  • Great beachfront room and luau

    My mom and I decided to get away for the weekend, and we booked the luau pretty last minute. It was a total blast. The fire dancer was really awesome, and we got to learn about all the islands and their slightly discernable changes in culture/dress. The food was delicious. The hotel is great too, try to get a bay-front room if you can its right on the sand!

  • Great Stay at Catamaran Resort

    Great hotel/resort! The bell hop was a great help while moving from one room to another. We had been upgraded and without having to ask he stepped up to make sure all our luggage got to the right room. The entire staff treats you like family.

  • Hawaii in San Diego

    We had an absolutely amazing time! The location is phenomenal; right on Mission Bay, nice walk to the beach, great restaurants nearby but you don’t have to leave the resort at all. They have live Hawaiian music out by the pool and Jacuzzi a tropical bird show every afternoon Hawaiian dance and torch lighting on Saturday nights a family movie night on Friday night the gym has equipment that overlooks the bay and the restaurant makes you feel like you are in Hawaii

  • Feels like you are on an island

    The location is perfect, and the resort and hotel are beautiful. It feels like you are on an island within the resort. You can also step outside your room right onto the bay and walk to the beach in five minutes. The service was excellent as well. Great staff and service! We highly recommend staying here.

  • New rooms really make a difference

    We were the first guests in newly renovated rooms in the 600 wing. Everything in the room was very nice from the carpet and wallpaper to the tasteful and large bathroom. They have brand new 60+ inch TVs and small fridges. Even though we were on ground floor with beach walkout, the rooms were very quiet at night. As we were getting ready to leave, the general manager stopped by and asked our thoughts on the new rooms. I mentioned my one issue was the drapery not closing quite as far as I’d prefer and he told us new drapery was on order and would be installed soon. He was very pleasant and took my comments seriously. The staff was attentive and kind during our stay. Thanks for a great stay in Mission Bay.

  • Movies on the grass…

    I liked that resort is family oriented. Movies on the grass was nice. Great pool, hot tub, arcade, drinks & snacks by the pool are awesome! Convenient restaurant with gourmet and kids menu, coffee bar is very good and shop had all the items we needed without having to walk to Ralphs. This is our second time visiting and we'll be back.
