We spent three days there. We had a RV site and one of their two bedroom cabins. It was better than I originally thought it would be but not a 5 star rating. The cabins were very small, hot and dated. You sat outside in a grassy court yard environment looking into all the other cabins and visa versa. No... More

Had stayed here 3 times in years past. Called today to make a reservation for next weekend. Miscalculated and had to cancel the reservation only two hours after making it - they're charging me $25. Big mistake phoning them today. Because of that, the $25 will be the last of my money they'll ever get and I'm telling as many... More

I can’t say enough about what a lovely venue Riverside is for a group occasion. 15 years ago my wife and I sponsored a family reunion here and a few weeks ago my daughter was married here. The immaculate cabins surround a large grassy area. Within that is a permanently covered huge barbeque and tables for working and serving or... More

Booked a "studio suite with two queen beds" for three nights. Definitely not a suite, a very old room, no electrical outlet in the bathroom for my wife to use her hair dryer and curling iron (no mirror anywhere else in the room), and long black hairs in one of the beds. We weren't too happy and went to talk... More

Showed up late at the end of a long day, even though they were about to close up for the night, they were very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed, bringing us an extra picnic table and axe to chop wood. Great spot!

I chose to spend my 50th birthday at the Riverside Resort because my family and I have spent so much time there over the years. I confirmed our plans over the phone with Jenna but on our arrival the reservation and set up we planned were not possible. I was extremely disappointed but we all worked together to find a... More

We needed a place to stay in Qualicum and chose the best value and was SO surprised to see our room for the price. A 39 or 40 inch flat screen TV, fast internet and a full kitchen for under $90. The place was very clean, including the grounds. They had a little store on the property with friendly staff... More

Visited with friends and family here. Lots of fun things for the kids to do with the pools, water slide and mini golf all on site. Friendly staff and great rooms. Also lots of room to camp. Close walk to the ocean and a number of restaurants. Would recommend staying here to everyone!!!

Riverside Resort is a fantastic spot to stay when visiting Vancouver Island. The cabins and rooms are clean and modern, with all necessary amenities. The rates are extremely reasonable, particularly during the off-season. The Resort is only a short walk to the beach, and a 5 minute drive to Qualicum town centre. If you're thinking of going to Parksville, it... More
