Far from the maddening crowd, Hotel La Catalina is situated on a mountain side with stunning panoramic views of the Atlantic. A peaceful retreat that's easy on the mind and budget, the property is split between condos on one side and hotel rooms. In general, the condos are larger but don't have a/c. The simple, smaller hotel rooms have an all-white motif, a/c, ocean views and boutique touches There is a beach shuttle service (supplement) and one of the closest (a mile away) is gorgeous Orchid Bay Beach. Amenities include two pools, tennis courts, yoga, conference rooms, and full spa services. Courteous, long-term employees are the norm here.
