Awesome Resort
We loved our weekend at the Catamaran! Fabulous location right on the bay, close to beach restaurants and shops. So many activities for families including rentals, movies, arcade, boat ride, bird show, jellyfish, and ducks. Coffee bar, restaurants, fire pit bar area. Great pool and Jacuzzi with wonderful music on the weekends. Great fitness center and spa! Friendly, welcoming staff. We were gifted a tray of fruit, wine, cheese and crackers upon checking in. We will definitely be back!
