Beautiful boutique hotel right on the waterfront. It's a hidden jewel with just 15 rooms. We had no problem finding it or getting luggage up to the third floor. The staff is more than willing to help you with luggage or anything else you might need. We stayed in a courtyard deluxe room. Absolutely amazing use of space in the...

Located right on the beachfront in Avalon, and close to everything, this hotel is really very relaxing. Though one has to walk up two flights of stairs to the main desk ( with bags ) it is well worth the final destination. With a sit down lunge area just off the main lobby with exotic fish tank the views are...

Alana did most of the work for me, from reservation to check out. She was very helpful and informative. The whole staff were all nice. The whole hotel is beautiful. Loved the hotel room, it is very cozy. Loved the bed - wanted to sleep the whole time, it's so comfy. I would definitely go back. Its worth every penny....

I have been visiting Catalina (Avalon and Two Harbors) for as long as I can remember. I am not usually wow'd by the hotel choices in Avalon as most seem to be a bit run down an in need of TLC...so I was pleasantly surprised with the entire experience at Vista Del Mar. I got the special package that paid...

Its off season so we got a wonderful mid-week deal along with our roundtrip Catalina Express tickets for this great little hotel. Very nicely appointed, super clean with great staff. The continental breakfast in the morning and hot cookies and milk in the pm are a nice touch. The rooms seem recently updated with granite countertops and stylish decor. We...
