The first night that me and my friends took a shower the red paint from the ceilings dripped in the bathroom as well as in the bedroom area, the pool boy chased us out of the hotel as if we were criminals whenn he made an era, and the hotel wrongfully charged my credit card after checkout. From the moment... More

I just got back from staying at the Catalina, and I have to warn anyone considering booking this hotel to stay away! I have never written a review on a hotel before, but I also have never experienced such terrible customer service. I checked into my room and a few hours later, as I was getting dressed, two French guys... More

Let me start off by saying this hotel has ruined my Miami experience. I am that person that always finds the silver lining in every cloud but this place makes it really hard to do so. I would like to start with saying something positive. The rooftop pool in there sister hotel, the Dorset, is the best thing they have... More

Two of my friends and I stayed at the Catalina Hotel & Beach Club for a week in August. We just got back & I usually do not write reviews. Needless to say, Catalina is a very rare exception therefore, here I am. My friends & I can't wait to return to South Beach & book Catalina. To say the... More

My friends and I stayed here for 5 days/ 4 nights earlier this month, and we truly enjoyed our stay. The facilities were well kept and modern, and the convenience of the hotel's location made it ideal (one block away from the beach and two blocks from Lincoln Road). The staff of the hotel was probably the best aspect of... More

The hotel itself was okay, nothing great but nice location. The front desk staff was pretty rude, but I can handle that since I rarely had to deal with them. When the toilet didn't work in our room, they sent maintenance but he was incredibly rude. Many reviews complain about noise but we stayed on the first floor and I... More

Stayed one night here (thankfully only one) after a cruise. What a disappointment! Found the check-in staff snobby and one guy was just plain rude when we kindly asked for a one-hour extension on check-out and he said "no". The rooms were loud, thanks to thin walls. You could hear every person going down the hallway. I woke up at... More

I read several reviews on this hotel prior to my trip, some were good, and some were not so good...so I was apprehensive about the stay. This was for a girls weekend before our cruise (3 girls in late 30's). Check in was great, very smooth. We took our bags to our room and were back down for the free... More

This hotel is a joke. Plain and simple a joke. The shuttle that picks you up at the airport was late, you call the hotel desk and they have no clue where the driver is. How convienent ay? Once the shuttle did come pick us up it was hard to tell what bus was ours because it says really small... More

We were looking for a short "staycation", so when the $59/night offer came in from Travelzoo, we jumped on it. Only then did we check out the reviews here, which we nearly always do before we book. The 3 night stay was non-refundable, so after reading all the negative reviews, we figured if it was that terrible, we'd just walk... More
