We spent 2 days here in July. You must stay in the tents. It is an incredible experience to just relax for a couple days. We did a few hours of kayaking which i highly recommend. The wine selection could be improved for the quality of the venue. Also the beds need to be improved for the $$ you pay.

Although we felt this resort was very overpriced by even Vancouver standards. We very much enjoyed our stay and were very impressed by the quality of the staff and service provided by them this weekend

Very disapointed in this property. Beautiful tenthouses but the cabins are to be desired for the money. Kids running around on the boardwalks, babies crying down below. I thought this area was for lovers. During a massage a massive plane arrived in the cove and had to stop and clear the fuel smell from the tents on the ocean, no... More

If the rooms were $100 less, I wouldn't complain. But they call themselves a resort and charge you way too much1 for a crappy room and lazy service. We stayed in the lodge, the room isn't any better than a cheap motel. Old decor, small TV, wifi access that you have to re-activate every hour, broken glass on the floor... More

Rockwater Secret Cove Resort was a very relaxing get away. We had 7 days in the area, we spent the first 3 in Vancouver, a day of ambling about and 3 days on the Sunshine Coast. The views from the hotel were amazing. We stayed in the main building by the pool, I'd recommend a tent if you can get... More

Loved our stay in the Tent House Suite. Beautiful spot for a getaway. We enjoyed feeling close to nature while still having access to all sorts of amenities. Would definitely go back for another visit!

I picked the Rockwater due to it having couples massages, and also its great website that made it look extremely luxurious, and expected a pampered and Zen like atmosphere. We arrived at the front desk and it was chaotic with an ongoing wedding setup, but what I assume was the manager lead us to the massuses for our couples massage... More

My new husband and I went here for the first two days of our honeymoon and it was amazing. We ate every meal we could on our private porch in our tenthouse suite (Number 56 was the perfect tent). The food was delicious, the room service was great. We didn't want to leave. The bath is to die for and... More

Went for a wedding, the hotel is very expesive for what u get,perhaps the cottages or tents ar better. We had no room cleaning on day two which would have been nice, at $400 a night. My deposit was lost which was quite a financial shock. Shop around!!!

Overall good experience. There were a few lights that needed to be replaced in our tenthouse, which we let staff know about on two occasions but they were never replaced during our two night stay. My fiancé forgot his toothbrush and the charge for a personal kit is $1.75 ...for the cost per night, I think rockwater can afford to... More
