It's the place with the most beautiful views in Catalina! The room was beautiful and the staff was very friendly! I could have stayed on that balcony forever! Couldn't ask for more, our place to go to from now on!

We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Relaxing!! The staff were so warm and friendly. When we entered our room the fireplace was on and soft music was playing. Made for a cozy feeling. The courtyard was filled with beautiful plants and the views from the breakfast/cookie area was amazing. The bed, a pillow-top, was one of the most comfortable...

For over 25 years it's been my favorite place to stay on the island. There are two suites which face the water (pictured) and they are amazing. Others are down a long hallway (like a sunroom) and are beautifully appointed... fireplaces, nice modern bathrooms. Terrific for anniversary or romantic getaway. It's very convenient to the ferry landing... a short walk,...

We stayed in the ocean front suite for our 2nd wedding anniversary and we could not have been happier! Amazing view! And the room was spectacular - fireplace, Jacuzzi bathtub for two, linens and towels were top quality. Will absolutely stay here again!

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Vista Del Mar. Perfect location, cozy room, and best of all, incredible service. From the moment we checked in, Josh was so helpful taking our luggage and helping us to plan our day. Once we got to our room, there were balloons, a bottle of wine, and a birthday card for my boyfriend....

This facility far exceeded our expectations. We were in room 101. Private Balcony. Fireplace. Jacuzzi tub. Luxurious bedding. Cozy seating in our room and like I said, out on our balcony. This stay could not have been better. The people that work there are delightful. All the way to the beautiful tropical fish tank to DVD's we borrowed. The breakfasts....

The location couldn't be better for visiting on foot, centrally located. The room was immaculate and elegantly designed. Small detail like a personalized card in the room welcoming you was an unexpected but delightful touch. The staff were all personable and very helpful. An outstanding experience!
