Water took 15 minutes to get hot but overall it was a good stay.

I love everything about the Catamarran Resort. I’ve stayed there over a 40 year period. It just gets better and better. The staff is wonderful from valet, landscape workers and front desk. I love the beautiful setting, comfy beds, great food and access to the bay.

Location is amazing, ready access to mission Bay, the beach and lots of restraunts

Floors and walls felt very unclean. Musty smell in the room from the heater/air con. and not a very pleasing ambience.

The location was fantastic. The outdoor facilities were beautiful. All was well kept up very friendly staff. Yes, it is true that furniture and appliances needed some updating, but I would still recommend staying here whole heartedly. Only snafu is that when they take your credit card for incidentals etc when you check in - do not give a debit card. My bank took it as a transaction “in process” and all hell broke loose with charges thereafter. Wish I simply would have been told to give a credit card.

Not very nice at all. Old looking rooms, not super clean, stained sheets and towels. Room faced the parking garage. Noisey hotel staff pushing carts all day and night.

We were in the 700 rooms, nice and away from the parking lot. Ducks were a nice touch.

The property is nice and relaxing. Centrally located and being right on the bay is as good as you can get.

I loved this property. It was kept clean, was modern and made us really feel like we were on vacation.

It had everything I was looking for - beach on the water, a spa, a beautiful pool and hot tub, lush surroundings to walk through, a clean room with ocean views and a friendly staff. A few things to improve - the elevators are tired and in need of some renovation, the room while clean and functional was getting a little tired looking and the front desk staff while friendly could use a little more training or they should hire a concierge who can assist with questions and recommendations. Overall I had a great time and for the price point had everything I needed in a comfortable setting

everything that was promised was there. Easy access to clean bay right across, good restaurant, rooms were clean, staff friendly. Best part was every afternoon at reception there is cold water to drink and basket of fruits that the kids treated themselves too between water activities.

Beautiful property right on the bay. Staff was very friendly.

Walking distance to the beach. Beatiful view of the bay.

Well maintained hotel with beautiful grounds, just steps from the beach.
