This is a well thought out hotel, very comfortable beds and pillows. Friendly staff--all shifts equally happy to assist. The continental breakfast is simple, but sufficient and you can take a tray to your room or enjoy it in the lobby area overlooking the harbor. The small 14 room hotel is in a perfect location. The decor, finishes and amenities are high quality without the arrogance of some major brand hotels. A surprisingly very well lit room--you can control the lighting from dim to very well lit. A beautiful gas fireplace, comfortable beds-- even the pull out bed was one of the most comfortable of pull out beds. Small bathrooms. There is a narrow stairway to reach the hotel, but the staff advises you of this when you make the reservation and even offers assistance if required to bring up the luggage. Great hotel! Very clean.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms open up to a "hallway", naturally vented covered courtyard. Very pleasant. A couple of the rooms have an ocean facing terrace, but the terraces didn't seem very private. Unless you want to spend a long time in the room, don't think the extra $ would be worth it.

With a little help from other reviews on Tripadvisor and then pretty much a random pick (most of the reviews from the other hotels were good as well) I chose Hotel Vista Del Mar and it was the right choice. Lovely room overlooking the beach and harbor. as an anniversary trip we could not have asked for anything better. The staff was nice, the hotel was pristine, and we can't wait to go back!

I travel for a living, and have to say this has been my favorite hotel I've stayed in. The rooms were absolutely beautiful, clean, and I especially enjoyed the fireplaces in each room. Most beautiful showers, looked brand new, and the bed and foldout bed were super comfy. The fold outs have memory foam, and way more comfortable than my own bed at home. As you walk out of the rooms, the atrium area was stunning. gorgeous plants and flowers everywhere. Also the hotel has a spectacular ocean view, that I enjoyed every evening with a glass of the hotels delicious signature wine, which is for purchase at a great price at the front desk. I will recommend this hotel to all my friends and co-workers.You won't be disappointed. Also it is located in the center of town, so that is another plus.

Room Tip: The Ocean View Suites are incredible!

The Hotel Vista Del Mar is a lovely place to hang ones hat. It was clean, staff friendly, and helpful and the room was just the perfect size. The small touches and amenities in the room were well thought out. For instance, the fireplace facing the bed, the plushy robe and the large walk in shower were welcome treats, not to mention the coolies and milk, which if requested, can be sent to your room in the evening. Additionally, the continental breakfast, served in the lobby was a great way to start the day. The Vista Del Mar is a clear hit!

My husband and I decide to get away from the "December Rush" for 2 days and went to Catalina Island... stayed at Hotel Vista Del Mar for 2 nights. It was the best "down time" we could possibly ask for at that time of year. The hotel was spotless, room was fully updated, cozy fireplace, bed was the BEST... I slept better there than at home. The staff was extremely friendly and ever present for anything we needed, the amenities are many however the warm milk and cookies each night was the topper. We will absolutely be returning to this hotel very soon.
