Worst customer service from beginning to end when we packed up and left as they gave our 2nd site for family away. They even phoned to confirm our 2 sites 2 weeks prior. Worst we have ever experienced and we can a lot.

We stayed there two nights in a 30ft RV. They gave us a site that was clearly not fit for anything bigger than 20ft and had an electricity pole in the middle of the site which kind of made it impossible to actually use it. Only after asking I got a different site which was so tight that it was... More

I had some friends from out of town stay here over the weekend and they stayed in cabin #22 & LOVED IT!! It was completely renovated and super cute. 2 bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with 2 queen/double beds. The cabin was bright and modern. The bathroom had a lovely tiled shower but no bath tub.... More

We stayed at one of the motel rooms in Sept 2015. Please note that this was almost a year ago. The room was o.k. It's an old building but they did some renovation to make it look better. There was no issue with the actual room. There's no fan in the bathroom - so if it's steamy after a shower... More

Stayed here for 5 days. We were group of 3 families and kids in various age groups from Vancouver, Nanaimo and L.A. We loved Qualicum Beach and wanted to find some place that satisfies everyone in our friends and family group and Riverside Resort had everything we wanted for. Each family stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin that was nicely... More

We are returning users, we have come almost ever year for 20+ years. This year we showed up and had other family stay in the cabins. There is new management, who is not friendly nor accommodating. A lot of new 'policies' which returning guests who booked year in advance were not informed of nor were our rates carried forward. Rates... More

Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to review our resort. We realize that our rates have increased since the last time you stayed with us.

Spent 11 days in a 2 bedroom apartment. Unfortunately the room was outdated and not up to our standards. It was very noisy since it is by a major road. The room had a full kitchen and a balcony which we liked.The carpet in the room needs upgrading because it has a strong animal smell which we disliked. The curtains... More

Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to review our lovely resort. I apologize about the noise from the store and the pet smell that you had to endure. We are renovating that particular room and putting in a sound barrier that will hopefully eliminate the the noise factor. The next time you stay with us, I would suggest... More

All in all a great little place. We stayed with our two small Grandsons in one of the new cabins. Very cute & comfortable layout with plenty of room. The kitchen was well equipped with the wares to make dinners. The fridge and stove are a good size. There is a bar with 2 stools to eat at, a table... More
