Great hotel, fun / tropical decor, awesome service from Pool bartenders Nathan and Chris, Chuck at valet and Hannah at the front desk and amazing location. We enjoyed eating at Oceana in the resort but lots of great restaurants close by. I will be back!

We had a great time! Nathan and Chris took great care of us at the bar pool! Three days of fun and sun were perfect. Can’t wait for the new rooms to be completed. Please watch for the locals that sneak in the pool without wrist bands! See you in July!

Such professional customer service provided by Lacey at the registration desk. She couldn’t have been more helpful or accommodating. She really made our stay! The Catamaran is such a lovely tropical setting- beautiful grounds, fabulous beach, even amazing talking parrots and cockatoos! Very relaxing place.

Shakira provided excellent customer service! She was very helpful answering all my questions and researching the ones I didn't know. When it was going to take a little longer she had the courtesy to come back on the phone and let me know and ask if I still wanted to hold. Great job, Shakira! Thank you.
