we just came back from our stay at the catalina.
the hotel has some problems, probably due to poor management.
we didnt have enough towels.
the complimentary happy hour drinks it was only for two drinks per person per day from 7 to 8 pm (not beer included and not premium liquour of course). the free hot dogs at the pool were terrible although the cook was very nice (from 12 to 2 pm). the alcohol avaliable at the bar was very poor quality.
one of the bartenders?? (the skinny girl i think she is from italy) was rude and she didnt know how to fix a rum runner (the other bartender told us later that we couldnt get that drink anyways because they didnt have the ingredients).
the complimentary breakfast was limited to some bad coffee, some juices and some type of mini croissants.
they say is free but they put the jar of tips in front of you which means if you dont tip you will get [-] service next time...
the helpers were nice and helpful like one of the ladies at the front desk (renee).
she recommended us a tour of the city which we enjoyed it.
the shuttle works (thanks god).
i didnt hear a lots of noises like i read in some reviews.
the location is very good, very close to the beach.
overall is if you dont wanna spend a lot of money book this hotel but remember you get what you pay for...
i dont know if i wanna come back.
i found the rooms nice but the maids needs to clean more.
at check out they charge 15 dollars in resort fees. the swimming pool is nice but they need to clean a little more the area.
