The room was very nice all modern and totally updated with a great shower and of course the wonderful romantic fireplace. Room lacked towel bars every where and if you are not good with stairs its not for you. It is 2 flights up and you have to carry your own heavy suitcases all the way up. Very clean and...

I loved this place. So close to everything! And the staff is really accommodating and friendly. The room was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. It was also quiet, even when the hotel was full. The lobby has a very tropical feel to it and has an open air sitting space overlooking the beach. We didn't have an ocean...

The details in the room are notable, fire place, comfortable seating and bed. No detail has been spared. Updated flat screen television with endless stations. Pleasant and respectful personnel. Would recommend to all.

We were very happy with our stay at the Hotel Vista Del Mar. The location is great - waterfront, in the middle of the 'action' of town (and by that I mean the handful of restaurants and shops that make up this quaint, seaside village!), and the staff was very friendly. We loved sitting at the lobby balcony to enjoy...

Vacation every year in Catalina for a week, and we have stayed at many of the hotels, and Hotel Vista Del Mar is our favorite. The location is perfect right in the heart of downtown. Yet the rooms are very quiet and serene. Kip made our stay very special and was so friendly. Love the cookies and milk at night!...

We have stayed here several times now and it's always so friendly and welcoming. With only 14 rooms you get a cozy boutique kind of feel. It is always clean and comfortable right in the heart of town literally steps to the Green Pier and the best restaurants. We love sitting at the east end of the courtyard that opens...

What is referred to as a "courtyard", is in actuality the hotel's covered hallway, decorated with plants, with room doors and room windows on both sides. The ONLY windows in these "courtyard" rooms face this hallway (and the windows of the room across the hall), thus no in-room privacy unless the window blinds are closed. Too much money for a...

Dear pamela78641: Thank you for the kind comments that are rooms are “well appointed" and our location is “undeniably convenient”. I’m sorry you felt our atrium courtyard did not give you the privacy you needed. We really feel our courtyard is a little oasis hidden from the rest of the world for only our guests to enjoy. The glass topped...

The room was very nice and clean. It has complimentary breakfast. Pricey but its worth it, accessible to restaurants and shops. I love the service and the staffs who are working there. They are polite and friendly. Excellent service! Kip was the manager, he was very friendly and helpful with all the guests. Awesome Hotel and View!

We are so grateful to have stayed here. We had a fabulous stay!!! Our host, Kip, was so friendly, helpful, and we could've sat there and chatted with him for hours. He was exceptional at customer service. The room was clean, private, with a bottle of wine and balloons. The bed was super comfortable and the room was well stocked...
