The catamaran resort is a wonderful place to stay if you and your family are visiting san diego. it is a short trip from the airport, downtown area, balboa park, and sea world. the resort is family friendly with a beautiful pool and lush grounds. the bay is accessible right from the hotel, and the beach is a short walk from the resort. all the staff are very kind and courteous. the food at the restaurant and bar area is excellent, but like any resort, a little pricy. the rooms are a little outdated but still very clean and comfortable.
