My wife and I stayed at the Catamaran from 9/13/15 to 9/20/15. We love the beach and were lucky enough to get a 9th floor room facing Mission Bay. We could also see the Pacific from our balcony. Our room was large and included a full kitchen. We ate breakfast on the balcony every morning and witnessed first hand the hard-working employees. They were sweeping the sidewalk, raking the beach and putting out the umbrellas and chairs for ANYONE to use, besides setting up for weddings and meetings outside. The view was wonderful and we could see all the activity on the water and on the large sidewalk/path below. The gardens at the hotel were beautiful also and included ducks, large gold fish and large tropical birds. Bikes were available for rental near the property also. There is a pool on the property also, but we preferred the beach.
When we pulled up to this older hotel building , I thought I would be disappointed . Instead, I was very pleasantly surprised ! The room was immaculate and decorated in a cute, funky , retro style . The bed was soooo comfortable with great, top quality pillows and sheets . Great shower and bathroom, cold AC , and the staff was friendly and helpful. When we called to ask if there was a vending machine with drinks onsite, they even brought us up two sodas with ice ! I will definitely come back .
i first booked a lanai bayside but toured some of the units 2 nights before and was dissatisfied with my booking so i upgraded to a bayside bungalow. unfortunately, tho i requested a suite similar to the one i toured and told the desk not to give me the smaller bungalows, they still assigned me the smaller bungalow and was completely different frm the suite i consequently chose. also, before i saw the unit assigned to me, i had to sit on my car waiting for 20 mins as some car was parked on my spot. i called the desk who said theyl send someone pronto but none came so i simply parked on another vacant spot assigned to anothr unit. same thing when i complained about getting the wrong suite. took 3 calls to the front desk to get it resolved and have me moved to the suite i paid for. 1 call to complain, 1 call to ask about the supposed personnel delivering the new unit keycard, and another call to follow up as another 20 mins went by without this 'staff'. also, i had not known there would be a festival at the park across the resort and the roads were blocked. the traffic people said to make a uturn on the next stop only to find that the next stop has a 'no u-turn' sign. same for the road going the other way. it wouldve been nice if theyd made a notice regarding such traffic changes. i felt i was late checking in at 4pm, but i only really got into the right suite at 530pm. beach was nice tho-no noise complain, modern interior decor and suites has firepits in front of the bungalows
During warm weather, crowds pack the waters off Mission Beach and Pacific Beach, two of the most popular stretches of San Diego sand. These laidback locales are known to host the occasional farmer’s market or arts festival. Mission Boulevard connects both beaches and leads north to La Jolla.
