Such an awesome experience. First stayed in the pet friendly cabin, which had a cute little deck with view of the ocean. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Then looked up what other accomadations they have at the RockWater, and came across the tent houses. Those are amazing! Such a cool experience. I loved the entire layout of it, even the little walk in the trees to get to it. Definitely will go back, and recommending to everyone!

We stayed in a cabin (number 10). My pregnant wife and I arrived later in the day and did not notice it till we had a shower the next morning. It was so obvious that there is black mould in multiple spots on the ceiling that management had to be aware of this. How can you allow people to stay in here, especially some pregnant.

The sunshine coast is a spectacular area and the Rockwater property is too. One day this will be a 4 star resort but in the meantime shop carefully. The good, the tent "cabins' overlooking the water have incredible views and are nice themselves. They have a boat up to dock for a boat up to 26' or several smaller boats. For us this was super. The not so good. you have to walk your bags to the tent cabins, the paths to the bungalows are muddy or have cracked pavement/concrete. The med. The lodge dining room/lounge has nice views over the water. The menu is good, the service/kitchen quality is over priced. The bad. My goodness $300 a night for a 'bungalow' that is at least 60 years old and likely cost $1000 when built is out of control to expensive. These funky panabode bungalows are dated to say the least. The old stairs and porches are in dire need of paint. The exteriors need a wipe down of spider webs etc and paint. The stairs, porches and bungalows floors are not level, the shower floor leaks into the bathroom and into the living area. The local staff are great and almost embarrassed at what Rockwater charges but you can see in their faces they risk their job saying anything other than positive. Conclusion, I travel, Fairmont, Westin, Pan Pacific to name a few are 4 star hotel/resorts. Rockwater is a 2/3. Shop wisely there are many other sunshine coast properties that offer better value.

We had a great time, staff were next level. From arrival to departure everything was perfection. Looking forward to the next trip to gold coast just to stay here again. Thanks to everyone, definitely recommend staying.

The Rockwater Secret Cove Resort is in one of the most beautiful locations in British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast. It was the off season when I visited so both the nearby town of Sechelt was very quiet as well as the resort itself. That being said, the resort is spread out with the option of staying in the usual hotel room style space, separate cabins and even yurts! The layout of the various spaces to stay are spread out amongst the property providing great privacy and is right on the water where it is easy to hear and see the beautiful eagles who live amongst the abundance of forest surrounding the property. The staff were more than accommodating and the owners are very personable, kind and it is easy to see they take a lot of pride in providing a wonderful experience for their guests. The restaurant offers fantastic meals with great service. The other positive is that there are many hiking trails and nearby restaurants as well to explore and experience. It seemed like everyone in Sechelt was so kind and laid back. I highly recommend this resort for all couples looking for some time with one another amongst the beautiful scenery on the Sunshine Coast!
