There were 3 of us (hubby and me and our son). We went to the island for one day and spent the night at Hotel vista Del Mar. It was located above restaurants and in prime location. The look out to the water and the beach was pleasant. The staff was perfect. Nice people and from the minute you said... More

The room was a mid-priced room, very well appointed...they thought of everything to make your stay perfect. The bed is extremely comfortable, the decor tasteful and attractive. The staff warm and friendly, and very helpful. They offer a well rounded continental breakfast and even chocolate chip cookies and milk in the evening. It is right in the center of the... More

We just returned from a trip to Catalina Island, Avalon. Our stay at Hotel Vista Del Mar was very nice. Vista Del Mar is a small boutique hotel but the property is elegant, charming and just steps from the beach. The rooms are updated, nicely furnished, and very clean. The fireplace in the room is a nice touch although we... More

Surprising small hotel located in the heart of Avalon. We were nicely welcomed and found the rooms very comfortable and impeccably clean. The hotel is very convenient to beach , restaurants and shops. My only suggestion is to have more seats to accommodate guests at breakfast time.

we arrived on the ferry around 9 am and checked in with Jaun. He held our bags in storage while we enjoyed a Mexican breakfast downstairs from the hotel. The location is perfect, rooms are clean and beautiful. The free continental breakfast is just enough and you can sit and overlook the beach while enjoying it. We definitely would stay... More

This small hotel truly was a gem! Our family wanted a quick get-away, and spent one night here while we enjoyed two days in Avalon. The location is perfect - right in the middle of all the action - with gorgeous ocean and pier views from the front patio. The rooms and plant-filled atrium were immaculate and the staff were...

This Hotel experience was so incredibly pleasant, the staff went beyond most any other. We got there a little early before the rooms were ready, they offered to take our bags to the room for us when ready. We went for a walk,when we returned we were escorted to our room and presented with the rooms details. Beautiful,nicely decorated,plush accommodations... More

Upon our arrival at the Vista Del Mar the staff greet you with a smile and they are also eager to assist. Beautiful entry with a large salt water tank filled with bright gorgeous fish. Places to sit, relax, read and soak in the beautiful foliage around the premises. In the evening fresh warm cookies and milk are placed out... More
