A great welcome from the start, and flowers and bubbly in our room as arranged for our anniversary, the staff are always helpful and friendly, it is right on a beach, with it's own Pool, and at a very competitive price, the view from our room was faultless, looking across to English Harbour, and pelicans fishing just off the beach...

We were in Antigua to greet our two children who were rowing across the Atlantic. Predicting when and the length of stay was tricky but the Cat Hotel completely went with the flow and then found accommodation for surprise visits from other members of the family at short notice. Thank you. We loved our ground floor room and stepping out...

Reviewed 4 March 2016

Perfect location for restaurants, beaches, English Harbour and exploring the unspoilt parts of the island - car rental is recommended! It has its own small private beach and on-site restaurant which was OK but would advise encouraging others to venture out and taste the local food and experience 'real' Caribbean life! (a lot cheaper too!) Rooms are clean although could...

Although the rooms could do with being modernised, the location, staff and onsite restaurant and bar more than makes up for it. Our room was number 8 and was located on the ground floor with two steps to the hotel beach and sunbeds. There were two sea kayaks available free of charge to hotel guests and these were perfect to...

Perfectly situated on a small beach. Easy access to 2 restaurants, we preferred the one on site, Captain's Table. Campus a Restaurant is a gentle stroll though more expensive. A supermarket, cake and ice cream shop and a bus stop are close, though Willy the taxi driver much more fun. The decor is not 5 star but all perfectly clean...

We've stayed at the Catamaran four times over the last twelve years and enjoyed every visit. In fact it's our favourite place to stay in the Caribbean! It offers an excellent combination of peace and quiet, together with being right on the beach while the restaurants of English Harbour are only a 5 minute drive away. We will also like...

With its nonchalant style and welcoming staff, this hotel is the solution to sterile gated communities that plague Caribbean Islands. From the moment you arrive you feel a part of the daily activities of the marina and pier and the rest of the enchanting village of Falmouth Harbour.
