First, the location can't be beat.. million dollar views and for that, it's awesome. However, if you're expecting the same level of facility you may be disappointed. Twenty, 30 years ago this place was probably off the hook amazing. Now, the interior is incredibly dated, bland and nothing to get excited about. Services were fine, polite and professional but no...

Hello Michael W Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback regarding your stay. We too, just love the view here at the resort but know the guest experience is about so much more.

Stayed for 2 nights with a group of girlfriends. Having anticipated a "Resort" Spa, it was a little disappointing to pull into a Motel-style hotel where you drive up to your room door. Grounds and area around the hotel were rough looking - it just really needs a good clean up. The Resort is on waterfront, but unfortunately you are...

My girlfriend and I needed to get away from our homework at University and relax. This was the best idea ever! The room was nice and clean and the cleaning staff were super lovely! We had the least expensive room and had an amazing view! The sheets were so soft! Ah but most importantly the hydropath was super cool. It...

Kingfishers feed on a wide variety of prey. They are most famous for hunting and eating fish, even some birds and mammals. Just like the bird, this resort swoops down to feed on your wallet. They seem to find a way of taking what could be a great experience and screwing it up in every way. Right from the check...

We were missing the 'cared for' , spa atmosphere of the past. We were pleasantly surprised by the improvements over last year from the front desk staff to the housekeeping department. Pleased by the return to old world hospitality and the simple touches that set the Kingfisher apart as a Spa Resort first, not a hotel with a Spa added!...

Off the top I would stay here again but I think I would try the newer units closer to the water. The view from our balcony was lovely but the rooms had a bit of an 'old' smell about them. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and everything worked so I have no major complaints. I kept tripping...

The Kingfisher is located in a prime location in between the beautiful cities of Courtenay and Nanaimo. You will find peace and relaxation. The Restaurant menu is gourmet and a real feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. Not to mention the pool, hot tub and the steam room are so inviting. I'd recommend anyone this location for...

Every year in the dark days of winter a stay at the Kingfisher with all the amenities. I go back every year for my pick-me-up tonic. From the Hydropath to the food at the restaurant everything is what other resort should aspire to be. If you need to say thank-you to a special person this is how you do it!
