We loved this hotel! Finding it on the internet, we were happy to see it was even better than we expected. We opted out of the balcony view and to our surprise they have 2 bistro tables & chairs in the lobby balcony overlooking the beautiful views. Was so nice to have a drink & chat with other guests or... More

Beautiful little hotel right by the shore. Balcony views are lovely to sit by and relax. Room was sufficient clean and fireplace was an added bonus. Would definitely stay here again. A little gem in Catalina

Very nice open design, balcony overlooking the sea front. Very nice rooms that feel like mini suites and great service. Breakfast is very pleasant and there are milk and cookies at night. The location is central, 3rd floors feels great view wise.

Vista Del Mar is the destination hotel for Avalon. An easy walk from the Ferry and perfect location in town to restaurants, shops, beach. The rooms were very clean, comfortable, nice amenities, and very quiet, We didn't hear the other guests nor the people on the street. (Cars & golfcarts aren't allowed in this area.) This was a very beautiful... More

I found this hotel by reading other Trip Advisor reviews. We just finished our 2 night stay at this hotel and I have to say, I am surprised that there are any negative reviews or things to say about it!

We were so impressed by this hotel that we can't wait to come back! The hotel staff is so friendly and helpful that you feel like you're staying at a Bed and Breakfast. Even though we didn't have an ocean view room, we took full advantage of the seating in the lobby overlooking the ocean. The hotel is in a... More

Wow! From the moment we walked up the stairs to Hotel Vista Del Mar we knew we were in for something special. This hotel has everything you want for a nice relaxing trip away from the "real world."
