On April 8-10 we took our first family trip to Catalina Island. Hotel Check-in time was at 3pm but we decided to take the ferry that arrived at 11:15. It was about a 10 min walk from the ferry to the hotel. We went to drop off our luggage so they could hold it for us but there was no need because our room was ready for us, WOW!!! We all loved the cozy, clean and beautiful deluxe room we stayed in. This hotel has you covered even to the smallest details that you won't find in other hotels. The cookies and milk offered at night were a wonderful touch and a delicious treat that we enjoyed. We also took advantage of their DVD library offered at no extra charge. The view from the balcony is Amazing! Hotel Vista del Mar is a few steps away from the beach, the green pier, restaurants and stores. Now, the staff is super nice and helpful, they rapidly attended every request we had, thank you all. A special thanks to Mr. Juan for answering every single question that I had (which were a ton) during our family reservation :) We most definitely will stay in this hotel again and again.... and again.
