We picked this place mainly by reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. After booking it a bunch of bad reviews started coming in and we were getting worried about staying here but we knew that we are a pretty laid back couple and figured we would make the best of it. Overall we were very pleased with our experience and only had a few minor complaints. Here's our pros and cons.
-Full kitchen that had almost every appliance you needed
-Nice pool area
-close to the beach
-fairly central to the main attractions
-the reception staff were awesome and helped us out at any time of the day or night
-the happy hour was fun, bartenders at Catalina were awesome.
-some hidden fees you might not realize
-cleaning people werent very thourough but did do dishes for us
-no phones in the room
-limited seating at pool area
-you can hear other people in other rooms
-may need to bring your own sharp knife/other cooking utensils because they arent provided
Overall we had a fantastic time and though we had some minor complaints if your trip can be ruined because of these things then dont stay here and pay more somewhere else. Also if you dont like walking then dont stay here because you will take cabs to ocean drive and lincoln ave, but it isnt too far to walk.
