    Beautiful resort for a quick stay-cation!

    What a beautiful resort! Thank you to Celina for the best service in helping us choose the best room. She was so patient and kind. Best reservationist I’ve ever had by far. The lobby is gorgeous we felt welcomed, the room was clean and well appointed and the views were beautiful. We’ll definitely be returning.

    Special recognition for Diante Ashby

    I want to give special recognition to Diante Ashby for being extra helpful. He took his time to resolve my problem. He deserves a raise. He is an excellent employee that makes your resort a better place. He deserves more than 5 stars. If there were to be 10 stars, he definitely deserves them. Thank you.

    Go see Jess at the spa!

    Got some knots in your back? Go see Jess at the Catamaran spa!! I play a lot of golf and sit a ton for work so safe to say my back is rarely feeling loose… Jess got me ready enough to play Torrey pines the next day and I thought it was impossible. Excellent massage with a smile!

    Vacation Fun

    We have stayed here before and absolutely love it. Really awesome staff and I always book with D’Ante. He is so great to work with and is always so helpful. The view of Mission Bay is stunning. I love how the ocean is right across the street as well as the boardwalk that takes you to so many great eating establishments and cute little shops. Just love it!!!
