We stayed with a large group and had a 3 bedroom townhouse directly beside the pool and playground (Unit 31). The unit was very clean, fragrance free, well stocked, and very modern. The beds and linens were comfortable, black-out curtains would have been very appreciated, and a/c would improve the experience, but we did get okay sleeps. Our location by... More

Our family was delighted with our condo. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need and very clean. The bedrooms were spacious and well stocked with extra linens. We were here during a heat wave and, although there was no air conditioning they provided many fans to help cool the rooms down in the evening. The beach access path... More

Enjoyed our clean one bedroom condo. Had a comfortable bed and plenty of linen. Wished that each condo had their own BBQ and the wifi worked better. The private beach was very quiet and beautiful, it is a little bit of a hike up and down the bank to the ocean, not recommended for problems walking.

The Ocean Trails Resort was well appointed, only minutes from the beach, accessed by some steep stairs. The resort offers a swimming pool, a 5 minute walk to the mini golf with 2 courses (Lagoon Golf and Mountain Golf). If you only have time for one, I recommend Mountain Golf, if you get a hole in one on the last... More

My boyfriend and I rented a 2 bedroom condo on the lower level for 1100/month, which includes internet, cable, local calls, house keeping, pool and hot tube. Super cheap! We stayed here from mid October-end of May. Staffs were excellent, they accommodated to everything we wanted. Housekeepers and yard maintenance are always working hard, our rooms were spotless and upkeep... More

I rented a one bedroomed unit for a few months during the winter, the rates were excellent and included Internet, TV, a phone for local calls, hydro and gas for the cosy 'log' fire. Basic housekeeping every 2 weeks, a good kitchen and all linens towels etc. Even a washer/dryer tucked away in the bathroom. The Reception, housekeepers and the... More

The three-bedroom unit we rented at Ocean Trails proved to be well above expectation. There were large bedrooms for each of the three couples staying there — and the master suite on the second level was huge. The kitchen is well-equipped and includes a large dining table. A family could stay at the resort for an extended period with no... More

I had the opportunity to visit here with a group of 3 friends on two occasions and in both cases our stay was exemplary. The townhouses are large, beautifully maintained and very clean. The second time we came we were not happy with the unit they gave us and they immediately gave us another unit. The pool and hot tub... More

Our group of 5 did a one night stay passing through....very comfy beds and great location...easy wander down to the beach. Was lovely and quiet when we stayed but this may be compromised in summer ...it would be a great spot for young families.

Stayed in a 3 bedroom townhouse with 6 adults and 2 young kids. The space was more than adequate for all of us. It's a pretty high density resort, but it didn't feel too cramped. Free BBQs at the front for use, or you could pay $10 to rent one to take back to the unit. Beach access is not... More
