Great resort in the perfect area for some peace and quiet. Kathy on the front desk was very helpful. Good queen bed, although it could have used a mattress cover. Kitchen had everything you could want to make beans on toast or a roast dinner! It was all good and we will definitely go again.

We stayed mid-week in a two bedroom townhouse on the beach. In fact our family rented three all together and what a great time we had. Although the weather wasn't perfect... it really didn't matter. We were all together, no driving involved, we could make our own meals ... it was perfect. A few notes: These units are individually owned... More

My last review of the Madrona was not too flattering but thanks to updating of the units, this is back on our can't wait to go back list. The location really can't be beat. Rathtrevor Beach is breath taking and safe. From the resort you can get to other great locations easily. We love using the BBQ after shopping at... More

We were very pleased with our accommodation - our unit was on top of the hill, a fairly easy walk away from the beach and it had a large and well equipped kitchen, with appliances in excellent condition and a large size dining area. We found a golf course to our liking just a five minute drive away. We had... More

We are back at Madrona Beach. Second stay at this place in three years. We have stayed at other places along Resort Drive but prefer Madrona for its proximity to the beach and views from the units. Stayed again in the lower unit on the ridge. Price was a bit higher this time as its was in mid August and... More

11 adults and 4 children under the age of 5 recently gathered at the Madrona Beach Resort. Each family had a one bedroom, one bathroom with living area and balcony unit. We stayed in the studio unit. The studio unit has a full kitchen with oven, dishwasher and large fridge. Not all of the one bedrooms have ovens, some do.... More

We have stayed here five times in the last 20 years. The condos are not luxurious: no dishwashers, no pool. The one bedrooms on the ridge are a walk up from the beach. There is one asphalt tennis court. But the place is great for families, and what makes it special is the view of the ocean from the rooms,... More

We have been coming to Parksville for 20 years on an annual family summer vacation. The first 15 years we stayed at Ocean Trails and the last five we have come to Madrona. Ocean Trails is newer and overall the suites and property are in better condition than Madrona. Ocean Trails has a wading pool and whirlpool as well.The advantage... More

We always enjoy our breaks at Madrona with the spectacular view of sunrise and low tides at Rathtrevor beach from the apartments. This time we stayed in Ocean View studio suite which we actually preferred to the 1 bedroom suite as there was a full kitchen which meant we could stay inside and keep warm and still enjoy the view...
