By far one of the nicest places i have stayed at in British Columbia! The location right on a beautiful still & quite beach was breath taking! We had an upgraded room with an ocean view.. A must have!

Beautiful rooms, great customer service & an AMAZING restaurant! Pretty pricey but quite the norm for this type of resort in B.C.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a ocean view.. When spending that type of money already for a room don't be dissapoin...

It was a girl cousins’ reunion – it had been eleven years since we were last together. The Beach Club Resort offered the perfect setting, space, amenities, location and value.

LOCATION: right on the beach in Parksville, the Beach Club Resort is within walking distance of most things “downtown”. For our group it allowed some to go beachcombing, while others shopped or took advantage of the pool, hot tub or fitness equipment; as others simply enjoyed the comforts of the room.

SPACE: SUITE 424, in the West Wing, boasts a spacious livingroom with windows reaching to the vaulted ceiling and an uninterrupted panorama of the beach, bay and northward to Lasqueti Island. The gas fireplace is within an impressive mantel which holds the tv and dvd player and provides plenty of personal space on top. Furnishing the room are two club chairs, foot stool, a double pull-out chesterfield (which one cousin found comfortable enough to reserve as “her bed” the next time), end table, coffee table, sofa table and a dining table with chairs. We brought the arm chair in from the master bedroom and a deck chair to supplement our needs during wonderful evenings of conversation.

KITCHEN: Between the livingroom and kitchen, three comfortable bar chairs sit up to the granite counter and overlook the well equipped kitchen in which three considerate cooks could work without argument. A full size fridge with freezer held much more than we needed for our three night stay.

LAUNDRY: Washer and dryer were tucked away between kitchen and entrance door, as was a closet with ironing equipment and a half bathroom.

BEDROOMS: SUITE 424’s master bedroom holds a king-size bed, dresser, armchair (the one we took to livingroom) with footstool, drawers, end tables and sliding glass doors to a private balcony which also has access from the livingroom. A spacious ENSUITE hosts a deep soaker tub, spacious glass shower, a wide counter/vanity with sink & toiletries, two terry robes and a separated toilet.

We took advantage of the optional adjoining bedroom (making it a two bedroom suite).
ROOM 423 did not feel ‘separate’ but could be self-contained with its 4pc bathroom (much smaller in size than the master), two very comfortable pillow-top queen-size beds dressed in quality linens; a kitchenette with sink, bar fridge, coffee maker, kettle and glassware; closet (6 hangers), drawers, table and chairs, flat screen tv, plus sliding glass doors to a private, slightly larger, deck with the tremendous ocean views.

AMENITIES within the hotel, used by some, if not all, were the complimentary, no problem wifi; the pool, hot tub and some fitness equipment, however, over-all the most appreciated amenity was the beach itself as each tide brought its own fascinations.

RESTAURANTS: within the hotel were not used by our group, so we cannot comment on their value compared to the prices listed; which, being budget conscious, seemed high. We instead tried a number of ‘in town’ restaurants and found the best right across the street. Aioli Seafood Restaurant, though basic in its décor, offered tasty, well presented, reasonably priced food and had us returning two nights later. (There is a separate TripAdvisor post on Aioli Seafood Restaurant.)

VALUE: When we factor in ease of travel for most of the group, the beauty of the beachside location, the spacious livingroom/kitchen combo for six adults who wanted to share time together, the bedrooms and private decks which offered relaxed solitude, the advantage of a well equipped kitchen and access to in-town activities; the ‘value’, for us, was evident.

COMPLAINTS voiced by our group were limited to only three … one cousin didn’t care for the bars of glycerin soap, another found the yoga mats available from the fitness room to be dirty (as if they had been used as beach mats) and one would have preferred to exit the room into a standard hallway rather than an outside porch; … each minor and none deterred any from saying, “The Beach Club Resort would be an ideal place to hold our next reunion,” … and with such a place available it might be a whole lot sooner than another eleven years!

Room Tip: Rooms in the West Wing all appear to have beach/ocean views.

This is the most fantastic location you could find. It is a beautiful view of sweeping sands, oceans and mountains right outside your window. There is a wonderful boardwalk to walk all along the waterfront. The accomodation is first class and the service is very good.

The only complaint that I have is the TV reception is the pitts! We had three TV's and the reception was bad in all of them.

