We had such a wonderful stay this weekend at The Catamaran Resort! We were staying in Pacific Beach for a marathon downtown, and this resort provided the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure. The mornings were blissful and calm, as we enjoyed a coffee from the on site cafe and would walk along the bay. During the day the pool and facilities felt like a great escape from the rest of the Pacific Beach action, but of course the location of this resort was perfect for walking to all of the restaurants in Pacific Beach and the boardwalk. The staff is also what makes this place so special. We want to thank Marvin at the front desk for being so friendly, he truly made our trip one of a kind! Read less

Marvin, one of the agents behind the front desk at the Catamaran Resort, treated my girlfriend and I excellently. He upgraded us to a much larger suite in a more expensive area of the resort at the same nightly rate as the room we had requested originally, and was just generally helpful in giving us the lay of the land. He was also very friendly.

I Traveled to San Diego from out of state on a business trip, and had the wonderful pleasure of staying at Catamaran. To be more specific my time at Morays was exceptional. Right away walking in I was greeted by Mr. Alejandro. This gentleman always made sure I was taken care of and I never felt forgotten about. The service industry is always a stressful business, but Mr. Alejandro knocked it out of the park and seemed to be handling it with ease. I will definitely be coming back ! Thank you for a great stay! Read less
