We really enjoyed our stay. The views were incredible. It was clean and included most of the amenities you would expect. There was plenty of room for a family of four. It was sometimes noisy due to loud, late-night guests at the pool. The golf cart was pretty old, including broken seat belts. Master bath shower head was pretty old/corroded and could be replaced, and there wasn't any dishwasher detergent to clean the dishes properly. None of these things were too big of a deal, as we really liked the place. We just thought we'd offer a few suggestions for minor fixes.
Hamilton Cove is a great place to stay on Catalina! Our Condo was very clean and comfortable. Kitchen had what we needed. Great location in the condo too. Close to pool and beach.
The golf cart was a bit of a beater. There was a really sharp rusty edge that my kid got cut on and only three of the four seat belts worked. But it got us around everywhere we needed to go.
They were really nice about trying to accommodate late and early check out.
Incredible view and location
My expectations were exceeded and after 30 years of refusing to go to Hamilton cove This was my best trip
We loved it here beautiful,easy access,comfortable....great snorkling!! ....our only complaint was not knowing dogs has been here....one of our party very allergic would be good to know ahead
We would definitely come back. It was clean and had everything we needed. There are a lot of stairs getting to the room, not recommended forr elderly or very young. Balcony is very tiny. Couch and bed and fantastic, decor is run down and dated. The view is beautiful. Unfortunately during our entire stay they were doing construction on surrounding areas! It was very loud and started very early in the morning, workers talking very loud and jack hammering! The entire beach area was closed the day we rented snorkel gear which was very sad for my kids. One of my daughters was shot on the beach from a spear gun by a drunk scuba diver who was being very careless with his gun(on her birthday!) Very scary! It should be noted that you will need beach towels and water shoes! We loved our location above the pool. We parasailed, went jet skiing, zip lining, swimming in the ocean and pool. The gas station is very hard to find, it's way out there. The golf cart is very old and run down. Aside of all of this we had a very nice time and would love to come back someday.
I have never been to Catalina before and the island and the condo exceeded my expectations. The condo was ideal for our family of 4, very comfortable, amazing views, all the amenities needed. My kids loved having access to the community pool and the golf cart for us to use throughout our stay. Chela was super helpful and very prompt in answering our questions - thanks!
The only slight downside was the family with young kids staying next door who ran around early in the morning screaming and thumping on our ceiling.....but that would not prevent us from coming back again.
