Amazing place to stay... right in the heart of Catalina... friendly staff... I have stayed multiple times and will continue to go back... the Descanso Suite was great... the balcony was my favorite place to relax!

Well, I must admit I was a little surprised to find this little gem of a hotel. As others have stated, they have a complimentary breakfast, evening wine and cheese reception (quality cheese and wine for complimentary reception), fire pit, and a nice center garden area with lounge chairs. The rooms are clean and fine, but I'm giving them a...

The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because the bedroom and the bathroom need a little TLC. It is a little tired on the inside. The grounds are beautiful. The people that work there are very friendly and very nice. There is a free breakfast and there is wine and cheese at night. It was very lovely...

They had a nice breakfast and wine and cheese in the evening. Loved chatting with people around the fire pit. The hotel has a great location and lush garden. We actually couldn't get the...

What a marvelous, restful time-out over on Catalina! The hotel staff is amazing and this was the best wine & cheese offering we've experienced. They vary the wines and serve only select gourmet cheeses. The whole experience left us rested and pampered. I can't wait for my kids & grandson to come back over with me for the zip-living, paddle-boarding,...

We stayed at The Pavilion last weekend and were very pleased with the accommodations that included free wifi, a nice hot breakfast buffet and a wine and cheese hour each day with our stay. You will not find a 4 star property on the island. I was a little concerned with the outdoor entrances to each room. However, this is...

The Pavillion is a wonderful place to stay and experience Avalon. The location is ideal, a short walk to the ferry dock and close to shops, restaurants, and directly in front of a nice little beach. The hotel grounds are so pretty and tropical - lots of flowers and plants and impeccably maintained. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the...

First of all, location was right in front of the beach and it was wonderful! Just a short walk from the dock and we found the hotel right away. Our room was a premier king & the bed was absolutely heavenly - very comfortable I didn't want to go out anymore! :-) The room was somehow small but for a...
