    Review for Oscar in Room Reservations

    Oscar was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the hotel, rooms, and San Diego area. Very professional and warm. He helped explain the different room rates, what to expect for COVID, and how to save the most money during our stay. Excited for the trip even more now!

    Great Reservation Experience!

    I just got off the phone with Victoria, who was most helpful in making reservations to meet our family's needs. She had helpful suggestions for transportation. Look forward to our visit to the Catamaran Resort.

    Great service, starting from calling reservations. Diante was great--he patiently answered all of my questions, even when I wasn't sure what exactly I was asking. He definitely made me feel welcome and excited about my trip, and even told me the best place to watch the sunset. Great service all around.

    Great service when scheduling

    I would like to thank Victoria for her help scheduling. She was very kind and helped with all the requests. I have visited before but was booking for family and she took care of everything. Catamaran continues to impress every time I go back!

    Spring break getaway!

    Everyone at the resort has been amazing, especially Dave “Hop” Hopper, who is so attentive, friendly and helpful and made our stay extra special! We are having a great time and we will definitely be back :-)
