Stand-out motel in Wasaga Beach--well-run, beautifully maintained, pretty and peaceful. We decided to stay in this party beach town for a single night rather than face a long same-day drive home from Barrie to Ottawa. Well, once we found the Luau Resort we ended up staying five nights. There's a lot of accommodations here but most we saw were plain at best and many a bit too rough-and-tumble for us. Not all of us come to this world-class beach just to tan and drink! The Luau reminded me of the wonderful small family-run hotels you can still find in the Caribbean. It is nestled between the beaches and the Ottawasaga River. So you just walk across the street to the big beaches (it's all provincial park along the beach so there are virtually no accommodations right on the beach) but when you're at the motel you can sit in a lovely lawn chair and watch the action on the river--boaters, water skiiers, ducks... The whole property is green, spotless and full of gorgeous flowers all around the heated turquoise salt-water pool. We had a single standard room with a refrigerator and it was just fine--and the bed made for a great sleep. Owner Monique imparts her European touch to the place, including expecting good behaviour from lodgers which we were grateful for on a few occasions with other guests. We would definitely recommend the Luau.
