What a delightful, charming and quaint old Catalina style hotel! The charm begins as you walk down an alley to the hotel's entrance - a garden paradise. Apts A-D reminded me of New Orleans and had its own courtyard. The office can be found after walking up a few steps, as you pass the small cottages. Ester was very friendly... More

I booked this location because I got a deal through Amazon Travel. When I arrived I felt as though I had been duped into booking the place. It looked nothing like the images on the Amazon Travel and the room that i ended up staying in was nothing like what was pictured when I booked it. The service at the... More

I booked this hotel a week before our huge weekend, the annual Catalina-Newport outrigger canoe race. I expected the worst given our timing and was really surprised how charming the hotel was and how spacious our room was. While others that weekend complained about their small rooms, we had two queen beds in space to put someone on the floor.... More

My husband and I just returned from our 4th stay here, and I can't wait to go back again. This time we chose Apartment 9, which has a wall of windows that allow for a wonderful afternoon breeze and a view of the ocean in the distance. On warmer days, a wall air conditioner and ceiling fan kept the room... More

I recently stayed at La Paloma Las Flores with my significant other. We ended up going with one of the apartments. It was amazing. It had a beautiful view of the island and beach. The apartment was so cozy and we never experienced any problems with noise. So peaceful and quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable, which surprised both of... More

I've stayed in many hotels over the years - most on business travel and others on vacations. This is near the bottom of the list of any that I've stayed at. The decor has lapsed - straight out of the 1970's. I wouldn't set foot in the whirlpool tub - I think my wife cringed at the thought that anyone... More

Our suite came with two separate rooms of good size, we had our own large private balcony with a great view.

We enjoyed two nights in Unit C at La Paloma Las Flores on Catalina. It was a lovely spot, very easy walking to all the great spots in Avalon, but not right in the middle of the action (which was perfect for us). Making our reservation was easy, as was check in and check out. The property is antiquated and... More

Cute spot, friendly staff... Would have given 5 stars except for the coffee in the room and the toilet that continued to run all night... Do not hesitate to stay here... We will surely stay here again!

Antonio and Esther run a wonderful hotel, a perfect Avalon place for families, singles, couples. Its vintage charm includes classic small cottages that string up the hill, a convenient walk from the harbor, the long, wisteria-covered trellis a great welcome. Some larger suites, facing the cottages and mostly rising higher, offer ace views of the town, hills and harbor (two... More
