Our room was in desperate need of updating. Old, worn carpeting & the sliding screen door was inoperable. Maid service was extremely slow. The public areas of the resort were very nice.

This hotel is reasonably priced. Walking distance from the beach and amenities are amazing. Perfect for families, my room had a kitchenette and was stocked with everything needed to cook. There was a grocery store within walking distance. The resort has a pool & spa and there is plenty of activities. We had a wonderful time!

The pool area could use some person monitoring it, putting hats, shoes on chairs to save them for over 2 hours. The hot tub is used as a kiddie pool with too many children just swimming in it, people sitting on the access stairs to the pool and hit tub.

We love the Catamaran Resort. We have stayed here before. This time we came for a quick anniversary away. The resort upgraded our room for free and has chocolate covered strawberries with champagne in the room for us. We will be back!

Like: The property is situated where you can access water from both directions! Dislike: You have to pay an additional fee per day to park your vehicle.
