Loved it!

We happened to be able to stay here last weekend and enjoyed it immensely! The staff is amazing! Quick to respond to any request and very accommodating. The staff from the moment we walked in to the lobby to see if they had a vacancy for us was great and Ashley and Daniel were so helpful! Meeting new people at the firepit and having an amazing omelet made by Tony in the mornings! They kept the grounds as clean as can be! Each morning someone swept and cleaned the walkways! The location is awesome, right in the middle of all the fun but still quiet and serene to be able to relax. We hated to leave! Can't wait to return!

Summa Cum Laude Of Customer Service!

Had a great stay at the Pavilion hotel. Their customer service is top notch. (It made me wonder if the staff have BA degrees in Hotel Hospitality! A+++). They have knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant/friendly staff! Every interaction with the staff was great!
Just hours before leaving Catalina, my eight year old son chipped a large portion of his 2-front adult :( teeth at the local playground. This was such a bummer on our trip. My son was crying and so upset. The staff at the Pavilion hotel were so compassionate. They helped call a local dentist, directions to find a local grocer to find meds for him and ice for the swelling. Did I mention we weren’t even guest anymore at this point. We had checked out earlier that morning...but they still treated us like their guest!

Perfect In Every Way

What a gem! This hotel was offered as part of a package that my boyfriend purchased to celebrate my birthday, that included helicopter from Long Beach, hotel, restaurant discount, and more. It was such a surprisingly perfect experience. They've managed to pack a lot of detail into a rather small footprint. Detail being the operative word here too! Uber comfy outdoor lounge furniture? Check! A Quality wine and cheese offering in the afternoon? Check! No plastic glasses - no cheap sweaty cheese and crappy crackers for us! An actually delicious morning Breakfast? Check! Same deal - done perfectly right with a barrista making fabulous coffee drinks, an omelette maker and a small (but perfect) buffet.

Perfectly located with a private beach. Rooms are small, but efficient, and the bed and linens were some of the most comfortable I've even slept in anywhere around the world. I even asked who made the mattress, as I'd love to buy one for my home.

Lastly, as it was my birthday I was presented with a lovely little box of artisan chocolates and a free drink from the Avalon Grill. (That drink, combined with the $100 discount that we received in the package made our awesome meal there about $35!). Highly recommend this property when visiting Catalina.
