I came here for a short getaway with my girlfriends and felt like I truly escaped reality. We were so impressed by the attention to detail, luxurious touches, and highly friendly staff. The COVID protocols were strict which I appreciated, and each room had windows and balconies which were helpful for increased ventilation. I cannot wait to visit again. Special thanks to the manager to making our stay extra special when unforeseen circumstances (ie tsunami advisory) arose.

Hotel's Favorite
We live in Victoria but my husband and I decided to spend the night at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel as a staycation during the long weekend. From the moment we stepped out of the car everything was excellent. We were greeted by three doormen before we even walked into the building! Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly, professional, and accommodating! The heated mineral pool was fantastic and the hot tubs were so relaxing! You're right on the ocean so you get to experience the stunning views right from inside the pools! The staff are very conscientious of covid protocols and we felt safe and cared for the entire time. The food and drink were delicious and the rooms were comfortable and clean. We even splurged and had treatments at the spa and they were absolutely fantastic! We would highly recommend the Oak Bay Beach Hotel and we can't wait to be able to plan our next staycation there!

Taking a few minutes to thank everyone at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel for a wonderful Birthday. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with warmth and kindness. The staff’s dedication to absolute customer service is remarkable. I can’t say enough about Lee, Nico and Dillon. The Christmas decorations where stunning! We had an amazing lunch at Faro’s and Kelsea treated us like family. Even with a busy daily schedule Kate came by to say hello and take pictures for the group. I can’t forget Teddy, who baked the most delicious decadent cheesecake I have ever had! If you haven’t stayed or gone for dinner you are definitely missing something special. Can’t wait for my next Birthday!

This property is beautiful! The rooms are stunning the views facing the Pacific ocean are such a lovely sight to wake up to. All of the food we had from the Snug Pub and FARO was delicious! The heated mineral pools were a great way to spend the afternoon even on a cloudy, cool fall day.
