Lovely place, very quiet and peaceful. We stayed two nights in a lakeview studio suite.The staff were all very friendly. The restaurant was closed, so we ordered pizza, but had we wanted to cook, there was a full kitchen in the suite, complete with a dishwasher! The location is great, fifteen minutes from Penticton, and dozens of wineries to explore. There is a wonderful walking trail behind the KVR up the hill with incredible views.

The rooms were clean, the bed was comfy, the pool and hot tub were great and it was very nice to have a kitchen in the room (we had a studio suite) to make some meals in. We were on the bluff/street side which at first would have preferred to be on the lake side, however after being here for a couple of days we realized we had a great spot. The balcony was shaded in the morning & in the evening which was great to sit out on for quiet time especially in the 30+ heat. The pool/lake side was busier as it is open until 11pm and gets full sun in the morning and early afternoon. It was also very nice to have access to bbqs and picnic tables for easy meals. Great walking path along the lake with easy access. The “private” beach is not really a beach but there are plenty of great public beaches close by. I recommend going to Sun-Oka or Ska Ha in Pentiction for the best beaches, water and sand. Parking underground was nice to have access to as it kept our vehicle cool in the heat. This place is pricy in the summer as that’s when they make their money so expect resort prices. Overall we definitely recommend it.

We stayed as a couple in a studio suite. It was perfectly comfortable and had a full kitchen (so great for making breakfast), but next time I would pay the extra for a one bedroom suite just to get a little more room.

The suite was clean and well-appointed. Everything worked as it should. The Covid safety protocols in place were reassuring.

The location of the resort is terrific - right on the lake, and plenty of great walks all around the lakeshore and up the hill towards the town of Summerland.

Third time staying here. My previous visit was 10 years ago and the cleanliness, quality of service and relaxed atmosphere hasn’t changed. The room was a self catering type and making my own breakfast whilst travelling gives me great comfort. A visit to the grocery store is fun. I look forward to staying again.

WOW this resort is on another level, we didn't want to leave! Our room was incredibly clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything (including cookware). You can tell the safety and comfort of the guests and staff is the #1 priority, without compromising the feeling of being on vacation. The hotel staff had many activities available for all age groups ranging from campfire s'mores to boat rentals. The pool is beautiful and the hotel is right on the lake, it is such a scenic spot. There is an adorable cafe right within the hotel that serves home cooked breakfast and lunch, all of their food is delicious. There is so much to explore within Summerland and Penticton as well. We can't wait to return!

What a gorgeous resort! This beautiful hotel is perfect for families. There are lots of activities to do from swimming to paddle boarding, crafting to campfires. Our favourite spot was the pool. The facilities were very well maintained and exceptionally clean. Our suite was very nice and well appointed. The beds were amazingly comfortable. We enjoyed dinners on our deck especially on the nights when there was live music playing. Select your room carefully as some rooms have better views than others and are in quieter locations. We very much enjoyed suite 526 which had lake views and was on the quieter side of the resort.

While we had far away plans to celebrate my sister’s 50th, Covid struck so we had to stay a bit more local and decided Summerland Resort was the perfect alternative for us. It did not disappoint! The resort is perfect for everyone (families, couples, friend groups) with everything you need — great rooms, ridiculously comfortable beds, a heated pool, fitness facility and even a spa! The staff is wonderful, and they are taking obvious care in keeping the place clean and sterilized in light of Covid. We felt very safe and very well taken care of. This is the perfect getaway destination, and we can’t wait to get back!

A wonderful get a way from Vancouver! The hotel is in an idyllic location on Okanagan Lake. Our room was spacious and had a view of the water. The kitchen was well stocked with gadgets for cooking, if you wanted, although the Cove restaurant attached to the hotel is excellent! We also took in a spa pedicure which was icing on our cake

Our three-generation family experience was excellent. Other relations gathering at the same time said they wished they had booked with the resort.

Staff service was outstanding … especially reservations (phone support for out of province calls), and front desk. Provision of infant packNplay reduced our carry-ons substantially.

The 1 bedroom suite plus loft plus adjoining grandparent room served 6 adults and three pre-school children well: it gave us a variety of locations for kids’ early bedtimes while adults visited.

The amenities indoors and out were great. Kids loved
the pool and hot tub; adults enjoyed sauna and beach and walking paths. We walked daily to nearby splash pad and climbing structures. The beds were very comfortable. We would have used the complimentary grills had we not had multiple reunion gatherings.

Our third floor rooms and balconies overlooked the lakeshore and
cornered onto the restaurant but
noise was not an issue.

The resort is not inexpensive. However the experience is commensurate with the cost.

As Gucci once said: quality is remembered long after price is forgotten.

It was our first time in Kelowna and we have no idea where to stay, which are to go to with so many choices! We saw Summerland on 3rd party websites, the price is good but when I checked their brand website they even have a great offer 2+1 so we ended up booking directly via phone. I spoke to Karla who was very patient with all my questions, she put me on hold when she has a guests which was fine and came back to me and very patient answering my questions. On arrival, we were checked in by Micah, nice guy too, he also lent us a laptop charger for the whole stay as my husband needs it. We looked for shops that could sell us a charger but none in Walmart where we stopped on the way to the resort. Karla also asked what type of wine do we prefer which was a very nice touch to get a cold wine on arrival. I chose White and it was sooo good that I asked to buy on departure. We also asked for late check out as I was cooking and not enough time to clean up and they granted us our request :). By the way, the kitchen is fully equipped! only thing missing was a peeler, but it was manageable with the knife. I cooked everyday, oven, stove top, we did not use microwave so I did not try that and used the dishwasher also. Very convenient and clean and nice utensils and plates, pots and pans. Very homey, can see a long term stay in the Studio. How we wish we booked the lakefront view. On departure, as I loved the white wine, I asked to buy it and Flo from reception just gave it for us free! Thank you so much for a short but relaxing stay! We were driving all over Kelowna, made a look from downtown Kelowna to Vernon and back to Summerland. We are glad, we stayed here for its price and location! Unbeatable! We even wen to Oosoyos on our way back to Vancouver and top choice will be this resort on our next stay!. Thank you once again.

I know that they have kids programs that run through out each day in July and August. 5 year olds are just fine with them. Activities vary daily. They offer a schedule at the Front Desk so you can refer to that to find out which program she would like to go to. Hope that helps!
