Rated 7.3 in 353 reviews. 144 rooms.


Welcome to the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, a tropical hideaway in San Diego’s Pacific Beach community on the sparkling shores of Mission Bay. Our Polynesian-themed resort, only 8 miles from San Diego International Airport, offers casual elegance with palm trees, lush vegetation, tiki torches, koi ponds, waterfalls, and exotic birds that like to strike up conversation with guests. With Mission Bay as our backyard and the Pacific Ocean across the street, there's no better choice among San Diego hotels.

Whether you enjoy sunbathing at the beach, relaxing by the pool, rejuvenating in the Catamaran Spa’s hot tub that overlooks the bay, paddle boarding, or cruising up and down the boardwalk on a bike or Segway, we have something for everyone. When you’re ready to venture out into America’s Finest City, you're only 3 miles from SeaWorld San Diego, 12 miles from the world-famous San Diego Zoo, and 28 miles from LEGOLAND California.

Each of our 310 rooms and suites has a private balcony or patio with breathtaking views of Mission Bay, the Pacific Ocean or tropical gardens, while our studios feature kitchenettes perfect for preparing “home”-cooked family meals.

Located 100 yards from the Pacific Ocean, this San Diego resort features an outdoor pool and full-service spa with beauty treatments. Rooms at the resort include free Wi-Fi.
