Stayed here during our son's tournament in Parksville. The grounds and pool area were quite nice. The condo we staying in was very dated, with old furniture. I've never had to take the garbage and recycling out after staying in a hotel! Our team manager booked a block of rooms for our team. Within 3 days she then changed the... More

I had a one bedroom unit on the bottom floor of a 2 floor complex..Management refuses to reserve a specific unit & will only take requests emphasizing there is no guarantee what unit you will get. The noise from the top unit was awful. I could hear every footstep, using the toilet, dishwasher, water, etc. Certainly not restful. Very small... More

Spent 2 months in 2016, most enjoyable . Great staff. Very courteous and helpful . Nestled in beautiful cedar forest within short walk to beach. Short drive to city centre and/or other resort areas. English river walk is wonderfull.

We stayed here again for a lacrosse tournament. This hotel is awesome. I covered it all in my review from last year here and it stayed true this year. In short there is nothing missing, they are awesome. They also were good with organizing our group. Everyone in our group had nothing but positive things to say about this resort.... More

We’re happy to hear you found your 2-bedroom unit the right size for your getaway. Having everything at your fingertips certainly has its benefits. You can cook, eat and relax on your own schedule leaving more time for those beach walks and sunsets! We hope to see you again. More

This place was clean and bright. It was obviously well cared for, I want to live here. The location was good too - some nice trees but still a sunny orientation, and a nice walk to the beach. And of great importance while on holiday - it is close to mini-golf.

We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Trails Resort. After a very busy time at work it was nice to come up for a long weekend to enjoy some R&R. The units are lovely and a home away from home. We won't hesitate to book again!

We certainly understand you being a bit disgruntled with the weather not fully cooperating during your stay. Many people actually select to visit us in the winter as they like how green it is here as opposed to so much of Canada. We would have liked to have heard about your concerns about the size of your suite, or even... More
