Spent 11 days in a 2 bedroom apartment. Unfortunately the room was outdated and not up to our standards. It was very noisy since it is by a major road. The room had a full kitchen and a balcony which we liked.The carpet in the room needs upgrading because it has a strong animal smell which we disliked. The curtains...

Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to review our lovely resort. I apologize about the noise from the store and the pet smell that you had to endure. We are renovating that particular room and putting in a sound barrier that will hopefully eliminate the the noise factor. The next time you stay with us, I would suggest...

All in all a great little place. We stayed with our two small Grandsons in one of the new cabins. Very cute & comfortable layout with plenty of room. The kitchen was well equipped with the wares to make dinners. The fridge and stove are a good size. There is a bar with 2 stools to eat at, a table...

Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to review our wonderful property. I apologize for the hardness of the single beds in the secondary bedroom. We have replaced the beds now as part of the full renovation of the room style that you stayed in. The sofa in the main living area is brand new and still quite firm...

Stayed in a cabin last week with family and 2 young children. Was great to see all staff on site were friendly and smiling all the time. Safe area for kids to roam around. Kids will love the pool and slides, or going to the store for candies. Beach nearby too. Campers around kept quiet around 9pm. Mostly RVs, a...

We had a two bedroom, a 1 bedroom and a campsite with our family. The 1 bedroom had been updated but the two was not. It was very dated- a screen patio door would have been nice and bathroom screen had fallen. The pool is smaller then it appears and they wanted more money for the mini golf. The course...

Good Afternoon, Thank you for your review of our lovely resort.

A two-month stay (May and June) with my dog at the Riverside Resort on the Island Highway. It's just outside of Qualicum town near the Little Qualicum River Estuary, maybe a 6-minute walk from the ocean. My dog and I headed for the beach every morning for our walks. Being close to the ocean was an absolute must for me....

The complex needs a refresh, and calling it a resort is a bit of a stretch. The taps leaked, toilet ran on. Some staff felt the ringing phone was more important the someone standing in front of them. On the upside the room was clean. Rates are inexpensive as is the pet fee. It's not nice, but certainly clean and...

This was our 5th annual camp out for staff and families. Of all the places we have gone - this was the worst. From arrival on, the staff were rude, disrespectful, and actually untruthful in their accusations. Even though we had families whose children were asleep right next to us, and others who couldn't hear us from two sites over...
