Good hotel overall. However, layout is weird, and corridor is funky and stinky. See full review

Stylish South Beach hotel with free happy hour and bustling nightlife

When in South Beach, lounge, dine and cocktail like the locals. The nightlife sizzles at the Catalina Hotel and Beach Club, thanks to two rooftop pools, three bars and two restaurants, including the people-watching hub Maxine's. The Catalina celebrates its boutique style with bold design elements such as stark white seating and linens and sumptuous red walls and lamps. Poolside beds reflect South Beach's quintessential luxurious approach to everyday living.

Highlights
  • Two rooftop pools, three bars and two restaurants, including South Beach favorite Maxine's
  • Free shuttle from Miami International Airport
  • Free happy hour from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • VIP passes to South Beach clubs
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.

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.

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. Located in our North building the restaurant, caf, and bar is a great place to people watch while enjoying cocktails and delicious treats.
Kung Fu Sushi
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. The delicious and affordable fare is served amidst dcor that is just as impressive. Partnering with famed artist Lebo to showcase his work, this sexy mod-Asian bistro will offer a complete experience for your senses. As the choice of unique establishments offered becomes increasingly limited in Miami Beach, travelers can continue to rely on the South Beach Group as the source for lifestyle hotels and restaurants that are always original and interesting.

Good, not great

I stayed at The Catalina about two years ago and loved it. This time not so much. First of all our room had ants. Then we lost water for a few hours one morning. The best part of the hotel is the roof top pool, which was closed on Saturday. Granted, there was a threat of bad weather, but it was only cloudy. I would give them another chance though.

Summer Getaway

This trip was primarily for relaxation and enjoyment purposes. Coming from a hospitality work background, I would have to say the room could have used more cleaning, i.e., the accent pillow was dirty, the bathroom tiles had grout, vents were very dusty, and the floors had scuff marks everywhere which made the floors look dirtier. I would recommend that the hotel have an ice vending machine on each floor; the room had an ice bucket, but we had to go down to the lobby and they said someone would bring it to our room.. and that actually took about 15 minutes. The free shuttle to the airport was a great amenity, but it came 30 minutes late. I would recommend that guests schedule the shuttle 1 hour before they're supposed to be at the airport.. to be on the safe side. The hotel was a block from the beach and close walk to restaurants and other hotels. The hotel staff was very kind and helpful! I would recommend this hotel to people who are coming for a good time and are on a budget.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Lounge chairs/umbrellas on the beach cost $10-15 each. My advice is to go to Wings (local souvenir/beach supplies store) and buy beach mats, umbrellas or chairs.. they are cheaper if you intend to go to the beach daily.

Pool party

The room was beautiful and chic. Room service was on point. The pool was great. There's a 100 hundred dollar deposit and resort fee that should be optional if yr not staying for long. They give you discount for their restaurants but it expires when you check out. If you didn't get a chance to use, then you miss out. The pool is spectacular. Happy hour is ok but drinks are limited and they are really stingy with giving you more than one.

Great location

Great location, however the room was extremely small, and there was no maid service. I had to call multiple times to get addition towels.

Great Spot

First off this is a great hotel for anyone looking to enjoy South beach. Wow! What a variety of people! Kids. Teens. College students. Grad Students. And what I thought was really cool was the person who took my room after me was 80! Staff is helpful and friendly, rooms were comfy and clean. I went by myself and met so many new people and we all had a blast!
