Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Lakeside
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 6, 2010

Just returned from PEI to avoid the storm. The Hotel and golf resort is beautiful but not friendly to families. The staff at the front desk were excellent but the restaurant, and room service staff were horrible. The location of the resort was quite far from other attractions in PEI. In order to visit the beach on the resort, you had to call for a golf cart to shuttle you to the beach. If you are looking to visit PEI with young children, I would choose a place closer to Cavendish, Summerside, or Charlottetown.

My wife and I stayed at the Resort and ate at David's which is the restaurant at this Resort. The rooms are spacious and the fridge in the room is very much appreciated. It is quiet and the view of the golf course we had was fantastic, even during Hurricane Earl. The beds are of excellent quality although I think they could need to replace their televisons. We had a room with a balcony and the balcony which was a nice feature. The windows of our room also opened which permitted us to breathe fresh air instead of air conditioning. The room was also very clean. A drawback is the fitness area. They really need to update their machines in the fitness room. David's is a great restaurant. We had the halibut/lobster dinner and it was excellent. The staff are also very friendly. the views from the restaurant are also pretty nice.

Exquisite location! Great for a honeymoon, especially for golfers. Abuts a quiet beach and is only a half-hour drive to Charlottetown. Comfortable quarters and beautiful setting.

The housekeeping service was inconsistent - some days our glasses seemed to be just put back on the shelf dirty, or towels were left sitting on the floor; while other days it was spotless. The staff was extremely young and mostly good-natured, with the exception of a few. I found that the restaurant, which has been touted as one of PEI's finest, was mediocre at best. The decor feels outdated. Also, I don't know if the walls are thin or what, but we were awakened in the middle of the night by our neighbors moving clothes around in their closet - horrible screeching noise of hangers on the rod! The "professional spa practitioners" were obviously inexperienced - my husband and I were both left disappointed in our spa services.

If we stayed here again, we'd likely rent one of the cottages rather than stay in the lodge, to have more privacy, quiet and be able to cook our own food.

We stayed here for 2 nights . First night in hotel and the second night in the cottage. The hotel rooms are regular size , clean but not wow. The cottage was great, 2 floors , not large but ok if you have the 2 bedroom one .The one bedroom is one floor of the cottage with someone else on the other floor. Grounds are great nature at it's best. The beach is really nice large waves and nice sand . Misquitos were very heavy even with machine in the back yard . Would love to go again but it's too expensive for what you get . Yes it's nice but not that nice . Great for large group to be together if cottages are together.

We as a family of four and dog in tow had one of the best weekends when we stayed at Crowbush. We could not believe that we could bring the dog , but on arriving everyone was so welcoming. Our 13 year old twins had a blast. They loved the walk to the beach down the golf course and under the netting. They had lots to do and loved the beach. We spent from 8am to noon on the beach.

The cottage had everything we needed. Thanks for making our staff so great.

We spent a week in a cottage. The resort looks abandoned- no one at any time in the main lobby. Quite eerie. My child hoped to make new friends there-Alas, this is not a child friendly resort. The beach is undeveloped, most chairs are broken. One has to bring the towels from the hotel (main building) and it is quite a distance to get to the beach. You have to call for "transportation". The golf cart type of a vehicle picks up guests from the cottages and drives them to the beach. This was annoying actually. I thought that I'd leave my room and walk over to the beach. Instead, I had to call the front desk and ask them to send the "transportation". Sometimes we had to wait for at least 15 minutes, usually it was there within 6 minutes. However, it has eventually become an annoyance. The rooms are very small and are reminiscent of Comfort Inn type of accommodations, except for a fireplace, perhaps. Nothing is 5 star quality. Everything is just AVERAGE, not even pretty. Once again, what bothered me the most was that the resort seemed empty, and not child friendly... The pool is very, very basic and it is always empty. My child used to sing songs out loud while playing the pool, and why not? There was hardly anyone around to complain! Everything looks plain and inexpensive. We paid a fortune for the cottage that in, my opinion, was not worth it. We drove to Charlottetown for lunches and dinners and it was tiring to do on a daily basis. Since there was nothing else to do on the property, we chose to drive 30 minutes each way to eat out. The club house's food was ok, the service was ok, except for one night, when we had to wait for 1 hour 30 minutes to get 2 sandwiches! We were there in the first week of August- the water in the ocean was freezing. My child was splashing alone (again, no kids around) but I could not even put my foot into the icy water. All in all, it was boring as hell, and it was the worst vacation of my life. There is really nothing to do in PEI in general. No classical music concerts, no decent museums. The water is always cold. Even the water parks suck there. We went to one that is considered to be the best, in Cavendish- it has 4 water slides, all interconnected (basically one big slide) and nothing else with water, yet it is called a "water park". All other things in that park are geared towards children under 5 years of age. I dont recommend anyone to waste time schlepping to Cavendish for a water park. Neither the "museum" that boasts to have a Kings Tut's burial chamber replica. Don't go there, it is ALL cheap fakes, not a real museum.

Stayed there for a night with another couple. We had separate rooms, they were on first level and we were in the basement. Intially I was worried but turned out to be fine since it wasn't a basement but more like a walk out on to the lawn so it was a mini backyard. The guys golfed while the girls went to the beach so it was nice and relaxing.
