Beautiful location

When we arrived at Catalina Beach Resort we were given a complimentary upgrade to a Bungalow from a Standard room. It was spotlessly cleaned every day. The staff was helpful in planning tours, trips to town, logistics of taxis, etc. The breakfast was delicious and selected from a menu. Purified water and ice were plentiful. The views were stunning from our private porch and terrace. The beach was the best on La Ropa with large palapas, beach towels, safe surf for wading and swimming. Wifi was available in the dining room at no extra charge. Catalina would be a perfect place for a family --a relaxed, cozy atmosphere. There are lots of steps to navigate in the resort. Can't wait to go again!

Built in exercise program!

First time in a long time I've come home from vacation and actually lost weight instead of gaining! Lots of steps but you get used to them and it is definitely good to wear off all that good food and drink! Enjoyed our room, the pool and the restaurant and bar but the beach is what you go for - and Playa la Ropa is the most beautiful beach ever! Staff is courteous and helpful and always smiling of course!

Dining tip: In Hotel

Bring a small flashlight as the beach is dark at night - nice restaurants close by where you can sit with your feet in the sand....

Nice buy shoud have Ac

The location is wonderful the hotel in general is really nice the only problem was that there was not AC on the standard or small casitas. We were right on the beach, but for the same price I could of have stayed on the other side of the street on a room with AC. Too many steps, but well worth it to walk them since the food is delicious at the restaurant.

Don't get a casita

We needed a hotel to stay at one night before transferring on to the condo we were renting for the week. Upon arrival Catalina reminded me more of a youth hostel/pension than a hotel, and the small casita we rented was on the same level of quality. All the way down by the pool in room 13, we had two double beds, a fridge and a bathroom and ceiling fan... its classification should lay somewhere between rustic and dumpy, though I must admit it was clean. The bed was hard and equipped with two lumpy pillows. The restaurants, bar and beach area are all quite lovely and I'm sure if you upgraded to some of the higher quality rooms it would be quite nice, but I can't recommend staying in a small casita under any circumstance.

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

The sunset bar has 2/1 happy hours from 6-8. Their margaritas and mojitos were divine!

Mehhhhhhhh

The overall stay was not too bad. There were many areas where improvement was necessary. The hotel was also under construction and was in need of come general clean up outside. The beach was very nice not too crowded & had very few people selling stuff on the beach. But the AC didn't work well and made the nights hot & uncomfortable.
