We stayed here with our family will visiting family in the Parksville area. We had a ground level suite that was right facing the pool and a few steps away. Untraditional in a bit f a time share accommodation in that they don't clean your room daily (only upon check-out) but if you need anything just ask and they were... More

My family and I recently spent 5 days at the Sunrise Ridge and it was wonderful. Rooms were nice and comfortable. We had a one bedroom suite with a pull out couch in the living room and both beds were very comfortable. Our suite did not have A/C but we were provided with a fan and temperature was fine even...

We are staying here right now and there is no air flow. It is so hot! I booked a room with AC but did not receive one. Windows open, fans blasting and it is raining outside. Thank god the weather is crappy or we would be dying in this place. Would never stay here again!!

Hello Cindy G, I was surprised to read your review, as there was no indication on your reservation through Booking.com that you had requested air conditioning. The last 2 days have not been hot sunny weather, but still quite warm and extremely humid. This definitely adds to the discomfort. In your review, you mentioned that you requested a room with...

Checked in aug 1 and departed aug 3. Got a partial view of the ocean and stayed in a one bedroom suite that connected with a studio one bedroom suite. The two rooms connected through a small front entrance hallway. The resort grounds were well manicured. The swimming pool was great for the kids. They loved it. The fitness centre... More

My understanding is that this is a time-share resort that is not yet fully sold or constructed. The prices are significantly better than at the nearby resorts, but based on what I saw in friends' units in some of the other resorts, I think that the rooms at the Sunrise Ridge are better equipped. The resort is very much like... More

The family went for a week long vacation to Vancouver Island and enjoyed the stay at the resort. The room was well equipped and didn't lack anything. Sufficient cook-ware and utensils and the BBQ on the patio was clean and worked well, too. The pool was well maintained and clean. Kids had a blast! Little bit of a walk to... More

We looked at every place in the area and this one by far was the nicest. Of course if you want waterfront, they are limited and you'll pay more. The only problem I found with the place was they have all queen beds. But they are new, clean, modern, the outside if manicured and if you don't have to look... More

This resorts rents out rooms that they already know have a problem with being too hot (due to a complete lack of air circulation, I think). So unless you want to pay $175 or more for a bad night's sleep, ask about air conditioning before you stay here. Also, there was a big tear in the window screen and the... More

Had we known about the issues you encountered at the time we would have been happy to address them immediately, or move you to a more comfortable unit if they could not be fixed. I am happy to contact... More
