We were only going to be an hour at the pool area so the manager (Paul) gave us the evening rate which was super. The kids had a wonderful time. Thanks to Shirley who recommended we go there. Thanx to all the staff who are very friendly. Will be back

If you like a campground type environment, but like a more comfy place to stay, look no further. We stayed 3 nights near the end of June in a studio suite with 2 double beds. It was actually one of four units in a small townhouse like cabin. It was quite clean considering it is a cabin style accommodation. There... More

We booked a room for one night. The room was described as two queens with a private patio, along with free wifi and DVD, kitchen with fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We asked for a room "away from noisy areas as we are light sleepers". When we checked in, our room (#18) was directly across from the campground public showers... More

I was taking a mini vacay away from the concrete jungle and everything was booked in the Nanaimo area. I lucked out and was able to find a room in Qualicum Beach at the Riverside Resort; someone had just cancelled - and much to my surprise, I was given a townhouse for a very decent price. Upon arrival, the service... More

Our family stayed here for camping and it is quite a good value for the price. I cannot comment on the motel rooms what they are like, but for the camping there are three different types of sites. Full hookup sites, partial hookup sites and tenting sites. We were at a tent sight, where you get a picnic table and... More

We have been visiting the resort in the summer for the past several years. And really noticed a difference since last year (in the past the place had a terrible reputation & was very rundown). We took friends from out of town a few weekends ago & were pleasantly surprised with even more improvements. Freshly painted buildings, beautiful hanging baskets... More

My husband and I were in the Qualicum area for family reasons and needed a place to stay. We booked this place because the price was great and it had good reviews on trip advisor. It is definitely a two star place so I rated it with that in mind - don't expect luxury here. Pretty clean, and rooms are... More

We live close to this resort & drive past it daily & had noticed that the grounds were looking cleaner, even small things like hanging flower baskets made a big difference. We had family coming to visit from out of town & were looking for a place for them to stay. I stopped in at the resort to have a... More
