The Mayne Island Resort is my "main" go-to on the island. See what I did there? The operators are as friendly as can be. Whether it's offering up suggestions of what to do, or just having a conversation with you, they're all just so pleasant. We stayed in the main part of the resort and though the room wasn't anything...

Hello Steve, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are honored that you have chosen Mayne Island Resort to be your "main" island resort :-) and I am glad you made good use of and enjoyed our amenities. Our spa RMT and practitioners are getting great reviews and we count ourselves very fortunate having them on board....

We stayed in one of the cottages, the view alone was worth every penny! The cottage was clean and modern and very comfortable. The heated bathroom floor was what the kids loved the most! The cottage had a very high end feeling to it. Mayne island is a great place to visit with lots of things to do and visit...

Hi Dave, Thank you for taking time to write a review. I agree its a million dollar view. I read a quote that said the real value of a spectacular view is that when you leave, you carry it with you wherever you go. I hope our view is worthy of this beautiful thought. Warm regards Murray

My fiance I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely resort during December. I know many people come to the gulf islands during the summer season as the weather is nice and there are many outdoor activities, but I would definitely recommend traveling here during the low seasons. The weekend we decided to go had an expected snow storm,...

Hi Jen, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely and thorough review. I agree that visiting our island in the off season can be very rewarding.

On a lovely cove with lots of wildlife. Restaurant really good and free breakfast great. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Room was old but well kept, nice deck. Indoor pool & hot tub. Billiard/Pool table a nice extra. The island has lots of short or longer walks. Sandstone formations on beaches intriguing. Ferries in Active Pass were fun to watch--up to 3...

Okay, for all the complainers out there, let's get the record straight: this is a small gulf island, it's a small community; don't come here with big city expectations, this is what makes the place charming, if you want luxury and state of the art, stay in your city. Now that's out of the way, we LOVED our stay in...

Hello Alla-Rustica Thank you for writing a review and I am happy you loved your stay.

Wonderfully appointed cottage. Fabulous view. Lovely windows. Granite countertops. Bathroom tiling looks like it is a home job. Unfortunately, staff are not overly friendly but this seems to be a theme on Mayne Island.
