We recently returned from a 3-night stay at Hotel Vista Del Mar. This was our first time to spend the night on the island (my husband and I had visited it about 5 years ago with our two sons just for the day) so we didn't know what to expect or where to stay. We just needed to get away from work and relax. I found Hotel Vista Del Mar on Tripadvisor and loved the pictures and reviews so I booked it and hoped for the best. It was way better than we expected and definitely just what we needed. Our room was beautiful and spacious and so peaceful. We never heard any outside noise while in our room. We felt totally relaxed and at home. The staff were very nice and helpful. We had to check out before it was time to leave on the Catalina Express but they were happy to hold our luggage for us while we did some last minute touring and shopping. It is conveniently located on the main street through town facing the harbor. Easy walk from the Catalina Express landing and to all the shops and tour companies. There is also a great restaurant, Steve's Steakhouse, just below the hotel. (Ask for Johnny for your waiter) We loved our stay and we will definitely stay there again if we are ever blessed with another trip to beautiful Catalina Island!
