We only live 20 minutes from the resort, but it still feels like a vacation. The resort is waterfront and all rooms have an ocean-view. This particular visit my husband and I stayed 2 nights in a standard ocean view room. I was very pleased with the updates to the room. The bathroom was beautiful and the beds were firm... More

Dear Canuck31, Thank you so much for your review of the resort. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us, and were able to enjoy the many amenities we offer.

The beds were hard and uncomfortable and in need of replacing. For the price, there are way better places to eat in Courtenay. Won't go back until they upgrade a bit. Waste off money for a place that used to be amazing.

Without making a reservation, we drove by after participating in a ceremonial sweatlodge nearby and decided to stay there. We ended up in a suite with a jacuzzi, 2 bathrooms, all around windows with a stunning view over the ocean, a kitchenette, a fire place, a bedroom and room service. The staff was friendly, accommodating and helpful. The hydropath is... More

We stayed here one night while attending a family event neaby. We were too busy with that to use the spa, but from what I saw poking around the area, it looks very nice. We had a delicious breakfast in the restaurant and 2 peaceful nights. The off season rate was very reasonable for the basic room. It was clean... More

A way to kick back and relax with my lady friends. The rooms, grounds and view are absolutely stunning. We took a yoga class, then lounged in the hot tub, steam cave and heated pool.

I just had an opportunity to have a night away from my 3 young children to stay with my girlfriends at The Kingfisher Resort & Spa. We stayed in an oceanfront suite on the ground level with the ocean just steps from our sliding glass door. Breathtaking views! The room was great! We really appreciated the generous sized kitchen table... More

What a HUGE disappointment the KINGFISHER RESPORT & SPA turned out to be. We booked this place to hold our wedding & reception. HUGE mistake. From the very start we encountered rude staff at the front desk, old tired rooms, reservations not held properly & the most disappointing part of all, our wedding reception. What a huge let down.

The Kingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa is a wonderful destination to relax and rejuvenate. Located on the oceanfront in Royston, just a few minutes south of Courtenay, the property faces east and overlooks the amazing Salish Sea. The Coast Mountains of mainland BC are visible on a clear day. Take your binoculars to view the seabirds and sea life. The... More

This is one of those places that had been on my list of places to stay for years and it was the most disappointing experience.

Great location, helpful staff and clean room with bar fridge and plenty of storage. The small bathroom was well stocked with towels and toiletries. Not there for the spa; however, enjoyed a delicious and reasonably priced breakfast that featured local ingredients in the restaurant. Good view from Unit 203, but did not like the deck.
