This is a nice quiet place to stay and is great for kids.
I have stayed here every summer for the past 5 years with my 3 kids and parents and we have enjoyed every visit. We have stayed each time in the 3 bedroom condo and there is lots of room for us. The condos are always nice and clean.
My kids love the pool, which being 3 feet deep is perfect for young kids.
The parking lot and roads around the resort are great for us to ride our bikes on.
The playground in the resort is quite nice also.
Rathtrevor beach is a short walk from the resort. We have spent hours on the beach making sandcastles or we have swam in the nice warm water.
There is a good mini golf place just down the road.
There are lots of amenities close to the resort like Coombs, Rip Tide mini golf, North Island Wildlife Recovery center, etc..

We stayed here for the week with our two teenage boys. We took a 2 bed condo, which was on the far edge of the site, furthest away from reception - it had distant views of the beach/sea. The condo was upstairs, with a long, sweeping balcony on the back which was long enough to accommodate a dining table. Being upstairs we felt more relaxed about leaving all our windows fully open at night (using the fly screen to prevent creepy crawlies from entering), which was useful since there was no air con and would otherwise have been stuffy. Although our end of the site was quiet and pleasant, it did seem that the rest of the accommodation was quite close to each other. BBQs were $10 to hire/night, which was a bit of a surprise to us (from the UK), but they supplied the gas and provided clean tools, so we got over it. The pool was smaller than it appeared in the photos and was usually ful of youngsters so our boys avoided it. The condo was spotlessly clean and well equiped. Beach was large and sea was shallow at high tide - hard to throw yourself in for a quick dip.

This place is definitely not a resort. The condos are functional, but they are also quite small and really hot and stuffy --- there is no air conditioning. This might not be too bad if you have just adults in the room, but it's a big deal when you are travelling with a 12-month-old as you can't leave the sliding door open throughout the night. When I asked about the air conditioning (I thought I just couldn't find the switch), I was told there was a fan in the closet. Hmmm, thanks. This leads to the other major drawback about this place -- the staff. Not the classiest or friendliest you will come across. In short, Parksville is an awesome place to visit, especially in the summer. The beaches are amazing and they provide endless entertainment for kids and adults alike. But, when looking for a place to stay, there are much better options than Ocean Trails. In fact, the two places next door are terrific: try Tigh na mara for a true resort experience or Madrona, which is right on the water. While we loved the beach, we won't return to Ocean Trails.

We only had time to stay here for 2 nights while passing through but my family and I didn't want to leave and I would come back here in a heartbeat! We stayed in a 2bdrm condo...it was super clean, modern, cozy, quiet! Everything we wanted. We have teenagers and they were kept occupied by the beach, outdoor pool and hot tub. The grounds are well kept the staff helpful. I will reccommend it highly to others!

Had a great time with my family. The 2 bedroom we stayed in was very comfortable and clean. It was a quick 3 minute walk to the beach. As a family with 3 smaller kids I will say that we are going to go back.
