Don't know which [Resort ?] the top 6 reviewers stayed at, but it certainly wasn't where we were, at Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort in Parksville, B.C. Canada.
We booked for 2 nights, Easter weekend.
From their own website on April 01, 2009 when we booked, they stated :
Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort offers guests and owners luxurious resort living with hotel style amenities including:
5 swimming, relaxation and hot pools . [They have none]
Children's play center . [Never saw any]
Fitness facilities . [Nope]
Lounge area . [Nope]
Meeting rooms . [Any 2bit hotel could state this]
On site restaurant . [Do not have]
To their credit, since our 1 night stay , they have changed the wording on their website to reflect the fact that they have no amenities.
We checked out the next morning and move next door where they had what they advertised!
When we arrived home I contacted Expedia, who we booked thru, and they contacted Sunrise Ridge to check m our horror story, and agreed to a full reimbursement of our 2day booking.
I am writing this review, not to be spiteful, but to warn other unsuspecting travellers. Hope this helps someone.
