What a great find! We wanted a short getaway, and this was perfect. We booked the one bed suite (King executive). It was lovely and spacious, like a small apartment. Very clean. Although it didn’t have a kitchen, we had a bar fridge, sink, and microwave and lots of cupboard space. Luckily we had a picnic basket (plates & cutlery, bread knife, etc) in the car, so this is what I’d recommend if you want to make light meals. The staff were friendly and helpful and great amenities.

Booked last minute after camping washout for my birthday. The Resort Manager Jamie organised our early check in and a lovely bottle of Prosecco and card. Rooms are clean and a good size. Beds are comfy. The bar and the restaurant serve fabulous food. A good selection on the menu. I got a birthday cake dessert, which was a nice touch. All the staff are so friendly, helpful and polite. From reception checking in, to the restaurant host, bar staff and restaurant servers. A well run operation.

Having seen an advertisement on TV for the Bayside Resort my partner and I decided to book a 3-night getaway at this resort. We phoned to make a reservation and were told that there was currently a promotion offering a 25% discount if we booked before the end of February so we took advantage of this and booked a pet friendly room with an ocean view. When we arrived to check in we were immediately impressed by the spacious and immaculate lobby and the staff at reception were very friendly and welcoming. We were given a room on the 2nd floor with an amazing view of the ocean and overlooking the hotel grounds. The first thing we noticed upon entering the room was the dog bed and water and food bowls that had been set out - that was a first. Next, the TV had been left on with some relaxing music playing which was another added touch. There was a king sized bed with lots of pillows and they even had an extra blanket stored in a cupboard, although we didn't need it. The bathroom was spotless and had all the little extra toiletries that you get at most hotels. There was a separate area that had a mini fridge, Nespresso coffee maker and kettle and unlike the Harrison Hot Springs hotel that used paper cups and powdered milk, the Bayside provided ceramic coffee mugs and real cream that was in the fridge. The corridors were quiet and we didn't hear any noise from any of the other surrounding rooms. The first day we arrived we decided to check out the restaurant for dinner. There had been mixed reviews as to the food and service so we went with an open mind. Our server was extremely friendly and helpful. We ordered calamari for an appetizer and I had the seafood linguine for my entree, which was delicious. My partner ordered the slow-braised short ribs. He hadn't had much to eat all day, so when his plate arrived he was disappointed in the small portion size. Although he said it tasted good he wasn't close to being full so he asked our server if he could get a side of pasta or something similar to fill him up. She was more than happy to check with the chef to see what he could do and shortly after came back to say they could give him a plate of linguine with some sauce, which he was more than happy to order. The resort offers 2 swimming pools - an outdoor one (which was closed for the season) and an indoor one that is partially covered and partially outdoors and they did have a hot tub which unfortunately is no longer in working order due to a leakage and age. They also had a reasonably equipped gym although we didn't take advantage of it. After talking to the staff we were informed that there are plans to update the outside of the building, fully enclose the indoor pool and hopefully replace the hot tub. We suggested that a sauna would be a great addition and they agreed! Compared to several of the other "resorts" in Parksville that we looked into, the Bayside far outweighed them in terms of views, accommodation and price and we definitely hope to go back again. and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone looking for a relaxing and comfortable getaway.

Where do I even start… Staff are amazing and super friendly. By happenstance they were outside when we arrived and greeted us by name (never been here before, but they just knew somehow)! The room was also great (two queen). It overlooked the ocean and we had an impeccable view. Overall the place was well kept and clean (resort and room itself). It was also not noisy (day or night) and we felt extremely relaxed. We will definitely need to come back in the summer time!

After a fantastic night of pickleball (yup!) we went with friends to the lounge for a post-game drink. Anthony was the consummate host: chatting, friendly, personable and professional. Plus, happy hour to boot! It was a perfect evening in the perfect location with the perfect company and host!

We stayed overnight at the bayside resort in Parksville and were very impressed. The room was spotless and well appointed, the bed comfortable and the view from the balcony was spectacular. The staff on reception and in the restaurant were outstanding; very friendly and helpful, as well as efficient. The food at dinner in the evening and at breakfast was delicious and delivered quite quickly. We will certainly stay here again when next in the area.

My partner and I decided to stay here for one night to celebrate my birthday. The hotel is recently renovated and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. A special shout out to Jamie for leaving Prosecco in our room for my birthday and to Jack who saved us a taxi fare and drove us so we could visit the sand castle competition. The bed was comfy and the restaurant was great. 10/10.

Fabulous location for lunch with beautiful view over the beach & ocean. Food was very good (you won’t be disappointed with the chowder) and wine very nice. Our waitress (Alyssa) was very professional, friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend 🤩

I have selected this hotel for the oceanfront view to celebrate our 34th Wedding Anniversary, oceanfronts which i loved the most, whenever i travel with my husband, have been my priority, unfortunately when I booked due to misunderstanding with a third party agent assigned me to a standard room to my frustration and paying a less than 300 a night with a high expectation of a beautiful view, doubled my disgust. We requested at the Front Desk if there will be cancellations or early check out but was declined twice reasoning out that their hotel was fully booked. Fortunately, I am just grateful that two competent and very welcoming staff at the Front Desk, on Day 2, went over and beyond their usual tasks of accommodating our second night with an Oceanfront view despite on a full house. Kudos to Shannon and Stuart for the effort by making my husband’s Anniversary treat a meaningful one and for granting my request. The hotel restaurant has wonderful staff too. Totally grateful!
