Arriving almost 2 hours early for check in due to faster travel times, They gave me a call almost 15 mins later that our room was ready. Very helpful. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious and got great friendly service from waiter "mark". Every employee of the hotel that we passed walking welcomed us with smiles.

I stayed for four days in May and loved it. The view was wonderful and being rather jet lagged it was great during my sleepless nights hearing the waves outside. The room and facilities were great and I would definitely return.

We have stayed at the Beach Club resort 3 times in the past 2 years and have had an incredible experience each time, summer or winter. The property itself is lovely, new, and impeccably maintained. The location is stellar, right on the beach in the center of Parksville. Rooms are contemporary condo-style with ample space for families and, if you get water side, a million dollar view. Topping it off, the Beach Club has a fabulous restaurant that nails breakfast through dinner, and a spa with top tier services.

We have done a couples weekend at Valentines and family trips both at Christmas and in the summer. The property is very quiet in winter yet welcoming, and the summer is a perfect time for families. The beach access is second to none, and little touches like the water tap to clean your feet and beach toys on the way back to your room are great. Fitness room and pool area are also solid.

One of the more expensive properties in Parksville in high season, but the value for the money is superb. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: It has to be ocean view! 1 bedroom suites are ample size for families with small kids.

Stayed here just just one night, 2 adults, 2 kids. Had an oceanview studio on the ground floor, and the view was stupendous. Settled in in 5 minutes, then ran out across our private patio, across the lawn to the beach and into the water. Fabulous. We stayed out there swimming until at least 6:30pm. Kids were swimming, beach combing. In the evening, the boardwalk was 20 steps away from our patio. Decent indoor pool and hot tub.
Studio unit just has a fridge and coffeemaker - no microwave. Had take-out pizza out on the patio the first evening, and grocery store breakfast out on the patio the next morning. For more than one day, we'd have needed a larger unit with at least a full kitchenette, but this was fine for a day.

Very clean, comfortable room. Nice fluffy duvets, comfortable beds. Bathroom was rather smallish, but clean/fine. We spent almost no time in the room: were out on the patio, on the beach, on the grassy lawns. Internet was slow (couldn't even look up tide tables - gave up after 5 minutes).
It was relatively expensive for just a room with no kitchenette, but the setting/view
were why the price was high (and we got a "last minute online rate just hours before we checked in)

Comparison: Have stayed at Beach Acres Resort in Parksville .. there are more kids for kids to meet and many kid-oriented activities at Beach Acres - plus they have tennis court, horseshoes, shuffleboard, basketball, movie nights, beach campfires, kids playground etc at Beach Acres.. and very large cottages and townhouses for about the slightly lower price than Beach Club Resort's regular prices.

For adults, I'd recommend Beach Club Resort.. quiet and fabulous beachfront location. For families with kids, the kids are completely occupied and have plenty of other kids to play with at Beach Acres Resort. Happy occupied kids = happy relaxed parents. So for our family, for any trip to Parksville for more than 2 days, we'll go back to Beach Acres Resort which is fabulous for families with kids..

Room Tip: Choose an oceanview room.

Thank you for taking time to post your comments on TripAdvisor. The ground floor ocean view studio rooms location and view of the beach cannot be beat. I will pass on your comments about the cleanliness of the room to housekeeping. I am sorry to hear about the slowness of the internet access and we definitely will check on that. We do not have the same facilities as Beach Acres for children but we do offer a supervised Kids Club program Monday to Friday at The Beach Club Resort during the summer months.
Thank you again for comments

We just returned from a fantastic stay at The Beach Club Resort. Everything was first rate and beautiful. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which was just perfect for a young family. We traveled with our 3 young children (8, 4 & 18months) and found the amenities in the suite perfectly suited to our needs. The hotel is located right on the beach, with amazing ocean views. When we booked our suite, we didn't book an ocean view. That didn't matter though, as our balcony had a fantastic view of the ocean and the park directly beside the resort. The suite was very tide and clean, had everything we could possibly think of (think coffee filters,tea, coffee, sugar, cream, every plate, pot, pan you could think of), and anything else you needed was just a few minutes away. We spent hours beach combing and swimming and loved the convenience of being able to walk back to our room only a few minutes away for naps. The pool is pretty good, but who needs a pool when you have that amazing beach? Front desk was extremely helpful and we even ordered in from the on-site restaurant (a little pricey if you ask me) and the meal was delicious. We will definitely be coming back again.

A family of 4 with 2 grown up sons we chose a 2 bedroom suite with beach views. We'd carefully read the descriptions about different rooms & rates so deliberately selected a beach view and were not dissapointed.
The rooms were superb and very well equipped. Our 2 bedroomed suite also had a separate lounge / kitchen diner and had two balconys overlooking the beach.
All of the staff were extremely friendly and always smiled and said hello. The restaurant was very good also particularly if you took an outside table overlooking the boardwalk & beach.
We had no problem with wi-fi having 6 separate devices connected & even still had a signal several hundred metres from the beach.
Loved it, where else can you walk out of your room & be on a sunny beach with snow capped mountains behind?
