“Best Place to Stay on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Upon doing research of where we wanted to stay while on the island, I am more than happy we chose this hotel. It's central location and more than friendly staff makes this a top-notch island hotel. Rooms are very quiet and secluded from the rest of the island's mix of tourism. The standard rooms are just right for couples. The breakfast and cookies are fantastic! Staff is more than helpful with restaurant choices and excursion insight. Also, it is really cool that they will store your luggage pre/post check-out to accommodate your needs. They supply beach towels and chairs so you don't have to worry about bringing your own. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The staff will set cookies and milk in your room if you are going to be gone at the time they put th...

Our room was very cute and clean. The bed was comfy and the fireplace made it very cozy. Not a lot of extra room with one child in the pullout bed. Milk and cookies at night and DVD library were nice touches.

We stayed at Hotel Vista Del Mar for one night this spring, and we had an excellent experience. The room was great, the location was unbeatable, and the service was superb!! The gentleman at the front desk was very accommodating and quite knowledgable about the area. He was exceptionally helpful throughout our stay. We cannot wait to come back.

On April 8-10 we took our first family trip to Catalina Island. Hotel Check-in time was at 3pm but we decided to take the ferry that arrived at 11:15. It was about a 10 min walk from the ferry to the hotel. We went to drop off our luggage so they could hold it for us but there was no need because our room was ready for us, WOW!!! We all loved the cozy, clean and beautiful deluxe room we stayed in. This hotel has you covered even to the smallest details that you won't find in other hotels. The cookies and milk offered at night were a wonderful touch and a delicious treat that we enjoyed. We also took advantage of their DVD library offered at no extra charge. The view from the balcony is Amazing! Hotel Vista del Mar is a few steps away from the beach, the green pier, restaurants and stores. Now, the staff is super nice and helpful, they rapidly attended every request we had, thank you all. A special thanks to Mr. Juan for answering every single question that I had (which were a ton) during our family reservation :) We most definitely will stay in this hotel again and again.... and again.

My husband and I went for the first time to Catalina Island together this past weekend. We stayed at Vista del Mar with our 8 month old baby. The room was beautiful and perfect for the baby. The room was clean and modern. We really took advantage of the bar area since it had a small sink, we were able to wash all my son's bottles and toys. They also provided a play yard which came out to be very useful. The staff was very friendly and provided excellent customer service. The only inconvenience we had was that the hotel is located on a third floor and there is no elevator. We had to go up and down the stairs quite a bit with the stroller. But that was part of the traveling experience in Catalina. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay in the future again.

I don't even know where to start!! When I paid for the hotel in advance I thought it was a bit pricey but once we got there totally worth it! The night Manager went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. ALL the staff treated us with the best service we have ever had at a hotel. If we ever go back and visit Catalina Island I know where we are staying.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful!

Lovely hotel, central to restaurants and shops. Nice clean room with fireplace, very cozy. A birthday treat for me from my husband. The hotel had a birthday surprise in the room at check-in.
Staff very courteous and helpful. Very nice, will definitely stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: I could imagine every room at this hotel was a good room. If you want a view of the ocean you may n...
