We booked 2 days at the Mosaic after a lot of internet searches (in particular using Trip Advisor) for the Collingwood/Wasaga Beach area. After a horribel experience at another establishment located in Parry Sound, we added an extra night on very short notice. We had booked a one-bedroom condo with a King-sized bed "preference" (they do not guarantee bed choices - my only real complaint about the place). The cost was approximately $250 first night with a gradual decline in price for each additional night = total for 3 nights was aproximately $680.00 (tax in). The prices can fluctuate here due to the private ownership of the condos; however, once booked the price is the price. You could likely get a better deal if you do not book on short notice.
We arrived around 6p.m. or so frazzled from the bad experience we had earlier that day. The young lady at the front desk, "Heather", was an absolute pleasure to deal with - bright, articulate, efficient and understanding of our needs. We relayed our earlier experience to her. Lucky for us, a King-size bed was available in 2 of the remaining condo suites. Once checked in, we went to our assigned room. However, we left right away as it was located right beside the elevator and you could hear it moving up and down and dinging. Heather changed our room right away with no questions asked. Our final destination was a lovely little one bedroom condo. It was clean (except for the stray hair in the tub) and comfortable. The view was of the parking lot outside and the tennis dome; however, if you looked beyond that there was a panoramic view of the lake. The room had all of the amenities described to us and had pretty good soundproofing. Be forewarned that you can not turn off the air conditionning!
Shortly after our arrival at our final destination, a bottle of shiraz with some local chocolates were sent up to our room with a note saying "Have a relaxing vacation". We knew right away that this had come from Heather! Now, this might be standard for this hotel; however, it was a delightful surprise!
Mosaic is located in The Village (part of the Blue Mountain Resort), so there is a lot of nearby shopping, restaurants and little things to entertain adults and children alike. Our hotel was very family friendly, so if you mind hearing kids running up and down the halls, then this place is not for you! The underground parking is apparently free in the summertime - a nice bonus! The restaurant attached to the Mosaic serves an excellent and hearty breakfast!
The outdoor pool was a decent size and was a nice temperature. The outdoor hot tub was a nice temperature as well; however, it could really use a proper cleaning! We never made it to the beach (which is included in the price of the stay), so I can not comment on that.
In short, although a little on the pricey side (especially since you can not get room service) we had a very pleasant 3 night stay at the Mosaic and would return again. It was very convenient for us as we did the Outdoor Adventure at the Scenic Caves (a 5 minute drive OR you can hike or take the gondola up the mountain at the Resort).Heather - you were an absolute pleasure to deal with - all the best in your future endeavours!
