We had our wedding at the Catamaran on 10/11/14 and our day was beyond amazing. I seriously cannot say enough good things about Amber Kelly, the catering coordinator there. We had a very long engagement (16 months from the time we booked the venue to the wedding date) and that means she got A LOT of emails from me during that time period. She was always super fast at responding and was really easy to work with and so nice. We were really upset when 5 weeks out from our wedding we were told that there was going to be construction at our ceremony and cocktail hour site to update their restaurant. The news really blind sided us as we picked the Catamaran for its aesthetics both outside and inside. Amber completely understood our concerns. She was able to reassure us and in the end delivered a beautiful ceremony and cocktail hour space despite the construction that you didn’t even notice was there. (Except for our family who was staying there all week and had to hear the jack hammers and drilling on the week days.) She also helped to set up the ballroom with our homemade centerpieces, kept all my supplies overflowing in her office for a week, and snuck down the stairs behind me without anyone seeing to fix my train and veil as I came down the aisle.

We would very strongly recommend the Catamaran for wedding ceremonies and receptions. I agree with the previous recommendation -- Sylvia Ramirez is AMAZING! We also planned our wedding from out-of-state (Kansas City, MO), but Sylvia made everything very low stress and our day was absolutely perfect! Sylvia was extremely responsive, especially the day before when I started freaking out about little details (and last minute cancellations by guests due to the Chicago radio tower incident).

Everything was on time, the food was delicious, and the service was absolutely fantastic! Multiple guests commented about the friendliness of the staff. The waiter serving our sweetheart table was a complete sweetheart himself and I even got him to dance with me! Another waitress let me know that everyone was commenting about how sweet and thoughtful our personalized notes were (this really meant a lot to me). The North Lawn is beautiful and The Kon Tiki Ballroom is a beautiful room, with a beautiful ceiling, a balcony, and plenty of space (we did not want our guests to feel trapped). I can not say enough great things about Sylvia, the Catamaran, and the wonderful kitchen and wait staff. Thank you, Catamaran, for making our day so perfect!!!

We would highly recommend having your wedding ceremony and reception at the Catamaran Resort. Sylvia Ramirez was our wedding coordinator and she was AMAZING. We had to plan our wedding out of state due to being in the military--as you may know, this can be very stressful. But, we made a very specific wedding timeline and Sylvia made sure everything was executed exactly as intended. It's crazy to be able to say honestly that our wedding day went PERFECTLY...everything was on time, the ceremony location was perfect (on the Mission Bay side near the beach), the cocktail hour was really nice, the food was incredible, and the reception hall (Kon Tiki Ballroom) was beautifully decorated---plenty of space, especially if you have a larger wedding with many guests. Our big day was perfect and we had the best time ever.

Right from the start the Catamaran seemed like they wanted our business. Sylvia was a pleasure to work with, and very responsive to emails. Since I was an out of state bride this was very important. Everything went flawlessly, and they even cleaned up the honeymoon suite and left a little gift :) Thanks Sylvia!

We had our wedding on the South Beach, cocktail hour on the lawn, and full service dinner reception upstairs in the Boardroom. Everything was perfect. I was a little worried because the hotel banquet coordinator we had been dealing with told us on Thursday (while we were driving down there) that it was her last day. But she assured us that her replacement was well briefed and the event went off without a hitch. The venue was perfect and the food was awesome. Plenty of time allowed for each course and the staff was responsive. If you're looking for a beach wedding, this is the place to do it!

Last month I married the love of my life in San Diego, CA. I started planning the wedding while I was still living in Washington, DC and my future husband was here in San Diego. While most of the wedding planning was done via email and internet searches, I was able to spend a couple days in San Diego 3 months before the wedding. Fortunately all of the vendors, especially Sylvia Ramirez, the Catering Sales Manager at the Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa, exceeded my expectations and made our special day better than I had imagined. The outdoor ceremony space was breathtaking with views of the bay, the reception area was elegant and perfect for an intimate event, the service staff was professional and extremely accommodating, the food was superb and brought accolades from all of the guests, and the rooms were lovely. Thank you, Sylvia and Catamaran, for creating such elegant and enchanting ceremony and reception spaces and providing such exceptional customer service for our wedding day!

The Catamaran Hotel is a gorgeous venue! We worked with Amber and she did a fantastic job helping with every aspect of my wedding planning. She was prompt to return emails and phone calls and answered all my questions appropriately. She is also very knowledgeable of local vendors and helpful with everything dealing with the hotel. The food was delicious and the chef was very nice. The Aviary ballroom is perfect if you're wanting a large dance floor with a gorgeous Mission Bay view. The North Lawn is a perfect setting for either a formal or an informal ceremony. Hotel rooms are a little outdated but the view of Mission Bay makes up for it, and they weren't dirty or anything. Overall, the Catamaran was a great location for our San Diego, day time, beach wedding!
