Excellent if you want a more inexpensive but still nice option to Rathtrevor Beach. The unit I stayed in only had sliding doors in each of the bedrooms (no windows) AND they were put on backwards so you couldn't leave them open at night with a piece of wood to block entrance. Frustrating because it was really hot. It has...

Thank you for your recent stay with Ocean Trails, and we’re pleased that you thought our accommodations were excellent and “lower priced.” While we’ll gladly take the compliment, we can assure you our prices have nothing to do with our proximity to any other resort in the area, but due to a conscientious effort to always offer both our longer...

I have stayed at Ocean Trails for a few years now. I have found the staff to be overall courteous and accommodating. The cottages are clean. The grounds are tidy. The resort is close to the beach. This past stay was the best in terms of the effort they made to put myself and my daughter and family right next...

We are returning customers to Ocean Trails for multiple reasons: 1. Steps to the warmest part of the ocean in Canada and one of the largest sandy beaches to let your children roam without worry. Why not worry? When the tide is coming in the water is only waste deep for a good 500m - 1km! 2. Pool, hot tub,...

You’ve really made an excellent shopping list of “Why Parksville, BC?” And we’re so pleased that Ocean Trails is one of those items that help bring all the others together. And just so you have another factoid: we have the warmest water north of Cabo San Lucas!

My family and I had a great time here! Staff are nice! Rooms are clean and presentable. We will book at Ocean Trails again. Overall very nice place. Pool and hot tub were a hit with my family and a very short walk to the ocean, beautiful white soft sand and swimming in the ocean was pleasantly warm.

we have stayed at OTR six times over the last 11 years. My parents wintered there for about 20, which is how we discovered the place. Unfortunately all suites are not the same and the second bdrm during our latest visit had 2 twin beds as opposed to a queen. Suites are chosen randomly upon arrival although you can request...

Thank you for continuing the family tradition of holidaying at Ocean Trails. Our Website in fact does list the various room configurations, and we and most guests find it fortunate that we do. Not every grouping is the same, and the fact that we have different configurations assists in these different groupings. Please do call ahead if you need a...

If you don't mind not having some of the services offered by a "full service" hotel, such as having your room cleaned daily or an on-site restaurant, then this is a great place to bring a family. Though most units do not share the spectacular ocean views that some of the neighbouring resorts boast, this resort more than makes up...

Each season has a very distinct “feel” in the Parksville area. Falls are absolutely gorgeous. Leaves changing, warm days and cool nights make for some of the most romantic getaways you’ll find anywhere. Seasonal menu changes are found in local restaurants, and there’s nothing like a warm hot tub in our courtyard on a cool night. Please call us and...
