The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club is a cluster of three hotels, the Maxine, the Catalina, and the Dorset. They have a GREAT setup with each hotel having its own unique and different types of restaurants. You walk right through the restaurants to get to your room! You would think this were a burden, but it's actually very quaint and gives you a sense of "belonging". The staff is SUPER friendly, though it takes them a LLOONNGGG time to get your room cleaned! Our delightful room was somewhat dark, despite having windows on 2 walls (but we faced the alleyways). We are STILL perplexed as to WHY there was an electrical outlet on the ceiling ~hhhmmm~. They have nightly FREE OPEN BAR for guests, hence, their motto. BIG UPS TO LEVANT, our wonderful bartender in the Kung Fu kitchen & sushi for his tasty libations. Oh, and the rooftop pool is a MECCA for sun worshipers! Just get there EARLY to get a day bed on the sunny side of the deck. Even BIGGER UPS to Keith, the rooftop bartender, for making it his one and sole goal to make sure we had a GOOD TIME! He always greeted us with a smile and "bro hug" and just made us feel welcomed. THANK YOU!

Thank you for taking your time to post your honest feedback on Trip Advisor for all of our future guests to read! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and found our staff to be super friendly! I apologize that your room took a little long to get cleaned! You were able to take advantage of our cocktail hour at Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi. Levent is a wonderful bartender and all of our guests have nothing but great things to say about him! I will let him know of your kind praise! :) The rooftop pool is a mecca for sun worshipers! :) It's also a great spot to watch the sunrise or sunset! Very romantic up there at those hours! I also see that you were tended on by Keith on the rooftop. Keith loves to give "bro hugs" and make you feel very welcomed! He's wonderful!
We hope you come back soon!
