I was hesitant to book so I called reservations to discuss their policies. Diante was amazingly patient, answering all of my questions and helping me get the best price I qualified for on my room. Super excited to stay and I'll update my review

It was an easy walk to everything at the resort and a short walk across the street to the Pacific Ocean. Highly recommended. Read less

We brought a party of four to the Catamaran for the Friday night LUAU. You can't beat the relaxing location on San Diego's beautiful Mission Bay. Upon our arrival, our awesome Banquet Captain, Dave Hopper, made sure that our evening was a memorable one. Dave set us up with some lounge chairs and towels on the grass, a perfect spot to enjoy the Bay, chow down our delicious pulled pork and chicken, and be mesmerized by the wonderful LUAU show with traditional Hawaiian music and dancing. We couldn't have asked for a better place to entertain our out-of-town guests! Thank you so much Banquet Captain, Dave Hopper, for making our Friday evening so relaxing and fun!!! You're the best! We could have hung out there all day! We will definitely be returning to the Catamaran! Read less
