Highly recommend this hotel! We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and customer service. Great experience. The room was clean, comfortable and the balcony overlooking the water is adorable! Can't wait to come back for another visit and will definitely stay here!

Love the view. The location is perfect. It's directly above Steve's Steakhouse (excellent restaurant) but there is no noise from the restaurant (the restaurant itself is noisy). -- Great view from the common area to the sea. It is up 2 flights of steps and there is no elevator. The staff will gladly help you with the luggage.

We have stayed at Vista Del Mar now for over 25 years. This hotel has always been fantastic in every way but the remodeling awhile back was even more beautiful. It is located in the center of everything with the green pier and great beach just a few feet away. We have always been treated by hotel employees as if... More

Enjoyed staying here Labor Day 2016. The ocean breeze into the hotel courtyard, the view of the bay, the proximity to all our activities, friendly staff and nice room. A bit small room but nicely decorated and came with a fridge and other nice amenities. Thank you for our anniversary weekend getaway.

We had booked a room for our upcoming wedding on Catalina Island for Sept of this year and my fiancee' called about securing travel (boat) tickets and the Vista Del Mar customer representative was so rude to her she was in tears. She wanted the ocean view suite which we had made reservations for. But if they treat the guest... More

Dear James, I apologize we were not able to meet your expectations. In looking at the guest notes I see that your reservation was confirmed for the Ocean View Suite. Your fiance called and requested we include in the rate paid a discount on the reservation and round trip boat tickets. We explained to her we could not include that... More

Absolutely lovely staff. The best view of any hotel there….stunning. We so love this hotel and will be back. Very European and old world but totally up to date in conveniences. However, know that there is no elevator or wheel chair access. It is like a charming Italian hotel on an upper floor with a long atrium and beautiful ocean... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at vista del mar very much, we loved how quiet & relaxing the environments felt at all times. Rooms were kept very clean as well as the rest of the hotel including the outside. Although you don't get much of a view from inside your room except for a window which faces the... More

How refreshing to find everything exactly as described and better than pictured online! The hotel is a charming hidden gem. I say hidden because although it is directly on the main street overlooking the ocean, you can miss the entrance to the second floor lobby if you walk by too quickly. We were warned ahead of time that there is... More

Location is perfect. Rooms, amenities and view are exactly as pictured and described online. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. It's the only hotel to stay at in Avalon as far as I'm concerned!
