Location, room, service, price are so worth the stay at Catalina Island Vista Del Mar! I have already suggested to others how great the accommodations are to check it out! The personnel at the front desk are super friendly and go up and above to please. We had cookies and milk served directly to our room in the evening!

Stayed at this amazing location for 2 nights. The experience was above and beyond from the moment we arrived. We stayed in a King courtyard room, the bed was dreamy, the fireplace can be lit with a switch right by the bed and they even deliver warm cookies and fresh glasses of milk to the room! The continental breakfast was... More

We are repeat visitors to Catalina, and have stayed at various inns and hotels and at Hamilton Cove. Hotel Vista del Mar treated us to our best visit yet. The hotel has been recently renovated and is immaculate. Every detail has been seen to. The furnishings are first class; the décor is elegant; the atmosphere is one of a small,... More

We just spent 2 nights here. The staff was warm and gracious. We had Suite 102 overlooking the bay. What a room! This was the same room you see on the web site. It was beautiful and the view was spectacular! This is the place we'll stay the next time we come to Avalon.

We stayed there for my birthday. Wow! It was so nice and clean. It's the only place I will stay from now on! We felt so spoiled. The staff so friendly. They provided soft cozy robes, a safe for valuables. The fireplace and flat screen TV was great. I can't say enough good things about this hotel.

Overall, we had a lovely experience at Hotel Vista Del Mar. When I called to reserve the room for my family of three, the receptionist clearly explained that the hotel is located on the third floor and they would be happy to help us carry our bags up the stairs. Not a big deal at all. It is a small... More

This hotel has it all, location, service and ambience. Located in the center of the pedestrian area, it offers convenient access to dining and activities. The rooms are small (we were in 105) but beautifully appointed and every square inch is efficiently used. Our host Juan was very helpful and friendly as was Mia. The staff has been top notch....

The staff maintained an outstanding attitude with exemplary customer service for our entire stay. Our room provided outstanding comfort with optimum efficiency. Been traveling for three decades but can't ever remember feeling like... More

Worse customer service ever. We travel all over the world and have being in different hotels in all different continents, and usually I don't write for any hotels, but I put some of my time to describe this horrible hotel’s customer service. Due to my pregnant wife, I ask the reception "Alex" to stay couple hours more in our room... More
