This resort was wonderful for our little family of 3. We had a 1 year old with us and this was quite peaceful to be with him. This is not a party place but is a short walk across the street to the beach and all the restaurants. Since this hotel is located on the bay side it’s a quicker walker right through the resort to the sand and water. We found the bay side to be perfect for our young son. The rooms themselves could use a little updating but as far as the grounds everything is beautiful and inviting. We loved the parrots and the turtles and all the fish that live on the grounds. Plants and foliage are very well taken care of. We definitely recommend this place to families who are looking for a great spot in the middle of San Diego without the party scene.

The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa - EXCELLENT CHOICE
Reviewed 12 hours ago

The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa is a tropical, coastal paradise. The venue is absolutely stunning with a beautiful variety of flora and fauna. When you arrive your blood pressure instantly drops as you view the grand entrance featuring a water fall, carved wood art, catamaran and island relics. The Bay view is stunning. The pool, spa, hot tub, the ducks, the cockatoos, the toucans, the koi fish, the palm trees, the gardenias all make the back drop for a 5 STAR experience.
The venue is AMAZING but the people of The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa are hard working and so friendly. They go above and beyond to make your experience enjoyable. I would like to specifically mention the following for excellent service: Lindsey Magnuson, Rebecca Baumwitt, Kim Gaines, Dave Hopper, Brenda, Sandra, Steve Scarvey, Pedro, Jorge, Hollis, Yewby, , Mikko, the Audio Visual team and the valet parking attendants.
Every single person from the Resort offered me help and assistance. On both of my visits the General Manager greeted me and made me feel so welcome. He made me feel like my experience was the only concern he had in the world.
We hosted our Sales Meeting at The Catamaran and the whole process went smoothly.
My one suggestion is my group struggled with the parking ticket stickers working correctly, maybe work with that system to fine tune it.
I would also like to add that I had broken my foot and was using either crutches or a knee scooter for the three days at the resort. I had no problem getting around the venue. Mikko helped me to my room and set up my luggage so that I could easily access both pieces of luggage. Also, Miss Brenda, Miss Sandra and Pedro gave me bags of ice that I placed on my foot to help me make it through the conference. This was a life saver.
I keep thinking of one more thing that was so pleasant...
Miss Yewby and her team did a fantastic job of serving a spectacular and delicious lunch on the The Lawn - Beach South.
Clearly, I could go on and on... Bottom Line- you will have a wonderful experience at The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa.
I would highly recommend The Catamaran to anyone!

Oceana Coastal Kitchen is AMAZING!!
Reviewed 1 day ago

The Catamaran Hotel was absolutely beautiful to walk through on the way to Oceana Coastal Kitchen. I had made a reservation for 7:30pm and our outdoor table on the heated patio was ready and had the most amazing view of the bay. I had informed them while making the online reservation that I had some 'big news' (I was going to propose after dinner). The food, drinks, ambiance, and service were spectacular. Our server Jordan was great. The manager Robert was aware of our special occasion and made sure our night was flawless. A night that was going to be special for us no matter what, was made perfect by the staff at Oceana. I can't thank them, or recommend this place enough for a special event or just a great time at a stunning place.

Catamaran Spa is a wonderful place to unwind
Reviewed 3 days ago

The spa at the Catamaran Resort and Spa has great customer service. You start out with a tour of the gender specific locker rooms with combination lockers, changing rooms, steam shower, sauna, and showers. All the amenities are there for showering and doing your hair afterwards. Christina took tremendous care of me for my therapeutic massage. She hit all the hard areas with the right amount of pressure. She used hot towels to help loosen those muscles that are stubborn. The workers are the resort are very accommodating and provide good customer services. The resort itself is relaxing and just 2 blocks from Mission Beach and sits on a quiet bay also. The rooms need some updating as they seem dated and worn. They are clean as is the resort as a whole.
