Great place to get away on Vancouver Island. The log cabins are great, with kitchen, fireplace and outdoor patio. Can't wait to return someday. Super clean kitchen and bathrooms. We were having a problem with the firewood being damp and they not only sent dry wood immediately -the guy lit the fire for us. Great service!

It was great staying. My boyfriend and I were here for one night, the ocean view was fantastic, the mineral pool was quite enjoyful, the endless tapa was mind blowing, all the dishes were tasteful. Definitely will come back for more staying. And I already recommended to my friends here for their big day.

The ceilings are 14 ft at least! I have stayed here a number of times and not once have I heard any noise from any of the other suites. There was a cabin unit through the trees that was hosting a wedding and the guests were quite loud but by 11pm (quiet time at the resort) they had their party...

From start to finish, we were treated with above and beyond the most superb service. Our room was perfect and ready earlier then expected. The staff was amazing and very attentive.

Great place for singles, couples and families. Surrounding areas beautiful, great food. But choose accommodations carefully. Not everything is completely private. Has a swimming pool, basketball courts, tennis and bikes to rent. A beautiful white sandy beach with warm water in the summer months. Lots to do. Spa is nice too.

This was a little disappointing, the room was a bit dark and shabby, probably next in line for an overhaul, as I believe other areas have been done. Two quite tricky staircases to carry 2 heavy suitcases up. Bathroom was the tiniest I have ever come across, again probably due for an update. However, room was large and with a...
