Hello everyone, just heard that the Catalina was under new management.
I know it was up for sale for yrs so was curious if anyone knows the details as I cannot find any news online.
The Website changed, etc. So I hope the staff is still in place and that there business is doing well as I have fond memories of that hotel.
Thx in advance.

Yes, it was sold recently.

I noticed the new website, too. Totally screwed up the history section and left all the good stuff out. No, this was never a retreat for an Aztec king. Purépecha Caltzontzin from Lago de Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, yes. Aztec King, no. Too bad they didn't let me make their new website for them. It has lots of typos and errors of fact and a very odd description of the place, IMHO. Oh well...

My understanding is that the son Alejandro owns half and a group in Mexico City owns half.

Rooms have changed names. That's going to be rough on long-time guests.

Not sure how much of the old staff remains.

Gather most of the staff is there, at least for the present. I agree that the website needs work. A lot of work. Things change (said a very long time guest). We shall see.

Some things change. Others mutate.
