This past July, my girlfriends and I, went to South Beach just to get away from every day life. We enjoyed it. It is located across the street from the beach and within walking distance to nightlife and resturants. We had four in the room and the only problem was there was not enough room to walk with everyones luggage on the floor. Who ever thought to put a mirror in the shower was a genius. It allowed us all to get ready at the same time. The room was not well lit and the a/c was not to our liking, but the roof top pool area and other pool areas were awesome. We truly loved the huge over sized chairs that sit outside. This allowed us to people watch and hold court if we so chose to. The staff was very friendly and accomadating. We are returning in the summer of 2009 and will once again be staying at the Catalina with a few changes.
