Our room had a balcony with gorgeous view of the bay and boats and small islands. Since we arrived on bicycle, having the restaurant on site was very convenient. The resort was accomodating to our bicycle needs.

We spent the $395/ night to stay in one of the beach cottages with our dog and baby. It was our first time to Mayne. We liked exploring the beaches but they aren't the nice clean sandy beaches we are used to back in Vancouver for sand castles or swimming with little ones. We liked the Japanese garden and the...

Hi Melissa, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you found the cottages breathtaking along with the view. I am sorry you found nothing to do.

recharge one's batteries. The room I was in overlooked the beautiful view the resort is known for. This is a very rustic place and unique in a small island way. Living on an island I appreciated this cozy place. I enjoyed visits from little dogs crawling under my fence to say hello, people having fun in the restaurant below. Kinda... More

My partner Jeff and I had a great time visiting the island, and the resort in particular. Bikes are available to rent (they seem to be all very well maintained) and there is a restaurant and liquor store onsite. Dave and Murray were super friendly and helpful, as was the rest of the staff. Super shout-out to the kayak team... More

Hi Adam and Jeff, Its so good to hear you had a great time here. Our rental bikes are Schwinns, ten years old and reconditioned. One of the benefits of being a boutique resort is staff can provide and enjoy a more personal service and friendliness to our guests. The Kayak guys really enjoy their work and I think it... More

Will start with what we liked about it. Beautify set on Bennet Bay, the views are breath taking. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We booked the romance package for our 20th anniversary and when I inquired about the difference between a cottage and the Villa, I was told there wasn't much different except the cottages were lower down....

We stayed in the Inn, it was OK. The location is beautiful and the amenities are great but there could be a little more attention to detail which is why I didn't give a 5/5. Our in room wine glasses and coffee mugs were filthy and needed to be rewashed, the bed was lumpy, and the deck needed a good... More

Nice place to relax, far from the madding crowd of Vancouver. Beds are comfortable, food in the restaurant is excellent. People are nice, owner Murrey is very nice, others are good too, Leslie, Dave all are very friendly people. Only one suggestion - Please pick up the phone whenever it rings, after all it a business!

The resort is on the site on an old hotel and gathering place on the Island, but has been very thoroughly updated and modernized while retaining some of the quaintness of the past.
