My wife and I stayed here for two nights for our one year anniversary and couldn't ask for better customer service from Yoli and Levin! The hotel is a nicely designed, comfortable, boutique style hotel just outside the loudness of the main drag on Avalon, and the management was very personable our entire stay. All was good upon checkin until... More

Picked at whim on short notice (just 2 weeks ahead in June) we walked up to it on Metropole Street from along the waterfront from the Catalina Flyer landing in Avalon. Very nice decor. great king bed and a georgous sink embedded in a dark mahogany dresser. But minus a star for the smallest toilets I've ever seen, or sat... More

My family and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel. The rooms were small but clean. This hotel is three stories with no elevator. It is one block off the Main Street so it is quiet. They are building a new museum next door so future visits will make this hotel an even better location. Staff was friendly and helpful.... More

I stayed at Casa Mariquita long ago when they first opened when I used to teach diving there. Back then they didn't have online reviews or online booking -yes that dates me but regardless I loved that it was not on the main street but still easy walking distance from the beach-yes a bit of a hill but nothing tough,...

The best part of the hotel was the willingness of the staff to help any way they could. Four floors and no elev\ator. Lots of steps to climb. Room had an ocean view. Rooms were small. TV was obstructed by the foot of the bed making it hard to see all of the picture.

As described by my title our favorite aspect of Casa Mariquita is that they allow you to book a one night stay on a Saturday in June when almost every other property on the island requires a two night minimum. As a couple with three young children who come to the island every year for our anniversary, we are not... More

My husband, daughter, and I stayed at Casa Mariquita for two days. When we arrived the young girl at the front desk Jasleen, I believe, was very kind and welcoming. She held our luggage for three hours before check in time at no cost. The rooms were very clean, the decor pleasant, plenty of towels considering the water shortage, a... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for our anniversary. Hotel staffs are nice and friendly. Free breakfast is good. The room is just perfect and comfy for the 2 of us. It's a few minutes walk from the main street. I would recommend and come back to this place.

The room had a balcony and king size bed. It was spacious and well stocked with coffee and tea. I would recommend this to anyone staying on the island. This... More

My wife and I stayed at Casa Mariquita April 16-17 and were quite pleased with the room. It was on the second floor, spacious and comfortable. It's a short walk to the hotel up a slight slope fron the Main Street, but we had a single "carry on" bag so we managed the walk quite easily. The staff were friendly... More
