This is a very nice resort. The views are breathtaking, the pools are relaxing and the staff are very helpful and responsive. We had a few glitches with our room, but all in all the place was fantastic. We met our friends who sailed up and docked at the marina. It was a great place to hang out. Lots to... More

We rented a cottage for the weekend. Very nice greeting upon arrival with cold lemonade and the lady was pleasant and knowledgeable about the area and things to do. The accommodation was great. Comfortable, clean with fully equipped kitchen and the BBQ was great. They are on septic system so the smell did linger into the bathrooms which was rather... More

Wow, a class act in a beautiful setting! Great villa room overlooking the pool and ocean view. Loved watching the boats in the harbour, and the eagles soar while sitting on the deck. Great evenings spent on the patio at Syren's Bistro and Pub listening to Sandy Bone's blues band with great food and drink. I would recommend this to... More

Stopped in on a little day trip from SSI. Had fish and chips, and pizza and a few cold ones. Fat tug and moosehead on tap. Nice spot with a great view. Lots of kids in the pool and plenty of boats in the marina. The fish and chips are a must. Lots of space on the patio. Be sure... More

Stayed in the marina part of the resort. We were looking forward to this moorage based on the website and marine travel guide. No docking assistance was offered. Lukewarm reception at the marina office to check in and pay. No information about amenities offered.

We were really looking forward to our return to Poets Cove during our annual trip to Canadian waters to celebrate our anniversary. It really is a beautiful place with very gracious and helpful staff, from the marina staff to wait staff and front desk.
