What to know: the location is stunningly beautiful, and the accommodations are modern and very comfortable. Given the location, on a pristine stretch of sand near an ancient forest, you appreciate the efficiency of the resort’s ecological footprint.

The good: comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchens, the sauna and hot tub, and the beach.

The bad: service, one hot tub for the entire resort, early closing time for hot tub and sauna (9pm). This is a resort for retirees, and families with kids. The housekeeping service every third day is a drag (if it comes at all), and the small hot tub is a quite silly considering this is a surf town, and just about anyone who has been out in the water is hoping to relax in the at the end of the day. There as literally a line the first night we arrived, with parents and their kids waiting to get in.

Advice: Build a second and third hot tub. The Long Beach Lodge next door has a tub for every cabin unit. Not sure why the builder were thinking. Did they run out of money?

Summery: super nice place with a few flaws that make you think twice about the cost.

Steps from the beach, clean and cozy condos. The atmosphere is perfect for a restful weekend and exploring the outdoors. We recommend this place for families or couples who need an escape. Pet friendly.

This suite is modern, large and very well designed and includes a small outside sitting area. The washer and dryer came in very handy as we were mid trip. One minute walk to the beach on Cox Bay. There is also a common hut tub and exercise room.

I loved this resort, we couldn't have wished for a better apartment to stay in. It was clean, well equipped, and finished to a high standard. The beach is right on your doorstep, and it's beautiful. Surfing was brilliant fun, and afterwards you can relax in their hot tub before using one of their Webber BBQ's and then using their fireplace in their shared area. It's just perfect - probably the highlight of our trip despite staying in other 5 star hotels for our BC holiday. Lovely, friendly team on reception too!

Our family of 4 adults and 4 children (13,7,3,3 years old) occupied two properties. My wife and daughter (13 years) stayed in the one bedroom. Both my sister in laws and 3 children stayed in the 2 bedroom.

Pros: location, quiet after 9pm (dusk), next to beach, customer service/front desk, mosquito/bug screens on every window

Noise from construction of new resort next door. At this time, the frame is complete and they we're adding the stairs
Construction on Saturday am

No lift to the second floor. The 2 bedroom was on the second floor and I got a good work out lugging everything up and down the stairs.

New sheets every 3rd day. Over our 6 nights, House keeping came only once. You can request new towels if you want.

Overall, I would stay again. This was peak season so we feel the price reflected the value of our stay.

Location next to Cox bay beach
