Good breakfast, great service, great location, rooms are cozy, beautiful courtyard, stayed here with our 3 kids and truly enjoyed ourselves. However, way too much money, but hey it's Catalina. Paid approx $750.00 for 2 nights

We stayed three nites at the Pavilion, thoroughly enjoyed it and would return. The hotel is a ten minute walk from the ferry dock, was recently renovated and the staff is helpful, courteous and pleasant to deal with. I particularly note Salvador who helped as at check in, check out and several times in between. Jose O. looked after us... More

Hotel is one of the closest walks from the Catalina Express dock. Hotel staff was extremely friendly and nice. Rooms could of been a little cleaner in the bathroom (found hair in the tub). Complimentary wine and cheese from 4-4:40pm, and fun fire pit to sit and relax. We brought our own champagne and enjoyed it at the fire later... More

Loved our stay here. Right on the main drag looking over the water/marina. The rooms were very clean, nicely decorated. The accommodations were the best I have had in Catalina. I highly recommend staying here.

Had a great stay here from start to finish. Got to the Island early in the morning, well before even most people check-out, and were able to use their showers and changing rooms to get ready for the day. Even able to grab a bite from the breakfast they had for guests. Our room was clean, and despite having a... More

Ok, eventually, got to the right room. Mistake #2. Had to cancel our zip line, asked Jesus at the front desk to cancel it, and... More

This place is very nice. It's a short walk from the ferry, has nice amenities like wine. & cheese in the late afternoon and a continental breakfast in the morning. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the beds very comfy. Situated right on the beach. the fire pit is a nice touch on a cool evening.

For a friends weekend, 4 of us decided to head to Catalina island. We shared a room, located on the second floor, and found everything very comfortable. The location cannot be beat. Even more important, the staff was very helpful; they were personable and friendly. The breakfast in the morning has an assortment of fruit and pastries. The Happy Hour,... More
