I was lucky enough to spend the weekend at this resort with my daughter who won a two night stay including whale watching,massages,brunch and dinner. The staff were so friendly and attentive to us,especially Anna at the front desk who treated us as if we were royalty. Although our meals were to be in the Aroura restuarant, the new property...

Ugly. We will never stay at this hotel again! The room temp is 85 degrees at 10:45 pm. They say they used to have a heat pump that provided AC but they took it out. Nothing to replace it though. For $269 a night you would expect a comfortable room.

We stayed at Poets Cove for three nights for a conference recently - first time on Pender Island! The property was beautiful, well-maintained and with amazing views. And the staff were really fantastic. From the ladies at the cafe where I got my delicious latte every morning to the servers who let me get take out from the pub the... More

This is a visual Paradise with the main hotel accommodation on a very steep hill. This could cause some consternation for those with mobility issues since the car park is up a very steep incline. and about 100 metres away. Although Hotel staff were pleasant, I felt that the receptionists were poorly trained, spending 20 minutes at check-out due to... More

At Poets Cove we rented a cottage on the hillside behind the inn (#9) and were graciously housed in a charming 2 bedroom home with full kitchen, outstanding bed and... More

This is my first time writing a review but I felt I needed to commend Poets Cove on a job well done saving our wedding and making it a spectacular event that our guests can't stop talking about. Firstly, for the past year in the lead up to our wedding we had been having nothing but trouble trying to contact... More
