First time visiting Catalina Island and couldn't be happier with Pavilion! First of all, it's literally a 3 minute walk from the Ferry to the Hotel. The front staff was INCREDIBLY helpful in all matters. Morgana went above and beyond with advice AND helping me accrue a shuttle pick-up for our return in Long Beach. Breakfast was delicious! For a...

No air conditioning the 1st two nights, (burnt compressor). At first we thought we weren't programming the thermostat correctly, but after the 2nd night of listening to a squeaky fan and experiencing night sweats, we asked for maintenance to check out the unit. The maintenance guy showed up right away and told us the unit needed to be replaced, the...

Location location location....steps from the beach!! Beautiful lush tropical courtyard to relax in resting on a comfortable chaise lounge. The flowers and trees are soothing! Complimentary breakfast ~ superb. Wine and cheese social in the afternoon ~ excellent and fun to meet new friends around the fire pit. The staff is attentive and friendly. Looking forward to my next trip!!

The Pavilion exceeded our expectations. Service was great, location was great, amenities were great. I don't think I'd ever stay any where else on the island. Breakfast was nice but the Wine & cheese hour was even better. Can't wait to come back!!!

Just returned from two nights at this great small hotel in Avalon on Catalina Island. For southern Californians it is a fantastic way to check out for a couple of days and leave hectic behind. The Pavillion is small and quiet with beautiful grounds and friendly staff. Rooms are well decorated and clean. Hotel offers a complementary wine and reception...

We went over to Catalina Island for an overnight trip and enjoyed the pavilion hotel very much. The 4:30 wine and cheese was great. You could go back and get as many glasses as you wanted. They also held our luggage until our room was ready for check in as we took a morning boat over to the island. Upon...

Our stay at The Pavillion was excellent! From the warm and friendly staff, to the clean and comfty rooms. The Continental breakfast is not an after thought, it is a tasty variety of food. The wine tasting was also excellent and well put together. Im not sure i would like to stay anywhere else when visiting catalina!

Stayed a couple of nights on our family's first trip to Catalina Island and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. The location is spot on, right in the center of everything.
