We were gifted a stay at the Hotel Vista Del Mar for our wedding and chose to visit on our First Anniversary! We have have been to Catalina numerous times and have stayed on our boat, hotels and at Hamilton Cove. However, our stay at Vista Del Mar was far more than we both anticipated. When we arrived to our... More

Having been to Catalina numberous times over the last 30 years this is a deffinite gem that should... More

Vista Del Mar is a treat, a splurge- room was wonderful; caring staff, note they will take your bags up the stairs. Best housekeeping staff, and watch for the gentleman feeding the salt water fish: that ceremony ensues at around 10:00 am, when they all swim up expectantly. Watch for his ladder. They could advertise that! The open atrium-lovely. Selection... More

Love staying in an ocean view suite here with your private balcony. The room is spacious, well appointed, and has a large 2 person hot tub, King size bed, and a fireplace so it is great for couples! The staff is friendly and helpful. They serve a nice continental breakfast in the morning and warm cookies in the evening. The... More

My husband surprised me with a mini vacation for our sixth anniversary to Catalina Island. I haven't visited as an adult and was very excited. We stayed at the Hotel Vista Del Mar in one of the two ocean view suites. The suite was amazing. First off, the view was one of the best on the island facing the beach... More

We do agrede the air conditioner was a bit loud, but everything else was fine. We did not notice excessive noise or distractions. The purpose of our visit was... More

Don't overpack, have to cart your suitcases from ferry & up two sets of stairs. The very nice staff came down as soon as they saw we had bags but we had already gone up. Great beautiful small hotel, good coffee in AM, best for couples

Me and my friends were going to Avalon for the jazz festival so when we booked this hotel we really didn't know what we were getting into. The hotel was immaculate and all the staff went above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable (even cookies and milk waiting in our room when we returned in the evening). The room... More
