We had a very pleasant three nights here and for the value we would definitely return. The rooms are basic, but I can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel that was this clean. The property is very well maintained and we loved the seclusion of the location by the ocean. We also found the staff to be... More

I like the simplicity of this place and the thought and care put into the environment, such a peaceful place. I really like the library, I have stayed here many times and always leave with a few book purchases. I have a lot of allergies and I was not bothered at all at this Resort, the soaps were all natural... More

This place has a nice vibe, and the location is amazing. The rooms are just OK, and the walls are a little thin. There just never seems to be anyone at the front desk so the service is lacking a little. It is a good value if you can get a room for $100 or less.

Sounds like the previous discontented post came from someone here at Ocean for part of the same time-frame as me, but certainly from another perspective. This is my 2nd consecutive summer at Ocean for this Retreat Event, coming early and staying late both times - I can hardly believe the words I'm reading, with my experience the complete opposite!

I highly recommend Ocean Resort for a special get away, I took part in a Women Retreat with my best friend and had the most amazing time! We started our stay with a heavenly Hot Stone Massage at the all natural spa, (highly recommend!) The therapists are highly educated on health & wellness. The Retreat Center is so welcoming, calming,... More

No Air Conditioning should definitely be mentioned when booking. It is not secure to sleep with windows open and uncomfortably warm if acclimated to A/C. They did give me a box fan with the ineffective personal fan after sitting in lobby. No lock on screen for sliding door. If coming for retreat, mandated to buy an expensive meal plan which... More

Thank you for your recent comments. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your recent stay. As you stated we do not have A/C in our rooms. Due to our mild climate most of the year heat is not a problem for most guests. For the meal plan there are a few pricing structures. The retreat you were in... More

Back property was great for relaxing. Ocean view, quiet, lots of sitting area with several chairs, benches, swings, etc. rooms were fairly basic but clean. Could use some ac for the summer months. Friendly staff with a nice little local shop incorporated into the lobby area.

Not the getaway I was expecting. Cramped rooms with limited services. However if you are looking for a cheap getaway this is the place. Bright rooms, poor ventilation and situated roadside this is not the luxury retreat some people have purported it to be. Not sure why it is ranked at number 2 in Campbell River as there are better...
