Our room was very cute and clean. The bed was comfy and the fireplace made it very cozy. Not a lot of extra room with one child in the pullout bed. Milk and cookies at night and DVD library were nice touches.

We stayed at Hotel Vista Del Mar for one night this spring, and we had an excellent experience. The room was great, the location was unbeatable, and the service was superb!! The gentleman at the front desk was very accommodating and quite knowledgable about the area. He was exceptionally helpful throughout our stay. We cannot wait to come back.

On April 8-10 we took our first family trip to Catalina Island. Hotel Check-in time was at 3pm but we decided to take the ferry that arrived at 11:15. It was about a 10 min walk from the ferry to the hotel. We went to drop off our luggage so they could hold it for us but there was no... More

My husband and I went for the first time to Catalina Island together this past weekend. We stayed at Vista del Mar with our 8 month old baby. The room was beautiful and perfect for the baby. The room was clean and modern. We really took advantage of the bar area since it had a small sink, we were able... More

I don't even know where to start!! When I paid for the hotel in advance I thought it was a bit pricey but once we got there totally worth it! The night Manager went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. ALL the staff treated us with the best service we have ever had at a hotel. If we... More

Lovely hotel, central to restaurants and shops. Nice clean room with fireplace, very cozy. A birthday treat for me from my husband. The hotel had a birthday surprise in the room at check-in. Staff very courteous and helpful. Very nice, will definitely stay there again in the future.

We just left the Hotel Vista Del Mar and everything about this small botique hotel was amazing! The hotel is a very short walk from the ferry terminal and the location is perfectly located in the center of Avalon. Our room was a courtyard King suite and spotlessly cleaned and very comfortable! My wife and I felt so relaxed during... More

Staff was very accommodating. Breakfast was good, cookies at night were a special treat. They had movies you could borrow, nice touch. Rooms are beautiful. Fireplace, awesome. It was great that they held your luggage for you before your check in and after your check out times.

My teen daughter and I stayed at the Vista Del Mar for the better part of a week. The room was spacious, modern yet cozy, with a fireplace that certainly added the perfect amount of warmth to the chilly evenings. (The fact that the bathroom had no door, though, was a bit of a surprise, and was the only down... More

Dear Sylvie: Thank you very much for all your wonderful compliments. This response is only to help clarify for others reading this your statement that "the bathroom had no door" . All of our bathrooms have doors. We designed the bathroom as two rooms. One is the shower and toilet room, with a door. The other is our skylighted sink... More
