Washer and dryer in suite, bath tub with jets. Huge kitchen which had everything (dishes, cutlery, pots etc) Staff was very friendly. One... More

This resort has its ups and downs for me. I don't recommend this resort for couples with no children. Our room like most are all centered around the pool. Kids running around everywhere having great time and parents trying to keep them under control ( most parents)which was not relaxing for us. So no privacy outside as people are walking... More

The facility met or exceeded all of our expectations. The SRR is well located, well appointed and generally well run. The pool / hotub are terrific as is the physical layout of the suites (we stayed in a 3 bedroom unit). Everything worked as it was intended to - possible exception being a decided lack of decently sharp knives to... More

Our room had one opening window and door they both opened onto an outside hall way. You could not sleep with them open. The room had a fan but the temp was over 80 degrees F. There was no way to cool it off with out leaving the door or window open. Do to rent a "B" unit the "A"... More

We were part of a wedding in Parksville and the Bride had sent out suggestions for hotels. We chose Sunrise Ridge because the pool looked great. We booked on line and I called the day before to see about early check in. No problem. From start to finish the staff was incredible. So helpful, friendly and warm. Our room was... More

Nice and clean. No restaurant. No ice machine. Close to town. Nice large rooms. This used to be a time share and has been converted. Nice little kitchen in most rooms. Access to a very small and rocky beach.

Good day, Thank you for taking the time to review our accommodations on Trip Advisor. I would like to clarify however that we are not a "converted time share" property. The condo units in our 8 year old complex have always been fractionally or wholly owned, with most taking part in the Rental Program that is currently administered through a... More

We booked very last minute and were able to get a one bedroom suite with a very large balcony facing the front of the resort. The portable AC unit and the fan the resort staff provided was enough to to keep the suite quite cool. The resort pool and the resort overall is very nice and the staff are very... More

I booked this resort specifically because it mentioned that they could arrange tours, which I was keen on, travelling from the UK. When I got there they suggested I looked on the Internet to find a tour. The third staff member I spoke to did know a company that did tours but not for solo travellers. There is no public... More

Hello, Thank you for providing feedback on your stay. I understand that these things must have been frustrating for you. I believe that you had tried to rent a car through one of the local car rental companies, and when you informed them you would be travelling to Horne Lake Caves, they confirmed that they considered this to be "off...

A Resort should make you feel as though you're actually staying at a Resort, and that's just what Sunrise Ridge does. My wife and I recently completed a long-stay at Sunrise Ridge, and have only good things to say about our experience. Our suite was very nicely decorated, with high-end furnishings and artwork, and was fastidiously clean as well. Its... More
