stove. While others on TA have said the small beach is not good for swimming, we swam out to the green buoy...
