I've stayed at the Beach Gardens a number of times now over an 11 year period. The resort was upgraded several years ago and the rooms in this two story unit that I stay in are brand new looking. The ocean view out the large door/window is world class with beautiful sunsets, eagles, herons, Orca whales, boats, ferries, tugboats, Texada Island and Vancouver Island in the distance. This view never ceases to amaze me. The room is very adequate and clean with modest, but nicely kept appointments.
The walls are paper thin, so you'll hear everything next door, including snoring, romance, arguments and loud TV's. It didn't keep me from sleeping, but some would have a problem with it possibly.
The pub downstairs is very good with a nice selection of local and national brand beers. The patio at night is to die for with a gas fireplace to keep you nice and cozy as the chill sets in.
Breakfast (supplied by the hotel in my case) was very lacking with mostly sweet white flour stuff, sweet juices, and sweetened cereals and packaged oatmeal. We begged for boiled eggs and cheese and yogurt and that came about day 5 of a 13 day stay.
The resort seems popular with clientele as most of the rooms were pretty full (mid to late June). There is private marina right at the ocean and one can watch the comings and goings all day long from the room.
There is a workout room with an adequate supply of good machines.
For tourists, couples this is a marvelous place if you want scenery. Modest as far as rooms go, but the big attraction is the great outdoors, ocean, sky and mountains in the distance.
