We just got back from a few days at La Paloma Las Flores, family of 3. Stayed in Cottage #4. We loved the place! The place has lots of character, perfect for a family trip. We specifically booked the cottage because it had a kitchen so we could eat in some nights. The location can't be beat, 2 blocks or so to the beach in Avalon Bay and the main street with shops and restaurants on Crescent Ave, but hidden away on a side street so you don't hear the noisy golf carts. There's a Vons supermarket down the street from La Paloma so you can pick up groceries and anything else you need for your trip. They have 2 barbeque grills setup for you to use, lots of outdoor seating in small alcoves here and there throughout the complex. It really is a beautiful place to hangout. The cottages are older, but they had newer rooms in the Las Flores section and the upper apartments have a view. They have free wifi, but we planned to unplug this vacation so we didn't need to use it. My Sprint phone had fine reception in this area, no phone in the room.
The cottage is basic, we didn't spend a lot of time indoors so it was more than enough. One double bed and 2 trundles. The kitchen had stove, oven, large sink, dishes, plates, and eating utensils, and a small fridge. The bathroom is separate from the shower stall. i can see it might get a little chilly in the winter, but in the summer it felt cool and comfortable. The day we checked-out they kept our bags for us until it was time to board the ferry. They every have showers and bathroom outside that we could've used if we had gone swimming that day.
The staff here are excellent folks. Esther at the front was very helpful and friendly. Tony was great, up and about from early morning until night, wonderful smile and a friendly hello every time he sees you.
Next visit to Catalina we'll book at La Paloma again, maybe one of the larger rooms just so we can spread out a little more.
