Sounds like the new owners will be micromanaging our favorite resort/marina. Our family and friends have been going to Poets since they opened. We have always enjoyed the activities available for the children as well as the adults. One of our favorite adult activities has been the steam cave and hot tub located outside of the Spa. Back in the... More

We traded into the Poet's Cove at a cottage through the Registry Collection. Originally, we did it because our friends were coming with us and had a dog they didn't want to leave at home. This was the only resort we could find that had accommodations for pets. So we booked it for the second week in December. Our friends... More

Thank you so much for the kind words in your review! I think that you really hit a great point with your comments about the time of year to visit the resort. In the slower season it can be a little quiet around here but it leaves lots of time for relaxation without the crowds of the summer. If you... More

Ate at the outdoor restaurant twice and both times the food was excellent. We visited the spa and steam cave and it was wonderful The second time we came through... More

We were docked at the local marina and went to the bar in this resort. The staff were very friendly, there was a roaring fire and we were made very welcome. The first night was rather rowdy due to some young drunks enjoying Canadian Thanksgiving, the second evening much quieter and more enjoyable. We thought the prices a little high.... More

Spent a night at Poet's Cove earlier this month while visiting our beautiful daughter on Pender Island. It was our second experience at the resort. I'm not sure why I didn't review last year so I committed to doing so this year. We love this place. The surroundings are some of the most beautiful in the world. The service is... More

Four of us were in a cottage, which was great. We rented the hotels van for an hour and had our own cookout at the cottage. The cottage was well equiped. The... More

Spa treatment was the best I ever had, thanks to Justyna :) Enjoyed breakfast and dinner in the dining room,... More

The setting is beautiful. The resort is nestled into a small cove and feels very remote. In fact, there are usually deer grazing on the grounds in the early morning. The resort itself is very nice, well maintained and the service was great. My only complaint would be the food in the pub (we did not dine in the dining... More

The setting is gorgeous, though a bit removed, if you aren't a boater, from the other interesting parts of the island. The rooms are nice, but ours, at least, showed signs of beginning to be a little worn--loose wallpaper edges in bathroom for example. Very clean. The air conditioning absolutely did not work. the unit said very clearly that it... More
