Stayed in the Lodge and the waterfront view was amazing. I wouldn't highly recommend booking a package as our BC Ferry's travel and access to the Eucalyptus cave at spa was included. The adults only pool is lovely for evening swims. Poets Cove Resort & Spa is a perfect weekend getaway.

We stayed in a cottage and it was lovely. For the first 4 days we had a wonderful housekeeper named Ella who would leave notes and ask us if we needed anything. When I asked for something, she would follow through. I was very disappointed when she wrote me that it was her last day and we were unable to...

Cannot say enough about the resort for a wedding venue! We got married at Poets Cove in September and everything was more than perfect! Staff, food, decor, accommodation were all excellent and staff were very helpful and accommodating! Thank you Poets crew for an amazing weekend we will never forget!

All in all, the resort is very well-built, solid and beautiful. The cottages are quaint and equipped. Little unfinished details were left unnoticed like not one full length mirror, no makeup mirror, no dressers in bedrooms to put your unpacked your clothes, only one night table on the king sized bed. No room service even though there are two restaurants...

Good afternoon Irini Thank you for the review. I would be more than happy to look into your advice on the full length mirrors and makeup mirrors in our rooms.

We stayed here for a couple of days in September. The room was great...very comfy bed, huge balcony overlooking the harbour. It's rather secluded, about 40 min. Drive From the ferry, on a hilly, windy road. That might explain why some places close down at 4:00... There didn't seem to be any lights on the road...wouldn't want to drive it...

We stayed for 2 nights and the location and view are top notch. The furnishings were dated and a bit shabby. The room was clean when we arrived but housekeeping did not clean the room the next day - so our second night was less comfy. The hot tub and pool did not look clean enough to use and the...

Spent only 1 night at the Resort. Accommodations were very good. Lovely view of the marina from balcony. Beautifully landscaped. Quit and peaceful. Dinning left a lot to be desired however. Dinning was not in the dinning room, but in the lounge and outside lounge (luckily was a beautiful evening). We are not outdoor eaters and ate inside. Did not...

We have visited Poets Cove on several occasions over the years. This a wonderful setting on a unique little island. We have only eaten here as we have friends nearby with whom we stay. The food and beverages are "nice." Nothing special and relatively expensive. Service is adequate too. Again nothing special.
