We spent the last weekend in March/1st in April (30 March - 1 April) at Semiahomoo. While we had high hopes, we were disappointed. We had to change rooms as the HVAC failed in our first room (loudly starting at 1:30 am) ticking and clicking repeatedly in the middle of the night, the WIFI was not functional the entire weekend (which is not a big deal unless you are trying to work remotely, as was the case with my spouse) and we had a very mixed experience dining: brunch was fine but dinner was terrible with 3 meals returned due to being so over cooked that they could not be consumed and the replacements were the same. The staff was friendly and nice. We had one meal comp'd and were given a "free" breakfast. But, I have to say that a night without sleep due to a poorly maintained room and marginal dining options are not really covered by $50.

So, vacationer be aware. The setting is lovely, which is the doing of nature. The staff is very friendly. But, the facility is taxed and marginally maintained and the on-site dining options are touch and go. I would suggest coming without the expectation of being on-line, finding other spots to dine (not on-site) and being ok with older rooms that may or may not be clean but that have very nice views.

We spent a lovely 3 day weekend at Semiahmoo. Even Mother Nature cooperated by providing pretty decent weather. A highlight was Phil's bird watching tour that's offered at 2 pm on Saturdays - very informative and very interesting. He has an amazing telescope that he sets up for novices to look through. It's definitely a place for families (including the 4-legged friends), which means the place is busy during the day. But, kids go to bed early, so it's quiet in the evening. The pet units tend to be on the ground floor. So, if you're allergic to or not keen on 4-legged friends, you may want to ask for a room NOT on the ground floor. When we had a couple of minor issues, the staff were very prompt and professional in rectifying the issue. A wonderful gem of a place.

Room Tip: ocean front rooms with a deck are delightful

Semiahmoo Resort and Spa was the perfect getaway for us! We can't say enough about all there is to do; golf, spa, beach walk, fitness facilities, tennis, pickle ball, nightly bonfire and so much more. The atmosphere is relaxing and casual but the food and service quality are exceptional. A bonus for us was the ability to bring our dog along to have as much fun as we did! This was our first visit to Semiahmoo and we are already trying to find time to go back again soon!

Great location with lots to do.You can't get a better view (if you are oceanside). We have been coming for years and love the place. Kids have a blast in the pool and at the beach. Pub is excellent with great staff.

Excellent stay, very well maintained property. Location right on the beach, with easy access from border; trails, bike rentals, great pub and restaurant, and most of all perfect spa. Awesome service. Good for families, couples, friends, groups.

Room Tip: Ocean view right in front of sitting area on the beach can be noisy in the summer.
