    Needs some love

    We were disappointed by the overall quality of this experience for the price. We had an oceanview room in the lodge. We could hear the neighboring room's TV blaring through our wall, and the guests in the room above us stomping around late at night and early in the morning. So it wasn't peaceful, quiet, or private, it felt more like being in a motel. The condition of the property was in desperate need of help. When entering our room, the screen door to the balcony was stuck open diagonally, and there were many large wasps buzzing around the balcony (it seemed like a nest was nearby). There were also spider webs all around the balcony table, so we didn't feel comfortable using the balcony at all. The hallway outside the room had visible spider webs on the ceiling with spider eggs in them, I was surprised nobody had though to vacuum them down during daily cleaning. It creeped me out. We decided to eat at the restaurant, which was a grave mistake. The steak was wildly overpriced and extremely mediocre -- and it had a slice of cheese on top? The one redeeming quality of the stay was the walk on the boardwalk that goes out to the private tents. This was a beautiful part of the property, and I think staying in one of the tents would still be amazing for the privacy and views alone.

    Other than rhe dusts on the floors,and windows, overall it's a decent and relaxing place to stay. The staffs are prompt and accommodating. The ocean view is spectacular. The restaurant's foods are great and service is pleasant. It was,a great stay for our family for much needed quiet relaxing vacation and fresh air.

    The cabins need to be updated. Furniture is very much worn. Washroom was terrible and in very much need of an update. As a resort that is trying to promote itself as an exclusive high end resort we were dissatisfied. The grounds and the units need to be updated. Staff was fine and friendly. Restaurant was just ok.

  • 6.0.Good

    My husband and I stayed in the two bedroom suite with our two daughters. We booked this resort for the location, scenery and pool. The location and scenery was nice but the pool was not heated and was freezing, even my kids didn’t want to use it. When we asked about it they said they were not heating the pool this year. Perhaps during a heat wave it would have been nice but we were there in early August and it wasn’t hot. The restaurant food was okay. We found a broken wine glass under the coach which means they weren’t doing a great cleaning. The tents looked very nice but I wouldn’t go back and try them as our initial experience wasn’t great.

    Nice property. Seemed like they were slightly under staffed but that is typical these days with Pandemic. Will definitely stay there again.

    We booked a 2 bedroom suite in the lodge. There was a Queen, two singles and a futon in the main area. The futon was covered in dust and there was a pair of underwear hanging to dry in the closet upon our arrival. The suite had no patio, deck or balcony so we walked to main patio for morning coffee or evening drinks. I think “suite” implies a nicer room. There was a coffee maker but the only sink for water was in the bathroom. The resort itself is beautifully located. We went swimming our first day from the rocky beach/kayak launch. There’s a better dock but the door was locked. Say 2 and 3 we reached around and opened the lock. We went kayaking and it was lovely. Lots of seals and scenery to enjoy. Staff were all polite and helpful but they were understaffed (Covid?) and unable to help at times. Sechelt had great restaurants. I’d recommend El Segundo and Batch 44. Family went downhill biking at Coast Gravity and the hotel was conveniently located. We had a couples massage and it was amazing. I’m a tent by the ocean with the sound of water lapping against the shore. I’d return again but only to stay in a tent.

    Unique 'glamping' experience with out of the world views of being 'in the trees' looking out to the ocean. Sitting under the stars at night listening to the rolling waves lapping the shore. The tents have everything you need for a restful and relaxing stay where you are sleeping in comfort with spectacular views.

    Property is in a beautiful location, staff were excellent (doing their best, but majorly under-staffed) Our room was awful, absolutely filthy. The hotel specifies that they are doing everything they can to stay safe during the pandemic, but our room clearly hadn't been cleaned properly for months, thick dust, ant traps, cobwebs, earbuds, all left behind the bed. Clumps of hair on the floor. Revolting. We would have checked out if we hadn't arrived so late and with a child. The manager arranged a proper clean the following day, but the room itself was very underwhelming. I wouldn't stay again. I think if you are a couple the tents overlooking the water would be beautiful, but I'd avoid staying in the main building.
