Thank heavens that our stay at Tigh-Na-Mara was only for one night! It is an older facility that needs many updates. Our room was so hot that we couldn't sleep. Even though we had a fan furnished in our room, there was no way to cool it down to a comfortable temp. (The outdoor temp. was in the mid-80s during... More

that would be my memory. I choose this resort mainly because the website promise kids free activities daily without parents supervision ( if kid is over 6) In 3 days there we did not see any action even when we consulted the schedule flier. Moreover, many of the activities were paid; therefore we ended up going to mini golf every... More

Booked as a group with two other families and treated to non-stop construction noise from 9 -5 pm...circular saws and all. No warning on check-in, no apologies from front staff and no offers to make it better for us until we made multiple calls. Atrocious customer service! They used to make a real effort for families but clearly not anymore.

Whilst other reviews might be very good staying in one of the beach side rooms in Gabriola could ruin you holiday at present To be woken around 7 by rip saws and staple guns is not on. No air con in upper rooms so like a furnace during the day and difficult to sleep at night when there is a... More

From the rooms to the spa to the restaurant everything was perfect. We were in the new castle building which had it's own patio, was very quiet and had easy access to the spa. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The spa was wonderful because of the staff. We definitely will go back.

Check this place out if you are in parksville it's defineatly worth it. Tans kitchen is a really good Chinese restaurant in town too. Close to a really nice beach too where it's really really good swimming.

Absolutely wonderful location nestled in the tall woods and a mere 5 minute walk down to the ocean. We stayed in a king suite log cabin and I can't honestly mention anything that we may have required to enhance our stay. Huge bed, gigantic jetted tub and a step away from the Spa. If you want to spend some time... More

We stayed for one night in a 'deluxe' suite on the top floor. From our glass-fronted balcony we had absolutely wonderful views of the bay and it looked incredibly unspoilt. This was a pleasant surprise as I had read that this part of the coastline was somewhat overdeveloped. When you see the vast sandy beach fringed by pine trees, with... More

We stayed in one of the duplex cabins. 2 minute walk to the beach. As you walk through the resorts forest, there is a wonderful heady scent of cedar. Best place to stay in the area! The beach is amazing! Warm and crystal clear.
