We chose & liked this resort mainly coz of the outdoors nature. Its very beautiful. Unfortunately, the rooms are not that fancy. They can do more on that. We had the best view room. Both mission bay and ocean view. With the high rate they charge, a free breakfast would be great. Overall not bad, great location and awesome events especially Sunset luau.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
My husband, baby and I stayed for 4 nights this past week and disappointing would be putting it lightly. Our room was on par with a seedy motel. My baby found a hair tie full If black hair and a press on nail on the carpet. Our sliding door to the patio was only operable with hulk like force. I doubt the Fire Marshal would consider many of the egress doors at this property to code. Our trash was never emptied the single time we had our room cleaned during our stay and was overflowing the day it got cleaned so we were having to stockpile It next to the trash can in bags. Our balcony was wet the whole time with a considerable AC leak coming from the room above. It was also dripping right in the doorway so you had to walk through it on and off the balcony. My mom ordered a bottle Of champagne and a fruit plate for my birthday which was never delivered and we still can’t seem to get a Confirmation that she will be refunded. On our last day we went down to the pool which was cautioned taped Off because someone threw up in it. We ordered drinks from the pool bar and the bartender made us doubles without asking and of course charged us double which we weren’t happy about. I could go On and on. We stayed at the Catamaran because of its proximity to my sister-in-law’s house but I have to say I’m shocked that this could be considered a 4 star Hotel. Forbes needs to get back down there to re-rate this property.
