We were very pleased with our stay. The room was very spacious. Although the bath only had one sink and the toilet/shower area was a little crowded the rest of the room made up for it. The staff was a pleasure to work with and the continental breakfast was a delight.

This hotel is impeccably, we really enjoyed our pleasant stay, everything was wonderful. All the staff were professional and very nice, I like their welcoming and warm smiles. And our room was so so beautiful, I just could not believe how wonderful the view was... Would definitely be back, highly recommended!

Love, love, love this hotel! Small and intimate with an excellent staff. Great location and wonderful views. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The extras like milk and cookies in the evening were a nice touch.

We were treated like royalty - complete with balloons and chilled champagne waiting for us in our room when we checked in! The staff was VERY nice and helpful. Thank you for making our 3rd anniversary memorable!

My husband and I spent our honeymoon on Catalina Island and thanks to other reviewers we decided to stay at Hotel Vista Del Mar. The location was perfect. It was less then a 5 minute walk from the port. Once we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff member. We choose to stay in the ocean view room and... More

My girlfriends and I stayed at the Vista Del Mar during an impromptu birthday trip. We were so delighted by the room and how kind and helpful the staff was. Loved the milk and cookies at 8pm also. We stayed in a courtyard deluxe room. The room was well appointed with a fireplace, comfortable linens and ample closet space for... More

Just returned from a one night stay at Vista Del Mar. Property is a quick walk from the ferry dock and steps from the beach. Room is very tranquil, filled with amenities including keurig machine, well-stocked mini bar and fireplace. Would definitely stay here again--especially for the price. Great touch with chocolate chip cookies with milk in the evening! One... More

We just returned from a two night stay at the Vista Del Mar. We stayed at this hotel primarily because of the reviews we read here. Unfortunately, we weren’t overly impressed. The room we stayed in was nicely decorated and we had no problem there. The location is very good, as is the location of most hotels in Avalon. I... More

Nice place to stay, staff was awesome hope to return soon. Only complaint was no vacancy on following days to extend stay. I recommend booking in advance. Again thanks to the staff for making our stay memorable.

Make sure you book a package. Yes it on the 3rd floor. But well worth the walk. My girl and I Did the zipline. They have milk n cookies at night. And the courtyard is beautiful. Highly recommended for couples. Leave the kids home.
