First visit to Catalina and I am so glad that we stayed at The Pavilion. Catalina has lots of properties from which to choose and The Pavilion did not disappoint in any aspect. We booked a king superior room which was located on the ground level. All of the rooms open outside

This was a great overnight for us. Pavilion front desk was so accomodating when I requested a 1st floor room. It was tucked among the lush tropical landscaping. The happy hour reception of wine and cheese had both high quality wines and cheeses which we enjoyed on very

Only stayed on the island for a night. The staff was super friendly, and even gave us a late checkout because we were at the spa. The front desk was very knowledgeable on all the island activities. Make sure to get the cheese and wine!!! They have a lot of complementary things

We do provide beach towels for you to take to the beach. Memorial Day weekend is fairly busy, and if you are staying over that weekend, we do recommend putting your towel out early. Otherwise, you should be fine. See you soon!

Haven't tried the Romance Package myself. Catalina Island is a beautiful spot to wander and explore and very picturesque. A helicopter tour would certainly be worthwhile and the views would be amazing. The picnic basket too sounds like a great way to enjoy the island romance. Of course the Pavillion Hotel is in the heart of the action and close to the ferry terminal and a great spot to stay with wine tasting evenings and light breakfast provided in good surroundings. My advice is to check the price of doing the deals with and without the package as all this is available while on the island - if it is a good deal then go for it! Also there are many spas in Avalon, this could be a romantic way to send a few hours! Have a great stay.

"Our room was on the lower floor, so there wasn't much natural light. If you want something bright, request the second floor!"
"The rooms on the ground floor are right by a beautiful garden area with lounge chairs to relax in."
"Avoid rooms near the alley"
"They have rooms with Ocean views as well,which we couldnot get due to non avaibility,but it can be checked out a well."
"Second floor was great and less busy"
