If you are in good condition and able to drag your luggage up and down steps to get to your room this is a hotel for you! Parking is very far, the hotel is on a hill and don't have elevators. On the bright side the rooms are very spacious, we have a big balcony with s hammock and the... More

We stayed here in October 2015, it was a nice hotel. I believe we stayed in one of the bungalows, it had a huge balcony with a hammock and some lounge chairs. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but overall we enjoyed the room pretty spacious for my wife and I. There are a lot of stairs, no elevators, from... More

Spent about ten days here in a suite on the top level. Classic resort stair stepped down the hillside. Stucco and tile interior, private deck with hammock, love seat and chairs. Restaurant, pool, lounge and beach bar onsite. Lush flowers and trees ... Breakfast included in daily rate. Only complaint was the walk down the steps to get to the... More

Great spot on the best beach in Zihua. Perched on a cliff - the Hotel is older and a bit rough around the edges but comfy, clean and like living in a tree house overlooking the beach. The Bungalows and Linda Vista rooms are worth the extra money. Very nice and helpful people at the desk - we will definitely... More

This is our third time staying at Catalina and we absolutely love it. It has an unmatched location on La Ropa Beach and great views of the bay. The staff is very helpful and responsive, the palapas and beach loungers are great, the rooms are spacious and clean and diid I mention the views? I gave this a four star... More

We stayed two weeks at Catalina in a Lindavista Suite. Quite possibly one of the top 3 rooms and hotels we have stayed at. The staff were friendly, helpful with suggestions and always responsive to any request we made without being over the top! Our day started looking out over the Bay, with a room wide patio open door and... More

We loved our 10 day stay - perfect weather and great accommodations. We stayed in an older casita, which lacked some charm, but the huge deck with hammocks and gorgeous Playa la Ropa views made up for it.

Our experience at Catalina Beach Resort was a good one. The two main things to know are: 1) It is a wonderful hotel in a great location and 2) There are tons of stairs and no elevator. If like walking on the beach, the stairs are no big deal. The quaintness of the hotel and its friendly staff will win... More

We had a fabulous 10-day stay at the Hotel Catalina in January. There is so much character and charm throughout the property. The views from the room, sunset bar, Linda Vista restaurant and pool are outstanding. The location was perfect for exploring Playa la Ropa during the day and taxi or walk to town in the evening. The food on... More

The lobby of this hotel is nice enough, but the rooms that we and our friends stayed in were dingy and depressing. There wasn't even a dresser in the junior suite and the pillows were lumpy and uncomfortable. The mattress was fine and the linens were clean.The walkout from our room to the roof was decrepit and dangerous, with no... More
