First and foremost, the Catamaran Hotel is a fantastic place visit in the Caribbean, and a tremendous value. My wife and I celebrated our 47th anniversary with a week at the Catamaran. Since we live in Michigan USA, it's always been somewhere warm, for decades. We've tried the chrome and marble all-inclusives, but much prefer the privately owned properties, such...

We spent two weeks in Room 12, a superior view room overlooking the pool on one side & the sweeping bay in front. The room was a good size, with basic facilities, 2 of everything- plates, cups, bowls & cutlery and several glasses. The bathroom was small, but functional & our balcony a good size. Some of the wooden furniture...

The Catamaran Hotel is my home away from home. The beautiful views, the laid back vibe, the super friendly staff, the pool & beach right in front of the hotel and the awesome food @ the Captain's Quarters.... cannot be beat. Also, every room has a kitchen which makes life easier.

I always read other people's reviews before I write my own and I am always staggered how differently we all see things. How refreshing, but it makes it very difficult to make informed and sensible decisions about possibly your one holiday of the year. Thank god we only stayed one night at this hotel because it was really not what...

We had great time in the hotel. As mentioned in other reviews, do not book if you expect luxury room. Rooms are indeed quite dated and first minute in the room I had regretted booking it. i was surprised why others left such great reviews. But here is why we loved staying at the Cat. We did not like the...

This hotel is located about 30 minutes outside downtown Antigua, but is a treasure. If you looking for a luxury hotel with luxury accommodations this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for privacy, friendly and dutiful hotel staff and great food at a budget price, this is the place for you. It is a small...

We have just returned from a lovely week at the Catamaran. This was our first visit to the Caribbean but we didn’t want to stay in a sterile all-inclusive hotel and chose the Catamaran based on its size, TA reviews, price (really good value) and location near to English Harbour. We were also on a limited budget (which is difficult...
