How to Get There
We had a wonderful one night stay at the Pavilion Hotel. It was our first time to the island and not sure what to expect. We were greeted at the dock by a steward whom took our bags directly to the hotel (although we found only a 10 min walk). Check went fast and easy all thanks to Danny! He was so helpful in explaining the amenities, the free excursions (take advantage of them), recommended restaurants and things to do. He also helped resolve a minor issue with our room in no time. Not a fancy hotel but has what you need. The complimentary full course breakfast and complimentary wine and cheese tasting were the icing n the cake. Stay here for sure!
Everything about this hotel is a real treat. I chose it because of it's online rating and the description given on its website. The location is perfect, the staff was welcoming and very helpful, the room was lovely, and their afternoon wine and cheese and more-than-your-ordinary hotel breakfast made it the ideal place to stay. There is a central garden/patio with a fire pit as well as individual patios by some (all?) of the rooms.
26 miles across the sea, with Santa Catalina waiting for me, we didn’t know what to expect. My wife and I stepped off the ferry and were welcomed with complimentary luggage service, what a nice surprise! The location can’t be beat right off the pier with a beautiful view of the harbor. The common-spaces are well planned including comfortable seating, board games and a fire pit! We enjoyed breakfast and a nightly wine and cheese party that must rival the Catalina wine mixer.
The room we had was a king, bed was comfortable. Our room really wasn’t a place to hang out, had very little natural light tucked behind lush vegetation. I would normally knock a star off for this but the service, comfort of the bed, quality of the common space, and the breakfast and wine more than made up for it. We even enjoyed the complimentary bikes for a morning workout. No regrets staying here I promise!
Good location—not far to walk from dock. Has Room service, will bring bags to your room, good hot breakfast, free bicycle, nice courtyard and lounge, evening wine and cheese included , free island tour or free undersea explorer tour included. Has turn down service at night and complimentary water as the water here doesn’t taste good.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Pavilion for a romantic getaway and we were so happy we made the right choice picking this place! It was conveniently located by the water and near the ferry. Room was very comfortable. We enjoyed all of the amenities it offered from having someone at the ferry to pick up our luggage, to hot breakfast, to wine/cheese reception to its complimentary activities. It made our stay feel well worth it. Everyone was friendly and helpful. It felt like a resort in itself. We had so much fun on the island that we extended our stay from 2 nights to 3 nights and although we couldn’t keep our same room, we wanted to stay in that same Hotel for what it had to offer. Would definitely come back again!
