We recently stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great experience....great suite, great service and great amenities. The location is right across from the beach, easy access to the town for shopping and restaurants. It is a true taste of a tropical paradise. It's a popular place so one must get an early reservation. We spent time with family... More

Other times we visited Catalina Island and stayed somewhere else, it was only because we couldn't get a reservation at Pavilion. One year had an... More

When we first arrived I was a little surprised at how small the rooms were and then my husband reminded me that we were in Catalina and all rooms (regardless of hotel) tend to be small. The grounds of this hotel are really quite relaxing and a perfect location for walking to all of Avalons attractions. We loved that the... More

We had two rooms at this hotel- one for my mom and for us (family of 4); our room was nice enough- kind of small but clean and comfortable! Our sons' liked my moms room better and hung out there more. The view was better. The staff members were helpful and courteous- the wine and cheese hour was fantastic! :)... More
