We were pleasantly surprised how easy of a walk it was from the Catalina Express. Upon entering the hotel we were warmly greeted and escorted to our room. Once in the beautiful room, the staff took the time to explain the features, gave us a welcome book with coupons and made sure we had no questions about what to do on the island. One of the things that exceeded our expectations was that beach towels and chairs were available at no additional cost. This was a huge bonus for my wife and I who flew in from out of state. Great location facing the harbor, beach out the front door, Steve's Steakhouse in the same building, activity pier directly out the front door, everything we needed. The milk & cookies, DVD library, breakfast, and fireplace were each nice added touches that contributed to an outstanding exprience! We couldn't have asked for more! Truly a hidden gem!
