It’s an interesting walk into the property because you are immediately fronted by huge construction equipment, yes there is a warning when booking but it hits you in the face when you open the lifts which have padding, and when you walk out of the lifts the walls of the corridors are stripped of wallpaper and suddenly you get very...

A really lovely apartment with some great views of the ocean, and an interesting set up with a window looking in to the en-suite! A great place to stay with helpful staff and a great location. Lovely swimming pool and just a short 2 min walk to the beach.

Welcomed by very friendly staff and then was surprised to find ourselves upgraded from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 3 bedroom with 2 bathrooms (room 88). It had great views out over the sea and a nice balcony that got the morning to mid afternoon sun. Well located with access to the beach about 50 metres away and close...

The location is perfect as it is just a short walk across the road to the beach, the units are a good size and plenty of cafes nearby.... the staff were super helpful too at helping out with all sorts of bits and pieces.

We stayed in Catalina 2 over New Years. Beautiful view. Lovely apartment, very spacious, had everything that we needed. Great having a laundry in the bathroom. Kids were in the pool everyday and loved it. Close to beach. Will definitely be back.

We stayed in Room 63 for nearly a week. It is a 3 bedroom so called 'garden room' unit. We have stayed several times previously at this resort and had nothing but praise. This room 63 however has an owner who needs to maintain and update the room urgently! Views on both sides were simply carparks - no gardens at...

We stayed for 5 nights at Catalina 2 by choice as it had air conditioning and it had been extremely hot leading up to our stay.
