I stayed here for a quick getaway weekend with my fiancee. I had just flew in from the cold Midwest state of Chicago and caught the Catalina Express ferry to the Island. I was glad when I realized that I didn't have far to walk far from the port landing to the hotel. It was on the main street and...

Juan happily checked in our luggage right off the boat, which enabled us to start enjoying our 24th wedding anniversary asap! Guillermo checked us in quickly. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Continental Euro breakfast and Starbucks coffee was very nice. Wine and cheese around the fire pit in the evenings were very enjoyable, meeting many...

Best value on the island, possibly the best hotel period. I needed two good nights of sleep for scuba adventures and the Pavilion delivered. While other divers experienced the restless nights of loud pipes, thin walls and hard beds, I slept in complete peace after 11pm and woke up to wonderful coffee and service. Then the 4:30 wine and cheese...

Nicely remodeled rooms with comfortable beds and nice linens. Rooms are small but we didn't mind as the seating areas under the Pavilion were comfortable and perfect for people watching. Couches, chairs and tables. Nice lounge chairs also spread throughout the lushly gardened courtyard that afforded some privacy. The wine/breakfast room is an included perk. Lots of fresh fruit, cereal,...
