We had a three night stay booked at this resort, with two rooms with ocean views in the main building. Each room had two queen size beds which meant my husband and I could have had one each while our three teenage kids were squashed into two beds. One of the boys decided he would rather sleep on the floor... More

This is a beautiful location and if you are looking for a nice ocean view and don't care about the room, this location may be for you. I stayed in a room that resembled the old outside entrance 'rowhouse' style with two floors. Although they have attempted to put new bedding and curtains in the room, its definitely a very... More

We stayed in the cabins... the one in front of the septic field. Mistake! There is both the odor and the view is blocked by the whole septic processing station. The cabin is showing it's age - that was noticeable when getting into bed on the far side of the bed. A definite slope of the floor. Can't say how... More

I stayed here for one night this August for a wedding in one of the tent suites. To sum it up it is not worth it when there is new places like the Pointhouse that are close enough (at half the price), and the service/cleaning might be better. Good points: -View is nice -Nice to be located at resort if... More

We had an amazing time at the Rockwater- our tent was better then im imagined- the walk to the tent was enchanting and beautiful. I will say that although our dinner was good chances are I wont eat there again or at the very least will order to my room- the thing I don't love about this place is that... More

Interesting setting on the Sunshine Coast, but not what should be considered a 4.5 star resort. The spot was choosen based on previous reviews and comments are applicable to the main lodge rooms where we had a second floor suite. Great food with good service until things got busy at dinner time. Shared balcony on some rooms which seems to... More

We were fortunate to be invited to this beautiful couples wedding here at the Rockwater, it is a very nice older resort in an awsome location. We were put up in the main building in a good sized double queen room, the bed was super comfy with nice bedding(slept like a baby) could of been the free bar but the... More

I went with my family here for my sisters wedding. They had a tent suite and we rented a couple of the cabins. There were multiple mosquitos flying around inside along with spiders in the shower and plenty of dead bugs along the window ledges. Location was beautiful. Food was good. They did send someone to come clean the room... More

Dear Jake787, Thank you very much for your comments pertaining to your stay dating back to September 2013. It was certainly very unfortunate that the videographer which your sister made arrangements for her Elopment was a no show which we sincerely apologize for. Please note that our Elopment Package does not include the services of a videographer but rather of... More

A lovely little hideaway on BC's Sunshine Coast, in a secluded spot looking west towards Vancouver Island. Breakfast lunch and dinner were all excellent, with a nice selection of fresh seafood dishes. We stayed in one of the older wooden cabins which was absolutely fine: comfortable bed, clean and simple shower room. The more upmarket tents looked excellent. This is... More
