Location is awesome- you are right across from Belmont Park which has a cute little carnival style park, the beach and boardwalk and plenty of restaurants. On the property you have the bay and a nice little sand area that the kids can play on as if they are at the beach. Keep in mind that the bay gets deep very fast and this is not an area for kids to go in the water however you can rent water bikes, kayaks, water skiing and sailing along with paddleboards- plenty to play in the bay. The sand area is perfect for the kids to play and build castles. They have a restaurant and bar area right off the sand and in the evenings you can see the firework show from Sea World. Also the Luau is super fun and something very unique for this hotel and a great outing for the family!! They also offer a booze cruise after 10P that adults only can take around the harbor and early day until 9P the boat will take the family around the harbor- another fun added perk to the hotel.
The room themselves are a bit small and dated however I think everything else helps make this reasonable. The shower water pressure was very good (a HUGE plus for people with long hair!). All the staff was helpful and friendly.
Although I prefer suite rooms for the added space and ability to sit on a couch to watch TV at the end of the day- this hotel was very nice and I would come back and recommend it to all- romantic and families alike. It really is perfect location for tourism as well with Sea World minutes away, the Zoo about 20 minutes away and downtown convention center also about 15 - 20 minutes away.

Room Tip: If you have little kids I recommend the bay front suites as your patio opens to a nice large green belt area and the sand and bay is just in front of that!

A garden view studio on the 11th floor with walkout patio/chairs provided a beautiful view of the sunset over Pacific Beach every evening! This room allowed my wife I and two teenagers to be in the same room with surprising space. It allowed us to eat hot breakfast every morning with the in-room kitchen. Range, micro, toaster, frig/frzr, and cooking utensils. At 2k for a peak summer 7-nights, this was a great find in the most unbeatable of locations.

Excellent pool area, Clean and helpful, and 1 block from Mission Beach/Pacific Beach. The bayside beach looked incredible and the activities the hotel put on there are endless, but we liked the Oceanside and casually spent all of our beach time there.

Our room was on the lower end $$$ wise. I would assume the upgraded rooms are spectacular. High marks all around.

The restaurant was good for breakfast as well as dinner. Really cosy sitting outside after dinner with the torches lit and enjoying cocktails. Servers were alert and pleasant. Nice pool area.There is a waterfall in the reception. It makes so much noise that it was difficult to talk with the receptionists. We had two rooms, one on the first floor and one on the ground floor in the building behind the reception. The room on the ground floor had a damp smell.

The Catamaran has always been the closest thing to Hawaii and Polynesia to be found on the mainland, but their Sunset Luau was even better than any we've attended in the islands. From the Roast Pig carried to the serving area to the wonderful food to the marvelous show, this tops anything we've run across. The show was outstanding with 10 wonderful musicians and about 15 performers. The show featured dances from the many islands in Polynesia. Only the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu had more of a cast and crew.

Everyone in the cast or associated with the hotel was happy and smiling. As I looked around the guests were also happy. Rebecca Baumwirt made us feel very welcome and happy and made sure we were having a good time.

I've not stayed at the Catamaran before but have been to several conventions there (including a couple I helped arrange). The same friendly attitude is always present and Rebecca B. is masterful in arranging meetings and tending to the details. I've recommended the Catamaran to both friends and business associates. The entire hotel makes you feel you've left your cares behind to travel to an island paradise (but with excellent Audio/Visual and convention services).
