The hotel is wonderful, it is very clean, extremely cozy, rooms are modern, stylish and have a fire place. The hotel staff is so sweet and pleasant. Cookies in the evening are a hit and movies available to guests- a nice touch

I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Vista del Mar recently when my boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary by taking a trip to Catalina. I read several reviews of other hotels before settling on this one, as I was hoping for something unique yet intimate, that offered special amenities that other hotels didn't.

My wife and I spent a weekend in Catalina, We stayed at the Hotel Vista del Mar. It is walking distance from the ferry pier. The entrance is small and you need to watch for it. The hotel is on the second floor. But it is a wonderful surprise. The rooms are beautifully renovated and furnished with a gas fireplace....

We visited Catalina Island for the first time last June and we wanted a romantic centrally located hotel, and this hotel it it! Our room was amazing, we were greeted with chilled champagne and by friendly staff. With the hotel only having a couple rooms, it was quiet and peaceful. The staff helped my then boyfriend plan a perfect romantic...

We stayed one night at the Hotel Vista Del Mar and it was a great experience. Service was phenomenal, from the reservations, to check-in through check –out all staff were courteous and cordial. Made us feel very welcome. The hotel is located centrally, on the main drag of Avalon. The beach is just across the street and the Green Pier...

Our room was so comfortable and relaxing, the fireplace and the milk and cookies were wonderful as well as the friendly staff. The bed was comfortable and the linens were inviting. We enjoyed the view of the beach and the plants in the common area. The front desk helped us with restaurant recommendations, umbrellas for the rain, and were always...
