  • Sip & Savor on the bay dinner series

    We attended the Cutwater dinner in a separate room of 12 people. The food was great. The drinks were great. And the service was top notch.

  • Home away from home

    Love the new renovation. The rooms look so new and refreshing. The friendly staff makes you feel like home and are willing to assist you. We had a gentleman quickly unload our vehicle and was at our door before us. He was a very fast efficient worker. We Loved the refreshments in the lobby.

  • Brunch at Oceana, one for the Books!

    Unlimited seafood buffet brunch with beachfront views?!! Say less. This Sunday brunch is one for the books! Add Oceana Coastal Kitchen to your list when you're in San Diego! With the buffet you can order a brunch plate since the buffet has cold items you order a hot plate. From quiche to prime rib. I got the French toast that was AMAZING- vanilla sauce and raspberry butter. Did I mention the bottles mimosas too?! the price was more than worth it

  • One of my favorite places to return to

    This was my sixth or seventh time staying at the Catamaran, and I keep waiting for one of my experiences to not live up to the others. It still hasn’t happened; the welcome is always warm and delightful.The rooms are large and well-decorated; the bar, restaurant and coffee bar are all great; the grounds are beautiful; the spa and pool are terrific; and the location at the heart of Mission Bay is perfect.

  • Great resort in a great location

    Such a fun and friendly hotel. Can walk directly across the street to Pacific Beach and take advantage of all of the shops and restaurants. Hotel is located directly on Mission Bay where you can go for a great walk or run. Staff is very friendly and the hotel is finishing a renovation of their guest rooms.

  • Dog-friendly

    Had an incredible time with my wife, Jamie. Great food, gorgeous views. The birds and koi added an adventurous touch and the spa and pool were perfect additions to our lovely stay. This is the place to feel spoiled with the one you love. Oh, and they’re dog friendly too. Our little Merlin fully enjoyed himself too.

  • 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.
