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

Maybe I read too many bad reviews from here before I left for my trip to Catalina. Having to read all the horrible review after booking the vacation package, I was terrified that this hotel might ruin my romantic 3days getaway to Miami. However, most of the bad reviews posted previously did not apply to my trip. As soon as... More

I stayed at the Catalina this past weekend with a few friends for a girls weekend getaway. The service at this Hotel is terrible. Our A/C was not working and we complained a few times and no one did anything. They finally provided us with some cheap fan the day before we left. There were no dressers to put your... More

My flight was delayed - so I called the hotel and spoke to Diana who assured me they wouldn't give away my room becuase I would be late. Guess what! I arrived in South Beach at 4AM and they had given away my room! And it was paid in full for four nights! They tried to find me a room... More

Please do not stay here if you want a relaxing worry free vacation in South Beach unless you are an alcoholic or on drugs. It is the dirtiest hotel that I have ever stayed at in my life, pictures may look good on the website, and some of the reviews may be above average but do not believe any of... More
