Catalina Hotel & Beach Club

Reviewed June 16, 2014

The hotel is in a great location within walking distance of South Beach and Ocean Drive where are the bars and clubs are.

The rooms themselves are small but chic, as with the decor throughout the hotel.

Definitely check out the live music in the foyer and happy hour at the bar. Also there is a nice rooftop pool next door which is a good tip to visit.

Good Afternoon gazpott,

We appreciate the time you took to share your feedback with us, and our future guests! We are located in the heart of South Beach, just blocks from all the action. We are indeed a boutique hotel therefore our rooms are a bit smaller then your average hotel rooms. We have rooms that are more spacious for those guests who need something bigger. Our Living Large room is 245 sq ft, and our El Grande room is 280 sq ft. Please come back again soon!

I have to admit that I don't often write reviews but after my experience at the Catalina Hotel &Beach Club, I just had to. The staff here were super sweet and fun.!!! I found myself enjoying happy hour and connect four in the lobby more than going out to Ocean Drive!!!! Moses, Johnson, and Tyrell were sweethearts, although they never beat me in Connect Four! :-) The amenities that come with this hotel, (free airport shuttle, happy hour, beach towels and beach chairs) were great and the staff were always available to help and answer any questions. I loved the bamboo pool!!!!!!! Overall the staff and the vibe at Catalina made my trip worthwhile!!!

We had reservations at this Hotel on Memorial weekend. The hotel itself was beautiful. It looked like a nice entertaining hotel with a lot of amenities. However, it just wasn't our cup of tea to stay there that weekend. Juan Arias the front desk supervisor was extremely apologetic and accommodating to go stay at the Riviera South Beach Luxe Hotel (their sister hotel). It was less traffic and less hectic and drama. We wanted to thank him by writing this review. We appreciate it and the Riviera hotel was absolutely friendly and welcoming!

Hello maria K,

There is nothing that we love to read more then lovely 5 star feedback! Memorial Day Weekend is a fun filled time around here. There are so many events and things going on. I am sorry that it wasn't your cup of tea. Juan Arias our front desk manager is absolutely wonderful! He is always making sure that everyone is having a killer time, and that they are well taken care of! I am glad that he was able to make accommodations for you at our sister hotel, Riviera Suites. We hope that you would give us a try another time! We would love to have you!

I'm rather surprised by all the negative feedback this hotel has attracted; I was sent here by my company for two nights and I have to say my experience was nothing but positive. The courtesy shuttle was late, but only by 15 minutes so really not a big deal, and when i arrived everyone was super friendly. The room wasn't ready as I arrived 5 hours early, and after sitting at the bar with the very friendly staff, a room became available but it was an upgraded room, but they gave ti to me anyway. The room was great, wooden floor, great decal, chandelier and high ceilings. very retro. It was NOT expensive despite the upgrade and apart from one dude with slicked back ginger hair on the front desk who was a total tool (being very creepy and sleazy with a bunch of girls while I waited patiently) i will now always return to this hotel as I visit Miami often.

Room Tip: Don't go the very basic - choose a room in the right hand side building where Maxine's is

Our stay here was great because of the location but also because of the bartender they had. She was awesome! The other bartender during the day was not very friendly. I'm so glad that we had Chloe most of the time that we spent at the bar. She was so friendly and so professional all in one! :-) We really enjoyed her company 2 nights in a row before we checked out. Honestly, Chloe was the only employee there that was so friendly and helpful. The other employees should learn by her example.

Hey guys,

I usually don't write reviews, but when you have great service as Aron & Chris at the front desk you can't help it! They were very friendly and helpful during my check in earlier today! I appreciate smile when I walk up from a hectic flight.

My room wasn't quite ready at 2:30PM since check in isn't until 3PM. I walked up at 2:55PM to inform them where I was waiting. Aron called up to make sure and then less than a minute later I was off to my nice upgraded room! They offered to take my bag up, but I only had 1 and they looked busy so I took it up myself.

Plenty of towels in the room, which I hate calling down for, especially when I just get here!