The swimming pool is wonderful and there is a kid's park (the best I have ever seen) just a short walk down the boardwalk. We had our family from Britain with us with a four year old and we thoroughly enjoyed our time!

Room Tip: I would choose the four storey buildings rather than the high rise. We stayed right on the water an...

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 9th floor corner penthouse unit. Amazing amazing beach view from our deck.

Front desk service was great. Despite there being a wedding there the first night of our stay, there were no noise complaints whatsoever.

I forgot my nail polish remover, the front desk sent me to the hotel's salon/spa to pick up some. They didn't actually have any for me to purchase, so the attendant helped me remove my nail polish. I thought it would have been nice for her to offer me a seat to have this done, but she just removed my polish while I stood the whole time.

The hotel is very new, modern and clean. Our walk along the beach is beautiful.

During our two night stay we used the valet a total of 6 times. There was never anyone there to greet us/open the door when we arrived back at the hotel. It was also very slow in finding someone to valet our car. When leaving one afternoon, I phoned from our room to the front desk ahead of time to request that our car be brought around by the valet. Upon our arrival to the lobby 15 minutes later, our car was still not there. The hotel was not busy at this time. This part of the hotel's service was unimpressive. It's something that could definitely influence whether I would recommend this to others, or whether I would stay here again.

Room Tip: choose a room on a high floor with a beach view!

Dear baby888,

Thank you very much for your comments regarding your recent stay at the Beach Club Resort. I’m glad to hear you received great service from our Front Desk, and that you appreciated the hotel’s modern look and the natural beauty of our surroundings. I also appreciate your feedback regarding our valet service, as we are always striving to provide the best possible assistance. This service is conducted by our Bell Staff, and they are among the most active team members, assisting guests with valet, luggage, room services, and complimentary shuttle service. Due to the long weekend and the wedding you mentioned, our hotel was full and regrettably, there were some delays to valet service. I’m sorry you were inconvenienced, but I sincerely hope you will give us a second chance to impress you with all we have to offer.

Warm Regards,

In the past we have also stayed at other older resorts in Parksville and I was not sure how I would enjoy staying at this part of town but the resort amenities quickly left those tired resorts a distant memory.

First, the front desk staff are friendly and professional, great first impression! Then we checked int. We had a 2 bedroom suite and was it ever spacious ! Lovely full kitchen and cozy living area with spectacular views. The master suite had a king size bed and large bath. The second bedroom had 2 queen beds and bathroom. There was also an in suite washer and dryer.

The suite clearly can become a 1 bedroom suite with kitchen and 2 queen room with the close of a door and but I would only stay in a 1 or 2 bedroom suite, and never just the lower priced 2 queen room without a kitchen. What I live is the modern condo type feel, great for travelers who want to hunker down and cook.

I didn't eat in the restaurant as we did our own cooking and it seemed a bit pricey, although it looked quite nice. The Spa also looked nice but I am still a loyal follower of the Grotto Spa at Tigh na Mara and that is worth the drive.

Room Tip: A room with a view is a must!

The resort is very well run , clean and the staff are very helpful. At low tide the water leaves at least 1000 m of beach exposed to explore. You can kayak, paddle board, swim, windsurf etc. Rent right on the beach . It can be windy , so if you are renting equipment , it may be better towards late afternoon , when the wind dies down. There is a great playground just down the beach when the kids get tired of the water. The restaurant is good , but a bit pricey. The kitchens are set up pretty well, but bring spices as there is no salt/pepper. There are some good restaurants in the neighbourhood as well and grocery stores nearby. Our favourite place to eat is Cuckoos in Coombs, which is about 10 minute drive. If your stay includes a tuesday, check out the farmer's market.

Room Tip: Higher floors seem to buffer the sounds from outside and the A/C units

I stayed on business and found this resort to be everything I needed or wanted. The beds are very high and cozy. There was an in room fridge which was nice to keep cheese I bought while on your. The meals were only experienced via banquet/buffer style at the conference I was attending. None the less all food was delicious. My favourite was the salmon with a cream sauce.
Certainly a nice location to take a break and go for a walk on the beach front boardwalk.
I will take my next time. Oh btw did I mention the SPA services and the hitting and pool. Very nice!
