I have stayed at Ocean Trails on several occasions, and therefor have stayed in several different rooms. In total I have spent approximately 12 weeks at Ocean Trails over three years, onmy own and with my family. The staff at Ocean Trails are friendly, attentive and provide an excellent service. The rooms have similar layouts, but individual furnishing. Laundry machines...

Thank you for your winter stay – certainly this year we got more of the white stuff than what is typical here, and we’re glad it didn’t spoil your time with us. Our units are built with convenience and independence in mind, so during a longer stay, it feels like you’re right at home. However, if you ever need us...

Great amenities, roomy, and comfortable! Well-stocked kitchen...everything you need! There was so much room for me, my two girls, and our family friends, too. Love the quick access to the beach, Black Goose Inn, and Parksville. Will definitely return!

Thanks for writing a TripAdvisor review. Our units definitely have space, whether you’re in a one level condo or a multi-level townhouse there’s lots of room for everyone. You can always count on the kitchens being well stocked, and now that the weather is getting better, renting a BBQ from the front desk is a nice addition. We’ll look forward...

Stayed at Ocean Trails Resort in a 2 bedroom condo for one night only. It was a great place, very very clean and comfortable. Had everything you needed in a condo. Not located on the ocean but had a stairwell that you could walk down to the beach. Would definitely stay again.

Thanks for coming back to Ocean Trails – we appreciate it! Our condos are an excellent choice for teams. There’s lots of room to socialize, get people together for meetings, cook some snacks, watch game video or maybe just a movie.

The room overall was extremely clean, but during the night, I woke up itching all over and noticed insect bites, on arms and legs. Then I moved to couch in the living room and that too didn't help. The next day I had put all my clothing into wash and dryer including bed sheets. The pillows were also put into...

We stayed at a three bedroom unit that was well equipped, modern, nice furniture and very roomy. Shaded by the natural setting of trees but not overbearing and dark. Being a bit away from the pool provided a quieter experience. Sport amenities were nice and free to use. Path to beach a bit steep, could be improved on but manageable...
