We come to the island 1-2 times a year to visit family but rarely are we tourists in the area. We purchased an exceptional deal thru travelzoo to stay at the kingfisher for 5 nights and we are so glad we did. When we first checked in we were greeted by Mykel who made us feel welcome right off the... More

We returned to this property last week, our third stay to take advantage of Rainy Day package. Great value for sure. We enjoyed our beach front suite (highly recommend). The kitchenette was very handy for quick breakfasts and coffee in our room as well as a fridge to keep fixings on hand to take lunch along for our planned biking... More

We recently stayed at the Kingfisher in Courtney,BC and we're not in the least bit impressed with resort. It looks like they've made a really poor attempt to revamp a very tired looking resort.all the wires hanging from the tv and fake fireplace looked really shoddy. A small effort could have made a difference. The sour cream in the fridge... More

My husband's comment is 'smiley people.' It was really neat to be surprised by this great accommodation so near my cousin's. We had a swim and then our nearby family visit and then had a great rest.

Just returned from a lovely night at this Resort. Management was very obliging in organizing of a birthday party and the party room was perfect. The staff are very attentive in trying to meet your needs. There are a few things that stop this from being a 5 star resort. 3 trips to the lobby and we still only had... More

We booked a waterfront suite and it was worth the extra$$. We had a very comfortable and clean room and would have been more than happy to stay well beyond our 3 days. We used the (included) salt water pool (no chlorine smell!)/hot tub/sauna every day as well as a Hydropath spa session. My wife and I are morning coffee... More

This is a fantastic spot to visit if you're ever in the area. Living in a nearby town, I've never had the luxury of spending a night here, but as a day spa this place is amazing. Today I did a mother-daughter trip with my mom, and we experienced both the hydropath and full-body massages. Previously, we've both had the... More
