My stay at the Catamaran Resort Hotel was wonderful !! We bumped into Dave Hopper again and he informed me of the new Covid standards at the hotel. I felt safe watching the movie on the grass with social distancing in place as well as at the pool. He followed up daily to ensure that I was enjoying my stay. Everyone was friendly and courteous and I would recommend staying at the Catamaran anytime. Lots of fun things to do at the hotel, beach and bay with plenty of dining opportunities on-site and close by. Read less

We had a really relaxing 4 night staycation at the Catamaran Hotel. The pool was open and not crowded at all. Rooms were clean and spacious. We stay here a couple of times a year and Dave Hopper once again took care of us and was very nice and helpful. Told us about a few nice spots to watch the surfers and told us about the Thursday night movie on the grass. The front desk staff were also very friendly. Great long board walk around the bay to rent bikes or take a walk. Also very convenient water boats of various kinds available to rent. Can't wait for another 6 months to return to our favorite resort. Always a plus is meeting other great hotel guests at the pool and on the grass! Read less

Had a great stay! Since it is a pandemic, I was worried about traveling and staying in a hotel. When my boyfriend and I checked in, the hotel gave us masks, sanitizer, etc. for free. Steven walked us to our room and he was great! He had wonderful recommendations for the area. I will definitely be going back!
