“Surfing”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We had a very good experience. The lodge staff was excellent, fast , prepared and helpful . The food and wait staff are great (KYLE, PAUL and others) , we had surf lessons with ROBIN! and felt well taken care of and not rushed at all. The beach is fantastic and not crowded. Many seating areas outside. There is a hot tub and sauna, the cleanest and best change/shower rooms you will ever see with lockers. All items you need are on site, see LOU at the surf shop ... very sweet, after our lesson the photos of us were on the TV in the shop. There are games and movies in the lobby you can take to your room
Overall it was a great all in one experience, I would go there again.
Bottom line.... $1061.00 for three days in a room with private surf lesson and 100.00 in free dining. That includes the wetsuit and surfboard. Will go back again, did not really want to leave.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms lead right out to beach, second floor rooms would have the view of the beach. Kee...

We stayed for two nights in May 2014. Ive been lucky enough to have travelled quite a bit and stayed in some top hotels, but This is simply one of the best hotels we've stayed in. The accomodation was fantastic, our room was spacious, well equipped, clean and had a beautiful sea view.
The staff were all really helpful and friendly, they made you feel like nothing was too much trouble and they made every effort to make sure you were happy and well looked after. The staff at this hotel are what made our stay at the lodge so great! (Especially our waiter Kyle, who we felt made an extra effort).

We enjoyed breakfast and dinner and the lodge on both days. The food is delicious!!

The facilities at the lodge include surf board / wetsuit hire which we made use of. The staff were again super friendly and helpful. This was our first experience of surfing and we loved it!
They also offer surf lessons and boating sightseeing trips, which unfortunately we didn't have time to do.

I think what impressed me most about this lodge was the feeling of being in luxury accommodation / surroundings, but with a very relaxed and casual vibe/feeling. The staff were fantastic and the location is just the best!
I had so much fun on this trip and this really did make our trip a one to remember!

We will definitely be back! If your thinking of booking up, do it!!
Thanks

This is our 5th stay at Long Beach Lodge, and still love coming here. The staff is very accommodating, and friendly. I could sit and watch the world go by in the Great Room, and love to see the surfer's head out for the day. My only disappointment….they have discontinued the buffet breakfast. Please bring it back, and just charge me for it…and not for weekends only. We would love to return again next year, but the breakfast issue really bothers me. I hate changes!!!

Room Tip: Top floor for the views….unless you have a pet(ground floor)

Thank you for your feedback, I am delighted you enjoyed your 5th visit to the Lodge.

The decision to discontinue the buffet breakfast had been considered for several years and the change was not taken lightly. There were a number of considerations, there was tremendous waste each day as the buffet had to look full every day to the very last guest. Once food is added to a buffet, it is considered contaminated and cannot be reused, this became even a bigger issue when we improved the buffet and added protein. No matter how we improved the offerings, we could not satisfy our European guests, which make up a large proportion of our visitors. Also, we wanted to improve the menu and add better quality, even the coffee was greatly improved. We wanted to add more options, full table service, or the "grab and go option"

The cost of running a resort, to the high standard that guests now expect, is a very costly operation. Wages and cost of supplies are continually increasing, utilities, insurance and taxes are also huge costs. Maintenance costs and upgrades are another $500,000 annually.
The buffet, in the end, was costing the company $500,000 annually and rather then increase room rates we believed if would be wiser to end the buffet, all things considered.

Maybe more detail than you needed, but as a regular guest, I would like you to have all the information.

We stayed for 3 nights May 11,12,13 2014.
We had a very nice ground floor ocean side room.

The main thin is that the staff is wonderful. They were very thoughtful and helpful.
We felt that Monica in the great room went out of her way to accommodate us. She seemed to know what my wife needed.

We very much enjoyed watching gthe surfers (something our son did 50 yrs ago.

This place was on my " bucket list" as a vacatin spot and it did NOT disappoint!!! We booked the penthouse suite and it was incredible. Watching the surfers from our balcony & listening to the magnificent ocean as wall as soaking in the large tub that overlooked the beach was a dream. The drive from Victoria along the the Pacific Rim Highway was one of the most gorgeous drives we have taken. The staff at the resort were the BEST ever and it felt like we were leaving friends when we checked out! Thank you so much Mike, Monica, Chris, Shawn, Kyle, Josh, Julia, Dianna, Matty, & Tariq!!! Several of the staff commented that working there was like being part of a family and that was quite apparent.
The food was five star and the crab cakes were the best we have ever eaten. We planned on trying out some other local restaurants for dinner, but after our first meal there, we changed our minds! Hard to beat perfection!!!
We spent our days combing the beaches, exploring the rainforest, and hiking all the hidden gems of trails. We also booked a three hour wildlife sightseeing boat tour and Josh was so interesting about all his knowledge of the island as well as taking us to see the sea lions, puffins, eagles, otters and seals!
Long Beach Lodge Resort met all of our expectations and more... If you are looking for a relaxing, laid back, adventurous, friendly, accomadating resort...look no further !!!!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money on an ocean front room with a balcony. We left our balcony door opened all day...

As a retired couple we are flexible in choosing our time and able to take advantage of "specials" We have enjoyed all 5 stays at the Long Beach Lodge. We usually take a superior room but this time opted for a standard room without sea view. It was perfectly adequate, very good beds and well appointed with large tub and separate shower. Service friendly throughout.

Food good but as a diabetic disappointed in breakfast. Asked for porridge which was on the menu but listed accompanied by creme brule. Not possible to get plain porridge as it was explained that it is premixed with maple syrup (sugar). Would also have appreciated more healthy selections at dinner.

Always enjoy the walks along Cox Bay and ocean breezes.

Room Tip: If you are indifferent regarding an ocean view the rear rooms are much better value.
