My husband and I spent 3 nights on Catalina Island at the Vista Del Mar and I would definitely stay here again!! The hotel is very nice! The rooms and service is 4 star quality for sure! We loved our room and the hotel floor was nice and quiet. The staff was very attentive and helpful. We loved that they have movies you can borrow and watch on the DVD player in your room - they had brand new releases this was great for the windy/cloudy day or late at night. They also offer a complimentary continental breakfast in the morning and warm chocolate chip cookies with milk every night : ) The hotel is centrally located in a great spot and has some great restaurant and shops just downstairs. The only thing to note, you do have to walk up 2 sets of stairs (no elevator) this was not a problem for us but I wanted to note it for others. Prior to our trip I also reserached the Pavilion Hotel and Snug Harbor. From walking by them they also look like great hotel options BUT the rooms at Vista Del Mar were definitely nicer than the Pavilion and I liked the location and balcony view that you get here from the lobby over that at the Snug Harbor Inn - but possibly both great other options.
