Catalina Resort
Reviewed October 1, 2012

we recently stayed at catalina resort tower two with our 2 teenage children and my mother in law.
we stayed in a 3 bedroom ground floor unit and it was brilliant. my mother in law had easy access to the pool and a short walk across to the beach. our 2 boys could come and go as they pleased through the back door which opened onto a small patio area. very clean and comfortable.
we would happily stay again.

This is our tenth visit to the Catalina. What draws us each time are the views, the scenary and the variety of activities within close proximity. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and have every available thing you will need for your stay. It has kitchen facilities however who would want to cook when you can order in or, stroll down to any of the many local cuisines. The hotel is very central to everything. They have beautiful bbq and pool area and the beach is a stones throw away. Awesome place for families or couples alike. We will be back soon so always leave a spot open for us!

Room Tip: The higher the better!

Very nice accomodation. Very neatly priced, in my opinion it's a steal. Very nicely positioned right on the beach at the surf club. Very clean and comfortable with magnificent ocean views that go on forever. Great parking and very secure.
5 Star at a 3 star price.
Awsome.

We recently stayed at the Catalina Resort for a surprise weekend away for my husband's birthday. We had an absolutely fantastic time! We stayed on level 14 in Catalina 2 in a 2 bedroom apartment. The 2 bathrooms were huge! It was so spacious and accommodated our family perfectly. The room was beautifully set out and the views were amazing! The kids had a great time between playing tennis, going in the 2 pools and 2 spas and using the games room. The location of the resort is perfect with the patrolled beach directly across the one way quiet street and the private walkway is so handy especially with kids. The surf club is close by and there are takeaways and restaurants all within a very short walking distance. Our car stayed safely in the secure underground carpark for the 2 days, we only needed it when we had to leave. I would like to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU TO WENDY for organising the room we stayed in, it was the PERFECT SURPRISE for my husband's birthday. Everything was just perfect only wish we could have stayed longer, it was really hard to leave. We all had a very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable time. We will definitely be back. We would highly recommend this resort to families or couples looking for the perfect holiday! It was also very affordable and value for money. Thanks again!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed on level 14 with ocean views and it was just perfect.

My family and I recently stayed at the Catalina for the second time. It is by the far the best position for a quiet weekend away. The staff are lovely and welcoming, our room was perfect, the position is the best. The beach is just across the road which is a one way quiet road, the surf club is very close and cotton tree shopping area and markets are just a short walk. Thankyou so much again and we will be back for the third time soon. Highly recommended.

Stayed at Catalina Resort while attending a family re-union on the SUnshine Coast. Great location, great panoramic views of the ocean, clean rooms, two bathrooms - everything we needed. Beach just across the road, and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Staff were friendly and a great stay was had by all. We'd certainly recommend this resort to our friends and others. We'll be back again.

Room Tip: We were on a high floor on the south facing the beach - couldn't fault it!

Five Girlfriends went up for 3 night stay early September 2012. We all had a wounderful time. The weather was great. The Views from our balcony were fantasic. We had a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom unit on the 10th floor. Great to have 4 singles beds and one Queen all were very comfortable having a bed each doesnt happen often. The unit was clean and spacious with all needs attended for. The Staff at the front deck were very friendly and helpful when one of our friends got sick. We Thank them all very much for their help. Catalina is close to Resturants, Surf Club, Shops all in walking distance. The Beach just across the road. We recommend this Resort to everyone.

Room Tip: Great views from the 10th floor upwards
