Myself and two daughters visited the spa last week. This was my first time doing the hydropath but have had massages there before. Our experience with the hydropath was interesting. Actually enjoyed this. Only 2 of us did a massage. Mine was extremely good as I have had a lot of hip pain and the masseuse did reflexology and my... More

Dear travel142014, Thank you so much for bringing your daughters for a well-deserved spa day. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your spa treatments and your meals at the Breakwater Restaurant. The Ling Cod is delicious, isn't it? At the Kingfisher, we are all about the "experience", and it sounds like you had a great one with us! Thank... More

The Kingfisher Spa has been there for years but this was the first time I've actually been in. My husband and I were given gift certificates for the Hydropath and lunch so we used it on my birthday, a little early day getaway while the kids were at school. Having no idea what to expect I did a little reading... More

We had the first reservation of the morning Saturday, December 27 at the hydropath spa, highly anticipating a repeat of our first time visit in June 2013, when we enjoyed an invigorating/relaxing, therapeutic experience. Sadly, there was no repeat. Initially, all was fine until entering the steam room which cold because it had not been preheated...we sat in a cold... More

Dear Jean L, Thank you for feedback regarding your experience at the Hydropath this Holiday Season. I do apologize on behalf of the Spa for your less than steamy steam bath and for the jet malfunction in the mineral bath.

My husband and I recently went for a much needed R&R for an evening. Never been there and heard its world renowned only to find it average-the rooms were ok considering the price for $120 for an ocean view room -the restaurant was nice-food was excellent and priced moderatley-service was very good-portions are "art on a plate"-Wine is VERY expensive...

Dear Mrs S, Thank you for staying with us at the Kingfisher. I am very happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us.

We are on a bit of an extended trip. This is the 5th hotel so far. To visit online it seemed like paradise. This place specializes in spa treatments and gourmet foods. It is just 8 km. from Courtenay itself. We checked in but the desk clerk was more interested in shuffling her papers than attending to us. I repeated... More

We booked in for 2 nights as part of the New Year's Eve package. We really enjoyed the NYE dinner. The Breakwater restaurant was beautiful and the food was excellent. We went the next morning for their famous brunch and it was pricy, but worth it. The service and food were great! We stayed in the Eagle suite and it... More

Due to unexpected circumstances we had to bring our old quiet clean dog with us for our New Years stay at Kingfisher which cost us an extra $50 for the two nights.

I was excited to return to the Kingfisher, having had an exceptional experience upon my first visit. Let's be clear…..I was there for a ladies getaway which was wonderful. The location is superb, and have always stayed Oceanfront. The sound of the lapping ocean, cool, crisp ocean breeze in our rooms, watching the waves from our ground floor balcony….true tranquility.... More

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.
