After starting our tour through Wonderful British Columbia in Vancouver, our first stop was Osoyoos, as this was recommended by our specialized agency. This was a big mistake! We can only recommend that you go from Hope directly to Kelowna and avoid Osoyoos - just no reason to go there if you're from Europe and had a beach vacation during the past 20 years. Osoyoos is a rather small place around a nice lake with little to no real beach. It is warm. Correct. And reminds people of Mexico. Yet, if you had been to Italy, France, Spain you are utterly disappointed. Further, the hotel choice was really a bad one. We were travelling as a party of 4, with 2 teenagers. We booked a room with 2 queen beds, assuming based on description that this would work out well. We arrived around 6pm, as we had to get the car in the morning. Upon arrival, we were told that despite having the reservation and voucher, there was only one room left, the 'famous' 109. You can read other reviews on this room. They are all correct. I'm travelling regularly and all parts of the world. this is the worst room I've ever had. There is NO daylight. The 2nd queen bed was in fact a small sofa. Absolutely impossible to have our teenagers sleep on it. There wasn't even enough space for all our luggage in the room. The furniture is very dated and with the missing daylight, you feel claustrophobic. Obviously, we still asked for changing the room, but it was not possible. I can't say the reception was very helpful. What should we do? We booked a second room in the hotel nearby, the Holiday Inn, which was also very bad quality and value for 250CND$!!!!
Hence, our recommendation is to avoid Osoyoos completely and go to Kelowna.
