Historical Traveler Reviews Catamaran Resort Hotel And Spa San Diego
Location, Location, Location
There is one great thing about this hotel and that is the great location to both bay and beach. Waterfront rooms provide a great view and convenience. But....the rooms were uncomfortable and not maintained well. The staff appeared inexperienced. If you are looking for a true "resort" - this is NOT the place for you.
What a DUMP!!!
This is one of THE WORST hotels I have ever encountered in my life.
This is one of those situations where I feel that the other reviewers must be smoking crack.
We have been to San Diego numerous times, and last July 4th, we decided to try a new hotel (new to us). Based on the "Fodor's choice" review, we booked the Catamaran. For $330 per night, I was led to a dingy, dirty, dark room on the 7th floor of the tower, right near the elevator. The hallway was narrow, with a low ceiling, and I could see that there were a ton of people packed into the room across the hall.
There was absolutely no soundproofing, so I could hear all the noise from the seedy part of Mission Beach below. Worst of all, I had a view of the parking lot. I immediately checked out and went straight back to where we stayed last year, the Hilton on Mission Bay, where I got a beautiful, quiet, newly designed, bayfront room for $229 per night.
This is the first time in my life that I FLED a hotel, shaking with anger and pure disgust.
How does the Catamaran stay in business? Who pays these prices? It's astonishing.
What a relief
After an horrendous experience at Paradise Point Resort, which fortunatley only lasted 2 hrs (As long as it took to check out and book into another resort!!) we arrived at the Catamaran, and opted for a room with a view in the tower. We were on the 5th floor and had a fantastic view of the bay and the Seaworld fireworks display at night (If you like that kind of thing). The room was great with full kitchen and microwave included. The room was always spotless and was cleaned thoroughly every day for our 10 day stay. Staff very friendly and the resort is perfectly located We will definitely go back, however not in June gloom again!! Great place.
One of the most beautiful hotels I've been in. My friend had his 16th birthday party in the Executive Suite and it was amazing. Beautiful view, beautiful room with 3 seperate rooms in it and a full size kitchen. If you ever get to stay at this hotel and can be in that suite I would highly recommend it.
Nice Place, Great People!!!!
I had a nice three day stay at the Catamaran. Easy access and close to many of San Diego's fine attractions. The nice thing was, I didn't even have to leave the resort to have a great time. The rooms were clean and the atmoshere was friendly. If you make the choice to vacation here, go meet the great staff at Moray. Dainty piano bar with personality plus. The people are great. Mike
Just returned from 2 nights at the Catamaran. We walked in and found 2 beds. We called the front desk and requested one bed. She could only guarantee us a queen bed for one night and we might have to move to another room the next night. She offered us a king suite with ocean view for $35 more/night. Not worth the money. The "living room" had the ocean view but the bedroom had a king bed with 1 foot of clearance on the left of the bed and 2 foot of clearance on the right side (sort of like sleeping in a box). The window in the bedroom looked out to the garden not the ocean. We stayed in our original room. The bathroom wallpaper was peeling off and one of the his and her sinks was clogged(the king suite only had one sink). We had a second story room (not in the tower) and could hear everytime someone walked up/down the stairs or shut their doors. All in all, not what we had hoped for.
A lulu pig roast dinner
I had good time enjoying a show for Lulu with a pig roast. The dinner was delicious and enjoyed the music on the beach with my kids and my wife. Worth staying there for a lot of fun and visit the beach and the bay with the Catamaran Resort. Even they have kids program at the resort.
Get-Away place to stay at Catamaran Resort
An Exotic Place to visit with a lot of tropical plants and beautiful parrots from all over the world at this hotel. Great staff, Great food, Great Service, and Great Get-Away.
"A Beach Zoo Hotel"at Catamaran Resort Hotel
The Catamaran is a beach with Eden Gardens around. Beautiful fish and parrots with streams and ponds around the resort on the beach. Rare Palms and plants from all over the world. I loved the parrots. I wish I can take one with me. But these birds belong at the garden. There is a magnificent waterfall in the lobby as we entered from outside. It's a "San Diego Zoo Hotel on the Beach" at the best location. The hotel offers water sports to rent kayaks or jet ski or windsurf at the bay. Even the food is good to eat at Atoll restaurant or Cannibal bar on the beach. I'll love to come back again soon with my finance.
What a view!!!
Having lived in San Diego for 19 years, the last thing I want to do, is to stay in a hotel that is about 15 minutes away from home. But the Catamaran Hotel in Mission Bay was a home away from home. My husband had a 2 days workshop at the hotel. While I soaked in the sun with my bag of chips and soda by the beach in January, he was enjoying lunch with his buddies in the Atoll restuarant. We had a breathtaking, fantastic room facing the bay and beautiful city lights on the 10th floor. On the last night we even dance to the music of Salsa Encendida. We had a wonderful 2 nights. After being spoiled by room service breakfast and the friendly staff, I sure didn't want to go back!! I will recommend you to try them.

I love to ride bikes. On a bike, I feel completely alive. I’m entranced in my own carefree world where anything is possible. And because I’m so enthralled with my own little world, I generally like to bike alone. Aside from a new indie album or shuffled playlist, there is nothing but the sound of passing traffic.
Which brings me to my next point- the man I will soon marry is one of the few people I know ...
