One of our best Getaways ever! Dave Hopper was so helpful on where to go and what to do and see while staying at the Catamaran. The entire staffs very courteous and friendly. But, Dave Hopper was "exceptional" We will definitely recommend the Catamaran to friends and family!

The Catamaran Resort is a beautiful property and in a great location. I was here working as a vendor for a holiday party and Banquet Captain Dave Hopper was very attentive, professional, and offered great service!

I went to Caramaran with a few friends to celebrate my engagement. We really enjoyed our time there and also had the best drinks. I can't wait to go back again and have more drinks. The bartender Chez was awesome. He made it more enjoyable. Thank you!

I am a travel agent in Houston, TX, and looking for "non-chain hotel line" to stay at during our visit. I want to also write an article for a local publication BUT before deciding on which property to do so, I have some questions: 1. Is the luau year-round? We are coming end of December. 2. What is the most preferable location on property to stay with young teens? 3. Are there bicycle rentals nearby? Thank you!
(1) luau is not year round (summer only) (2) no idea (3) lots within a five minute walk

Many reviews mention that need for updates and improvements to the rooms. Does anyone know if the Catamaran has started renovations or has plans to begin work? Thank you.
We were there for several days in Nov. Our rooms were fine but did have couple of very minor problems like screen door easily came off track, etc. Certainly wasn't a problem and we love our garden room. Signs of redoing roof on one set of rooms but not a problem. Would highly recommend it. Would love to go back.

Is there a cost to attend the luau? Is it a dinner show? Looking at hotel options to enjoy and review on our NYE trip to San Diego. Thank you.
Yes there is a cost. Pretty high one, There is a show and a buffet and music. Our room was right next to where it is but we were told that it only happens during the summer months. There was such a huge crowd. They open it to the public, just like their beach.

Does the resort have shuffleboard?
Not that I saw unless it was somewhere in the pool area.
