Never did I dream that this would in such a perfect location. It was my first trip to Catalina Island and I wanted to be able to walk everywhere in the city. I did not want to be saddled with a golf cart. The location was perfect. The staff arranged for tours for us and gave us suggestions for restaurants.... More

The settings either in breakfast room, or outdoors in patio with comfortable furniture and fire pit amidst beautiful tropical foliage and ocean views across the way,... More

Just stay here! The reviews say it all, but in the end, this is the only place we would stay next time! It has comfortable seating right on the beach Boardwalk with a lush plantation feel. The bed was so comfortable that I just ordered the sheets!

We stayed at a premium King room. These rooms are on the second floor and don't have a patio. I believe the rooms on the ground floor with small somewhat secluded patio are of a similar size but are less expensive. The rooms are quite comfortable and have all amenities one would expect for such a hotel. The bed is... More

An easy walk from the pier our luggage was brought to the hotel by a hotel valet. The breakfast was simple, but more than enough. Evenings featured a wine and cheese hour which provided... More

Beautiful hotel. Right on beach front. We asked for an early check in which the staff said it made be possible. Our room wasnt ready along with three other couples. The staff didnt seem well trained but the cleaning team was amazing and so nice! Breakfast was also a huge highlight. Besides check in, it was a overall good experience.

This is the nicest property in Avalon, a distinction that is well-deserved. The staff is extremely attentive, the rooms are contemporary and well-designed, and the conversation around the fire pit in the evening with other guests is not to be missed.
