Catamaran Resort and Spa

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful room. Amazing beach. Delicious restaurants. Friendly staff. Well maintained grounds. Great experience.

We discovered this resort after our regular resort for the past 20 years was booked. I am glad we got to try this place out and we have stayed here 3 times in the past 20 months. Great customer service from check in to the great Sunday brunch. We are looking forward to our next stay.

Everything was amazing and it was a extremely family friendly hotel. Only complaint was that the rooms could have been better and could use an upgrade e.g. No exhaust fan in bathrooms

This hotel has lovely grounds and is in a great location for both bay and beach. We had a tower room and found that furnishings are dated and room cleanliness could be better. The staff was outstanding; all friendly and helpful. This is a really nice property for families.

I came for a work conference, National Famers Union and it was very pleasant stay. Relaxing, clean, and nice area.

What keeps us coming back is the child-centered atmosphere of the hotel and the food services.

overall was great---they need to pay attention to detail more with cleanliness. the restaurant was fantastic!

Outdated room in the tower. Balcony door couldn't close completely.

Just got home last night from our trip. Loved everything about it except the $25 a day fee to park my car. Hotel is rather dated, however.

It's worth to stay at the Catamaran. Staff was really nice and helpful. The room was really clean and well kept. The facilities were nice. And, we got a killer offer via Orbitz. We stayed in one of the rooms with a kitchen, and were able to have breakfast and snacks. There were condiments, but there was a Ralf near by, so it wasn't a problem. The resort has lots of different amenities, and it's well located.

While at our stay at the Catamaran we enjoyed the beautiful tropical garden. The hotel staff is friendly, rooms ar super comfortable and clean ... one of our favorite hotels to stay while in SAN Diego.

Great grounds and amenities. Their restaurant was first class, reasonably priced with a great breakfast and dinner menu. They're in the process of refurbishing the rooms since they are a popular destination. Their staff was the best aspect of our stay friendly, responsive, and accommodating. We'll return.

Room had a great view, very clean but could use some updating.

Everything was fine, really planned our own agenda. The bed was comfortable.

The grounds are beautiful, the staff is exceptional, very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay. The only thing I would say was that the room was a bit old in and need of an update. Some of the outlets didn't work and there was a tear in the couch. But it was clean and like i said, the grounds were really nice, we took many walks on the beach and through the grounds. The restaurant staff was so wonderful and there is seating on the beach. We didn't spend much time in the room, so it was all good

Extremely nice experience. Very friendly hotel staff, excellent internet, great view from tower rooms.

We were in SanDiego to visit family. The hotel grounds were well maintained. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Nice large heated pool. Whirlpool was also a plus.

For the price we paid per night this hotel was a disappointment. The food there was over priced and small quantities. It definitely needs a complete remodel. The only good thing about our stay was the location and the fact they had discounted tickets to Sea world and the zoo. They also charged us a 152$ spa fee and we never stepped foot into the salon!! Buyer beware if you are looking for a 4 star resort stay this was not comparable.

Bedding was terrible. AC wasn't working and no one responded to requests to fix it or offered other options. Parking was horrible and charged 23$ a day to park! My family and I will not stay there again. It wasn't worth the money we paid.
