Sophisticated but fun, the Catalina Hotel and Beach Club Miami Beach combines the classic elegance of Europe with the hip vibe of a beach club. The decor is relaxing with soft neutrals and splashes of color. It's resplendent with two pools, four bars and a rooftop terrace. The pools are the hotel's most popular amenity. The Bamboo Pool brings in the ambiance of tropical getaway with bamboo trees, comfy cabanas and even a cabana boy to fetch towels, sunscreen or anything else you might need. The Rooftop Pool affords you sky-high views of Miami Beach with private cabanas, a fully stocked bar and plenty of luxurious lounge beds to soak in the Florida rays.

Rooms

Who says white has to be boring? The hue makes a dramatic statement when paired with red walls or damask-print. Floor-to-ceiling curtains lend softness to the rooms, where Tempur-pedic mattresses, 300-count Belgian sheets and goose down comforters are standard amenities. Space isn't an issue. Each room holds enough square footage to accommodate an in-house masseuse.

Property features

 


The hotel hands out VIP passes to the hottest clubs, but the property is a nightlife magnet on its own. Visitors can sample sashimi in Kung-Fu Kitchen & Sushi or mingle with other singles at the rooftop pool. Go ahead: Order a cocktail from the cabana bed.

 

When it's time to catch a flight home, guests can cut their travel time via the free airport shuttle. An in-house system also enables visitors to modify, buy and confirm their flights from the hotel lobby.

Highlights

It isn't Miami Beach without visiting the ocean. Guests of the hotel are treated to two complimentary beach lounge chairs at the Beach Club and access to Catalina beach-cruiser style bicycles. Start the morning at the Red Bar and Cafe for freshly baked pastries, soft bagels and all the coffee you need. Try unique dishes at the swanky Fung Ku, a kitschy Asian bistro located inside the hotel that's open late, so you can stop by after dancing at the nearby Hush Bar & Lounge. Maxine's Bistro and Bar serves yummy breakfast all day long but also serves up an afternoon delight of fun cocktails and plenty of casual fare.

Maxine Restaurant & Bar
The Maxine Restaurant at The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club is open and serves breakfast all day long! The Challah bread French toast is already known to be the best on South Beach.

Kung Fu Sushi is an eclectic mix of sushi and Asian food with a real kick. The menu ranges from Seabass to Japanese Red Snapper Rolls, and you'll definitely want to cleanse the palate with signature sake cocktails like the Tokyo Rose or Japanese Jade.

Great stay

The hotel was perfect for just us girls for two nights. Comfortable and nice sized room, amazing beds!! Decor was great, loved the bathroom and all the mirrors. Bartender was awesome in the main building. The cons were our floor had a funny kind of smell..and walking through the restaurant with bags wasn't fun. But we had a great time and I will definitely book there next time I am in Miami.

Not my idea of a relaxing weekend

The worst hotel I've ever experienced. Let me preface this by saying, this was our 2nd trip to South Beach for a girls weekend. We liked our last hotel, but heard good things about the Catalina so we wanted to try it. The pics online LOOKED good too! Upon checking in, the lobby & outdoor areas are really nice. Once we got to our room, we were in total shock. It was SO tiny! The concierge told us it was their last double bed room so if we weren't happy we couldn't switch (yeah right). The lighting was horrible. & it was hot! Apparently, the ventilation in the room wasn't working. It was always 79 degrees in the room! It got so unbearable, we called down & had them bring up a portable air conditioning unit. At one point, the bathroom ceiling started leaking. The overwhelming smell of marijuana was in our halls, although they made it clear there was no smoking in the rooms. There was nonstop music coming from downstairs, next door, outside. All over! The bamboo pool had leaves in it, so we weren't able to take advantage of that. The ONE thing we enjoyed was the rooftop pool with the dj set. Housekeeping never came to make our beds or give us clean towels. They swung by at 5 pm on Saturday asking if we wanted our room cleaned.. well, not while we're in there! We took towels from the cart in the hallway. & tried our best not to stay in the room for our stay. Ugh. Do yourself a favor & look into other options! Don't waste your money!

Just OK

This hotel has the potential to be great but for right now it is just ok. The hotel is beautiful but it only goes skin deep. We told the wrong pick up site for the complimentary transport from the airport by the hotel staff. We had to pay some randoms bus driver a fee to get to the hotel. One of the nights we were there the housekeeper had eaten our snacks we brought in while watching tv. We were given a free breakfast voucher. The next day we use the voucher and our breakfast was horrible. Our order was wrong and the food was cold. We were approached by the owner of resturant and was given a free breakfast the next day. I do not feel we were compensated fully for the drama we had to endure during this trip with our hotel. Miami was still a great place.

Birthday Getaway

My boyfriend and I traveled here for his birthday. The concierge and I had been communicating because I wanted to make this stay a great one and when we arrived they had the room decorated with balloons, cards, cute little towel animals, and champagne. Very nice rooms and loved the happy hour!!

Beautiful Chaos

There was construction going on at the time. So it was a little bit of an inconvenience pulling up old carpet so there was an odor but, I went out and saw the sights so that made up for it. Staff was friendly...free happy hour every night...great friendly atmosphere. Restaurants next door were tasty too.
