Close to Pacific Beach

Facing the calm expanse of Mission Bay in north San Diego, and a 3-minute walk from the sands and famous boardwalk of Pacific Beach, family-friendly Catamaran Resort and Spa makes a great base for water lovers. SeaWorld® is 3 miles (4.8 km) away, and it's a 20-minute cab ride to downtown San Diego or San Diego Zoo.

On Mission Bay

A lovely old paddle steamer, the Bahia Belle, sails at sunset, offering free family-hour cruises (seasonal) then cocktails and dancing. Modern Californian food at the Oceana Coastal Kitchen comes with Mission Bay views - as do soaks in the outdoor whirlpool at Catamaran Spa and workouts in the open-air fitness center.

Free WiFi and DIRECTTV®

Guestrooms are inspired by the Polynesian-colonial style, with bright accents complementing antique-style wooden furniture. Most rooms have balconies or patios with bay or coastline views. WiFi is free, flat-screen TVs offer DIRECTTV®, and guests can play music through iHome™ docks.
