    Amazing bar service, Ross and Ricardo were awesome. Ross has a very wholesome personable vibe to him that makes you feel comfortable. I’m so thankful that we chose catamaran for the location of the wedding. Thank you for the amazing service and hospitality.

    Marta is the best!

    Marta is the absolute best at Catamaran. She is so welcome and inviting. She made our time so special. The hotel is great as well located right off the bay. You won’t be disappointed with the location and all of the amenities. We will be back soon!

    Diante was a delight!

    Everything was wonderful! Making my reservation with Diante was an absolute pleasure; he was very informative and set a positive tone for the trip. This initial positive experience alleviated any travel anxiety I had. We all had a wonderful time and certainly plan on returning again.

    Pleasant Surprise at The Catamaran Resort

    My stay at the resort was extremely satisfying. I have stayed at this resort many times over the past 10 years. I noticed that the quality of the staff and amenities had declined over time. Last August I visited The Catamaran and was very disappointed. I was unhappy to the point that I wrote a letter to the management detailing my complaints of how I felt unwelcome and that their service was substandard. This visit was an absolute surprise. The staff were friendly, responsive and overly helpful. The Oceana restaurant had quality menu selections, the staff was very receptive to our needs and provided satisfying suggestions for our dining choices. They were very proud of their kitchen staff and Chef Paul. The diner of hanger steak and duck, the full service brunch and the breakfast were all fantastic. I look forward dining here again in the future.
