Marvin at the front desk really know how to give great hospitality! Stayed here for the first time and let me tell you. I will be booking a trip for my family here to enjoy. The vibes were great, the workers at the bar were in a good mood very attentive. Since I am from Las Vegas, I am used to good service. This experience was fantastic, I can’t wait to come back! Thank you Catamaran Resort!!!

Hotel's Favourite
My family came to visit me in San Diego and booked a room at the Catamaran. I was a little skeptical of how the hotel experience might be during this crazy time with the global crisis. To our absolute delight, the Catamaran is operating better than ever, and it’s very apparent how serious they’re taking the Covid-19 protocols. Dave Hopper, the banquet coordinator, took the best care of us and treated my parents like his own. He got us a reservation at the hotel restaurant, made excellent recommendations for fun things to do in town, and assisted my mom who has a hard time walking, in getting an accessible room. We look forward to their next visit and more wonderful interactions with the great staff here.

We rolled into the Catamaran late from a long day of traveling feeling hangry and irritable from being cooped in a Tesla with four children, for three hours. Driving a Tesla for the first time from LAX to the Catamaran presented me with other challenges that are unrelated to this review but helps describe my irritability. Ericka checked us into the Catamaran Resort, and she quickly noticed that there was a shortage of rooms that would fit our family needs because of the refurbishments happening on the property. She consulted her Supervisor Hannah and together they worked together to find the perfect room for our family that made our stay at the Catamaran amazing. “GREAT TEAMWORK”I wish that we could stay here for our entire trip. Numerous occasions we consulted these ladies and the others at the front desk for assistance and they all were very helpful and found one way or another to facilitate our needs. I am one of those high maintenance people with last minute request and expects to be taken care of and these two ladies with the rest of the staff on the premises exceeded all of my expectations. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Sand Diego.

My company held a large event at the Catamaran Resort for several days in Sept. 2021 and I was blown away by the service on all levels. The staff was outstanding - they make you feel like family and are so accommodating with late requests or changes. Brenda, Pedro, Kelsey, and Sandra M in banquets went above and beyond to make sure our event was a success and guests were happy. They were friendly, a joy to talk to, and extremely professional. It's very obvious and reassuring when working with them, they have all been there for a long time and enjoy working together. Planning the event was also extremely easy with the help of Kim Gaines who is such an expert in her field. The hotel is very clean and has such a relaxing, fun vibe. We have been coming to the Catamaran for years and plan to continue hosting future events here. You will not be sorry!

Hop took care of my family and I all weekend. The catamaran is a great place to take your family and relax. It’s close to everything. The beach, good restaurants, bars, and night clubs. We will definitely be back.
