Our friends and family cannot stop raving about how wonderful the beautiful Rockwater Resort was for our recent wedding! Not only is the location stunning, but the venue is meticulously cared for and makes for a wonderful retreat any day. The entire team at Rockwater also went above and beyond on every single little detail that went into our big... More

The standard room in the resort was perfectly clean and nice. The balcony towards the bay offered beautiful views - and I could sleep with the sound of the sea in my ears. Service was friendly and professional. Related to the overall experience, it's quite pricey

We first viewed the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort in the middle of winter and even then it was a beautiful location. When we returned for our wedding weekend, we were blown away by it's natural beauty and we were so lucky to have had our close family and friends with us there. The Rockwater Team was amazing and helpful in... More

Wonderful place to stay. The tent experience is amazing and the tent area with boardwalks is incredibly beautiful. Good staff. Very good food. A bit of a general air of decay to the older buildings and grounds though, particularly the outside reception area for weddings, etc. Bedding is lovely but the mattresses so soft that our backs were painful in...

We stayed 2 nights in a one bedroom cabin. The bedroom has a large king bed, bedroom is large. The mattress is hard but nice soft pillows. The living room has 26 inch TV with telus optic tv, great channel selection. The room has a mini fridge, tea kettle and coffee maker. The bathroom has a tub and shower. Our... More

Look like very nice resort. Stopped by for a pre-dinner drink and ordered a Mojito. It turned out to be the worst Mojito I have ever had! I had thought about having a G&Tonic - in hindsight I wish I had ordered that instead!

Nice place to stay though it's expensive. $280 for a cabin per night. The restaurant is overpriced. I'd recommend this place if you have cash to blow. The setting is stunning though, couldn't ask for a more beautiful spot except all the cabins don't face or have ocean views.

My girlfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway to the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort. She had booked one of the tenthouses and it was spectacular! We checked in and had a good walk (5 minutes plus) from the check in location along the boardwalk to our tenthouse. Along the way you get some lovely views of the bay and the... More

We went for our 11th wedding anniversary dinner. We were disappointed! I had the salmon (overbooked) and only a tiny slab of it, the potato fritter was undercooked but the peas and bacon mixture were good. Husband had pork belly, which was 1/2 fat and about the size of 1/2 a cell phone...... The dessert was triffle, it was really... More

My boyfriend and I came here from Vancouver for a quick one-night getaway for my birthday. The staff were very friendly, courteous and informative. Food was good and averagely priced. As we booked last minute, we stayed in the hotel, and not in the infamous tent suites that the resort is known for. We did walk through where the tent... More
