Definitely best location in town. Right on the beach and super close to the main strip of stores/cafes/restaurants. Shoppers Drug Mart is across the street and the local grocery store is also a 5 minute walk away.

We booked a 1 bedroom suite and was upgraded to a two bedroom so our 1.5 year old had her own room. Also, high chairs were available upon request. A nice surprise for when we arrived.

My only complaint would be when I made the actual booking. I called in three times to confirm my booking since I did not receive a confirmation email after the first 2 tries. After we arrived and checked in, I later found out the front desk STILL messed up our reservation and made 2 bookings under my name. There were no penalties for me, but it was annoying. I think staff can be better trained on reservations.

Otherwise, everything was great and everyone was friendly and helpful. Would return again.

From the end of Feb to the end of March the Watermark was our home away from home and it was perfect in every way.
The entire staff - reservations, front desk, housekeeping, maintenance and banquet staff all contributed to making our stay very enjoyable. Their friendliness and efficiency were greatly appreciated.
The views from our living room, both bedrooms and balcony were amazing and the resort's location is the best in town!
Our 2 bedroom suite was well equipped including washer & dryer.
We have already booked for next year.

The Watermark is a really nice resort for families with pets or couples. We enjoyed our stay and loved our meal at the Wine Bar. Perfect location for walking pretty much anywhere in town. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. I wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: We were on the mountain side, I was worried the traffic noise would be bothersome but we didn't...

We stayed here the first weekend of April. The kids rated the pool as #1 out of all the hotels we have stayed at (which are quite a few). Grocery store next door so you don't have to load up on food to bring. Enjoyed the tranquility of having my coffee on our balcony at dawn overlooking the pool and lake. Thought I was in a coffee commercial, complete with the steam coming out of the cup. Felt the stress melt away... We didn't dine but used the kitchen amenities to the fullest. Great to have an in room washer and dryer. We can't wait to go again. Thanks goes out to all the staff.

Room Tip: Try to get a lakeview room; the setting is just superb.

We are so pleased that you and your family had a wonderful stay at the Resort. The pool is fantastic and the location is ideal for shopping as you had mentioned. Looking forward to your return visit for the next time you need the stress to melt away.

Great hotel, great location, friendly people, walking distance to bars, restaurants and grocery store. Only downside was that the pool was not open yet, but we made lots of use of the hot tub and steam room. Spa was top class and treatments fine. Wine and tapas bar fun - hit and miss on the actual entrees, but drinks were fabulous and the convenience made up for the few orders not well liked (meatloaf just not great and scallops were in some kind of curry spice). Bike rental onsite was very convenient. Go for the lakeside view - made all the difference! Very quiet. Robes in every room!

Thank you for posting your comments regarding your recent stay with us. Your feedback is very much appreciated. The location of the Resort is certianly ideal; being in the heart of downtown yet also on the shores of Osoyoos Lake. We look forward to welcoming you back should your travels bring you to Osoyoos once again.

From the moment I booked the hotel to the time we left...everything was perfect! Great location, amazing place for families and suites that are totally self contained even with washers and dryers! I got the idea that they wanted me there and they did everything they could to prove that.

The reservations attendant was so helpful and one of the most pleasant people I have ever booked a room with. The staff were amazing and attentive. The room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. The bar had great food and great service.

Although we didn't get to use the pool as it was out of season, it looked great and the facilities accommodated families easily. The pool area was lake side and had a slide as well. The view of the lake was beautiful with a nice walk around it.

The town of Osoyoos was quaint. Be aware that grocery stores and most stores close early. There are only two grocery stores with one being right beside the hotel...it closes at 8pm. For those of us from the Coast, this was a shock so plan accordingly. Lots to see and if you like a visit to a winery, you have lots to choose from.

Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: There are several types of rooms to choose from. One and Two Bedroom suites and some with dens. Lo...

We stayed for 1 week in mid Feb. and we were so pleased with everything about our stay here. The front desk staff were so pleasant when we checked in and so helpful to us, as we had never been to Osoyoos before. The snowbird coffee in the AM was wonderful to meet others who were there for the same reason, to escape winter!! The maid service was fantastic, it was like they enjoyed their job and that is hard to find these days!!! We will definitely be back next winter!! B&M Castor,AB

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor overlooking the lake and it was great!!
