We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Trails Resort, weather was great, beach was beautiful, digs were very comfortable. We would have appreciated a smaller frying pan, lets face it, cooking for three we didn't need a 12`` pan no matter what we were enjoying. Restaurants are very good in the area and we did enjoy the sandcastles and of course... More

This was our first time in Parksville, and our week at Ocean Trails has us looking forward to a return some day. We were given a spacious two-bedroom unit with full kitchen. Our unit is privately owned (as perhaps all are) with reservations managed through the central Ocean Trails office. Our unit was near the office end of the resort,... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo with 8 members of our family, ranging from a toddler to a senior and it was a perfect location for our holiday. The condo easily accommodated our group and was well laid out and equipped. The beach was perfect for our grandchildren's first stay at the ocean and they loved the playground and... More

We gather 3 generations with 7 adults and 6 children. The combination of the wide beach and pools provide the opportunity for all to interact. We get 2 3-bedroom units -- a good amount of space for all. For the oldest generation, it would be great if there was seating with firm back support.

We stayed here as a family of four with two children under 10. All the units are individually decorated so I can only comment on unit 24 which we were very satisfied with. It was equipped with all necessary amenities for our week long stay. It was clean and comfortable. Would benefit from air con as it was extremely hot... More

Excellent if you want a more inexpensive but still nice option to Rathtrevor Beach. The unit I stayed in only had sliding doors in each of the bedrooms (no windows) AND they were put on backwards so you couldn't leave them open at night with a piece of wood to block entrance. Frustrating because it was really hot. It has... More

I have stayed at Ocean Trails for a few years now. I have found the staff to be overall courteous and accommodating. The cottages are clean. The grounds are tidy. The resort is close to the beach. This past stay was the best in terms of the effort they made to put myself and my daughter and family right next... More

We are returning customers to Ocean Trails for multiple reasons: 1. Steps to the warmest part of the ocean in Canada and one of the largest sandy beaches to let your children roam without worry. Why not worry? When the tide is coming in the water is only waste deep for a good 500m - 1km! 2. Pool, hot tub,... More
