Perfectly situated on a small beach. Easy access to 2 restaurants, we preferred the one on site, Captain's Table. Campus a Restaurant is a gentle stroll though more expensive. A supermarket, cake and ice cream shop and a bus stop are close, though Willy the taxi driver much more fun. The decor is not 5 star but all perfectly clean... More

We've stayed at the Catamaran four times over the last twelve years and enjoyed every visit. In fact it's our favourite place to stay in the Caribbean! It offers an excellent combination of peace and quiet, together with being right on the beach while the restaurants of English Harbour are only a 5 minute drive away. We will also like... More

With its nonchalant style and welcoming staff, this hotel is the solution to sterile gated communities that plague Caribbean Islands. From the moment you arrive you feel a part of the daily activities of the marina and pier and the rest of the enchanting village of Falmouth Harbour.

Small family run hotel in an old 'colonial' style building right on the beach. It's on the south of the island, well away from all the glitzy 5 star resorts and cruise ships. (There can be over 10,000 day trippers if there are 4 ships in dock). Best described as 'shabby chic' - rooms are a bit dated, but everything... More

The location is great, the rooms have a rustic charm, very clean, tidy and the view is beautiful. I have been here twice now and I really like the place. There is also a great Italian restaurant near by and a restaurant called Papas which is also my new favourite place to eat.

We felt immediately at home at the Catamaran, and part of the English harbour community for the 2 weeks we were there. The accommodation is simple, spotless and comfortable. The beach, though small (30 metres wide by 10 deep I would say) is kept clean and is a joy to loaf on. The little pool is perfect. The Bailey family... More
