Great 50th Birthday Vacation

Would recommend Fri, Aug 28, 2015
Short ride to the hotel. Check-in was easy. The front desk staff were very cordial and knowledgeable. Our room was nice. The bathroom was proportionate to the room size. It was adequate for our needs. Room service was quick to respond to our need for new towels we slept in and missed our room getting cleaned. The beds were so very comfy. The hotel location was good. We could walk to just about everything from the beach to mall area. They also provided shuttle service to nightlife venues in the area. The only downside was a leaky a/c unit, over priced mini bar/fridge and not knowing we had to reserve a shuttle seat back to the airport. As first time South Beach tourists the Catalina was a good choice for us.

Mothers Day Weekend

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 18, 2015
I decided to to something different for my mom on Mother's Day, I wanted something special but I was not happy with my overall experience at the Catalina. The Bamboo pool they advertise was always dirty and the rooftop pool was too little. The walking you had to do to get to each pool was ridiculous. Room service wasn't great. The bistro next door has good food..oh and lots of roaches in their patio!They advertise the happy hour for their guests, which is great! Just didn't like the attitude of the girl behind the bar lol. She made, the only thing we were happy about , she made it unpleasant to be there and enjoy cocktails before heading out for the night. I've stayed in different hotels in Miami Beach/South Beach and I like to try new ones for new experiences but definitely not going back to The Catalina.

Miami Summer Vacation!

Would recommend Mon, Aug 17, 2015
I enjoyed my stay a lot at the Catalina. The staff is super nice and friendly, especially Jean, at the front desk. This hotel is also across from the beach, and within walking distance to Lincoln Avenue and Collins Avenue where they have all the nice shops and restaurants. In addition, this hotel offers a voucher for free beach chairs, beach towrl, and serves a free happy hour every evening. For those who want a pool, this hotel has two of them, along with two good restaurants. The only negative feedback that I have is that the rooms weren't too spacious or modern, and didn't have any extra tables to put your stuff. My bed was literally next to the room door, and I didn't like that. The bathroom was very low average. It was small, and I would have preferred a fully closed sliding bath door. The bath towels were washed, but I could still see some hair and stains on it from previous use. So the rooms were not my favorite, but at least I was able to sleep fine, and the mattress was comfy! Overall, my experience was positive and fun at this hotel. I would recommend to others. Thank you! :)

Great girls weekend!

Would recommend Mon, Aug 10, 2015
Me and a girlfriend wanted a quick getaway to south beach and the Catalina was a great place to stay! Walking distance to plenty of restaurants, Lincoln road shopping and the beach was really helpful so we didn't have to rent a car. A free airport shuttle means we had to pay NOTHING for transportation at all! The mattresses in the rooms felt sooooo nice and Maxine's bistro had delicious food AND cocktails! The complimentary cocktail hour was free and the lines weren't too long. There were also board games to enjoy during downtime. I went to the beach daily and the chairs and umbrellas were conveniently right across the street. This is a great little spot!

Great getaway!

Would recommend Fri, Jul 31, 2015
I had concerns after reading people's reviews but it didn't take long to realize that those people are idiots. The staff is awesome! From the people at the front desk, to the bartender, to the manager at their restaurants, to house keeping, all amazing! The room was great, the location couldn't have been more perfect. Next time I go to Miami, I don't have to look for another hotel. Catalina feels like home to me. Thank you to the entire staff there, keep doing what you're doing!

Would not recommend this hotel at all

Would not recommend Fri, Jul 31, 2015
The hotel itself is has a smell of dampness as if the carpets need to be replaced, we didn't get out beds made or towel exchange until three days into our stay. I replenished my own towels due to the fact the towel cart with clean towels are left in the middle of the hall way. The Banboo pool chairs and cabanas mats on chairs are worn and some chairs were broken, the water in pool needs to be refreshed the color of water is grayish white. Same thing for the roof top pool. The terry cloth like covers are dirty and are worn. Lionel was called at the service desk for a heavier bed sheet and he said some one would bring it. No one ever came. Whenever you asked staff for anything they would say call front desk. Even if they had the item you needed in their hand. I don't think the resort fees of $20 a day should be charged the upkeep is horrible. I don't feel gratuity on the restaurants connected in the hotel should be included because are at Maxine Restaurant and the waitress on 7/29 at approximately 11:30 was horrible so y should I be forced to pay gratuity if the service was horrible.

Weekly solo trip from New Jersey

Would recommend Thu, Jul 23, 2015
I traveled from New Jersey for the week and got room 205. The room was nice not a lot of room but I didn't have cold water in my shower all week. I did complain once to the front desk they were gonna send someone up and never did so I toughed it out and just enjoyed my vacation regardless. I didn't want to complain but it was pretty bad. Besides that my stay was great and I enjoyed my time and Ivan the bartender is great service to your hotel. Thanks and I'll see you again soon.
