This facility far exceeded our expectations. We were in room 101. Private Balcony. Fireplace. Jacuzzi tub. Luxurious bedding. Cozy seating in our room and like I said, out on our balcony. This stay could not have been better. The people that work there are delightful. All the way to the beautiful tropical fish tank to DVD's we borrowed. The breakfasts....

The location couldn't be better for visiting on foot, centrally located. The room was immaculate and elegantly designed. Small detail like a personalized card in the room welcoming you was an unexpected but delightful touch. The staff were all personable and very helpful. An outstanding experience!

I have stayed at different places in Avalon in the past, but from now on I will be staying at the Hotel Vista Del Mar. It was the best maintained and well appointed hotel I have stay at in Avalon. The staff was very welcoming and the view from the hotel is amazing. The bedding is so comfortable you just...

The island is so nice in the winter time. We went over on Friday and returned on Sunday. The hotel was absolutely lovely! We arrived in time for the evening fresh baked cookies and milk that they put out every night. One of the perks of staying at this hotel in the winter is all the rooms have cozy fireplaces...

The rooms and property were well kept and clean. The bed was comfortable and the amenities were nice. These are all things that I have come to expect from a great hotel such as Vista Del Mar. The included continental breakfast was the typical pastry, bagels, cereal and coffee. The front desk service was exceptional, friendly, knowledgable and ensured a...

My friends and I had a wonderful time at this hotel. The staff did a wonderful job making you feel welcome. We had an ocean view room which I highly recommend. You can relax on your balcony and just watch everything going on below.

This by far was a great experience! The hotel was there ready to help with anything. Beautiful room and very comfy bed. Made you feel like it was home with beautiful views. It rained when I went and the hotel provided us with large umbrellas so we could still go out and shop along the strip. The continental breakfast was...

Love love love! The perfect location on Avalon with an idyllic view. Steps from the local tiki bar. And a quick bag drag from the port. So thrilled to have spent my birthday weekend getaway in such a charming spot. Huge win for the husband!

This was an exceptionally well-appointed room, with a love seat, chair, flat screen, refrigerator, robes, bath products, etc. All of the accoutrements were of higher quality than you might expect in a tourist town. The rooms are smaller in size than a standard hotel room, but felt quite comfortable (not squeezed into a closet like NYC, for example.) We arrived...

My wife and I were blown away by Hotel Vista Del Mar on our recent stay. It really is just the third floor of a building of restaurants on the main drag in Catalina, but they make the most of the space they have. The open-air lobby is breathtaking. They have all the right thoughtful amenities, like chocolates and turn...
