Me and my girlfriend stayed at the resort during the Labour Day weekend. Made a last minute reservation through Expedia and didn't have much choice of selecting suites because there were only 2 left for vacancy at the time. As I read over some of the reviews, I learned that some of the rooms are not equipped with A/C. So... More

We spent the night at Sunrise Ridge in early August. The price was reasonable for the season and the room was adequate in size with a kitchenette and a large bathroom. Our room was on the parking lot side of the property so there was no chance at a view. Being on the parking lot side also meant that the... More

We spent two nights in August at Sunrise Ridge. We were impressed at the quality of the finishings in the rooms - the two bedroom suite we stayed in was large, very clean and comfortable. The pool, which we only dipped our feet in, was deliciously warm and very clean. There is a small workout area just beside pool for... More

We have never been to Parksville and were a little unsure of what to expect. We were blown away. Really easy to find. So much to do... English man Falls, beaches, parks, wildlife recovery centre (only $8 for adults and such a neat place), Coombs market (goats on a roof, 'literally').... I was also surprised to like the beach by...

Room we got was the size of postage stamp not a suite as suggested in the website. We asked if they had a different room and were told that they would get back to us. Never heard from them and had a vacancy sign at the front so one would assume a room was available. We booked thru the trip... More

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!!

Sunrise08, General Manager at Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort, responded to this review

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
