    What a great, tropical hotel

    Ocean - the best of both worlds! In particular, I want to compliment and thank Polo for his quality service and kindness. We enjoyed talking with him for a few minutes - he is a wonderful employee and you should be thankful he's a team member!

    FANTASTIC Customer Service!

    This resort is under construction so just beware that your room may not be top notch. However, the customer service definitely exceeded expectations! My husband forgot his winter coat in the closet. After a text or 2, we received his coat in the mail less than a week later! I was convinced it was a goner. THANK YOU so much!

    Came down to San Diego for a wedding with some friends. The hotel is under quite a bit of construction but we had a nice quiet room by the pool. Hannah checked us in and greeted us everyday we were there. Oceana restaurant was quality if you enjoy sea food. All staff we encountered were friendly and if we had more time, the hotel has a lot of amenities to enjoy. The weather was beautiful and the hotel sits right on the bay. There are a lot of food options and things to do nearby.

    Perfect Birthday trip

    I just booked my next stay at The Catamaran Resort with Senior Reservations Sales Agent, Renée Stauffer. She was so helpful and kind. Now I know that I booked the perfect room. I highly recommend this resort!
