Stayed at Poet's Cove August 13 thru 16th of 2015. When my husband and I had our first view we were delighted. The place is beautiful! Then we moved in and were disappointed. It seems the resort was purchased 2 years ago by a man who made his fortune by importing German auto parts to China. How that qualifies anyone... More

This was a tough one to review. We stayed here recently with our family of four, including our two high school age daughters. The two bedroom cottage (#1 I think) was fantastic. The nicest place we stayed in the gulf islands. A perfect set-up with twin beds in the second bedroom, comfortable pillows and beds, two lovely bathrooms with heated... More

Took a friend into the pub for a drink. We decided to sit at the bar, the entire length of the bar was dirty. So when I sat down in front of a dirty glass, a used toothpick, and some tip money, I figured it would be cleared away. Nope, just the tip money. I sat there paying $11 a... More

We stayed overnight in a king-sized room on the weekend and we were very impressed with the resort and its facilities. The room overlooking the marina was really lovely -very clean, well appointed and having a roomy deck to sit out and enjoy the scenery made it very special. The resort has many great facilities including a full service spa,... More

Great hotel. Comfortable beds with a great balcony overlooking the cove. Had lunch at the pub attached to hotel. Food was good and service was great. The small market by the family pool had good coffee but is seriously lacking in atmostphere. Potential to be much better.

I was part of a party of four who attended a wedding on August 8. This wedding had been booked for many months. We reserved a two bedroom villa which had a great view of the harbour. (I understand that most of the units are also time share as they are fully equipped, etc.) The management and staff were completely... More

I'm reviewing this resort on behalf of my elderly parents, ages 88 and 89, who enjoyed a wonderful weekend there recently. Here is what they told me: "Everything was just perfect for us. The staff treated us so well and looked after our every need. They are so attentive and kind. Our room was spacious, clean and lovely, with our... More

Was staying in a private cottage just up the road. Wandered down with my wife to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun and admire the fine view. Couldn't quite work out why Hanson's Mmmbop was being blared out ..... A bit more 'Poet' and less of the 'Resort' and this could be a decent place.

This was my third visit to Poets Cove, just as the two visits before I was greeted with smiles from the helpful front desk staff. My wife and I were the first arrivals of our 50 friends and family. This put a heavy workload on the housekeeping staff to turn over enough rooms for us as the previous night was... More

I should begin by saying that I briefly worked at this beautiful resort 6 years ago, and fell in love with the place. When I got engaged I knew it was the perfect venue to host an intimate 3 day celebration in a spectacular setting. I worked with the staff for over a year, and certainly patience was required as...
