    We had a very nice experience for our first stay in Catalina. The people were very nice and friendly. Not sure why there wasn't a phone in the room though, but that was ok. We stayed in the ocean view king room overlooking the boardwalk....More

    Does this hotel have a pool?

    We are located directly on the beach. Our building covers our entire property so we do not have a pool.

    When booking for my birthday and the 10% discount, it says to 'book through the hotel'. Do you mean through your website, as there isn't a 'birthday' code to enter? Or do I just book it through your website, and when checking-in I will be given the discount?

    Response from HotelMacRae | Property representative |
    We can give you your 10% birthday discount on the phone or we can give you a refund for your discount upon arrival if you book your reservation online.
