I loved the beauty of the location. At least one of the two pools was open and it was great to either play at the beach or swim in pool. The waterfall outside our room (310) was awesome!!! The view incredible!!! BUT sadly the lovely room was marred by the filthy desk chair and stained carpets. Thank goodness we brought slippers. The carpets should be replaced with vinyl or tiled flooring. Filtered water system would help take away the strong hard water taste and smell. Other than that. We would return!!!

It's tucked away on the North island almost at the end of the road so to speak so very quiet, very laid back, super friendly staff who are accommodating beyond belief. Made the stay very comfortable and easy, even in Covid times. The view is outstanding from the room we had facing the water and the waterfall feature out front is very soothing to listen too as well. Made me want to stay a few more days it was so relaxing.

Many amenities closed. Most significant was the closed restaurant. Only option was their "bar bistro" which really was an enlarged pool room. The menu was very limited-diner-type-but the cooking was deplorable...fish and chips with an uncooked thick batter (little fish). Second night of stay had to buy-in and cook our own supper. No restaurants nearby.

Amazing view from our lovely room. All the staff were top notch. Chef is excellent. We will be coming back. To note you should make a reservation to catch the Otter Bay to Vancouver ferry. Wonderful escape.
