Catamaran

Would recommend Mon, Jan 13, 2014
The room was very quiet and comfortable - bedding was immaculate. Love having fridge in room. I attended long meetings and was glad for garden patio to sit outside my room to eat room service which was done well. Suggest: 1) clean rug in room - had stains 2) Hang TV on wall so I could see it from table and chairs and both beds. 3) Easier and more outlet access by bed so I can keep phone plugged in at night. 4) While the torch-light effect is nice on the grounds, I felt unsafe walking in such dark areas along the path. 5) Not everyone drinks coffee in the morning - put some teabags in the room by the coffee pot too.

Great Family Stay

Would recommend Mon, Jan 6, 2014
I booked a night to stay with my son and boyfriend. It is literally right across the street from the beach. Just steps away from restaurants. About 20min away from down town. Its in a perfect location. The hotel itself has birds and a garden that my son just loved. They let us feed the ducks and my son had a field day with that. The only thing that bothered me was they clip the wings of the birds so they won't fly away. I would rather the birds not be there at all or have a net around their habitat just so they can fly freely. We requested to stay in a non smoking room. It smelled a bit weird but it was very clean and the cable selection was great. I would definitely book at the Cantamaran Hotel again.

Definitely recommend staying here over other places!

Would recommend Fri, Nov 1, 2013
In my first trip to San Diego, I looked for hours at all the different neighborhoods and hotels trying to decide what was going to be the best spot. The Catamaran was great because it is located on the Bay, so you have that "water-front/beach-front" experience. There are very few hotels on this part of the bay, so it is not touristy at all. Then you literally cross one street the other direction and you are on Pacific Beach. Looking at the hotels directly on the beach, they were either really dumpy or really, really expensive. Thank goodness we didn't chance it with a dumpy one over there. Its not worth it to be that much closer, being across the street and on the Bay is worth it. Mission Bay is also a pretty central area. A little further from the airport and downtown areas than other parts of the city. But the Pacific Beach side of town was just amazing. So relaxed. Plenty of neat restaurants and bars, and good beach atmosphere. The best part of the trip was renting a bicycle and heading north along the shore about 5 miles to La Jolla coves. It is the most beautiful little city, and you can see and swim with sea lions. If I could live there, I would!

Beautiful resort with responsive staff

Would recommend Wed, Oct 30, 2013
On our 1st night in a ground unit in the rear we encountered loud banging pipes in the bathroom, like a jack hammer. The staff immediately responded to our call for help by moving us to a ungraded suite with a fantastic view of Mission Bay from the 7th floor. We then proceeded to thoroughly enjoy the remainder of our stay. Would definitely return to the Catamaran again.

Pretty darn good

Would recommend Thu, Oct 3, 2013
I was very pleased with the location and setting. I'd say the whole place was a 9.5. Only thing that might be due is new carpets as the room was starting to see some wear and getting a little dated.....room 410. But I will definitely stay there again!

Dining

Eat at World Famous and hit the taco stand next door. Yum!

Next best place to Hawaii

Would recommend Thu, Sep 12, 2013
I haven't one negative thing to say about this hotel. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. You felt like you were in paradise. They had tropical gardens, koi ponds, and tropical birds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My husband and I went there for a vacation retreat with my husbands company and decided to stay an extra night so we could go to the Charger Football game the next day. Also I want to mention you could walk to the boardwalk along the beach in Mission Bay San Diego. We definitely will stay there again.

Shopping hint

Old Town Mexico is a fun place to shop and have a good Mexican dinner

Lovely location ...

Would recommend Thu, Sep 12, 2013
This resort is surrounded by beautiful gardens that are well maintained. The rooms are comfortable but are at the stage that they need a little bit of updating. Would recommend this resort to friends for its location. with the bay so close and the ocean just 1 block away.

Shopping hint

Great shopping at La Jolla.

Vacation

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 19, 2013
The staff was great, very friendly and helpful, maid service exceptional. Hotel was very noisy, adults coming home in the middle of the night and sitting drunk and loud out on their patios for hours. Music playing by pool at 0700 didn't help either. We are tired! Pretty hotel and location has easy access to everything.

Great place to stay

Would recommend Tue, Jul 2, 2013
It is a great place to stay and be near the ocean and the bay. The rooms are great, staff are wonderful and there are so many things to do in the area. I will probably go back there again.

Nice traditional place

Would recommend Tue, Jun 18, 2013
Stayed here several times before and we always enjoy the pool and bay/beach access. Ducks, fish, and tropical birds keep the kids amused. The hotel has a tower and also two-story "garden" buildings, both offer different views. Nice staff; not much for food or a bar, but good access to lots of beach options.
