The server Kiana, at the Ocean restaurant was attentive & most helpful. The food there for breakfast was excellent. I ate there once, and realized I should’ve ate there more often. It was great! However, The resort fee was a bogus “hotel just wants your money” charge. I inquired at front desk to see if they can lower the fee bcuz I only stayed 2nights and Used WiFi, and they said it’s a service fee that was implemented in June. So He proceeds to inform me that “regardless if you use the pool or not, it’s a charge everyone must pay”. Well bravo Catamaran, you taught your employees well on what to say if a guest inquired about the resort fee. But here’s the thing, I understand it’s covid, & they had the jacuzzi closed, the fitness center closed, the shows were cancelled on Sunday too - so no luau lighting ceremony. So what am I paying a resort fee for? Oh ya, just WiFi & being able to use the towels in pool area. Now The Area is nice... location is excellent but that resort fee is really not fair to the customer when 3/4 of what you’re paying for is closed. Hotel could’ve been fantastic but they operate more like Spirit airlines for hotels, In the sense they charge for everything. Btw parking is $27./day. And they also charge $100/night deposit (multiple that by how many nights you are staying) for every night you stay, On the plus side they Do give you a covid kit of masks, sanitizer and wipes.

The staff was friendly. Hotel grounds look nice. You feel like your in a tropical paradise. Hotel was walking distance to beach. Room had a great view but really needs to be renovated. The room looks very old and vent was not working, no patio furniture. There was no socket close to the bed to charge the phone. For the rate they charge this hotel really needs to be renovated.

Rooms were outdated. Furniture was old and everything was kind of dingy. Bed wasn’t very comfortable. I liked that they had safety precautions in place for covid. We had a partial ocean view on the 9th floor and it was a really nice view. I feel like any floor lower than 7th floor would not have the best view. Staff at front counter seemed to kind of rush us. Overall the hotel was just ok. Not great and not bad.

Great property with a fantastic location across the beach close to restaurants and grocery stores. The retro vibe of the hotel complements the chill surf vibe of Mission Beach.
