We stayed at the Long Beach Lodge Resort for 4 nights at the end of a 2.5 week tour of the Rockies, Vancouver and Vancouver Island. We had stayed at some very nice properties but this was just the icing on the cake. We rented a rainforest cottage which we shared with friends. The accommodation was amazing - immaculately clean, very spacious and modern with 2 king size beds and 2 bathrooms. We even had our own washing machine and dryer in the cottage.
To our delight the resort had installed 2 BBQ's for guest use on 1st July and so these were brand new and we BBQ'd every night. It was so nice to cater for ourselves after 2 weeks of eating out almost every night.
When we arrived it was a beautiful sunny day but for the next two days there was constant drizzle, we made use of the rain jackets provided and carried on regardless visiting the boardwalk rainforest walks which were spectacular. We went whale watching and bear watching with Jamies tours - both were excellent.
The beach was fantastic with rock pools to explore and many star fish on the beach. Whilst there we asked to be shown round one of the Lodge hotel rooms - this was lovely and if we are ever that way again and I really intend to be then we will definitely stay at this resort again.
Yes it is pricey but you definitely get what you pay for and it was worth every penny.
