We went to Madrona Beach Resort this past weekend. Check in was easy. They had emailed us in advance a lock code as the office closed at 5pm. We arrived before the office was closed so it wasn't needed. Found the front desk staff really efficient and friendly. Stayed in a one bedroom suite. The kitchen was really clean and... More

We have stayed at this resort many times before, over the years. Most of the units are privately owned, so you cannot book a specific unit ahead of time. We were assigned this one a couple of days before our arrival. Unit #1 is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom townhouse at the south end of the Beach Level units. It is farthest... More

This resort is the closest place to the fabulous Rathtrevor Beach. It is a condo rental unit with 2 bedrooms,a kitchen with all necessary amenities, fireplace, BBQ, tennis courts and great walking trails. It is very close to Qualicum and Coombs for great shopping and hiking areas.

It’s all so dreary. I have waited for the courtesy of a reply to my letter from Madrona Resort before commenting on this site. I believe they were due respect to allow them to sort this unfortunate episode. With their reply in hand, I can now with a clear conscience present this review. It should be noted that Madrona isn't... More

This is my third visit at Madrona and like all the other guests at this resort the ocean view is spectacular. In addition you are either just next to the beach or a short walk depending which unit you rent. The resort is very well kept and very private. We love it here.

These smart-looking townhouses (with wood burning fireplaces) are literally right on the beach. No other accommodation in Parksville can really make this claim-although some do. The units are spotless and the grounds are well kept. We've stayed here twice and found the serenity and quiet wonderfully de-stressing. It's not a full service hotel with room service,swimming pool etc just a... More

Saving grace - incredible location, but this property continues to deteriorate badly year after year it continues to slide downhill. Very dirty. Old beds. Not vacuumed. Ripped sheets. Poorly maintained, service mediocre, not modernized. Much better alternatives in the area with great beach locations, better rates in much better condition. Don't book this property and leave frustrated feeling ripped off... More

This is our third visit as a family. My wife has been here numerous times with her sisters. We had two units, one beachfront and one one bedroom upland unit. The upland unit is a little dated with a single unit kitchenette with a built in fridge, stove sink unit. It works but don't plan any gourmet cooking. Luckily you... More

My wife and I just celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary up at Madrona Beach Resort. This was our second visit to the resort and we will return in September. This little resort offers everything that my wife and I require for a trip to Parksville. Firstly, the location is great, near the heart of Parksville and next to Rathtrevor Beach... More

My family has come here for several years, staying in one of the beach units. The view is amazing and it's nice having the beach right out the door. The units could use some updating, but overall it's still a great experience.
