“Great Getaway”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

I recently stayed for 2 nights at the Kingfisher with several girlfriends. The accommodations were clean and relaxing. One night we had a wonderful 3 hour dinner - looking out at the view, stringing out the delicious food and enjoying plenty of humour from our server. We shared a bread plate, cheese plate and oysters (not as good); I loved the variety of veggies with my steak; and the desserts were a great size to share. We also did the hydropath. It was unlike any other spa experience - so different, so much fun to do with a bunch of friends (I think 4 at a time is max). Bring your own flip flops though (they supply robes) and make sure you don't wear your best swimsuit as the natural looking sandstone in the hydropath was a little rough on the old swimsuit fabric.

My sister and I went to Vancouver Island this past summer as a girls getaway trip and had a lovely stay at Kingfisher. We enjoyed the spa facilities - steam cave, hot tub and pool with a small waterfall that worked great on my shoulders. We had a few meals at the restaurant and all the dishes we had were excellent. The fact that I remember I had the grilled seafood flatbread and a small seafood chowder meant it was memorable and delicious. We stayed in the Orca suite, which was comfortably spacious, new and clean, and right by the water. The two vanity sinks in room were a godsend as we are both slow getting ready in the morning. A truly relaxing time, and a great getaway from our everyday.

Room Tip: Aim for the suites, as when we visited, they were the ones that had been renovated with new furnishi...

We (a couple from Victoria) have taken advantage of great low-season rates to drive up to the Kingfisher Resort near Courtenay for several years. They have excellent package deals, especially if you go mid-week. Our package included three nights in an oceanfront Orca suite, which is spacious and well-appointed (although we did move the furniture around a bit to take better advantage of the view and the fireplace). The kitchen and bathroom seemed to be newly updated, and everything worked well, With good wifi, we took our computers to do some work as well - but it's hard to work when sitting at the window watching porpoises, sea lions, birds, deer, etc. We even enjoy stormy weather there, since the room is so cosy with music on, fireplace going, and a full kitchen.
Our package included the Hydropath - such a treat, and we always look forward to it. It also included two treatments (we chose massages), gift card that can be used to buy items or pay part of the room charge, and credit at the restaurant, which was excellent. We sat in the outdoor hot tub one night in the rain; a wonderful sensation!

We missed the November special - I really wanted an oceanfront room with a fireplace, but because we have been to Kingfisher several times, we took a regular room (upstairs) with a view of the gardens, spa and of course the ocean. We keep going back to Kingfisher as we have never been disappointed - clean, comfortable, friendly staff, excellent food (a little pricey, so be prepared). Use of the hot tub, pool, sauna and steam room are included. Spa treatments are naturally extra, and a relaxing massage is just what the Dr ordered! Yes, we will continue to go back to Kingfisher for wonderful restful getaways.

Room Tip: We always ask for first floor - lovely view and nobody moving about above you.
