Great Spa but also nice small bar to get a drink. Often has live acoustic music as well.

A fun, family oriented, lively, and convenient spot! Accessible to the beach/ bay and nearby Ralph's Supermarket and Starbucks. Some activities nearby are biking, kayaking, and sailing, etc.

My first night (Friday) at the resort and hotel was busy and there were lots of commotion/ noise (ex. show and wedding). The driveway was congested of people and full lots. The place itself feels dated and the community areas have lots of tall greens ducks, fishes. The ducks don't seem to mind human interaction.

The second night the noise level was extremely loud until 2 am. We had to call the front desk and it still took over 1 hour for the noise control to go out. We heard the music and conversations very clearly.

There is a parking lot and structure. The structure parking spots are very tight. We did request an extra luggage rack and that was handled fairly quick!

Another wonderful #gogosdevents all paid for by #GogobdotSD. Summer Sunset Luau at the Catamaran Resort for the July Gogobot San Diego PRO event. We were treated to full buffet dinner (all-you-can-eat), welcome Mai Tai cocktail + flower lei, performances, including fire and hula dancers and with live traditional music.

The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, a tropical hideaway in San Diego’s Pacific Beach community on the sparkling shores of Mission Bay. The Polynesian-themed resort, only 8 miles from San Diego International Airport, offers casual elegance with palm trees, lush vegetation, tiki torches, koi ponds, waterfalls, and exotic birds that like to strike up conversation with guests. With Mission Bay as their backyard and the Pacific Ocean across the street, there's no better choice among San Diego hotels hotels the water. They host amazing Luaus Tuesdays and Fridays from 6 to 9 PM every summer. Go check them out!

Okay, this place is amazing. A lovely Hawaiian/island themed hotel right on Mission Bay, the Catamaran is not only a lovely place to stay, they host events year round. We joined their summer sunset luau series, which was absolutely amazing. Right on the water, they had an all you can eat buffet, live music and hula dancers, flame throwers and traditional fire dancers, island drinks and leis, and a beautiful ambience on the front lawn. It was so incredibly fun! I'd recommend this to anyone, and I cannot wait to stay at the hotel!

Enjoyed a lovely luau on the beach on a beautiful summer evening. It was easy to pretend that you were in Hawaii, as the dancers were very good. The food was typical luau fare, and the guys carving up the pigs were great! The inside of the hotel is decorated very tropical style and looks like it has been updated recently.

If you love Hawaii or ever wanted to go, you have to experience the Summer Luau at the Catamaran Hotel in San Diego. The entertainment was top notch - even better than the entertainment I had at the hotel I stayed at in Waikiki. The outdoor setting had a beautiful view of San Diego Bay. The buffet style dinner was good.

Beautiful hotel in Pacific Beach along San Diego Bay. Excellent food, service, activities, and an awesome Summer Sunset Luau. I enjoy the luxury feel and how welcoming they are. Plenty spacious. Nice seating outdoors at the restaurant. Luau was a lot of fun and food was great! Mac salad, curry chicken, kalua pork, and whole pork were highlights.

Beautiful hotel with a beautiful view. Attended the luau they out on and the music was great. The buffet was mediocre and the service wasn't the best. Overall it was still fun. Great entertainment!

Attended their exclusive laua event. Got to eat a kalua pig and it was awesome. Requested the ear and it's basically a super fresh chicharon. That paired with an awesome view of the bay made it a great time.

Luxurious resort with incredible views. Not to mention they basically have a zoo (parrots, turtles, coy fish, waterfalls, you name it). The grounds are well kept and very beautiful. We dined upstairs for the Mother's Day Buffet, which had a wide selection of food to choose from (lots of options and omelette station) plus bottomless mimosas. Pretty standard in terms of resort buffets/service.

Beautiful grounds, amazing views. Coy fish ponds, parrots, turtles, waterfalls, the works. Located in a premium spot by Mission Bay. We didn't stay at the hotel, but we dined upstairs for Mother's Day Brunch then took a boat across the bay. The buffet was elaborate (lots to choose from) but just okay. The boat (William D. Evans) left 10 minutes before the listed boarding time leaving half of our family behind without warning, so just a heads up, make sure to board all together!

I have not stayed at the resort but have enjoyed the Sunday champagne brunch a few times. It's stocked with seafood and other high-quality brunch items. I love being able to sit outside on the water and enjoy the fresh air and people-watching. Top-notch service and for $50.00 it's really not too unreasonable for a lovely meal.

Make the most of your vacation with a relaxing and luxurious Catamaran Spa treatment. During summer months up for a Luau dinner with entertainment - No need to be a hotel guest. Looking for a budget experience - walk past on the boardwalk to watch the lighting of the torches. This hotel has Mai Tai's not to be missed.
