My husband and I wanted a little weekend getaway. We chose Catalina Island to go and play. I searched the Internet for a hotel, and the pictures of La Paloma Cottages caught my eye. After reading a few reviews I realized this was the place I wanted to be. It is true that not all of the rooms have an "ocean view", so to speak, and that you may have to share a balcony. If the ocean view and private balcony is very important to you, as it was to us, you want Room# 16. It's at the very top, lots of stairs to climb (65 to be exact, my husband's idea to count them :) .......) but, so worth it! It was not easy for us to get this room. We made reservations 6mths ahead, and it was already booked (or they were saving it for a return guest). I had them put us on a waiting list for this room & called monthly....I felt like I was on a 1st name basis with Tony & his wife Esther (a lovely couple) by the time they gave me the room a couple weeks before we were to arrive. Anyway, if you're looking for a 5 star hotel....this is not the place for you. The structure is old, the floors a little creeky, everything works though and the atmosphere is well worth it. We can't wait to return.........Happy hotel hunting :)
