I found this charming hotel on a website dedicated to lodging and restaurants on Catalina Island. After combing through several other hotels & reviews, I came across Vista Del Mar (VDM) and their fall special. I promptly booked a room for two nights for our wedding anniversary and completely surprised my wife. She couldn't believe how nice the rooms were... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights a couple weeks ago and I have to say that upon arriving we were very reluctant about staying in the Ocean View Suite or the hotel in general because the prices seemed a little steep but once we arrived we got first class service. Our room wasn't ready due to check... More

The rooms are very well furnished, have fireplaces, wet bars, good beds and nice bathrooms. The staff is very friendly and the room rates are an excellent value for the island. The rate includes a...

We stayed at Hotel Vista Del Mar with friends who were visiting from out of state. It was nice to be in a central location but once up the stairs and inside the hotel we felt as though we were in a secluded spot away from any hustle and bustle down below. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms luxurious and... More

This was our first time staying overnight on Catalina Island. We certainly lucked out by booking the Vista Del Mar Hotel. Great room, great service and great location. The staff was very helpful getting us into our room early in the day so we could go off and explore the island right away. We will definitely be back again!

My husband and I went out to Catalina for a getaway last December and fell in love with Hotel Vista Del Mar. The rooms are cozy! Although they are small (some of them at least) they are beautifully decorated and so romantic. You have your own private fireplace and the beds are super comfortable. The staff was very sweet and...

My boyfriend and I just came back home from visiting Catalina Island and staying at the Hotel Vista Del Mar. We loved it!
