2/10 Poor

3-night family trip
Verified guest review

8/10 Very good

Fine view, Clever housekeeping, and Classic style
A classic old hotel which tries hard and it needs rejuvenation. The room was clean and functional. Most interesting was the daily designs on the bed by the housekeeper---Fanny. She's a real artist. Lots of stairs, each day we walked up and down eight floors for breakfast and going to the street or to the beach. No need for a gym here. Breakfast food was splendid. Management failed to prepare the room for our first night. They made it right the next day. The main negatives are a lack of bottled water in the room necessitating the above mentioned stair climb daily, like walking to a river for daily water. Also, need coffee in the room since the restaurant is open at 8 am and two floors up. Friendly and agreeable staff all around.

Paradise on Playa Ropa
Catalina Beach Resort has been my secret heart spot for nearly 20's not fancy, but it's delightful! Location on Playa Ropa is ideal and the beach bar anchors it. What makes the Catalina special is the people--some have grown up here and their pride of place is palpable. The hotel cascades down a hill so if you don't like stairs think long and hard--makes one earn those margies in the sand!

Great place on a great beach
Great views. Not crowded. Plenty of lounge chairs at pool and on beach. Very friendly staff. Rooms could use a little TLC but looked to be the nicest place on this stretch of beach in this price range. Would definitely stay again. We stayed in LindaVista room and had great view and plenty of room. We were going to switch to a beachside suite mid- way thru our stay to be closer to beach and pool but decided to stay in LindaVista. Yes there are stairs but nothing to worry about unless you have mobility issues. You'll be a little winded once or twice a day when you walk up. This place is worth it!

4/10 Fair

Stairs, stairs, stairs. Literally on the side of a cliff with thousands of staircases to reach the beach. If you are abled-bodied, its just a bit annoying. If you are older or less-able, it will be difficult. No lifts or ramps, come ready to climb. Room was dated but clean. The beach is okay, one day it was smelly and foamy, the other days it was ok. I wished I had known about the actual location before I booked. Okay for the price, with an asterisk.
