Good customer service and very nice room. Everything looked just like the pictures online. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return for another visit. Great continental breakfast and the cookies in the evening were delicious. Great location, centrally located!

The rooms & property are very clean; the staff is very friendly. Great location! The continental breakfast is just right, including Starbucks coffee. We loved the atrium style hallway. The view is one of the best on Crescent Ave.!

Just experienced a wonderful stay at the Vista Del Mar. I had a courtyard room which was attractively furnished and very clean with very good air conditioning. The bed was also very comfortable. All of the staff was excellent. Check-in and Check-out were very smooth and quick. Notably, Juan was a wonderful staff member, we had a lovely conversation about...

room was a bit on the cozy side but well appointed, however the real star was the staff they proved to be super helpful and most accommodating. will definitely return and would recommend, however next time around will try to get one of the sea side views.

Everything about our stay here was lovely. We arrived to an air conditioned room and a welcome note. The beds were very comfortable and the room was spacious (we had the deluxe courtyard room). There's nothing fancy about the continental breakfast, but the morning coffee was strong and plentiful, the fruit and pastries fresh...and you get to have it all...

From the moment you walk in to The Vista Del Mar the staff are super friendly and want to help with anything you might need. My check in was quick and easy, as usual. I think my favorite part of the hotel is the comfortable beds and luxurious sheets and bedding. Normally I don't sleep well when Im away from...

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this hotel. We had the Avalon suite, and it was beautiful. The room was cool when we entered from the heat, which was nice, and a ice cold bottle of sparkling cider ( we don't imbibe, and let them know before we arrived, thank you for listening!). The bed was so comfortable and we...

The Vista del Mar is the perfect place to stay in Catalina, and we have done so over the last 20 years. Though there are only 15 rooms, each is well appointed, with comfortable beds and great amenities. They are centrally located on the waterfront in Avalon, and I love sitting in their lobby chairs looking out at the ocean....

We just returned from another idyllic weekend at Hotel Vista Del Mar! It truly is a spectacular hotel and setting! It's the only place we would ever consider staying at in Catalina. The rooms are so luxurious and everyone is so nice and helpful. Great hotel!!!
