This is a fantastic small hotel with a private beach, amazing views and a wonderfully lovely staff and restaurant. I spent 5 nights here and enjoyed every minute, whether sitting on my comfortable patio overlooking the harbor, sailing one of their free-to-use sailfish sailboats, or sleeping with the door and windows open and listening to the water rush the beach....

This was my third time staying at Catamaran and I must say that this place is consistent. The rooms are clean and they staff are very attentive. I have enjoyed my stay each time and I must say that if you are looking for a nice, relaxing piece of heaven in the Caribbean, Catamaran is the place for you.

We didn't stay in this hotel, but our friends did and we ended up eating in their restaurant many times as the service, food and atmosphere was really good.

We stayed here for a short break en route from Montserrat back to the UK. As it was out of season we were able to negotiate a very reasonable rate for accommodation (although the quoted rate did not include service/taxes which add another 22% to the total - watch out for this small print if you come from a country...

My daughter, 2 1/2 yr. old grandson, and I stayed at the Catamaran for a week in March. From my first telephone call to Fiona, the owner of the Catamaran, months before our arrival to the day we left I felt extremely well cared for. She and her staff met our every need. This is not a large resort hotel!...

Let me start by saying that I travel for a living, so I stay in hotels every week. This is not a five star resort or hotel, however it is very quaint, quiet and peaceful. The location is perfect, right on its own little beach, over looking the marina. English Harbor is right down the road which has restaurants and...

Sitting on the balcony watching the morning come in over the harbor, I felt very lucky to be here. The view and location are two of the best things about the Catamaran.

This review is a tough one for me to write, as my husband and I really like Feona and the staff of the hotel.

This hotel is very tired and not secure or safe. The windows had no latches, fly screens broken, broken plugs and sockets and more besides. The bed was uncomfortable, service nonexistent and food dreadful. The only saving grace was the location which meant one could get out to eat in nice places and have some drinks. Very disappointed but it...
