I was so pleased with the professionalism of Catalina Sea Spa. From Star, who took my appointment to Ruthie, who was a wonderful masseuse. She listened to my concerns of where I wanted her to concentrate and she focused on those areas. She truly cared about me feeling better and having a great experience. The ambiance of the spa was...

I had the best massage ever! I really wanted a relaxing massage and that's exactly what I got! Lily, my masseuse, was awesome!! She seemed really experience, great pressure, and nice flow! The place was simple, clean, and professional! I got the Goddess package, minus the scrub (since I wanted a more relaxing experience), and simply got an 80 min... More

My sister and I decided to have a massage at the last minute. Start and Lily squeezed us into their schedule for an evening appointment. They were both wonderful and we left Catalina feeling very relaxed. We hope to visit them again!

My in suite massage was one of the best I've ever had. Such a delightful masseuse. Would definitely use Catalina Sea Spa again!

Catalina Sea Spa was very professional, clean and relaxing. Star was great, she definitely made sure I was comfortable during my massage being 23 weeks pregnant, she was very accommodating. I can't wait for my next appointment!

This place is very small, and is not quite what I would call a spa, more of a massage parlor with 4 rooms. But the massage was great, and the staff and masseuses are very friendly.

This is NOT a spa. I brought my daughter to the island for her birthday and included a few hours for a nice spa experience. Their ad in the Coronado Chamber online says its rated most beautiful spa. No way. It had pretty good ratings otherwise, but I should have read the reviews thoroughly. This place is, actually, two massage... More

Hi Judy, Sounds like you were expecting something different than what the open spas in Catalina have to offer. In Avalon commercial space is extremely limited. So we all (hotels, restaurants, spas) try to make our small spaces as beautiful and comfortable as possible. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your massage services. This is why we... More

Let's be clear, this is not a spa. It's two rooms and a bathroom on the 2nd floor of a building/garage. My mom booked us a "spa day" here for my birthday on a day trip from San Diego - a 90 min experience that included a massage, sugar scrub, and peppermint oil scalp massage. As this place advertises itself... More
