We found this hotel to have been very nicely refurbished. the room was nicely appointed and good sized. The bathroom and dressing area are well laid out. Excellent landscaping. The room and grounds were immaculate. The service was very friendly and quite helpful. The only flaws were that the air conditioner in our room was positioned so that it blows... More

My girlfriend and I went for an overnight getaway and this was the perfect spot. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We arrived in the morning before check-in and the hotel stored our bags and offered beach towels and showers if we wanted to go to the beach before the room was ready. They called us while we...

We stayed there on our last trip to Catalina. It was before the summer rush, so the atmosphere was very relaxed. Firepit in the center of the courtyard was a nice place to hang out in the evening, and the wine tasting was nice in the late afternoon. We got the deluxe package, and would go down to the front...

Wonderful experience. Can't say enough good things about this hotel. Newly remodeled, a casual elegance aura. Beautiful inner garden, amply supplied with comfy lounges, rooms are very roomy and gorgeous with dreamy beds.Great continental breakfast provided, and the wine and cheese mixer at 4:00pm is a nice extra. Centrally located right on the beach strip/walk, but also quiet and relaxing.... More

Hello, Would like to thank the staff at the Pavilion for a great stay in Avalon on Catalina Island. The hotel is an older property, but has been tastefully remodeled. The rooms, while not large, are designed for convenience, and are attractive. Soundproofing could be better. However, this is all more than compensated for by the helpful staff (thanx to... More
