We booked a room about half way up next to the bar and restaurant. Amazing views of the bay from our room, Sunset Bar and restaurant. Nice private palapa beach area...

Best Sunset Bar coupled with the Best Beach on the Pacific Ocean and an old world Hotel close to a cute Mexican Town, make up for the overall minimal comfort of the Catalina.

We stayed here in October 2015, it was a nice hotel. I believe we stayed in one of the bungalows, it had a huge balcony with a hammock and some lounge chairs. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but overall we enjoyed the room pretty spacious for my wife and I. There are a lot of stairs, no elevators, from...

Spent about ten days here in a suite on the top level. Classic resort stair stepped down the hillside. Stucco and tile interior, private deck with hammock, love seat and chairs. Restaurant, pool, lounge and beach bar onsite. Lush flowers and trees ... Breakfast included in daily rate. Only complaint was the walk down the steps to get to the...

Great spot on the best beach in Zihua. Perched on a cliff - the Hotel is older and a bit rough around the edges but comfy, clean and like living in a tree house overlooking the beach. The Bungalows and Linda Vista rooms are worth the extra money. Very nice and helpful people at the desk - we will definitely...

We stayed two weeks at Catalina in a Lindavista Suite. Quite possibly one of the top 3 rooms and hotels we have stayed at. The staff were friendly, helpful with suggestions and always responsive to any request we made without being over the top!
