The resort is esthetically beautiful. The landscaping and walkways are wonderful and of course the views are breathtaking. We stayed in the lodge, the room was comfortable although the fireplace was extremely loud. The bathroom sink was plugged so spilled all over the floor even to brush your teeth. The fan in the bathroom was non existent and therefore the... More

For a "much needed get away", my husband and I came here for 4 nights and stayed in one of the tents. The accomodations were wonderful, comfortable bed and the view was spectacular. If you stay in the tents (instead of the cabins or lodge) you'll want to stay in a tent near the end of the boardwalk. Why? More... More

My husband and I booked through BC Ferries Vacations and stayed at the Oceanview room here for two nights at the beginning of April. The room was simple but the beds (yes, two queen beds) were super plush and comfortable. The balcony had seating space so it was really great for us to walk outside in the morning, to enjoy... More

Waking up to the sound of the waves breaking on the shore , in a cozy log cabin, in a stunning environment : it doesn't get any better than this. The food at the restaurant is tasty, delicate and the service is great. I highly recommend this resort for a romantic getaway

My fiance and I wanted to treat ourselves to a nice romantic weekend away for our birthdays and that was just that! We stayed in one of the tent suites close to the water. Everything is well maintained and clean. The view was spectacular. Going to bed watching the sunset and waking up while the sun was rising over the... More

I had my thoughts about sleeping a tent. But it was awesome. Floors are tile and is heated. Bath tub was a deep jacuzzi and the shower was spacious. No TV, but didn't miss it at all. Very quiet area, great view over looking the ocean. Saw my first eagle while enjoying the morning air. Picture of tent attached.

This hotel has unique ocean view if you stay in the tent house. The restaurant is very nice and hotel staffs are very friendly and welcome. We live in a 3-room cabin which is very clean and comfortable. The room is a little bit small but still acceptable for 4 to 5 people. The view from this 3-room cabin is... More

Had a fantastic time at the Secret Cove Resort. Stayed in one of their luxurious tenthouses...what an amazing experience. Very well appointed room...definitely "glamping"! Comfy king size bed, awesome tub, toasty fireplace...the list goes on and on. Best part was waking up and looking out into a gorgeous unobstructed view of the water. Will definitely be back!
