“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

excellent location. We were pleased with our choice, we stayed in a king suite. The rooms were a good size. The beds and all other room provisions were a welcome surprise. The resort staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and considerate. Our family enjoyed the ammenities, and the location of the property. Although the price I found a bit on the expensive side, our other family friends stayed in the condos, which I think is a better alternative to off set the cost.

This was our second stay at the Manteo Resort - we will return next year as well. The room is clean and equipped with everything you'd expect. The location is easy, the staff is friendly, the resort itself has all the amenities for fun. They have a nightly theater for kids along with a clubhouse for ping pong and other games. The grounds are beautiful - enjoy meditating on the patio by the water every morning before a workout - and the restaurant is excellent.

The only issue I had was that the weight room - adequate for a resort like this. It had just been stocked with new dumbbells that were busy emitting a rubber stench that was awful. This will pass in a month or so - I simply opened the door to let fresh air in. The staff was fine with my solution so no problem. In four days that would be the only thing I could say in the "con" column. Next summer when we go back to Kelowna, we are planning to stay for a third time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view.

Manteo Beach Resort is one of the many places in Kelowna that is hopping with activities in the summer and even at shoulder season - the serenity and loveliness if the place can't be hidden. It has a dock for the boat enthusiasts and its close to the lakes and wineries as well. Where we stayed at is a 1-bedroom townhouse looking area with a single car garage. Lovely place and don't forget the Wild Apple Restaurant - very delicious, local food are served there!

Lots to do. Kids had tons of fun and the hotel is perfect for business or family! We stayed in a suite and rented a boat for a few hours. We had tons of fun on the lake and the weather wasn't even that great but we still had fun!

The resort location was beautiful, the views are spectacular. The breakfast buffet was great value. The whole experience would have been perfect if we didn't have a disappointing check in and check out!

We had a hotel room overlooking the lake (it was a stretch-we saw more of the roof than the beach). Room had a balcony with some plastic chairs-wasn't very inviting. Room had a great sized fridge, but no microwave. 1 packet of coffee for the coffee maker per day. Vanity/sink area was quite small-no room on vanity to store anything. Tub/shower combination and toilet were in separate area with door. Very tight for room again-not a lot of room to get around. 2 robes were included along with some extra pillows and a blanket in the closet. Hotel safe in room as well. My big beef with hotels-the selection of tv channels is usually awful, and this was no different. We were able to adjust temperature in the room very easily. Bed was super comfortable and the linens were amazing. NIce toiletries from Philosophy. The elevator was probably the slowest I have ever experienced and the stairs were not very well marked. Restaurant was gorgeous and the food was really good. Buffet breakfast was also pretty good-limited selection of protein choices if you are trying to follow a somewhat healthy diet, but that's not what most people want or look for on vacation. Pools were great, but a lot of kids, so if that is not your thing, steer clear. Parking in the lot was sometimes a bit challenging, but we always managed to find a spot. Location is amazing. Can't beat it.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room-the balconies are very large and overlook the pool and beach area.

We stayed in a 1-BDR lakeside suit and we quite enjoyed our stay. The room was clean with a lovely view of the lake and it was very clean. There was a sofa bed in the living room and they also delivered a foamy mattress to our room for our son which was nice and clean. The kitchen was equipped well with a stove, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. We received daily cleaning service with fresh linens and towels. There was a little balcony with two plastic chairs which was great for enjoying your drink and watching the activities on the lake. Our kids enjoyed the pools and the clubhouse and have a lovely time playing on the beach. I think the restaurant can improve the quality and diversity of food and menu. We tried the Smack Dab restaurant for breakfast and dinner and we found it overpriced with not enough choices for breakfast. The parking situation wasn't that great either. There was a wedding on our night of arrival and we had a hard time finding a spot. Overall, a good value for the money, especially if you are traveling with family.
