“Getting Better”

I have been a member of Catalina Spa for over 30 years. I have endured new owners and bankruptcy and all the crap that goes with it. I have watched a very nice park being run into the ground and people being treated like crap for years. Once when I complained about service, I was told " sue us, nobody has won yet!" 

While I wanted to just drop the clowns, my bride liked the place so we kept our membership (even though it changed greatly from what we bought).

Last year we met another new owner. His speech was the same as the three before him. I just rolled my eyes and said "we will see". This year I saw, they have improved the whole park tremendously. Office staff, store, lower pool, overall appearance and attitude. I now have real hope for the future of the park and feel free to recommend it.

“Love the new owners!”

Beautiful remodeled lower club house and pool. Seems to be keeping their promises!

“Just delightful”

We arrived just after sunset & were greeted by managers who helped us get to our spot. We were treated to a golf cart. Christmas parade with candy handouts & the cleanest facility we have been in in a long time. Great place to stay. Beautiful property. Gracious staff.

“Excellent park”

Owner has kept all promises. In the process of beautiful renovations and upgrades. If you had a bad experience in the past, give it another try!

What a find!  World class RV resort at a very affordable rate.  I wish I had known about this resort before I made monthly arrangements elsewhere.  Any one making negative reviews of this resort can only be a competitor trying to influence people.  They escort you to your space and assure you are able to set up and they even pick up rubbish bags at your space mornings and evenings 7 days a week, that's going above and beyond!  The staff couldn't be nicer, pools and gated grounds are very nicely kept.

“Really really Nice!”

They have a new pool and bathrooms are super nice! All amenities, very well kept, and nice camp spots! A must go to place if you want to relax! 

“I love it here”

New to RVing and new to here. People staff and guests are so incredibly helpful, patient and kind. The transition seems rough for some of the longstanding members and guests but I see how hard and dedicated the team is and I believe only good can happen here.

“I really want to love this place again”

This has been our home park since 1987. We no longer live in California, but it's close enough to visit every 1 or 2 years. We have seen management change from mediocre to downright awful about 8 times. Most of them were liars, cheats, and scoundrels as evidenced by other reviews here. The good news is I have hope for the new managers. They did not lie, they laid out an honest appraisal of what they need to do, they mentioned some options they were considering. All sound fair and reasonable. They know people have been mad at them. The lower clubhouse pool and rec center is undergoing major reconstruction, and it was so needed. Prices are not outrageous for the area, and as members it's only $15 per day. Give them time to finish the lower clubhouse construction and give it another try.

“Diamond in the Desert”

This Resort is Amazing!! Stumbled upon this resort. We wanted to go near the beach, but rates were High for Not a lot. Well this Resort has Everything! So many activities Plus meal night. Spots are great plus you get to pick were you park!

“WHAT ??”

What is going on with this place ?? We are members and current on all payments. We just recieved a bill for over $1700 in park maintenance fees. After lots of calls, messages and no answers, we finally get an answer to what the bill is for. Come to find out it was sent by accident.  WHAT ?? And now a buddy recieved a notice to stay off the premisses until his bill is paid in full. HE IS UP TO DATE ON ALL FEES. Now we are hostage because to change parks we have to pay new fees to join the new park. I am dumping this place when I figure out how !!
