Perfect vacation spot
Staff is always awesome every time I visit. We have really gotten to know them over the y are that we have stayed here. The location on La Playa Ropa is so nice, you really get a great spot in the beach, the view is amazing. I don’t think I would stay anywhere else down there.

Always upgrade your room
The standard room through was really bad. No air conditioning and an old outdated room. We had to pay 1,000 pesos to upgrade and the room was nice.

And they need an elevator to go down to beach area
This hotel needs a complete renovation!

A great place for the adventurous.
One of my favorite places in the world but not for the faint of heart. Many steps to get back and forth to the beach but you will be in great shape when you leave! Wonderful service people who will carry your stuff to your room and bring you whatever you need.It's always an extraordinary experience.

Experience Authentic Mexico
We spent two nights here during a multi-day stay in the area. Yes, the stairs are exhausting- but how else can you can have a place to stay perched along the top of a beach? We loved that they had filtered water, ice from the filtered water, and they provided water pitchers in each room. The staff at the Catalina is truly family and service oriented; there wasn't a thing we asked for/about that wasn't accommodated or fulfilled. The pool area was clean, beautiful, and quiet. The hammocks on the room terrace were lovely and peaceful, and the fresh flowers in our room from around the property were a great surprise.
