We stayed in room 107 last weekend. The ocean view from our room was quite nice and the room was great. We had a very comfortable king bed, kitchen with everything we needed, a small but adequate bathroom with plenty of hot water and a flat screen TV. The bed had a sheet over the blanket which I really appreciate...

Had an enjoyable time at the hotel. Our room was clean and available at the time specified. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Hotel is located close enough to shops and beaches and yet far enough so that the noise does not disturb you. The fully functioning kitchen was very useful. We took advantage of the discounts the hotel provides...

Five of us spent a weekend here in their 2 bd/2ba condo. The accommodations were great! Beds were comfy and the place was super spacious. Nice outside balcony off both bedrooms and a great common area too. The complimentary p/u from the boat dock was a bonus. A great place to stay especially when you need more that just the...

So I spent 3 days trying to find that perfect place to stay in Catalina in celebration of my Mother & Sisters birthdays. After reading ALL the reviews on both Trip Advisor and Yelp, it was hands down the El Terado Terrace. Unfortunately, a day prior to arrival we had a family medical emergency and needed to cancel our trip....

Our stay at El Terado was fantastic. Ivan and the rest of the staff there were very friendly and accomodating. A perfect example of this was that the ice machine was in the process of being repaired the weekend we were there. When Ivan realized that we needed some ice, he actually brought a bag of ice to our room!...

Great location! We stayed in one of the apartments that accommodated 6. It was a great set up for our family, with a good amount of space, a nice kitchen, and a quiet, convenient location. A bit of a steep hike up, but I would definitely recommend as a great place to stay.

We just stayed in Catalina for two nights for my friends birthday. This hotel was a great place to stay. There were 4 of us in the room and there was plenty of room. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating is because we didn't get a room with a kitchen. We will definitely stay here again,...
